We booked this restaurant for 2 pax. When we arrived, we waited for 5 min standing without anyone paying attention to our presence. A grunting waiter arrived and he barely said "hello"... I told him that we booked with "TheFork" and he asked us to wait. While waiting, a waiter had an argument with another customer in the queue. We... More

Great food and wines, topped with a surprisingly good service. Visited this place twice for diner and was packed both times...Although waiting time was ok, is advisable to book a table in order to get a good table.

We ate here on a busy Wednesday evening on the recommendation of our hotel porter and were not disappointed. Delicious Veal Marengo and a Choucroute Strasbourg (served on a very hot salver) washed down with a lovely Alsace Pinot Noir. This was topped off with Creme Brulee and Ice Cream special for 50 Euros including the tip. The service was... More

Very classily decorated place with good service and moderate prices. They specialize in food from Alsalce and also a good wine list from the region to accompany the meals.

We recently had the opportunity to enjoy dinner at Chez Jenny, near Place de la République, Paris. We were visiting Paris for the weekend and given the autumnal feeling in the city I really wanted a good choucroute. There are 5 or 6 excellent addresses for a choucroute in Paris and this is one of the best. The meal was... More

Reservation not needed, as the restaurant is plenty large. Service was ok, got tired of the attempts to up-sell, which was done in an aggressive manner (bullying you to get a different wine, a different food item, etc). The French onion soup was good, the choucroute was disappointing. Maybe ny expectations were too high, as I had hoped for a... More

Our tour bus had lunch at Chez Jenny. What a wonderful experience. It's a charming restaurant and the food is absolutely delicious. The staff was prepared and able to effectively serve us all (three busloads) in a short time very efficiently. I really enjoyed the meal and atmosphere and if I'm ever in Paris again, I'll definitely go there.

Service was excellent. Entrees of snails and foiegras were ok although nothing to write home about. The steak was overcooked and a little tough .The fries were not nice . Overcooked and full of oil. The poached pork knuckle was good and again the fries were not . Wine is grossly overpriced . Much better restaurants can be found nearby... More

I love Choucroute, a cabbage dish with tons of different smoked sausages,smoked meat. smoked pork shoulder, thick Bacon slices, potatoes,... Depending the style you ordered, you can have it seafood way. It is a traditional dish from the Alsace region (East of France), you can find similar versions in Germany but the Alsace one is very typical and unique of... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
