Had lunch as part of our "Discover Yosemite" tour at this dining room. Really great experience in the room as well as throughout the resort. I wouldn't go out of my way to just go there for lunch, but as part of the whole experience, including the views, it's worthwhile.

Excellent setting, food and service for Sunday brunch. The best prime rib I have had in a long time. Many items to choose from. Fresh jumbo shrimp cocktail. The desserts were all excellent with so many choices....bit size so you can sample a dozen of them if you like....and I liked it very much! Very nice setting for special occasion... More

We decided to have lunch in the Majestic Dining Room and it was so fun and the food was delicious 👍🏻 I had the signature French onion with baguettes, my husband enjoyed the burger and the couple with us split the Crab Louie salad. The onion soup was very tasty, with 3 cheeses broiled atop the soup and baguette slices.... More

It is one of the most beautiful dining rooms I have ever been in. That being said you are at their mercy - limited hours, reservations a must. We wanted a light meal and chose soup and a salad. The French onion soup was excellent, salads below average. Forgot to add bacon to the spinach salad and the dressing was... More

This does have a magnificent dining room, but skip the meal and just walk through it. Hamburgers were ordered medium rare and came well done. Service was good but could not make up for the overpriced food. This has become your basic tourist trap

We had a reservation for lunch. The hotel and the dining room are just beautiful! We had a table next to the window, and could enjoy the view as we ate. Our meals were very good, and service was absolutely wonderful! The menu was somewhat limited, however. I would recommend having dinner here, as opposed to lunch, as our morning... More

We stopped for drinks and appetizers in the hotel bar. In a beautiful building, the bar offers comfy chairs to relax after a long hike or before a nice dinner. We tried an "El Capitini", their local martini. It was okay, but nothing very special. The smoked fish appetizer was ample with plenty of variety and wonderful flavor. Like everything... More

just the right amount of birthday fuss by the waitress. Food is excellent as always and the setting can't be beat. Expensive though.

The dining room is beautiful. The menu offers fewer choices than in previous years but everything we had (4 dinners, 4 breakfasts, one lunch) was delicious. Reservations are a must for all meals. We waited over an hour to be seated for lunch when we had no reservation. The dining room was perhaps half full and it appeared to be... More

We only had breakfast at the dining room during our stay but the food and service was very good but a little pricey.
