"Wow! Ernest's exceeded our expectation and we will be back for sure many time in the future. Our waiter was discreet & professional and we have not had better service in a while in Edmonton!"

"We having been coming once a year from outside Calgary for The Alberta Golf Association buying show. The past four occasions have been a lovely treat for us. Each time has been a unique and wonderful experience.

It’s wonderful for us to be able to enjoy a fabulous meal, team build for ourselves and participate in watching young minds and people grow. Thumbs up to each of the students, teachers, faculty over the last four seasons."
