We look forward every year to celebrating our anniversary at our favorite restaurant, Erna's Elderberry House! Their always changing and delightful menu, gracious presentation of ever changing and amazing courses coupled with the perfect wine paring is awesome. Then we move to the Patio next to the fountain for a personalized dessert with a perfect port followed with a Cappuccino.... More

Eating at Erna's isn't a normal meal that we typically eat in the United States. Most of us go to dinner, get our food, maybe have some wine and then we are on our way, but at Erna's it is more like an experience than dinner. When you eat at Erna's you sit back and relax, take your time, let... More

I am not a foodie but I know outstanding food, service and hospitality and this establishment is tops all on all these accounts. I was fortunate enough to eat here twice in the past week and the menu is different each visit. The Menu is a prixe fixe but you can opt for only the dishes you prefer. The first... More

In Oakhurst - Relais & Chateaux? That is what I was thinking - well - BELIEVE IT! What an amazing evening of gastronomique experience. The staff is very accommodating, and replaces bread and silver deftly, and keep the glasses full with grace. OK, but the food - among the best meals I have ever enjoyed. Our prix fixe was a... More

What can you say about a five star restaurant and lodging. Everything is a absolute exquisite. The wiropean atmosphere is stunning. A must visit to experience. Great for weddings and other special occasions. When you lodge you will be spoiled beyond. Spa and everything.

My wife and I spent four memorable days celebrating our wedding anniversary staying at Chateau du Sureau and dining at Erna's Elderberry House Restaurant. The lodging is exceptional with all of the rooms and the common areas featuring old world European artwork, furniture and decor. Clearly Erna has spent a great deal of time and effort seeing to it that... More

We enjoyed our two meals here while staying at the Chateau. The full tasting with wine pairings meals had a few miss-ques that shouldn't be part of a nearly $500 meal for 2! Service was very good.

This place absolutely deserves its five-star ratings! Every day it offers a different five or six course tasting menu. You have the option to order a la carte if you wish. We went with the six course tasting menu, adding the optional cheese course. Every item served was superb—whether fish, meat, salad, soup, bread, dessert, or amuse-bouche. The crepe-wrapped salad...

My wife and I dined at Erna's on Memorial Day weekend. This was a dining experience we will never forget. The fixed priced five course meal changes every night. I ordered the wine pairing with my meal and the wine choices were very complementary with the courses they were served with. A whole host of waiters tended to our every... More
