“Dining pleasure”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Beautiful plating of perfectly prepared food. Nice variety of dishes with a French flair. Riemme, owner and chief does a wonder job. He has a flair for balancing flavors and blending unique items to excite your pallet.
Lovey ambience, with a special treat of music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
Service, perfectly paced to your requirement and needs.
Thank you for many delightful evening on dining.

“One of the most enjoyable places to dine around - Dine here before May”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

Have come here for a few years - a wonderful place for special occassions, and, as it can take considerable time to access the CDC campus, an ideal place for working lunches with those without a "govvie" badge. The setting is semi-formal, but casual enough at lunch. Unformly excellent food, reasonably-priced (would say 2.5 $ signs if it was an option). Staff is excellent. Our most pleasant server was Heather, but we've never had a rude, or even mediocre server. Remy Kerba, the proprietor, has been running a tight ship for a long time. It is a shame that he will be closing shop here in May when the building is torn down to create more condos - (Hmm, doesn't Atlanta have an excess of housing?), so come here and enjoy it while you can. The entrees, appetizers, and desserts are excellent. Most recently had a perfect soup of tomato bisque and salmon. Typically get their trout (see the web site) which has always been first rate. Have not been nearly as impressed with the wines (others in the family drink wine, though I do not, so am depending on their perspective), but champagne rated fine. Personal preference is to come here during the week. They do have a special dinner for Valentine's Day which attended last year, but like to come here when it is less crowded. Do check out their website. Bernie K. sings here a couple of nights a week, and does some fabulous French songs, covering Edith Piaf and others. It is another reason we enjoy coming here. Free parking.
Please advise if you find this review helpful. Thank you.

“Quiet, Traditional and Comfortable”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

When you combine very good traditional french cuisine with moderate prices, comfortable seating and a quiet ambiance, you have a perfect neighborhood bistro. For those at the CDC and Emory, it is no secret where to go for a business lunch or dinner. For those of us who live in the neighborhood of Druid Hills, it has long been a favorite. As Emory Point development restaurants come on line, I will always list Le Giverny as my favorite. Some favorite dishes are the brie in honey with flatbread, apple beet salad, Steak Frites, and fresh trout with capers.

“Very Nice Restaurant”
Reviewed 14 November 2012

This French bistro is located at the Emory Inn and Conference Center in Atlanta. The lunch menu has an excellent selection of dishes that blend French and modern western traditions. The decor is traditional rather than modern. Some may like that, but I find it dated and not a reflection of the current trends in French dining. Overall, though, a nice place to have a quiet and solid lunch.
