EJ is one of our favorite places to eat. The ambiance is so peaceful and relaxing. A perfect place to bring friends. "Too Tall" was our server and he took great care of us. Can't wait for next time.

My husband surprised me with an anniversary dinner here. I wish our budget could afford dining her more often. The food was delightful and the presentation superb. Service was impeccable. Whether it is a special occasion or just a desire to eat fine food, you can't miss with this restaurant.

This restaurant never disappoints. We had the Sunday special of several courses, plus the wonderful extras they provide (like the cervice,) please. Our server was so much more than you would ever expect. They cater to you completely and somehow I totally love that. Truly, go here, you will be so glad that you did. This is my favorite restaurant... More

We celebrated our 5 year anniversary at Erling Jensen. It was our first visit and it certainly won't be our last! Food was excellent, service was superb and the atmosphere is cozy. Too Tall was our waiter, and he was simply the best! We'll be back next month to bring our family for our holiday dinner!

We stopped in for a Friday night happy hour for some drinks and food. The place is a nice setting but in a very short time it was clear it was a local frequent patron only in order to get any type of service. ( we sat at the bar ). Our bartender was very preoccupied doing anything but greeting... More

Great place for dinner. Not cheap but worth it for upscale place. Only $10 corkage fee of U bring a special wine. Don't know why it is not listed in top 5 of Memphis

Best dinner in Memphis. Love eating here and wish I could afford to eat here more often. It is a true luxury. I always look for dinner specials or bar deals via Jensen's social media. As a teacher, I love that this restaurant is very grownup, as I am in need of "adult time" after teaching little kids all day.... More

Last time we visited Erling's was 4 years ago, so we were quite anxious to see what had happened since last time. We had the multicourse prix fixe with wine pairings. The food was delicious and the wine was excellent. We did think that it was unnecessary to have 3 courses with pasta (the 3 middle courses). The sauces were... More
