So lucky to eat here! Always booked out

I came here after reading foodie reviews. Not at all disappointed. I was so lucky to get a table even though it was booked out. Someone cancelled at the last minute so I could score a table.

I came here after reading foodie reviews. Not at all disappointed. I was so lucky to get a table even though it was booked out. Someone cancelled at the last minute so I could score a table.

Only 20 very lucky diners will find seats starting at 6:30. The staff of about 9 are so friendly and helpful. The Chef delivers tasty, original and creative dishes EVERY night. You have a choice of 3 starters, main plates and desserts to choose from...or you may let the chef choose 5 dishes for you. We had one chef's choice... More

We ate in the wine bar where there are lots of tapas options, the very friendly English speaking waiter was very helpful and gave us some great recommendations which we loved. You have to eat on communal tables in the wine bar which personally I think is great as we got chatting to our neighbours and compared food. The service... More

We jumped through crazy hoops to get a table for 2 at Frenchie. I started planning our trip 3 months in advance - multiple phone calls, tried booking online, and eventually asked my hotel concierge to give it a go (Christopher at Hotel Galileo - highly recommend!). He landed us a table, but was joking that even for concierges, it's... More

Enjoyed everything about this excellent little bistro -- imaginative, fair-priced, ample and delicious dishes; attentiveness of all staff, including friendly, very accessible head chef/owner; and convenient location. Will definitely return!

Was fortunate to secure a 9.30 pm table a few weeks in advance. Was our first dinner in Paris, and it could not have been better. We actually arrived 10 minutes early and were seated right away! What the heck, this never happens lol. The hostess was nice, and we had 2 waiters/servers who were attentive through the night, helped... More

It took about a dozen calls to actually get through to try and book, but unfortunately they had no availability (we were in town Friday and Saturday, but apparently they are closed at weekends). So we stood in line for their wine bar opposite on a Friday night (arriving just after 6h30pm for a 7pm opening - we were second... More

Curiosity piqued by their extensive wine list, I visited Frenchie Bar a Vins for a quick glass of wine and stayed for dinner. The bartender was engaging, knowledgeable, and thoughtful in his responses to my exhaustive questions about the wine program at both the wine bar and the restaurant across the street. Despite being consistently busy throughout their service, he... More

I have been to both Frenchie for the chefs menu, and had drinks and a snack at the bar next door. It's good, but I feel this restaurant is a bit overhyped. People seem to line up on the bar side about an hour before they open, and reservations at the restaurant are apparently hard to come by. The food... More

Yes, this is really excellent new French cooking, just as seriously cooked as in the restaurant opposite the wine bar by the same owners. You drink fine wines and order several small dishes: Caille dish was wonderful, ravioli with cepes (mushrooms), terrine, and a wonderful Tarte Tatin as desert. Casual atmosphere, sitting at high tables, looking into the kitchen (behind... More

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
