    This used to be one of our favorite places in the South Metro because it was unique. Things that we liked that are now gone/different: - pre-dinner relish tray (gone); - seafood add-on options to steak entrees (gone); - choice of potato sides (now they force garlic mashed - but you can add a full side of au gratins? So you'd have two potato sides?); - Salad options with dinner now very limited (3 dressings, no Caesar option). Loved it with the supper club feel AND menu. Now it seems they're trying to be like everyone else - appeal to the masses but lose the fanatics - perhaps smart with outlet mall open. I hope it works for them because I really like this place but now we're less than excited about coming back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    Jensen's has been our go to spot for special occasions. This was our first opportunity to get back since the remodel. Physically we liked what you did refreshing the decor. However, although the food was still good I think the menu changes were not a substantial improvement -- perhaps even a step back. You seem to have lost what made Jensen's special. It is now just another above average restaurant Our server on this occasion was terrible - not what we had come to expect at Jensen's. Inattentive would have been an improvement. She was not rude.just didn't seem care about Jensen's or her job. Too bad But based on our overall history with Jensen's we will probably give Jensen's one more chance before looking for another special place.

    Soup and salad were presented at the same time and before either was half eaten the entree was served. I got the impression that Jensen's was eager to free our table for their next patrons!

    Wanted a nice dinner on a Friday evening and Jensen's was the perfect choice. I had broiled shrimp with wild rice risotto and it was excellent. My friend had the basil chicken and claimed it was outstanding. The popovers were a little over done but who cares when the rest of the food was so good. Our server was very attentive but didn't hover so that's a big plus in my book.

    The evening was special as it was our 51st. wedding anniversary dinner. My wife and I, along with our friends, are frequent diner's at Jensen's. Last year we celebrated our 50th. anniversary at Jensen's, with twenty-five family members and guests. As always, the staff did an excellent job.

    Jensen's Food and Cocktails has been a favorite of ours for years. The food is wonderful, along with great ambiance and service. I would describe it as a classy supper club with amazing food and wine. We were celebrating our young son's birthday, and they brought out this huge piece of cake for the whole table to share. Thanks!

  • JENSEN'S: WHAT HAPPENED?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 9/23/2014
    We've come to the Supper Club for years, but this is the 1st time back after the reno. SO disappointed. Parmesan Walleye was soggy & bland...no crispiness, more like poached with soggy breading. Salads just "okay". No balsamic on the menu, so I settled for a too sweet vinaigrette. My friend (here from Cleveland) had a combo with fish that wasn't sauteed as she requested but had some kind of breading. Her petite filet was well done instead of med rare, and had a bacon wrap (probably to add fat, since it was tough). Her potatoes were bland. Very disappointed. I hope the quality can be upped. Our suggestion is to cut the menu options by about 75% and just do a few choices really well. More isn't necessarily better.

    We ate at Jensen's for the first time on Saturday and are experience was perfect from the start. The hostesses were very pleasant and respectful, the waitress was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable, the appetizer was cooked to perfection and the salad was fresh and sized perfectly. When we thought the surprises were done out came the popovers and they blew our minds. When are dinners arrived my prime rib, my wife's lobster and steak instantly made our taste buds explode with anticipation. The steaks were the best we had ever had and the lobster was delicately perfect.

    My husband and I just went to Jensen's for our 32nd wedding Anniversary, a wonderful experience! We have been there a few times before, but it is even better now that they have remodeled, we highly recommend this restaurant. The petite filet and parmesan walleye, surf and turf with flourless chocolate torte(we split that) was all perfect, great service & atmosphere!

    Love coming to Jensens for the prime rib however on this visit I sent it back as soon as the server delivered the food. Medium rare should not still be mooing! You could tell that rather than cutting me a new piece they just threw it on the flat top to brown it, not good. Not sure I will be back which is sad because we used to love coming to Jensens.

    We had a great table for our party of 6 with 2 kids. The server was excellent but some of the food was inedible. The kitchen must brine their shrimp and fresh cucumbers to keep them from spoiling because they were extremely salty. They are noted for their steaks that is true. The restaurant is excellent if you order steak.

    It was okay, I was hoping for a more quiet, romantic atmosphere but it was loud and more like a sports bar. The prime rib was too salty and too small for the price. When it says it comes with asparagus....three sprigs??? Really???

    We celebrated a wedding anniversary at Jensen's. We were congratulated and the service was very good and the waiter very helpful in selecting our dinner entrees. My husband loved the ribs and home-made BBQ sauce and my crab cakes were wonderful, and loaded with crab meat. My only disappointment was that I had to order their wonderful hash browns separately. Wish they would have come with the meal as a starch selection. Creme Brulee and bread pudding finished off a very enjoyable evening. We will definitely be back!

    I was given a Jensen's gift certificate last Christmas and I waited 9 months for just the right time to use it. My friend from Las Vegas came in town for a visit and I treated her to dinner. She said it was one of the best meals she's ever had. So this was one of the best Christmas presents I've ever received.

    Jensen's Supper Club has been a longtime favorite of my family, and I love that they're now open for lunch, and have expanded their menu to include more casual options, but still retaining the old favorites. I sat outside on the patio the last couple of visits, and it's nice to have that option while the weather is nice.

    Jensen recently changed their decor (which is good) and added a patio (which is great) but the menu change not so good. I miss the house salad or being able to have more than one serving of the salad. They combined sides with the crab dinner which made it much more expensive for what it was worth. 34 now with a small serving of rosoto and 3 sprigs of asparagus. Was 22. I dont think the sides were worth 12 dollars. Overall, it was just ok. Probably wont return anytime soon and I was a fairly regular customer Also the walleye I order was again ok but with the added red potato side just wasnt the same. Wish it had been better.

    My son-in-law and I ordered the Prime Rib. Tough, fatty, and undercooked. My wife says, send it back. I say, they ask you right at the table how you want your meat prepared. I ordered it medium and it came rare. If they prepare Prime Rib to a different standard, the wait staff should tell you that. Why should I have to send it back? Then sit and wait while the rest of my family is eating their dinner? My son ordered the "petite" steak and walleye. Petite is an understatement. The steak was the size of a silver dollar. Very disappointed as we have eaten there many, many times. But this was the first as the new Jensen's Food and Cocktail restaurant. I hope this is not a sign of things to come.

    My wife and I have been coming to Jensens for years. We love the food, the service and mostly the atmosphere. But last Saturday night, we were disappointed. I ordered Prime Rib medium. It was more like rare. I don't like to send food back because I want to eat my meal the same time as my wife eats hers. We love the salad, sitting outside and overall, always been a great time. I can tell that Jensen's must be trying to get younger people to come and eat there. We had a couple of screaming kids next to us. We live in Chanhassen, so we drive to have a quiet, good meal and have no problem paying the extra for such features. I am not saying that we won't come back, because we will, we were a bit disappointed with last Saturday night.

    First time to Jensen's since their remodel and new menu. I actually kind of missed the old homey feel. The new menu now has many menu items that include a potato so no need to order a side of potatoes. Their house salad served in a large bowl for the table is now gone. You can still get that same salad as a side if you ask for it--its not on the menu. My ribeye steak was very good, but not perfect as usual. My wife's striped bass served on risoto was also very good. The wait staff seemed to be considerably younger and more male since our last visit in the spring. Our waiter was good, but again not as good as some of our waitresses in the past. All in all, it was a good night out as always at Jensen's
