The Ahwahnee Dining Room conveys a feeling of elegance and refinement while maintaining a comfortable, natural atmosphere. The logs of stripped and polished sugar pine, which support the 34-foot-high beamed ceilings, reinforce the rustic ambiance that is reflective of The Ahwahnee’s mountain surroundings.

    A special lunch in a unique location! Wonderful views out the floor to ceiling windows from every table in the dining room. Delicious lunch - highlights were the Steak Frites and the Grilled Cheese with a salad. Both were outstanding. Good options on the wine list to complement the food. Grandkids loved their grilled cheese and fries from the kids menu. Definitely an experience worth planning for - as lunch is casual attire.

    Magnificent dining room at the Ahwahnee Hotel at Yosemite National Park. Gorgeous historical property, splendid atmosphere, live piano, wonderful service, excellent food. Only negative is the limited choices of entrees. The have a good selection of appetizers and deserts and their almost 100 year old sour dough bread is to die for, but for the main course you are limited to prime rib, chicken, and fish. No steaks. No other choices except if they have a special like a pork chop. But overall a wonderful dining experience.

    The shirt our waiter was wearing was quite dirty around the collar and tattered and worn. The helper was a bit surly. We asked him the soup of the day and he said he didn’t know. Didn’t offer to find out. The food was just average.

    Made a reservation for dinner on Open Table. The restaurant was late seating us, but more than compensated us with Appetizers and Desserts. We felt very well taken care of. The food was what we expected and tasted very good. It was a great National Park Lodge experience.

The food was diverse, delicious and served perfectly! It was a grand experience to pamper our needs after a 20 mile hike the day before!

    Ambiance excellent. Service Excellent - John and bartender were great! Loved the piano player during the meal. How lovely to have live background music. Food choices minimum and mediocre (only four choices for the main course). Surprising for such a nice venue. We were a table of 8 and chose different mains. Sea Bass was tough and bland, both prime rib choices (the special and normal size) just okay - loved the potatoes with the prime rib, chicken seemed to be the best choice at our table. We were surprised that there weren't more main course choices. Salad was not dressed so we had to ask for dressing. We thought the bread appetizer, though very tasty, was a bit overpriced. Wine choices were varied and great but priced a little high though to be expected in a high-end restaurant. Would we go back? Probably, but hopefully the renovation in January of the kitchen will bring it more up to snuff with the prices and the beautiful ambiance. Staff as usual was professional and wonderful.

    Sunday Brunch for our Anniversary! We got married at Glacier Point 7 years ago and celebrated our anniversary weekend in the valley, hiking, biking and camping in Curry Village. The cherry on top of our wonderful weekend was the Sunday brunch at The Ahwahnee Hotel. It was delicious and lovely, including scrumptious prime rib, made to order omelettes an array of desserts and live music played by a pianist! ❤️

    A la carte selections for Sunday breakfast were limited. My impression is they were trying to nudge folks to the brunch service. That said, the brunch service was superb. Service and ambience were outstanding. The waitress checked up on us a couple of times without being intrusive.

    We had a wonderful time celebrating my son’s birthday. The dinner was delicious. The service was good. The ambiance is the best. The piano player even played happy Birthday when Susie our waitress brought a cupcake with a candle. One thing though, it is very pricey. They even charge $13 for a small loaf of bread that is usually complimentary in most restaurants Overall I would recommend it for special occasions.

    Considering it is post Covid, the service and food were excellent. Roasted sea bass with romesco on a bed of crunchy green beans was perfect. Bruschetta with buratta, tiny peppers and greens was a treat. A hamachi crisp was light and tasty. All reasonably priced for such an historic place. And the baronial dining room with its Timbers, soaring ceiling, high windows and decorated with antique kilims is breathtaking.
