Though we arrived early we felt pressured to order food pretty much right away. We ordered a bottle of wine and continued to look at tapas menu. First two plates came quickly, then they completely forgot about us for at least 30 minutes! Finally caught our waiter's eye, and soon after our 4th plate arrived. But where was the 3rd plate????? He accused us of eating it!! Not once, not twice but many times. He asked why we didn't tell anyone we had waited so long between plates but we had flagged down another waiter & told him! This bar is ridiculously overcrowded, we've been to Paris 8 times, adore eating at wine bars but never have experienced the crush of so many people packed in to one small room, even the waiters had difficulty maneuvering among the tables. By this time we had finished our bottle of wine and ordered a glass of a 'comparable' wine to accompany the reluctantly delivered 3rd missing tapas. Which BEGS the question 'why are there NO wines by the glass, with prices on Frenchie's wine menu?' The glass of wine they brought was overpriced, the most we were charged in any wine bar in a week of dining in Paris! We are small business owners and never ever would we treat our clients as we had been treated at Frenchie's. Registering our complaint with the manager you could see he humored us, at best, by removing the cost of one glass of wine. No apologies for the wait between plates, nor the mysterious missing plate we were accused of eating.
