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

This restaurant does provide an extraordinary dining experience. The service is perfect -- very polite, attentive and helpful waiters -- and the facility is simply beautiful and very tastefully furnished and decorated. But My Oh My! The meal itself -- a food/wine pairing offered on the menu -- was one of the best meals I have ever had, anywhere in... More

So many courses and so many different tastes put together by the talented Jonathon Perkins and overseen by the gracefully elegant Erna. A truly memorable night

Recommended to us by the Yosemite Sierra View Bed and Breakfast, Erna's provided everything and more for our anniversary dinner. Complete with celebratory touches to make our anniversary feel special, the service was spectacular and the food divine. We particularly enjoyed dessert on the patio and the opportunity to sit and relax on the lovely grounds. Erna herself greeted guests... More

We were planning to go and see the Yosemite National Park, and booked a random place to stay near by the park. We had no idea. This chateau must be one the best resorts in the world. Great location with v e r y nice scenery, beautiful view of pine trees and the nature around. The chateau is good situated,... More

The food is truly amazing. Which was another reason for visiting this restaurant again. We did a food and wine pairing which was great, as we were able to try so many different wines which were fantastic.

The food was truly amazing and paired with wine made it really special, as we tasted wines we wouldn't normally had the chance to. We visited this restaurant in 2007 and had to come back.

My husband and I have been wanting to eat here since it opened 30 years ago and we finally made it ... we were not disappointed. Truly a special experience! It is expensive, but so worth it. We chose to have the wine pairing with each course and I highly recommend doing that if you enjoy wine. The meal was... More
