We had lunch on 5 January with a family friend. She ordered a choucroute and it was plentiful when it arrived.We opted for the salmon. It was nicely cooked and pleasant to eat. However, when it came to choosing the sweet and we were asking for a description of them,the waiter was pushing the warm pineapple with coconut milk to... 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. Food was awful, ox cheek in red wine was a lump of cheap fatty meat and my wife salmon was poor. the signature dish I wanted wasn't available as the machine... More

We were so impressed by the warm welcome and service that we received we returned again to this restaurant. It was clean, bright and had a great atmosphere. The staff were most attentive, right from the lady who took our coats when we arrived and showed us to our table. The menu was explained and wines recommended. The Alsatian food... More

After a reccomendation from our hotel concierge we decided to come here. I had a garden salad which contained ingredients I could not be sure of, a steak ordered well done came out rare and tough as anything. Would not reccomend to anyone if they had to. Expensive and not worth it at all. Left hungry and disappointed. Chef Ramsay... More

We returned to Chez Jenny in hopes of a better experience than earlier this year. We have been going to Chez Jenny for more than 30 years. It has been the venue for many gatherings for family and friends over the years. We are happy to report that Chez Jenny is back in the saddle. The restaurant looks sharp and... More

Good food in a nice atmosphere, good value for money taking the quality of the food into account. They also do an excellent lunch time deal.

We honestly had better food and service at the Alsatian dining tent we visited in the Christmas market at La Defense... Very overpriced for what you get. It took 25 minutes before we were even acknowledged by our waitress, our order was wrong for both the mains and dessert courses (we could never get her attention to rectify things and... More

Just stopped by with my girlfriend and we waited 10 mins before being greeted. Then he gave us the wrong WiFi password when we were seated. Apparently if u didn't speak French they treat you like you're not there unlike the other patrons that spoke french; they were all warmly greeted and treated well. This place earns a star for...

We've never tasted such yummy sauerkraut (chou). And the sausages were out of this world. This restaurant will always be a "must" on each trip. Not cheap, but definitely worth the price. It's truly a locals' place, and a very upscale group they were. Service was pleasant, if a bit aloof at first, but with some small conversation these real... More

We ate here one Saturday evening and luckily we were hungry, as this is more a German than a French restaurant - to be fair they do say its Alsace cuisine. Its just off the Place de la Republique, and has a decent and lively atmosphere. The food is pretty typical Germanic fare - large portions of mean and fish... More
