This place feels like a family run restaurant. Unpretentious in style and reliably good. The portions were generous and well prepared. Prime rib special was big enough to share and the onion soup was great. Good service in French from Rachel... :)

Everyone enjoyed their dinners, from steaks to fish to pasta to Caesar salad. We brought our own wine, corkage was $15. We shared a huge dessert,... More

Fled from the tourist traps closer to Yosemite NP and found this wonderful and friendly restaurant, where we shared a really tasty steak and lobster together with a local Sangiovese.

I had the most delicious portobello mushroom and cheese raviolis. They were prepared with just the right flavors. The staff was attentive and friendly. I highly recommend!

Loved the decor and atmosphere of this restaurant. Waitress really friendly. Menu good with something for everyone. Good value but as we were a party of 8 we had to pay a 18% gratuity charge which we hadn't allowed for. Did feel this was unnecessary as we would have gladly left the waitress a generous tip. Maybe this is a... More

We were looking for a heart-healthy meal and our host recommended this place. We told our waitress, Mollie, that we were on a low-fat, low-sodium diet. She had a low-sodium menu! And the table next to us were vegetarians and they had a vegetarian menu. Everything is fresh and cooked to order and our meal was delicious. It was one... More

Friends plus my husband and myself were very lucky to get a table at the Charles Street Restaurant on the one night we were passing through Mariposa on our big road trip. We arrived just ahead of several other hopeful diners and the hostess managed to squeeze us in. The food was excellent as was the wine, we would not... More

I have gone here many times for lunch and love the food. The p[lace is small and has a great feel about it. No matter what you get to eat you will love it. The staff are wonderful. Definitely try Charles Street for a great meal and great staff.

We came across the Charles Street Diner on a busy Friday night. Despite the restaurant being very popular with all tables in use we found the service pleasant and polite, not fully attentive, but in a very convivial atmostphere. Food was of a good quality and quantity with a number of different and varied dishes. Yes it is a bit... More

The restaurant looks like it belongs in Mariposa ... rustic decor that suites the Sierra setting. The food was very good ... I had a steak salad and potato soup. A little rich and a little heavy but really great tasting and beautifully presented.
