This place rocks. It's a tiny hole in the wall, on a side street in downtown Gables. However, it's food rocks! The onion soup is the best in Miami! Hands down!!! Their duck confit sandwich is AWESOME! Overall great dining experience.

This is our new favorite restaurant! We have had both lunch and dinner here on several occasions and the food has been consistently delicious. The staff are very friendly and the service is top notch. On one evening we had perfectly cooked halibut and another time, we had extremely flavorful mushroom risotto. My son and his friend enjoyed the steak... More

We ordered some fried calamari, fish nuggets, scallops and couple of beers. Food was delicious, but the view is terrific. The sunset was really a great thing to watch from here. Our bartender Jonny was friendly. The staff is great. I would definitely come back.

All restaurants should,be like Frenchie's, small, charming ambiance, excellent food, attentive service and great wine list. We have been there multiple times and have never been disappointed. If we could only clone the Castrecs and have one closer to,our home we would be there very day. Bon appeti!

Excellent French food, great service and nice ambiance at outside tables in quiet area. We had the duck confit, which was excellent but would have been even better if made with potatoes sarladaise as in France, the steak bernaise had good meat and sauce, the pear tartin was terrific, as was the coconut cake, and the price was fair for...

This is one of those local gems, a neighborhood restaurant that is so easy to overlook but if you make the effort to find it you will have a terrific meal served in comfortable surroundings by people who really care. We came for lunch and knowing we would be busy for the evening decided to make it our main meal... More

Dinner here on Friday night and everything was good. I had the steak and frites. Meal was good, but the steak ended up being over done. I ordered medium and it came out well done. Mussels were very good as well as the appetizer. I would give them another try. Besides the steak I had no other problems

A really good honest food restaurant. 5 entries on tonight's menu. I love a small menu. That means they are good at what they do. The French Onion Soup -- to die for. Escargot tender and tasty. I had the moules and frites. Excellent. With all the French speakers around me, I thought I was in Paris.... well almost!!! I... More

I had lunch here the other day, having never heard of this place. I was very pleasantly surprised. The menu is on a blackboard they place on your table and is a mixture of French bistro fare (steak tartare, quiche) with traditional American items such as a burguer or a BLT. We split the firsse avec lardon which brought a... More
