The Ahwahnee Dining Room conveys a feeling of elegance and refinement while maintaining a comfortable, natural atmosphere.

    We made reservations for two separate tables since we couldn't reserve for more than 6 people online or on the phone. With a big party, it was hard to herd everyone together on time. So we didn't mind waiting about 10 more minutes to be seated with reservations. The host noted that we reserved two separate tables and could seat all 8 of us together at a huge round table. He was very accommodating even without asking for any requests, which we happily took. The food served for breakfast buffet was well labeled and tasted fresh. Buffets are easy for a huge party and the selection satisfied everyone's preferences. The vegan dishes were very tasty! The kids enjoyed the waffle station and pastry variety. The waiters were very attentive and friendly. Asking for group photos seemed like it was not a nuisance at all and one waitress took multiple photos from different angles. We had a great experience dining at The Ahwahnee. I would definitely come back!

    Excellent service very attentive. Can’t beat the grand atmosphere in this dining hall. Don’t know if the $12 bread is worth it. Didn’t care for the Black Sea salt. Special salmon of the day with risotto was tasty. Prime rib was a little too lean and not enough marbling to make it super tasty. However it was very tender. The pencil thin asparagus was a little woody but the baby potatoes where nice. A bit surprised when the $50 scallops arrived because there were only 3 very small ones. Boysenberry pie was disappointing. Needed more sweetness. Even the whipped cream wasn’t sweet enough and we usually don’t like very sweet desserts. Would recommend the apple cranberry cobbler. That was nice.

    Wonderful experience! Food was good and service was good although a little slow. But that’s okay. It just gave us more time to enjoy the view of Glacier Point from our seats by the window. Parking was a major problem, so leave early enough to make your reservation.

    Staff is excellent- I do wish they’d not were fragrance. It triggers migraines and no one should interfere with food by mixing extra scents. The food is decent. It’s not elite hotel good, but it’s out of this world for the location. The location is spectacular. The building is lovely without any pretension.

    Te setting is wonderful, but a few things were not great: 1. Order was wrong. Salad ordered with dressing on the side came out dressing and so my daughter didn’t eat it. 2. Noise was such that perhaps waiter didn’t hear correctly the order. Didn’t confirm it so that didn’t help. 3. Dress code wasn’t enforced. Other diners wearing jeans when we had made the effort to dress appropriately. 4. Very overpriced. 5. One meal was overdone and tough, has obviously been ready and sitting out for a while. 6. Restaurant ran out of bread.

    My friend and I celebrated our birthdays with a trip to Yosemite and we have been wanting to try dinning at the Ahwahnee for a few years. This year we decided it was time and we made a lunch reservation for 2 on open table. The dining hall it’s self feels grand with the tall ceilings and beautiful windows. We checked in and the host was very nice and even dressed professionally for lunch, so maybe that’s why we expected a little more from our experience. We got sat and a nice lady brought menus and filled our water glasses and told us our sever would be with us shortly to take our drink order and food order. We sat for about 10-15 minutes before our server passed by the table to let us know she would be back. The lunch menu is very small for what we expected but there was way more drinks to choose from. The highlight of the lunch were the drinks! Very delicious. We ordered the Turkey Sandwich and Grilled cheese both with potato wedges. The grilled cheese was lacking cheese and the potato wedges were barely warm, I didn’t even finish mine (which is unheard of). Our server was kind and came back and filled our waters which we appreciated after a hike. We probably won’t return next time we are in Yosemite, but overall we are glad we chose to experience the dining at least once.

    Ordered the king cut prime rib. Most expensive steak I’ve ever had. Not worth it. Same for the $33 glass of wine. Atmosphere is much better than the food. Food is much better in the Ahwanee Bar & Grill.

    The meal prices were too high for the amount we eat. We did not have breakfast or lunch at the hotel; we did have an evening meal in honor of my husband's birthday. The scallops were nicely presented, but flavorless (we have had tastier scallops many other places). The apple/cranberry crisp for dessert was way too large for 1 person. We ordered 2 desserts expecting them to be "smallish"; I could not finish mine. It would have been helpful for the waiter to advise us on the size of the dessert. Our waiter was cordial. Our favorite part of the dining experience was the ambiance of the dining room and the piano music.

Biggest surprise was the extraordinary standard of the Ahwahnee Restaurant!! Every meal was impeccable and a work of art. Worth staying there just for the food. Simply outstanding.

    Wonderful experience. Service was great. All staff were soooo warm and welcoming. There was live music- a pianist on a grand piano. Food presentation was nice but flavors were just okay. We had the arancini and tiger prawns for appetizers. Then had the chicken and scallops for our mains. And apple cranberry cobbler for dessert. I didn’t feel the food was worth the price, but I would still eat here again because the experience was so special. It was such a magnificent space and lovely ambience.

    Food was top-notch. My pork chop was the tenderest I've ever had. Loved the pearl onions, apple, yam, and sauce. We both had and find the butternut squash soup delicious. Sourdough bread along the best I've had. My husband thought the scallops were perfect. Creme brulee was wonderful. And I appreciated the birthday song. Wine was a tad pricey but considering how far away it is from anything, understand. Wait Service perfect. Reservations and reception desk had some communication issues. Special meal for a special day

    This is an amazing property rich with ambiance and California history. The dining room is more like a perfectly rustic ballroom and the staff are excellent. We went for the breakfast buffet. My daughter loved the vegetarian and vegan options, my son loved the buttermilk blueberry pancakes, and I thought the bacon was absolutely delicious.

    Avoid seafood, order simple foods, very good mixed drinks and wine, very good berry pie. Waitresses not professionals, rushing you then disappearing. The setting is beyond beautiful, have a drink at the fireplace or on the outdoor plaza before.
