Enjoyed a wonderful breakfast in the dining room at the Majestic Hotel. The food was outstanding, the price was reasonable and since you want to visit the Majestic during your trip to Yosemite, you might as well have a meal at the hotel. The service was excellent and the history in the dining room is an enjoyable experience.

The place is superb once, but the food doesn't deserve a second chance. You pay for the place and is very good

Me and my friend stumbled in the from the cold and found this extremely large restaurant. It has a really cool atmosphere and you feel like you're eating in the great hall of some European king. The staff were friendly and answered our questions about the area. I had the pasta which was fantastic and my friend had the philly... More

The dining hall is beautiful, old world charm, with huge ceilings, stone walls, wrought iron lighting and floor to ceiling drapes. It is a large dining hall but does not feel crowded, it is welcoming. The service was excellent, efficient, timely with a very polite server. The menu choice was good, a selection for everyone and the prices reasonable for... More

Their staff have been there for many years, sometimes decades and they're a bit quirky in the nicest way.

We were staying in Yosemite and decided to have something to eat at the majestic. This place is wonderfully grand, the standard of service was very high and the food was absolutely lovely. This is a very grand hotel, it did remind me of the hotel in the film the shining (in a good way) though. There is very little... More

We have been celebrating friends and family for years at the Ahwahnee and a highlight has always been our meals taken in the grand dining room. In particular Sunday Brunch. Regardless of the Season the soaring ceiling and amazing vistas viewed through arched picture windows are spectacular. Our Christmas Day brunch was memorable for many reasons but also left a...

This restaurant is a really nice spot to relax after being in the park. We came on a snowy day and the views from the windows were beautiful. The food is pricey but good. The portions are a good size and you can't beat the ambiance. The service on this particular visit could have been better but overall it was... More
