    Food was good. Restaurant was very busy so waitstaff went straight to asking for our dinner order before asking about any drinks or appetizers. This was an anniversary dinner so we really wanted to slow the pace but felt a bit rushed. Everyone was very nice though and the ambience cannot be beat.

    Regretfully went here for my Fiances birthday, despite letting them know it was her birthday ahead of time and that it was a special occasion, they did absolutely nothing to mark the occasion. Steaks were 50 to 75 dollars, which is to be expected but to get any bread was an extra charge. We ordered steaks with a side of the shrimp to go with the steak, and we finished our steaks before the shrimp even made it out. We didn't get an apology, just an excuse from our waitress that "we're still getting used to our add on system and I didn't tell the Chefs about it like I was supposed to".... Our waitress was very polite and receptive to the table next to us but not to us at all. She would ask them how they're doing, how they're food was, and checked in with them occasionally. She didn't ask once how we were or how our food was and we had to flag her down to get anything from her. Lesson learned, cooking some steaks on a cast iron over the campfire would have been a much better choice. Avoid this place it's just not worth the money for the experience they offer.

    Definitely not like it was 15 years ago. French onion soup was bland, had too many onions which weren’t carmelized, and stale bread on top. The NY strip was advertised as Prime. Not a chance the steak I had was Prime. Had to spit out a large chunk of gristle. Was coated in a sauce that was ok but the main purpose of it was to add moisture to a dry steak. It wasn’t horrible. You could probably get something similar at Sizzler but at the prices they were charging for steak, my expectations were much higher. I went here for nostalgic reasons having had a fantastic meal 15 years ago. Don’t think I’ll ever go back.

    The food was amazing. Loved the Lions Mane Mushroom, it was fantastic. What really cheapened the experience for me was the drafty table we were placed at (despite requesting a different table, away from the door), and the server who stopped by our table a maximum of 3 times - once to take our order, once to drop it off, and once to give us the check (after we asked someone else for it). In my opinion there’s no reason they couldn’t have accommodated us with a different table further from the door - the restaurant was half empty. Although our server was deficient, the other people made up for his lack of attention, pouring and refilling our water, and bussing our dishes. No one stopped by to make sure our food was good - but luckily we didn’t need anything, it was all great. It would have been nice to have that touch of hospitality especially in a fine dining restaurant like Mountain Room.

    The food was pretty basic. The restaurant was obviously semi-expensive due to the location and the view, which is lovely - but the taste of the food was extremely bland and not worth it in my opinion. In future, I wouldn’t eat here again.

    Food was good and reasonably priced for where you are. Nice space with a great view, but it was cold. I was shivering the whole time and the food got cold fast. Suggest hanging a heavy curtain separating the reception from the dining room to keep the draft out. Service was excellent. Eric kept our wine full and was very charming. Ribeye was a bit overcooked but still tasty and huge!endive salad and focaccia with red bell pepper butter was excellent.

    We have had excellent meals in the past at the Mountain Room. Sadly, last night's was not one of them. The halibut was far overcooked, the saffron rice was a stuck-together mess, the sauce uninspired. Our other entree, a portobello mushroom burger, was more satisfactory. Our server was attentive. The wine (The Pale Rose) was excellent.

    The ambiance is unbeatable. From our seats we could see Yosemite Upper Falls. The service was fine. The waiter and busser were both very friendly and highly competent. The food itself, however, was meh. My wife had the chicken, and it was very dry. The pickled carrot strings are a strange item of little interest. I had a "pork chop" that didn't look like any pork chop I had ever seen during my 84 years. And it was very tough. The best item was the cheesecake, which was almost as good as what we normally get in the Amici's Pizza chain restaurant.

    Had a wonderful dinner at the Mountain Room. Our server, Shawn, was awesome! He must have missed his calling as the Ring Master in a circus, his whole presentation is very theatrical and was thoroughly enjoyable! He made excellent recommendations and even though his section had 3 tables seated at the same time, he handled all 3 with aplomb, a true professional. The food was delightful. We really enjoyed the french onion soup and the beet salad.

    What a comfort to be able to get a nice meal walking distance from your hotel room. This is a quiet time of year, but we made our reservations a couple weeks in advance. The atmosphere is very nice, after eating at the cafeteria next door this was a treat, the prices are high, but you’re on vacation and it’s a splurge. I had the onion soup that want super flavorful, but decent. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly, it I didn’t like the delmonico potatoes, not cooked enough for me. Good broccolini and the sauce on the steak a red wine reduction was delicious. I enjoyed cheesecake for dessert.

    The room and service was excellent. Servers were very friendly and efficient. The room is beautiful and it was wonderful not to have to shout to have a conversation. Food was adequate and portions were good. Steaks were good. Pork chop had an unusual seasoning that wasn’t too enticing. Desserts were great.
