We were having some drinks at the Mountain Room Lounge and knew we wanted dinner, so I walked over and asked if there was a wait and if we should put our names in. The host was a little snotty but said there was no wait and that they didn't take names and it was first come first served. Sounds... More

Service was acceptable, but nothing above average. We had to wait a while for things we asked for and did not have as attentive service as we would have liked. The food was under-seasoned and over-salted - edible, but we only ate to satiety, not to fullness or enjoyment. I guess once you learn how to cook your standards go... More

She came, took order, and left. Set down food, and left, barely stopped to check on us, and when I did say something about the food, she stopped and made an excuse about it. Just too many little things that ruined the whole experience.

The food was amazing, the staff was amazing, the view was amazing! Couldn't have been happier! I would definitely come back to eat here again even if I was staying in another hotel!

We had our Thanksgiving dinner there. Were amazed at how friendly and cheerful our server was, despite having to work on Thanksgiving night. The restaurant is beautiful, with soft lighting and beautiful tall windows. The food was very good, and we loved it that the kids get the same choices as adults do, just in smaller portions. Dinner started with... More

Wait staff were nice but over worked. Food is smaller than expected for the price and quality is average. Would be worth if prices were ~40% cheaper but not at what they are now.

We visit this restaurant at least once a year and every year it is just the same. The decor, mid 60's wood and photographs well done, never changes. The service is always professional and friendly. And the meal, more than adequate and delicious. I could not finish the lamb shank and would have it again.

I visited Yosemite with two friends. We visited in early November, i.e. not "high season". Our first three nights we attempted to eat at the Mountain Room restaurant. The waiting time for a table ranged from 45 minutes one day, an hour and fifteen minutes another, and two hours the third night (we didn't wait that night, just went to... More

I just returned from three weeks travelling around United States and I can say that the only rude person that I met was in this restaurant. We were there on Monday, 27th October, for dinner with friends. We were along the first guests to arrive, so the restaurant was almost empty. A young waitress asigned us a table close to... More

Great atmosphere but the balance of the lunch was not the best in this exclusive hotel. Service was very slow and we ended up one wrong meal out of four. Food was acceptable but overpriced. We would not go back.
