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

We enjoyed the live music, but the food was definitely not worth the 2+ hours we were there, let alone the bill that came with it. With all of the other options in Shreveport, I wouldn't eat here.

The service and food at this restaurant was amazing. Location is a little difficult to get to but well worth the journey. Restaurant is not much to look at from the outside but the wonderful journey begins with the very courteous valet attendant. The host was most welcoming, even though we had no reservations seating was not a problem. The... More

Here for dinner.This night they had entertainment. O.K. but a bit loud. Place was busy. Tommy waited on our table. Been there 41 years he said. Did a good job even though I could tell he was stretched thin. We had the marinated crab claws, shrimp remoulade, seafood gumbo, snapper shreve, shared several flaming desserts and adult coffee. I agree... More
