    A great meal in an outstanding location. Great service and good food. A lot of people do not like the buffet style that the Dining Room has moved to, but for us it was nice because we could try out a little bit of everything. The one complaint is the value. It’s probably the most expensive dinner you can have in Yosemite Valley (although the Mountain Room might give it some competition), and at $100 per person (with drink, tax, and tip) it seems excessive for what you get. Still, it’s a very memorable experience to eat here.

    Of course the dining room was amazing. The service was also top notch - friendly, attentive, and personal. The pianist was perfect for the setting. The food was good, but not as good as the rest. Buffet style with a good selection of sides and main dishes. The prime rib was wonderful, but the fish and chicken were a bit dry and flavorless. Desserts were also not so amazing, though the lemon bars were delicious! The cheesecake bites were dry and the fruit cup was elastic and not crunchy. All in all, it was an experience though maybe overpriced. The brunch seems a better meal choice.

    We had the buffet that was offered. The food was disappointing. The waitress acted bothered. The food and wait staff at Yosemite Lodge Mountain Room was excellent.

    We hiked Vernal& Nevada falls, went to housekeeping beach then dressed and went over for our reservation. We got a drink at the bar first ($75 +tip) and went to the open room and played cards, very enjoyable! We got a waterfall view table! The ambiance and atmosphere was very nice. The prime rib was excellent. What is hard to swallow is 4 drinks were another $75 plus tip. Tito’s, we’re not talking Hendricks. And I’d do it again! Thought you might like to know prices.

    It was OK. I’ve wanted to go there for years. The food and service were good, just nothing was extraordinary as I was expecting for the price points. It’s still worth a visit for to its amazing location and history.

    We love the Ahwahnee dining room but were a little disappointed this trip. I believe they had recently opened and perhaps were understaffed. We had to wait past our reserved dinner time to get a table. The waiter was very chatty with another table and ignored many of his other tables. The food was fairly good but some offerings were empty and the rice pilaf wasn't fully cooked. I would have enjoyed a potato dish to go with the prime rib, which was excellent. The ambiance of that dining room is always terrific but this anniversary dinner was a little underwhelming.

    This was a mediocre buffet. Food was average at best. Fried chicken tenders? No potatoes only cous cous and rice. One vegetable choice. Deserts looked like out of a box. Asked for a wine list by the glass. Waiter asked what wine i wanted, said cab, merlot or blend. He brought me a merlot and gave me no options. After i ate a salad and was eating my entree he told me they had soup if i was interested? Finally they brought a bread basket and the bread was soggy. The bus boy kept my water filled though. I was warned about this place and did not listen. Please listen to this unless you want a mediocre buffet for $63.

    Although the atmosphere is amazing, I definitely would not return when they have the buffet. The selection was not very large and most options left more to be desired. Our waitress barely knew anything and the drinks and wine list, and we couldn’t have ordered another drink if we wanted to because she was impossible to catch. The price they are charging for the buffet is ridiculous and they couldn’t even split our check the way we wanted to!

    Wonderful dinner @ the Awhanee. Buffett dinner (due to kitchen renovations), but still excellent food. Fri-tip, prime rib, salmon, assorted veggies & excellent dessert choices. Good for a special occasion!
