    Part of our honeymoon trip. Maybe we were spoiled after fine dining the few days before. But my vegetables were nearly cold and the asparagus in particular was so over cooked it was stringy and mushy; couldn’t even break apart the strings with a knife. I politely boxed them up and promptly threw them away. Pork chop was good and my wife was happy with her burger, but the vegetables were truly so gross I only ate one bite of them. Smores cake was delicious, of course, but the meal as a whole was not worth the $115 we paid for the two of us.

    Lovely service in a pretty room. The food was nicely presented and delicious. It's a bit expensive, but you pay for location. Corkage is reasonable and their wine list is mediocre, so bring a bottle if you care about that. The AC was on a bit high.

    The food was ok. Mussel appetizer was very good but served in a slanted bowl that made it difficult to keep the broth from overflowing. The person who cleared the table hovered like he was in a hurry for us to leave. It was not relaxing with him there.

    Food was good but a little overpriced imo. Not really much ambiance but beautiful room. Would be nice to have some outdoor seating options. Really don’t know why they don’t offer a breakfast service in such a lovely location

    We celebrated my mother’s 80th birthday with dinner at the Mountain Room. The view of Yosemite Falls was stunning. The food was good- not great but good. A bit over-priced. The service was outstanding. Unfortunately, it was between seasons and the AC was still running and it was as VERY cold. Overall, a good experience and I would recommend.

    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.

    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.
