Surprisingly fantastic

We have been in Yosemite a couple of days and saw the Mountain Room, but didn't feel like waiting. The next night there was no line and went in. Well, I can see why there was a line. The food was great. We started with a vegetable soup with a splash of curry and it was pretty much the best... read more

I had a delightful dinner at the Mountain Room Restaurant. The steak was delicious, nicely prepared, and cooked to perfection. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. The prices were reasonable and I had a delicious dinner in a relaxing cozy environment. I would recommend to fellow traveler. Reservations are not required, although it can get busy at peak times.

Given the location I was a bit sceptical of the menu....but they pull it off. The fillet and lamb shanks were divine. Wine matches to meals were exceptional. Bit pricey but quality matches the price...given the location you would expect to pay a premium.

Lynda was our server that night - she was attentive, without pestering, and had a great deal of patience. She was always around, if we needed her, and was very prompt at taking our appetizer order followed later by our main course. The food came out quickly, was hot, and delicious.

My wife ordered the Rainbow Trout and I ordered the Lamb Shanks. Both meals were just beautiful. Well presented and tasty. The service was wonderful and of course the view (the Falls) spectacular. Prices are quite reasonable for a quality restaurant. This is a great place and well worth your patronage

We visited Yosemite for NYE 2015/16 as a super special family holiday. We had booked for the Mountain Room restaurant months prior and were so looking forward to our evening with our children. It was very much get you in and out ASAP. No explanation of what was to be offered on the menu and certainly not for our children.... More

My review is based on a very mixed experience. Overall the service and the main course made up for one or two snafus. We came her for dinner after 6 hrs of hiking so we felt that we deserved a dinner that we didn't have to heat up or prepare ourselves. We came to the restaurant at about 6 and... More

I have eaten here several times over the course of several years, and the food has been consistently great. Solid staple menu items like pastas and chops are solid and hearty, as are the more experimental, California Cuisine menu items. I have had GREAT luck getting a seat with a waterfall view for almost every visit. The drinks are pricey... More
