    This eat-in épicerie and wine shop offers delicious food (especially meats and cheeses) and is my favorite spot in Paris. The set prix-fixe menu offers the best value at €30.

    Pleasing relaxed atmosphere, good service, interesting and changing menu, and delicious food served beautifully gave us a delightful experience. Not for traditional classical Parisian fare. If you like an exploratory menu you will be entertained here.

    We really truly enjoyed our time and food in this restaurant! 1. Food was super delicious, we both had "poulet pate noire" and you'd think chicken wont really blow your mind but you'd be wrong - they made an amazing job, garnished with a delicious potato gratiné tower plus a salad! 2. They have an amazing selection of French cheeses for your starters plus you can choose your veggies from their vitrine (all were well done) 3. Price/quality ratio is also very interesting 4. Interior and design is also cosy and cool 5. Service was 5 star and always friendly + attentive

    I and two friends went to Jeanne A because it had come highly recommended by Trip Advisor and also on a site that recommended its roast chicken, and my friends wanted roast chicken at a reasonable price. The price, frankly, was not high, but the food, including its much touted roast chicken, was sorely disappointing. The chicken was clearly re heated and rather dry, made tolerable only by a rather tasty, but ultimately unremarkable sauce. The portions were also very small; we were each served what amounted to a quarter of an average sized bird. Two of us got some breast and a wing, while our friend got just a small leg and thigh--- mostly bone. It is a mystery to me how this place got rated as one of the best places to have roast chicken in Paris. The entrées and the deserts were ok, but nothing remarkable, either. The water was tepid and tasted of chlorine. Service was fine as long as the place was not too crowded. As the evening wore on, and the place filled up, the service deteriorated markedly. We would have been happy to pay more for better food and service. This place, although moderately priced, is really no bargain.

    Came upon this restaurant as one of the few that we could reserve online. We were not disappointed!! The menu was written in French on a board and passed around tables. The waited tried as best he could to explain in English. We had an entree, main course and dessert for 30 euros - which is a still given the fresh ingredients and portion sizes. They also had a deli in the front with wonderful foods to take out. I would highly recommend this restaurant as true French cuisine not at all touristy.

    We wanted to go to a local restaurant that doesn't see tourists. When you're not a local, you don't know where to go. We found Jeanne A on parisbymouth.com as a restaurant that accepts reservations on-line (helpful when you're not confident about speaking French on the phone). What a great find! It's very small. They have a 2-course or 3-course prix fixe menu. The 3-course menu was 27 euros and completely worth it. The food was fabulous and not tiny portions like some Parisian restaurants. Everything is cooked to order, so plan on spending at least 2 hours there. The waiters were very patient with our minimal French.

    My husband and I had dinner at Jeanne A as their sister restaurant Astier was closed for renovations. We had no problem booking online via email. Upon arrival, we were seated in the restaurant with a great view of the open kitchen area. Our server was incredibly friendly and humorous, going great lengths to confirm and explain to me which of the dishes are gluten free (including bringing menu ingredients to the table when my rough French and his better English were having trouble meeting in the middle!). Throughout the meal he was helpful and available without being overbearing. We each had an entree (the pea soup for my husband, the cockles for me) as well as the roast chicken, for which they are known. While we enjoyed the first course quite a bit, the chicken was unfortunately underwhelming - the skin missed the crispness we had hoped for (just a personal preference) and we found it to be lacking flavor. However, the salad was fresh and the potatoes dauphinois were creamy and decadent. It may have just been an off night for us, given the many positive reviews of the food, but given all the wonderful restaurants in town we'll likely not return.

    From start to finish a great experience. Unimposing frontage and seating but don't let this put you off. Manageress went through prices and menu thoroughly. Order taken quickly and not too long to wait. Rabbit pie and two milk lambs - all excellent. Desserts -Millefeuille (wonderful, a custard cream type with pistachio), apple and pineapple crumble and cheesecake - again all excellent. Staff friendly but not cheap especially the wine. Why is the wine so expensive in French restaurants!

    This is great bistro next door to its more famous cousin, Astier. We found it one evening when we dropped in to Astier hoping to get a table (bad idea!). We made a reservation for another night at Astier, then went looking for food. We didn't look far, as Jeanne seemed inviting and had a table. During our meal (at a the sidewalk table) one of the staff from next door came out and recognized us. He told us the restaurants were related, "same kitchen, different proposition". We had a lovely meal and learned something too. Recommended.

    Good location, nice and cosy restaurant. Fresh food, welcoming employes. Always a good moment. Too bad, the wines are very expensive.

    We made a last minute reservation to this place so we had a corner table with a fridge nearby:)But it was ok for us because we were in Paris.Our waiter was really professional but also very friendly.He reccomended some good wine with our meals. The atmosphere was warm, cozy but hip. There were both families and couples, generally locals(which is always good). However the food was a disappointment. We ordered roast chicken and lamb leg since they were meals of the day. They were nothing fancier than the ones I cook at home. Some creamy mashed potatoes were a plus but not enough. We also had some starters and deserts with coffee.starter+main+desert was 29 Euros as a menu. With coffees and one glass of wine each, we paid a total of 75 Euros. It is a normal price for a above average Paris restaurant but I had similar dinners for lower prices.

    3 of us trooped in just after 2 but were greeted well, not something you always get in Paris when you're 'late' for lunch. Prix fixe menu shown on blackboard and well explained. I had goats cheese croquettes which came with olive tapenade and green salad. Good. Followed by what sounds weird but really hit the spot - a lobster croque Monsieur! Tastes of basil pesto thrown in. Delicious. Great coffee. Would love a place like this next to where I work. Open every day. Excellent service.

    This was really close to where I rented an apartment in Paris. They have both a deli section and a small restaurant. When the weather is good the outdoor seating is perfect for a light meal. Good, large portion sizes. I was pretty happy with all of my selections (foie gras and endive wrapped in ham), though another member of my party did not really enjoy her meal (heavy cheese coquettes and duck confit that was just a bit too oily and not very crisp, but still edible) so it really depends on what you choose.

    My husband and I enjoyed a nice Sunday dinner at Jeanne A on a recent trip to Paris. Service was friendly, and the portions were much larger than expected. I had a great roast chicken dish that came with potatoes au gratin and a green salad. Husband enjoyed the leg of lamb - this also came with the same sides. Our server suggested wines by the glass to go with our respective dinners, and they were spot on. No tourists other than us when we were there, as far as we can tell.

    Superbe food and ambiance and efficient and professional service. Different combinations of food, I definitely recommend the croque homard.

    This restaurant was located on the first floor of the building where we rented an apartment while in Paris, and this meal was our last before our early morning departure the following day. Service was wonderful. The staff was very accommodating to our elementary French and took time with us so we could make good decisions about our meal. I started out with the duck pate, which was outstanding. It's served with fig chutney and worked beautifully on the plate. We both had the roasted chicken (with a scrumptious gravy), scalloped potatoes and roasted vegetables. YUM! For dessert we ordered one raspberry Napoleon and a molten chocolate cake- both were outstanding. Consider this casual restaurant and shop for a pleasant, delicious dinner while in the Republique/11th AR area. You won't be sorry!

    Warm, welcoming staff and food was well prepared. A fraction of the price we paid at Bistrot Paul Bert but infinitely more enjoyable. Would definitely return.

    Pleasant, tasty, nice staff. Great menu. A terrific little find in Paris! Green gazpacho was superb as was the chocolate cake and veal on pepper. Nice and simple wine list.

    1st off hats off to the staff for not beeing the typical Parisian "rude" to english speakers. The waiter was very helpfull,translated everything on the menu and explained the wine in a manner not demeaning. Prices are around 12€ for a main. Food was great, wine was exvelent and went well with the Compte cheese(which was super)
