Great venue, and amazing staff. Worked with me and my family to produce a great wedding. No hitches on the day of the event, and if there were, we didn't know about them (which is the way a wedding should be.) They worked well with all of my other vendors, many of which were not vendors who regularly work with this venue. The wedding coordinator was great and it was exactly what I wanted. Very intimate setting, with a unique and whimsical feel.
Thank you for a great wedding!

Highest praise is in order for this restaurant. We hosted a 80th birthday luncheon which required extensive dietary restrictions. Carina, Special Events Coordinator was so helpful to provide all our special needs, even arranging a conference call with Chef Jonathan to review and discuss the menu options and dietary requirements. Chef Jonathan is outstanding; he graciously and calmly addressed all our dietary needs and created the most tasty and lovely meals! We highly recommend this restaurant.

We have been to Erna's twice and could not be happier with them. Carina and the whole staff went above and beyond each time. The food and service is out of this world. They do everything well.
I have two anecdotal examples of Carina going the extra mile. First, my wife had a button pop off her dress as we arrived and within 30 seconds Carina had a sewing kit and the button was back on. Second, we received a handwritten Christmas card from Carina 6 months after our wedding. I live in SF and am from NY and cannot think of a better place I have been to. I hope to go back for our anniversary.
