This restaurant was amazing. Due to Covid restrictions they gave us our own private dining room. The chef greeted us personally. We enjoyed good food, great service, and a very attentive staff. We will be back next time we’re in Mammoth. Thank you.

We had high hopes for this place, but when we sat down It took the waiter at least 15 minutes to acknowledge us. When he did he was nice. The drinks and appetizers were very good.

When It came down to the entrees is where It became disappointing. I ordered the lamb shank and my boyfriend ordered the rib eye. Both were between 40-50$ a plate. Then lamb was nothing to write home about and It came with McDonald’s style French fries (pomme frites) and awful sides. Uncooked chopped zucchini and something else we couldn’t recognize, maybe a leek.
The rib eye was the worst steak I’ve ever had, dry and not cooked to temperature as ordered. For a 50$ plate the sides and steak should not be sub par. We sent the rib eye back and they graciously offered another steak and gave us a free cocktail. We decided not to go with another steak, It was that bad.

Once the bill was brought we had to wait another 15 min for the waiter to come back for our payment; there was one other table there. The chef proceeded to come out to the bar and serve the hostess and himself drinks. Very unprofessional while there are still guests in the restaurant. While we were walking out, the “chef,” still behind the bar, told us to “have a good night” in what sounded like a condescending and fake accent, clearly upset that we had sent the steak back.

All in all, not worth the $.

We had a delicious dinner from start to finish. The wild mushroom strudel was a tasty appetizer to begin with. We both had the harvest squash soup which was delicious! I had the scallop entree and the other entree was the barramundi. They were both served with well prepared and balanced vegetables. The dessert was a warm apple tart with vanilla ice cream. Our waiter was friendly and respectful. Chef Freddie came out and chatted and asked how everything was. It was a perfect evening out to enjoy wonderful food in a very pleasant environment with friendly people and relaxing French music.

Read great reviews and tried it out with 3 others. Friends were skeptical because it’s at a bowling alley! But it’s upstairs and nice. Big outdoor deck with a nice view. Food was excellent. Definitely try the elk medallions, delicious. Wine selection was good. Spent about $60 per person for appetizers and main course plus a glass of wine. The bowling alley is super modern and nice, genius idea. Let the kids bowl downstairs while the parents have a nice meal! Will definitely return next time I’m in Mammoth.

Exceptional service and high quality restaurant; excellent food and wine selection. Great unobstructed view of the mountains from their outdoor 2nd floor deck. Fabulous surprise to find it above bowling alley in a somewhat hidden location. 5*

Chef Freddy NEVER disappoints! His food is always consistently very well presented and prepared. If he ever has the veal porterhouse special, GET IT...if you don’t, you have failed the IQ test. We always have dinner here whenever we’re in Mammoth. Note: dress warmly because the heat lamps on the outdoor patio can’t keep up with the wind chill.

The place is amazing. The back drop to the mountains. But most importantly is the food and the service. Chef comes out and talks with you and provide you with good tips to order the right food. The presentation of the food is also amazing. And the food is out of this world everything was spectacular

Terrace has a great view. It can be cold but they’re doing the best they can during these times.

Mammoth’s best restaurant, bar none. One suggestion would be to add heaters outside as, in these times of COVID, one has to sit outside. But overall, a great experience every time we go.

The location is odd. The Brasserie is on the top floor of the bowling alley and there is no sign indicating the Brasserie. The view is spectacular but because of the virus restrictions all seating is outdoor which is fine but there are no heaters. It was freezing.
Food is average but the biggest complaint is that my food was stone cold. I had the short rib pasta. I can tell that they pre-cooled the penne. Not a bad thing but they didn’t reheat it and just put it on top of the short rib.

Food is very good. Nice varied wine list. A little hard to see the value because of the pandemic restrictions. Also the need to change the menu items more often
