We waited years to get the chance to dine at Elderberry Pond. When we finally went, we were disappointed at how bland everything was. The only things that weren't almost entirely unseasoned were the appetizers, which were about how we would make them at home. For these prices, I want BETTER than what I do at home. We would pay...

We were excited to dine at Elderberry Pond farm for our overnight getaway to Auburn NY. We commonly eat organic meals with many fresh vegetables so this restaurant seemed to be right up our alley. The interior was very nice and the service was good. However the meals were very disappointing, there was no choice of salad dressing, we weren't... More

Just after Christmas and thanksgiving; we had our fill of turkey and stuffing yet curiosity peeked. "I'll have the turkey dinner" and my husband looked at me incredulously. " more turkey," he teased. I but all muffled my mouth to not make gutteral sounds of yum and ah. I didn't want it to ever end. I left with my belly... More

i had their featured pork chop and my dinning partner had the featured duck. Both entrées were done perfectly with just the right amount of spices to enhance the meat. It was served with fresh asparagus and nicely prepare potatoes. The desert was as great as the rest of the meal. One of the things I most appreciate is the... More

We had a lovely dinner at elderberry Pond. The food was unbelievably fresh and delicious and the presentation was superb! The atmosphere was just as lovely. The prices are higher than we usually pay, but it was a special event so we splurged.

For those who love farm to table dining, this is the place! Great variety of offerings expertly prepared with locally sourced organic ingredients make this a wonderful taste experience. The rural setting make this a great overall experience. Note: Restaurant is closed December until Mid-March.

On a cold winter night, 4 of us headed for Elderberry Pond in a mini snow storm. We came because of the special "Dickens Christmas Dinner". This was a 4 course meal for $35 per person. We started out with a small wine list, of not many familiar wines. The Risling was fair the merlot OK. Our dinner started with... More

We enjoyed our first-time visit to Elderberry Pond. We were warmly greeted by the owner and promptly seated. The atmosphere is pleasant with high ceilings. We chose to partake in the Fall Harvest 3-course menu ($39/pp). I started with a mixed greens salad and roasted red pepper dressing (house made from their peppers). He had soup (I can't remember which... More

The fall bounty was in full bloom and it tasted as wonderful as it looked! We are real foodies especially after just returning from 3 weeks in Northern Italy. Our dinner was as good as the locally sourced, organic food we had in Italy. This was particularly true for the prosciutto and pork dishes.
