“Pricey and Pretentious”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

I thought the restaurant was pricey and presents itself better than it actually is. It probably gets away with it because it is near the park gate. The best thing about it was the riverside table.

“O.K.”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Our hotel suggested this establishment and also gave us a discount card. Parking is a bit difficult but the view of the river is worth the effort. The four of us ordered different meals and were pleased with the choices....though I am not sure my crepés were not of the "warmed over" variety! The service level could be improved upon - we were doing fine until some locals arrived - we then felt as though our waiter delayed our orders until he had socialized with them. Not sure I would visit again....prices high...obviously you pay for the view!

“Lovely surroundings and food”
Reviewed September 21, 2012 via mobile

We went here as we had a voucher for 10% off. We sat outside which was very pretty especially if you get a table around 7 as the sun goes down. The food was delicious and a perfect size. None of this over facing American portions where your full on fries!! Choice of potatoes and rice, with a salad or soup to start for about $26. Would recommend as a nice restaurant to eat.

“Amazing food, amazing view”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

We happened upon the Gateway restaurant on our way to Sequoia National Park. What a delicious experience. We dined on the outdoor deck and enjoyed the spectacular view while we were amazed at the high quality food offered. Our server was friendly and helpful. A wonderful experience.
