Anniversary dinner in Atlanta

My parents, who live in Midtown Atlanta, will be celebrating their 40th anniversary next weekend. My family and my brother and sister-in-law will be travelling from Mississippi to celebrate with them. There will be 8 of us in all, which includes 2 children. I'd love tried and true recommendations for a charming, memorable, and delicious meal. I've started reading the AJC 50 top reviews, but would like a more personal recommendation. Thanks in advance for any help.

      "charming, memorable, and delicious meal with two children" (ages??)....

      How about Babettes? It's not on the top 50 list but fits your description.

      Repast is one the list and another favorite of mine.

    2. Rathbun's but not sure if the kids will get it..if they're older than 10 or 11, go. If not, reconsider. Babette's is a good choice as is Wisteria, just down Highland Ave towards downtown. Wisteria just seems to get better and better. What about Eno? Small, charming and closeby. Watershed in Decatur is another good choice, but can be very loud. Have fun!

        Wife had a very disappointing experience at a dinner at Eno two weeks ago.
        We wanted to give it another try but it never seems to come through.
