Jenny's is an Alsatian restaurant near the place de La Republique. It has been open as written on the menu since 1932. The beautiful interior with wood trim sets You up for a serious mood and high prices, but the prices were average Parisian level....We were here only because we lived nearby, not because of our attachment to Alsatian cuisine. However, I can't say that I had anything against Alsatian cuisine, which is more German than French. German with a French accent. High-calorie and delicious. Opus magna Alsace-sausages and shukrut (sauerkraut) are on the menu, of course. Fat, delicious and very harmful. We took another Alsatian hit " Flammekueche "or in French tarte flambée, the literal translation of"flaming pie". Well, how do you do without onion soup? Of course, you will find great Alsatian Rieslings, Gewurztraminer, Cremant Brut. However, if you can't live without Bordeaux or Burgundy, you don't need to go to a nearby restaurant, they will pour them here.But of course I drank Riesling.More

With a heavy heart we must report the closure of Chez Jenny near Place de la Republique. We enjoyed meals here for many years, if lucky seated in a cosy 'box'. The food here was mixed - great saurkraut, good chicken, nice oysters, not so...good some weird Alsatian type of pizza. But never mind, because the surroundings were truly spectacular - carved wood everywhere, original frescos on the walls - a wonderful atmosphere. We can only hope that the unique decor of this one-of-a-kind brasserie has been preserved somewhere: it will be truly criminal if this has been lost. It belongs in a museum, or better in a cafeteria of a museum. Gone but never forgotten - salut Jenny!More

Came across this restaurant by chance and was attracted by the idea of choucroute. Everything was good, not great, but good. Service was a bit slow, wine was fine, and the choucroute was good (but I’ve had better). Worth a 4 overall but not sure...I’d return.More

apparently good for Alsatian dishes -- sauerkraut etc. -- but I had just oysters and they were delicious, my partner had artichoke salad that was so good she had a second plate of it. The beer selection was disappointing. Large and traditional old restaurant with...beautiful woodwork inside. Pleasant and helpful staff. Well frequented by residents of the neighborhood.More

We chose the menu. As soon as waiter knows we choose menu he became very rude. Menu food was below with a supreme of chicken worse than any cantine. Maybe their a la carte is ok but our menu was so so poor

We were a party of 15 eating here for New Years Eve. We ordered from a set menu - oysters, crab tartare, scallops - and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Fantastic atmosphere and customer service

The portions were tiny and the steak was inedible and there was more fat than actual steak, the sausages were undercooked and the cabbage tasted unlike any cabbage I’ve ever had - it was disgusting. It is impossible to make cabbage bad so congratulations how...can one person eat all that horrible !!!!! This is the worst food I’ve ever eaten I would not recommend to go there. Myself and my family were feeling very sick. It was overpriced I would have paid £10 for the oringina. I would put 1 star for the drinks and 0 star for the foodMore

Fine location and good Alsace bistro atmosphere.......but service was indifferent & inattentive. Generous portions for local dishes, and convenient to post theatre. You can do better.

First time at Jenny's was greeted with a smile and seated straight away even though they were very busy. The onion soup was to die for and such a large portion,no room for anything else. Second time I was very early and the place was...not open but the manager told me I could have a seat and order a drink, I declined. Third time,what a welcome I received. The manager greet me with a warm smile and shook my hand and then showed me to my seat. The sails and salmon tartar were amazing. Service was First class. If you get a chance go there,you will not be disappointed.More
