The food was okay and overpriced. We didn't understand why we were told it was a very good restaurant. It was our 1st night & we didn't know better

While the food is good (not great but not horrible either), the view is what brings people in. The service needs a little work. My husband and I went close to when they opened and there were plenty of open tables but they still tried to stuff us into a corner where there was no view. We asked to be moved to a middle-of-the-room table, which they did accomodate but we were baffled as to why we had to ask for it. Still, the experience didn't keep us from going back, which we did the next night.

We didn't have much choice, without travelling some distance, but we were pleasantly surprised. It's a very good restaurant, and reasonably priced, despite its captive clientele. The service was good, and pleasant, and the food was very good, including the soup.

I truly enyojed the breakfast buffet which contains some nice warm dishes and a lot of fresh fruit.

So... We thought we would do dinner as well since the breakfast was nice.
Ordered the Prime Rib. Not so "prime".

For dinner take the extra drive to Yosemite Lodge Mountain Room Restaurant and order yourself a Filet Mingon. That's a steak!

We had a great meal and view of Yosemite Falls, where we had just hiked to the top of. My steak was done perfectly and the salads were great.
