Surprising little joint next to some offices in a construction area by the Wharf. Parking is difficult, you can pay $16 for a spot and the street is always full. Great food, great quick service by happy but barely-English speaking staff. Steamed veggie dumplings stuffed with chopped mushrooms were terrific; the spicy drunken noodles was too, and the tofu was super fresh; scallion pancake was just fine, and the happy hour coconut vodka and coffee cocktails started the evening off just right. Service is FAST. Convenient for Arena Stage, which is just across the street and up a block.

We visited this restaurant on a Wednesday night about 7:00. It was a very quite & cute place. We ordered the cream cheese wontons to start & both of us ordered the orange chicken. Soooo GOOD!!! Our service was great! Always kept our glasses full.

Jenny’s is close to Arena Stage and we ate here for the first time two nights ago. We were there at 5:45 prior to a 7:30 show and it was dead quiet until about 6:15 when other theater goers arrived. The place is mall and the menu is atypically small for a Chinese restaurant but the food was very good. They have a bar and the service was very good. Prices are modest compared to many of the wharf area restaurants. We will come back for sure.

This is a nice neighborhood restaurant that serves excellent food. I usually get take-out so I can't say much about the service. I hope they stay when Phase II of The Wharf begins.

Jenny’s is an unassuming place but the food and the service is really good. I had the spicy beef soup which was really excellent. They managed to dig up a beer that they thought they were out of for me. It’s exactly how I like my restaurants: no frills, just great food for a very modest price. I absolutely recommend this place.
