We went to Nevados based on the recommendation of our hotel staff. It turned out to be a very enjoyable experience. The service was very friendly and prompt. The waiter responded with a big “yes” with a smile on his face when my wife made special requests for the preparation of her meal and it turned out great. I had... More

We've dined here for many years and dinner has always been terrific. It is on the high end of the price range, so I would get the kids a pizza and keep them home.

I never take the time to submit reviews but Nevados deserves it. I admit that I had low expectations since downtown Mammoth Lakes doesn't do anything for me. My wife and I went to Nevados because it had some good reviews on tripadvisor. I'm always suspicious of these reviews for fear that they're plants, whether positive or negative, although tripadvisor... More

With a good menu selection our party of three easily found interesting meals that were cooked to a very high standard. The portion size was large given the high quality of the food so we only ordered 1 desert; that we shared between 3; and were glad that we did as we were all stuffed by the end of meal.... More

This restaurant was packed and bustling, with standing room only at the bar. This is clearly a local favorite, and I can see why. The service was excellent and every item we ordered was delicious. My husband loved the tuna sashimi poke tower. I had chicken breast over the house salad of field greens with pears, dried cranberries, candied walnuts,... More

Our ski club group of 32 enjoyed a fabulous 3 course dinner at Nevados the first week in March. Tim Dawson, the owner, was a dream to work with to set it up. He offered us 3 first courses, 4 main courses and 2 desserts. Everyone said it was the BEST dinner they had ever had while traveling with our... More

Nevados is a standard in Mammoth. And for good reason. The food is always delicious bordering on gourmet. The presentation is excellent. Service is flawless. The Kung Pao Lettuce Bowls have just the right amount of spice for an appetizer. The Wasabi Pea Tuna is a nice respite from the typical ski area fare. The Chocolate Menage a Trois for... More

The owner Tim has really got it down. Whether your greeted by son Clay, wife Laurie or Tim, they all make you feel at home. My wife and I have dined at Nevado's dozens of times and we always can count on a great meal, great service and personal attentiveness by any of the family members. Last but not least,... More

Tried Nevados and was pleasantly surprised. Food selection is good and tastes even better. The service is attentive without being intrusive. Osso bucco was outstanding. A bit pricey overall, but you won't walk away hungry or disappointed.
