This place never disappoints! Excellent service and friendly waiter, along with outstanding entrees. If they have the homemade strawberry rhubarb ice cream...it's a must!

We were a little hesitant about going to a restaurant at a bowling alley - but decided to go ahead based on the reviews we saw.

We were definitely not disappointed. The restaurant was upstairs with a spectacular view of the mountains - and you could not hear the bowling downstairs.

The menu, food, and service were truly a 5-star restaurant experience. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

I had the elk and it was very tasty as well as all of the vegetables that were served with it. My husband had the salmon and he likes my salmon better. The service was very good.

Ambiance and the view is really nice and the service was good. There were six of us eating and 3 had the ribeye steak which was disappointing. It was a thin cut. The chicken was the best entree. And the cocktails were really good.

Very slow unattentive service. The duck and elk dishes were horrible. Tasteless, chewy meat that was covered in overpowering sauces. Very disappointing experience based on photos and description provided on Open Table.
Cannot recommend this place.

It's our first time to visit Mammoth Lakes as a stop on a road trip from Las Vegas to San Jose.

To be honest, many thinks skiing is the major thing to do in this town, but after having this meal, you can have NO ANY OTHER PLAN in this town but have this meal. It is totally worthy to drive 4 and half hour from Neveda to here through Death Valley National Park.

The Elk dish is extraordinarily delicious. The meat is cooked in about medium rare, and tasted so tender. It's more than perfect.

We also had both kind of salad. They are fresh without a doubt. Also, the dressing complements the vegetables. As for the onion soup, the sweetness from the onions is well tasted.

If you visit Mammoth Lakes, you MUST have this wonderful meal for sure.

If you are looking for an experience that will blow your mind the Brasserie is the place for you. If I told you that you'll have the best Lamb Shanks you've ever had while eating above a bowling alley you'd probably have some questions. Well here's the deal....... Incredible food, great wine list and service was above and beyond. Thank you for making our experience so memorable. We'll be back!

Our first time. I booked through internet so when we pulled up and saw the bowling alley we were a little concerned!

Once we got settled with our waiter Eddy everything was excellent. Eddie was a real pro and the chef made the rounds and also made some excellent recommendations. The food was first class. Everything was fresh and beautifully prepared.

The mussels, carpaccio, white asparagus and mushroom strudel appetizers were favorites. The Elk, veal and lamb entrees were excellent as was the peach ice cream for dessert.

Can’t wait to come back.

The food was delicious and the service was top notch. Even though it was above a busy bowling alley, it was quiet and peaceful and there was an upscale atmosphere Of course, it's Mammoth, so dress is casual (except for the employees, who dressed like staff in an upscale restaurant). Staff were courteous and attentive and not overbearing.
My special compliments to the chef. My son and I ate out every night during my visit, The food here was by far the best. I came in thinking I would only eat a little taste of everything, but it was so good that I had to eat everything.
Thank you for the best meal I think I've ever had in Mammoth.

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.
