Another trip advisor home run. Wife and I wanted nice last night out in Paris. While I can afford Michelin 3 stars, no meal is worth $ 500 a person (Noma only costs $250). Just off main fashion drag; 2 blocks from US embassy. All indoor dining with cosy atmosphere, no smoking, excellent English, small well done menu, excellent and... More

We made a last minute reservation at 8:30 on a Wednesday: we'd had a long day touring the Louvre, and after trekking our way back to our hotel, we wanted something relatively close. This place was astoundingly good. The waitress, Celine, was the nicest Parisian we met the entire trip. She offered to translate the menu for us, made (very... More

I read a previous review of this restaurant, which was about 100 feet from my rental condo, and thought I would love to try this place on my son's last night with us in Paris. Our experience was exactly as described. We were greeted by the waitress/hostess and Jean Jacques. The menu was reviewed in English. They were very tolerant... More

I felt cozy and at home at JJ's even though I was 5000 miles away from home. Food was great, especially the truffle ravioli. Chef and waitress explained every detail of the meal in good English. A little pricey but well worth the cost.

I went in this tiny restaurant with my husband last night. We were the only customers. The atmosphere was great, the service was efficient but not pushy and the food was delicious. It is well worth a visit if you are in Paris!

I was in Paris with some new colleagues walking the Champs-Elysées looking for an authentic Parisian experience. I had pulled up TripAdvisor on my iPhone and searched for nearby French cuisine. J J's had come up and my colleagues joked about the name until we walked in and sat down. The atmosphere is very cozy, the waitress was extremely good... More

Quiet little restaurant close to the Champs-Elysées but slightly off the beaten path. The food was wonderful and the service even better. The menu had a variety of selections for most appetites. We started with two delicious, fresh tomato appetizers, one hot and one cold but both amazing. We then had grilled Seabass and veal for our main courses. Both... More

We arrived in Paris tired after our flight. Just looked for a restaurant close to our appartment. We were very positively surprised by the ambiente, the food and very friendly and English speaking service. Try it! You will be surprised!

After looking for a little bistro for supper with two colleagues, we came across JJ's. The service was friendly and jovial and very un-Parisian! There was a good choice of food, I can particularly recommend the foie gras and cote du boeuf, the steak was properly blue. A very convivial evening and I would wholeheartedly recommend and return if ever... More

While a little hesitant when presented a laminated menu, we had a wonderful time at J.J's! We were greeted by the chef/owner followed by a waitress who was very helpful in explaining the menu and helping us select a wine that was a perfect complement to our meal. Aside from the great service, our entrees (truffle ravioli and foie gras... More
