The waiter's colleagues called police after he was shot in the shoulder with a handgun in the Noisy-le-Grand suburb east of Paris on Friday night.
Attempts to revive the 28-year-old were made, but ultimately failed and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The gunman, who a witness said lost his temper "as his sandwich wasn't prepared quickly enough", fled the scene.
French police have said that a murder investigation has opened up.
Local residents said there are high crime levels in the area, notably drug-dealing and public drunkenness.
A local women said to The Guardian:
"It is sad. It’s a quiet restaurant, without any problems. It just opened a few months ago."
