We ended up at Chez Jenny on Christmas Eve because when we were calling around for reservations it was the only place that had a table for us. As it turns out, on our walk there we saw that there were plenty of places open to eat. No matter, we had a nice dinner there. No complaints. The server was... More

Loved everything about this place. From the enthusiastic greeting we received upon entering, to the decor and, most importantly, the food. The quiche starter was one of the best I have ever eaten. My wife's sea bass was perfectly cooked with a spectacular beurre blanc. The Chez Jenny choucroute for one was enough to feed a small army, but delicious... More

On a busy, rainy November evening, this landmark restaurant was bustling. Still, they took a reservation for one, and diligently attended to me when I arrived to seat me as quickly as they could. And quite comfortably I would add, arranged on a banquette between other groups of 2 and 3, there was plenty of room, and the small table... More

Large restaurant which can cater for groups. They serve classic brasserie food: choucroute and seafood. Quality is OK but not spectacular, service can get a bit slow if it is very crowded. Convenient upstairs for large groups.

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

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.
