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.

The ambience is excellent. They did run out of french toast which was a bummer. One of the best cappuccino's I had in a long time.

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.

All of the food was good, but didn't blow me away. We ordered/shared the Shishito Peppers, Oysters, Apple Salad, Mussels and Steak Frites. The service and ambiance was very good.

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.

Been wanting to try and happy to be there on a weekday night where not too loud and good service. Brusell sprouts amazing. We both ordered as our first course. I love eating steak frites out. This was not the best version. Steak was overcooked and tough. N

I think Frenchie is good for a cute brunch, but every time I go, I think two things:

1. They need to be better at cooling the main dining area, it's always SO HOT in there and in the greenhouse

2. The bathrooms need to be cleaner

Otherwise, it's fun to go with one or two or three friends and have a good brunch

Amazing food and wine. Seating very cramped because the place is so small (Three of us crammed into a table for two), but the taste makes up for it.

Lovely restaurant with beautiful decor and great food. We really enjoyed our brunch (particularly the salmon eggs benedict) - food, service, and drinks were all excellent. I look forward to returning to Frenchie soon during the evening to try their dinner menu and great wine list!

A hidden Gem! This resto is delightful in both the food and ambiance. It is authentically french, with a bit of a twist. I love going back and always try something new; I have yet to be disappointed. My favourite is the solarium in the back (you can't reserve and need to arrive early). The staff and the drinks also make this place a hit.

Picture a completely average diner that serves normal breakfast fare. Now double the prices. That's Frenchie. There's nothing special about this place other than being in a hip neighborhood serving to the monolithic 30- and 40-something crowd. If that's your kind of place, good for you-- you'll enjoy your experience. If you want a normal breakfast/brunch, just pick any of the other 2000 places in the Boston area and you'll get an identical experience. Or just make it at home... it's not that difficult to make average coffee and a croque madame.

Mediocre and nothing special. Menu is quite uninspiring. I have moved to Boston about a year ago and really surprised restaurants like Frenchie are getting good reviews. There are good French restaurants in the city but this not it. Plus the service is below average too - for instance if you have cheese and charcuterie board the server should know what is on it!

Great experience tonight in Frenchie! Food was really good, flavourful, beautiful presentation. We took the fried Brussels sprout and figs with melted blue cheese. After that, we took two Boneless chicken, the best chicken I’ve ever had in my life! I’ll definitely go back! Thanks to all the team, who’s very attentive, and smily!
