My wife made reservations for a 3 night stay at Erna's I didn't know what to expect. I was blown away by the rooms, the food and the service.

This restaurant is sublime. the chef is creative, combining unusual ingredients that result in complex and delicious flavors. The staff is attentive and efficient. The atmosphere is quiet and worthy of the meal you are going to get. The multigrain housemate bread is a definite plus.

My husband and I were staying at the Chateau du Sureau and were excited for our dinner at Erna's. The food was delicious, and the house is very unique, I enjoyed the old world decor. Erna stopping by the table to welcome us was a nice touch. However, the service seemed a bit spotty for the price you pay for... More

We had a reservation and decided to go despite having come back from a tiring hike in Yosemite Park and boy were we glad that we did. This is not the type of restaurant you expect to see in this area. The food and the wine pairing was fabulous and the service was second to none. I would definitely go... More

You can't go wrong with this choice: excellent food, great wine. Very romantic, perfect for a special occasion, or just because you're tired of having burgers or BBQ. Very luxurious and satisfying. The wait staff are extremely welcoming but need training on their fine dining language and wine list. They may not know everything you'd expect from a star-worthy restaurant.

My boyfriend and I ended up celebrating 8 years together in Oakhurst during our roadtrip through California, and we were kind of settled on the idea of not doing any fine dining at all, since we did not plan to be anywhere specific on the date. Luckily the small city of Oakhurst had a nice chateau with a lovely restaurant... More

The food and service at Erna's is fabulous. We just had an incredible dinner there. On the table was a special menu, with our name on it, designed just for us with our food restrictions in mind. Each of the many courses was beautiful and delicious. The service was impeccable without being pretentious. While the European style dinning room does... More

An excellent experience. Each selection was beautifully plated and included an enticing blend of flavors and textures. The wonderful wine selection and quality service created a meal to remember.

Our food was nice, the service was fairly good and the evening overall was most enjoyable and memorable for the right reasons. However I cannot rate it excellent because at the price ($108 per head for food alone) and the restaurant's aspiration, it is "off the ball" in various minor but telling ways. Examples: food was just a bit too... More

Erna's Elderberry House is a five star restaurant. It has a European old world ambiance, quiet, elegant and special. The food is thoughtfully plated so that you will enjoy each item on your plate. Quality wines in abundance. Fountains outside. The holidays are especially notable with twinkling lights to greet you at the entrance and special items offered for your... More
