It can be hard for any restaurant to live up to expectations when you make a booking months out from another country. But this was a very special experience. There is an interesting ethos/attitude to the place, the staff and the food and it works...More

We loved Frenchie! This was our best meal in Paris. The wine pairings were amazing. The pacing of the courses were timed perfectly. The atmosphere was comfortable, relaxed and romantic all at the same time. We had reservations the following night at another restaurant and...More

Delicious food and wine. We ordered the carpaccio, duck, and burrata, all of which were incredible. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. It has a lot of style, and the setting is perfect (both the neighborhood setting and interior of the restaurant). Also, it is friendly...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood 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, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in

Response from Karen H | Reviewed this property |
It's a very small, rather crowded restaurant so it would be hard to fit in a baby seat. And it really isn't a family outing type of place.
Does the restaurant have any private dining rooms? If so how many and what are the capacities?

Don't think there are private dining rooms - it's a pretty small restaurant. Depending on the number of guests you might have a better chance of trying to take the whole restaurant

We are trying to make a reservation since a week ago but nobody asks the phone and replies to our emails. Does anybody know the best way to communicate with the restaurant?
