Dinner was fabulous. We ordered the 3 price fix dinner for 2. Steak was cooked to perfection and with salad or soup option and wonderful apple cobbler desert it was yummy! Very romantic lodge with ample seating and courteous staff. Our server was not super animated and not as attentive as we would have liked. That part was a bit... More

This restaurant was wonderful and overall was our favorite inside the park. The tables are all inside. From our table we had a spectacular view (through the three level glass wall) or Yosemite Falls. Service was the best we had in the park. The menu variety and the quality of the food served was also the best we had in... More

Don't let the building or atmosphere of this restaurant fool you, they still serve the same old National Park, tough, tasteless food. My family and I went here hoping for a relaxing, decent meal after a long day of hiking. We waited 45 minutes to finally be seated. Then we received poor service, with even worse food. My wife couldn't... More

The food is overpriced. The service is unpredictable and quirky. The fillet mignon was nice but the rest of the menu choices were bland.

When you stay at the Yosemite Lodge, they basically have you. You can't just drive to the nearest fast food joint or grocery store. We ate at all three dining options here: food court, lounge and Mountain Room. The food at each was pretty bad. The service was indifferent. Come with low expectations and you'll be just fine.

We had dinner here on all of our four nights at Yosemite Lodge. The service and quality of the food were very good on each occasion. Wonderful views too from the huge glass windows.

My husband and I recently enjoyed two dinners this past weekend. The food was really great (but not out of the world). The great thing is you can go from a hike to dinning, without cleaning up. The (con) service is more like being in a diner vs a nice restaurant. If you have to wait for a table, they... More

This restaurant does not take reservations and when we arrived there around 7:30, we had to wait for nearly an hour for a table. We ordered steaks, chicken and trout for our entrees. The appetizers were good so we were excited to eat the rest of our dinner. However, besides the children's steaks being tasty (although not done medium rare... More

We had a very good meal with good service in view of the falls. My husband had good onion soup, my salad fresh and good. His steak was cooked perfectly medium, hot seared on the outside and still juicy inside . My trout was fresh and tender. No complaints with anything here. We were a walk up and were seated... More
