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

We were looking forward to a nice dinner after some average dining experiences in Yosemite NP. The menu looked promising but a bit expensive. As we had good hopes for this restaurant the prices didn't bother us. The entree (salmon rilette) was very nice but the patatoe chips we got were so hard we couldn't eat them. The entree however...

We stayed at the Lodge and had heard good things about the food. It was all right. We had a small Caeser salad. For my main course I had lamb chops that had been rubbed fennel and rosemary with a fig and balsamic 'sauce' it was fabulous as was the wine pairing, Gundlach Bundschu “Mountain Cuvee.

The restaurant is located in the central area of the valley near Yosemite Lodge. It had a very nice atmosphere with friendly service and surprisingly decent food. Nice variety of menu choices with creative preparation. We enjoyed both of our meals here.
