What an elegant dining room. The food was well prepared and served in an old time, sophisticated way. Really made you feel special. Had the duck and cavatelli meal as well as the swordfish. The chef did a fabulous job! Delicious!!

I like breakfast in the Ahwahnee Dining Room much better than dinner there. For $25 their breakfast buffet is a better deal if you want to load up on a meal that will carry you to dinner (skipping lunch). And you have the added bonus of dining in a pretty spectacular dining room. Breakfast buffet was good, not extensive, for... More

Great food and great service. Not cheap, but well worth the price. Definitely make reservations -- it books up fast. We had both breakfast and dinner here several times and enjoyed every meal.

When we left Fresno on our way to Yosemite the receptionist said "Don't miss having a meal at the Ahwahnee". We had lunch at the dining room which was expensive, but you got your money's worth. We came again on Sunday as my friend wanted to have brunch there, although I thouhgt $45 for brunch is too much. How much... More

Our car club went to Yosemite then came to the Ahwahnee Hotel brunch. We agreed that it was one of the best brunches any of us had experienced. The service was amazing. Not only did everyone have a smile on their face but they were right there trying to meet your every need. The food was outstanding in freshness and... More

in a first class hotel and park. You may find the prices for lodging at the Ahwahnee steep, but a dinner there while staying in the park is well worth the expense.

After two days of sightseeing around Yosemite National Park we decided to splurge on the Sunday lunch buffet at the Ahwahnee Hotel. Several friends had told us it was a must do on our trip and it didn't disappoint. The lobby and common rooms in the hotel are extraordinary. Huge rooms with very high ceilings, gigantic fireplaces, and beautifully decorated.... More
