Built on the shores of Mono Lake in 1921 and originally used as a bunkhouse, Mono Inn has a long history as one of the best gathering places for miles around. 

Offering weary travelers a welcome respite from the road, the famed bar and dining room afford breathtakingly unparalleled and ever-changing views of Mono Lake.

Chef Jason Custer takes our modern farm-to-table cuisine concept to another level with his Summer Tasting Menu and emphasis on local sourcing.

Located at the back gate of Yosemite National Park, close to Mammoth Lakes, and easily accessible from the Bay Area and Southern California, the new Mono Inn offers one of the most extraordinary dining experiences in all of California.

    The service was perfect friendly but not distracting or time consuming, invisible and prompt. Food was pretty to look at and delicious, and the wait was non existent The views were as always gorgeous The restaurant from entry to restrooms to conference area were clean and appropriately interesting and appointed. Parking was convenient Owner manger and chef partners were available in just the right way, and fortunate for us the restaurant was not busy though I suspect it would never feel "hectic" or rushed....but peaceful and private.

    Masterful artistry, incredible flavors, attentive service. Fantastic, worth the price and a true culinary experience! If you are able, go treat your pallet to the Mono Inn and the truly beautiful creations of chef Jason Custer. We loved all of it! A Wow!

    Terrific food as always, but the wine pairing menu was very poorly managed. Other than the first wine, none of the others came out at the right time and in one case we waited so long for the wine to come out that the course itself was cold. We finally ate it because we couldn’t wait any longer and we actually finished this course before the wine ever showed up.

    Far away, the best meal you’ll have in Mono county, but it’s also one of my favorite meals I’ve had… anywhere!

    I enjoyed the best celebration dinner ever at the Mono Inn. The food was outstanding, the setting spectacular, the ambiance peaceful and beautiful, all with excellent service. We can’t wait to go back again soon.
