Our visit last week was great from the time we entered and had our reservation verified all the way through the evening. The service was great and everyone was very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent as well as being a great value. I think we’ve found a new favorite restaurant

This restaurant used to be so very good but man, has it gone down hill!!!! It is WAY overpriced!!! $40 for a 6oz filet of red Snapper with a little bit of crab on top????!!!!! $14 for one ice cream scoop of bread pudding????!!!!! Food was so disappointing. Like I said Ernest’s used to be soooooo good but not anymore, don’t waste your time and money!

I can’t believe I’ve waited so long to come back! We had a great dining experience. We were greeted and seated by the man himself. Was treated by his complimentary cheese bread with some magical marinara sauce. The ribeye and filet were even more impressive. Can’t wait for next trip to Shreveport/Bossier City, won’t leave until eating here again!

The food and the environment was amazing! I took my boyfriend for his birthday and he loved the food so much, and he is super picky when it comes to food. Highly recommend for a date night!

The word amazing doesn’t do it justice. Not stuffy but yet high end. Great service, attention to details. Bread is awesome! Had the snapper in a bag with lump crab meat and shrimp in a champagne reduction...must have!!! We felt it was worth every penny! And our server Shawn was down to earth, charismatic, and very informative. We will be back!

I’ve been eating crab claws at Ernest’s for almost 50 years. (Not a typo 😉) Delicious food. We drive all of the way from Dallas to enjoy dinner here. I love bringing new people with me and introducing them to this institution, don’t let the exterior fool you. Enjoy!

Food was very good and service acceptable. I order a scotch that had some dark specks that resemble coffee grinds in the bottom, however they replaced my drink. The house appetizer which was suggested (60 year old recipe) was really good, not great. I ordered the Red Snapper Ernest, was really good. Overall, I would definitely go back. Server was really nice and accommodating too.

An old-school French/Creole restaurant with a very friendly atmosphere.
We were treated warmly from the very first, with personal attention first from the maitre d' and then Ernest made an appearance at our table to address our dietary restrictions. Our food was very good, starting with fresh bread and the house special marinated crab claws. Main courses and sides were very good, but to our tastes a bit heavy with butter. Service was attentive and overall excellent. We enjoyed our stay as did the large party and diners at other tables. Recommended for the experience.

Don't be afraid of the exterior of the building. Inside sits a true gem, like a geode; Ernest's Orleans has a beautiful interior with excellent service and food. Amazing gumbo, and pasta dishes, I didn't have any of the steak but I assume it is just as delicious.
