The Mountain Room is such a nice, quiet, enjoyable alternative to the food courts at Yosemite! The walls are deep rich wood, nicely lit with oversized photos of breathtaking Yosemite scenes. The floor to ceiling windows let in enough of the local landscape without showing the crowds, and its proximity to the bar and open air seating is convenient. Not... More

Gryntede, I had high expectations for this place, as the location is so great, but I was not impressed. The restaurant is very noise and the food is made very basic. The steak was good but that is not enough to make a great meal. The salat dressing was sour and potatoes was server with wanted butter. That is fine... More

There are few options for good food in a nice setting in Yosemite. If you're tired of pizza, sandwiches, or cafeteria food, the Mountain Room is your only choice for a reasonable price. The restaurant is beautiful and implies better service and meals than what we experienced. The food was very average so you shouldn't expect anything special just because... More

While staying in Yosemite we decide that we didn't want a cafeteria type evening meal , so off to the Mountain Room it was. It was definitely a great choice . My husband had a delicious steak (which was one of the best on our 5 week USA holiday) and I had a very nice fillet of salmon. Service was... More

We enjoyed two dinners during a three day visit to Yosemite Valley Lodge - each with a starter, entree, and dessert. A wide selection and interesting combinations elevated these meals above average restaurants - we enjoyed duck, trout, lamb, and chicken. The razzleberry cobbler was very good, but the flourless chocolate tart was superb. We saw many hopeful diners turned... More

Trout Almondine with raw almonds, no sauce, asparagus some pieces which should have gone to the recycle bin. Or a $17 hamburger ordered medium but arrived grey, dry well-done with "house made" potato chips which may have been good the day before. Or the $10 beet salad with absolutely no seasoning or dressing on the beets. Time for the park... More

Considering the reputation and price of the meal, we expected a better dining experience. The service was excellent and friendly but the meal was very ordinary -- and expensive.

An option for a nice meal while staying at the lodge. The food was good and the view from the dining room was very nice.

The food was awful and most of the tables enjoy a view of the road and not Yosemite as the advert suggests. Our chicken was served raw. The trout was bland and the desert looked like it had come out of a packet. The waitress was friendly though.
