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 🙂

We didn’t expect to find a restaurant that was way above and beyond the canteen style food we had experienced in the national parks but this place was fabulous. The room had low romantic lighting and huge windows looking out into Yosemite. Food was really good, both of our steaks were beautifully cooked and there was a good wine list... More

This is a beautiful hotel, with very impressive dining room. However, food was overrated & overpriced. French onion soup didn't look or tasted as soup I usually get. My medium hamburger was well done (I would say very well done); my husband's medium-rare hamburger was medium well. Service wished to be better too. I didn't even bother to try dessert.

This is really the only reasonable place to eat in Yosemite, a step below the ridiculously-priced Ahwahnee (sorry, the "Majestic Yosemite") but far above the school-cafeteria Food Court. I've probably eaten here 25 times in 30+ years as an annual visitor. The problem? It's just average. Service is OK, food is OK--nothing ambitious or innovative, but usually well prepared. Prices...

My steak was great but the soup a friend had did not sit well with her. Quiet comfortable surroundings with a view

Somewhere between pizza and the Majestic Room lies the dining room in the Yosemite Lodge. Though not inexpensive, our dinner was well prepared (salmon and pork chop on the bone). The wines were good as well. Though the setting is relatively informal, service was professional and friendly. This is our favorite place to eat in the Valley.
