I came here during the holidays and i am glad i made a reservation, they turned away everyone who came in the door without reservation. The food was pretty good.

We made reservations, since Saturday nights in Mammoth can get a little crowded. Great to have the Open Table option. Everyone loved their food: pretzel bites, steak, crab cakes, chicken pot pie, cream of zucchini soup, and eggnog cheesecake. The decor feels like a cozy mountain lodge and the service was good for a busy night. We will definitely eat... More

I have not had the food yet we had reservations and waited to be seated. We were excited about gluten free options. Majority of those options and main menu items were not available. Service slow.. I hope food can save this review so far I would not return Robertos Mexican is always busy and next door it's worth the wait.

I have been here for dinner many times, I think the quality of the food is pretty good...they could make a few minor improvements for the price...the salad dressings are all outstanding and home made...the salad itself should use green lettuce, not white crunchy stuff...also, bring some fresh hot bread without being asked...the prices of the entrees aren't inexpensive, so...

Have their hamburger! It was awarded as the best in Mammoth and I now know why. It's got my vote. Nice place for dinner with a very casual feel.

The menu is very diverse and has a variety of American type foods served with soup or salad. I would say this place attracts locals during the whole year which says a lot about a place in touristy type of town. I think they make that social connection and reach people on an emotional level and by the way the... More

Espectacular!!! We'll come back!!! We had a very good dinner and tasted one of the most delicious dessert in the world. It's a small restaurant but is a big place to stay.

This is a wonderful homely place. The menu had flair without being over the top and focused on local, in-season dishes. They had some unusual sangria combinations which I tried but for me they didn't beat the original red wine recipe. I wish we'd had room for desert!
