    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.

    We have dined at Jensen's three times lately and each visit was excellent. The outdoor patio was lovely on a nice, warm, sunny day. We have had lunch and dinner inside the dining room. Our Sunday lunch was excellent and the noise level was less that eating on a Friday evening. Food has been Great each and every meal. Thank you. We are happy to have this restaurant South of the River.

    We set our appointment for 6;30p.m.but arrived around 6;00 P.M.The hostes whop was tall and blond,I believe named Jackie greeted us and did a great job.I said I would like to be out of traffic.She found a circular seating which was really special as we could be close together for our 47th wedding anniversay. I was really impressed.Our waitree Ruth Ann did not say her name until we asked later.I asked for a Checkloszavikan Bloody Mary and explained it was the same as what they served but with 3 olives on a stick.to my surprise she brought 6 olives on a stick and that has never happened before. On your menu you describe how steaks can be prepared. Medium well says a little pink. Not enough space.Bill Tschohl

  • Our 34th Wedding Anniversary
    OccasionalDiner
    Dined on 10/3/2014
    We were celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary. We enjoy Jensen's even though it is usually out of our price range. Groupons or something similar make a difference. The food is great, though the menu has recently changed. My wife enjoys the Chicken Oscar and I usually have the rib-eye or a New York Strip steak. This time my wife had the fish special, which was halibut. She loved it. It was great. I had the Prime Rib. I ordered the 14oz size but should have gotten something smaller. I really enjoyed it. I got it with the horseradish sauce which was wonderful. We were seated in a part of the restaurant that we had not been seated in since the first time we went there years ago. It was very nice and seemed somewhat private.

    Now that the new outlet mall has opened practically next door to Jensen's and it's open for lunch, this is a nice place to take the family. Food is a bit pricey for what it is, but eating in the restaurant is like spending time with an old friend. Service could be punchier. Overall, food is pretty good - not outstanding, but still an enjoyable experience.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • JENSEN'S: WHAT HAPPENED?
    FlavorMaven
    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.
