We visit Yosemite every year at this time for Chef's Holliday. With a big Ahwahnee (majestic) dinner one night it's nice to go to the Mountain Room. It is near Yosemite Lodge. The menu offers a great variety of fare from trout to lamb to steaks. With nice large salads and large desserts to round out the menu. The corkage... More

Having eaten here in 2012 we were already prepared for the pricey menu. We arrived late into the park and went to the restaurant within 1/2 hour of closing. We were so pleased to find the meals arrived as I would expect them to arrive at the beginning of the night. With young children and fussy tastes they ordered a... More

Ate here for 2 dinners. Food is good. Service was good and friendly. Recommend rainbow trout, it was good. Wasn't the best I ever had but certainly not the worse. Actually preferred the food here than the Majestic restaurant.

For dining all the way in Yosemite Valley, and considering our previous camp experiences have all been eating in the campground this was pretty good food! We were recommended the chicken and the pork chop when we checked, which were both great. The French onion soup was recommended, which ended up being slightly above average. We went here because reviews... More

Not the fine dining experience the menu and pricing implies. Food was better than average, but not a good value. It was a pleasantly nice atmosphere.

We found our way here for dinner while visiting the park. The ambiance is relaxing and the food was very good. Both of us had the steak. Nicely cooked as ordered. Although it was a busy evening, we were not rushed. They have a nice selection of wine also. Our waiter was attentive and professional. A very pleasant evening.

We had a party of 17 that was reserved 2 months in advance and we were split apart on 2 tables and were told they had sent 4 people home early because it wasn't busy. We'll that was a major bad start. The server we did have couldn't have cared less about whether we were pleased or not. As it... More

We had a wonderful meal in this lovely dining room. Great Yosemite photos all around. The polenta was yummy - different, more texture than the usual. Try the lamb shank - succulent. Sammie - our waitress provided great service and great information about Yosemite.

As is true with everything in Yosemite it is pricey. However, the food and service were exceptional. A lodge-type feeling which filled up quickly on a Thursday night, off season. a nice step up from typical park food. There were couples a well as families eating and it gets a bit loud, but not a problem.

We came here because we were in the Majestic Hotel and were disappointed with the dining experience there. The Mountain View did not disappoint. Even though they were busy they had us seated in 5 minutes. We both had fillet steaks and they were excellent. Next time we'll stay in the Yosemite Valley Lodge and eat here every night 🙂
