We were told that dinner at The Ahwahnee was a "must". The hotel lobby and dining room are beautiful. I especially loved the table setting. Overall our food was delicious, and we enjoyed the lovely, not too loud, piano music. Service was good. However, everything is overpriced. Don't order the brussel sprouts! They arrived cold, dry, and without taste- an... More

The dining room immediately puts you in mind of the way people must have traveled and dined in the age of elegance. The room is huge but welcoming at the same time. Food and service are both excellent, the Sunday brunch is the most complete selection I've ever seen and is delicious.

The only way to eat in the main dining room at this hotel is to make a reservation, which we did ahead of our visit to the Park. The decor and architecture of the hotel and restaurant are stunning. The food here was way overpriced for what we received, however it was supremely delicious. The wait staff was attentive but... More

The food was fantastic as well as the service. The only negative thing was the air temperature was very cold. We even saw one of the patrons brought in their ski jacket and we were there in the heat of August!

It's a pleasure to sit there, they serve you like a king, every wish comes true. Very good wine list, you can make changes to the menu and you get it with a smile. The cannot cook Brussels sprouts, though.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary in Yosemite and treated ourselves to a Grand Brunch in the Ahwahnee. IT WAS SPECTACULAR! We had such wonderful food, completely delicious. Amazing and attentive service. There was a pianist which really set the atmosphere. A little pricey but worth every penny, we absolutely loved it.

Thought the years we have enjoyed many meals at the Ahwhnee Hotel Dining Room but were so disappointed with our last meal there. It's still expensive, as we remembered it to be, but the quality of food has gone down and the service was terrible!! We saw our waiter when we gave our order and that was it until we... More

Of course it's good. It's supposed to be. But my philosophy is that food can only be worth a certain amount, comprising the materials, imagination and skill in preparing. I felt that the cost of taking friends here was beyond what it should have been. Having said that, it was a lovely evening, and I'd probably do it again.

Had breakfast here and we were surprised that it was that expensive! We had the buffe and for the price we paid I must say we were not impressed with what was offered! The dining room is absolutely gorgeous but shame about the prices! Food was okej, nothing special.

We had a wonderful meal and experience. They had wikki stix for the kids to play with and had great kid choices too. The meal was white glove, 5 star and in a beautiful setting. Bring nice clothes for this meal and make reservations before you come to Yosemite. It's worth it
