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.

Having dined here before it was renamed "Petite Violette", I'm not quite sure if it's new and improved .. BUT .. one thing for sure. It is Very Good. Perhaps a bit of a price escalation. Service was Excellent and food preparation to match. Recommended.

I have been a long-time regular of Petite Auberge and an occasional patron of Violette. Petite Violette is a consolidation of those two restaurants in the former location of Violette. 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. 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.

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.
