Small intimate setting with a quiet elegance. Service is perfect. Food is great other than the elk that was over peppered. Strong recommendation for the romantic dinner

The setting is a little shopworn but the food is simply spectacular. This chef’s food makes dining an experience. The best meal I’ve had in years, and I travel and eat out at 5-star restaurants a lot. We had a very noisy 6-top next to us in a small and close room but we didn’t care. The Friday night tasting menu with wine pairings is a value. The Buffalo was out of this world.

We go for birthdays and anniversaries every year. Our favorite night to go is Friday, when they have the Tasting menu with paired wines for each of the courses!

We had a party of 8 so they seated us in a private room which was perfect as this was a business dinner and there was multiple conversations going on. The service was great and food delicious and presented nicely. The wait staff went out of their way to make sure everyone was happy!

We were celebrating my husbands 71st birthday and the people at Erling’s could not have made the experience any better. We ordered from the Sunday night special menu and the serving portion was more food than we needed and everything was cooked to perfection.

This was our first time to dine at at Erling Jensen, but it won't be our last! I surprised my husband with a meal there after he received a promotion at work. Everything was perfect: our server, Rachel, was outstanding, the food was delicious, the atmosphere was cozy and romantic, and the chef even wrote "congratulations" in chocolate on my husband's dessert plate. From A to Z, this was a wonderful experience and one that we won't soon forget. Thank you, Erling Jensen!

Our server forgot all about us. After she served our appetizers, she never came back. After we waited almost an hour, the host came to our table and asked if everything was to our liking. I told him we’d like to order entrees, and he left, presumably to find our server. She still didn’t come back. He circled around a bit later and I asked for the check. Guess who brought us our check only a few minutes later? Our server. I have no idea what happened, but I’ll never go back.

I have lived in Memphis for 18 years and I can with all authenticity say this is my favorite restaurant because it has the best food. I went there 2 days ago for my birthday and I am still reeling from the dinning experience. I have dreamed of their chocolate souffle for the past two nights and now I will never be able to eat scallops anywhere else in Memphis. The service is exceptional as the staff is so attentive to detail. Everything about this dinning experience is magnificent and I cannot wait to go back.

We've visited Erling Jensen many times and we've never been disappointed. The Friday Wine dinner is quite a delicious and enjoyable experience. Chef always prepares something new and creative and perfectly pairs each course with a delicious wine. If the Opera Cake is on the menu...run don't walk. You better get before I do. :-)
