“Wide variety on the menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Service was good and the food was good as well. Full bar. Lots of dishes to choose from. My entree came with a side of brussel sprouts that wasn't listed on the menu - and my server didn't tell (umm - warn) me about - but they were good.

We try to keep a wide variety on the menu so everyone has a chance to enjoy their experience here. Just so that you know we have since discontinued using the brussel sprouts. Thank you

“Never, Ever Again!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We stayed at the hotel and that was fine, but this restaurant was JUST THE WORST! We went in about 8am for breakfast so we could hurry out to see Yosemite.

1. Once we were finally seated, we waited forever for a waitress to take our drink order.
2. Once we ordered our food, it took forever for it to arrive.
3. While we waited for our food, our waitress was cleaning a neighboring table. She disappeared behind a wall and dumped the dishes. She immediately returned from behind the wall holding toast in each of her hands and walked back to the kitchen, reappearing with our breakfast plates in hand. She had no time to wash her hands after cleaning that table!
4. Once the food arrived, my omelet was runny and cold, the cheese wasn't even slightly melted. Wasn't eating that, wasn't eating the toast she had in her dirty hands. So I had bacon and iced tea for breakfast.

What adds to this story of a long wait and nasty food, they were not even slightly busy, so there was NO excuse for this lousy "service." I think we were one of three tables that had patrons.

If we weren't in a rush, I would have sent it back. However, after seeing what slobs appeared to be working there, I wasn't inclined to order something else anyway,

Stay away!

First I would like to say this is unacceptable. We have since had a meeting and fix all issues. We would like to appologize for the inconvenience to you. We appreciate the feedback and wish to see you again in the restaurant. Thank you.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Decided to eat here as I was tired from the drive and staying at the hotel next door. Big mistake. I ordered soup of the day, tomato basil, and the grilled cheese sandwich. The soup had bits of dried basil, obviously just added at the end, which made the soup "chewy", kind of like little pieces of cardboard with every taste. The soup was actually better than the sandwich. The bread was not toasted, no golden brown anywhere in sight, just greasy bread, and cold. Some French fries and the most pitiful little garnish, an extremely wilted piece of lettuce that looked like it had been set out a week ago. I know that it can be difficult doing sandwiches with dinner service, but if they are unable to offer all options on the menu well, they should limit the choices.

“Right in Gateway Hotel...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Food was excellent as was the service. Ask for Lynette. She will be your best friend before you leave. Classy place, a couple a bucks more than other dinner places, but spacious and charming any time of year.
