We had a wonderful clean experience. Our service ware was wrapped in plastic for cleanliness. Tables were spaced perfectly. People were sitting outside too. There were only 3 of us dining inside. So very safe! The food was amazing. The Reuben was the best my husband had ever had. My salmon spinach salad was absolutely amazing!

Beef Wellington was very good. If you like your fillet rare it is perfect. Ask for a few minutes more on the bake for med rare.

Great service and atmosphere. All around a fine dining experience!

A classic French cuisine of highest quality yet very reasonably priced. We've been for Valentine's Day and my birthday. It's now our special occasion "go to." Social distancing was excellent and staff wore masks at all times.

As always, Violette did not disappoint. My Lamb Burger was amazing! I felt safe in the midst of the current pandemic. Everything was clean, masks were worn and social distancing was implemented.

A true neighborhood gem for a very long time. The food is exquisite; no matter what you choose to have. The service is friendly and attentive without being intrusive. A wide range of choices for appetizers, main courses and desserts means everybody in our family always finds something they enjoy every time we come. Smart casual atmosphere; Covid-19 compliant for our latest visit; relaxing and enjoyable.

It has been a while since we dined at Petite Violette, but it did not disappoint. The food was great and the ambiance superb. The service was very friendly and responsive, but it was somewhat awkward due to the COVID-19 restrictions. All-in-all, I thought they did their best to make it a safe and enjoyable experience.

We've dined at Petite Violette since the early days of Petite Auberge in Toco Hills and when Violette was across I-85 off Briarcliff and Clairmont. It has always delivered a wonderful experience and we were pleased to support the restaurant during the period of take-out only these last few months. We are thrilled to again enjoy dining in - or, as we did this weekend, dining on the patio on a lovely late spring day! Bon appetit!

Totally sweet old-fashioned French food. All of the classics, reasonably priced wine list and great service. Our favorites: crab cakes, bread pudding and (weirdly) the side salads. Also a bottle of Gevrey Chambertin for < $100.

The employees were all nice, beautiful elegant restaurant. Yummy food. But the only reason I didn't give 4-5stars, is they only offer valet. It was a Monday night, an valet guy said I'd have to park on street if I didn't valet. So I did, an theyr were so many parking spots available. I always refuse to do valet. . My server was awesome, she took great care of me an everything was served in good timing. An the salmon was so yummy.

Plan on returning. Few small things of note kept my review "honest" but nothing that is a turn off. Ambiance is fantastic, it is "upscale" without pretentiousness, the noise level was perfect. Great experience all around.

The French Onion was outstanding. The Veal and the Beef Short Ribs were also very good. The pricing is very fair for the level of food offered. I found the atmosphere charming . The Bread Pudding was delicious to cap off the night.

Petite Violette is always very nice. We were there for the New Orleans dinner and enjoyed the special menu items. We hope the restaurant adds the oyster rockefeller to their regular menu.

The food and service was great! I will be back! The food was hot and fresh and the desert was amazing. We wanted to get the jambalaya and grits but my husband and I don't eat pork. Another friend that was with us, her lamb chops were over cooked.

I treated my husband to his birthday dinner at Petite Violette, and everything was perfect from the start to the finish. We started with a bottle of delicious OneHope sauvignon blanc and dinner rolls. My husband loves oysters, so we shared the oyster appetizer. Since that was very filling, I ate the crabcakes appetizer as my entree, which was enough with the side salad that came with the crabcakes. My husband enjoyed his lamb rack entree. We shared the best chocolate chip whiskey bread pudding for dessert that we have ever eaten - a wonderful balance of flavors and warmth with an ice cream scoop on the side. Our server Carson took excellent care of us.

When Violette and Petite Auberge joined forces a few years ago, they brought the best of both established restaurants together. Violette has the ambiance (including entertainment many nights each week) and signature classical French dishes and Auberge brings the cuisine of the Alsace region and a thriving olive oil boutique. On a recent visit, we sampled their New Orleans Mardi Gras menu and noted their partnership with the Atlanta Opera in their "Dinner & a Diva" series. This is also a great restaurant for wedding rehearsals and other group events.

The atmosphere was warm-cozy and elegant on a very rainy Thursday night. We immediately shed our wet coats and settled in for a perfect dinner. As a bonus, there was live entertainment (French ballads/songs). Our waiter was attentive but did not intrude on or hurry us. The food was prepared perfectly and tasted amazing.
