Our food was nice, the service was fairly good and the evening overall was most enjoyable and memorable for the right reasons. However I cannot rate it excellent because at the price ($108 per head for food alone) and the restaurant's aspiration, it is "off the ball" in various minor but telling ways. Examples: food was just a bit too... More

Erna's Elderberry House is a five star restaurant. It has a European old world ambiance, quiet, elegant and special. The food is thoughtfully plated so that you will enjoy each item on your plate. Quality wines in abundance. Fountains outside. The holidays are especially notable with twinkling lights to greet you at the entrance and special items offered for your... More

An amazing dining experience from start to finish. Wonderful and personable wait staff who knew how to describe each course as they brought it to the table. Great wine pairing with each course. The food was world class. Unimaginably creative and delicious! A small quiet atmosphere where your 6 course meal is meant to be enjoyed and experienced for over... More

Erna's is amazing! The food is exquisite. Delicious, perfectly prepared and presented, well crafted courses paired with excellent wines. The decor is elegant, but not pretentious. You feel like royalty. The service is attentive, polite, and friendly. It's a fancy dining experience that doesn't feel oppressive or dour. You feel like an explorer discovering gold when you come across this... More

This is one of those places that can't be put into words; just have dinner here if you're anywhere within 500 miles of Oakhurst. The restaurant doesn't belong in such a blue collar town, would would right at home alongside any restaurant in the country. It's an expensive, fixed menu, but the chef has command of the kitchen, and I'd... More

Very, very expensive here. The food is really good actually, but the cost is a rip off. I think Erns has thr game sown il though as she is the only fine dining in town.

Restaurant serves excellent food and service is commendable. The view is awesome but it is kinda pricey though. For the 4 of us, it's about $100 pp including the tip. It was a very nice experience on Mother's day.

Located in Oakhurst, it is the best restaurant within many miles, and well worth the visit. Combined with a stay in the associated hotel, Chateau du Sureau, it is an unforgettable experience.

Located in Oakhurst, a gateway community on the way to Yosemite, Erna's Elderberry House and its companion hotel/spa, Chateau du Sureau, offer exceptional food and accommodations and are well worth visiting whether or not Yosemite is in your plans.
