    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.

    We celebrated our forty fourth wedding anniversary and were immediately greeted with Happy Anniversary from all who talked to us, and we were presented with a rose in a vase. The service was excellent, and the food met or exceeded our expectations. We always enjoy Jensen's for special occasions/

    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.

    Returned again for a supper club style dinner and Jensen's was as good as ever. They have upgraded things a bit and all the changes seem to be good. The standards are there, great food, wonderful cocktails and an excellent wine list. Enjoyed seafood and steak and they were done perfectly. The staff was friendly and attentive, so refreshing and relaxing.

    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

    We have been going to Jensens for about 18 years-since they opened. We love the food and the service. Our waitress, Angie, was exceptional. They have remodeled and I am sorry to see they no longer serve fried shrimp. As someone who is not a fan of red meat, I miss that option. I would hope they would reconsider their decision. When I go out to eat, I am not conscious of eating fried foods and I think that may be a mistake on Jensens part.

The cake for our special occasion after our meal (my sons birthday) was a slice of heaven. And the food as always was all fantastic, steaks and prime rib cooked exactly as ordered with delicious flavor. Bravo Jensens!!

    Jensen's is always a good place to go for a hearty lunch or dinner with decent food, but especially well-done cocktails. The service is always good and one always feels welcomed at Jensen's. The interior refresh has eliminated the country kitsch, but the goal of sophistication missed the mark. The new wallpaper is dark, the new black-framed mirrors are bland and not bold enough, although the new carpeting is nice. As much as I love the big, cozy booths, they could have used an entire rebuilding and re-foaming. The springs and indentations are still a pain in the backside, literally. The tradition of the hot popovers is still maintained, but the old familiar relish tray has been eliminated, which is a sad thing to see go!

    we found Jensen's through a Living Social offering. we enjoyed ourselves and returned without benefit of voucher. The food is excellent, the setting very pleasant and the service predictably good....all good reasons to visit again. the only downside is the increase in traffic on the roads due to the nearby outlet mall.

    I found the OpenTable reservation process quick and simple. My wife and I arrived 30 minutes early to the restaurant but Jensen's was gracious and able to seat us quickly. The staff was friendly, the restaurant was very clean and we were not rushed in any way. Seating was "just right" and dinner was surprisingly good. I would not recommend the "Guinness from a can" but will give them a 2 thumbs up for their house red wine. All in all a very enjoyable evening at a very fair price. We will certainly be returning to Jensen's.

    Dined on 8/22/2014
    We have been dining here for many many years and are big fans. But, I was disappointed that the menu has changed and the signature relish tray is now extra. I saw it on the menu for 10.00. ?! The house salad that used to come in a bowl for the table is now a small salad on a tiny plate. My fish serving was small. And I didn't realize it came with potatoes or I would have asked for a green veg instread. The menu seemed scaled back no longer offering combo entrees (ie surf and turf). I realize they are catering to the outlet mall crowd, but they just might lose their local following with all the changes:(
