“Lunch delight”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

A wonderful place to enjoy excellent prepared food. Generous portions with cordial friendly service. They have an onion soup that is the best I have ever tasted. I highly recommend making this a restaurant to enjoy a great lunch.

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

As soon as you went through the doors you were made to feel very welcome. The service was great and the food amazing. My husband and I had the "baked potato soup" to start. I cook a lot of soups back home in Australia but hadn't come across this one, they kindly gave me the recipe to do when I got home. A really enjoyable evening

“Good little eating house”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

We ate here three times as there was not a lot of choice for dinner in this small busy town on the Yosemite trail. Very good service and excellent value for money. Menu is big enough for most tastes but beware as portions are large! We found that even sharing an appetiser was too much as main course comes with a salad or soup. If the clam chowder is on offer go for it - it was excellent. Wine list is relatively short but good and reasonably priced. Make sure you get a reservation as this town was very busy even in early season.

“Sweet dinner house.”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

Great food, great value and good service. Portions were generous and yummy. Steak was perfectly prepared. Often, when traveling near a place like Yosemite, the restaurant fare can be disappointing; however, Mariposa, is filled with wonderful little restaurants. We hope to return to Mariposa and Charles Street Dinner House.

“Very pleasant experience”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

On the lookout for somewhere for dinner we came across the Charles Street Dinner House on the main street in Mariposa. What a very pleasant surprise! What we found was a cozy, welcoming restaurant with excellent food. My pork loin entree was delicious - just the right size, with a melt in your mouth filling of cranberries, blue cheese and walnuts. The accompanying roast potatoes were also cooked to perfection. In fact, we were so impressed that we returned another evening when the chicken cordon bleu dish and the pasta specialty of the day were equally wonderful. The restaurant is small, so it is best to book ahead at the weekends. The staff is very friendly and attentive, and French and Spanish are spoken, so foreign visitors are catered for in more ways than one. All in all if you are staying in Mariposa because of its proximity to Yosemite, make time to call in to this exceptional restaurant.
