We were celebrating our anniversary, so decided to splurge at the Mountain Room Restaurant. I had the salmon for an entree and it was wonderful. For dessert the flourless chocolate torte - also great. Our service was very professional.

The food is ok. Nothing special and a bit overpriced, but I swear Aramark is trying to teach their employees horrible customer service. Particularly with regard to the food and beverage operations. Absolutely horrible service.

we went their for diner one night with friends. They loved it. They had the trout and we had chicken. The food was excellant and the service was outstanding. It was more reasonable than the dining room at the Majestic Hotel.
I recommend this restaurant and not because of the lesser price but because it was good and offered more variety than the Majestic.

We visit Yosemite every year at this time for Chef's Holliday. With a big Ahwahnee (majestic) dinner one night it's nice to go to the Mountain Room. It is near Yosemite Lodge. The menu offers a great variety of fare from trout to lamb to steaks. With nice large salads and large desserts to round out the menu. The corkage is a little high at $25 per 250ccs. So take a nice bottle with you. Their wine list is reasonable for instance, Robert Mondavi, Coastal Meritage is $35. You can get better wines in the $50-70 range.
The wait staff is very pleasant and on top of it.
My only small negative is that the menu doesn't change much.

The menu isn't much to write home about (corn chips with salsa, chilli con carne, soup of the day, sandwiches... no hearty meals or sides of fries or anything) but the atmosphere was fantastic. Roaring fire and plenty of weary travellers speaking all sorts of languages and enjoying the wilderness together. We spent the election night here coincidentally (New Zealanders who forgot what an important day it was) and that certainly was memorable! Fantastic waiter who was very attentive and chatty.
