We had dinner at Babette’s before the theatre. The food was excellent as it always is. The lamb was perfect as was the veal. The service was perfect - great attention to detail. Babette’s is clearly one of the very best restaurants in Atlanta.

Babette's is serious about food. Top quality ingredients are expertly prepared. Good wine list at reasonable prices. Service is attentive and friendly without being overbearing or intrusive. You can actually have a conversation without shouting. Not "trendy," perhaps, but that's a good thing.
