The food and the service were both great. It was not too bust when we were there. The view from the room is stunning .

Great food and super service. Really knowledgeable about the area. Beautiful views of the mountains from a huge floor to ceiling window.

Almost rivals the Ahwahnee Restaurant when it comes to the food and offerings; just missing the upscale feel and view, but a great option in the park.

We arrived at Yosemite Lodge at the Falls too late in the evening (after 8.30!) to eat at the Food Court but really enjoyed our snack at the Lounge. It was not at all crowded, very pleasant decor and an extremely helpful waiter. This is the bar for Yosemite Lodge at the Falls.

All said, it is slightly overpriced given that you can have essentially the same fare, but for less, at the food court 50 yards away. Not terrible food, but nothing to visit for.

The Mountain Room Lounge is in the Yosemite Lodge complex. Many of the reviewers below have confused this with "The Mountain Room" which is the restaurant next door. The lounge has a bar a central fireplace and does offer a very limited menu of chili, sandwiches, and some cheese and fruit plates. It is a great place to go for... More

I loved this one as as it was efficient and friendly service. It was more the kind of food I like to eat and you can have fresh fruit and vegetables. The surroundings were pleasing and relaxing. Much more pleasant than the queues and numbers of people in the food court. Once discovered we preferred to eat here.

This is our favorite casual dining place in Yosemite Valley. The food and staff are consistently good. The menu is small but the prices are good compared to other restaurants in Yosemite. Do ring the winter they have a nice fire going.

This lovely restaurant is not the cheapest but has a great view or Yosemite Falls if you can get a table near the window. The food is very good and is average value for a more up market meal in the park.

We ordered the Chicken Carbonara on pasta, consisting chicken that died a natural death (after a very long and vigorous life), paired with salted pork chunks (sure, it's almost like bacon), green beans (the best part), pasta and cheese sauce. To make up for the leathery, bland chicken the chef added copious amounts of salt, nutmeg, and very coarse ground... More
