I ordered one of the sauerkraut dishes, they bring the dish to the table in the pan, it was way too much food for one person but very good. They provide English menus if you aren't fluent in French and our waiters were very friendly.

Last night in Paris and looking for a nice French meal and although looked great on the menu and appearance the food and service was not aligned. Although I must admit we did select the basic package which saw a very watery entree provided and a main average at best. Wine average unless you are looking to spend big. In... More

I went here for dinner as part of a tour group so we had to choose from a set menu, but it was all very delicious! It was a bit loud because of the group and the long table we were seated at, but that didn't really affect the dining experience. It was pretty busy in general so that's always... More

Visited Thursday 13th March, 2014. I ordered veal, from the 2 course menu, which was terrible. A lump of fat with a tiny bit of meat attached and half a plate of noodles. My husband ordered the pork knuckle, with sauerkraut (easily enough for 2 people) and 2 small potatoes. He said it was ok. but wouldn't recommend it. The... More

First visited Chez Jenny in 2010 and fell in love with the place. Great atmosphere, food and service. Most recent visit, not as good. Adequate but not amazing. Fairly decent steak tartare. I hope the recent visit was an off-night, since at its best this place is Paris at its best.

They know what they're doing here, and they seem to enjoy it. The food and the service have been consistently good over the 25 years we've been coming back here.

At first led to a cold noisy table in the outside covered section by an indifferent server. Asked to be moved inside. No problem. Ordered canard magret (duck breast), my wife ordered the same. Discussed with server that we wanted it pink and not bloody in broken French. We know that he understood our request, and told us that we... More

On the outside not the place we would go to, but it was recommended by our hotel concierge. A big brasserie specialising in Alsace cuisine. Once we were in the interior was impressive an it turned out to be a real brasserie: crowded, noisy, busy, friendly, good natured and good food. Do try the jarret - pork ham - with... More
