A bit noisy when full (and it was on a Monday night!) but the tapas were generous and flavorful. Great variety of food, with nice attention to details about each dish! Loved the flatbread with lentil salad and mushrooms!

The food was amazing! Truly an unexpected joy on our travels. It's was just a nice relaxing meal. The atmosphere was wonderful! The staff was on point with the service they providers. Did not have to ask for anything it was just perfect. The owners who were on hand and were just delightful.

Just had a wonderful dining experience at the Charlotte Bistro last evening. Great environment; and bar tender was great. Food was phenomenal and drinks where outstanding. The Sierra Mule rocks! Following this, we ventured to the local Iron Door Saloon for live music with the Aaron Pearson Band, what a night!

Our visit to Yosemite included staying in Groveland, a small town an hour outside of the park. Charlotte's small plates were delicious. The buckwheat noodle salad with eggplant and mango
And the melon and tomato salad are highly recommended. You can't go wrong eating at Charlotte's!

Finally some really tasty eats in Groveland. And Penny, our waitress, was perfect in every way, efficient, friendly, back often enough but not too often. We had: butternut bisque w/ cardamom - very nice flavor combo; honey spiked chicken (battered and deep fried breast strips) w/Asian slaw - chicken very tasty with its - ?? marmalade ?? - accompaniment; Asian slaw perfect and very spicy w/ Thai chilies; smoked salmon (mousse) hard boiled eggs, yummy; braised veggies and a few beans w/ pork broth, excellent. Probably could get the veggies w/out meat for a first rate vegan dish, maybe. Drinks: Not a lot of non-alc to choose from, no champagne by the glass or split. Had the house mango margarita with habanero house infused tequila. Not my fave margarita, but, certainly effective. Dessert: Bourbon pecan pie and a very good vanilla ice cream. the cheesecake looked really good with maybe marinated dark cherries?? The place was jumping, a happening bar and the owner or manager is really friendly, funny and aiming to please. The chef happens to be Penny's son, and he looks like Elijah Wood. Prices are reasonable for this distance from the Bay area and this very high level of cuisine for good ol' Groveland. We will definitely return each year and if you are spoiled rotten on great food, you should, too.
