Violette's is now combined with Petite Auberge and is now Petite Violette!!! What a combination for the charm and ambience of both places combined with a wonderful menu! The trout is magnificent, the salmon is delightful and the American Burger and House salad was a hit with our child! The restaurant offers peace and tranquility from 1:30 to 3:30 for... More

Need more staff ... Deliver hot bread to the table but can't deliver butter till the meal orders are turned in? The coffee is a weak excuse for coffee. We had the sea bass... tough ? Over cooked ? Not sure ... Have a hard time getting the bills out in a timely manner. Just disappears !

Nice to see a traditional French menu, well prepared food, good wine list and friendly service. The live music wasn't great but better than piped background music any day.

Honestly, I didn't like the atmosphere at Violette. But the current configuration is much better, owing a great deal to the addition of more intimate booth seating. The menu is... More

I took a group of women in my Lunch Bunch Group to this restaurant at lunch time. Everyone ordered something different and each raved about their dish. Some had salads and some had sandwiches and some had a hot meal. They were so delighted that they told their husbands they wanted to return and try out the dinner menu. The... More

Petite Violette's staff is preparing delicious French/Alsatian/German food as they did at Petite Auberge. Everything is great and is one of the favorites of native Atlantans.
