Jen's has maintained it's high quality and innovative menu throughout the years. After Jen's death a couple of years ago, his long time chef took the reins and she has been right on and every dish we had was perfect. Great waiters and always an interesting crowd.

I went to Jen's Restaurant last week for lunch and I really enjoyed it. The atmosphere was very elegant yet inviting. There were 6 of us, I ordered the pepper steak, which was fantastic. Everyone ordered different dishes and we all were very satisfied. Down to the desserts we ordered, I really can't find a bad thing to say about this place! Great for a Date Night.

This a wonderful restaurant with delicious gourmet food cooked to perfection. The only downside is that the prices are out of our league for more frequent dining. As I recall the prices ranged from about $26 to the $40 range for the entrees, plus soups or salads added another about $7. We usually go here for very special occasions.

We were looking for somewhere new to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Friends had recommended Jens. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We both came away full and, in fact, we each took home a doggie bag and were able to enjoy it again for lunch the next day. We will be back.

Once a year we have friends visit us from Europe. They always request dinner at Jens and we thoroughly enjoy our evening there with them. They love the wine selection and the seafood, especially the oysters and scallops. Excellent place for a special evening.

Excellent service. My salmon was perfectly cooked and simply delicious. My partner ordered rockfish, was well seasoned and very good. No complaints about the food or the service.
Strip mall location is not the most inviting from the outside. Inside looks better but still just a strip mall build out. Tables are well set with linen, food is very nicely presented.
Wine list was fairly good, if overpriced. But hey, restaurants have to make money to stay in business, right?
Best food and service in Anchorage.

My younger brother came into town so we wanted some place to eat that was nice but low key. We knew about Campbello's and tried to make reservations there but they were hosting a wine tasting party that was using the entire restaurant so I asked the gentleman who answered the phone if he could recommend another place just like his place. He told me that he not only worked there but at Jen's as well and that both were good. We'll I have to disagree with his opinion. I believe they are bot super not just good. We ate outside and had an awesome time. The food was delicious and cooked just right and out waitress was such a sweetheart. We had her laughing and she was able to comeback and get us laughing as well. It was a beautiful time had by all. We will for sure return many times.

The restaurant is an oasis in a strip mall. Inviting, elegant atmosphere. Good variety of dishes on the menu. Food quality above average. Bread is weak. Prefer cold hard butter vs. soft.
Presentation on the plate could be better.

I've been going to Jens' for years and the food has always been very good. This was the first time that I've been disappointed. I know Jens' is under new ownership, so that doesn't give me hope that things will get better. The food was very bland and it tastes like they are starting to cut cost. For example, I ordered the veal meatballs and it had more filler than meat. I won't go back, its too expensive for poor quality food.

Jen's is always a joy to dine. It's food is creative, well prepared while reflecting Alaska food preference. The staff are warm professionals. I feel a sense of reprieve from daily hustle. It reflects on the faces of friends I see at tables nearby. Make reservations as it is popular.
