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!

super expensive, but as i've said, so what, yosemite valley food is expensive everywhere. the food was very good, but i gave it "average" because the portions were small. the best part about the place was the young lady who seated us. Great personality.

Food was good, but I do not believe that it was good value for the money. Nice photos along the walls.

Our last night we wanted a dining experience. Fine dining experience in the comfort of hiking shorts after an all day picnic and walk from El Capitan shuttle stop to Sentinal Bridge. Opens at 5:30 PM. Average price $30 - $40 for entrée, two sides, bread, and one drink. Follow signs for Food Court and bear far right. Needs bigger... More

Salads and salmon were excellent. Tri tip was sub par and overcooked. Steak is very expensive. Excellent service and atmosphere.

I had a terrible dinner experience at the Mountain Room! After I was seated I waited a real long time before the waitress came. I had told the water-server, that I wanted a gin & tonic, as he was not allowed to take requests, he promised to pass that on. When the waitress (friendly throughout this whole thing) finally came,... More
