Thumbs up to setting, decor, imaginative menu, and quality of dishes prepared. Presentation is top notch with flavors never disappointing. Go, enjoy, relax & savor. Well worth the price and investment of your time.

A quiet restaurant setting in what seems like an old barn/farmhouse, providing a rustic, yet elegant environment. Went with another couple after a fun day at the Finger Lakes wineries, for a great capper. Featured uniquely cultivated appetizers (I had sausage stuffed mushrooms in marinara...More

Elderberry Pond is a beautiful little spot totally off the beaten path. The restaurant uses its own freshly grown ingredients and the menu is based on those ingredients. We went with a large group of people and they were able to accommodate. If it located...More

In the rolling, wooded farm country of central NY, this is a charming venue. Large tables, lots of space, out door dining, too. Waitstaff young and eager. Nice menu. Delicious food. I had a chilled tomato soup which was superb. All of the main courses...More
