    Very disappointed in this restaurant. Though the service was great - very well trained staff, the food was just not good. It was a prefix menu and of course not a lot of option. Risotto with truffle had no taste at all - the truffle did not even have the distinct truffle smell. Steak was as tender or flavorful as you would think given that it had some sort of sauce. Also it was 2 tiny little pieces. Everything was served in a huge plate and super tiny portion. Would definitely not recommend this place

    A very beautiful French Chateau in Sierra foothills. We spent a very pleasant evening. World class dining with an exceptional service! I am only giving this place 4/5 stars because of bit too much sugar in soup. Fish was fantastic, and dessert- above and beyond!

    We celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary, a special evening in a special place. We had the four course meal with paired wines. Outstanding! I brought a 1978 Bordeaux and our waiter was excellent at removing the cork, decanting and pouring. A very leisurely atmosphere with most excellent staff and meal. It was worth the 3 1/2 hour drive from the Bay Area.

    Excellent food and atmosphere. The staff was very attentive and enjoyable. The price is high, but the quality is very good. I would go back, but only on special occasions. It is a place that asks a lot $$ wise, but delivers on an excellent dining experience. I would recommend highly if you have the pocket book.

    Food and its presentation were everything we expect at Erna’s. We do miss Erna greeting all of her guests, though. The last time we dined at Erna’s, I think I remember the chef making the rounds of the guests’ tables but it was quite busy this time.

    It was nice, nothing over the top. Good outing and reason to get dressed up. A bit pricey for the 4 course meal. Beware that you will be charged 22% service charge, which I thought was too much for what overall experience including the food and presentation, especially when you had one amuse bouche only, nothing to cleanse your palate at the end of the dinner when your bill came, and not really a wow factor. Will not return.

    We had not eaten at Erna’s Elderberry House in more than 30 years since we moved away from the area. We included a visit to Erna’s in our recent vacation to Yosemite. We splurged and opted for the 4 course meal with wine pairing. It was pricey but oh my was it good! The service was excellent - we really appreciated Erica’s knowledge about wines and her food pairings were perfect! We were absolutely stuffed at the end of the meal, so maybe the 3 course meal would have been a better choice but neither of us wanted to skip the crab cakes (which could have been a meal by itself). Our meal included an excellent carrot soup, yummy spinach salad, perfectly cooked ribeye and scallops. The meal ended with a chocolate bombe and coffee chocolate ganache. We weren’t sure if our experience now would be similar to our experiences of the past, but both of us thought that the quality of the meal and the overall experience was even better than what we had experienced in the past.

    Our evening started out perfectly. But as the meal went on the imperfections started to show. We purchased a wonderful bottle of Pinot but ended up pouring it ourselves. One of our main courses had a hair which was discovered upon the first bite. We flagged down a server who took it back but not a single person acknowledged the hair. After that, it was as if we were not even there. After waiting 30 minutes we had to ask for our dessert and then again for our check. This is not the level of service I would expect from the team at Elderberry House.
