Frenchie Wine Bar, Au Passage, Le Galopin, Pierre Sang Boyer?

Of the four mentioned, any preferences? This is for our last night in Paris and we plan on hanging around for a bit around Rue Oberkampf after dinner. I've heard great things about all these places, but can't decide! Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Ah they're so different; but I'd guess if forced I'd choose Pierre San Boyer in Oberkampf.

      thank you for the suggestion! is it very difficult to get a table there since they do not take recommendations? we are a party of 5 and would prefer not to wait a long time for a table.

        A party of 5 will certainly wait a substantial time to be seated at Pierre-Sang Boyer and may not even find seats.
        The only way is to show up shortly before opening (7 PM).

          Thanks I think I'd prefer a place where we can make reservations then. Is Au Passage still good now that James Henry has moved to Bones? Would I get a great meal if I dined at any of these places? If so, we may just play it by ear.

          That's correct; me I go just before noon. An additional problem is that many of the seats are either at the counter or 2 at a table, making seating 5 together hard.

        With your original choices narrowed, you might consider Le Villeret for a last meal. It's just off Oberkampf, has an outstanding wine list and quite decent food.

          Frenchie Wine Bar has always impressed me with their delicious comfort food, but it's not hardcore classic French ...Boyer I found quite disappointing a few weeks back, the chef coming in hung over and preening around after the service (not that impressive) was already over and people were wondering what the fuss was all about ..
