Was feeling very crap and dehydrated when we turned up here and was grateful for the free refills! I had a bowl of pasta which I almost ordered two of (plain tomato, and vegan I believe!) as it was so nice and it made me feel so much better. I didn't in the end but could have as it was... More

We had lunch (pizza) here and were very satisfied, both with the food and with the fact that it is a comfortable, relatively quiet alternative to the tourist throngs below at the street level cafeteria.

We were in the deli downstairs and made the mistake of thinking the loft would provide better food. Around $35 for a teriyaki bowl and pizza. The teriyaki bowl was something you would expect out of a convenient store fridge. The pizza was so so

We spent 8 days staying in the various lodges in Yosemite NP so we were eager to try the enticing menu options at his restaurant as a change from the basic cafeteria food. We were excited to try the Asian rice bowls. We ordered 1 pizza and several different bowls. The pizza was excellent but the rice bowls were awful.... More

Called mid evening and ordered 3 rice dishes (Thai, Korean and teriyaki) and 1 pizza. Rice dishes heavy on the vegetables but not so with the sauces. Pizza was forgotten and only arrived after two reminders. They did upgrade it from small to medium. Pizza was very nice though. Environment was dimly lit. Waitress was helpful. Recommended the pizza over... More

We intended to go here on one night during our stay but liked our first night so much we went back. The pizzas are a highlight and the large one custom made was good value and would easily feed 3 - 4. The first night the rice bowl experience was better than the second time. Second time it was apparent... More

It is a shame that in an extraordinarily magnificent location this dated restaurant is the best available! This feels like a 70's school canteen and the food is extremely poor. None of the 5 meals we had could be rated any higher than 4/10 and most would be 2 or 3! Despite this the staff are efficient and mostly friendly.... More

Our family got pizza and pasta here during this last visit. The location (on the main shuttle bus route in the village) makes it a perfect mid-day

The loft is above the deli and we really enjoyed the deli so thought we would have our evening meal in the loft. There are limited choices in the evening for food in the valley but the pasta whilst edible was overcooked, they had run out of several items on the menu and they had even run out of cups.... More

With a lot of visitors in Yosemite it can be difficult to find a place to eat. We found this pizza place. The prices were extremely high but the pizza was of an acceptable level.
