Terrific restaurant

Another difficult restaurant to book as highly sought after. Really enjoyed this place. It's small and perfect. Although I can't remember being blown away by anything I ate, I enjoyed everything from start to finish

One of the best restaurant in Paris. We were party of 4 for Friday and had a real great evening. The food was excellent & so was the atmosphere. Since I'm eating lactose free the chef himself (great chef, and very creative) came by and promised me that he will find the way that I will enjoy 2 desserts like... More

Ordered a bottle of wine in company of 3 friends and 15 minutes later (half the bottle finished) we were rudely and in a very pushy manner asked to clear the table and finish our bottle asap because there were other people waiting for a vacant table! The waitress was utterly arrogant, very rude and interrupted me to speak and... More

A beautiful, small bistro serving amazing food, delicious wine (have the pairings!) all with a smile. Try booking via 'the fork' 30 days out, and ensure you click the confirmation that arrives about 12 hour ahead of your booking.

Exceptional restaurant in an authentic decor and atmosphere. The wines are carefully selected by a passionate somelier who will make sure they perfectly match the food. The young staff is cool and engaging. Perfect quality/price ratio, highly recommended!

Disappointing. An overall abysmal lack of inventiveness, execution and service acumen. So many tourists which makes me wonder if the restaurant no longer feels inspired enough to offer their best to this group of transient wallets. Each course was pedestrian, at best. A main course of poularde?? Are we at a wedding banquet? My review would have been kinder if... More

Four of us had dinner at Frenchie last night and we came away delighted. As many have already said, the place is very small with only about eight tables. We were given a list of possible ingredients and asked if any presented an allergy concern or otherwise should be omitted. After that, we were in the chef's hands. And very... More

Went here with friends to celebrate a birthday. We were sceptical if we want to do it here, but it was definitely worth it! Great service, outstanding food, very nice atmosphere and nice view to the kitchen. Loved it!

A small restaurant with a few tables and and an amazing flavourful menu. just perfect. and adding to this, a wine selection that enables you to discover unknown excellent small french wine producers. I just loved the setting, food, service and wine... not bad at all +

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.
