    My husband and I had our ever first experience at Frenchies on Valentines. It was an incredibly memorable time - the food, service, atmosphere... the whole package. The team, especially our server Frank, was attentive to our needs. Food was amazing and cooked perfectly to our recommendations. The restaurant scene was vibrant, fancy, but at the same time casual. Although seating between tables were a bit "cozy," diners respected each others' space and no issues arose during the time we dined there. My husband and I are already planning our next "date night with the kids" at this venue.

    It’s way too LOUD. Literally had to go outside to have a conversation and the waitstaff kept getting our orders wrong because they couldn’t hear us either. People literally shouting at tables next to each other trying to be heard. This was Sunday at 1:15pm (they made us wait for 15 min even though our reservation was for 1pm). Don’t go unless you want hearing damage.

    I saw good reviews and decided to hold a special brunch there for my wife and daughter. Observations: 1. Ordered the basket of assorted croissants. They were very very stale. I wouldn’t have imagined that a place by the name of Frenchie would have such terrible croissants.  2. When ordering a latte, I asked upfront to please ensure it was hot. It came out lukewarm. I told my Server and she took the cup and came back 30 seconds later with it just steam wanded and more dilute. They didn’t make a fresh cup. When I asked her, she took it back again and they added more milk which just made it more dilute - again instead of just making a fresh cup. I found that distasteful. 3. My daughter ordered their Frenchie toast. Again, very disappointing. It looked beautiful, but there was hardly any egg batter at all in the toast ie it was mostly toasted thin bread with some powdered sugar on it. 4. Other orders included avocado toast and salads, which were just OK, but at least not as bad as the above. I honestly expected much more from Fenchje.

    Brunch was phenomenal—dishes were rich and complex, and their serving sizes were generous. Coffee was great. Come hungry! Only comment is that you seat very close to the next tables, and you can probably hear the next table. No issue with us but good to know!

    Great spot for Saturday brunch. Charcuterie board and spicy margarita was perfect start, Eggs Benedict where cooked perfectly and the warm baquette with jam and butter was wonderful. Restaurant was very busy but that did not impact service at all. Definitely will put Frenchie’s on my to list of fun, good food restaurants.

    This restaurant is our latest punchline for how to not design a space. It was about half full and I could barely hear my partner from across a three foot table. The food was average and wildly overpriced. I ordered the steak frites and they were good but more well done than I expected. The truth is, even if the food was amazing and fairly priced, I wouldn't return because the space is prohibitively loud.

    They have a cancellation policy that they do not inform you of until after you book. Also was frustrating because we were there on time for our reservation but we ended up being seated 15 minutes late, despite the fact that the restaurant says if you are 10 minutes late for your reservation then they give away your table. Food and service were good, but nothing special.

    I made my reservations several weeks in advance for a 40th birthday celebration, which was noted on the reservation. When we got there, there were many open tables, and instead of being put into the main room, we were put into the very back of the restaurant in a crammed table, with two other guests on either side of us we barely had room to sit down. there’s no spot for coats or bags. in addition to being extremely crammed, because we were sitting in basically a covered terrace, there was a heating unit blowing hot air into the room, constantly blowing in your face while you’re talking and eating it wasn’t ideal at all. my eyes were watering the whole time I was eating and trying to talk in my hair was blowing in my face. I asked to move my seat as we were celebrating and I was told we could move only if we ate within an hour and 15 minutes because they had a party coming in. two hours later, the party was still not there, and it seemed to be that the party was going into the room that we were actually sat in. food was average and pricey for what you got in my opinion. The appetizer portion of croquettes were two tiny croquettes, which I was not aware of when we ordered as we had four people in our party, and we were not told they were very good. The rocket was not good don’t bother French onion soup very good OK tomatoes were not ripe. desserts were very good. drinks were delicious service at the actual table was very good and very prompt almost to prompt as we were clearly being ushered out for a party. I wouldn’t recommend it’ll definitely be my first and last time here.

    The hostess was visibly irritated when we got there. And curt when we spoke with her. When I arrived (3 mins before our reservation) I checked in and stood to the side. 10 mins after our reservation was supposed to start I checked back in and asked if our table was ready instead of saying anything she lifted the menus she was holding in sort of a "what do you think I'm doing?" manner. I laughed it off but we were sat at the front of the front of the restaurant and unfortunately had to witness her treat other incoming guests the same. Otherwise, the food was good and the other staff was fine but considering how low the bar was for service at that point they could've been terrible who knows.

    My boyfriend and I moved here from Chicago this year, and as we all know, Chicago has a fantastic food scene. Our meal at Frenchie was the first meal we’ve had here that made us feel like we were back in Chicago. The ambience was absolutely perfect for a date night. The portions were generous and we felt they were thoughtfully prepared. Service was excellent and the drinks were also great. Frenchie will be a place we return to and I’m so grateful we came across it.

    I was served something different than what I ordered. Both dishes were pasta so I didn't realize immediately. The waitress didn't come over again in a timely manner so I just ate what I was given. It was a small portion of pasta with mushrooms that cost $30.

    I was really excited to come to this restaurant because I’ve heard great reviews, me and my other party guest I attended with were very confused in the inconsistencies in pricing that was advertised on the open table menu compared to the actual menu at the restaurant. I planned ahead of time to get a croques madame or a standard frenchie. Upon looking at the menu in person and getting the receipt we noticed we were charged a more expensive price. On open table menu, the standard frenchie is listed as $14, with the addition of ham another $14. I chose this dish with and specified scrambled eggs for my egg type. I did not order any meat with it, but didn’t realize until I got the dish that there was bacon with it. Totally fine because I love bacon and gladly ate it! But it was an up charge and I did not notice the difference until I saw the receipt and saw I was charged $36 for the plate. When looking at the menu in person too, the croques madame was in the mid $20, I believe around $26, as opposed to the advertised $13 on open table. I do believe the service and quality of food was worth it, but I will be wary next time of what is advertised online and what could be the actual price in person.
