    Wonderful atmosphere and service in a beautiful setting. We had 2 meal experiences. Our fish entree was one of the worst restaurant meals we’ve ever had. Overcooked poorly seasoned and bland. We hesitated going back. The second night we ordered steak and it was delightful. Recommendation: go to this restaurant but avoid the fish entrees at all costs. Order the steak and you will be happy.

    Food was marginal at best. Prices were extremely high for low quality food. Service was impersonal and infrequent. We've eaten there for many years and it was great, very disappointing on this trip.

    We were here in the winter on an off weekend. The place was only half full but it was later than the usual dinner rush time. Service was good. Food was good. My husband had the pork chop and I had the chicken Marsala. Desserts were so-so, not really worth the $11 each. We will eat here again because other than Base Camp and the Ahwahnee dining

    The venue was very nice. Service was very slow probably because they were severely understaffed. The food was average but most disappointingly cold. Everything was cold, even the coffee. This made the entire meal a huge disappointment

    Food is generally fine and the waiting staff friendly and welcoming. Manager and receptionist unpolished, out of sync with staff. Though our table was available, they refused to sit us down, telling we would need to wait for “a majority” of our party to arrive. When 3/4 did (within 5 minutes), they still refused to do so, unreasonably raising the demand to 4/4 presence: “restaurant policy”, no further explanation. Lack of courtesy, not adequate for the place.

    My wife and I were impressed not only with the excellent service but also the delicious meal. We tried the filet mignon and ribeye. Both tasty and tender to perfection. The drinks were good and our waiter Jeff knew the menu well. His recommendation on the pudding cake desert was a plus. We will definitely be making reservations next time up.

    Christmas Day Dinner was wonderful. The service was impeccable, and the food was cooked to perfection. We had the pork chop with mole, Mary’s chicken, and 2 steaks (one med-rare with blue cheese and one medium well cooked as is). We ordered the bean and artichoke dip thinking it would be more of a hummus type spread and did not know it had cream cheese (and did not think to ask), but it was very good as well. The Caesar salad dressing was divine and highly recommend that. For dessert, we had the bread pudding. It may be the best bread pudding we have ever had.

    What a memorable meal! Our appetizers were the French Onion soup and Caesar salad, both of which were delicious. The entree was Filet Mignon with Bordelaise sauce and mashed potatoes. The beef was tender and perfectly cooked and the sauce was excellent. I tried something new for dessert: Bread Pudding with Salted Caramel Sauce. It was unexpected and oh so decedent! My companion had the Cheesecake with fruit topping and enjoyed it. The dining room is large but the noise level was acceptable for fine dining. We went at night so we couldn't enjoy the view, but the interior was well decorated, casual but tasteful. The service was great. We received water as soon as we sat down and our waiter arrived shortly after. He was very attentive and not at all intrusive. The prices were high but appropriate for the quality and quantity of the food. This was our best dining experience in Yosemite. We are very happy we chose the Mountain Room for dinner.

    The Mountain Room is a very nice location for a romantic dinner with your significant other. It was dimly lit and clean. The big windows allowed the full moon to shine into the dinning area and pour upon my beloved as it did the first night we met 22 years ago. I would definitely recommend and revisit this place.

    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!
