“Extraordinary Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

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 the world. Portions were just right, flavoring was superior, and the chef has a great imagination! The wines were all excellent and perfectly suited to the dishes. One doesn't normally expect a restaurant of this quality in a somewhat casual mountain town like Oakhurst, but if you want a truly outstanding and memorable meal, plan to stop by and enjoy one here. Be warned -- it's pricey, but in my opinion it's worth every penny.

“Fab Food”

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

“A Very Unique Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

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 and ensured our meal was amazing. It was the most unique dining experience.

“One of the best resorts in the world..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

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, really pretty interior decor, everywhere you go is just beautiful..! One can enjoy the outdoor pool area, as well as the romantic chateau garden with a little lake and pavillion. Erna is just lovely and the staff is the sweetest staff I encounted to this day. The food there is the best, the restaurant is probably one of the best I ever went to. Furthermore there´s world class luxery spa with all the treatments you could ever want. And yoga too. We didn´t want to leave the chateau, not even to go and see the reedwoods that we came there to see. Highly recommended.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

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.
