    Our server was friendly and most professional. She made us all feel welcomed and made we our dining experience enjoyable. The chicken meal I chose was a bit dry and tough. This could be improved upon. Thanks.

    This is quite an expensive restaurant. Menu is somewhat limited. The appetizers are not worth it all. That said, I had the Filet and it was outstanding as were the potatoes. The vegetables were an add on. Others at my table felt their orders were ok. The “assistant” started to take my plate await before I was finished. Also, one of the appetizer plates.

    We were initially very excited to eat here. The beginning was great. But then it fell apart. We waited for over an hour for our steaks and our 5 years old buttered noodles to be served after ordering. All the while trying to quell the complaints of our hungry child as everyone around us is served dinner. When our food finally arrives we eagerly dig in only to discover the $65 steaks are cold to the touch. Our waiter Jeff insisted that this was the fault of the cooks and all the people training in the back. He also failed to serve our child the fruit that accompanied her meal, stating it didn’t come with it. I had to point this out to him. I could tell the food would have been delicious if it was served to us hot and right after being ready. Jeff continued to blame others; offering us a $11 free desert. While we paid our $216 bill we heard Jeff talking with the table next to us stating he wasn’t charging them a second bread basket and their beer they ordered. I was confused, as their food arrived quick as can be. This was not a pleasant experience and I don’t know if I will be returning. I am sad and disappointed.

    It was a magic moment getting to eat in the Mountain Room! All the way from Australia with 3 generations present and a new son-in-law and first grandbaby! Thanks for the beautiful view, the wonderful food and the caring and attentive staff. A lifetime memory...

    The food had no real wow factor at all especially for the price - would not recommend. It's call Mountain View Room - but there is no view.

    We had an amazing experience. We had brought in some very nice bottles of wine with us. Dean, our server graciously set us up with proper stemware and wine service. The food was amazing. Love the warm goat cheese. All the entrees were delicious and the desserts were the perfect capstone to the evening.

    I made this reservation for a group of 6 of us, and prepped everybody by saying "it's in a National Park, it's about the location, so expect the food to be mediocre." But I'm happy to say I was WRONG! The food was really good, the service was good, decent wine, and we got to meander over to Yosemite Falls after - what's not to love? We loved the mussels and the lamb meatballs. One vegetarian loved her Mushroom Bourguignon, and the other enjoyed the soup of the day which was a very different and good broccoli soup (looked creamy, but was lighter and fresher somehow), and a very tasty fresh Wedge Salad. The hamburger was a little too rare, so be specific when ordering level of doneness. But it was still good, and the fries were great. Couldn't resist sharing a dessert too - nice job!

    The view is priceless which adds to a nice environment in dinning area. Our party of 3 had a variety of delicious food. We went on a Monday at 8 pm. The food was tasty but the service was very slow. The servicer was nice and polite but the food to much to long to come. Only positive was the view was wonderful..

    Excellent food and service but somewhat pricey. The reviews talk about the fantastic views but don’t listen to these. The setting is lovely but there is not really a good view from any table. Prices are set due to the monopolistic situation they have but the quality was very good.

    Glad the restaurant is up and running. Food was good just not as delicious as it use to be before covid. It is pretty sad that they now charge for bread. It was a total rip off of a purchase four tiny rolls for 7.00 at least they can ask you which type of rolls you like (one was yucky).

    The food and service were fantastic. Had reservations at 5 but had to wait until 5 after before they even opened the doors. Was a little disappointed with the room. Was led to believe it had spectacular view but it wasn't as great as the hype. A little costly but the food was very good. I would recommend.
