“Beautiful Restaurant - Go For Breakfast”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

This is our favorite place to eat breakfast in Yosemite. The prices at breakfast are not bad at all - $25 for the buffet, which has just about everything that is on the regular menu. The fruit and pastries are quite good, and the eggs, breakfast meats, and potatoes are above average for a buffet. The even offer Eggs Benedict on the buffet. Waffles and pancakes are what you would expect - they always suffer by not being fresh. An ala carte "American" breakfast is about $10 (not including juice and coffee). The service here is really hit-or-miss - I've had terrific servers (like on my most recent visit), and not-so-good. My most recent dinner experience was almost four years ago, and it was SO bad that I will not go back for dinner. We were a party of 12, and our server totally ignored us - it wasn't until I went to the maitre'd after about 30 minutes that the server finally took our order. And even after that service was slow. It was a horrible dinner. We contacted the hotel after we returned home and never received any kind of follow-up or acknowledgement of the incident.

“Stunning Dining Room”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

We had two breakfasts and one dinner in the hotel dining room. The breakfasts could not have been better - great food with wonderful service in a beautiful setting. Dinner was a big disappointment so we recommend going for breakfast.

“Great Ambiance - Not So Great Food”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Wow, what a dining room. It's like a big hall in a log cabin. Hard to imagine it has been there since 1927 and they actually have kept it looking nice.

The wait staff is slow and seemed like they could care less during our lunch visit. The food was pricey, which we expected given the location. But unfortunately it was also under seasoned and bland. The cheese steak sandwich was dripping with grease, the fettuccine basil alfredo was missing parmesian as well as flavor. It also arrived glazed over like it had been waiting for someone to deliver it to our table. The calamari appetizer was unique, like a calamari steak was sliced into strips, breaded and fried (no tentacles) and likely arrived frozen given its uniformity and so so flavor.

I would rate the service and food 1 star but give a 3 star overall only due to the location.

“Elegant and somewhat pricey. Worth it.”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

The Ahwahnee Dining Room is a huge, old style National Park, dining room. The service is excellent and unhurried; the views are spectacular (but try to get a table near a window and at least halfway down the dining room on the window side; and the food is very well cooked.

The prices are very much on the high side, but the amenities make it worthwhile.
