mmm... so VERY delicious and tables have dampeners under the cloth. Even got my man into a button shirt w tie. Full house yet quiet enough to converse. Wait staff was humorous and conversational; willing to ask chefs.

Jens' FLUNKED the gluten free test on a dish SO EASY to make gluten free ! Alaskan fish chowder! agghh... almost cliff jumped. Creole shrimp on the cheddar grits was NOT GF... denied AGAIN... 2nd hit!!! But Chef took care of me w tomatoe saused shrimp... so the chefs DO know the basics!

All thickeners can EASILY be gluten free... read up! I've even taught myself to bake GF. ALL soups, sauces can be GF. Breads are much more difficult to make tasty GF so I do not expect it.

Nancy is doing a wonderful job of carrying on Jens' vision of fine dining in a pleasant atmosphere. Nobody surpasses her cod and rockfish preparations, and her carrot cake is a thing of wonder. The staff are all friendly professionals. Highly recommend.

Everything was great! Started with Calamari and it was amazing. Everyone enjoyed their main course and it had a great ambiance. Quiet enough so we could really enjoy the table conversation. I highly recommend.

The food was very tasty if not a little overpriced. The service wasn’t bad but a bit slow. It was nice to have so many celebrations there that night (2 birthdays & 1 Anniversary).

Jens created the perfect environment for a really special evening with friends! The planned menu for New Year's Eve was amazing!

Have been eating at Jens since 1989
Went on the 30th because we thought New Year’s Eve would be too busy
Our order wasn’t taken for 30 minutes after we arrived. The appetizers came out pretty fast and before we were even half finished the main courses were in front of us. We felt like we had not been able to enjoy our appetizers or the mains would be cold. Very disappointed our server did not try to right the situation. It will be awhile until we go back

Jens is a great destination for a wonderful holiday lunch. The service was outstanding, as usual. Our food was very good. I ordered the lunch special which was a value and extraordinary!

A group of us attended the seasonal Danish Christmas Dinner prix fixe offering at Jen's to usher in the Holidays. Jen's never disappoints those of us who are avowed "foodies!" Excellent dinner, superbly prepared with a wide range of perfectly matched flavors in a three course dinner. I say the wine list is "notable" not so much for the depth and variety available, but for the ability to pair excellent wine with the type of cuisine offered at this outstanding restaurant. Always a very positive dinning experience. Based on a previous recommendation I made, members of our group have returned to Jen's three times for the same dinner offering (not the Christmas fare -- which is limited based on the season) and remarked that rarely does one dine out in which every bite is accompanied by a sigh of appreciation and a silently articulated "yumm!" with each taste!

I love this restaurant, the food was amazing, service good. Just a little bite of wait for it, but honestly is worth the waiting.
Is a quiet place where you can have a nice dinner without noise.
