An America classic in an extraordinary setting. We were here for a special family birthday dinner while travelling, stayed elsewhere. In our rush to get in on time didn't realise the dress code. No problem says the maitre d, sir can see if there is something suitable in the cloakroom. Sure enough, the boys and I enter the cloakroom to... More

If you haven't been make plans to dine in the Ahwahnee during your visit to Yosemite National Park. Requires formal dress for dinner and reservations are a must. Staff is polished and on top of their profession. The menu is delightful with items to met anyone's diet. I had the Lamb Shank with a Cesare salad. The lamb was served... More

We liked the views, the service, and most of the food. The prime rib is overcooked so if you like yours medium, better order it rare and don't bother with the Yorkshire pudding---I sent mine back and the 2nd serving was just as overdone as the 1st one was. The swordfish was very tender and moist. The lamb was excellent... More

Amazing views, classic elegance, great food and live piano music each evening. Make a reservation before your trip as things book up early.

This restaurant is located in a hotel which is in Yosemite park. The restaurant has such an amazing view of nature. The dinning interior is very Medieval and large. The food is ok and service is not too impressive and the price is on the high side.

As foodies, we used to make the drive to Yosemite to dine at the Ahwahnee (and drive home the same night)! Now that we have a family, we decided to make a day trip into Yosemite (during a camping trip at nearby Bass Lake) to experience this incredible valley and also to dine at the Ahwahnee. Perhaps the expectations were... More

It's a beautiful setting and top hotel but the food did take a long time to arrive. Chlli con carne had no rice. We did have some unwelcome company in the form of squirrels. These were being indulged by visitors and no attempt to get rid by the restaurant staff. Pesky vermin.

My wife and I expected that having dinner here would be a highlight of our visit to Yosemite. We had reservations for two evenings. But while the room itself is lovely and the pianist added to the atmosphere, the menu was limited and very pricey. That would be OK if the food was worth eating, but it wasn't. My wife... More

Two adults one child - Friday night. Decor will remind you of The Shining for about 10 minutes then the class of the place will take over. Staff professional and knowledgable and food fantastic. If you can get a table, give it a go. It's not cheap, but quality rarely is. Also, the drive home in the dark will help... More

I love the look of the dining room. The food was tasty and our servers were nice. My 3 yr old went with us (being we were camping in the valley) and she had a good time with the little color sheet and twisty ties they gave her. The only slightly downfall was the amount of time it took. We... More
