Erling Jensen The Restaurant
Our favorite chef and Restaurant in Memphis! Consistency in preparation and quality is not surpassed in this fair city.
We enjoyed the Friday wine dinner. As always, each course showcases the skill of Chef Jensen and his team. The quality of ingredients and the execution of each detail results in a feast for your senses and palate. Excellent wines paired with each course and great service make for a most enjoyable culinary experience!
The food was amazing. The fish was cooked perfectly. Salad was fresh and delicious and the deserts were fantastic.
Fantastic food--Special Sunday menu--great service, and a secluded table, as requested, so we could visit with our dinner guests. Great experience, as always.
Had Sunday dinner for four and each person was very pleased with the meal. The Sunday fixed price special dinner menu is excellent and offers many options. In addition, you can order from the regular menu. Service was quite attentive and the server recognized our anniversary and birthday celebration. The room was a bit loud, but I think that was due to a table of guests who were having a LOT of fun. Good wine choices. Great restaurant.
The Dover Sole was exquisite but I will order extra Maunier sauce next time. The service was perfect. Our server, Ayana (Russian), was amazing! I can’t believe I just discovered this gem in Memphis. Will be back! 4/5.
The backroom is not a desirable dining location. On this particular evening there was a large and very loud group in this small room which diminishes the fine dining experience. As a frequent customer and fan, this particular evening was disappointing.
The food and service are always impeccable. One of the people in our party dumped a glass of wine on the person across from him, and we have not been banned, as far as I know.
We had a great experience at Erling Jensen. My wife and I were celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary and I wanted it to be special. They did not disappoint. We had an early reservation, so we had a private dining experience for the first hour which was nice. I had the antelope which was prepared perfectly rare. Service was prompt but not rushed. I would definitely return.
The food was very good. But this would not be my first recommendation for a high-end dinner in Memphis. The waitress seemed a bit stressed at times. I gave her a good tip because I honestly felt bad for her. She seemed to be a bit forceful when recommending the “Friday menu”. She also seemed so rushed that she walked away from our table a few times when we were in the middle of asking a question, trying to order something, or making a comment. There are too many excellent places for dinner to spend this money on trying this again. Kudos to the chef though, the food was delicious.
My wife and I just discovered Erling Jensen’s, and what a treasure! We had dinner last night on our way back home from Gulf Shores, Alabama. The food preparation and presentation were outstanding. The fact that the chef and owner, Erling Jensen, stopped by at our table was an added plus. The ambiance was upbeat and lively. And our waitstaff person, Satoko, was attentive without making us feel like she was hovering over us. Thanks, Chef Jensen, for the outstanding experience! We plan on dining here each year on way down to Gulf Shores and back. - Northern Indiana Snowbirds
Another wonderful dinner
Great atmosphere. Awesome food and spectacular dessert. Highly recommend this!
One of the best restaurants in Memphis! I highly recommend Erling Jensen The Restaurant!
As always excellent. Large portions so go hungry!
This incredible restaurant is our go to place for special occasions. The service is incredible and is only surpassed by the food. You can’t make a bad choice here!
The dinner at Erling Jensen was an Anniversary for my wife and I and it truly was special. The ambience was perfect, the service excellent and every dish is a work of art. They have some unique specials and IMO far superior to your typical high end steak restaurant in Memphis. Yes it is expensive, but for a special occasion its absolutely worth it. In my wife's opinion the absolute best Rack of Lamb in town. I had the Elk special and it was superb. Don't let the outside fool you. It's a house that has been tastefully renovated to provide the perfect experience. Yes, they do have steak if you are so inclined. This place has consistently great reviews … one trip and you'll know why. My only complaint is why I waited so long to go there again !
great food and service. Love it every time and would recommend to anyone
Loved it! Waitress was great!
As always, the food and Service was great. One of our favorite places. Erling was in the the house but no visit to our table. Thus the overall 4 stars. Table next to us ordered Antelope. I wish i knew it was available. Otherwise, we were excited about the experience. Weekday with minimal traffic. Thumbs upppp!
Beautiful evening with the best meal and wine in Memphis!
I had the red snapper with sun flower seed risotto! It was excellent!
Love Erling ... Great Chef
As very disappointed in the Valentine’s menu. No where on the website did they indicate that they had a special menu for Valentine’s Day. My date could not eat the soup because of an allergy. So instead of the menu we saw online we were forced to order from a special menu for Valentine’s. Overpriced and under cooked
Excellent professional chief prepared food exe Ellelkent
The food was a joke. It wasn't good and the servers kept bringing the wrong plates to everyone in the room which is a disturbance and annoying.
Non-traditional menu items set this restaurant apart. Buffalo filet, lamb, etc.
Excellent as always.
We eat there at least once a month.
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
Our waitress was very attentive and sweet! We enjoyed our dinner and got excellent service! We will definitely be returning.
Excellent in all regards. This is where you want to come
Amazing in every way!
Erlings is always immensely pleasurable. The food and service is always consistently wonderful. I have been dining there for over 15 years and hope I can for 15 more
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.
Server would be talking and walk away. Didn’t understand this. Forgot to provide steak night with entree.
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.
