I went tonight with my family based off a recommendation from a coworker. Initial thoughts were positive and we were looking forward to a good dinner. The food was good but service was not on par. I ordered a side of sausage to accompany my meal which did not come out. Our waitress never caught it. I brought to the attention of the m ... read more

Took my mom here last night, I learned she had kinda given up on ordering Lasagna until last night. Ernesto's Lasagna changed all that. Service was great, the shrimp scampi was the best I have had in a long long time. We will be back!

Great for lunch, dinner, too!
Hubby and I have eaten here many times. It's a go to place for lunch-they have a great buffet and it's fresh and very reasonable! Dinner, as always, for us is superb! I would highly recommend and take family and friends there!

The brunch is fantastic... Excellent salad bar, but the food (pizza, pasta, lasagna, vegetables, soup, fish, and bread) are some of the best we have ever had... Strongly recommend the food and service at Ernesto's as one of the best restaurants in the Beaverton area..
Tim Towell via google.com - Sep 4, 2017
The lunch buffet is without question the best Italian restaurant lunch buffet in all of the Portland general metro area... Service is outstanding, salad bar is fantastic, and the soups, pasta, lasagna, fish, bread, pizzas and more are some of the best I have ever tasted...

A delightful find tucked away among storefronts. Bigger than it looks from the outside. Reasonable prices, friendly, nice ambience and good food. All of us enjoyed our dishes. The antipasto player was tasty and generous. Steak was good. Spaghetti sauce was to die for. Made me realize how good simple spaghetti can be. Motivated me to ... read more

My wife and I went to dinner here and we were both very impressed with the quality of the food.  I ordered the seafood piccata with a Caesar salad.  It was hands down the best salad I have ever tasted.  It had real lettuce (not the bowl of fancy weeds you get at some places) and you could tell the dressing was made on site.  The wine ... read more

I give this place 4 stars not because of the food but because of the service and atmosphere. The food was so-so, nothing to write home about. Typical Italian food. Not the best I've ever had but it was good. The salad bar was okay, again nothing special. Wish they had more items to put on the salad too. But where I give them their st ... read more

Had dinner here on a whim. Felt like Italian food but didn't feel like driving all the way downtown. You can usually tell how good a restaurant is by traditional Italian staple dishes-- IE: the carbonara.

Our waitress and the spaghetti meat sauce were the bright spots. Salad was average. I didn't care for the foccacia bread. Very dry and the topping was too salty and crumbly. Atmosphere was nice. I didn't partake in the salad bar but it looked clean and fresh.

Went to Ernesto's on a Saturday night and only waited about 5 minutes to be seated. Menu is large and a little pricy. I ordered the chicken parmesan and it was delicious. Will definitely come back to this place as I enjoyed the food, service, and the lack of wait time!

Ernestos is an old-line Italian Restaurant that we have frequented for years.

Was taken here tonight by our neighbors. I've been searching for a good Italian restaurant in Beaverton (or close to it) and this did a great job.

The lasagna looked great as ... read more
