Dining at Babette’s Café is like stepping into Chef/Owner Marla Adams’ home. She is equally as known for the incredibly creative Rustic French, Spanish and Italian cuisine that she creates, as she is for her welcoming personality. Marla digs deep into the food history and traditions of Europe and brings them to Atlanta with nuance, respect and artistry. For twenty-six years, Babette’s Café has offered the flavor of a restaurant that is tucked into the French countryside. The dining room offers a relaxed setting and the outdoor patio, which overlooks the serene setting of Freedom Park, makes diners forget that they are just minutes away from downtown Atlanta.

Every entree at our table was excellent. We had to leave early for the theatre and our waitress made sure that we were served giving us plenty of time.

Amazing food! I fell in love with French cuisine years ago when I visit and it's so hard to find anything to measure up and this is it! The French Baguette is amazing, fresh in house whipped butter, appetizers Fried shrimp and piroshki pork and veal, veal piccata and braised lamb dish! Simply amazing! I wish they had escargot that was my only wish. Everything else the ambiance romantic French feel. Waitress and Manager on staff was very courteous and thanked us sincerely for the business! I will be returning soon!

This was a top notch dining experience. The server, Janet, was professional and knowledgeable about the food selections and the history of the restaurant. The ambiance was romantic and intimate, as the setting is a house. There is a treehouse patio in the rear of the restaurant for more casual dining and/or group dining. Must tries are the piroshkis, the ravioli, veal picatta and the lamb chops. The creme brulee was divine! I will definitely be going back to Babette's. Marla did a fantastic job with this vision!

One of our favorites. The food and service were great. The tables can be a little cramped, and the clientele is definitely on the older end of the spectrum. The prices are quite reasonable for the quality of the food, and wine list was excellent and priced well also.

Another great visit to Babette's Cafe. Per usual the service was outstanding. Veal and Halibut entrees are highly recommended. This neighborhood gem continues to provide excellent value and ambience for a special occasion or anytime you want to be treated to superior food and drink by true professionals.

We love to revisit Babette’s regularly and often spend a birthday dinner there. Marla offers good variety in menu options, a tasteful balance of flavors and seasonings, and a nice wine list at very fair prices. We’ve never been disappointed and always enjoy the unpretentious, yet elegant, ambiance.

I highly recommend this restaurant. We were entertaining out of town guest and took a chance on this restaurant based on reviews. The location was great, easy to find and they have valet parking. The food and wine were outstanding. The tables were not stacked together so you could comfortably have a conversation without listening to others at the next table. We look forward to visiting again.
