    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.

    Every single bite was delicious. 119 dollars per person for a four course meal that’s thoughtfully prepared is definitely worth it. And I love that they have mocktails.

    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.

    A surprising dining experience in the Sierra Foothills. We could easily have been in San Francisco or Paris or ....Lovely fine European design dining room, the decor reveals attention to all of the details from lighting to furniture to art work to architectural details of the building...like a villa or even chateau...the servers were highly professional, from knowledge of the menu to polite and friendly conversation to impeccable timing...the food was detailed, beautifully presented, creative and delicious...what else can I say?

    Fine dining with excellent service - ambience of being in Paris, complete with French music in the background. Very nice presentation of food and delivery, nice touch with amuse bouche and jellies at the end. The pricing on the website is inaccurate - $119 for four course with 22% service fee added in automatically is what was charged. I can understand with COVID and supply chain issues, the increase may be warranted. If you're in the Yosemite area, this restaurant is a nice surprise find. We'll return.

    Inadvertently booked Mother’s Day dinner while we were up the highway in Fish Camp visiting Yosemite. This meant we had a prix fixe menu, but we greatly enjoyed it. Service was warm. Loved the quiet ambiance of the dining rooms. Mocktails and wine were both delicious. We would come back to order off the normal menu any time.

    It’s very fancy place. Service is top notch. Be prepared to pay $150-200 per person. I was overcharged for 2 people drinking bottled water when neither had any water. That was $20 overcharged with tax and tip. Even though you get one bottle of water, they charge $7 per person so with tax and tip, it’s pricey water. I didn’t notice until after I left because I was treating my mom and family to dinner and didn’t want them to see how pricey the bill was. It’s nice restaurant but it’s not worth the cost.

    Service and food are on par with some of Napa’s best restaurants. They deserve a Michelin rating. The ambiance is quiet, yet romantic. The Chateau grounds are beautiful. My husband and I were visiting Yosemite for the first time and were very disappointed in the lack of good food options. This was the culinary highlight of our trip.

    Each dish was exceptional. I think the serving sizes for each prix fix were reasonable. We had the 4 course with wine pairing. Service was impeccable. The restaurant added 22% gratuity automatically which brought our final bill to more than $500 for 2 of us with no extra drinks. I would love to go more often but the price will limit us to only going on a very rare occasion.

    Easter brunch with my in-laws. As much as we enjoyed the company, the service and the ambiance were amazing, as always. The menu was light and full of the flavors of the season. We indulged in a couple of cocktails (“last words”) and were delighted with a bottle of rosé. This place makes any occasion super special, and makes sure your experience is impeccable. A place to come back.

    I've been coming here for 30 years. I've wondered if the new owner would keep up the high standard that has always made the Eldeberry House the best restaurant in the region - or honestly as good of a restaurant as exists anywhere in the US. I was pleased to find that they have maybe even taken the level of excellence up a knotch. This has always been and still is my favorite restaurant in the world. The ambiance, the location in the Sierra mountains, it only being a 45 min drive from Fresno but feeling like you've been transported to the alps - this place is magic.
