Do not miss the opportunity to dine at Erna's. My wife and I just returned from 2 weeks in France and dined at Michelin one and two starred restruants. Erna's can hold their own with the best of them. Go to France and you will see what a bargin Erna's 5 course price fixe menu is. You won't find... read more

Restaurant serves excellent food and service is commendable. The view is awesome but it is kinda pricey though. For the 4 of us, it's about $100 pp including the tip. It was a very nice experience on Mother's day.

Located in Oakhurst, it is the best restaurant within many miles, and well worth the visit. Combined with a stay in the associated hotel, Chateau du Sureau, it is an unforgettable experience.

Located in Oakhurst, a gateway community on the way to Yosemite, Erna's Elderberry House and its companion hotel/spa, Chateau du Sureau, offer exceptional food and accommodations and are well worth visiting whether or not Yosemite is in your plans.

Erna's Elderberry House is exceptionally fine dining, and a meal there is an event. Fortunately, distance and price make it an uncommon, plan-ahead special event. The location near Yosemite is beautiful, the staff is extremely attentive and pleasant. And what to say about the food? There is a pris fixe five course menu or a 3 course menu, or special... More

From the moment you arrive you are made to feel welcome. Service was spot on. We dined on a Tuesday when they offer their locals menu as well as their regular one. The locals menu is quite the relative bargain so if you are there on a Tuesday you might want to consider it.

We were familiar with the Mountain House in Wawona for many trips to Yosemite. We have never stayed there but got a tour and was there for brunch. I felt like a princess with all the beautiful decor and elegance there. The food was top notch and have this place on my bucket list to stay.I can tell this was... More

A truly delightful experience. The atmosphere conjured images of old Europe while still offering the iconic pines of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Dinner was fantastic, the food was presented beautifully and the flavors danced eloquently across my palate. My date dined gluten free, her food was so well put together and planned out, we never felt as though we were... More
