Visited the restaurant with family for dinner. Decor and atmosphere was typical Parisian, service superb and food quality was above average for some and not so good for others. Desserts were exceptional. Fairly good in terms of value for money.

We came here per a tripadvisor forum about soup de l'oignon, and asked for it. We had 2 soups, and then meat with fries (I didn't have a main course because I was too full from the soup) water and wine. It ended up being very expensive but well, the food wasn't bad so I can't complain much! If you... More

We had a lovely meal here with choices from the affordable express menu. Generous and tasty servings of duck terrine for entree and equally generous and tasty choices for our main course. Service was friendly and efficient.

This is a beautiful belle epoch restaurant and the dish was worth the 20€ it cost. Nice people, a pretty place, good service and generally good food, so why was I disappointed? The meats served as part of the choucroute were cooked separately and not finished in sauercroute, so they had a flavor missing. Nevertheless, a goo dish in a... More

We have eaten here several times on trips to Paris in the past, so when we were wondering where we could go on our last night in the city this time, we decided to return. My husband chose the Chez Jenny special sauerkraut, which he usually has when we eat here. It's fairly expensive, at just under €30, but you... More

Lovely place and delicious, if expensive food. Unfortunately the experience was spoiled for us by the waiter, maybe he was the Maître' de, dressed in a fine suit but giving the appearance he felt he was by far superior to the customers - looking around he had the same attitude with all, not just us, with not a smile or...

I came across this restaurant on one of my walks through Paris and thought I'd give it a try. It specialises in Alsatian food (all kinds of sauerkraut dishes and flammkuchen/tarte flambée). I had codfish on sauerkraut and it was pure bliss (both the fish and the sauerkraut). Now I come from a country where sauerkraut is nothing out of... More

On our tour of Europe, we where suppose to have a nice French dinner as a final meal in Paris. When we got to the restaurant, we learned that they clearly viewed as Americans that can be ripped off.

Our tour guide recommended this place. A little more upscale that your usual cafe/restaurant in Paris. Food was excellent & wine was delicious. They do have menus with english & the waiter spoke english as well.
