Highly recommend Elderberry House if you’re in town! The food was great for the price, and our server was awesome. Easy parking right out front and nice ambiance. We wish we were seated in the room with all the lights, but we were in a darker room with paintings. Overall, would return to try more courses!

We were at Elderberry House for the New Year’s Eve gala dinner. The 7 course dinner was well presented and many courses were particularly well prepared. In particular the rabbit snd the filet mignon. However the restaurant has lost the level of attention and care that Erna used to give. From her personal greetings to a gift at the end of the meal, and the raffle to the decorations in every room. Her attention was at the gala dinner and at any other normal day. We missed her.

It took 15 minutes to get a menu and our server to greet us . Filet was tough. Wouldn't sit us in the holiday festive room, dark and boring room . Dinner took 3 hours to complete service very slow.

During the holiday season there are several venues that chose to adorn their halls with festive cheer. Erna's Elderberry House selected a marvelous, magical light pattern that created a night under the stars. The beautifully lit dining room was cast in a bright but soft light from the glowing lights overhead. The fireplace added the charm of a cozy room. The staff were more than welcoming and professional throughout the dining experience. The menu had a selection that offered variety of seasonal ingredients for delectable meals. As a party of two we were determined to sample one another's selections. I was surprised the amount of deep fried items throughout the four courses. The flavor profiles were fun to explore with my pallet. Generous truffle shavings were presented. Overall enjoyed the evening and meal but was surprisingly left wanting something slightly more or different, with no understanding what it was lacking.

Service was top notch! Everyone was very attentive throughout the dinner. The food was good, the only thing was that the bread served was cold, but it was a very good meal.

Delicious food and lovely presentation. Pretty small portions. They add 20% gratuity to the bill. My husband didn’t get that and paid another tip. Good news for the server! Their website said they would space diners for privacy, but a loud group was seated right next to us when there were open tables further away that would have made for a quieter experience.

An incredible dining experience at a restaurant we always dreamt of going to. our first time trying a tasting menu with wine pairings, and it certainly didn't disappoint. As my wife said, "Sublime". Creative incredible dishes, wonderful wines and first class friendly service from the entire staff. Thank you so much.

A superb dining experience!! The intimate setting was accented by gracious service and unobtrusive Staff. Diners were spaced thruout the rooms to enhance privacy. 3 and 4 course prix-fixe menus were offered with or without wine pairings. An extensive wine list complemented the menu. Truly a gem hidden in the small town of Oakhurst.

Special, occasion restaurant. Excellent service. 3 or 4 course menu. Delicious crab cake. Bison short ribs. Home-made breads. I think the desserts could be improved for this price range. Beautiful rooms in a house that feels elegant and yet comfortable. A place to dress up. A gem in a small city that seems to just have mediocre places to eat.

This was our first dining experience at this location. Many years ago we dined at the location located in the park. The atmosphere and food presentation was stunning, However the execution was lacking. We ordered cocktails first with plans to discuss the wine pairing and/order bottle of wine. As we were waiting for our cocktails to arrive the bread and soup was served? Margarita does not pair with squash soup?? We had to ask for our cocktails which was served 5 minutes after our first course. Waiter did not discuss wine pairing, she seemed very rushed. As a result we did not order wine. The food was delicious, unfortunately the service was lacking. In hindsight we should have sent the soup back to kitchen until we received our cocktails.

Fine dining at its best. Started with cocktails on the terrace before going into the dining room for dinner. The food was expertly prepared with great attention to detail. The wine pairing was skillfully done to complement the food. The service was spot on. Will certainly go again when I am in the area.

The staff was professional and attentive with charming personalities
Two different entrees were inedible
And the other two were mediocre. The ribeye could have been served at Sizzler restaurant. It’s somewhat doubtful that is was prime ribeye.
The presentation was beautiful and the heirloom salad was fabulous.
The pistachio icecream was like eating a salt lick.
The service was 5 stars and the food 1 1/2. I will not go back nor will our friends 😟

Excellent food, service and ambience. We had 4 course prix fixe dinner. Everything was delicious. Protein portions for entree were delicious but small. I had ribeye steak, which was excellent, but was served without the rib, and probably no more than 4 oz. of meat. My wife had the salmon which was delicious, but also salmon was also no more than 4 oz. The service was excellent, and the outdoor seating was in a beautiful garden setting. Would dine here again if in the Yosemite area- its about 35-40 min from Wawona.
