My girlfriend and I both had the flat iron steak and we both ordered it medium. Mine returned perfect and hers was well done. Not sure how the same order coming back to the same table gets messed up. They corrected it but my meal was cold by the time hers came back. Vegetables were somewhat oily and slightly over... More

We were really looking forward to eating here, because we have had great experiences in the past, but two nights in a row we were sorely disappointed now that Aramark has taken over as the park's food vendor. Steak was way overdone, polenta was gluey and gross - they even managed to mess up a basic hamburger by adding ten... More

This is a review of the Sunday brunch we had there last week. It was one of the worst restaurant meals we've had in years. In general, all of the food in the buffet was tasteless, overcooked, dried out... And cold! For example, my Eggs Benedict: undercooked eggs on top of a not-toasted soggy English muffin and cold; the bacon,... More

We were celebrating our anniversary, so decided to splurge at the Mountain Room Restaurant. I had the salmon for an entree and it was wonderful. For dessert the flourless chocolate torte - also great. Our service was very professional.

The food is ok. Nothing special and a bit overpriced, but I swear Aramark is trying to teach their employees horrible customer service. Particularly with regard to the food and beverage operations. Absolutely horrible service.

we went their for diner one night with friends. They loved it. They had the trout and we had chicken. The food was excellant and the service was outstanding. It was more reasonable than the dining room at the Majestic Hotel. I recommend this restaurant and not because of the lesser price but because it was good and offered more... More

We visit Yosemite every year at this time for Chef's Holliday. With a big Ahwahnee (majestic) dinner one night it's nice to go to the Mountain Room. It is near Yosemite Lodge. The menu offers a great variety of fare from trout to lamb to steaks. With nice large salads and large desserts to round out the menu. The corkage... More

Having eaten here in 2012 we were already prepared for the pricey menu. We arrived late into the park and went to the restaurant within 1/2 hour of closing. We were so pleased to find the meals arrived as I would expect them to arrive at the beginning of the night. With young children and fussy tastes they ordered a... More

Ate here for 2 dinners. Food is good. Service was good and friendly. Recommend rainbow trout, it was good. Wasn't the best I ever had but certainly not the worse. Actually preferred the food here than the Majestic restaurant.

For dining all the way in Yosemite Valley, and considering our previous camp experiences have all been eating in the campground this was pretty good food! We were recommended the chicken and the pork chop when we checked, which were both great. The French onion soup was recommended, which ended up being slightly above average. We went here because reviews... More
