We both had steaks...very good ones. Meal was well-presented, and the service was solid. Wine list is very respectable. Price is a little high...but not too out of line. Good place to have a more upscale meal without breaking the bank.

The Mountain Room Restaurant at Yosemite Lodge can sometimes be very good or just average, depending on what you order and who you are served by, but it is a tradition for me to dine here at least once whenever I stay in Yosemite. This October 2014, my weekend visit to Yosemite included another dinner here and I was not... More

The room was very nicely decorated and tables were not too close together so I had a very good first impression of this restaurant. However, the waiter ruined it when I ordered the Ahi Tuna salad and the waiter told me it was a very small portion. As I had eaten both breakfast and lunch I was not that hungry... More

This over-done and crowded tourist park hit a home run with this restaurant. I will never be here again, but I must salute its well-thought-out plan, its success, and the quality food it offers. So enjoyed every aspect.

but the food and service are first class, and if you can get a window seat to view Yosemite Falls, the evening will be wonderful.

The best thing about the restaurant was the service provided by Vince. He did a very nice job of taking care of the three of us. He took our order timely, patiently explained the menu, and checked back to see if we needed anything. The food itself was inconsistent in taste and quality. The sour dough bread was not thoroughly... More

The mountain range is nestled in one end of Yosemite Lodge. The Valley, of course, is a fabulous setting, but placement of the restaurant within the lodge is unassuming. The ambience is tasteful and a bit rustic. The service was prompt, professional and attentive. I must confess that I am not a trout aficionado , but I do get it... More

They do try here to provide upscale dining (at an upscale price), but fall short. The lamb chops my wife had were not chops at all, but some bony cut of lamb with a great deal of fat on it. We don't really expect gourmet food in a National Park, but they should not act as if it is.

They don’t take reservations for dinner, but we didn’t have to wait for a table. We had two types of salads to start with, followed by salmon and lamb for mains. The portions were generous, but happily they had a section of the menu for ‘mini-desserts’. I opted for the chocolate truffles, which actually came with berries and a sauce,... More
