Erling Jensen The Restaurant
Beautiful restaurant in a quiet area of Memphis. Food was wonderfully presented and equally as delicious with good sized portions. The oysters are to dream about, perfectly fried and melted in your mouth, they are on the menu as a salad but they are by no means a salad. Great wine list that even has a half bottle selection! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a nice relaxing dinner in a romantic setting, great for a date night or celebration.
Erling Jensen The Restaurant was wonderful in every way. We went for my husband’s birthday and everything was superlative! My husband had mushroom soup that was heavenly—creamy, earthy goodness. His buffalo tenderloin was outstanding and perfectly medium rare. Our waiter, Ken, was knowledgeable and friendly and all the service was excellent. Chef Jensen checked on us more than once and he was keeping track of everything throughout the evening. So nice. It’s a beautiful restaurant, great wine list and delicious food.
As expected, the food and service was top notch. My friends and I were so happy. Not crazy about okra, but it was the best surprise of the night. Thank you Ehrling, it was wonderful to see you and you’ll see us again soon. The wine and dine menu is a terrific idea.
Birthday celebration for a friend who now lives in CA. 3 of us....lobster bisque, spinach salad, fried oysters for appetizers. Crab cakes (2 under appetizers makes an excellent entree), salmon, fish special of the day....each of us were happy with our choice. Shared Grand Marnier for dessert—yummy! Excellent food and outstanding service. Pleased with our evening!
I actually made this reservation for my parents (Father’s Day) and my son (Birthday). Even though I don’t live in Memphis, Erlin Jensen’s is my favorite restaurant, because of his culinary genius with wild game. I knew this would be a hit for the men and it did not disappoint. I was called immediately after their meal and everyone was raving! My father had the elk, my son the antelope, and my mom enjoyed the crab cakes. I can personally attest to the elk and antelope, because they are my go to meals when I eat at Erlin Jensen’s. It is always a safe bet for a celebratory meal. The food is fabulous, the service is spot on, and the atmosphere is pleasant... just know the bill will reflect this, but it’s worth every penny!
Wonderful birthday celebration!
Food was beyond incredible!!!
Our servers were knowledgeable and very prompt.
Erling Jensens is known in Memphis as the best of the best. Fine dining, incredible food, and service that is unmatched. Conveniently located in East Memphis. Erling is TOP NOTCH!!
Had a group of 13, service ,food and facility were tops.
yes excellent food and service
very professional staff
We always enjoy eating at Erling Jensens. The food is always fantastic, the service is superb and the atmosphere elegant. We enjoy being pampered by the entire staff. Cannot say enough about the quality of the food and the portions always leave us feeling full. Its nice to see the Chef making his way to our table. It makes us feel special.
There is not enough good things to say about the quality of food and service at Erling's. Our entrees included antelope (the daily special), red snapper, and beef tenderloin, all of which were cooked to perfection and delicious. Our server was quite knowledgeable and helpful assisting in the selection of our entrees and drinks. Erling's has an excellent wine and liquor selection FYI. This past dinner at Erlings I sipped Weller Antique for dessert.
Cozy and friendly staff and the people who there are also great always meeting someone who say hello.
The food was outstanding and so was the service. Definitely one of the finest restaurants in
The food and service was excellent. Ken was so attentive! Chef EJ and his food staff made our anniversary so special. Thank You!
Delicious from bread to halibut to dessert.
Always a top-notch experience!! We've celebrated several important life events here over the years, and have never been disappointed. :-)
I ordered the Dover sole with crab which I often do. The fish was tasty but the crab was dry and tasted like it might have been warmed over from another time. There was no sauce on it-not even butter sauce. I was very disappointed.
Food is amazing! You must try the buffalo, it was extremely tender and tasted better than you average steak! Was dining there for a business meeting on a Monday night and found it to be louder than I thought it would be. But regardless the service and the meal made up for that!
Another wonderful fine dining experience at Erlings.
It’s always a delightful time.
The crab cakes continue to be the best in Memphis, hands down. Our entire meal was incredible down to the desserts. Thanks again, Erling and always a pleasure to see you!
I enjoyed the antelope tender and full of flavor. I never had to ask for anything from or server. I highly recommend for a nice relaxing flavorful meal.
Can’t beat Erling’s for a great evening out and a wonderful dining experience.
Excellent night for a special birthday! Everything was exceptional!
Birthday. The restaurant was full so it was very loud. Food, service and decor was wonderful.
When we arrived at Erlin Jensen it was just like another restaurant. When I made the reservation, I requested a dark and quiet area. What occurred next was a bit more than what I expected. I found a thin blonde hair on my bread as I was spreading the butter, and I am a brunette with thick hair, therefore, it wasn't mine. When I mentioned it to the waitress she took it to the back and brought another plate. If that weren't enough, they sat a large party behind us, which was a bit loud. Then, I found chocolate caked on to the spoon right before our dessert was brought out. Needless to say, I was not impressed. The food presentation was excellent, but the quality was good nothing great. I've had better and not as costly. What really stood out for us was the dessert, it was AMAZING! I just expected more due to the high cost associated with the restaurant.
We enjoyed the Friday evening Wine Dinner very much. 6 wines and 6 courses ranged from truly exceptional to good. The wines were expertly paired to the food!
Service was impeccable!
Chef Jensen's reputation as a great chef is well deserved.
Great food and service!!
Erling Jensen's is an amazing restaurant and my new favorite in the city of Memphis. The staff is so very kind and professional. The food is original and outstanding. I've never had a better experience dining anywhere and that includes all of my travels across the United States. Erling Jensen is a very kind man and it was a pleasure to meet him and have my first but certainly not last culinary experience with his restaurant.
Wonder anniversary dinner with my wife. This was our second time dining at Erling. Both times were phenomenal.
Just a beautiful place to have dinner. Just a jewel...
We hadn't been to Erling Jensen's in a few years. I was not surprised that the food, ambiance, and service were STILL outstanding.
We celebrated our 50 th anniversary at Erling’s exquisite restaurant where once again we enjoyed a beautifully presented and delicious dinner. The evening was capped with a lovely anniversary message on our desert plate which was the perfect ribbon for our celebration.
Fabulous food and service!
Always a wonderful experience. The noise level, however, can be a bit much depending on the manners of your fellow diners.
We love the three course Sunday night dinner ! The selections are fabulous, the portions are appropriate for multiple courses and the food is perfection! We love the dinners!
We had the most delightful meal for our anniversary celebration! The atmosphere is intimate and private. Good selections of wine by the glass- including some not run of the mill choices- a huge plus in my opinion. The lobster pancake appetizer is huge and more than enough for 2. It is divine. I had the butter lettuce salad. The crispy cambert pieces were the salad highlight! The spinach salad was also amazing. I had red snapper entree. The sunflower seed risotto was such an amazing addition to the entree. Totally unusual and delicious. My husband had the buffalo. It was as good if not better then any beef steak we have ever eaten. Chocolate souffle finished off the meal- it was perfect. We will definitely be back soon.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere, can’t say enough positive about the meal!
It’s hands down one of the top 3 restaurants in Memphis... it’s a favorite of ours and one that we like to go to for a major celebration !
The best in Memphis! The chef takes the time to make a special occasion spectacular. Thank you Earl for making my parents 50th Anniversary dinner a remarkable experience.
The service and food was excellent. The timing of delivery was perfect. The place always has a wonderful atmosphere. Will definitely go back. Was a great place to have a Mother’s Day dinner.
