Tasty food let down by service

The food was rather delicious and fairly well priced. I had smoked salomonspätzel to start and a meat skewer for main, which came with a delicious ratatouille. The interior is brilliant and all original from 1932. Only let down by fairly slow service. And it wasn't particularly busy. Would... read more

We ate here twice during our stay. They have a well laid out menu and the food was great. I absolutely loved the raw escargot and the prawns.

We had a good look around the area and came back to this busy restaurant as that was a good sign. The menu looked interesting and different (after we'd found the English version) and it was based around seafood and Alsace (sauerkraut) cuisine. My son had spatzel for the first time which was wonderful with plenty of delicious salmon. I... More

We had a wonderful early evening Christmas Day dinner here without a reservation. The hostess was so gracious and the wait staff were friendly and even funny. The seafood platter was incredibly fresh and our main was superb. I recommend it. Worth the money.

My husband and I dined at Chez Jenny 3 weeks ago. Neither of us speak fluent French. We were shown to a table straight away and our waiter seemed friendly enough. We enquired about the specials advertised on the blackboard outside but we were not answered. After a couple of attempts, we ordered from the menu instead. It took over... More

mediocre food . First day in Paris -asked if service was included and the waiter replied that I could add service if I wanted - which I did at 10% - later realized service is always included in Paris restaurants.

Dear Lee, We're truly sorry that you didn't like our cuisine. However it is prepared on place by our Chef from fresh high quality products.

First night in Paris. Staying close by. Tired. Jetlag. Found Chez Jenny and sat down. Menu was a little limited to my liking. I ordered the meat skewer and my partner had a salad. Food was good but not spectacular. Service was good

We must have interrupted the waiting staff at rest as all were grumpy and seemed uninterested. Did not see a smile on any of them especially the maitre d. I had the duck and pork spit both were dry and over done.

The Chez Jenny is a very comfortable Alsacian Restaurant with a house white wine from the Alsace region on the German border. (The beer is good, too). The food is a nice blend of German and French cuisine, with an emphasis on smoked and cured meats and fish. The sauerkraut is great and not to be confused with the way... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood 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 splendor. This neighborhood 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.
