Hey, it's in a National Park so it's pricey so I'm not going to nag about that :-). We had the soup of the day as starter. It was lentil soup and it was great. As entrée my wife had the Caesar's Salad, I had the Flat Iron Steak and my son the grain fed beef burger. All tasted really... More

Breathtaking views of Yosemite Falls and good food.....what more can you ask for. Will not take reservations unless party of 8 or more but did not wait more than 10 minutes for a table.

Having been told earlier that there would be "a short wait" if we wanted a table at 8pm when we did arrive we were told the wait would be "20 or 30 minutes." 40 minutes later I enquired why I hadn't been seated, they had made a mistake and I would be next. I should add that when we did... More

We eat here every time we come to Yosemite. Typically the food is pretty good. This trip the filet was grainy and a bit overcooked and the vegetables were undercooked, but the baked tater was good. A bit expensive for what you get.

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

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
