My wife and I celebrated our
My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at Erling's. We enjoyed the entire evening. However, we particularly enjoyed our appetizers. We had the crab with hollandaise - simple and outstanding. And the sashmi tuna with cucumber ribbons - terrific.
The Grand Marnier souffle is not to be missed.
We both had fish dishes for dinner. They were both very good, but, neither were very memorable.
All and all, a wonderful dining experience.

Exceptional is the best word for this place. When they called to confirm our reservations, they asked what our special event was all about so that they would have a dessert for us. I know my husband's favorite dessert is bread pudding, she said that it is not on their menu. I said ok. The. She said, never-mind, we will see you tonight. What an awesome surprise when the chef made it just for us!!Awesome night there.

Best in Memphis
You'd be hard pressed to find a better restaurant in Memphis. The food is always excellent, the service is impressive, and if you are celebrating a special occasion they will personalize your experience. If you've never been to EJs, do yourself a favor and book a reservation today. Love this place.

What a great surprise! A varried
What a great surprise! A varried and interesting menu, everything we tried was excellent. The restaurant, once a house has many rooms with only a few tables in each. You can actually carry on a conversation! I will definitely be back.

My wife and I dined at Erling
My wife and I dined at Erling Jensens for our anniversary and had a wonderful experience. Our waiter, Too Tall was fantastic. I had the fois gras for an appetizer and lamb chops and my wife had tomato bisque and crab cakes. Both were wonderful. The chef came out several times to talk to us and to see if there is anything he could do to make our evening more enjoyable. What a great place. We look forward to going back to Erlings next time we are in Memphis.

It was pretty empty the night we went so it was quite which was nice. The wine list wasnt that interesting to us so we brought our own bottle. A $10 corkage fee is pretty cheap. The food was outstanding. Very well executed.

Best Restaurant in Memphis!
Erling Jensen's, by far, is our favorite restaurant in Memphis. We have lived here 14 years and it is our go to place for every special occasion! The service is exceptional, the food is to die for, and the overall experience is better than any big city "name" restaurant we have eaten in!
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lived in Memphis for over 25 years and didn't know about this restaurant. We were back in town visiting our son and he recommended Erling Jensn. This is now our favorite. Sea bass was awesome and chocolate soufflé is a must.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another fabulous event
Brought out of town guest and she was wowed by the delicious food, the great service, and the Sunday night chef's special menu.

Great family party dining
Food is excellent and portions are great
Staff and chef are exceptionally friendly as well
Not an everyday menu or price but never disappoints

Erling Jensen's is a favorite and it NEVER disappoints. Seating, ambience (we did go early), service, and of course the food always exceed expectations.

Excellent destination restaurant
Dining at Erling Jensen's Restaurant was a treat. I took my girlfriend of 4 years to the restaurant on Sunday for the "Sunday's are Special" menu and I was excited to see such a varied and fresh menu. Our server Yana was attentive and relaxing. Yana noticed quickly that we were both foodies and we informed her that we work in restaurants in our home town of Jonesboro Arkansas. She told us about her favorite menu items, and was very helpful with the wine list. We are always willing to drive an hour to taste Erling's exciting and different menu items. The highlight of our meal was our appetizer course of sweet breads, cooked perfectly and sauced with a fantastic demi-glace. We will be back soon!

The best dining experience
The best dining experience in the Memphis area hands down!

For a special splurge dinner, Erling Jensen's was perfect. The service was very attentive but not overbearing. The food was creative, flavorful, and beautifully presented. The atmosphere was peaceful and welcoming.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner was a true occasion. Staff universally friendly, wine list extensive, and food quite good. My wife's Dover sole with lump crabmeat was excellent; I had a grouper dish which was quite good, and the chocolate soufflé was as good as I have ever had. Overall atmosphere is one of quiet efficiency- the chef came out several times to inquire about the dishes. Erling Jensen's really saved the day, as we were having our 48th anniversary one day late due to an obligation I had forgotten!! Hope to be there on the right night for the 49th!

excellent, great food, great
excellent, great food, great menu with wonderful selections. It was a real treat to meet owner -Erling Jenson

The food is always incredible, the service is perfect. Erling's Jensen is truly a Memphis gem.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Erling Jensen's delivered excellent food, as always. The food was outstanding. Wonderful menu and wine list. I had let the restaurant know in advance that we were celebrating my son's 18th birthday, and the restaurant added special touches to his dessert. Chef Jensen was there on a busy Friday night, and took the time to come out of the kitchen on several occasions, to check on his guests. We had wonderful meal and overall, a very good experience. My only real complaint, was with the service. Just not what I have been used to in the past, and definitely not up to the level of a restaurant of this caliber, one of Memphis's "Best". The service should have been more "polished".

An absolute must-go
If you want exquisite cuisine for a special night out, Erling Jensen is amazing. Excellent wine list (including option of half bottles in addition to glasses and full bottles), a varied menu for all tastes and little extras like between-courses sorbet and, in our case, a salmon tartlet before the appetizer and divine chocolate cookies after dessert. Service is attentive without being overbearing and Erling himself came out to see how we were enjoying our meal. And unlike some gourmet restaurants, portions were suitable, not microscopic. Five stars across the board.

Took my wife to Erling Jensen to celebrate our anniversary and we loved it. Neither one of us had been before but had heard great things. They were all true. The ambiance, food, and service was impeccable. We had the halibut special and the buffalo medallions. I don't have enough time or space to tell you how good it was. It is a little pricy but worth every penny. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!

As always--the food and service
As always--the food and service are amazing. Many restaurants come and go--but Erlings is consistently the best food in Memphis.

Wonderful Dining Experience
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Erling Jensen's recently. The whole experience was wonderful. The service and attention to detail was very good. We both ordered different things from the Sunday Supper menu. All of the food was delicious. They accomodated my food allergies without batting an eye. This was probably one of the best meals I've ever eaten. We'll definitely go back.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our experience at EJ's was outstanding. The food was terrific, try the lobster pancakes! The service was exceptional, they let us know that anything we wanted off the menu was acceptable and encouraged. They really wanted to cater to us the entire time. Well worth the $$$.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good as always
Another good meal at Erlings. We were offered the friday night prefixe but declined on this occasion. Highlight of the starters: Lobster pancakes. Main Course: Two of us had the ever popular and reliably good lamp. One Elk (very good yet uncommon offering in memphis- diner selected it to change up from the buffalo he normally eats at EJ's) and finally the other had Crispy Cornmeal Dusted Oysters over Mixed Greens because he is on a "diet"

This is one of the very best restaurants in Memphis--great food, great service, great atmosphere--and ALWAYS fabulous.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best in Memphis
Exceptional!! The food was fantastic and the service outstanding. I give everything 5 stars... But the overall wine list was average. Would like to see a more robust selection.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Sunday evening special is always a treat. My leftovers never taste this good! But, big eaters beware: portions are small for this 3-course special, so you might want to add another course or enjoy more bread, as you leisurely relax and rewind for Monday morning.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
The fish and vegetables were soo fresh and delicious!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of the Top in Memphis
Chef still comes out to the tables. Staff VERY pleasant and down to earth with all the service you would expect from this high end dinner. The food was fantastic and the pleasantries that accompanied the meal were equally tasty! The beer list is a little light, but the wine list is very good - and dinner for 2 with 4 drinks and appetizer was $145 - very reasonable considering the atmosphere and quality of food. Fish was definitely better than the lamb. I have been to many restaurants in Memphis and believe that Iris is the ONLY restaurant in Memphis that may be better - IF you can get a reservation - but may not be better depending on who is sitting next to you - and that is difficult to control at best...
All in all - GREAT date night out
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a great experience
Always a great experience for our party with wonderful food.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
What an amazing dining experience. From the moment we arrived we felt like royalty and were very relaxed. The server we had (Stephen) was outstanding and did an excellent job with all aspects. We brought our own wine and the corkage fee was very reasonable ($10). The food was by far, the shining point of the evening. Mr. Jensen's Foie Gras was among the best I have ever tasted, especially with a well aged Sauterne to pair with it. We loved the lemon sorbet that followed and then the main courses, Dover Sole and Muro Bass were prepared to perfection and arrived so beautifully plated. The Maker's Mark Chocolate Souffle was amazing and finished our romantic night with a special message written on the plates in chocolate. DON'T MISS.

Always enjoy our meals there. Food and service are exceptional all the time.
