We had been meaning to spend the night at the Ahwanee in winter for many years. Now just back from Boston after 3 years with an awesome amount of snow, this seemed the ideal time to celebrate a delayed birthday gift. However, we were concerned about the 'new' management and name change to the Majestic Yosemite - especially with the... More

The Majestic Dining room is a great place for dinner. We were told by our hostess that the location we were seated in, was the same location as Queen Elizabeth had back in 1987, My wife had the salmon and I had the prime rib, both were fantastic. I can only remember one dining experience that I enjoyed better in... More

We were very much looking forward to our dinner! The room is grand! The service tries, but the food does not live up to the menu descriptions. The French onion soup was typical, the scallops list their fresh taste to the mushroom base. Lamb chops were good but the sirloin lacked flavor. What was the topper that made it a... More

The name may be different but that is the only thing that appears to have changed at this wonderful dining experience. The menu is the same except for the substitution of the word Majestic for Ahwahnee. Our server was delightful, making sure we had a great dining experience. The food is not fanciful or exotic but what they do, they... More

beautiful hotel, went there for lunch which was a nice meal. Wanted to visit this hotel because of the rock formation behind the hotel, and it did not disappoint. Also saw a wild deer roaming around the car park, are real treat to see

If you go to Yosemite you can't miss experiencing the Ahwahnee dining room. While currently called the Majestic, for those of us who have been going to Yosemite for years, it will always be the Ahwahnee, although it is disheartening to be served food on plain white plates. This visit I had the burger which was cooked to perfection. Juicy,... More

We pre-booked from overseas several months before travelling, as the reviews indicated it could be very busy for Sunday brunch/breakfast. They were right. Thank goodness we had booked in advance. What a wonderful experience our breakfast was. We ordered from the menu, instead of the buffet, and the choice was great. We were delighted at the range of beverages (English... More

The dining room is truly majestic with towering beams and enormous windows open to fabulous views. The food is not majestic. I would say it's average in all aspects. The coffee and eggs we had at breakfast were both lukewarm even though we ordered the eggs from the menu and not the buffet. The toast was also just warm and... More
