Cozy-Romantic French Cottage Dining, By The Fireplace! Pure Heaven! – This past weekend, we decided to celebrate Valentine's Day early, with a cozy meal for two, at Atmosphere. On bustling Piedmont Rd., just north of the intersection of Monroe Dr., sits a former private residence, proudly snuggled into the busy landscape. This former cottage, has a fireplace in almost every room, lit by warm, glowing candlelight. Tables were not overly crowded. Thank goodness. Our waiter was very kind, and made several reccommendations. We both started with a warming French Onion Consomme with Melted Cheese Croutons. A different take on the classic French Onion Soup. Next for us both, was the delightful Roquefort Salad w/Anjou Pear, Roquefort Cheese, Walnuts, and a balsamic vinaigrette. It was a wonderful balance of flavors. Upon our waiters reccommendation, I had Sauteed Sea Scallops w/Wild Mushroom Ravioli and asparagus. Again, excellent. My dining companion had the Roasted Duck Leg Confit w/Green Beans, Mushrooms and Truffle Essence. There was nothing left. Deserts for the both of us was the Classic Creme Brule. Wine pairings were great, as the attention we received from the whole staff. Until next Valentine's Day, or sooner.
Love it! – I came here for the first time for a Sunday brunch. I was blown away. The place is so cute and the food was delicious. Service was excellent. I will definitely be going back and recommending it. There is a great patio, I'm shocked there was no one eating on it. If you want a nice relaxing brunch and you don't like crowds and long waits you've got to try this place. AND the valet will wash your car while you're eating for a very reasonable price.
Romantic Interlude – The authentic French food and romantic atmosphere make this a very special place. The glow of the woodburning fire during cold weather makes Atmosphere even more romantic, but it is still wonderful in the warm weather, especially with the outdoor seating. The food and service are consistently excellent, complemented by a well thought out wine list with reasonable pricing.
Best French bistro in the city – Atmosphere is an outsanding French bistro, the best in the city. The food is delicious and the service very warm and informal. When the weather is nice, the front patio is one of the best in Atlanta.
Dependably Delightful – Atmosphere is our weekly Sunday brunch destination. Each week the chef prepares a different Sunday soup special. Wild mushroom, carrot/ginger, lobster bisque--whatever--it is dependably rich, flavorful and deeply satisfying. Their mussels and broth, often a Sunday brunch special, rank among the best in Atlanta. Flavorful generous hangar steak has a rich garlic sauce complementing their excellent fries. My wife invariably orders the chicken crepes, well-stuffed with cream sauce, mushrooms, and tender chicken. We have only eaten dinner there on a few occasions (often holiday menus), and it is always special and delicious. Looking for fancy presentation or attitude? Wrong place! However, if you want fabulous French comfort food made by people who care about both the food and you, then give Atmosphere a try. Varied wine list; best deals are on French wines. Nice little bar in front room with a wood-burning fireplace.
Great for a special night – I really enjoyed my first dining experience at Atmoshere. The food was great and the service was attentive, but it is a little pricy so for my budget it can only be a special night type of place.
real homemade french fries – for years now I have been on a quest for true homemade fries...none of this frozen crinkly stuff...I travel all over, especially to France and even there now it seems the "congeler" is in vogue...however the fries at Atmosphere are divine! Ask your server for some "garlic butter" from the escargots sauce .... what can I say?!
Satisfyingly rich French fare in a picturesque, romantic setting. – The Scene
In this charming cottage, every room is stylish and features soft lighting, warm tones, pleasing textural contrasts and mellifluous music. The theme of relaxed, inviting elegance extends to the small bar and spacious patio, which somehow softens busy Piedmont Road. Warm greetings and attentive service await the smart set that congregates here.
Atmosphere offers a splendid array of wines and hits all the right notes on French classics and innovative creations. Escargots with white wine, garlic and herbs arrive tender and redolent. Rack of lamb with polenta cake, ratatouille and thin green beans boasts bold tastes and textures. The salmon tartare with lemon cream, tarragon and ginger crisps is subtle and delicate. La Bourride delights with its intricate melange of tender fish, tasty mussels and velvety, aromatic-rich aioli broth. Finish your feast with the rapturous assortment of chocolates and a perfect cafe au lait.
Great Great French Food.. – I've been to Atmosphere 3 times. The first time with my boyfriend. I went tonight (Sunday) by myself and decided to have dinner at the bar. I ordered the carrot soup and the grilled scallops with porcini truffle cream sauce and spinach ravioli.
Each time I go there it seems the food gets better. So rich and so delicious. The bread came out with the soup and it was a wonderful hot french roll. The accompanying butter (margarine?) was at room temperature (nothing worse than cold cold butter), but it tasted more like a high grade margarine than butter. But I can assure you the rest of the food contained all butter.
I will be back with my next boyfriend (the first trip bf is now an ex) I can assure you. I should send the first one an invoice....
French person at a French Restaurant – I'm French and i tested Atmosphere Restaurant and My personal answer is SO GOOOOOODDDD, really perfect, service, food, wine, I Recommended this restaurant.
