Recommended by a French couple - very hip Parisians. Couldn't get into restaurant across the street so opted for a drink at the bar instead. Very pleasant. Very trendy. No tourists. Just French locals. Fabulous list of wine available. Very good prices. As we were enjoying our wine we were offered a table in the restaurant, but by this stage... More

Frenchie was an unforgettable meal, and our favourite in Paris by far. We had discovered this restaurant on Bourdain's No Reservations and decided it was one which we had to try during our trip. The chef Greg Marchand was very personable, walking about chatting with his customers and getting feedback on their experience. Marchand's flavours were an inventive twist on... More

Went to the vino bar across as could not get reservation at restaurant. It was busy with energy. Had nice glass of champagne to start with some cheese. Yummy. When got our table ended up splitting number of dishes. Everything was amazing. Also nicely paired with wine. Even bought a cookbook and my pic with head chef, Greg. Very personable,... More

We ate at the above which we believe is a smaller version of Frenchie. The only downside is due to the weather it was extremely hot and uncomfortable. In between dabbing sweat off my forehead, the mouthfuls of food were delicious. The service was good if a little hectic as it was very busy and popular. Would certainly return as... More

Two ways to get in--make a reservation 30 days in advance or stand in line (location across the alley). We did the reservation and I was pleased with the E45 fix price menu. By Paris standards this belongs in the upper tier of Paris restaurants in the $$$ group. It gets over hyped--but go with a neutral mind and let... More

I have to say that Frenchie's wine bar has been discovered by everyone and and I mean EVERYONE. The spot is stunning, the wine list is great, but you will be jammed in cheek by jowl with camera toting visitors if you come in on a Friday during tourist season. I suggest a visit on a dreary rainy night in... More

Our friends made a reservation for this restaurant weeks in advance. We arrived for the first seating and they had an issue with the reservation. At first blush, it seemed that there was an error in the way our friend's name was entered into the system because there was a very similar name on the list. We were seated and... More

Frenchie was our first stop once we got to Paris from London, and our trip couldn't have started off with a better meal. The meals here are set and change daily, so in the words of Forrest Gump, "you never know what you're gonna get".  We selected a bottle of red to kick off the night and ordered the quail... More

I made a reservation here about a month ahead of time. I called a day before and left a message on their machine confirming this reservation. When we arrived to the restaurant the hostess did not see our name on the list and thought perhaps the person who took the reservation took our name down incorrectly (there was a name... More

We ate here three years ago for our honeymoon and had to come back for our 3rd anniversary. We were so glad we did, since it was the best dinner we had on our trip. Their vegetables were fresh and unusual. Some of them we didn't even know their name. The meat and fish were artistically prepared. Everything was so... More
