We visit this restaurant at least once a year and every year it is just the same. The decor, mid 60's wood and photographs well done, never changes. The service is always professional and friendly. And the meal, more than adequate and delicious. I could not finish the lamb shank and would have it again.

I visited Yosemite with two friends. We visited in early November, i.e. not "high season". Our first three nights we attempted to eat at the Mountain Room restaurant. The waiting time for a table ranged from 45 minutes one day, an hour and fifteen minutes another, and two hours the third night (we didn't wait that night, just went to... More

I just returned from three weeks travelling around United States and I can say that the only rude person that I met was in this restaurant. We were there on Monday, 27th October, for dinner with friends. We were along the first guests to arrive, so the restaurant was almost empty. A young waitress asigned us a table close to... More

Great atmosphere but the balance of the lunch was not the best in this exclusive hotel. Service was very slow and we ended up one wrong meal out of four. Food was acceptable but overpriced. We would not go back.

Well prepared dishes, attentive staff, great views, tasteful decor. We like the care given to the preparation of the food, especially the steaks, lamb, and hamburgers.

We always enjoy our dinner at the Mountain Room Restaurant while staying at The Lodge at Yosemite Falls. The restaurant features a beautiful wood interior and spectacular views. The food and service has never disappointed us in many visits.

We visited here while staying in the lodge. The room is nice - cosy if a little out-of-keeping with the surrounding. They have a hostess service here - so when you arrive there is a hostess here who takes your coats and tells you to wait whole someone gets a table ready. It does get very busy here with a... More

After reading the positive Lonely Planet review the restaurant was a bit of a disappointment. The flat Iron steak I had was smaller then mentioned on the menu and charred (besides overpriced). The peasoup of partner had a bad taste combined with too much pepper in it. In addition it was too cold in the restaurant, despite it being the... More

Had a great dinner here. Expectations were not high and had to wait an hour to be seated because they don't take reservations for parties less than eight people but the food was fantastic. Try the lamb shank - you won't regret it.
