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!

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.

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.

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.
