After spending 4 days in the Chateau and eating breakfast and dinner every day at the restaurant I can firmly say I had the best food in California, it's way beyond what I had expected given the area is so remote. i was told the food would be amazing by a friend who recommended me to stay there but I...

We had the wine pairing. I don't know much about wines. But I can tell you this, all of these wines tasted amazing. The food was sooooo delicious too! It was our anniversary and they actually had our name on the menu! Such a nice touch! The chef brought out a special anniversary dessert for us. This is more than... More

Very elegant & dining room lovely with soft music. Wonderful service & enjoyed celebrating my birthday there. Too expensive to visit very much & food is very fancy & European so not my normal fare. Nice experience. Chef & server made us feel very welcome.

What a lovely evening my husband and I as well as our six other friends had last night at Erna's Elderberry House. The eight of us had an "In Vino Veritas" wine seminar in the bar area by the lovey daughter of Erna, Wine Director Renee-Nicole Kubin. What a treat. Her wine knowledge is vast and expansive. We all had... More

There is even a touch of high glamour in this extraordinary part of the world, courtesy of Erna’s Elderberry House, attached to her chic European-style hotel, Chateau du Sureau. It was almost surreal to eat there on the outskirts of sleepy, hick town Oakhurst with its wide streets and country locals. Erna’s is formal, grand and very sedate. After a... More

We were in Oakhurst for a few days at Yosemite. The weekend was rainy, so decided on a nice dinner place; based on the Trip Advisor recommendations, this seemed like the best choice. Parking was easy at the Château. The atmosphere was very elegant and European. Small dining room with a beautiful fireplace, paintings and romantic lighting. The service was... More

This restaurant is part of the Chateau du Sureau, a five star Relaix & Chateau lodging. It is a very special restaurant and the menu changes daily. My friend and I did the fixed price 5 course dinner and it was excellent. I compared it with the menu for the next day and nothing was the same. For our meal... More

We came here for our 20th anniversary celebration. We called a week before coming here to make our reservation. Staff was friendly and got us a table for 630 pm. The restaurant is absolutely gorgeous inside....feels like a French home. All the staff here we're amazing. Erica, our server, went beyond expectations explaining the six courses that were served.

We had two dinners at this restaurant, and both were among the finest we have had anywhere. We only found out about Elderberry House coincidentally because we booked several nights at the attached Chateau du Sureau. Because the menu varies, I won't comment on particular dishes, but I can note that everything we ate was prepared and seasoned to perfection.... More
