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. The new location is spacious and brighter. Food: 4.5/5 Decor: Spotless restrooms, beautiful dining rooms, cloth napkins & tablecloths and flowers. 4.5/5. Service: Friendly, helpful, prompt and personable, 5/5. Value: $$-$$$ 5/5 and worth... More

After a long absence, I visited this favorite restaurant with friends. The food was delicious. The service was wonderful. I look forward to coming back again with more friends at the end of this month.

We had a great prix fixed menu with a group of 40. Hot food served hot, cold food served cold. Delicious sea bass in particular. We will be back for the regular menu, can't wait!

We visited Violette for dinner recently after a long absence. The space is still very pleasant and it is possible to converse while dining, a rare commodity these days. A guitarist played standards in the background. Our server was OK but there were some breakdowns -- we had to ask twice for the wine we had ordered. It did not... More

We had beef Borgonone with noodles. It was very tasty, fell apart it was so tender. Had French onion soup & caprese salad. All very good. Know these owners from petite auberge. They should do very well here.

My local friends took us to this restaurant which serves a mix of French and American food. It was pretty pricey for me at $35 for dinner with water.

This tiny gem of a restaurant blew me away the minute I walked in --Intimate atmosphere, beautifully decorated and appointed, perfect lighting, French songs filling the air. I knew it was going to be a memorable dining experience before I even tasted the food. And the food did not disappoint. Salad Caprese to start and it was delicious but the... More

I had such high hopes for Violette. It started out fantastic. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere. There was live music which set a nice mood. Our waiter Johan was very friendly & helpful. The bread they brought to the table hot was absolutely delicious. We ordered the lobster crepe, it was amazing. Then it all went downhill fast.... More

I wouldn't change a thing about last night's dinner. Perfect service, food, and atmosphere. I had the veal with mushrooms and spinach pasta and it was excellent. Sit on the patio if the weather is nice. Parking is in a private lot. There's a cute small bar and live music some evenings. This restaurant is joining forces with Petite Auberge... More

Description
Violette Restaurant offers classic French cuisine at affordable prices, a full bar, and an extensive wine list. With an atmosphere exuding warmth and charm, live music 5 nights a week, and friendly service, Violette is the place for an intimate dinner or a festive celebration. The restaurant has a tree-covered patio for "al fresco" dining and two large party rooms for private functions. We are Brookhaven's best-kept-secret.
