It was ab-so-lutely wonderful. The food was amazing. Mac and cheese for breakfast anyone. Oh yes I did and I was glad. Brunch of course let's you sample a spoon of everything that you wouldn't have an opportunity to do with a standard order or even in a tappas format. Salmon, oysters, waffles, prime rib, oh my...

I have been visiting Yosemite for over 50 years. As a child we got to have breakfast at the Ahwahnee once during our week long visit --a real highlight. In later years my husband and I have enjoyed breakfasts there and often dinner. We don't mind the high prices because it was worth it to enjoy the food and the... More

We ate in the dining room as part of the Vintner's Holiday package and found the food to be simple excellent. Beautifully prepared and served by a very competent staff. Portions were appropriate for this multi-course meal.

We had dinner and breakfast in the dining room. The dinner was fantastic and the service was excellent. Breakfast was also delicious. You can't beat the view from the dining room, the majestic mountains surround you...magical. Reservations are strongly recommended for dinner. The only thing that seemed odd was the way they seat you. We had reservations for 6pm, got... More

Service for beverages and dish clearing was very attentive. Make a day of it by driving about the park after brunch. I would have rated it excellent if the buffet food selection... More

This dining room is in the most beautiful, historic, and expensive hotel in the park. If you chose not to stay here, you can still partake of the atmosphere by enjoying a meal here. We had a brunch, which , of course, was amazing, and you can stroll the hotel and see the various historical displays and enjoy it's ambience.... More

We ate several meals here throughout the day. The food was always very good. The service was efficient and friendly. The windows opened to trees surrounding the hotel.

We stayed at the Ahwahnee and had read about the issues people had getting into the restaurant so I pre booked dinner for the three nights months in advance which was a very good thing to have done. I read about people complaining that the captain tells people who haven't booked that they have to wait for a table when... More
