Good good and tremendous setting but service was lacking. Waitress complained that new management company could not keep help. Several open seats with few servers to manage. Good took far too long to come out but was delicious. Despite shortcomings...worth the trip.

Travelers to Yosemite National Park should take in another of the "natural wonders" of the area by visiting the Majestic Yosemite Hotel and its dining room. Formerly known as the Ahwahnee, the locale is one of the historic National Park hotels and features 40 foot timbered ceilings, Native American stained glass window transoms, and rock fireplaces tall enough for 10...

I read a review that said that while concessions in the NP's aren't anything special - the lodge resturants are - and it was true. I am SO glad we were able to get in to this amazing restaurant in a beautiful historic building - the meal my husband and I had were wonderful!! Our main server wasn't great but... More

As hotel guests, we ate our breakfasts and dinners at the hotel. Since this is the only dining room in the valley that accepts dinner reservations, we made ours way ahead. We found out after arriving, that it's also very smart to reserve your table for breakfast, as well......unless you want to sit around in the lobby and wait your... More

A much anticipated dinner at the Majestic, at the end of our visit to Yosemite was a totally terrible experience. The dining room itself is magnificently elegant, but the magic stopped there. Our waiter was rushed, barked orders across our table to the busboy, and didn’t appear particularly knowledgeable about the dishes on the menu. Twenty minutes after he took... More

Always wanted to dine in one of the big natl park dining rooms. The facility is nice, food average at best, prices way too high, service so-so. We checked the box and spent the $500 for dinner, won't do it again. Would not recommend to others, take the picture and move on--or simply have dessert.

Amazing place. Classic style. Deer on the lawn. I imagine an incredible Christmas destination. The massive rooms and fire placed are something to see. The restaurant is just great. Fantastic setting and good food and service.

We had lunch there in September and the food was OK. The setting is very attractive and evocative of a different era. The greeting was a bit strange. We did not reserve and we could see a great many empty tables. Still, we were told there would be a thirty-minute wait and we were given one of those buzzer gizmos.... More
