Frenchie is a sit down casual, easygoing neighborhood wine bar accompanying people in their everyday lives. It is a space to meet, share and savor life, so people can relax with friends while enjoying a French inspired menu.

We offer a range of small plates, hot and cold, which remix French classics - Escargot toasts, Steak Tartare, Tartines, Salmon Tartare, Foie Gras, Steak Frites, Salads, along with Cheese and Charcuterie boards and French desserts: Mousse au Chocolat, Crème Brûlée... Everything is made in house with love, we start from scratch everyday and use only local produces.

The star of our drink menu is definitely the wine, more than 30 references by the glass! But we also serve beers, ciders and cocktails crafted by our mixologists.

We are located in our beloved South End in Boston, MA.

Talk. Sip. Bite. Repeat.

We went on New Years Eve, When we made the reservation there was no notification the menu was pre-fix and you could not order from the normal menu. When we sat down they gave us both the normal menu and special menu. after the waiter came back 25 minutes later to take our order we were then told we could not order from the normal menu and he left so we could look over the special menu, normal menu was only for drinks. It was very confusing. The waiter came back again after 20 more minutes. The appetizers were
not edible. Then they delivered a cold melon soup to us that was just awful, somewhat issulting for the price, we just pushed them away. The main course came it was ok, it was steak and over cooked but the taste was fine. Dessert was the best part of the meal. I don't think I will be returning any time soon. During our meal about 5 other couples left once they were told they could not order from normal menu. This was a major miss for Frenchie. after spending 250.00 for 2 adults on a subpar meal and service I would have rather gone to Grill 23 or the Bristol Lounge. Too BAD!

Our waitress seemed a little put out by having to actually wait on us although the bartender was quite pleasant and attentive. I had checked the menu previous to making a NYE reservation and was surprised and disappointed that the only menu available was a prix fixe 3 course meal. The food was very good and rich but a 3 course meal is too much to enjoy.

The chef must have been on vacation. Our food tasted old and poorly seasoned . Our friend could not eat her coq au vin. At least we were not charged for it. I ate mine but had to add a lot of salt. Still it tasted like leftovers The correct elements were not in the salad . Almost no dressing no chicory no blue cheese. We had previously liked the restaurant. Not this time. Very disappointed

If I lived in Boston I could spend an entire afternoon here. Unfortunately we were visiting and had to explore. Diego was perfect so a huge thanks to him for working on Christmas Day and thanks for being open! The food was amazing. I felt like we were hanging out at a friends house the whole time. I’ll be back for sure.

Everything was delicious. Only disappointment was we ordered the Branzino to be shared by two people and it was quite a small fish to be shared by two. It was delicious but should not have been for two people. We ordered a couple desserts so all was fine in the end.

The menu had so many good choices! Service was spot on and the server gave excellent descriptions of every dish we asked about. The bartender paired the perfect wine with the duck too! Comfortable restaurant and friendly atmosphere.

The drinks and food were absolutely to die for and were absolutely worth the money for the quantity and quality. The brussel sprouts and escargo toast are a must; and if you're a goat cheese lover I would definitely get it. The peartini and ginger smash are 10/10. Looking forward to visiting soon!

We were so excited to try frenchie! As someone who lived in Paris i was looking forward to the traditional french “East going” ambiance. however we were so sad that the atmosphere appeared more concerned about being “trendy” than traditional. The cuisine was fantastic but we wish we felt more at home : (

Yummy brunch and cocktails. The setting was really nice. However the space between tables are a bit tight even for a thin person for my taste. Other that that we enjoyed the overall brunch experience.

Lovely interior and great food for a good price, but went on a Saturday afternoon with a reservation, and there was nowhere to even stand to wait without being in the way. Very crowded and can be loud

It’s a cool place. Good music and vibe. Great wine. The food was fine. Nothing special. My wife had the steak frites and the steak was a bit tough. I had the duck which was good. The purée was on the sweeter side. We had a cheese board as an app which was great. We also had the pork belly. The pork was very good. The accompanying grains were bland.

I’ve always wanted to like this place but it is consistently mediocre at best. The service and ambiance are fine. I’ve returned to this restaurant several times over two or three years and the food has been consistently bad. The escargot toast was drowned in at least a cup of butter making the toast soggy and far too greasy. The frites that came with the steak frites were limp and cold. Literally not one frite was crispy. The steak was fine but underdone and the bernaise sauce was almost non-existent. The food was so bad this time they’ve finally convinced me NOT to come back here.

It’s a cozy, trendy spot. The service is slow and forgetful, but if you’re not in a rush, like we weren’t, it was fine to just enjoy the ambiance. The food was decent, nothing special, considering there are other tapas places in the city that do the exact same dishes for a lesser cost. Definitely worth a visit, maybe just not multiple.
