How to Order Food in French

How to say basic dining phrases in French

A pronunciation guide to ordering food in France

This is a list of a few phrases that are beneficial for your food travels to French speaking countries.   While a lot of people in Europe speak English (especially in large cities like Paris or Brussels), once you go to the countryside, it is a different story. These English to French Phrases will make all the difference. I am not a native speaker, I just have high school French and the French I have picked up during my yearly travels...and while your server may snicker a little at your pronunciation (because you're using my broken one), you'll get that glass of white wine and that cassoulet you're craving.

I would like white wine: Juh vood-ray duh van blonk

Do you have a table for two?

The bill please: La-deeshon, si' voo play

I have an allergy to crustaceans?

A coffee, please?: Un caffay, si' voo play

For me, the chicken

How much is it?: Seh com-bien?
