This is our favorite restaurant in Anchorage. Great food, fantastic service. We went there for our 20-th wedding anniversary. They made it a very special evening for us.
Amazing food, attentive service and never a feeling of being rushed through the meal.
My favorite place to eat in Anchorage. Great place for date night or just because! The food and service are always excellent! The outside eating area is perfect for our long summer nights.
Pleasant atmosphere even though in a strip mall, gracious service and reasonable menu and prices for Alaska. Good wine list.
Good food and excellent service. One guest brought her kid unexpectedly, but the kid was the one who loved the restaurant most.
We celebrated our Anniversary. Upon arrival we were seated promptly, our table was decorated with hearts.
This gesture added a nice touch to our already wonderful evening. Excellent food and excellent service. Our server has super great sense of humor.
The picture of us celebrating also complimented our experience.
What a gem. And...in a strip mall. Such fabulous fresh fish! Great wines. G0!!!
Excellent meal including the wine.
We were traveling to Alaska for a cruise and met up with old friends. The restaurants in Anchorage were booked for a party of 6 so I checked Open Table and found Jens’!! It was excellent! From the hostess to our waiter to meeting Jen herself, everything was wonderful! Our fish was perfectly cooked and so yummy!! Highly recommend the short ride away from Anchorage to an excellent restaurant!
Great restaurant, service and the food is delicious!
Wonderful, relaxed environment, great food,outstanding service.
Friends from Sitka in town. Disappointed.
Took my husband here for his birthday. It was the first time for both, and we were pleasantly surprised. We had never heard of Jens’ but it appeared on OpenTable as an alternative to another restaurant we tried to book. We are so happy we found Jens’, we will most definitely be back. The service was great, and the food was outstanding. They even blasted “they say it’s your birthday” by the Beatles during or dessert and brought over a sparkler and took a picture. Everyone in the restaurant (patrons included) clapped. We left with a card and a photo as a memory of the evening. Best time ever!!! Thank you!
Phenomenal quality, flavor, and service. One of the very few "pricy" restaurants where I feel like I got my money's worth.
Had a very nice time. The customer service was excellent.
My husband and I recently had dinner here on our way through town and were very pleased with our experience. Our waiter provided us with great table service and was helpful in getting some wine pairing recommendations from the chef. Our dishes were well-executed, and the portions were just right. We will definitely be back the next time we're in Anchorage.
Excellent service and great food
We just returned to Alaska from snow birding in New Zealand and were going to see Cabaret at the PAC.
Special night at our favorite restaurant with our special friends!
We come here for the amazing food and quiet grown-up ambiance. The food and service are always impeccable, and great for grown-ups not have to shout at each other to be heard. Highly recommend-and they go over-the-top for birthdays, too! We've also hosted large events for special luncheons in their back room.
We enjoyed a lovely dinner at Jen's!
The service was fantastic too.
Our dinner and evening were fantastic! We sat for 3 and one hour hours! We were never rushed, allowed to visit over a half hour before orders were taken. I LOVE Jens because I can HEAR... NO dominant music and diners are not shouting at one another to be heard. The food is excellent! Best fish in town and we have lived here for 33 years and I know what I am talking about. No one can match their Danish offerings.
Unquestionably a 5-star restaurant. And I have eaten at French Laundry!
Always great. Good food. Excellent service and ambience. Quiet enough. Reasonable prices.
Our dinner was an absolutely delightful experience. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. We arrived to anniversary greetings from our waitress along with fresh roses and hearts on the table. Service was outstanding; our waitress was kind and gracious. The steaks were superb and perfectly prepared. Sparklers on our desert plus a photo of our evening to take home was such a surprise. Our waitress made a special effort to make our evening memorable. We can't remember a restaurant or staff ever trying to make an evening so perfect and memorable from start to finish. We will definitely return and recommend Jens to others who are looking for a lovely restaurant to celebrate a special event. Thanks for a wonderful evening!
Food and service was very good. The noise level was a little higher than I would have hoped because the restaurant is a popular place for lunch.
excellent in all sense of the worth, the calamari one of our favorites, worth go there just to eat them.
Excellent food, wine, and service.
Being a longtime Anchorage resident I am surprised I hadn't been to this gem before last Friday! It just doesn't come up when visitors come to town as "the" place to go. Most want the "downtown" experience with the view and the "Alaskan" feel. Though, I have recommended Jen's to several folks over the years, having always heard it was fabulous, and they have all thanked me for sending them there, I just never found an opportunity to go. Now I know for myself this restaurant is outstanding! Definitely an exquisite fine dining experience! I will be returning regularly! Top notch indeed!
Jens is consistently an excellent choice. The meatballs are wonderful. The service is very good and responsive. Good place for special events and birthdays.
We had not been to Jen's in a long time and decided to dine on a Friday night. It was a wonderful experience. the food was beautiful to look at when it came to the table and the flavors were wonderful. Great wine list, by the glass or bottle. If you've not been in a while, go!
I have always enjoyed my meals at Jen's - both for business lunches and personal dinners.
The menu reflects the freshest ingredients of the season and the staff are always willing to customize to accommodate your desires. Every time I have eaten here I have asked for a slight modification to a listed menu item, and they have always delivered it to my table as requested!
Considering the quality of the food and the cozy atmosphere, it really doesn't cost that much more to have a fine dining experience vs a national chain.
Our group enjoyed excellent service, a nice selection of wines, and delicious appetizers. Since this was for book club, we asked for a table with little distraction and we were accommodated graciously. Definitely coming back!
A-MAZING! How did we not know about this gem until now???
Jen's is always a great dining experience. One of our favorite go to spots.
Nice enough place, but the food is decidedly average for the price.
Excellent service and food as usual for over 20 years.
Out standing great food out standing service. Would do it it again we go at least 5 or6 times a year
Been going there since it opened. One of the few classier places.
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.
Good service, good food, great atmosphere
Food was delicious, had the king salmon, was perfectly prepared.
