Gem in the middle of nowhere. Very good service and decor is very nice.
My only complaint is the wine list is too expensive. We live in California and I appreciate some of the unique wines selected for the list, however $60 a bottle for low end is too high. There are plenty of great lower end wines you could carry that would fit a cost minded person. When I was working at IBM HQ in New York their executives flew with a mix of Kendall Jackson. The KJ Cab, Merlot and Chardonnay are very good wines and fit a budget much better.
Outstanding staff service, excellent cocktails and portions were adequate
Great waiter, but the food was marginal. We would have had a better tasting meal at Black Bear Diner.
We have eaten here ever since they opened and have never been disappointed. Hand crafted meals from a wonderful menu choice, it’s been our go to spot for special occasions.
Ernies lived up to the hype. Service was I impeccable, food was absolutely delicious and atmosphere very pleasant. Ernie’s is the perfect local spot to take that special someone for a romantic occasion.
We had an incredible experience! This was a first visit for my husband and me. We will be back again!!
Excellent, unobtrusive and almost impeccable service. Food uniformly very good. Expensive but within reason - except for the wine list which is very much overpriced.
Ernie's is always our go to place for special occasion's. Definitely an elegant ambience! The best restaurant in the Valley.
We have been happy with Ernies in the past but not this time. At $100 steak and lobster should knock your socks off. Meat flavor was not there. Lobster had mushy texture which suggests frozen. Braised entre not what I call braised. Salad was good and drinks were great but overall disappointing. Know we are lucky to be able to afford pricey food but.......
Awesome food! Awesome service!!
Steaks were cooked perfectly and everything tasted delicious.
Service was excellent, food was delicious!
I used to frequent Ernie's when it was in Stockton. I'm so glad that I ventured to Manteca to dine with them again. The food and service were superb! I'll definitely be back!
Halibut special and lamb shanks were delicious. Excellent wine selection.
Food was fantastic! Restaurant was noisy with music layered on top of a relatively small dining area. Next time I know to reserve a booth specifically. First time there, will definitely return.
One great place hidden in a small non descrip shopping center. You walk in and think you have gone into a high end NY restaurant. The food is top notch, service is impeccable.
This is a "go to" spot for our special occasions. The food is excellent and inventive.
Excellent fine dining in Manteca
This was a great find! I’ve lived here for 3 years and never knew this place was here. It’s a great place to take a date. Great food selection and wine and cocktail selections. I’ll be back. A little on the pricey side, but the service, food, drink selection, and ambiance clearly makes it worth it.
Best restaurant I have been to in a long time, a real gem
Supper good food. High end restaurant feel. You will spend some extra money but live a little and take your special someone out for a quality time.
Our server, Gregory, was superb.
Why was this meal restricted from earning points?
A gem in Manteca. Who would have known a place like this was behind those plain doors. Ernie's is beautiful, the service is awesome & the food is amazing. A must when in Manteca!
Adult beverages were excellent as were the entrees. Their Affagatos are far and away the very best any ware.
Great food, ambiance, service but a little pricey. It was my Wife’s birthday.
Would definitely save up and go again.
Always god service and food at Ernies
Ernie’s is quite the hidden gem in Manteca California.
It offers an Extensive Wine List that consists of both French and California wines; that is very impressive.
The menu has a nice selection of beef in various cuts, exquisitely prepared to your liking and seafood which includes scallops, lobster, crab and a marvelous grilled shrimp cocktail appetizer that is unique unto itself.
The desert selection was very nice from French inspired to Italian delicacy.
I was very impressed with the Master Chef walking around the dining area speaking to the guests after the excellent dishes that he and his team prepared for us; everyone seemed very pleased with their food.
The ambiance was delightful, the service exceptional and the food had so many taste variations I lost count.
This would definitely be a very nice place to take that special someone to indulge in a wonderful dinner on that special occasion.
I give Ernie’s Five Stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!
Excellent food and service. This is one of our "go to" places for a special occasion.
Always a wonderful experience and Gregory is my favorite server but they are all wonderful! Hats off to the chief!!
Extraordinary find off the beaten track in Manteca, CA! Exceptional wine list and bar list. Cuisine creative and portions generous.
The food and the service were both off the charts. I had the lobster and it was cooked to perfection.
Always great and service outstanding. The atmosphere is so nice and relaxing.
The decor, atmosphere and service were wonderful. The food exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be returning and telling our family and freinds about Ernies.
Excellent, from the time we arrived until we finished our experience was excellent .
A high-end restaurant in Manteca. Professional staff and great food and great ambiance.
We have been here several times and have always had a good meal. I started with the stone fruit salad and had the salmon with swiss chard and wild rice for my dinner. My husband had the wedge salad and the filet mignon with veggies and mashed potatoes. We finished with the butterscotch bread pudding. Everything was excellent including the Belle Gloss Pinot Noir recommended by our waiter. The only suggestion I have is the bread pudding was a bit dry and could have used some ice cream or an anglaise sauce with it. We had a lovely evening and will definitely return.
I asked for well done and they gave me medium well :( .
Awesome place food fantastic! Atmosphere wonderful! Can’t wait to go back ! Service was impeccable!
