This place is overrated. We made reservations for 7. They wanted us there by 6:30. There were only 10 people in the whole place. Turns out the chef wanted to go home early to be with his kids. Our meal was a joke. Farm to Table ? Mashed potatoes with chuncks of potatoe in the center, small pieces of pork/ham... More

Recent lunch with a friend was quite perfect. I hadn't been here in quite some time and was not disappointed. Service is spot on but reservations are recommended. We opted for the special soup of the day -mushroom bisque very good. An appetizer of roasted garlic with brie was wonderful . Entree lunches of crab cakes and vegetarian penne pasta... More

All my wife wanted for our anniversary was "a special lunch, where we could sit outside in the sunshine with a view, have a glass of wine and have Creme Brule for dessert." Ha! No pressure! Long story short, I found Elderberry Pond and scored a perfect 10! The outdoor veranda was spot on. The service was excellent and the... More

Beautiful restaurant that provides both indoor and outdoor seating with a view. The menu has a large selection of fresh, local foods. Everything was delicious and the service was great. We will definitely be back!

We decided to celebrate our anniversary (26!) @ this elegant farm to table restaurant in the middle of nowhere . Needless to say, we enjoyed every aspect of this dining experience. Food was fresh, plentiful and expertly prepared and delivered by knowledgeable, yet friendly and efficient staff. Furthermore, we felt the price was quite reasonable especially considering the quality and... More

What an adorable place to celebrate with a meal. Fresh ingredients, gorgeous wood work. I had the eggplant and my husband had the chicken both of our meals were outstanding. A small salad with a dill dressing that was so fresh. We will definitely be back. The service was great as well.

A little out of the way from Skaneateles, but worth the trip. Beautiful farm setting that can be seen from just about every table. The food was every bit as good as we had hoped it would be reading their web site. Every dish was a hit including the sides -- smashed potatoes, string beans, the salads, all tasted as... More

This was one of the restaurants my husband and I chose while in the Finger Lakes area to celebrate our anniversary. When we got there, we were given the option of sitting inside or outside on the deck. We chose the outside deck and it could not have been more pleasant, sitting out among the birds and trees. The restaurant... More

In a beautiful country setting with in and outdoor seating. Food is organically grown. Nice wine selection. Menu Varied for lunch- salads, burgers, sandwiches. I've never had dinner there. Lunches are reasonably priced but on the high side for dinner. Portions are okay but not huge. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.
