I love that this place has a clear philosophy that they stick to about keeping things local and fresh, it really shows in their menu. We visited for a weekday lunch and found that it was full. Good for them! The staff were friendly and the menu was detailed. Each of us loved our entrees and we were bummed to... More

We had time to spare between Syracuse and Rochester - found a Finger Lakes tourist brochure in our motel - decided that Auburn looked about right and the restaurant at Elderberry Pond organic farm looked like the place to be. It was an interesting drive from Exit 40 on I-90 West - the GPS took us on narrow winding roads... More

on a recent "weekend getaway" to the finger lakes, we came upon Elderberry Pond restaurant by chance. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were filled with a sense of serenity. Sitting in the sun room overlooking the grounds we enjoyed one of the most wonderful meals we have had in a long time! The service was impeccable and... More

Great food, friendly knowledgeable staff, accommodating. I order an appetizer and the daily vegetables and was very happy with my choice. The delicata squash and mashed potatoes were very tasty. Thjs was our second visit there and we would certainly go more often if it were closer to Buffalo. As it is, it is fairly isolated and as you are... More

After many failed attempts to each lunch at EP, we finally went for dinner and we were NOT disappointed. From the reservations, through the greetings, to a lovely table, through the best Malbec and dinner - we could not have had a more enjoyable experience. Everyone we encountered was delightful. We will definitely be back ... and for those that... More

We have been there a few times. Overall, the food was good, but not spectacular. The Dickens dinner is a special occasion meal, however. That was very enjoyable.

We visited in the fall & the ride there & the scenery is very nice. The organic, fresh food was presented in a creative, pleasing manor. The waitstaff is friendly & the decor of the dining room is country well done.

This was our first visit, based on a local friends recommendation. Chicken sandwich was tender and delicious. Fresh vegetable pasta was inspiring and surprised us with its flavor profile. Patience is a must as this is an experience not just a meal. Our server was wonderful and we will be back!

This is our second time we have eaten at Elderberry Pond. Both times were for lunch. It is a wonderful restaurant. The food is prepared using organic produce from their farm. The wait staff was very friendly. It was a nice day so we were able to eat on the outside patio where we could enjoy the beautiful piece of... More
