Anis Cafe and Bistro

Tucked away in a sleepy side street in the heart of Buckhead, Anis is located in a converted house that has been renovated to look and feel like one of many little charming restaurants that you are likely to find in the Provence region in the south of France.

The menu is deeply rooted in the ingredients and aromas that give dishes from the French Mediterranean region their unique flavors.

Anis is comprised of an inside dining room and an outside patio area that is available for seating year round, and a charming little bar where you may enjoy a meal if you wish.

Widely known as one of the most romantic dining spots in the city, Anis is a great place to meet up with friends and can cater to large parties with ease.

Reservations are accepted and encouraged.

    Ribeye special was delicious. Green beans cooked to perfection. My friends' quiche and Croque Monsieur looked very good as well. But, there is only so much one can eat!

    Maybe we visited this restaurant on an off night, but our overall experience last night was sub par. I made a reservation the same day for 7:30p (the entire evening was open). The ambience was good, but they put us at a table right off the stairs in the middle of the restaurant (which shocked me given we had a reservation for a birthday and there were so many open reservations just a few hours prior to that). The servers were walking past us every two seconds and the flooring didn’t seem stable (I could feel the floor sink when servers walked by). It took at least 15 minutes for the server to take our drink orders (maybe they’re short staffed). I asked the host if we could move and she allowed it, but didn’t seem overly happy about the request. I would recommend they remove that table from the restaurant. I highly doubt anyone wants to sit there. We received no recommendations or additional information on dishes. The escargot was served without the shell (not typical for this French dish), and the calamari was all breading. Both dishes were cold. The entrees were good and hot. I ordered the Salmon, which was cooked well, and the blue cheese risotto with arugula had great flavor. My fiancé enjoyed a port wine for dessert. In summary, I would not recommend this restaurant. I think they need additional help like many restaurants right now, but I expect great service and high quality food when I spend this amount of money on dining out.

    Consistently good food - a nice balance of a stable menu that presents lots of delicious tried and true options and daily specials that are a treat. Service is always good, with waiters that seem to really like what they are doing! Wine list never fails to please! All around, you just know you're going to enjoy your time!

    Did not enjoy sitting in the back of the side patio. Table had brown paper on top and I realized why when I removed it and the table cloth was dirty. Surprisingly, the server was dressed sloppily and service was almost non existent. Never given water, I went to the bar to ask for some(since the server wasn’t anywhere to be found) and did the same for a refill. This was so different from what we’ve had in the past and certainly below the prices.

    Always a lovely experience at Anis. Servers are attentive and efficient. The food is always good and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is convivial and cosy. I wish I lived nearby (or that they were near where I live)- I would go regularly.

    So so sad. My husband and I have eaten here twice before and had good experiences. So we took a group of 5 here including out of town guests who are Francophiles. We made a reservation over a month ago. We were excited. We arrived 5 minutes early and the place was crazy. It was a Saturday night. Valet parking was completely overwhelmed. Told we had to wait 15 minutes. It turned out to be 30 minutes ( we had a reservation!). Then they seated us in a makeshift table near a space heater, squeezed us in in between two tables. It was terribly loud! Our waiter did his best. The drinks were fine. The mussels appetizer was good. They had a filet mignon offered. At 7 pm it was sold out and ribeye was substituted. A big problem for two of our party members due to high fat content. I had the redfish special but it was fishy and not up to par. Ultimately it was loud. Food was mediocre at best. I can say I was embarrassed to take my guests here and I’ll never be back. Very very disappointed. We will patronize petite Violettes in the future if we want a French bistro. Much more reliable and consistent quality. I’m shocked at how bad this experience was

    Everything was great except for the hostess. She was rude from the start. Seated us at able on patio which is fine but it was in corner where there was a gap and in the plastic and it was very cold and windy. The place was half empty. We asked for another table and was seated in the house at a lovely table. Just wanted you to know. Hopefully, it was an unusual day for her. Food delicious and service great.

    For a Friday nite, room and noise level wasn’t bad. While food tasted as delicious as ever, every single dish was cold. A 6:30 meal should have been piping hot, from soup to French fries and chicken.

    One of my favorite restaurants in the city. Great for a birthday, dinner with friends, date - whatever! The escargot, mussels, and salmon over bleu cheese risotto are not to be missed… and the desserts!! Don’t skip dessert. The service is always wonderful and ambiance is one of a kind.
