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 Winter 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.

    If you love a good tasting menu, this is it! The fixed tasting menu was excellent all the way around. We particularly liked the Alaskan Halibut. The service level was the best I’ve seen post-Covid: knowledgeable, attentive, friendly and quietly there whenever needed without ever barraging the table with questions. Terrific ambience, which you would expect from an historic building like this!

    Amazing views. Romantic setting. Incredible food. This is one of the only multi-course tasting I have ever enjoyed. The dishes were delicious with a reasonable amount creativity and unique presentation without be ridiculously ostentatious for appearance sake. Worth the price for an amazing experience in the Sierras.

    Perhaps one of the best meals and fine dining experiences we've had in years. Chef Jason Custer will earn his star in the future. While we visited during the second week of season opening, the kitchen and service team delivered an exceptional dining experience. The creative design and flavor profiles for each course were outstanding. We were delighted to find this gem of a restaurant on our travels.

    Mono Inn is a must if you are in the area to enjoy a special dinner. Their Chef makes the evening magical and the staff provides excellent service. Can’t wait to return this summer.
