Excellent food. Excellent service. Prices are a little inflated. Reservations were required for meals but if one did not have the foresight to make a reservation, the staff tried to accomodate the custormers.

the view is awesome and better in day. The food is great and the service is outstanding. We had three meals here this trip and they were all great but the 5 course chef dinner with wine pairing was the best yet. The cf was from the Plummed Horse in Saratoga. The Certified Beef strip was amazing as was the... More

Was there at a superb time when the dining room (lunch) was only 1/10 full. Service was excellent. The vegetarian onion soup was unforgettable and the blue cheese burger was also very good. The website is very easy to use, making it simple to get a reservation. The hotel itself seemed to be in a bit of renovation that carried... More

Quality control is lacking. Southwestern chicken salad had too much chili pepper; salad on evening special was wilted and masa cakes were dried up flavorless pucks.

I came for breakfast rather than the famous brunch as I expected it to be a better value, given the reviews. It's not a huge buffet but the items that are probably made on the premises (e.g., waffles, muffins) were excellent. Some of the other things were a bit feeble (packaged yogurt). The bacon (a guilty pleasure) was excellent. I've... More

We had dinner and Sunday brunch here. Service was beyond compare, and an amazing menu. The Brunch lived up to its reputation

Warm, friendly young wait staff we enjoyed: nothing was too much trouble for them. Food was grand - as much as you wanted and all great tasting. I very strongly recommend having a meal at this beautiful place!

Expensive but so worth it...a beautiful room. The dinner itself could have been better, but breakfast was delicious. Well worth going.

We have dined at the Ahwahnee many times. The setting is unique and rustically elegant. We love "dressing" for dinner (and wish others would respect the dress code as well). The food is consistently excellent and the long-time staff are attentive and gracious.

Beautiful dining room. Live piano to add class good menu generally although they had little knowledge of the cheese board appetizers that should have been the clue as it wasn't good. Salads were good and steak excellent. Service first night great. Second night average. Waiters decided by seniority rather than service delivered. Definitely a mistake Overall good experience
