After only a 15 minute wait ( no reservation made) we were seated in this lovely restaurant - steaks were great with a good local beer!

Lets talk logistics of the place. Overpriced, nice view, and tasteless food. The service was fine. Our family was the first to be seated and had a great view. But the food tasteless and and overpriced. I had the Filet, with some type of sauce, frozen string beans and a baked potato.....My husband had the ribeye. My son had the... More

We had two evening meals here both being adequate but not outstanding. The salmon dish on night one which changes daily was very good, the salmon on the next occasion was only average. My steak ordered medium rare was cooked sous-vide and finished on the grill which meant it was tender but cooked all through. The duck the second night... More

I understand that the prices need to be a bit higher due to the inaccessibility of supplies, but this restaurant charged double what the quality deserves. The pork chop was overdone and very small for $30. The cheeseburger meat was ok, not very flavorful, not for $18! Waitstaff was attentive, but the food was slow in delivery.

My husband and I ate dinner at the Mountain Room twice during our stay. The staff were very friendly, service was fast, and the food was very good and moderately priced. The restaurant doesn't take reservations but they were efficient at moving people through. We never waited more than 10 minutes to get a table for 2. I would recommend... More

This place has such a nice atmosphere, but the food also delivers. The ribeye steak was excellent, very nicely marbled. The experience is memorable, and considering that it's a tourist area, I don't think the prices are all that bad.

Service was good. Food was the best in the valley. I think the Majestic's fine dining is too expensive and the food is just ok for the price.....so the Mountain Room is your best bet. The BBQ pork chop was very good!

Let me start by saying you cannot beat the atmosphere of being in the center of Yosemite Valley. The service and setting were fantastic, but the food fell a little short. I ordered the rainbow trout almondine, and while it was cooked well, the "almondine" consisted of a couple of sliced almonds sitting on top. Again, it was cooked well,... More

We usually don't expect much wonderful food at a national park. Went here and the food was tasty and wonderful view of the waterfall in the dining room. Best duck dish around. Great for bigger families or if traveling with friends.

On our last trip to Yosemite, we splurged on a dinner at the Mountain Room Restaurant. We arrived a little after 6 and had no trouble getting a table (in fact the restaurant was never 100% full). The view of Yosemite Falls was mesmerizing. The food was good, something to please all of my kids, and the service was great.... More
