As always, an excellent dinner.

We come here at least once every summer during out visit to Mammoth Lakes. This year we came twice. It's hard to believe that this outstanding restaurant exists out here nest to Convict Lake.

The Restaurant at Convict Lake is a starred find. At The Convict Lake Resort in the Mammoth Lakes area. I had a wonderful tender filet mignor and my wife had an excellent Scottish Salmon dish. Both were prepared to perfection. This is certainly worth the time and effort as one transits the Eastern Sierra front.

I have been dining at this quaint restaurant for over 20 years. The food and wine is consistently good and this time it did not disappoint. The portions are large so we shared entrees. We had for appetizer Roasted Garlic with Crostini-flavorful, Caesar Salad - very good, Beef Wellington-excellent, Filet Mignon-melted in your mouth, Belgian Chocolate Ganache-decadent. If there is...

I read reviews on the Poblano bisque but had no idea how great it was! Definetly the highlight of my meal and a recipe I must try to recreate. I had the Osso Buco which was slightly overcooked but still had fantastic flavor. Can't recall what the hubby had (maybe filet mignon) but he was beyond pleased with the meal.... More

Would have been a nice couples dinner but had the whole family ( parents, hubby, 2 kids and... More

We had an awesome, excellent time and meal. Sweet Potato with ginger soup, sea bass with parsnips puree, carrots pureed and roasted red onion. Fabulous, and I don't use that word much. For dessert, Steve our much appreciated waiter, suggested the Apple pie with carmel, marspone and home made ice cream. What a winner. The wine list is perfect. For... More

We had dinner at the restaurant one night and everything was impressive, especially considering the remote location. Beef Wellington was excellent and the Bananas Foster was both experiential and delicious. The food and ambience were so good we came back the next night and ate dinner in the bar.

We were staying at the Convict Lake Resort and as a winter special received a gift certificate as part of our package. The restaurant only serves dinner in the winter. We were seated next to the centralized island fireplace and with snow coming down and the sun setting it made for a very romantic atmosphere. The service was fantastic, in... More

This is not not first visit to this restaurant, but as it was my husbands birthday I wanted something special. WE got a booth next to a wonderful fireplace on this chilly night.

I took my wife here for her birthday and had called the restaurant in advance to let them know. Judging by the $35 main dishes, I expected excellence. We arrived early but we seated late, and the first thing the waiter said was that they had run out of the Risotto, which happened to be the only dish my vegan... More
