Food was average, wait service was slow. Waited 10 min to be seated in a half empty restaurant for dinner. Would not even seat us in an empty room for breakfast as it was reserved for a tour group that was not even supposed to arrive for half hour. Skip this restaurant and go next door to the pizza place.

Lovely location, front of house very informal. The food was ok but that's about as generous as I can be. More "cheap carvery" than restaurant. Take my advice and go for an al fresco pizza and salad next door. You'll be less disappointed.

Located on the site of Yosemite View Lodge. Had an excellent fish diner, garnished with very tasty vegetables. Service was good and the price was reasonable. Wide and varied menu selection.

Prices were reasonable, and most entrees included soup and the salad bar. The soups were very good, but the salad bar included only iceberg lettuce (in addition to a bland cole slaw and a reasonable pasta salad.) The entrees were not impressive. The chicken breasts and the salmon fillet came in shapes not present in nature, and surely were found in a box in the freezer.

We ate at the Wawona twice for dinner, the Ahwanee once and the Yosemite Lodge once and probably liked it the best. The view of the falls is amazing, service good and the prices 30% cheaper tha the vaunted Ahwanee. Was the food better? Nah but value counts and the warm sourdough bread was good and you don't have to reserve long in advance. Less snobby too!
