On of the best Duck dinners we have ever had

Went here for dinner and even though there was a 15 minute wait with a number of empty tables, it was well worth the wait. We sat down and ordered the Duck dinner and it was amazing. We got a half of duck that was roasted along with quinoa and fresh green beans. There was so much food that we... read more

The food is great, the service is top notch, and the view of Yosemite Falls is stunning. You really MUST check this place out if you're staying in Yosemite and doing a lodge experience, though not really fitting for a camping trip.

Well, you are not going to have a lot of luck finding eateries in Yosemite, besides at hotels. Mountain Room was nice. It is really pricey. I had a baked chicken dish and it was delicious. My whole family and I enjoyed our food.

We dined here two evenings while in Yosemite. One was on Valentines day over a "free park weekend". Should you find yourself here over a free weekend or special day - MAKE A RESERVATION! We did but many people were unhappy with the crowd waiting for a few tables that weren't reserved. The food was very well prepared, presented and... More

We were in Yosemite for two nights and decided to have a nice meal here on he first night, and unfortunately regretted this decision. We were driving all day and so we're starving by the time we arrived here. We all ordered our food as soon as we could, and we waited over two hours to receive cold meals. At... More

The Mountain View restaurant at Yosemite is fine dining in the Valley of Yosemite. Convienentley located and surrounded by the Mountains. Gorgeous views and very delicious food. We went with our 1o year old twins and they loved it too. A must for a very relaxing evening at Yosemite.

We always have our anniversary dinner at the Mountain Room Restaurant. Lynn has been our waitress for years and is very friendly and accommodating. The food is excellent and presented in a very appealing manner. Love it!

The Mountain Room is fancy - and you pay for it. If you're willing to have a sit-down meal with white table cloth services after hiking all day, this is your place. High quality steaks - french onion soup - and fancy gourmet with all the trimmings. The dinning room is beautiful though -the pictures of Yosemite (including ansel adams... More
