Very nice meal - catered well for gluten free

Ate here in the evening whilst staying at the hotel. Found the food very nice with great, attentive (but not intrusive) service. They had a seperate gluten free menu-brilliant!

Service was great but menu was uninspired. The free breakfast buffet was about the same as a low price motel.

Beautiful spot and good service. We enjoyed our window table and nice wine selection at dinner. Cheese canneloni not made with crepes but pasta, more like manicotti. Too much pepper on squash. Breakfast buffet was fresh and had good selection.

Our expectations were exceeded! Resturant was excellent, staff was friendly and well trained, meal service was appropriately timed. We thought it was good food and good value.

Average quality, bland food at 5x the price you would expect to pay. Not sure if there are any decent restaurants just south of the park, but it would be worth the drive to see.

The atmosphere is amazing. Porch dining allows for a beautiful view of the newly restored fountain and surrounding trees. The inside dining room is complete with huge, original bubbled glass windows, affording great views of the area. Having eaten there often, I believe the food has improved a bit and the menu was also different. I usually order the salmon... More

Not resident and stopped here on way to Mariposa Grove for breakfast. Felt dated but in a poor way. Was told there would be a 15 minute wait for a table which was fine. Was intrigued however when called in to find the restaurant approximately a third full....so why the wait? Service friendly but expensive and food quality poor. Eggs... More

The quality of the food was OK, the service was pretty good, but the prices are just too high for what you get. Yes, the atmosphere is the best thing about the dining room, but you are already paying a premium to stay in the hotel, in the park, so why pile on inflated pricing for just average meals?

Excellent food it a quaint old dining area, I felt like I was back in the 30's. It had a good childerens menu and a fun place, but gets busy when the tour bus comes in, luckily we beat it.
