The food was disappointing. We went because google recommended Babette’s for the creme brûlée. That was disappointing as well. The service was fine. Our server was very friendly. But with an almost empty restaurant when we arrived, we were seated right next to the kitchen and also beside one of the only other groups of people in the dining room. So our host had to actually pull our table over a little to even allow us to get seated. It’s a beautiful place in a nice location and the ambiance was very nice. I enjoyed my wine and the other wines available looked like good options. Our salads were good. Overall, it was a big let down though. I would definitely not recommend Babette’s to anyone.
Quite simply, top to bottom, the best meal I've ever had in Atlanta! Food, service, friendliness, atmosphere are all impressive! Every course was exceptional, and every course topped the previous course! The lamb chops are absolutely to die for!! Loved Babettes's.
Every bite of five dishes was delicious. I prefer quality ingredients, simply prepared. Babette's Cafe did just that with the shrimp and grits, and braised rib tip specials, as well as the fried oysters and cassolette menu items.
The richness of the jus, the textures, the depth and layers of the flavors were what struck me then and have stayed with me. You (probably) cannot make this at home, and that makes it worth a visit for me.
Add to that a Malbec and a dried cherry tart dessert and you cannot do much better at any price.
Babette’s is our favorite for special occasions. We’ve been patrons for over 12 years and will keep coming back.
Babette’s Cafe never disappoints. Immaculate service from longstanding staff.
Food was great, authentic French. Small but well curated wine selection.
My wife and I have been dining at Babette’s a couple times a year for more than nine years, so I think it’s safe to say we know what a wonderful restaurant it has been. Food is always well-prepared, drinks from the bar are always perfect and service is always attentive. The menu changes nicely with the seasons, yet there are always a few favorite dishes available. We have tried so many of the different entrees that I can safely recommend them all. However, I will say that the desserts are always unique and exquisite. We will no doubt continue to enjoy dining at Babette’s Cafe for many years to come.
We had the most fantastic waitress, the food was great, the whole decor and style of the restaurant was wonderful, couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Valentine’s Day dinner. I assumed it would be pretty busy so no surprise there. The bar tender was entirely overwhelmed. He only addressed us once, about 5 minutes after we sat at the bar. After that he didn’t address anyone at the bar. Several people walked awY because he was so busy making drinks for the restaurant. We were at the bar for about 20 minutes total and in that time had a single drink. On top of that he wasn’t very personable, granted he was very busy so I guess he really didn’t have time to talk. The manager/ owner stepped behind the bar for a moment to make a couple of drinks but that didn’t remedy much.
We sat about 13 minutes after our reservation. A little longer than I hoped but not terrible considering how busy they were. Our server was fine, the food was prompt, as far as quality it was good, I wasn’t wowed but I didn’t feel like I over paid either. Maybe I’ll try again on a night when it won’t be packed.
Had a lovely Valentine’s Day dinner. Experienced a little bit of drama with incorrect reservation info on their end, but they calmly took care of it and had us seated quickly on a very busy night. Really terrific service and delicious food. Tasted fresh and home made, a dinner you’d expect to enjoy in a little place in an Italian countryside or the South of France. Looking forward to returning soon.
Great!! From start to finish!
Wonderful dining experience tonight for Valentine’s Day and Chef Marla is amazing! I called ahead to inquire about the menu because I have some dietary restrictions (Keto) and to my surprise, I received a call from the chef herself shortly after to clarify my dietary needs. When we arrived, we were greeted by the chef and a really sweet hostess who seated us immediately. Our waiter let me know that he was aware of my dietary needs and gave excellent service. And the food never disappoints! I enjoyed the roasted half duck with a creamy parsnip purée, grilled Brussels sprouts with roasted pecans and I added a side of roasted cauliflower. Absolutely delicious and not a morsel left on the plate! My husband had grilled filet mignon with Gorgonzola sauce and loved his meal as well. Great food and excellent service every time! Thank you Chef Marla for going out of your way to make sure my food was perfect!
The food was superb!!!! I was a little cold by the window.
Food outstanding (as always). Well priced. Great service.
We celebrated my boyfriend's birthday at Babette's. The atmosphere was wonderful and the cafe had great charm and character. And the food was phenomenal. We were in a group of four, but next time we plan to have a romantic date...just the two of us.
