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.

Truly European food! Very friendly and knowledgeable server Bri. I just wish they had a few more of the foods from the Game menu year round like Spätzle. We will definitely go back!

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.

It is hard to finish your meal when server is removing plates from your group. Food was fantastic!

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.

We had a 6:30 reservation and we were seated immediately. The table next to us were seated a few minutes later. They had their wine, appetizers and then salads before we even got our wine

Wonderful experience. I only wish they had kept the gruyère salad from the old menu. It was always my favorite.

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.

The food was excellent as usual, but the service was very slow and it was not very busy. I had a friend with me on her first visit, and I felt embarrassed about the service after I had bragged on the restaurant so much.
