    Our dinner at the Yosemite Valley Lodge Mountain Room was superb. From the PEI muscle appetizer, to the fabulous, melt in your mouth Sirloin Cap Steak and all the fixings, to a delightful and nostalgic Bread Pudding dessert. Our Server suggested a wonderful California wine we had never tried, and both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed. The Mountain Room itself provides a stunning ambience with the vast floor to ceiling windows with a coziness of a warm lodge.

    Service was fas and impersonal. Salad was overdressed and limp. I believe we were charged for a bill we did not have. It was an average to below average experience. Would not go back.

    The service and food were great - better than our dinner at the Ahwahnee the previous night. We didn’t like that we had to pay $6 for dinner rolls - seems to be a new trend to charge for bread. Is charging for napkins next? But overall, the food and service were delicious and perfect.

    It is ok to have one meal at this restaurant during one's visit to Yosemite. On the night we had dinner the room was absolutely freezing. because we were seated in front of the vent; there was no attempt to relocate our group. There are only 5 entrees to choose from, and the price is very high. All menu items are ala carte except for ice water.

    The food was ok but way overpriced for the experience. We both got the filet with blue cheese topper, a martini each and the bill was $133. For an amazing experience I would totally pay this, but the server was a let down, obviously some guy that they hire to work for the summer and not someone who makes the dining experience unique. The filets were good, both were ordered medium but one came more medium well. I was also kinda put off by being charged $3.50 for a glass of club soda because I needed some to settle the heavy meal. All in all, a good experience but not great and it easily could be with a serving staff that is excited about the food, location, and dining experience. I would skip this place and eat at the lounge to save money.

    I had heard of the mixed reviews about the service but I found it to be excellent. The service was friendly and prompt. The view from the window was spectacular though the water wasn’t running. The food however was excellent! The steak was one of the best I ever had. It was so tender you could cut it with your fork. The bean and corn soup was also excellent. Flavorful and spicy. Overall, I would highly recommend the Mountain Room.

    It’s been some years since I’ve been to the Mountain Room. Mostly because it is pricey for what you get. You have to spurge now and then so you might as well if your in Yosemite. The food was good, though so I have no complaints. The only thing was the mussels and clams were just mussels because they were out of clams. The broth was outstanding. I had the 6 oz sirloin as which was delicious and also the the cheesecake for dessert. I also had two glasses of Cab. $100, without adding in the tip yet. Glad I had dinner alone ! Yikes! LOL

    Went there after a long day driving all the way from LA to Yosemite. Wasn’t expecting anything grand or luxurious but at least was wanting to have something decent. The mussels and clams were quite good and the cheesecake was fine. The cocktails were okay. My dad had the rainbow trout and it was quite nice. The problem was with the filet mignon. My mom and I both ordered the filet mignon. She sent hers back to be cooked a little bit more (not the kitchen’s fault - her personal preference), but the plate came back with only two pieces of meat instead of the three pieces she sent back. Mine was…strange. The meat was soggy and there wasn’t any texture. It didn’t felt like steak. The server told me it was because they used the most tender part so it was softer and they couldn’t do anything about it because even if I requested to have it replaced, it would come the same. I know what high quality meat should taste like and I don’t think I’ve ever had steak like this in any high end restaurants. Moreover, I tried my mom’s steak and the texture was fine - not like mine. Mine was like the beaf stew I left in my fridge forgotten and reheated several times. Anyway, the server was nice and took care of our complaints and took mine off the check. The only thing was when we were leaving we heard the staff talking in the kitchen guessing if we’d tip or not since we were very unsatisfied with the food - not very pleasant to hear to be honest. I would rather have pizza or bring bread with me next time I visit Yosemite.

    I was really surprised at how good the food was, given this is run by Aramark and in a national park. The rainbow trout was excellent and the potato cake they served with the steaks and pork chop was unlike anything I’d ever tasted in that genre. If you are in the park for an overnight, want a special meal, and don’t have a reservation for (or aren’t prepared for the dress code of) the Ahawanee, definitely don’t miss this.

    Well this was Dining at its finest. Started with the bread basket, Caesar salad, and the onion soup. Then came the real treat, the perfectly prepared Meal, oh my God! Saúl, he had the pork chops and I had the Trout. That was delicious (we shared). The service there was A1, Patti our server, I could see the pride in what she had presented to us. If you want to dine in here I would suggest Making a reservation a week or so ahead.

    Apparently the hostess does not read comments/ special requests of diners making reservation using Open Table. We made 5:30 p.m. reservation on Open Table. We arrived promptly at 5:30 p.m. The restaurant opens at 5:30 pm. On Open Table, we requested a table for two with window seating if possible, and never near the restroom. The hostess tried to seat us at a table in the very far back of the restaurant even though the restaurant was nearly empty and there were plenty of tables near the windows. That left a very bad impression of management. Since we declined the initial table near the back wall, the waitstaff then seated at a table by the window as requested on Open Table. The food was excellent, my steak was cooked to perfection. Medium rare. My companions teriyaki steak was vey tasty. Sides were very good. Overall, a good dining experience. A bit expensive, but one of only two fine dining venues in Yosemite National Park. Tip: Request a table near the windows, since the views of Yosemite Falls, and the spectacular views is one of the main reasons to dine here.

    Booked 6months ahead but got table closest to kitchen although 4 empty tables in middle with ambience available. When asked to be moved, request was rejected saying not fair to server. Took 20mins for server to acknowledge our existence and to provide water. Another 50mins for our order to arrive. No sign of server all evening. Worst service ever. Would recommend to stay away. Will never comeback.
