We love dining at Erling's. The setting is so intimate and usually pretty quiet. This visit was a little louder than normal but the food was excellent as always. The service was a tad bit slower than our preference but we were with good friends so it wasn't a big deal. The halibut was cooked perfectly and the filet was heavenly. My husband also enjoyed the orange tomato soup special.

Our favorite restaurant. The food is outstanding. I had the buffalo steak which was cooked to perfection. My husband had the sea scallops which were perfect. We both had the grilled romaine salad, yum. I had the peach crepe and he had creme brûlée . Our server was Shannon who treats you like family. Try the Asian Pear Martini, you won't be sorry.
From the time you arrive until you leave, everyone is so nice and professional.
Try this restaurant ........you won't be disappointed.

First Visit. Staff was very welcoming. The personal attention from Mr. Jensen was not expected, but very notable. The fish was moist and flaky. The sauce that Mr. Jensen poured over the fish made the fish taste really good. The okra mixed in with the greens was served at the crispness that I like. Very enjoyable dining experience. Thank you!

We always have an excellent experience at Erling Jensen. I called to let them know we were coming for my wife's birthday and when we arrived everyone from the host, the server and Erling greeted her by name and wished her a happy birthday. The food was awesome, as always. We had the crab cakes and filet which was cooked to perfection. Thanks, Erling for another great dining experience.

My husband and I LOVED Erling Jensen's! I opted to dine from the alacart menu (the Dover sole) while my husband chose from the chef's nightly meal/wine pairings. We enjoyed everything about the meal and will definitely dine there again in the near future.

Let me start off by saying Rachel went far above and beyond any expectations we had. The atmosphere of the restaurant was fantastic and the in between treats were a wonderful touch. I felt my food was very good, but my partner felt their main dish(Salmon Sunday Special) fell a little short. I would recommend this place to any of my friends looking for a great place for a date or special occasion and would recommend they all see Rachel to be their server. Thanks for the wonderful experience and we look forward to visiting again.

Erling Jensen is our favorite special occasion place to dine. This was the first time we had the Sunday Night Three Course Dinner. Can you say absolutely amazing and what an incredibly great price? There were several options to choose from for each course and each was so delicious. I now have a favorite Sunday night spot for a romantic dinner with my husband or a celebration with family. It was perfect!!!!!

Erling Jensen’s never disappoints. Ever. Their attention to detail and culinary expertise is rare no matter where you’re from or what type of food you like. They are very accommodating to gluten allergies or any other special requests. It is my go to restaurant. Single or married, if you don’t get lucky after taking your special someone here then you may want to rethink your relationship 😊

We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our 30th anniversary at Erling Jensen's! The food was perfect in every way, and the service was impeccable. If I could have changed anything, I would have enjoyed being seated at a more intimate table. Next time, I will be remember to ask.
