A night and meal for the ages on Oct. 19, 2014 at the Elderberry House, as part of the celebration of the restaurant's 30 years in business and of 60 years for the Relais & Chateux group. Proprietor Erna Kubin-Clanin simply wowed all in attendance from start to finish, with guest Grand Chef Toni Mörwald from Austria leading the multi-course... More

Tried 2 different tasting menus on 2 separate nights while staying at Chateau du Sureau, and both meals were absolutely amazing! Hard to believe that this kind of quality and creativity can exist outside of a major city. Erna's was the culinary highlight of our 2 week trip to California. Highly recommended!

My husband and I travel to Erna's Elderberry House every few years. To give ourselves a treat this October, we spent four nights at Chateau du Sureau and four fantastic dinners at Erna's Elderberry House. Each meal was completely different, filled with delightful visual, texture, taste, and wine pairing surprises. The wines matched beautifully, which doesn't often happen in wine... More

If you want a Truly Pretentious Restaurant with No Substance, Erna's Elderberry House is the Right Place for You. I will start this out by saying that I am easy to please, and I eat anything. Well, anything except one of the hor d'oeuvres served at Aug 28, 2014 dinner that cost $350 (with tip) for myself and my new... More

This was an excellent dining experience. The food was delicious prepared for a queen. Everything was professional, excellent presentation, and reasonable for a prefixed menu. Tops!

We enjoyed a lovely dinner. Was a nice break from most of the average restaurants in the area. Service was excellent, food was extremely creative, and a very cozy, romantic atmosphere. Highly recommend this place - it's a hidden treasure!

This restaurant is associated with the Chateau du Sorel and is every bit as great as the Chateau. The menu is fixed price, and wine pairings are available. We ate there two nights and both were great. There is a small bar at the front which has a great "feel" to it. The service was very attentive without being overbearing... More

My husband and I have eaten here several times, but this time was different. We stayed at the Chateau and celebrated our alone time before we have our first child. I was 5 months expecting when we dinned at Erna's. They knew ahead of time that I would have some food restrictions which they made me different items than the... More

Delicious food served here by the owner/chef. Each night set menu of approximately 5/6 courses, if there is something you don't like, they will offer an alternative, or just take 2/3 choices. Food was innovative delicious & excellent quality.

My husband and I have eaten here twice. Both times for anniversaries. The food here is just so good I would volunteer to work in the kitchen just to learn how to make meals like theirs.
