Special Dinner

Great dining room in Historic location. Food was excellent, service could have been better--though maybe we caught our server on an off day.

We arrived for lunch at Ahwahnee. It was included in our tour of Yosemite. We had preordered our food and they escorted us to an awaiting table and served us within moments. The salads and sandwiches were fresh and delicious. The setting is beautiful. Take time to go outside in the courtyard and view Glacier Point from the ground.

Our group liked the breakfast buffet ($22) but the wait for menu items was too long--40 minutes! By the time we received our pancakes they were cold. Our waitress was less than adequate but I believe other wait staff was more attentive and on the ball.

While historic and beautiful, I didn't think it was worth it. The food is reasonable but not fabulous. Service was attentive and good.

The classic American National Park hotel, beautiful, large and impressive interior, friendly and courteous staff, good wine list and excellent food. An expensive evening, but worth it.

We had an excellent lunch in this grand dining room, with a soaring ceiling, huge windows, and lovely decor. The service was fantastic and the food was wonderful! I have never been disappointed in any lodge restaurant in a national park. They really have it right!

Elegant old hotel that is beautiful inside and out. Large windows allow you to enjoy the view while dining. Service was excellent. We were a large group of three tables yet service was efficient, friendly and coordinated. Would definitely recommend experiencing a meal here. The dining hall alone is worth it!

Everyone should take a stop in here, even if you can't get a room here. We had dinner and my husband's meal was fantastic and mine was so-so. I thought the trio of ice creams for dessert at $9 seemed steep. The beer and martini we ordered at the bar prior to dinner, at $26, was ridiculous. But, I guess... More
