If you like food from alsace and sauerkraut

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

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.

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

Me and my wife had high expectations but we were really disappointed. The restaurant looks nice but the food was really tasteless. Avoid this place! P&C from Stockholm

We went here for breakfast and were Greeted by a surly waiter and a completely empty room. It was like a time warp, dated and dusty. The manager ran up to us, offering us coffee. We sat down and experienced possibly the worst atmosphere a restaurant could have. Our coffees and pastries arrived after half an hour of impatient waiting... More

Dear Izzy, Thank you for shari,g your comment. We're sorry to read about your experienced, however, it is true that Chez Jenny is a restaurant and thus rather quiet in the morning. Our restaurant has a decor from its creation in the 30s and so it could appear a little outdated but it's more about to allow the customer to... More

I know. I know. French Onion soup? How can someone NOT get that right? Well they can and they did. Of course the rest of our group meal (had 18 students and another professor with me so we had a fixed menu) was fine and included chicken, potatoes, and creme brulee (sp?) but for all of us it was the...

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.

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.
