    Service all around was just poor. The server knew it to, he came and told us that there would be no charge for my meal. Than the manager came by, and with more mishaps she said "no charge for dinner". With the promise we would try it once more. And we will. I think it was an off evening, service is usually much better.

    Our waiter was very attentive to what we needed. Food was excellent, we had filet mignon and shared the au grating potatoes. Just the right amount. Our friend had the walleye crabcake combo. It was such a large portion she had to bring 1/2 home. We loved the whole experience and will come here again.

    Recent remodel, clean, relaxed atmosphere. Outstanding menu choices. If you crave steak or seafood for your special outing this is the place to go. Full bar and wine list. Helpful wait staff. Good with groups or a romantic evening for two. Menu is back to a la carte sides.

    This is one of the top restaurants in the Twin Cities, by far. The food is excellent, the service first-rate. Staff have always seemed glad to have us visit. We came for my wife's birthday and they made it a special occaison. We also met, by accident, some relatives--the staff was very accomodating about putting us together from different sections.

    The meal was great and the service was good. The prices were a bit high for the portions. I would stay away from their desserts. The are not very good. I don't understand why when there are so many great local bakeries.

    Never had been here before but heard a lot about it. It's pricey so I would only go for a special occasion. Wonderful ambiance, great waitress, and of course wonderful food. Steaks,pork,shrimp,and scallops were marvelous. The parmesan walleye was skimpy in portion and a little dry. Loved the pop over and salad!

    Jensen's has become our favorite restaurant. We have visited several times for dinners and brunches and have always been completely pleased with all aspects of each visit. We are always seated promptly when we arrive with reservations, the service is always very good, and the food is always perfect.

    We have been to this restaurant many times and have never had anything but great food and excellent service. I had the Parmesan crusted walleye, which I have had before, and it is excellent. My husband had scallops which were equally good. A couple new things since we were there last was that they eliminated the relish dish and rather than serve the house salad family style you get a choice of which salad you would like. Both good moves! We were seated promptly as always and enjoyed our meal and the restaurant.

    Great place to go for a special occasion which we do, otherwise it is to expensive to be a regular patron. Our food was very good but the waitress was a little to brisk like she had somewhere else to be. Overall we had a very enjoyable experience and would dine Jensen's again.

    This is our second time back since the remodel and we are so impressed. I love the new menu, the addition of salad choices, and the fact that you don't have to order "family style" any longer. The quality of our entrees have always left us wanting for more. Nice selection of wines and the price is right. Very attentive staff. We recommend Jensen's to all our friends.

    My wife's boss recommended this for my birthday dinner. It was packed on a Sat night. We had the Prime Rib with a side of Mushrooms, a salad with Chicken big enough for 3 people, and the Steak and fish ( petite fillet and walleye). Meals come with salad +. Everything was outstanding. The prime rib here is slow cooked for 16 hours and the cut was much leaner than most places. The flavor was excellent. The veggies on the entrees we a little on the small side. But well prepared. you can order more if you like. My wife was delight by here fish and steak combo. The noise level was a bit energetic, but you could still have a conversation. The service was excellent. I had an ice tea, the other two drank water and the bill was $80 + tax and tip.

    We have been long time patrons of this restaraunt. We always enjoyed the classy atmosphere with jazz and great cocktails. Since they opened for lunch, however, it seems that they have streemlined everything and that alone has taken that "old time" atmosphere and made the place feel like a fancy Applebees. The cocktails and bar staff are still great but the menu changes and changes in music as well as decor have cheapened the place.
