    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Elderberry House! The food and whole experience was amazing. The servers all made us feel like we were the only 2 people in the restaurant. The attention to detail did not go unnoticed. We can’t wait to come back on our next trip to Oakhurst.😊

    For a 7 course gourmet Thanksgiving dinner and the price, I would have expected better. Some of the food was outstanding. The Turkey breast was actually Turkey loaf and it was exceptionally salty. I placed my reservation over a month before the meal and asked for Gluten Free as I am Celiac and I felt I was short changed on the meal where they eliminated the Gluten portion and didn't even consider creating alternative options. The service was inconsistent as we had to keep asking for cutlery and they messed up the bill, forgetting to charge us for drinks at the bar and when we pointed it out they 'thanked us for our honesty' and gave us $10 off on a $500 meal. Overall, the meal was overpriced for what we received both in food and service.

    Edna’s Elderberry Houde has become a part of my Yosemite visit these last few years. I’ve heard about this place ever since I was young and has always wanted to dine here. The food and the service are impeccable. Fine dining and gorgeous Yosemite: my two favorite things in life.

    The Elderberry House is a very special place in a surprsing location. It is outstanding in every way. The only down side is that it is very expensive and the current menu is limited with selections (likely COVID related) for now. They do anticipate some changes that will fix this issue however. The atmosphere, service, and food is remarkable, especially where it is located. Great for a special occasion.

    Excellent service and food. From reading other reviews I was afraid to order the scallops, thinking they wouldn't fill me up, but with all the other courses I was stuffed. I'm so glad I ordered the scallops because the presentation and the dish (textures and flavors perfectly complimented each other) itself were excellent Also, I couldn't stop eating the bread because it was so delicious and unique. If you have a heartier appetite I recommend the 4 course dinner, and fill up on the bread.

    This was our first experience with fine dining, and it was impeccable. Our server, Jake L, was fantastic and made the dining experience the best it could possibly be. I have to eat gluten free and the Elderberry House was beyond accommodating. They knew as soon as I sat down that I had a dietary restriction and with every dish, Jake told me how it had been adjusted to make sure I could eat everything safely. We also highly recommend the sommelier wine pairing. It enhanced the already delicious food so that you can truly get the most out of this experience.

    Very disappointed in the overall experience. Limited menu with very small portions. Drinks were overpriced and small pours. I expect a restaurant that claims to be fine dining to have a dress code. T-shirts and sneakers should not be allowed. We waited over 20 minutes from the time our dinner plates were cleared to be served dessert. Then we were slapped with a surprise 20% service fee. Not worth the time or the cost. Save your money and go to the Oakhurst Grill and Whiskey 41 Lounge

    Overall It was a tremendous experience. The wait staff was very polite and knowledgeable. The water boy did seem inexperienced, when he poured the water into our glasses it was literally splashing out. We don’t drink alcohol, but had it been a bottle of wine it would have been a bigger problem. We are a family vacation and we appreciated the restaurant accommodated our 9 year old. Unfortunately they didn’t have a kids menu option or smaller portion. Would recommend the restaurant, it was a fun experience.

    About the food: It was average not worth the $450 we spent. The soup was too creamy with so many spices that it was hard to make up the taste of the soup itself. The tuna tartar was blend at best, and the ONE (not kidding here) scallop was lost in a cornucopia of other stuff that did not quite mesh with it. Don't order the cold and tasteless carrot tarte. Order the chocolate stuff. A ruined anniversary in a place we don’t recommend. About the place: We truly felt not treated equal, even discriminated in this place. We were here for our anniversary, which they had noted. When we arrived, we were seated in a wobbly tabletop by the outdoor bar door where we couldn't place the slightest pressure on it without having the water fly out of our glasses. We pointed it out to our server who kindly offered to move us to a table in a nicer part of the room. However, she was overruled by the manager who said the only table available was the worst located table in the room smack on the crossroads of the entrance, service area and outdoor bar door. We accepted without complaining as it was obvious the manager did not like us for one reason or the other and were not about to let her ruin our special night. The worst part was watching other available tables in much more quaint areas of the room being given to every couple who came in after us (4 of them), and worst, seeing the table the server wanted to seat us, but the manager did not want to give it to us being unoccupied all night. By the way the wobbly table was not given to anyone else after that.

    Dinner started well. For the entree, I ordered the scallops. That’s scallops with an “s”, as in more than 1. I RECEIVED ONE (1) SCALLOP. And that single scallop was not prepared in such a way that you would say to yourself, “OMG! It’s amazing!” Very disappointing.

    Very disappointed in this restaurant. Though the service was great - very well trained staff, the food was just not good. It was a prefix menu and of course not a lot of option. Risotto with truffle had no taste at all - the truffle did not even have the distinct truffle smell. Steak was as tender or flavorful as you would think given that it had some sort of sauce. Also it was 2 tiny little pieces. Everything was served in a huge plate and super tiny portion. Would definitely not recommend this place

    We celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary, a special evening in a special place. We had the four course meal with paired wines. Outstanding! I brought a 1978 Bordeaux and our waiter was excellent at removing the cork, decanting and pouring. A very leisurely atmosphere with most excellent staff and meal. It was worth the 3 1/2 hour drive from the Bay Area.

    Excellent food and atmosphere. The staff was very attentive and enjoyable. The price is high, but the quality is very good. I would go back, but only on special occasions. It is a place that asks a lot $$ wise, but delivers on an excellent dining experience. I would recommend highly if you have the pocket book.
