Good Food at a Historical Hotel

My husband and I came up from Bass Lake just to see the Wawona Hotel and eat in their dining room. It had been 12 years since we had been to Yosemite. The Wawona is a real step-back in time and so is the dining room. The food was good and the waiters pleasant. We were surprised that the piano... read more

We had lunch there and we loved our choices! We asked for sandwiches and they were the best sandwiches that we have tasted in fourteen days in USA. The costumer servicer was also very good! This restaurant was a much better option than the options in Yosemite Valley!

This beautiful hotel is like something out of the Great Gatsby. It is stately with a large surrounding porches and balcony. The building is old and picturesque. Breakfast was great. We had a standard breakfast pancakes and eggs and everyone in my party seemed content with the meal. Very pretty views overlooking Wawona Golf Course and the fountain.

Nice old fashioned CA dining room. Food was more of a comfort food quality-pot roast and turkey meat loaf. Good and hearty-large servings. Staff pleasant and service very good. Long waits and busy. Had to go out of the building to use the bathroom-might be a problem for some in the winter. Would return and recommend.

We had lunch here & then dinner during a three night stay at The Redwoods. The food is good, not spectacular, but at the same time you are in Yosemite! & it is better than a lot of classy hotel food at some resorts. The entrees arrived as described & cooked correctly & at the right temperature. Service is not... More

I've never had a meal here that I did not enjoy. The dining room is absolutely gorgeous, and the food is top quality, well prepared and nicely served. The dinner menu is a little pricey for my budget, but it's worth it for a special treat. The wait staff are wonderful, happy & attentive. I always see lots of families... More

We stopped in here for lunch, and though they were short-staffed that day, the service and food were still VERY good. The staff stayed chipper in spite of the onslaught of people that came in late in the afternoon, and the food was very good!!
