"This is our new go-to place for a great dinner. Everything was perfect for us - casual yet classy ambiance, low but convivial noise level, loved the food. Straight up traditional French country cooking, no fussy or weird dishes. Just very well executed without too much fanfare.
Server was excellent, attentive and engaging without becoming obtrusive. Very professional.
The live music (Saturdays, apparently) was just right - classical Spanish guitarist. There was the usual "mood music" composed of covers of popular tunes - but when he went into the traditional Spanish guitar pieces, I was in heaven.
It does seem to be attracting an older crowd - we're pushing 60 and we were definitely on the younger end of the crowd. Lots of people that seem to have been going there for years and years. Quite a tribute.
The chef and the manager are definitely on top of everything - the place is a well oiled machine. The chef doesn't parade around the dining room looking for accolades - apparently he is quite shy. But his attention to detail is clear. And the manager watched everything at all times.
All in all, I know that when we go there it will be a consistently excellent experience."

"The atmosphere is wonderful. I object to how pricey it gets. I had a salad, a cup of coffee and somehow ended up with a $60 bottle of wine and a $93 bill.
I didn't ask, the waiter didn't tell me the price. I should have asked obviously.
Every time I go, I love the ambiance and service but am always stunned by the bill.

"It's not close to Roswell, so we haven't been there for several years, although we had always enjoyed it. We recently decided to revisit it before an event downtown, and we felt that we had reunited with an old friend. The menu offerings are extensive, and we enjoyed the trout, duck, and a pork chop and were very pleased with our choices. Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive - and didn't call us "You guys" a single time, which is a rare exception nowadays, and highly appreciated among people of "a certain age". I enjoyed the music during dinner, and didn't realize until we were leaving that it was live. We agreed with the couple who joined us that it was a very pleasant evening, and we will be back at the first opportunity."

"I've been coming to V for many years, although not in the last 6 months. Food and service still great. Not a fan of the "new" table layout. Seems like a cafeteria dining room. Has no charm or romance. The band needs to either go or be replaced by a jazz piano. Very intrusive volume. Repeat: very intrusive volume."

"The location while easy to miss its non-descript exterior while traveling down Clairmont Road near I-85, is worthy of stopping in for a great meal and an extremely nice atmosphere. The restaurant has been in business for 20 years, and serves authentic traditional french cuisine combined with some eclectic dishes. Friendly service and good value."

"We have found another "fave" in Violette! Although we arrived slightly before it opened for dinner, the staff let us into the bar area where we enjoyed some wine while we looked at a slideshow of some of France's country towns. Once seated, we found service to be very friendly and knowledgeable. The onion soup was one of the best we've ever had and the sea bass (special) was very flaky and had the most amazing sauce! My husband had the Coq au Vin--VERY good as well. Salads were fresh-tasting and refreshing. We had pistachio profiteroles and creme brûlée for dessert. Both were a great end to a delicious meal. We'll be back...."

"We are from Orlando FL. When we knew that we were going to be in Atlanta, we made reservations for Violette as we had been there before and really liked it. Our table was not ready at our reserved time - we waited about 15-20 minutes. Service was very very slow. My food was good, however, my wife's food arrived luke warm. After having waited a good 45 minutes since the salads, she chose not to send it back to be reheated. This appears to be a restaurant with known customers. We, obviously, weren't in that favored group. We saw nobody else come in had to wait for their table either. We won't rush back but then we might be in Atlanta every couple of years. Hopefully, the service will improve."
