The atmosphere was still very nice but things have changed and we don't think for the better...My mate and I had lunch and met in the bar. Took forever to get someone to wait on us. We were the only people in the bar and I think they had 4 tables in the dining room. After we were seated for... More

If you're looking for a place to drop some serious cash in return for an incredible experience, I recommend Ernie's to anybody in the 209. Ernie's ranks right up there with the best restaurants in San Francisco. Quality comes at a price, and you'll spend a fair chunk of change. Having said that, if you are looking to splurge, I...

We went to Ernie's with a family member who knew the chef. There were 3 of us couples. We each enjoyed our dinner very much. The steaks melted in their mouth and my sea bass special was a treat. Everything from the French onion soup to the cheesecake to the bread pudding was fantastic.. I would highly recommend this place... More

When you go inside the restaurant, all the doubts you've had going there will disappear. Enie's is a quaint, but lovely restaurant. It had a nice looking bar and a few chairs and tables. We went out for dinner on a Monday night. It wasn't packed at first, but there were people there and more came as night passed. Our... More

My husband and I were visiting my parents here in Manteca. We are coming from North Carolina where we have a huge variety of excellent farm to table restaurants so we were not expecting much. Well to our surprise Ernie's was fabulous to say the least. First the decor was top notch with an excellent display of wines as you... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here. The service was wonderful! The atmosphere was very nice - nice decor, lighting, and very comfortable seats in the booths. Our waitress went out of her way to accommodate us (including scraping the breadcrumbs off the tablecloth into a container). I had the filet mignon which was cooked to perfection. My husband...

We stopped at this place on our way to Yosemite to meet up with some relatives. The food was fantastic and the service was great. The only reason I'm docking one star is because my wife and I both called on separate occasions beforehand to confirm that they allowed dogs on the patio (we were beginning a camping trip so...
