Erling Jensen The Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

We like this place so much that we went out of our way, coming back to Maryland from a trip out west, to stop here specifically to have another fabulous meal. It did not disappoint. The sweet bread and foie gras appetizers were simply out of this world, and my salmon risotto was amazingly complex, every morsel a reward. Chef came out twice to check on us which was most appreciated. Everything about the food is perfect. It was a busy Saturday night and we were not quite in the first seating, leading to a little bit of hiccups in the service, nothing major, and we would still plan to come back a third time on our next trip through Memphis. You should, too, if it's all about the food.

Had an absolutely great meal, Buffalo Ribeye special was killer! The halibut special was not too bad as well, actually, it was also excellent! Our server Paden was on top of her game, could not ask for a better server/spokesperson for this restaurant. If you want upscale food and drinks, this IS YOUR PLACE.

We tried this restaurant as it was billed as one of the top (fit for foodies) list. We tried the Sweetbreads appetizer unfortunately one was bad. It had a bad smell on the plate. The restaurant was kind enough to take off the bill but at this level is should not have made it to the plate. Entrees were very good. The Dover Sole meuniere was wonderful! Server had quite a few tables and was really hustling. Didn't like the small rooms as the restaurant was crowded. Wish we had a better experience to report! If in town again I may give it another shot.

We had the Dover Sole Meuniere and the Salmon dish. Both were well prepared with a very attractive presentation. There was a very tasty amuse bouche and a refreshing sorbet between courses. The bread was warm, of a couple of different types and quite fresh and hearty. The peach strudel was not flaky as with an apple strudel--but maybe it was not intended to be so. Overall a very good meal!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Memphis. We particularly appreciate the "Sundays Are Special" menu, a prix fixe menu at a very attractive price available at dinner on Sundays. The quality of ingredients is superior and the dishes are very varied and creative.

We came for my aunt's 85th birthday. She absolutely loved the food, the atmosphere, and Erling came over and greeted her before and after dinner. She didn't think she wanted dessert, but they brought out freshly baked chocolate chip cookies on a plate with a candle and Happy Birthday beautifully written in chocolate. Wonderful evening!

We were seated in the little side room and while there were only 12 other people in the room, the other people were not aware that their voices carried inside that room. I could hear and understand everything that was being said at the table at the opposite side of the room. I think this is prevalent in most public places as people forget they are not at home. Poor manners as far as I am concerned.

This was our first Friday Wine Dinner. The choices were excellent, the wine pairings were delicious. Erling Jensen's has become a very affordable choice for gourmet dining, now that they offer a 3 course dinner every Sunday for $38 ( NO corkage fee on the first Sunday of the month!) This is my new favorite restaurant. :)

Four of us were there for my in-laws 63rd wedding anniversary. He is blind and she does not get around great. The staff was so considerate and accommodating. The chef came out to greet them, which made them feel so special. The waitress, Sadonca (not sure how to spell) was fabulous and so attentive. The food was absolutely mouth watering. My first visit there and will def be back.

I have never, ever had a bad experience at Erling Jensen. From the moment you enter until the moment you leave the service is impeccable. The food is outstanding! Erling practically lives at the restaurant ensuring everything is perfect. One of my favorite restaurants in Memphis!

The service that was provided began incredible - starting at the parking lot with the level of professionalism and sincerity that the security had. When inside, our server was very attentive and sincere, as well as the server assistants. The food was absolutely phenomenal, it's definitely a place I will be going to again. The night was topped off when the head chef came out into the dining room and checked on every single table with actual care and concern. What an amazing restaurant!

My wife and I were in Memphis for a special occasion and decided to try this restaurant. Everything was excellent. Crawfish Bisque, scallops, halibut, soufflé - delicious. Service was the best we have had in a long time. We hope to return soon.

Dining at EJ is more than just going out for dinner; it is an event. Presentation, flavors, serving size-always perfect! I very much appreciate the Sunday 3 course, set price dinners, these offer quite a few choices and are always something to look forward to. We always ask to be seated in Scott's section. He is professional, knowledgeable, and always fun.
