We traveled to Yosemite to attend the Bracebridge Dinner at the Majestic Yosemite Hotel (grr, it is and always will be the Ahwahnee despite the trademark wars!) and wanted to dine outside of the hotel as we would be eating there for the rest of the weekend. So we happened upon Erna's Elderberry House on OpenTable and decide to try it despite the >1 hour drive from Yosemite Valley to Oakhurst that the trip would take. We were more than amply rewarded with a wonderful meal in a cozy beautiful dining room that was decorated for Christmas. The food was fantastic, the service was superb. The staff was smooth and gracious and we were greeted by a printed menu with our name on it and then received a delicious amuse bouche to start off our meal. This was followed by tasty bread and then by a wonderful 3 course meal (we chose the fresh fish as our entree, marvelous!, the restaurant offers a 3, 4 or 5 course tasting menu or selections ala carte). The waiters offered great suggestions as to the wine for my wife and provided me with a house made elderberry based sparkling nonalcoholic drink as I had to drive back to the Valley(sigh). The meal finished with a lovely dessert and great coffee. And as a final touch we were sent on our way with individual almond cranberry pastries to have with our coffee at breakfast the next day. An evening and meal worth every curve negotiated to and from !!!!
