    At the first it seemed like it was going to be a good dinner. We got there and were greeted, the hostess was kind. Once we got sat we waited over 30min and not once did a waiter or waitress come by to introduce themself or take a drink order at least to start the night. Buss boy didn't offer water at all as well just cleaned the table behind us. So my experience was a negative one. Food could be great but the service does not make me want to go again. We were seated outside not sure if they didn't know but still poor customer service.

    Party of 5 for a birthday celebration. Four of us were served but we had to wait 15 minutes for last entree because it was “ given to another person”. This was Not acceptable. Waiter gave only minor apology but no compensation. Very disappointing

    I was excited to try this little Bistro on Coronado Island, and since I was going to the theatre just a couple of doors down, it seemed the perfect pre-theatre dinner choice. However, I was wrong. I made a reservation for two, but when I arrived alone, (my friend’s flight was delayed), I was relegated to the worst table in the empty restaurant. When I asked the hostess for another table, she informed me that everything was booked. However, when I left, an hour and a half later, 80% of the tables were still empty. Single women are often treated as second-class citizens, and unfortunately that proved true. Ok. I’m seated. I asked my server, a delightful young woman, about a specific Chardonnay, and she said she’d bring me a taste. I also ordered a piece of baguette with a small slice of butter ($7). So a bit of time goes by, and the hostess arrives at my table to tell me the Chardonnay isn’t available to taste, but is a “typical, buttery, oaky California Chardonnay”. What happened to the taste? I ordered it ($19 a glass), and it was fine, though the pour was small. I questioned my server about a few menu choices, and on her recommendation ordered the quiche, which took forever to arrive. Although my server knew I was going to the theatre, I had to wait almost an hour for the dish, which left me only 15 minutes to eat. However the quiche was inedible. Burned on the top, the filling as dry as a bone, and a bottom crust that was almost impossible to cut. I told the waitress that it wasn’t good, and immediately the dour hostess is back at my table telling me that “they make it differently”. Hey lady, I know quiche, have lived in France, and there was nothing about this dish that was edible. They said they’d make another piece “differently”. When #2 arrived, I had 5 minutes before I needed to leave. Sadly, it was no different. They did not charge for the quiche. The photo says it all. I will not be returning.

    Little Frenchie is a must every time we visit San Diego! Their food and service is amazing. I wish I lived in San Diego to visit this restaurant more often. The manager is such a sweet lady, and the staff is always so kind and generous. Definitely recommend!

    The standout for us at this restaurant was poor service we received. The waitress came over after 10 minutes to say she would be back. Another 10 minutes passed… No water given until we asked. There were 10 tables of people with 2 waitresses, one busboy, 1 girl manning the front reservation area and 2 other men- not sure what their role was. We quickly ordered since we didn’t know how long food was going to take. We ordered a salad, bread and a main entree. The food was good but nothing extraordinary. During the meal we weren’t asked for more water or how our meal was. Overall, I think they need better organization plus training to help improve their service. With so many restaurants out there, this one would be a repeat way down the road just to see if things improved. Unfortunately we simply didn’t feel welcome or cared for.

    Ate at a sidewalk table. A real French bistro vibe! Excellent food and great wine pairing. Had Bordeaux Esprit de Pavie 2016 which was fabulous with our beef entrees. Don’t miss this while in Coronado.

    After reading the reviews I was excited to explore this venue… Got the sea bass which is one of my absolute favorite entrées. Well, very little flavor, extremely small portion and preparation was not terribly appetizing. Served over squash that was no larger than an index finger. Believe there were three of these tiny things… Just disappointing and not at all what I was hoping for and particularly a shame for the price.

    We really like Little Frenchie. Dined al fresco last night. For starters we ordered some glasses of wine, cheeses and a baguette as appetizers. Cheeses and baguette were lovely. For mains we each ordered an entree though we were hoping for the “weekend special” duck confit for two. It was not available. The Niçoise salad was good but not spectacular. The sea bass was very nicely done. Overall a pleasant experience.

    Do NOT DRIVE. There is no parking me and 4 of my friends drive to meet here for Sat brunch. It took each of us about 25-30 min each to try and find parking. The food was actually really good though and the ice coffee! The service wasn't the greatest though, pretty slow.

    This was for a birthday celebration. Our experience was fairly average. We ordered a cheese board with four cheeses and only received three. The cheese pieces were tiny to where it was hard to cut small enough pieces for four of us to get a taste. We did receive the fourth piece when we asked for it. The quiche was tasty, the hamburger delicious but the French dip was very average. We found our meal in all to be average and very pricy for what we received. Service was excellent!

    Our server Rachel absolutely ROCKS! My wife ordered Onion soup as an appetizer and the French Dip for an entree. She characterized both as "just okay." I chose the Smoked Salmon Benedict and requested the poached eggs be served very runny or soft. Imagine the chagrin of slicing into them only to observe yolks that looked almost thoroughly cooked. This was our first visit and we agreed that at a less busy time food preparation and ambiance metrics would increase. Bottom line, this establishment is at its best when the fewest patrons are overburdening its operations. When and if we return it shall be at as close to super off peak as possible.
