Best group dinner ever!!!!

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... read 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.

The two of us dined at Nevados for our 10th time. Busy, service excellent, my wife had the salmon, scallops entree (luke warm) and I had the lamb which was tasty. I had the mushroom soup which was very good and my wife had the beet salad which was full of flavor. Parking was rough since the bar scene is... More

This place was recommended and after 30 years of coming to Mammoth we had never tried it. It was outstanding - especially the pour they give you on your drinks...wow. The food was excellent and everyone in our party loved it. It was quite crowded during the happy hour times so getting a seat was tough, but well worth the... More

We loved our visit to Nevados. The food was creative, and delicious. The service was excellent--our waiter was very friendly and professional. Two of us ordered fish entrees, and these were cooked perfectly, and delicious. The best restaurant we have tried in Mammoth!

This ought to be in the top 5 or 6 restaurants in Mammoth Lakes. The food is very good and more interesting than most, with a Pacific Rim fusion thing in addition to the usual standards. We came back a second time. I would say to ignore the guy who thinks they turned the lights out on him--it is very... More

Tried to go here for dinner at 7pm. They shut off the lights on the outside of the building as we were looking over the menu outside instead of just coming out to say they had closed early. I wouldn't even go back to try it due to this rudeness.

Enjoyed the meal. Service was good and attentive. Don't be fooled by the unassuming exterior. This is worth the visit
