We are a great neighborhood secret on the south end of town. We offer a variety of fresh fun food from our open display kitchen. We have a hardwood oven for great appetizers and flatbreads.

We are proud recipients of the "Wine Spectators" Award of excellence 27 years in a row.

Between outstanding food and exceptional service, this is our go to restaurant in Anchorage - where else does the owner and chef bring your salad to the table to make sure it meets your expectations? Where multiple staff make sure your water glass is filled, your food is delivered as ordered? That’s Southside Bistro!!!

The service was excellent. The bacon wrapped dates appetizer are a must! Dinner was superb- especially the Halibut cheeks. Dessert was “so so” but we did like the Orange crème-cicl cheese cake! All in all a perfect choice for dinner with Mom for an early Mother’s Day.

We have eaten regularly at Jen's since it opened, and I think the current version is the best it has ever been. This is primarily because of the "reshuffling" Nancy did of the menus. She moved some of the best selling items from the lunch menu to the dinner menu, and the result is a selection I like much better. Now the problem is "Which to choose?" Too many delicious choices. Jens would be proud.

Wife had scallops, I had elk. Both were excellently prepared and presented. Server was excellent. Fairly noisy but this is part of the ambience here. Highly recommended!
