This used to be my FAVORITE restaurant but we had not been there in the past year. Boy, has it gone down hill. We had invited a business friend to dine with us and I was quite embarrassed on the food and dessert. I had read a bad review but thought that the chef had taken a day off, he... More

I traveled to Memphis with my two daughters (sophisticated world travelers all) to celebrate my little brother's 50th birthday. Brother made the reservation and we were the first guests in the door - greeted by chef, sommelier and hostess as one. We were seated in the front left dining room and the first sign of good things to come was... More

I found this restaurant on the "top 10" romantic restaurants in Memphis. I agree with the list. This is an excellent choice for a romantic dinner. Food was excellent! Service was top notch!

From the moment we walked in we were treated as welcome guests at a fine dining restaurant. Menu items and specials were explained with knowledge and care. Every dish included a beautiful presentation and preparation. (Very fresh food with a variety of options.) While Erling Jensens is not a vegan restaurant we had a vegan guest with us and every...

We are from Chicago, so good food is not hard to find. On our last trip to Memphis we had several dinners out at the major hot spots. One was way overrated, I mean way overrated. Erlings however was not the case. We walked in and was greeted by the chef. Seemed odd but later found out he now ensures... More

Our dinner experience at Erling Jensen was exceptional. It is very expensive but very good. The steaks outdo Flemings/Ruth Chris by far. The John Dory fish was excellent. If you are a light eater you could split a entree with another. The crab cake appetizer is big enough for a meal-they were very good.

We recently went for the first time with a large group of business associates. As a native Memphian , I was looking forward to my first visit. We felt unwelcome by the staff from the doorman to the hostess to the waiter. I have worked in many restaurants over the years and this staff was rough around the edges and... More

I was looking for a great place to take a client to dinner in Memphis and my friend (who lives in Memphis) suggested Erling Jensen's. Do not be put off by the relatively modest exterior and location. The ambiance inside is fantastic - as is the service and the food. We were told to ask for Too Tall as our... More

My wife and I visited the restaurant for our anniversary. We found the staff to be very knowledgeable and helpful. Erling Jensen came out to the dinning area several times to chat with each person. I was very impressed with the food, wine, and atmosphere.
