After being trapped in downtown Atlanta for a week of business, a nice change of scenery was the goal. Rode the Marta to Lenox Square and the bartender at Nieman Marcus did not disappoint. He suggested Anis Bistro as a a place with great food and a local vibe. The added extras were the music by Mes Amis and the wonderful weather for outdoor seating. (take a cab from the mall to the resturant) We ordered appertizers, tartare de tomate and a cheese plate with a cocktail at the bar. We were early and beat the dinner crowd with no reservations. For our meal, I enjoyed the Loup de Mer and my colleague ordered the Steak Frites from the lunch menu and they were quick to accommodate. Both were perfectly perpared in the french tradition of light sauces and great sides. The evening was well worth the cab ride. Bon Appetit.

I've lived in France and believe my taste for "authentic" French food is pretty good. Anis serves up some very good French fare. The 4 of us in our party were all very happy with our meals. Everything from our appetizers to main meals to desserts were good and very close to authentic.

The service is a little slow (this is true in many French restaurants, too, so maybe this is part of the "authentic" feel ;) ). On busy nights, the restaurant can become loud and feel crowded; we often had trouble talking amongst ourselves at our small table of 4.

Prices are high, but it's a good quality French bistro in the heart of Buckhead/Atlanta GA. So, that is to be expected.

If you have a desire for well-prepared French food, Anis is a good choice. A little too pricey for my liking, and a little too loud/crowded. But, otherwise a good choice for close-to-authentic French food.

Wonderful lunch.... The shrimp were clean and cooked to perfection. Yes, a fab bottle of wine ( don't judge... We are on vacation). Highly recommend. It is shabby chic ... In a French way.

We have been to Anis countless times and are always pleased we returned. A French business friend even commented on how much he enjoyed it, but on Saturday we went there with my adult son for a casual family dinner. The classic French cars (2CVs) are your first clue but this is a welcoming French restaurant based in an old house in a quiet partly residential street in Buckhead. The atmosphere is alway pleasant with much of the restaurant in a protected outdoor area. We chose a good red Burgundy for dinner. The lamb tenderloin special and the lamb chops were excellent and my wife's Grouper was light and flavorful. The escargots, and Octopus were great starters and although we did not have them this time, the mussels are phenomenal.

Very nice little place. Good food and perfect ambiance. We were with a large group so the menu was a little limited but still everything was fantastic. The staff was right on it in every aspect from seating everyone to clearing the tables. We will tell our friends!
