Pizza

Pizza was tasty and satisfied the entire family. It was easy and close to our room. The cost was a little high.

We spent one night here, and expected to be disappointed as there was no competition for food. We were however delighted with the service from Gavin, who was very attentive and polite, and the food - clam chowder to start , and the best steak I have had in a long time - was absolutely superb. Well done!

We stayed a Yosemite View Lodge for two nights, one we had the pizza and second night we ate here. We had the pasta dish, which was really disappointing. It was really overcooked an turned to mush when you tried to pick it up. The staff were ok but not great by California standards. I would go for the pizza... More

I ate here with my mother, and we agreed on a few things, but... We really liked this restaurant for its location (nestled in the woods near a beautiful waterfall). We enjoyed the very high ceilings and matching windows. As you might imagine, the food was pricey. I loved my food (fish), but my mother could not get her steak... More

We ate here on two occasions. The first visit was just coffee and cake but the second visit was very disappointing.The staff were unhelpful and the menus and food were not clearly displayed. It was all very rushed and the food was poor quality.

After a long walk to the top of Nevada falls and very wet descent, the restaurant provided some well-needed, good quality food and warmth. Although there is limited space for the numbers staying at the lodge, we had only a 15 minute wait and good service once we were called. The bar area was busy but we managed to get... More

Avoid at all costs! Food was dreadful. Service is quick, but that is probably due to items being under-cooked by an overwhelmed kitchen staff who have no place working in a kitchen if I am honest. It is a lawsuit ready to happen.

That seems to be the way the owner behaves. It is not staffed properly and the food is cafeteria quality. The people working at the restaurant do work hard but they simply do not have the support of management/ownership. They are only open a couple of hours for breakfast and then open at 5:30 for dinner. No coffee shop on... More

Excellent food and very good service. There is also a pizza restaurant on site as well. If you stay at the Yosemite View Lodge, this is as convenient as it gets. I guess when you leave the park and if you want food to go, this pizza is perfect. They do have outdoor tables as well. The restaurant's outdoor seating... More

We went with our friends and all of us had excellent meals. The menu is limited -- but I'm sure that you will find something that you would like. We had the trout and it was excellent and the serving was just the right amount. Price was just a little high but, consider where you are. You don't have to... More
