Dining date: Wed May 8, 2013:
After an unfortunate experience the week prior, we decided to give Ernie's Prime Rib night another chance. This time everything was great! The service was very good (as usual) and the food was right up to the standards we have come to expect. Complimentary bruschetta to start followed by perfectly cooked Prime Rib. We understand that issues occasionally arise even in the best restaurants. Looks like Chef Fernando is right on top of things. Hope that this continues through the summer and look forward to returning during the season.

We had a wonderful time the fish & chips were great as usual and the burger with all the fixings really hit the spot. We shared a banana split - and it was well worth the extra calories - also had a bailey on the rocks to top it off - service was excellent - also highly recommend reservations as your table will be ready and you will not have to wait as it can get busy!!!

We had a great time at Ernie's.
We had a great time at Ernie's. Service was excellent (friendly hostess which accommodated our request and our server Alex was attentive). The food was excellent as well. We went for dinner and we enjoyed everything. We had a treat from the Chef who sent a delicious and beautiful appetizer for the table (Thanks!!). To start the evening we had the amazing, and I mean amazing, oysters!!! I had the meatloaf (excellent dish) and my husband got the salmon (he cleaned the plate). For dessert we took Alex suggestion and we ordered the donuts; perfect ending. Overall it was a great experience. On top of this great dining experience, we got to enjoy the amazing views that the restaurant has (overlooks PGA West Golf course).

Good place to watch a sporting event. Food has improved dramaticly with young chef Fernando! Friendly service staff. Check out the chef's specials of the day.

Great local spot
Restaurant overlooks the PGA West golf course. The oysters were delicious. The meatloaf is great " comfort food" and the bologanase is a recipe Chef Fernando Cruz brought from Italy which everyone loved. The wines are affordable and the donut hole desert is the best. Great evening dining on the patio and there is a mister system.

BEST VEGGIE BURGER
Our server Taylor was terrific and the VB was home made by the chef with mushrooms, beans, corn and it was delicious! It was served on a multi grain bun; would ask for extra pickels. Good salad; french fries just OK. It was noisy even at 2 PM, with lots of golfer reliving their game. We will definity return!

Carr Party of 4 Trying a new Lunch
Our server Ms. Dallas greeted my party with a smile and her service elicited a smile from us. Attentive and knowledgeable. Fully intend to return. Hope to patronize Ms. Dallas again likewise.

A local gem!
Have eaten here many times. The salmon is excellent as are the burgers. Try the pear & date flatbread - a tasty blend of flavors.

A new Ernies?
We were there the other night for dinner. We live in PGA West and have not been there in quite some time. There had been nothing really special aside from being close to home and the view that kept us coming back. We were pleasantly surprised the other night. We started off with a Caesar salad and split it between my two girlfriends. This time they actually split the salad. We were pleasantly surprised. Another pleasant surprise was that they offered warm bread for the first time. The rest of the night was nothing less with the exception of the veggie burger which looked fabulous but the flavor was just so-so. The gal behind the bar was fabulous that night. Bring back your happy hour to include food. We will be back!

Lots of Fun
our group of seven really enjoyed the service and ambiance

We've hit pretty much every restaurant in La Quinta so it was a surprise to load OpenTable's app and see Ernie's listed. We never heard or it nor any of our friends so we gave it a shot. The place was just beautiful. Our server Dallas was great. She was able to give us recommendations on the menu as well as making sure we were not in need of anything. Food came out in a very appealing way for a upscale bar and grill. I was surprised by the the side salad. It came with 4 different types of lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, and peanuts with a great balsamic dressing. The fish and chips were incredible. The fries tasted like they were double fried and the breading on the fish we light and crisp.

We stumbled upon Ernie's and were pleasantly surprised! Ambience delightful and the view wonderful!
The service was very good - I had the Heirloom Tomato & Watermelon Salad ...my husband had the Sliders!
All day Happy Hour...BTW

Sunday Brunch w Better Half
Kudos to Alexander & Bartender Extraordinaire. Second visit to this establishment & have been exceedingly pleased with the service and the food alike. May I add on each occasion the 'better half' has requested an adult libation not on the menu. Still without fail the bartender has concocted a masterpiece. I believe this time it was a Lemon Drop with a watermelon liqueur twist (Secret Menu...).Thanks again Ernie's and Staff on a pleasant experience, the Carr's shall return.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great restaurant and bar! Highly recommended. Food and service are always very good. My favorite: the tomato salad and pears and date pizza. yummm!

Eat out often
Overall experience was very nice. Pleasant greeting from the hostess & also a welcome from the Food & Beverage Manager. Outside seating was beautiful and nice selection of menus items. Didn't see our server for a few minutes. No suggestions & when asked what the soup was, he wasn't sure. Brought us bread & said he'd be right back with bread plates & he forgot. Had to request them. Never offered us another drink, or if we'd like wine with dinner. Just kept asking if we "needed anything else"? Food was scrumptious and the outside with the firepits were very nice! The manager, Bryan came by all the tables on the patio checking on everyone, which was a very nice gesture! Will definitely be back!!!

Beautiful Golf Course View
Gasropub food selections, huge burgers and assorted sandwiches and flatbreads. Our server was excellent and we enjoyed the view of the golf course. TVs placed throughout the restaurant/bar so you don't miss a sports event.

Full moon rising over the foothills and a 50/50 burger. It doesn't get any better.

Love this neighborhood gem!
Love coming to Ernie's when we are in town. The service is always friendly and outstanding. Raul was our server and went out of his way to be accommodating. The chef sent out a sample of his incredible eggplant pita tapas. So delicious!! Hope he adds it to the menu. My husband ordered the 50/50 burger, which is half sirloin and half bacon patty on a brioche bun. I had the Ratatouille flatbread with pesto, goat cheese, arugula and roasted vegetables. We would definitely order both again.

Great club house restaurant
Casual with great view and good service. Limited but creative menu in the heart of PGA West. Fabulous view of the golf course with good indoor and outdoor dining. Comfortable and casual. Food service is run by Waldorf Hotels which also runs the near by La Quinta Resort an CC. A great local hang out and worth the drive for visitors and locals alike.
