“Excellent choice of wine and surprising menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

I really enjoyed dinner at Erno's. There were a couple of things we wanted to have and asked the waiter to Sk the kitchen to arrange the menu around those and they really did very well. Excellent choice of wine and very good service. The atmosphere is not too posh so that you still can feel comfortable and relaxed. Will definitely go there again.

“Pricy but quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

French cuisine that is not only about garlic and heavy sauces. Nicely fine cuisine with french touch. Well presented on your plate. Tasty amuses and small deserts. Look forward to experience their wins. Observed how the kitchen brigade tastet a wine from one glass with professional joy. It is pricy but for good quality food I will come again, both for business and private. If not for the price it would have been top. They love food but understand the value.

“Very Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Great Restaurant over all but a bit more expensive than expected.
i really appreciate good food and good wine and we were willing to pay more than usual for a nice french cuisine but i think it was too much.
i had the squid because i didnt have any other option for a non meat dish insted of pasta and it was 39 euros. The total cost ofcourse per person was 120 euros with the strarter soup and wine.
We are meditteranean and as you canunderstant paying 39 euros for squid is a bit rediclous.
However the service and wine was really really good.

“History repeats!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

From what I understand this place is around for a while, decades even, I was in Frankfurt for a trade show and decide to treat myself and I'm glad I did! Be under no illusions this is not a cheap 2-3 hours but it deffinately is a gastronomic treat, from the start the staff make you feel welcome and the wine list is very comprehensive, albeit pricey. Indulge and move on! The food is imaginative with delicate presentation. All round a great meal, expect to pay between €75 and €150 per person depending on the wine, would thoroughly recommend.

“Most expensive water I have ever tasted”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Nice place,service good and food very good but expensive for what it is. We had a bottle of champagne and one average bottle of wine and for 4 paid 582 euros. A bottle of still water was 10 Euros !!! I dont mind paying a bit more in a nice restaurant but I think that is pushing it.
