Tender asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, and artichoke hearts with sun dried tomatoes, chopped egg and balsamic vinaigrette
Server was inattentive. Never introduced himself. We even had to ask for bread to be served during the main entree. I’ve been to Jens many times it was wonderful. This experience ruined my special date and I will not be going back.
Four of us were seated in a socially distanced corner of the restaurant within minutes of our arrival and provided warm sourdough bread and Butter along with chilled water. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable concerning menu offerings. Appetizers and food were prepared in a timely manner and exceeded our expectations for quality and freshness. We will return soon.
We had the Halbut and my wife had the scallops. They were both wonderful with fantastic sauces. Would highly recommend Jen’s.
Jens' never disappoints. My favorite restaurant in Anchorage.
The food was way too overpriced for how basic it was
We sat outside due to Covid restrictions, 4 of us in a small tent, at our request. One propane heater helped, a 2nd would have helped more, as the temp was about 40*. Lighting was good. Thus, my low rating for "ambiance"!!
Cassoulet was very tasty with pheasant breast and rabbit sausage
Never disappoints!! The food is outstanding and the service impeccable. I had an amazing birthday celebration. The extra touches of birthday photos and birthday music are so appreciated. Thank you:). Looking forward to our next visit.
Lovely 61st birthday party for my dear friend. Food and service were fantastic! Thank you for making the evening so special.
The ambiance was nice. The waiter was attentive and friendly. Will eat here again.
We love their veal liver and Danish meatballs. Sides are
cooked just right
The food, service, and setting were great. We sat in the bar area so got a bit of traffic for noise but that was our choice.
I made reservations for a friend’s bday, but, Due to the social distancing regulations I wasn’t able to initially get one table to seat everyone (7 of us). Patrick Kept me informed throughout the days leading up the reservation to advise of me what options I would have. On the day of, he told me that they would give us the private room for our party (of now 8), that way, we would have the space for all of us and we could all be seated at the same table! I was elated! And it was at no charge!
Fast forward to dinner, our server (whose name I forgot, but we call him Hugh - he looked like Hugh Grant with his mask on) was phenomenal! He was very patient and very attentive. He gave us very good recommendations for wines and his delivery was impeccable! He made our dining experience one to remember and because of him, Jen’s will definitely be getting our patronage again ;)
The food was wonderful! Several of us went in for the rockfish, others had the salmon and the steak! No complaints! The mushroom sauce with the rockfish Complimented each other well. After dinner we each ordered different desserts. The server set it around the table so we could grab and pass clockwise to the others. That way we all tried each other’s desserts. By the way, that chocolate mousse (coffee and rum) was my fave!
Our server asked if the four of us were out celebrating so we told him, 35 for us and 30 for the other couple. Surprised, he takes a photo of each couple then presents us with delightful card with our photos and of course Jen’s beautiful smile and rose on the front of the card. We miss him.
Great celebration, wonderful meal and fantastic time with our best friends at Jen’s!
Kimberly was our server and she was fabulous! Very attentive.
Food and service are always exceptional.
Great food and with all the dining restrictions they do a great job.
Birthday dinner. Was
Good. Been there many birthdays. First time not mentioned and a dessert offered.
Awesome food and service! Highly recommend!
Food and service always top notch and fabulous.
Great food and great service.
It is always a pleasure to dine at Jens.
Amazing service, amazing food!
All aspects of the dinning experience were outstanding.
On vacation and chose this restaurant based on existing reviews. The dishes we selected exceeded our expectations due to the generous and lovely presentations. We ordered the charcuterie to share as a 1st course and devoured it. Also ordered 4 Alaskan oysters which were medium sized and creamy. For the main courses the pork chop was large with nicely prepared sides and the halibut was excellent. Needing a gluten and dairy free dessert we selected the berry dessert which was a tasty and light finish to the meal. The outside venue consists of nicely decorated tents, outdoor carpets and candles suspended from the ceiling along with table cloths and better glasses, utensils, and dishes. The server was very good as was all the staff we interfaced with.
Delicious dinner, kid friendly. Amazing entrees.
Jens Restaurant offers fine wines, seafood, and classic European cuisine.
Diners are never rushed.
Normally, I would give the ambiance five stars. However, due to COVID mandates, Chef/owner Nancy Alip set up two three sided great tents with large screen windows in the parking lot to comply with regs. Bon Appetit!
With the COVID-19 restrictions in place they do a great job with seating outdoors under the tent. Even though this are a lot different the service and food remain first class.
Nice spacing and great meal
Excellent service, sustainable seafood and cuisine and attention to detail. Waiter was knowledgeable of wines as well as selections.
They have made outdoor dining very pleasant given they had to pull this together so quickly. Our food was delicious and our server very kind and professional.
Great experience all around! Full wine list, menu and kids options. Service was wonderful (a tad slow) but staff kept water and wine glasses full, and made sure we had everything we needed.
I ordered the Halibut, who he as impeccable and my daughter had pasta and loved the sauce! Would recommend come here and may even stop by again before we leave town!
Outstanding food, as always The outdoor seating area is superb. As long as the weather allows for outdoor eating (and they have some of it under tents with widows for ventilation) is possible due to weather we will go back often.
Everything we ordered was delicious and prepared perfectly. Would highly recommend to anyone and will be going back next time we are in Anchorage.
Sitting outside in the sun was a pleasant experience and one I will endeavor to repeat. Food always good, staff top tier Love them all!
Amazing service and delicious food!
Jens' never disappoints. Always great quality, value and service. The oysters are out of this world.
A most wonderful night. Food was great! Outside seating was so appreciated in these Covid-19 times. Will be back with Otto. Soon.
Love sitting outside for lunch on sunny days! Food is always the best.😎
Fantastic service and the food was excellent.
This will become a regular visit for us !!
Excellent wait staff, superb food and welcoming surroundings! It is such a pleasure to dine in at your restaurant! Thank you for your concern for our safety, as well as for providing top notch dining in Anchorage.
