Great and reasonable lunch spot – I was at Violette again this week for a monthly business meeting we have here. I love the Beef Burgundy, my colleagues rave about the crepes and the chocolate mousse. It's great food for the price. Service is always attentive and friendly.
Great Little French Restaurant – This little French "hideaway" is a great find! The food is always wonderful and it's easy to get to off of 85. Love the piano music, too. Never had a bad experience there and always take business clients there when I can. I highly recommend The Violette!
Worst food I've had in a long time – Ordered veggie crepe - bland and strange vegetable mixture. Flavored with tarragon which was overpowering. Couldn't eat it. Service was lazy. I was with a group for lunch and no one was impressed. Too other many good places in Atlanta to eat so won't be back.
New local favorite! – Surprising menu with a nice wine list. It just comes easy to them here. You get the feeling that this is what they were put on this earth to do. Don't get me wrong, this place wasn't perfect, but on a scale of 1-10 I would give them a 9 over some of the more reviewed French restaurants nearby.
Wow, true excellents.. U will regret not going – I expected another French Res. want a be. What I got was not only the real thing, but the best French food I have ever had in the states. My wife was so happy that I took her there. Beaware, It is a little different. There were poeple that were formal, so there for Prom and some people that were in jeans. They have a mixture of social levels, which is fantastic, when you consider the prcie for one person is around 20 dollars. Thats right, it didn't cost one hundred dollars per person, its around 20 Dollars.
You can't go wrong with the real deal.
Great date place – This is an outstanding place for a date or special occasion. Nice wine list (they'll suggest some good ones if you are unsure). Tasty and pretty reasonably-priced for the food quailty. The atmosphere is nice, and they often have live piano music. "Casual-sheik" kind of feel and a great staff, too. A can't miss!
wonderful lunch al fresco – Hadn't been here since last year when they were serving Sunday brunch; this time had a great weekday lunch with a friend. Both the crepe and the Salade Nicoise we ordered were excellent. We sat on their patio, which is a shaded oasis. Parking can be a limited, but apparently they've started offering valet service on busy days.
Romantic Spot and Food is excellent – We had a 7:00 reservation. Easy to park even though it was busy. Greeted and seated right away. You could tell there were a lot of regulars because the staff knew other table by name which is a good sign. Server was not overbearing but efficient. We just found this place and thought we would try something different. Food was excellent and great wine selection. Would like to try this place for lunch or even brunch.
AVOID this place for BRUNCH! – We have been to Violettes for dinner and loved it however they sure have missed the boat when it comes to Sunday brunch. I can see why at 12:30pm this past Sunday there were only 3 tables with patrons. The french toast was the worst we have ever tasted. IHOPs would beat them hands down. We ordered Brioche Basket with butter & fruit preserves. The fruit preserves consisted of those little packages of Apple and Grape Jelly. OEUF BENEDICTE = disaster. Hard well done eggs and this was on 3 seperate orders at our table. Coffee = cold and weak. We have had better on some airlines. Service = POOR. We had to keep asking for items that should have been on the table ie salt, pepper. The cream for our coffee = those little sealed cups. I mean this is a french restaurant ... you mean to tell me they do not have fresh cream? AVOID this place at all cost for brunch. You would enjoy the Waffle House next door and most likely receive better serivce.
It's good if you like that type of food. – I don't know much about French food but this place seems like it offers pretty authentic french cuisine. We had someone play the piano and the service was great. It may just be my taste buds but I thought their food was okay - not that impressed.
