The four meals we had at the Mountain Room were delicious. The vegetarian dish was wells-seasoned, with good-sized portions--really nice!

The only drawback to the Mountain dining room is that they don't take reservations. During peak times, that can mean quite a wait, but they have a buzzer/beeper system so you can take a stroll or shop in the gift shop while you wait. We loved the relaxed feel of this place. My trout was too salty and the waiter... More

While very expensive for my budget, the burger was cooked the way I like it and the salad was crisp and delicious. The wine choices were adequate but pricy like everything in Yosemite Valley. The view was terrific as were the photos on the walls. The waitress was attentive during the meal but took a long time bring the check... More

Ambiance is okay, view is quite nice I guess. Served bread to start which had a very odd taste. My husband ordered a burger which was $17 the most expensive we've paid the whole vacation in America and it was quite comfortably the worst he's had, not only in the USA but anywhere. Never have I eaten a burger with... More

We were in Yosemite to celebrate my brother-in-laws 100th hiking of Half Dome. This dinner was to be the culmination of a great day. This is billed as a nice dining room. Reservations were made well in advance and the group of 22 were ready for a nice time. We were met by Justin at the podium who seemed hell... More

We enjoyed two nice dinners at the Mountain Room during our stay in YNP. The food was good and reasonably priced. Our servers were friendly and helpful. We were a party of only two, and were seated quickly with no wait. I'm not sure what the dress code is for the Mountain Room. We saw diners dressed very informally; some... More

This restaurant has great menu choices for dinner and the food is spectacular. Like everything else in Yosemite, the food is a bit overpriced. The only negative to this place is the wait staff; they probably would not make it in a big city restaurant.

Having had a disappointing dinner at the Ahwahnee we weren't sure what we might run into at the Mountain Room but we didn't have to worry. The food was excellent and the service was the best. The prices were reasonable and our dinner as an enjoyable event. We would certainly suggest The Mountain Room to anyone who is staying in... More

upscale restaurant.... no hiking gear allowed here. Good food and selection. No reservations unless you have 8 or more. Open 5:30PM to 8:30PM only... would be nice to stay open longer - or maybe for lunch?

We always eat here one of the nights we're staying in the park. The food is good, good service, good cocktails and wine choices, we are never disappointed. Relaxed atmosphere....friendly servers; we really like this place!
