Wonderful view of the falls from the dining room. The food was good and the wait staff was friendly and attentive. Ask to be seated by the windows.

After the Ahwanee Hotel dining room, this is the next nicest restaurant in Yosemite Valley. Good food in an attractive high-ceilinged dining room, but it doesn't have much of a view.

Be sure to ask for a window seat so you can see Yosemite falls. Downside is no reservations so go early or late. Good selections on the menu and wine list. Wait staff is very friendly and helpful. You can have a hamburger or steaks with the usual other choices in between. Carpets are salad is usually pretty good as... More

It was pretty good. Yosemite has millions of visitors from every corner of the world. They feed a lot of people. The food here is a 6 on scale of 1-10

Good meal for a National Park although not very memorable! Amazing views of the Yosemite Waterfall from our table. Service was ok. Very close to the Lodge at the Falls which was very convenient for us.

We had two dinners at the Mountain Room; both experiences were very good. The spacious dining room is an attractive space, with a spectacular view of Yosemite Falls through a wall of glass.

This was one of our better experiences of dining in the Park areas. Yes it was a bit pricey, but we are a captive audience. Onion soup was excellent. Pork chop delicious. Service friendly and efficient, and with nice sense of humour.

good food, good service, price a little high, but not too bad for the quality you receive in the beautiful surroundings.

I had high hopes for this restaurant but was disappointed. I had the duck which was good. The problem was the sides of rice and cauliflower which were cold. Service was good, but slow. The deserts were very average also. Typical park food is what we found with this restaurant.

We have a nice meal at the end of our trip at the Mountain Room. We both enjoyed a glass of wine and a Rib eye steak. Service was great and food was cooked perfectly.
