Erling Jensen The Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
In my opinion the best restaurant/food in Memphis. We had the elk and the buffalo - both were outstanding. Our waiter was fantastic! The only negative was the noise as we were seated next to a large loud table - but that wasn't the restaurants fault. If your thinking about going - just go - you won't regret it!
There is a reason this place is voted one of the top 2 or 3 restaurants in Memphis year after year. The food offerings are always original and well thought out, incredibly scrumptious with portions for customers who like to eat. The service is always spot on. These folks are consistently top shelf and should be on everyone's restaurant bucket list.
Erling Jensen has been in business for 20 years in Memphis. In the restaurant world, making it 20 years is quite a feat. The reason he has succeeded is simple - quality food, beautifully presented and served with care. Still our favorite after all these years!
I was unaware that they had a set, limited menu for Valentine's Day, and was rather disappointed with the selection. The food tasted as though it had been prepared in advance and was served lukewarm and soggy. The selection was extremely limited and the food was mediocre. For an $85 dinner per person, my expectations were pretty high and the food didn't deliver.
Erling's never disappoints. The service is outstanding and the food is very good. I have a gluten intolerance and they go out of their way to accommodate me without making me feel like it's a bother. The chef is very friendly and frequently walks through the restaurant and greets diners. It's our favorite restaurant in Memphis.
The food was above average, but for the price it was a let down. In my opinion, it costs double of what it's worth. I've been to restaurants with much better food and it didn't cost this much. If you are looking for a restaurant that is focused on the quality of its food then I would look elsewhere.
Initially was seated in the Bar Area that was like sitting in a library where everyone could hear what each other was saying. We asked to be seated somewhere else which the staff was very accommodating to our request. Shannon the server and the food was great. It was a combination birthday-valentines dinner for my wife.
Always excellent food and service here. My wife tried the wine paired 5 course meal and it was great with excellent wines. My filet was perfect. Service is first rate from the host to the wait staff to the valet parking. There are even extras served (We had a crab salsa on cracker to begin, and a small scoop of sherbet before our entrees to cleanse the pallet).
We have always had a wonderful dining experience at this restaurant. The staff is extremely attentive from the moment that you drive up until you have exited the property. The food is second to none. Being greeted by Mr. Jensen truly adds to our overall experience. I have and will continue to recommend this restaurant as the restaurant to visit while in the Memphis area. Truly a "Jewel"!
Scott, the waiter was a bit pretentious suggesting how lucky we were that he got our order in in front of a larger group. Just unnecessary... But as always such a wonderful place to have an amazing meal. Love the Sunday dinner package, just perfect amount of food.
As compared to other restaurants Erling Jenson is on the pricier side but it comes with excellent value. The service is amazing. The food is some of the best (and I'm comparing to restaurants in cities like New York). It has great atmosphere and great food, wine and dessert choices.
I cannot say enough about the service, food, and overall experience at Erling Jensen. This was our first time, and we will be returning. We were celebrating a birthday, and they were extremely accommodating for the special occasion. The food was cooked perfectly. Our waitress was extremely helpful making suggestions. We highly recommend the crab cakes as an appetizer and the soufflé or apple strudel for dessert. That being said, I'm convinced you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. No details have been overlooked here. Thank you for an absolutely top notch experience!
The cocktails, food (bison ribeye, sea bass), and wine were all outstanding. The service was above and beyond. Erling came by our table twice. When our leftovers were misplaced, the kitchen prepared another full meal for us to take home. They made our anniversary special and we will be returning often.
