Stopped here in the valley for breakfast. Had a nice buffet. One of the few "nicer" non cafeteria/deli style places to eat in the valley. Reasonable price for the buffet and had other breakfast options as well.

The atmosphere is still majestic with high beamed ceiling and walls of windows with views of the mountains, however the service and food are not comparable to the prices. Our guest's second drink never came and our entrees were unremarkable. The trout recommended by our server was a bit oily, though tasty. Go for the ambiance on a special occasion... More

We had just about everything on the menu, plus a special or two, so we won't go over items, per se, but they were all great.Our servers, in order, were Judy, Kris (Cris? sorry!), Rosemary and George - all were great. We really enjoyed Rosemary's thoughts on how Yosemite has changed in the years she has worked there. we also... More

no visit to Yosemite is complete without a stop here, and on a very hot day, we enjoyed the cool dining room for lunch. Our servers Piper and Daniel were excellent: prompt, friendly, gave good advice. The food was just okay and expensive-$96 for 2 apps, 2 sandwiches, 2 desserts, and italian sodas. Chicken sandwiches consisted of tiny piece of... More

Quite a view and an impressive ambiance. The service was top notch, helpful, attentive and, most importantly, truly engaging. The food was nice and not surprisingly overpriced. However, you are not there for the price. We really enjoyed our experience.

Ambience, good service and reasonably priced breakfast. Our waiter, Mr. David Weller was a delight and provided us with great service and local information, as this was our first visit to Yosemite National Forest. We ordered our breakfast a la cart and it did not disappoint. My only complaint is that the muesli was mediocre. We aren't interested in quantity... More

Make reservations early using Open Table. A meal here is obviously a reason to hang out on-site, see historic photos in the lounge areas and grab a drink while viewing the beautiful grounds surrounding a property on the national register of historic places bordered by towering walls of Yosemite granite! Dinner was as expected quite expensive but also quite good.... More

We lunched (dinner menu) with a Road Scholar group of 34 people. The location of this restaurant in this fabulous hotel is superb. The food was outstanding and the service excellent. Reservation are required to ensure entry
