We had the pleasure of having a breakfast, a lunch, and a dinner at the Ahwahnee Dining Room and they were all wonderful. The food was delicious, the ambiance was fantastic and the wait staff was great. It's pricey, bit it's worth it!

Lunch was terrific. Variously described by the members of my party as the best burgers they've ever tasted; service was impeccable; dessert was irresistible; and the bill was unavoidable. We showed up without reservations on a slow afternoon and were promised a table (which was being cleaned) in 10 minutes; after 30 minutes, we inquired about a table, were informed... More

If you are in Yosemite Valley then your choices are limited for dining. We had hiked up Half Dome and wanted to treat ourselves to a great meal for our efforts. The Ahwahnee Dining Room was indeed expensive but the food was just ok. There wasn't anything on the menu that was creative or inventive and the food while not... More

We were not guests at the hotel but we managed to get a reservation for 5 for dinner a few weeks in advance. When we called to confirm our 6 pm reservation for 4 people, they had us down for 5 people at 5:45. We thought this was odd but we were able to change it. However, when we got... More

Our party of 6 was seated quickly, about 5:45 pm. Service started out decent, but deteriorated. We ordered several appetizers and 5 cocktails. They delayed my husband's drink quite a while. When appetizers arrived they were excellent. Eventually our dinner order was taken. I ordered the prime rib, rare to medium rare. It came out medium well, dry and tough.... More

Our family of 5 had an amazing meal. Our 3 daughters ages 14,16 and 19 all found a meal they liked (despite the fact that they are picky eaters.) I enjoyed the trout and my husband liked his perfectly cooked swordfish. 2 of the girls split the filet and shrimp meal. Crazily priced at $52 but easier to take at... More

The kids will think it looks like Hogwarts with all the candles - and it does. Spectacular setting, exceptional service, very expensive. But go once if you can. Reservations essential.

We stayed at the Ahwahnee for a weekend in January. Our first morning we had breakfast here (>$25 per pax) and were seated by one of the big windows that overlooked the grounds and cliff faces. It's a warm, rustically gorgeous dining room with beautiful decor and high ceilings. It was almost 10am and the crowd had eased much to... More

What a place. If you go to Yosemite, treat yourself, you wont be disappointed. The place itself is amazing in a fantastic setting. As for the food, you genuinely couldn't get any better anywhere in the world.

I'd especially like to mention about how wonderful the pianist was. I should've asked his name, or even for an autograph. There are many restaurants with good food, wine and service, but very few that also plays great, comforting music and this was definately one of them! Our trip would've been very different without him! 絵本から飛び出してきたような穏やかなピアニストが「エリーゼのために」などとともに、「たなばたさま」をさらりと弾いて癒してくれました。聞けば、西宮市と交流プログラムをやっておられるかたなのだとか。料理、ワイン(Stony Hill)、サービスも素晴らしく、充実した量と、持ち帰りができる点、園内は深夜でも無料送迎を呼んでもらえることを考えると、決して高額ではないと感じました。部屋代は高い宿ですが、私たちのように、食事にだけ訪れるのもおすすめです。もう少し早めに行って、テラスでカクテルを飲んでもよかったと思いました。
