We always like to come here for lunch as you don't need to "dress up" for lunch. Prices are not bad, service is superb, food is always wonderful. Worth a visit.

One of the highlights of our annual visit to Yosemite is treating ourselves to a delicious dinner in the Ahwahnee Dining Room. The room itself is unlike any other - just spectacular! The service is personal and attentive, the food delicious and the most difficult decision you'll make is which desert to select!

Food is excellent as is the atmosphere with the piano and fantastic decorations. It is expensive, but worth it for the experience.

This is a dining room on a grand scale, the setting is befitting of the grandeur of the Park. One could say, dining here is a life enlarging experience, the views,the food and set staff are all remarkable.

One and a half hours from Bass lake or Oakhurst. Call before going for reservations. After a breathtaking beautiful drive you arrive at the Awanhnee hotel. Very good service. Every table has a view. Very large windows. Lunch consist of soup,salads,very large sandwiches,delicious looking hamburgers,a pasta or two and a couple of fish dishes. I chose the trout which was... More

We had brunch the day after Thanksgiving by means of having had Thanksgiving dinner at noon, and only a nack in the eveing. So we were ready to feast by 10 the next morning. Lavish food in all categories, great service, good value though expensive.

When you walk in the first time, you'll likely be stunned. The room is impressive and opens up with huge windows looking out at the granite mountains and beautiful woods. The food is very good and fairly pricy, but it's vacation. Worth a visit.

Lengthy waits, slow service, mediocre food and a gorgeous setting best describe the dining room at the Ahwahnee Hotel. It used to be absolutely fabulous until a huge corporation took over the operation. Now the menu choices are unusual, for sure, but that doesn't hide the food inadequacies. Drink refills are sparse, when available. The restaurant brags about making its... More
