Fun atmosphere. Food could have been better. We will try it again to see if it is better the second time around!

We have eaten at this place a couple of times and it seems like very few persons go to restaurant. It opens late in the afternoon and at times the ordering process and food readiness is very slow. Very is ok.

The Ernesto's of old was elegant and unique, with great Italian food and atmosphere. The current Ernesto's is the complete opposite. The beautiful rooms with their elegant linens and table settings have been replaced with cheesy, vinyl, green and white checkerboard prints. The once enticing menu is gone, replaced with a torn up, tri-fold, cardboard menu that you could find in any cheap diner, offering far less in the way of dining choices. There is a musty, closed up smell in the dining room that taints the dining experience. While we were there, we overheard the owner tell someone else who hadn't been there since the restaurant changed hands that they were going for a more casual, inexpensive atmosphere while retaining some of the old recipes and quality. Don't believe it. They sacrificed everything good that Ernesto's was. EXCEPT where their prices are concerned. The bill for three of us (including a child) was over $75, and the food was terrible. The cooks (not chefs) obviously do not taste anything that is leaving their kitchen. The "freshly baked bread" was stale and chewy. Maybe it was freshly baked two or three days before being served, but it was definitely NOT freshly baked the day we were there. The bruschetta was also stale and overdone. There was no seasoning in the food at all, and the fettuccini alfredo tasted like pasta mixed with paste. I know, I know, you're thinking that we are just difficult to please. Not so. We do not need dinner out to be a five star affair. We are a simple, middle class family, who was looking for a nice evening out at a place where we always had good times. What a disappointment! On the plus side, the service was good. Our server was polite and always there anticipating our needs. But that may be because he was bored...there was a total of five people in the entire restaurant at the dinner hour. Save yourself the trouble, or you will pay through the nose for what turns out to be a mediocre experience.

If you are looking for a very lovely restaurant, with Italian food, Ernesto's is for you. While not inexpensive the food is outstanding. The setting is quiet and subdued, with music quietly playing. The wait staff see to your every need. All the food is very fresh and made on the spot. Everyone of us had something different, and it all was amazing.

I would truly recommend going there.

Located in an old house this restaurant has lots of charm and elegance. Whether you're out for an evening with two or twenty or more Ernesto's can accomodate. The food is terrific with many speciality pasta dishes, steaks and seafood. The service is wonderful too. I had a wonderful Mother's Day brunch here and the food was delicious and the desserts were awesome!

I recently had a rehearsal dinner in one of the lower levels banquet rooms and the food and staff were outstanding. All accomidations were met and the servers kept tables quickly bussed and delivered speedy cocktails and wine service. Food was great and guests were very satisfied.

I've eaten at Ernesto's three or four times since Chef Ernesto passed away (6 yrs ago?). I took the editors' suggestion, risotto e pollo, and indeed, the preparation was very good (the calamari appetizer has always been one of the best in Detroit). Their wine list is reasonably priced and sufficiently large. Although the food is not in the same league as the original, it is worthy of a visit if you are in the area.

All the poor comments are from people that have not visited Ernestos in a year or so. The food, service and atmosphere have all improved. My wife and i recently visited for new years eve. Everything was spectacular. They have a new chef, new owners, management, and a new bartending staff with a WIDE variety of wine offered. There are new specials and the service was impecable....definatly worth the visit.

Since Ernie departed the place was never the same. It had a musty odor in the dining room which made dinner even less than enjoyable.

A giant cavernous place with a bad odor and factory like food. The service was O.K. Lousy wine selection. More like a badly run chain restaurant.
