Ernie's is a great restaurant, located in the heart of the central valley. The combination of fresh ingredients and a highly skilled kitchen, make for some of the best food in all the valley. Their Filet Mignon is comparable to other fine dining locations in Napa, and the San Francisco Bay Area. I would also recommend the Ribeye. If you get either of these steaks, I would recommend their bourbon mushroom sauce.
I would recommend this place if you are in the neighborhood and would like a meal that will not disappoint.
Annual Valentine’s dinner with another couple. This is our third year coming to Ernie’s
The food is good not great; the service was extremely slow, disorganized, and simply lacking. The manager was helpful but the evening was ruined by then.
This was our first time at Ernie’s. The service was outstanding from the moment we stepped in the door to the time we left. The food was delicious and our steaks cooked to our liking. We have been to several top notch steakhouses and restaurants so we were pleased with Ernie’s.
portions for the main course was quite satisfying, cooked to perfection. Very tasty. Our Valentine's Day experience, though expensive, was worth it. the only thing we all felt (party of 4) , and remarked on ,to each other, was that we hardly lifted our forks off the plates for the last bite of each of the 5 courses, when someone appeared to hurriedly take away the plates, giving us the feeling that they wanted us to be done and out. I think a brief"May I take your plates?" would be a nicer approach. I definitely do want to go back and try their regular menu and see if the food is as good as on this special occasion. For such a nice restaurant, the noise level was very high, in the area in which we were seated, almost like you are in a school auditorium, though the room was small. They need some sound-absorbing surfaces. The chef made his very quick and perfunctory pass-by greeting, like a mailman dropping off letters,moving just as quickly as when our plates were removed.
Food was top notch. Service suffered as I think they were understaffed. 2 1/2 hrs is ok for dinner if it's initiated by the client.
The chef is amazing and the food was delicious. The Server was delightful.
Wonderful atmosphere and great food
The menu was so expensive for the quality of food that was served.
A bit expensive but worth every penny. Service was excellent food was excellent small appetizer portions but very delicious
Very friendly service and very good food.
An excellent wine list.
The food and service were good. It is a great restaurant considering there is not another fine dining place on the area. I would definitely return.
Delicious!! I had the halibut special with Brussels sprout bacon risotto and the seasonal veggies-yum! Excellent service! Can’t wait until we come back....
For the first time in many dinners at Ernie’s I received both bad food and poor service. The four gras first course was obviously precooked and then not brought back to serving temp. The halibut was severely over cooked. Our wait person quick dropped off plates and said he would be right back to see how things were. He didn’t return for thirty minutes. The manager walked by at the end of the meal and without actually stopping looked at us and asked “So how were you dinners, good?” And then just kept walking.
My go to place for food, service and atmosphere. Best place in Valley by far.
