Not in France. In Chicago. The Paris Club.
The affectionate couple were spotted enjoying a three-plus hour meal at the Windy City hot spot's exclusive Salon Prive dining space.
The two were talking about how much they adored Rosie's first guest on the live show, Russell Brand, and reacting to the excitement about the positive audience feedback at Harpo Studios – where Oprah Winfrey made an appearance.
As for dining, O'Donnell and Rounds, along with friends and family, enjoyed Paris Club favorites that included goat cheese au gratin, French onion fondue, steak frites, zucchini frites, artisanal cheese plate – which seemed to be a Rosie favorite – and a few irresistible desserts.
O'Donnell's daughter Chelsea, 14, however, steered clear of what the others had and enjoyed the Paris Club burger.
