“A terrible margarita drink”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

There is a Yosemite View Mountain Lounge and a Mountain Restaurant. My comments refer to the Lounge. We had a classic margarita (about $11 for one) and after one sip it was not drinkable...almost all lime juice. I called the waitress and explained this is not a classic margarita....many of which I have had at different places. She returned it to the bartender and he found that the mix was almost all lime juice and not lime juice with other flavors and tequila. He made another one from scratch but it still was a little sour and not a true classic margarita. I will stick with wine the next time. Room is nice with a fireplae.

“Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Food was good. Standard salad bar with meal. Great service - server asked our names and used throughout dinner. He provided wine/dinner suggestions and also checked in with us to time our main course appropriately.

“Soup and salad bar included with meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We had our appetites and so the soup and salad bar (being included in our meal price) were fresh and tasty to enjoy before our main meal. Good service and comfortable atmosphere. We could not book in a time though so we had to wait 20 mins for a table one night.

“Not open at this time of year - October”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

If the hotel is going to book visitors, they should open their restuarants. Does the need to eat go away after September?

“Decent food for a reasonable price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Nice setting, good service and a decent choice of food. All mains came with free soup and salad bar which for the USA was a real bonus. Buffet breakfast had a range of hot and cold foods for a very reasonable price. Sit outside in the evening and the racoons will entertain you!
