What you should know before you go for dinner in Paris and in France in general. First of all, a meal is as much a ceremony as it is a necessity. Though the French enjoy food greatly, they also take it seriously, and treat the ceremonies of mealtime with respect. There is no such a thing like a quick lunch or dinner so make sure you are not in a rush when going to restaurant.

Firstly, when you enter the “resto” you should wait for the “maitre-d'” who will welcome you and find you a suitable table. Your waiter will be a professional, always polite, always efficient. The chef will be good and careful in his or her work. This is their obligation to you and also their professional pleasure.

The part you play in the ceremony is equally important, and it is expected that you will play your part properly.

Play the game by the rules to receive good service. Always treat restaurant personnel like professionals, for that's what they are. Be formal and polite, and try to do things the French way. (In France, serving in restaurants and cafes is not a job done by those waiting to find other jobs, it is done as a lifetime career.)

To call the waiter, say "Monsieur" (not "Garçon") or "Madamoiselle" or "Madame," as appropriate.

Cocktails (aperitif) are drunk only before dinner, never at the table with a meal. Coffee will only arrive after dessert, never with a meal. This may not be your preference, but these are the French rules of the ceremony, and if you order coffee at the beginning of lunch or dinner, even in an informal café, it will be brought after the meal anyway.
