The service at Jens' is great. The staff are knowledgeable about the menu and wine pairings. They offer dishes that you can't get at other restaurants in Anchorage like fois gras and Swedish meatballs.

Nicely decorated in bright colors, we were promptly greeted and seated in a bright cheerful room. Servers were prompt and knowledgeable ... my water glass was never empty. Food was delicious and served hot. Desert was good. For a Wednesday night, the restaurant was full...More

Our lunch at Jens' restaurant was terrific. Admitting that I am a bit biased as I am Danish, but regardless of whether it is the Danish lunch specialties (biksemad or frikadeller) or the fish dishes, the food is outstanding. The service is good and they...More

I like dining at Jen's the first couple of visits. However, this recent luncheon left me wanting. I ordered the seafood chowder for my appetizer and a seafood crepe for my main course. I shouldn't have ordered two creamy dishes in the first place but...More

We had a great time with our reservation; wine and dine place. Don't let the fact that they are tucked away in a strip mall fool you. Excellent Filet Mignon!

The food and service is incredible. Jens is pretty tucked away in a place you would least expect a high end restaurant. The flavors in all of their dishes are amazing. The creme brulee is also made perfectly, which a lot of restaurants in Anchorage...More

People say, in a strip mall? It is but it really does have great food. I go there mostly for lunch. Nice to have white table clothes and napkins with great service, freshly cooked food, this place is a bargain!

This was our last stop before going back to the airport. Bread was warm and tasty and the butter (in a little dish) was easy to spread. We both ordered the scallops. They came on a veggie hash. 4 large Kodiak Scallops seared to perfection....More
