Petite Violette is MY go to restaurant. I am there a minimum of 4 times a month and enjoy each visit. The service is impeccable; food is fabulous and the French onion soup is beyond comparison with any restaurant in Atlanta as is the Creme Brulee!! This restaurant is my favorite as you can tell. I always made a reservation and have the same booth each visit. Wine list is excellent! There is nothing about Petite Violette that is not excellent and anyone who enjoys fine dining will enjoy an evening(orlunch) there.

Took our 3 teenage grandchildren who had never tasted french onion soup or mussels. They feel in love with both. We had tastings of the Petite Violette salad with hearts of palm which was excellent. Each ordered something different from the main menu and we all had a taste of each other's. Five thumbs up and smiles all around. The only complaint was that food was brought out too soon---before each of the dishes were finished.

The restaurant is always amazing BUT last night not so much. The quality and size of steak not even close to what it normally is. Three of us ordered the filet and all of them were the same. Hope it was just an off night or a new chef.

Petite Violette never ceases to impress us. We have been there 5 times now and the food and service is *consistently* amazing! I wish I could say I've tried other main courses besides the Beef Wellington, but it is my absolute favorite dish and they make it better than anywhere I've ever had it! The French Onion soup is not to be missed and the Bread Pudding is amazing. My husband had the lamb and said it was also fabulous. You can't go wrong here!

We went for our belated anniversary. The atmosphere was inviting, the food exquisite, and the service impeccable. They made sure it was extra special. I also love this is off the beaten path so not a hectic experience with parking in traffic. I highly recommend.

The NYEve dinner, 5 courses and sorbet, was a nice value. Our server - a young, tall, and slender African American gentleman (I forget his name!) was very gracious and attentive. Crab cake starter was excellent, as was lobster bisque and Beef Wellington. Hearts of palm salad was very good, though unusual with its inclusion of a small mound of mushrooms in a creamy dressing. We took home chocolate mousse cake desserts and enjoyed later. Wine pours are very generous - a nice change from many upscale places these days - and by-the-glass prices reasonable. The wine list is a bit limited, and for a traditional French restaurant seemed to give a heavy nod to California and New World wines. Overall, though, a very pleasant experience. Thank you for making the last evening of 2020 a memorable one.

Best classic French restaurant in Atlanta, hands down! Everything was delicious, especially the rack of lamb and scallops. Great value too for what you are getting, not inexpensive by any means but for the quality of food and service you receive it’s exceptional. And don’t leave without trying the bread pudding for dessert! We will be back for sure!!

It was a perfect birthday dinner. The dining room was inviting with white table cloths and candles on each table. Carson, our server, was very attentive and commended our choices of wines, appetizer (crab cakes), lobster and leeks crepe, and Coquilles St. Jacques entree. Everything was delicious, including the birthday bread pudding with ice cream to finish the meal.

Love this place. Wellington overcooked this time. Almost as if precooked. Pastry very limp and almost cool. Gotta watch this dish. It’s a signature. Still a very favorite place! Just will avoid this particular dish!

Our family loves Petite Violette. With an excellent menu that delivers classic French food mixed with a few Bavarian favorites, there is something for everyone on the menu. The service is attentive in a great way. We feel very safe dining at Petite Violette; we are impressed with the COVID-19 safety precautions they are taking.

We really enjoyed our lunch at Petite Violette. We were able to sit outdoors on the patio and socially distance from other diners. We were celebrating a birthday and the birthday dessert and the meal were very nice.
