    We ate here both Thursday and Friday nights during our stay in Yosemite. Both nights the filet mignonette was excellent. Thursday wait service was excellent. Friday our waiter was fair— never offered another glass of wine and would stop by other tables to show them our food before serving to us. Overall a gem in Yosemite!

    We loved our meal at Yosemite Valley Lodge Mountain room. The trout was perfectly prepared and our waitress was a real pro. Considering how busy it was, we felt well cared for once we were seated. The only negative was the experience at the host/ess station - not as professional as the service once seated. That said, in a remote location with difficulty hiring staff - they were wonderful!

    Chicken w/mole sauce and rice was awful. Maybe shadow the cooks at Base Camp for tips on how to cook tender chicken. Rice was tasteless and dry. The meal wasn’t worth $10 much less $32. The ‘view’ that is your marketing strategy is non existent for too many tables.

    Nice restaurant. Potatoes were excellent, Broccoli was way undercooked, Cap Steak was nothing special but was very small and very pricey. Ate at 1850 in Mariposa tonight and everything was awesome for 2/3’s the price.

    Was disappointed that our party of 3 requested a Falls view in reservation made 3 months ago. Hostess said there were none available. However upon being seated not at a Falls view table there was a table for 4 with the Falls view that sat empty from the moment we were seated and remained empty till we left an hour later.

    We had 6:30 reservations and were taken right on time. Friendly staff. The menu is small but we both enjoyed our meals. I loved my garden salad (good size, good dressing) and my husband enjoyed his French onion soup. Our main courses were excellent as well. Only one vegetarian option. Service was good, our server was friendly. The prices are pretty high but you are paying for the location. We had already been in Yosemite for several days so seeing the falls from the window was not as exciting as I had thought it would be when I booked the table months ago. The one thing that made no sense to us was why they turned away a little family with two children who arrived late to their reservation. They told the family they only hold the table for 15 minutes (I understand) and that they were full. But my husband and I counted 10-12 empty tables near us, most of which were never filled the entire time we were there at our meal for over an hour. Strange and we felt bad for the family. The room never felt full. Overall a nice experience in a easy to get to location on the campus of the hotel.

    We stayed at the Ahwahnee hotel four nights but were surprised to find that the dinner service there is now a self serve buffet? So we got reservations at the Mountain room at Yosemite Lodge. They are still providing table service at dinner and it was excellent. We both had French onion soup. Delicious. I had filet mignon with blue cheese topping. Served with delmonico potatoes and grilled baby bok choy. Washed it down with a nice merlot. My wife had the mushroom bourguignon served over polenta. She loved it. The grilled trout with saffron rice looked good but we didn’t try it. Service was friendly and attentive.

    Salad was drowned in dressing, main courses fish and burger were better but not great. I don’t think the restaurant cares as they not once how the food was, just if they could remove the plate. I would not eat there again as the quality did not match the price.

    This was the perfect way to end our trip to Yosemite. We got seated by the window so we had a good view of Yosemite falls. The filet was fantastic but we can't stop raving about the potatoes that came in the side! So good that I want to attempt to make at home! Nice and relaxing, beautiful artwork all around. Also quick, friendly service. Would definitely come here again!

    Gave us a table in the corner. Lots of open tables elsewhere and refused to give us any of them. Yet over 7 couples came in right after and they were seated at much better tables. We are a retired couple and they did the same thing to bother older couple about 30 minutes later but they refused to sit at the first 2 tables they brought them to and waited until they seated them at an acceptable table. We come to Yosemite every year and will never return to this restaurant again. We were totally disrespected.

    This trip is on our bucket list as one of the things to do in our senior years. It has been fabulous experiencing Yosemite without camping and staying at the two lodges in the valley. This was by far the best meal this week! They sat us near the window looking up to the water fall. The steaks were delicious!

    The Filet Mignon was the best steak that my wife and I have ever had...each piece literally would melt in our mouths. The French Onion soup was awesome, too. Our server was outstanding and very knowledgeable about the menu, answering each of our questions. The server’s assistant was extremely helpful and filled our water glasses no less than seven times without being asked. She was very attentive. We tried to book reservations for a second dinner but they are booked through the end of the month. We were blessed to be able to have dined there last night with a table for two directly overlooking the beautiful waterfall and experiencing the deer that walked very close to our table.

    A really lovely dinner with excellent food - the steaks were incredibly tender and we enjoyed the different presentation options. The wedge salad was one of the freshest salads I have had in a really long time at a restaurant. My family still talks about the potato side dish. Nice ambiance and a special view make this restaurant if you can get in , a great way to end the day in beautiful Yosemite Valley. The service was attentive and even though it was completely booked and there had been a wedding reception earlier in the day, all went smoothly and we did not feel rushed.

    We chose to dine out for our 35th wedding anniversary. We were married in the Yosemite chapel and have come back to the Valley multiple times annually except during COVID. This was a d sad proviso treat snd a lovely evening. The mountain room is spacious and the views of the mountain lovey. The waiter was charming and helpful. We enjoyed the steak dinner a nice mellow glass of the Josh Cabernet. Perfect evening.
