Better than expected.

Better than expected fare for a national park. Expect to wait to get in. Service was above average. The atmosphere is average to above (a little loud).

Ate here last night, Paul was our server - very friendly and fun guy. I had ribeye, it was delicious, as was my trio of desserts. My wife loved her salmon and creme brûlée too. Highly recommended, with a reasonable bottle of wine and a tip, it was 150 dollars for two mains and two desserts.

Staying at the Yosemite Lodge in the heart of Yosemite Park was terrific, and though you don't expect to find more than buffet food or fast food in a national park, the Mountain Room restaurant was a real surprise. It gave us a chance to have a relaxing special dinner at the end of a day of hiking. the food... More

This restaurant had great food and service. The atmosphere was great and I highly recommend it to anybody. There is always a wait and they do not accept reservations unless you have a party of 6 or more.

Very late review for New Years Eve dinner! Booked well in advance as we weren't sure what else would be available, we were glad we did. The food was lovely and there was a great ambience although packed to the rafters. We had hoped there might be more on offer over dinner in way of entertainment as we didn't want... More

They don't take reservations, so we got in line just before 5:00 and were seated by 5:15. Beautiful view, good service. the filet mignon, lamb chops and duck were all well-prepared and delicious.

We always have a meal or two at the Mountain Room when we visit Yosemite It's not as fancy as the Ahwahnee, but definitely a few steps above the food court. The french onion soup was very good as were the filet and duck dishes. The duck was prepared very nicely with the skin crisp and flavorful. The filet was... More

The restaurant at the lodge was just OK in our opinion. It was not cheap and the food was good but not anything special. There aren't a lot of options in the park but for a little more money the Ahwahnee is much better food and atmosphere.
