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.

Wife and I had dinner with friends from NYC and Anis did not disappoint. They loved everything and was a great experience. This was also our first time and we equally enjoyed. Looking forward to going back.

Anis is one of the few one of a kind dining establishments in Buckhead so it makes going there unique! Tasty and reliable menu including a decent and diverse selection of wines. Love that it has a "menu du jour" which I think all restaurants should have! The atmosphere is fun and the service is always excellent! The owner should be commended for creating a very special restaurant!

Great food. Started with French Pinot Grigio. Had halibut with eggplant, squash, and calamata olives. Dessert was walnut breading pudding with honey topped with ice cream. Friendly staff; excellent service.

One of my favorite places in Atlanta. When the weather is in that in between winter and summer stage, the Anis Patio is an excellent option. Staff is always friendly, great wine selection, and their menu is scrumptious.

I have been going to Anis since it opened and love the restaurant. I discovered a magnetic stick-on "Anis" sign affixed to the back of my vehicle the next day. While harmless, I think it's a bit of a tacky marketing ploy on the part of the restaurant mgmt to increase business.

We celebrated my Birthday and it was perfect form the Martinis to dessert. The music was on the patio was the perfect background to the best duck I've had since we were in France. The evening ended only when we consumed every bite of the beautiful and delicious dessert sampler. Chocolate lovers take note. Do not miss this.

Service was perfunctory at best. Waitress seemed put off by the fact that we didn’t want to order until we received our appetizer. The soda water in a Campari and soda was flat. My wife’s salmon was fine but my Ribeye was over cooked — asked for medium rare not even pink anywhere. For a ribeye it much flavor. Would not go there again.

We had absolutely terrible table service from a server named Ty. She was rude and inattentive. It took 15 minutes to get hot water for tea, and another 15 minutes for her to remember to bring the cream for coffee I ordered after lunch, by which point my coffee was already cold.

We started with a lovely dry Rose and the mussels in white wine sauce with fries, the mussels were cooked perfectly and the white wine sauce was so delicious that we wanted to sop it all up with the crusty bread. The fries were amazing as well. My sister had the trout, cooked so well that you could eat the skin and I had the special of a heavenly mushroom risotto topped with mahi mahi. Finally we finished off our feast by sharing the orange strawberry sorbet which came with lovely fresh fruit on top.

Our 47th anniversary evening was one of the loveliest we've ever had. As always, our appetizer, entrees, wine, coffee and desserts were well paired and delicious, and our server was efficient, knowledgeable, and one of those superior, attentive waiters who never intrude...a total pleasure in service. The evening music was primarily in French, romantic easy listening and excellent execution.
