If you want to treat yourself to an intimate, delicious dining experience, make this a must go in the Mammoth area. We were so glad we selected this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. The food was terrific, with a great wine selection, and prompt, kind service. Will definitely visit again next time I'm in the area.

We had rented a cabin at the lodge and looked forward to a great meal at their cozy restaurant. I was disappointed that trout nor any other local fish was on the menu, but that turned out to the least of our concerns. Bread and appetizers came out quickly and they were all quite good. And then came a long... More

This restaurant is located next to Twin Lakes adjacent to Tamarack Lodge, about a 10 minute drive in the summer uphill above the town of Mammoth. It serves only dinner. And it is quite a dinner. We ordered the nightly special of Prime NY steak and the vegetarian dish. Both were excellent. They also serve wine by the glass or... More

Every time I come to Mammoth, I go here. The food and service is always amazing. Book well in advanced because it's hard to get a table on weekends especially during the ski season.

After enjoying a hike we wanted to get some coffee in the bar of the lodge. The restaurant part was busy so we had to wait a little before a servant showed up. We ordered coffee and relaxed a bit in a nicely looking lodge. Having decided to move on I asked how much I had to pay for the... More

The restaurant is in an ideal location for viewing the beautiful Twin Lakes, although we did not see the lake from inside the restaurant. The Lakes are a short walk (across the road). While the interior of the restaurant is small, rustic and cozy, the food is sophisticated and trendy. We enjoyed the homemade bread, "Simple Salad" (that's what it... More

We greatly enjoyed dinner and the next day lunch celebrating my husbands birthday. Can't say anything negative, it was all so good. Just be sure to reserve in advance if you want to eat there.

From Bryan taking care of us at the bar in front to Michelle's attentiveness in the restaurant the evening could not have been better. We started with the Joseph Phelps Pinot, awesome. My wife had the Brussel Sprout salad and I had the Octopus. Both were wonderfully prepared. I had the Venison and my wife had the Salmon. I had... More

This restaurant is trying to be the French Laundry in Mammoth but it doesn't work. Mammoth is not the place for the French Laundry and certainly not when you are housed within the Tamarack Lodge. The lodge is a family and pet friendly destination. The restaurant at the lodge should be a family friendly bistro not a place where appetizers... More

One of our good friends had recommended the restaurant in the Tamarack Lodge. During our stay in Mammoth Lakes last week we decided to give it a try. We looked in the internet to find the exact address and studied the menu. The given prices were reasonable so we went expecting a good meal. To our surprise the menu was... More
