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. When we arrived we were given a menu for the evening with our names on top. /The year of our anniversary and the date.... More

We made reservations for dinner for the evening of August 28th, using open table, on or before August 13th. We had 2 email confirmations and 2 voice mail confirmations of our reservation. We drove well over an hour from Yosemite Park to get to Erna's Elderberry House that evening. When we arrived at Erna's Elderberry House, at 7:00 PM, the... More

We had a private room for the six of us. The room was beautiful and the service excellent. The five course pre-fix dinner was able to be modified to accommodate personal preferences, but we would have loved to have been told there was a three course option. Dinner for six was $1000 ... And way too many courses and too... More

Great meal ..... Absolutely delicious. You can read about how great with the other reviews. I will spend my brief review saying that I was traveling with our two children from Philadelphia. My wife and I are foodies and have eaten in Michelin starred restaurants worldwide. We were not going to pass up a meal at Erna's even with two... More

Beautiful restaurant, with Erna greeting and chatting with each guest. Pre-fixe menu was very pricey but a la carte selections were possible. And wine prices seemed a bit over the top. Food and service were excellent.

Every one "raves" about Erna's....Why? First thing..campaign with elderberry juice. I don't drink..Not everyone does. Second. You don't get a choice of many entrees on a Prix fixed dinner Or...you can have a steak...I can't eat beef, The courses were many and varied. But mostly not to my liking. I had the free range chicken that was very moist and... More

Once at Chateau du Sureau, you don't want to leave, so make dinner reservations, you will be so glad you did. Loved Erna's Elderberry House. As soon as we were seated on the patio, menu's of the night's offerings was delivered to our table. As we opened the menu, we noticed they were personalized with our names, that is a... More
