Apparently people used to faint so they installed air conditioning and it can be quite chilly if you are in the path of an icy breeze. Nice service and the food was good - breakfast staff were lovely!

We stayed and dined at the Ahwahnee a few years ago and enjoyed it so much we returned. This trip we did breakfast before hiking out for the day and felt the lodge really set the tone for our day. The breakfast buffet was average for a nicer hotel as was the service. The view from our window seat made... More

The Ahwahnee experience is not complete without dining in their incredible world famous dining room. The architecture is stunning! The service is gracious. But, the best part is the food. I had the smoked duck pasta. I ordinarily don't care for cream sauces, but this was so light and delicate that the flavor of the duck shown through easily. My... More

On our last trip to Yosemite several years ago we reviewed this great establishment and commented that it had gone down hill with respect to food, service and overall value. What brings you back is Yosemite Valley and the views. This time we were seated right up next to the air conditioning unit which was a real pain and you... More

Upon hearing it was our anniversary the maitre d said that they would seat us at the Honeymoon Table! This special spot was next to the large window at the far... More

A very expensive restaurant, but worth the special treat. I came here twice, I was so impressed. The first time, I came here for dinner, which was absolutely spectacular. The pianist is extremely skilled and adds a wonderful touch to the ambiance. Service was wonderful. They were polite and attentive. The food was exceptional, to say the least. Delicious entrees....

What can I say that has not been said, I will never forget this magnificent room and the wonderful service and delicious food. We are not the brunch crowd-served buffet, and looked good-we ordered off the menu; pan fried trout, chocolate cake-with gold slivers, pies, coffee. Everything our little hearts desired. So happy I could have this memory with my... More

Yes, it is ultra expensive but worth it as a "special occasion" meal. Prices were about $10 more per entree than what I would spend at home. $42 Queen cut prime rib, $45 duck special, $9 for side salad. Food was well-prepared and we enjoyed our evening as we marvelled at the elegant dining room and listened to the pianist.... More

Managed to get a table for two at this historic hotel that to get a room you have to book a year in advance. Not inexpensive but lovely setting for drinks outside and very attentive service.
