Good and friendly service

Best snails and oysters and seafood that we've had in Paris this trip. A little bit pricey but you get what you pay for. Good food. Huuuge restaurant going back into the building. Just near one of the exits at La Republique Metro. Well worth a dinner visit if you are staying in the area.

There were 26 of us for lunch. It was quick and tasty, especially after 10 hour flight. We had a 3 course lunch with red and white wine. It was very nice.

We were here for a group farewell dinner along with other groups. It was fairly noisy. Dinner was OK, service was reasonable, but based on what we saw, I wouldn't go back. Of course we didn't have options for ordering, so the fixed menu (chicken entrée) was what we had. Size was generous, but it wasn't anything memorable. There're so... More

We had reservations and a decent table. Our waiter seemed a little put out that we were mostly ordering entrées and not full meals but we knew we were also going to order dessert. He recommended a wine which was reasonable and pretty decent. Skip the beef dish. Quite a few dishes with German influence, typical of the Alsace region.... More

We had a fabulous meal with our family, all tried a different Flammkuchen and then we shared: Tradition, Sauman, Fromagere, and then shared the Kugelhupf Rhum for dessert. Fantastic experience, excellent and prompt service. Very festive ambience. We can totally recommend this restaurant.

The sausages, pork and sauerkraut were robust and delicious. Particularly enjoyed the home made sauerkraut and the desserts, especially a seasonal rhubarb delight with cream. A big place with formal waiters and the service was professional. Old fashioned European decor. On the night we were there they were serving tourists and locals alike.

Chez Jenny is well worth visiting as an attraction - a HUGE space with multiple rooms, bustling waiters, and an old fashioned, comfortable brasserie decor. A sister restaurant to Au Pied de Cochon, it offers similar mid-priced, familiar food - in this case, from the Alsace region. Excellent oyster, seafood platters, choucroute garni, roast veal - all with medium priced... More

I arrange a dinner for our group of 200 on the bottom floor of this restaurant. The manager was very accommodating as long as we all left by 8:30 pm on a Friday night. They served an amazing, very creamy Quiche Lorraine. The main course was Chicken escalope cooked in Riesling with buttered tagliatelle, which made me feel like I... 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.
