WAY OVERPRICED - SNOOTY HOSTESS

Looked like it was going to be a good place. We walked in and were all but ignored by the snooty hostess. She finally acknowledged our presence, and said it would be a minute. She walked around, into the kitchen, came back out, talked to some employees, walked around some more, and finally came... read more

I know this is not the review that I wanted to provide, given that all the reviews for this place are so great. But I was truly surprised at how poorly made the lunch food was. Granted, I was looking for non-meat items on the menu, probably not the best thing to find in this place, but went in and... More

I arrived in Mariposa relatively late at night after getting in to SF from Chicago and driving straight up from the airport. I was tired, jet lagged, and hungry. The staff were friendly, helpful, and the food was good. Although probably better suited to couples and families rather than a lone traveller on a Cali road trip this restaurant was... More

I don't usually review restaurants but I feel so grateful for the meal I just had that I have to make an exception! I don't need to eat complicated foodie food all the time, but I absolutely can't get past poor quality ingredients. This place isn't trying to reinvent the wheel, which is a welcome change, as far as I'm... More

Awesome, awesome, awesome. We stayed in Mariposa 5 nights for our Yosemite hiking trip. We ate here 3 of the nights. That's how good it is. Unbelievable steak. I had that one night. I had their grilled chicken plate twice and that was fantastic as well. Not a bad meal on the menu. The salad and homemade yogurt dressing were... More

Ok so we’re thinking this is Mariposa kind if in the middle of nowhere right? … so let’s keep our expectations low. We were blown away by this place! The ambience is nothing fantastic, but the food was top grade – this was the one of the finest meals we had in all of California!! Steak and lobster tail was... More

My son and I went here after a long day at Yosemite NP...we were so thirsty all we had to drink was pitchers of water, but for dinner we both had Chicken Cordon Bleu and it was outstanding. The salad was wonderful and we were very satisfied...and great place to eat.

the steak was delicious and the staff were very nice and efficient. We also went for brunch our last day and had a big group and all food arrived at almost the same time. I highly recommend it.

Ate here based on reviews and not disappointed. A little slow in taking our orders but other than that service was good. Based on other reviews we split a main course and got an extra soup. The soup and salad were both yum. The rib eye steak was outstanding. Possibly the best I've had. We shared the cheesecake for dessert... More
