Ernesto's Wine Bar
Good food for the price. Would go back again.
Always good great value and great ambiance!
A must try!
The fish was undercooked and the food was very bland. The server did not offer additional drinks/dessert prior to bringing the check.
Loved the food and the waitress!
Very nice wine bar, is one of our favorite places to grab dinner. The atomoshpere is quite, laid back & very relaxing place to have great food & conversation.
Great food, attentive service and amazing old fashioned!!!
Had an enjoyable evening. Great place to hang out with friends. Excellent wind selection. Food was very tasty and plentiful! You won't leave hungry (or thirsty).
Everything was wonderful...from the service to the location to the food. Love this place!
Food was delicious, especially the scalloped potatoes.
We like to eat late after the symphony and rely on Open Table to find restaurants open late. We made a reservation for 10:30 pm but when we arrived, were told that the kitchen had closed. They offered to serve us cocktails but no apology our even a recognition that this was an issue. Fortunately we found another place nearby which was still serving.
I think that if a restaurant is on Open Table, they should make sure their reservation slots actually reflect the hours that they are serving. It's not a site for making bar reservations, obviously.
Food is outstanding. Wine selection is great. Donna is the best server/bartender in the city!
The food was good but the service was below average. The waitress/hostess/bartender was engaging in loud, inappropriate conversations with the staff which we could hear while dining.
Fantastic service and the food was very very good. Great neighborhood restaurant. Highly recommend.
The staff was amazing, Donna catered to our every need. The lighting and music were perfect.
Great evening for the four of us at Ernesto's Wine bar in Benton Park. Our server was wonderful - very accommodating and attentive. We often choose Ernesto's for dinning with a group of friends; it is intimate, relatively quiet, and has great food.
Great food and service!!
Mediocre. Hummus should be hummus, not an orange colored mass that is not hummus.
Our server Donna was wonderful! Service and food was excellent!
Go here for two things, the grilled cheese and the tuna tartare. Tuna tartare is my favorite and I ask that they go easy on the cucumber as that can overwhelm the flavor. Blended from tuna steak scraps and served with crispy fresh fried wonton chips it can be a meal in itself. the grilled cheese won best i\of St. Louis award and is very hearty.
Used to love this place. Seems the food quality has really gone downhill.
We always love their food and service. Sometimes we are able to sit in their amazing outside seating (since they have a fireplace it is good most of the year) and also enjoy the intimate inside seating
Donna is a hoot! Menu was ok and food was mediocre.
One of our favorite places to go! The meal was wonderful.
There was no one else in their on a Friday night. The food was terrible and cooked in a microwave oven. The bartender was audibly disgruntled about life. I couldn't wait to get out of there. We will never return or recommend this place to anyone.
My husband and I decided to try a new place for us--Ernesto's was our pick! We got in with no problem. We sat in the bar area at a TOO small for 2 to eat dinner. The menu was smaller than the table! I think they had four entrees. I had the chicken piccata, which was fairly mundane. My husband got the sole, which was the featured seafood. He found it to be terrible, and he likes everything. He didn't clear his plate, which is unheard of for him. This place had outside seating, which was probably nice. It was in the rear, and I think there is a fireplace on the patio. This place is probably better suited for drinking and hanging out than for eating dinner.
Loved It, Donna the hostess was fantastic, the food also fantastic.
Great service, good ambiance. Menu is unique, very good food. Wine list is extensive. Will definitely go back.
Excellent food! Fabulous drinks and wine. Service was outstanding and the atmosphere is so warm and welcoming
First night in St Louis and the Airbnb host recommended Ernesto’s.....wow were we happy to find the absolute Jen of a place.
The wine we ordered was delicious and very well priced and served attentively by the waiter. The food was sublime, we are from England and holiday in Italy every year and the food here at Ernesto’s was like being back in Tuscany. The shared starter was plentiful without being too much, the cheese was the very best we have had in 3 months in the US, the sliced meats were succulent and tasty.....the Crostini? Delicious and authentic. We both had the special for main a bacon wrapped pork tenderloin stuffed with a house made chorizo stuffing, with fresh mashed potato and green beans. Perfectly cooked and very tasty, the green beans still had bite and the mask was creamy and full of flavour. We finished with Creme Brûlée perfect mixture of creamy smooth custard and crisp crunchy sugar topping
The waiter was exceptionally good, a New Yorker in his mid-late 20’s very friendly and also knowledgable about the dishes and the wine.
This was everything an raving out should be
Really wonderful food and nice experience. I took my husband here for his BD and we had the two specials (Shrimp Fettucini Alfredo and a red snapper dish) that were impeccably prepared and beautifully presented. The service was perfect. Love this restaurant!
We had a great experience - food and atmosphere was fabulous and our waiter Brandon made our night just perfect! Go and enjoy a lovely night out at Ernestos!
A favorite spot. Comfortable and good food. The best feature is the wonderful wait staff.
Had a great time at Ernestos. The staff was helpful, joyful and great. Drank them out of their fig-bourbon in the Fig-Hattens. Amazing cocktail. Wonderful neighborhood spot. Can't wait to come back and try their patio in warm weather.
Small portions. Steak was great but vegies weren't even cooked.
What a lovely place! Excellent food. The Ernesto's flatbread and pesto fettuccine were delightful. Debbie was our server and was delightful! Good wine selection.
