    We came for the steak tartare and oysters and were not disappointed. We also shared the duck wings, deep fried cheesy gnocchi and raw tuna. All dishes were flavoured and presented with care and panache. Darling waiter. Eclectic art including Frenchie paintings and photos. Hilarious logo with three Frenchies guzzling wine from the bottle. Intimate and cosy ambience.

    Took a couple friends out to this restaurant. What a hidden gem in Calgary's Beltline. Love how it is tucked away behind the UNA Pizza takeout. Very nice ambience and you feel like you're in a movie with very nice music and a great bar with a wide variety of wines and specialty cocktails . Food was delicious and prepared beautifully. Showed my friends the little bar in the back too that can be reserved for small parties, very intimate.

    We were warmly greeted upon arrival by a very friendly staff member and the atmosphere was fun and cozy. However, our server seemed less than enthusiastic to be working. It took her a long time to come to our table and she seemed offended when we didn’t take her recommendations. The food was good but took a long time and I found it slightly expensive for the amount. I believe we could have overlooked this if the service had been better. There was a good wine selection.

    Suh a cute spot and a great vibe. We were right under a speaker so it was a bit loud. Oysters were outstanding as were the muscles. We ordered the Frenchie Fondue with baby potatoes and Crispy brussel sprouts and it lived up to the hype! Service was excellent. We will be back.

    We enjoyed the Classic fondue & 3 different foods to dip which was lots for two people. Everything was excellent the food, service and surroundings. The only reason I gave it 4 stars for value was that like most restaurants, Frenchies liquor prices are pricey.

    TBH, I am obsessed with their olives which is why I had to go back ; ) I love this place! They make the BEST dirty martinis and the food is really good. It seems like it's always hopping. The only downside was that our dessert never came (well, maybe it did, but we had a play we were heading to and it hadn't arrived when it was time to leave. That being said, I will still go back- it's just a fun little spot with really great service, on the whole.

    It was our first time here and we loved it so much! We are definitely going to go back - especially on Wine Wednesdays. The atmosphere, service and space were really cool.
