First time dining in this gem of a place! The food was fantastic; and for a French restaurant, the food on the plates were plentiful. The prices were very reasonable too! Service was great and our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. I have now found one of my favorite new restaurants and have a new place that I can take my out of town guests to.

The 3 of us were very disappointed. My Branzino was dry and overcooked & my friends Rack of Lamb was bland & not served warm. Clearly prepared in advance & left under a heat lamp.

We went for Thanksgiving dinner and although it was a limited menu the choices were excellent. Loved the turkey gumbo soup. All the desserts were very good. Service was excellent. We enjoyed our meal and plan to go back to the New Year's Eve 6 course dinner.

We decided to lower the stress level this year and eat Thanksgiving lunch out. Petite Violette provided a meal there was no way I could match myself. There were a choice of two soups, two salads, an entree and a dessert. I chose Andouille gumbo to start - I grew up near new Orleans and there is a BIG difference between a chef who knows how to make gumbo and one who doesn't - this was rich and silky and reminded me of home. A wedge salad with a bacon chipotle ranch was a delish second course. The main course was as tasty as it was beautiful - pan seared scallops in a delicate cream sauce with cous cous and sautéed spinach - it was simply delightful. Since I try to keep my carbs low, I let my friend choose a second dessert and take it home - good choice: bread pudding with nuts and a whiskey sauce. We were very impressed and it was actually more reasonably priced than many other places in town - $48.50/pp. Definitely a stress reducer in my book.

Always a treat! Food was good especially crepes and salad. Quiche Lorraine a bit too rich and overpowering.
Noise level more than customary.

Great old school fancy french.
I like jazz and kept one eye on the band near whom we were seated so I was okay with the energetic vibe.
There is no open table category for parking / valet but that is the only thing on which they'd get dinged.

Had drinks at the bar. One was great, the other very average.

Appetizers and dinner were great with a wonderful meal and great service. Have been here before and the standards are still very high at Petite!

The apple desert was fabulous.

We enjoyed a delightful evening at Petite Violette. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was excellent and there was very pleasant music in the background, not intrusive, but a volume which added to the pleasure of the evening.

Alway a great meal! Their menu has so much to offer. I have tried many of the items on the menu and have never been disappointed. The entire staff in the restaurant is outstanding from the servers to the manager. This has become my favorite restaurant and I reside in Johns Creek!

My husband lived in England for a year, and he loves Beef Wellington. He said " This is the best Beef Wellington I have ever in Atlanta, it's just as good, if not better than the ones I had in Lindon."

We requested and received a nice quiet table. So many places are too loud to have a conversation. Not here. Our server was one of the best we've had in a long time. She recommended an excellent wine and guided us expertly through the menu. The food was very tasty. We will be back for sure.

Our small group (3-5 of us) eats there every couple of months and we love it. We are warmly greeted, our servers are consistently helpful and exceptionally pleasant, and we always enjoy whatever we eat. It is a perennial favorite among other friends and neighbors as well.

First visit since Petit Auberge merger, wasn't confident it would be the same as previously. Happily, it was, with the addition of an Oktoberfest menu reflecting the Alsatian influence. The best of both worlds, you might say. Had the coq au vin, couldn't have been better and a great buy. My companion had the very generous trout. And the German platter that one of our table mates had was something that one would be embarrassed to finish. The atmosphere was, as always, charming and relaxing. If I had to find a negative it was the slow bar service.

My wife and I have been to Petite Violette and the former name, Petite Auberge, many times over the years. Once again it met all of our expectations. Definitely a great restaurant for very good French and German type food. The October menu has very authentic German type food in addition to the regular menu. We definitely recommend Petite Violette.
