When you step into the charismatic atmosphere of Jens', you are not merely going to have terrific food, but a memorable experience.
The staff, the art, the music, the wine and food are an all encompassing package of delights meant to suit the diners needs. Try this restaurant once and you will find yourself planning to go back when you are departing.
I have been to every conceivable fine dining establishment in the Anchorage area and must say that Jens' is number 1 on my list of places to eat when I visit.
The ambiance and service were outstanding. It's small, cozy, and romantic. No massive crowds and you won't feel rushed in and out. The food is gourmet, tasty, and yes, it's expensive (but worth it). This is one of my favorite upscale restaurants in town. And it's fun to see the owner/chef (Jens) make the rounds as he checks in with customers, makes small talk, and ensures that people are satisfied. Like the small town friendly feel versus a large franchise type place.
Terrific place for lunch or dinner. Astounding wine list. Small, intimate dining rooms, small wine bar, and the Jen will come over and greet you at your table, tell a joke, and probably remember your name the next time you come. And that is highly possible, unless you forget to order food! Incredible fish dishes. Not inexpensive, but a good value for the caliber of food served.
The Danish owners of this world class restaurant in Midtown Anchorage are gracious hosts that have created a warm atmosphere to serve meals prepared with love and the freshest ingredients avaiable. Jens Hansen has often been called the finest chef in Alaska. The troll-caught salmon is cooked on and alder plank and the halibut is often served with a buerre blanc. Many of the sauces are classic--derived from Larousse Gastronomique and others are unique and truly enlightened. Don't miss the calamari appetizer or the fresh oysters-farm raised in pristine Alaska waters. Jens' Restaurant is a dining experience not to miss while visiting Alaska.
