This is my go to restaurant when I visit Mammoth. An ever changing creative menu, fantastic martinis and don't be swayed by the ugly decor. The food and service speak for themselves.

I've been here before and found the food to be good, if not great. This time it was awful. I had kale salad with blackened shrimp and shrimp lettuce cups. The kale was wilted, the blackened shrimp were dried out and the dressing (supposedly blueberry balsamic vinaigrette) was tasteless. The lettuce cups were virtually inedible -- the lettuce was soggy... More

Reservations are highly recommended at this long-time fine dining restaurant near Mammoth Village. Great menu and large wine list.

I'm in the negative camp. Okay we're in a mountain resort and expect prices to be higher, but quality didn't match the prices charged. Food was okay - salmon and scallops tasty but they know how to charge.

White table cloths, good service and good food. It doesn't get any better than this in Mammoth. I had the venison and my wife had the filet. Both were expertly prepared. The portions were large They came with mashed potatoes and vegetables. They have an excellent wine list with some bottles under $25. I would eat here again.

Friday evening the dining room was full (they take reservations, we didn't have any). They didn't encourage our waiting for a table, but did find one for us in the bar and dining room menu. Very loud. Needs sound barrier. 20 minute wait to have order taken. After we ordered we found out there was also a bar menu. Dinner... More

We visited Nevados on a recent Friday night. We eat here every time we visit Mammoth because of the superb food. Once again the food was excellent but our server was terrible. We had trouble ordering a drink( we were only people in restaurant) and then after our entrees came out we had to search for waiter. Finally we gave... More

Nevados has a very interesting and varied menu for starters, main course and dessert. With their 3-course Prix Fixe option it is very tempting to go for all three, even though we generally pass on desserts. The only slight disappointment with our latest visit is that now the price of wines is comparable with other similar restaurants, whereas in the... More

We have been eating at Navado's for over 30 years during ski season. We enjoyed the food and ambience. Terry, the owner, loves wine and so we would bring a bottle of something special to have with the great food and share with him. Several years have passed since we had to give up skiing but went up this past... More

This is our #2 favorite in Mammoth. The building is older, view not all that great, but the decor and ambiance are quite good. There is a well-chosen wine list with reasonable (by restaurant standards) prices, a reasonably varied menu and friendly, attentive service. Their specials are always worth considering. Parking is a bit tight, but that's a small price... More
