Food service and ambiance was outstanding! We will definitely be back!
Great location. Very good to excellent food. Superb people and service. Prices a bit high but quite reasonable for an out-of-the-way resort with really good food. We drive nearly four hours for dinner and a room.
Very nice restaurant. Excellent food, great service and friendly server. Will go again.
A little pricey, but well cooked and seasoned food. Wine and dessert were good as well!
Everything from the location, atmosphere, food, drinks, and service were perfect. We had the clay pot garlic, beef wellington, the special (beef short rib), and fuji apple and mascarpone strudel. All were delicious, especially the wellington that simply dissolves in your mouth it is so tender. The prices are extremely fair for what you are receiving. Overall, it was a very pleasant find and kinda feels like a hidden gem.
Fabulous!! Waiter was excellent and the food and wine is outstanding!
The Restaurant at Convict Lake is our favorite while up in Mammoth.
We had a lovely dinner and Terri was terrific
Great evening, with delicious food, and friendly, timely service.
Warm, rustic & inviting atmosphere, heady cocktails, delicious cuisine and very friendly & attentive service. Stunning setting amidst the mountains and adjacent to the lake, with a cozy feel, nice wine list and flavorful courses. Went with a group of 4 and all agreed it was a wonderful experience.
We have been coming here for 20 years and have always enjoyed it. They are friendly and helpful. They just want to make your experience as good as they can.
Food and presentation was excellent. Our server was attentive and timely. An awesome birthday dinner!
This was wonderful. Sat in a booth looking out a huge window with Aspen trees in full fall color. Service was great. Food outstanding. Perfect place for a special celebration or just a fine Dinner
What a hidden gem! I didn’t even know this restaurant existed until I saw them on Open Table when I was looking for a place for a great date night while we were in town for the weekend. Short drive from Mammoth. Quaint little booths with a beautiful fireplace in the center of the room. The food was amazing!! We started with the triple mushroom appetizer then my husband had the filet mignon which was cooked to perfection and just melted in your mouth. I had the chicken with mushrooms and mashed potatoes. Chicken was wonderful. Very tender and moist, not dry at all. Mashed potatoes were my favorite. We also shared a scoop of their homemade Bailey’s Chocolate Chip Ice Cream!! I highly recommend this place for an amazing meal, great and attentive service. Amazing!!!
Very nice ambience, spacious, rustic interior, good service.
Amazing food!!! Great service. And loved the martinis.
Excellent service and impeccably seasoned food. They also had delish homemade cherry ice cream!
Since Covid they put up the plexiglass between booths. I think it’s great and helps mute conversations at other tables. I hope they permanently leave it up!
The Restaurant at Convict Lake is one of the best if not the best restaurant in the Eastern Sierras. The fillet and the beef Wellington were cooked perfect! Save room for desert-you cannot finish the night without a banana’s foster!!
Always a wonderful experience...our server,Sarah, was terrific!(ps..wish the chef would put the Mushroom soup and fab mustard sauce back on the menu... and possibly a gourmet burger)
Amazing food and staff.
Lovely spot, delicious food!
Excellent service, the best food. We’ve been coming here for the 30 years we’ve been owners in Mammoth Lakes. Always romantic and elegant, 5 Stars!!!
Food and service was excellent! Will definitely go back again
Food was solid, but not outstanding.
Unfortunately, it was just okay. I was a bit disappointed because I had been many times before and wanted to share with first timers. I made the reservations to sit outside under the tress with the lights. We were seated over on the side at a table with so little, that at dinner they had to bring a goblet full of LED candles to be able to see. Food was okay, not as good as previous visits, but the tomato soup was GREAT. Only one meatless entrée choice. I know most don't care about that, it's just nice for me to have a pick. Two in our party enjoyed steaks for dinner and enjoyed them. Finally, we always bring our pups to the Convict Lake outdoor dining. The current rule, is no pups at all. We were told a pup nipped an employee. So, our 9 week old and 12 year old had to sit in the car. Another family had a who had to car as well, so just prepared. It's not the end of the world , just good to know. We will try again all the crazy is done.
The food was superb, I have not had a more delicious piece of Alaskan halibut prepared! The ambience was very pretty with string lights outside and the ambience was romantic for a date or special occasion. The steak with blue cheese was also excellent. The wine selection was very decent and pricing was very reasonable. We would definitely return again if/when we return to Mammoth.
They did an excellent job of making the COVID-19 required outdoor dining a very pleasant experience.
The ambiance eating outside and the food were great. The service was not so good--very slow. The hostess even volunteered when we were seated that our waiter had many tables.
One of our all time favorite places near Mammoth. Great food with a beautiful presentation. Excellent service and ambience. We never miss going here when we are in the area.
They are doing a fabulous job outdoors. The trout and rib eye were excellent and great cocktails. Service wonderful and engaging. One slight greivance. We were seated near the driveway to the cabins and stores and the employee vehicles were driving by fairly fast. If they were slower, the noise and dust would have been reduced.
Excellent food selection and presentation. Service was great. Given COVID, outdoor dining was in a grassy area that some of our dining chairs were uneven. Nice experience.
The meals and service were outstanding and the ambiance with seating on the lawn in front of the restaurant was very special.
It is good for the restaurant that they will be able to resume indoor dining prior to colder weather coming soon, but the outdoor dining was special this week.
We had a great birthday celebration at The Restaurant at Convict Lake! The outdoor dining was pleasant and relaxing. Service and food were impeccable!
We have visited Mammoth Lakes every summer for many years. The restaurant at Convict lake never fails to delight us and our taste buds!!! Service is excellent and team go out of their way to make your dining experience memorable. Kudos to restaurant staff for providing a 5 star dining experience
An impeccable meal. Outstanding selection, outstanding food, and outstanding environment. Second time eating there and it was just as perfect as the first time.
Covid report só a little stressed
First time here, and will definitely be back! Everything from our drinks to appetizer to our main meal and dessert could not have been better. Afterword, while walking to our car, we were entertained by a family of deer playing on the grass. Highly recommend!
We’ve had dinner twice during our August 2020 stay at the Convict Lake Resort.
Dining has moved outside to an alpine meadow with twinkling lights. I highly recommend the trout, the beef wellington and the creme brûlée.
It is dog-friendly as well! Reservations on Open Table are a must!
This place never disappoints. Even with the restrictions due to COVID-19, our dinner was top notch. The food was incredible and the service was impeccable. We were seated outside under the aspen trees with lights hung amongst the trees. Very beautiful atmosphere to enjoy a perfect meal!
Service was great! Beautiful outdoor dining!
We absolutely love everything about this restaurant! The ambiance, service, and food are all amazing. We come here for all occasions, both special and everyday dining. I recommend Convict Lake Resort restaurant to all . It’s awesome!
