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.

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.

Randomly found this place as we were looking for a dinner spot on a Saturday evening. OpenTable took us to Anis - and oh my! I am so thankful we tried this restaurant. Just perfect and delicious.

Anis is always consistently great! We had a wonderful "date nite", sat at a table in the bar (which is our favorite), and had beautiful food and drink. Love this restaurant!

Been here 5-6 times; took a party of 8 out last Saturday; great service and food; waiter was outstanding as most are; a bit stuffy on the parking but it always works out.

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.

The restaurant is xlnt. Love the setting, not too showy. Out of town guest loved it. Was a little disappointed in the table location and setting. The wait staff almost stumbled onto our table a couple of times. We felt like we were in the way. Our table was the only table with brown paper on it. That said, the food was spectacular...as usual. LOVE THIS RESTAURANT! Highly recommended...

I’ve been a fan over the years but this lunch was not good. I had the pan-sautéed chicken and pasta. Pasta was bland and over cooked and chicken was odd tasting. But this was a one-off experience.

We have both been to Anis many times and the food was very disappointing this time. The ribeye was barely warm, and the vegetables were horrible - a mixture of leeks and capers that was very watery and made the whole plate wet. My girlfriend ordered the duck - the portion was large but the duck was dry - no sauce of any kind. Pretty plain. Not up to their usual standards.
