We look forward to occasional day trips from Rochester to a destination with a nice lunch spot and a delightful attraction. Auburn was the choice the other day and we were not disappointed. The word about Elderberry Pond reached use last year with a feature in the Rochester newspaper. It sounded great, but it’s closed over-winter because their offerings come... More

Went with a group of 8 and we had a wonderful lunch together. We were greeted and seated and then since we asked we were told a bit about the restaurants history and mission. The waitress was friendly and knowledgable and the food was fantastic. A quiet rural setting with a menu inspired by local fresh organic ingredients was a... More

My wife and had lunch here today on a gorgeous spring afternoon. We had heard of Elderberry Pond and decided to give it a try. It is out in the country in a wood like setting. The two dining areas are elegant. We had a wonderful table for two overlooking the woods. Service was superb. Our waitress Caroline was friendly... More

This was not our first visit, and it will not be the last. We went for lunch shortly after they reopened for the season. It was cold, with deep snow outside, but warm and cheery inside, with the fireplace going. As usual the specials were inventive,the homemade pizza and soup great. The staff was as friendly and well informed as... More

Everything is very fresh and I think locally produce. Asparagus was best I ever had by a mile, grown on site. I ordered a steak and I think I could have cooked and prepared it better at home. Wife's pasta dish didn't have much taste. Everything was bland and costs a lot. Pass on this.

We found Elderberry Pond Restaurant online. It was a convenient midpoint for my husband and I to meet his sister for lunch. It had great reviews and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is roomly, and beautifully appointed. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. The food was so very good....the men had the angus burgers, which they raved about.... More

Nice atmosphere, service was exceptional, my pork was good, squash soup was perfect, my husband did not like his 1/2 roasted chicken in a bowl, too hard to cut, was tippy and bird was tough. I like that they raise the chickens and pigs right there. Farm to table!!!! I will definitely go back, just not get chicken in bowl.
