I've been to most all the highest rated steak and seafood places & in Shreveport over the past few years, and this is the only knew I was genuinely disappointed by. Meals in the typical $120 meal for two with drinks, it just wasn't up to par like the village grille bignon's superiors etc. It was... read more

We went to dinner at Ernest's Orleans based on a recommendation...What a mistake! The only reason I'm giving it two stars is because the valet was extremely friendly, and the bread was wonderful. There were four of us and we all agreed the only thing worse than the food, was the service! Our meals were served about 5 minutes apart,... More

Enjoyed a Thursday night out to this location and pleasantly surprised with food, service and music in the bar area. Sure it's retro / 70's, but it was excellent. Started w/ break and crab leg bites, had veal parm, with side of spaghetti (too much too eat), and I had a hankering for fried oysters so they served up 1/2... More

I swear it looked like we had returned to the 70's on entering the building. Decor and staff stepped out of the same era. My wife and I were seated in the bar area that featured tables spaced so tightly that we had to get up from our seats so that someone at another table could leave. Took forever to... More

If you want to experience what Fine Dining is and was- Ernest's Orleans Restaurant is the best there is. It is costly but well worth the expense.

It's over priced a bit and parking is in the mud unless you valet. Food was great and service was great.

I have eaten at this Restaurant 3 times now, this will be the last!!! Steak and Fish was pretty good, but the Baked Potato had been cooked for awhile and was semi warm. I travel all over and I believe this was the most expansive meal I have ever eaten along. No alcohol, No dessert and it was $90.00 before... More

One of our favorite restaurants anywhere in the world. The food and service are always a special experience. You have to be hungry because there are so things you can't miss. We always start with the "hot shrimp" (just two lightly fried shrimp served in a small cup of remoulade that is out of this world. You will be dragging... More

We ate here upon the recommendation of a friend. We were a bit skeptical when we drove up to the building, but once inside, we were seated immediately and the waiters were excellent. They made great recommendations for appetizers and our entree and basically "fed us". We really never looked at a menu. The presentation of our flaming seafood gumbo... More
