On a very busy Saturday evening (with the restaurant full) they managed to shuffle tables to find us a space. They apologised saying the service might be slow, in fact everything was great & we had a really enjoyable evening

As it's France dogs are usually accepted, especially if they're small. I'd check first just to be sure.If not you could tie it up in easy view just outside.

Suggest you ask the restaurant, i.e. call them. Not sure why you would think that a reviewer would know that kind of detail! Good luck.
