“Jens is expensive, exotic”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Food at Jens is superb, although the menu is a bit eclectic; it's possible that some people may not find anything on the menu to their liking. Small room means it is not private; quite loud. But that is part of the fun at Jens.

“Very trendy and overly expensive”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

My experience is this restaurant has a very arrogant and expensive attitude. Pushy with alcoholic drinks.

“Not Danish, but well worth it!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Recommended by a colleague, this restaurant did not disappoint. Great quality ingredients, fantastic, attentive service and good ambience meant an overall enjoyable experience. OK it is in a strip mall, not downtown, but compared to the "fashionable" restaurant we were in the previous night, Jens blew them away. If you like fresh seafood or perfectly cooked meat (lamb, beef, pork) with no fries in sight, then Jens is the place.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We were hoping for better after reading reviews. We had dined the night before at Marx Bros and had an excellent halibut and good wines. The halibut at Jen's was mediocre and the waiters were the same.

“Nice outdoor seating for summer weather - excellent food and service”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

you can't beat Jens' Restaurant, a true Anchorage Icon - prices are a bit high but quality is well worth every dime. They allow you to bring a favorite wine (if not on their menu) with a $20 fee and no grumble.
