touristing in Skineateles, found this restaurant as we headed to the Syracuse airport; the menu varies and is simple, but the food was delicious. countryside is interesting. The owners have refurbished the interior of this old building. Staff of local residents who were friendly with great suggestions.

When driving from Rochester to Auburn, the only things one generally sees are farms, farm animals, country roads and - an organic oasis? Believe it or not, Elderberry Pond in bucolic Auburn has some of the best organic food anywhere in upstate New York. The dining facility is not a barn but rather a building that looks almost stately with... More

A group of seven of us had lunch at this restaurant midweek recently and enjoyed it thoroughly. We called about 20 minutes before we arrived, and they had a table ready for us. The buffet was varied and quite delicious. The items were refreshed often. The service was excellent. My only complaint was they included the gratuity on the bill... More

My husband and I decided to celebrate our anniversary early and wanted to go to someplace different. The restaurant was advertised as a "Farm to Table" restaurant. I called to make a reservation and the hostess made it sound like they were very busy. I had originally wanted 6p.m. reservations but she asked us to come in at 5:30 p.m.... More

We enjoyed a lunch buffet here today, which was thoroughly enjoyable. The salads were FRESH and imaginative. The baby kale was impossibly tender and their bread is very tasty. I sampled each of the three entrees,and they were all excellent. Service was also prompt and attentive, and the buffet runners never let any of the quantity levels get too low.... More

I was here with my husband and son. Lunch service ends at 2:30. We arrived at 2:15. They have a lunch buffet for only $12; it included salads and three main items. Table bread service was included. The waitress assured us buffet items would be refreshed momentarily; and they were. This restaurants uses locally produced and sourced foods. The preparation... More

We stumbled upon this awesome restaurant for lunch. The decor is beautiful, the food is fresh, organic, and creative. The staff is friendly and professional. Every dessert was Perfect but the coconut cream pie was the best I've ever had! We wanted to return for dinner, but sadly there were no reservations available.

My wife has been asking me for many years now to go to Elderberry Farms Restaurant-which I hesitated because I'm not the biggest fan of organically grown food. But this being our 14th Wedding Anniversary-I figured it was time for a try. What a delightful surprise to find this arts and crafts Stickley inspired restaurant-in the middle of what appeared...

We went here for dinner with our children. It was fabulous. The organic food, locally raised beef and heritage bred pork were out of this world. The fresh asparagus was like none other. The service was friendly and they were wonderful to our children. The views were nice and it would be even more beautiful with full foliage and of... More
