When it came to deciding a restaurant for a rare 'date night' with my husband, we toyed with the idea of going to some new place but instead opted for our old favorite and it did not disappoint. The setting: It's a lovely and warm room, painted a muted yellow/gold with large oil paintings and some hanging copper pots. The... More

This is a great date spot. Very quaint and romantic. Ive only ever ordered their fish and seafood dishes,but they were all fantastic. Also, the potato chip with gorgonzola was super tasty!

Everything - from the ambiance, service, and most of all the exquiste food - was just exceptional. We went there for Valentine's Day and found it to be the perfect restaurant for a wonderful meal in a quiet setting. We will be back!

We enjoyed a very nice meal here with some imaginative twists. I particularly liked the "potato chips" appetizer with the blue cheese. Crispy waffle chips with a delicious sauce. My scallops were very nicely done and a fair sized portion. I thought for the prices, it was excellent food. The cake was delicious, enormous and really almost too big a... More

My wife and I enjoyed a good and leisurly meal last saturday night. We were seated quickly, requested to share the cucumber martini and drank it at our pace as our captain did not rush us. A nice lady who is an "habitue" was dining with her 17 years old daugher and she recommended the olive and artichoke ravioli and... More

Should have suspected they had overbooked when they telephoned hours before my reservation to confirm. Less than two hours from being seated, we were asked if we would move to the minuscule bar with a drink on the house so they could have the table. We had a bottle of wine, two soups, one appetizer, two entrees, one dessert and... More

I am so sorry that I upset you. I saw that you and your guest had your purses on the table and valet tickets out for 15 to 20 minutes. You were having a nice conversation. I thought you might really enjoy an after dinner drink at the bar on me, and yes, it would have helped us too. We... More

Babette's is one of our favorite restaurants for dinner but we had never gone there for brunch until recently, and we were not surprised that it was just as wonderful as dinner always is. We love the knowledgeable and friendly wait staff, and the decor for brunch is equally cheery. Starting with a basket of fresh scones and muffins (... More

We've been to Babette's many times and it has a special meaning for us as I proposed to my wife at this restaurant. We went there for for New Year's eve and it was quite busy. We had reservations and they seated us as soon as we arrived. As we were being seated, they showed us to a rather small... More

Dinner with an old friend at our favorite place. Lamb chops were wonderful. Cassoulet was best ever - which is saying a lot since chef/owner Marla Adams knows how to make great cassoulet. Staff is still the best in town. Perfect place on a winter evening. Atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. Price is best deal in town.

Babette's is one of my "go to" places when entertaining in Atlanta. The food is always excellent and presented nice. This is a small restaurant with a warm, cozy atmosphere. The staff is always helpful and very pleasant. Highly recommended....
