    The server was really nice. The gentleman who fills up your water and takes plates was great. The sad part was they ran out of food items.

    Pleasantly surprised with the food and service at The Mountain Room. This was a family dinner with our two teenaged boys and after a long day of adventures in the Yosemite Valley, was just what we all needed. Boys had steaks, the filet and NY Strip, which were cooked just how they like. My wife enjoyed the trout and I the Mountain Burger. Cleaned our plates!

    Reservation is necessary. We were taken to our table right on time. We were attended to immediately. Food and drinks were brought out within 10 minutes of the order. Wait staff were friendly, polite and attentive. The meals we had were delicious (trout dinner and mushroom bourginon dinner). Good dessert. The tables were very spaced, you couldn't hear other patrons' conversation, and the ambience very mellow and peaceful. We very much enjoyed this restaurant and would recommend it.

    Always a nice treat to dine in here. We reserved a table for a family of 4 to celebrate our anniversary. After our meal, our waiter brought a small bowl of ice cream with a candle thinking it was some body's birthday. Haha. It's still a nice gesture. Pork chop was a delicious and a great value. We love the cinnamon honey/sugar butter especially with a gluten-free bun. The vegan mushroom stew was a bit pricey but tasted good. I wish they had more fun choices for mock tails.

    Good food in a relaxing environment. We enjoyed all our dishes. The medium-rare steak was exactly that, so a hat-tip to the cook is due. On both the trout and steak entrees, it seemed like the meat-to-vegetable ratio was rather high - we would have preferred to have more veggies and less meat. The "chimichurri" accompanying the trout didn't quite balance with the rest of the dish; it tasted suspiciously like the "ceviche" sauce served at the the ahwahni. Still, the meal capped off the day nicely.

    Restaurant is nice, good ambiance, but I had the Rib eye, and I can tell you it was extremely mushy, I asked for medium rare, I have had better steaks at other steakhouses and it was WAY overpiced, yes I get it, your in the park but man o man, I would not go again.

    I often eat at the mountain room when I am at Yosemite, it is one of the better options at the park if not the best option at the park. But in this last visit we had both the French Onion Soup and the Mushroom Bourgogne and they were both incredibly salty and our steak was very tough.

    Of the two restaurants in Yosemite Valley, the Ahwahnee and the Mountain Room, we have always found the food and service at the Mountain Room to be superior. Of course, the decor and history of the Ahwahnee is undeniable but we always look forward to dinner here. Creative menus, excellent service and an amazing ambiance make this our first stop for dinner when we are staying in Yosemite.

    We were told to make a reservation upon checking in but the literature provided had no contact info for the restaurant. After waiting until they opened we were immediately told they were booked full, no walk ins. After going online anyway and finding reservations available, we were seated in 45 min. Service was fine, overpriced steaks were too salty to eat, dessert was good.

    The food was outstanding. The server was a bit set in his ways regarding my choice of a medium-well steak. From a farm in the mid-west, I really don't care if he was from California and I was in his state, I know what I like, and I did not need his editorial comments for a $150 meal. I ordered, I tipped well, and I was celebrating a special occasion that week, so I was looking forward to paying attention to my spouse, not a discussion with the server. The ambiance was authentic, and the noise level was minimum. I would recommend cleaning the cobwebs hanging from the entry light. Although it was near Halloween, it was not placed there on purpose. That made me feel a bit uncomfortable. In conclusion, I would recommend eating here, the alternatives are not great!

    A big disappointment. The dining room is still beautiful, but the views of Yosemite Falls is obscured by the trees, so the ambiance is missing, The food is straight out of the freezer and microwave oven. We had trout dinner and it was $ 36.50 with only the entre. A glass of merlot was $ 17.00 more. Service was very good. The waiter has been serving there for over 50 years. the dining room was only half full and they were booked up until 8:30 pm (we arrived with a 5:00 pm reservation). Probably due to short staff of waiters. I would not recommend, but in Yosemite there is little choice of sit-down restaurants. The Awahnee dining room is at least a 6 month wait (note--The Awahnee is being remodeled for Jan, Feb, Mar, April of 2023, or so I have been told. Plan accordingly.

    The place is closed Monday and Tuesday. OpenTable didn't get the memo and allowed me to book a Tuesday only for me to find out the place is closed. Negative stars alone right there! We ended up going back on Wednesday at 7:15. They won't seat you early. We arrived at 7:00 and they sent us to the bar until 7:15. We got the smallest table in the restaurant. I wouldn't be upset if it was this for all couples, but we saw a table for 5 being used for a couple, and many oversized tables for couples. Our lucky night, eh? One thing we did luck out was our server Albert telling us they're running low on pork chops. We must've snagged the last ones as we heard him tell another table they sold out. Service was good but not great. Our appetizer was not cleared away and then our main course arrived. Mind you, we had a tiny table so o held my appetizer plate while the server placed my pork chops in front of me. Awkward and not professional. Overall good food but just ok service. It's the only place in the hotel to grab a nice dinner, aside from the Ahwahnee.
