Went in on-spec, just looking for something good and we found it! The service and food were both excellent. With the Alsace speciality, it was nice to find something French, but also different. The service was both welcoming and efficient, the food that we chose could not have been better - try the "meat skewer". We would definitely recommend chez... More

We arrived for lunch without reservation, under one of those showers of rain so typical of Northern Europe in February. Our good luck: we found the best door! Super friendly staff, excellent food, and do not forget to take a tour around because the decoration is something special: inlaid marquetry work by Alsatian artist https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Spindler. Definitely a place to come... More

This restaurant has a rustic feel to it, there is a big display of seafood on ice, which I'm sure tasted lovely, however unfortunately this does make for fishy smell, not great if you're not keen on fish. We ate in a large group and had pre-ordered our meals. They came to us hot and on time, everyone got what... More

Paris brasseries are really fun places to eat: large menus, lively crowd, pleasant atmosphere. Chez Jenny is no exception. Service was very good, despite the crowded restaurant on a Tuesday night. The comforting and hearty food was perfect for a winter evening, whether it was the onion tart, the choucroute, or the Grand Marnier crepes.

We waited for about ten minutes for someone to seat us while the bearded elderly man behind the oyster bar just stared at us. Eventually the greeter came down in black service attire with a two foot high stack of menus. He started to seat us but by then I needed the restroom. When I tried to ask he interrupted... More

Waiter was so rude (basil fawlty) it was funny, he then did seem to enjoy the fact that we couldn't believe how abrupt he was and became more friendly.

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.
