“Worth the drive!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

My wife and family took a trip to San Francisco that included a two day trip to Yosimite Park. It was a lot of driving (treacherous mountain driving too) so when we got to the park, we were blown away by the majesty of the landscape.

We had a plan all along to have dinner in here (make reservations!) so this was a destination for us..

This place was worth all of the effort to get here...what a beautiful experience we had! The food was ridiculously great and the experience if eating in this huge dining room was unforgettable...

We did not stay in the hotel, but walking through the lobby of this place gave the restaurant that much more charm and appeal...you feel like you are on a real get away when you are here.

You will not be disappointed!

“Awesome setting - shame about food and service”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We lunched at this amazing looking hotel. The dining room's a grand setting with it's high timber celings and huge windows and panaramic views of the towering rock walls. Unfortunately our food was uniformly of average quality. Also we had to wait nearly 30 minutes for a table - who know why given the place was only a quarter full. To make matters worse our meals took ages to be delivered. Our waiter was pleasant although seemingly oblivious to how long it took to get our food. The place is pricey and needs to lift its game.

“Wonderful Service and wonderful hotel”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We had dinner in the Ahwahnee Hotel Dining Room on both nights that we statid there. The menu does not change but there is enough variety to make it interesting. The caesar salad was especially good and the waitstaff brought us extra "white anchovies" for our salads...these are like small pickled herring and delicious. The rack of lamb was perfect!

“Classic Setting and Service”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We had lunch at the Ahwahnee as a consolation for not being able to stay in this historic hotel. If you are a fan of the Arts & Crafts period and style, this is a must! We had lunch reservations and were seated without a wait and were addressed ahead of those without reservations. The dining room beautifully detailed and the table setting first class. Our server was attentive and seemed to be of a different era, with his attention to service. Our food was fresh and delicious, if only we had time or the luck for a dinner reservation. It's worth a visit to the Ahwahnee, even if to enjoy the beautiful seating area to read a book by the fireplace.

“Aging not so gracefully.”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

The rooms were on the verge of seedy with nicked furniture and mattresses that dipped in the center. The food was poor (poor tasting, poorly arranged on plates, tasteless) and was served by wait staff that were like zombies. Not one of them would smile or offer a polite or kind word. It seemed like they hated to serve us. I would not go back there again. I would rather camp in the park than paying the expensive rates and be disappointed by the food and service at the grand hotel.
