This is my 3rd time here and I must admit that I like it more each time. The food is absolutely fantastic - very very tasty and full of wonderful flavors. I've never had a bad meal there in 3 times - let alone appetizer or dessert. The service is also very good with the right balance of attentiveness without being overly intrusive.

I guess what I initially didn't like about it is the somewhat unusual location, which did not give me the best first impression. But I've changed my tune given the amazing food. The taste of every little item has been consistently great. I've tried friend's dishes and a couple of them were so good I actually think I'll be ordering things I normally don't even like from them.

Great experience. The health safety and social distancing accommodations were perfect and I felt more comfortable dining here than at any other restaurant I have ventured out to. The food and service was as great as ever and I didn’t feel at all vulnerable in dining here. One great change is the discontinuation of valet parking so no one is entering your car.

Excellent food and service as always. Social distancing was not a problem. The servers and other patrons wore masks when they were not eating. I was hesitant to dine in during this pandemic, however, I'm very happy we ventured out to La Petite Violette!!

A great quiet place to catch up with a good friend. There is always a nice wine selection, the menu seems to be fairly stable. The scallops were not on par as usual but the sea bass and the strawberry dessert were perfect !

Good but far from being great and for that price you definitely have better in a lot of different places in Atlanta.
Ive been warned but still wanted to try though.
Service was good nothing to say about that even though nobody said anything about our anniversary but its fine.
Foie gras : it was more a salad than a foie gras. And lemon vinaigrette with a foie gras is definitely not a fit. Not worth the $20.
Duck : the duck was good but the sides were disappointed : the sweet potato cake contained way too much flour so it was really dry and the green beans were swimming in a pool of butter sauce.

For the good points : the service, the xtra care in this pandemic crisis with distanced tables and covered silverware. The ambience was great, quiet with good music and the place is lovely.

It wasn’t terrible but i wont come back because too expensive for the food quality.

Great little romantic spot with an excellent wine selection. Crepes are made of cloud and dreams and maybe a tiny bit of flour to keep it together.

The food is really, really good from start to finish. For appetizers...the steamed mussels are a huge hit as well as the crab cakes and foie gras. For dinner, my family and I highly recommend the Beef Wellington, rack of lamb, duck, braised beef short ribs to name a few. Don't forget to leave room for dessert. We absolutely enjoyed the chocolate flourless mousse cake, the cheesecake and the creme brulee. A must try for your next celebration!

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!
