    I went for my Birthday I’ve heard about this place for years and wanted something special for my 55th Overall I wouldn’t go back The bread was fresh and tasty Presentation of the food was great As far as taste We ordered crab / shrimp cake Wouldn’t order again and I get those every place I travel two My least favorite We ordered the beef Wellington and lamb chops both medium They were both over cooked and need the sauce to give them flavor the potatoes and veggies were good but standard My wifes Wellington tasted more like a pot roast then a tender fillet The waiter asked if everything was ok but prior to us really getting into our meal We spent $14 for a cup of mint ice cream Bill was $175 for over cooked dry meal The service was good The drinks were good and probably the best part for someone that doesn’t drink much I usually don’t write reviews but I was asked my opinion and at this price I felt justified

    First time at The Restaurant at Convict Lake. Came during off season but the place was still hopping. The service is very welcoming. The food was really good. In such a remote place it was a bit unexpected to be that good. The wine list is very good. Will make this a regular stop when we come up to the Mammoth area.

    We had the venison strip sirloin and Beef Wellington entrees. Both meals were flawlessly prepared. Tableside Bananas Foster topped off the meal. The only downer was a large table nearby with uncorralled younguns running amok 🤩

    Overall, the meal was fine, but my husband‘s rack (pricey)was well done instead of medium and the scallops were tasty enough, but sitting on a soupy mess of cauliflower mash and sauce, so with all three items being white, the presentation did not start out appetizing. My husband‘s Caesar was tasty enough, but looked like it was just thrown into a bowl that was way too small for the salad so it was pouring over the sides and for the reputation this restaurant has I was surprised that you serve canned whipped cream instead of fresh whip cream, especially with desserts being made in house it does not make much sense to me! Because of its reputation, we were really looking forward to an amazing experience that ended up being OK . It was our first time there. An amazing area and we will visit again😊

    We had a good dinner. Wife and her friend had the Salmon and they loved it. Friend had Steak Frites, and he loved it. I had the Venison, and it was tasty, but for $50, what seemed like 4 oz of meat was definitely not worth it. If I go back I would get the steak frites, but might be awhile, $350 bill and cooking a hotdog when I got home because I was still hungry really doesn’t sit well with me🤷🏻‍♂️

    First time coming here after coming up to Mammoth for years. Loved everything about it! First and foremost, I have to mention the staff - top notch! Friendly, helpful, and only want to make your experience memorable. Our martinis with blue cheese-stuffed olives were excellent. The wine selection is superb. Food is very good and we love the chill, casual vibe. Can't wait to try again.

    A beautiful location, with excellent food and cocktails. Initially, I had thought the drive would be longer out of Mammoth, however, from Village, it was roughly 15 minutes away. Location is absolutely beautiful, and if there is time, it is great to go in slightly early and enjoy the views and the location.

    Love this place - if you are staying in Mammoth is well worth the 15 minute drive down 395. Food is delicious, excellent service, and nice cozy vibe. Come a few minutes early and drive the extra quarter mile to the lake to take in the view.
