A decent enough experience. Food was pretty average. Salad bar and soup with many of the menu options. Choice of local beers. Gluten free pasta option. Service was quite slow but friendly and courteous. Wasn't amazed by anything. Just average all around really.

After a disappointing meal at the nearby mountain room we went next door to have snack and a beer. Service was excellent and super friendly. Try the Tioga-Sierra Half dome wheat beer with some tacos.

We ate at the restaurant the first night and was not impressed by the steak. i ordered medium and my bf ordered medium rare. Both came out pretty much the same-well done. Next night we ate at the pizza place next door and it was really good.

Very basic food. Reasonable menu but average food. Stick to things like chicken or pasta as you cant go far wrong with those.

You will be dazzled to sit and eat here. The food is fantastic and the ambiance is holistic! Ask for a window seat to enjoy the beauty outside while you savor the food.

We had the breakfast buffet and it was lousy, especially for $14.99 per person! I recommend that you skip it and go into Yosemite and eat at the food court at Yosemite Valley Lodge. Plus, they have a Peet's Coffee in the food court!

We never had a bad meal. It was convenient place to eat right across the road from our lodge. It was more than what we expected for back in the woods Yosemite Park.

Had breakfast in the restaurant attached to the Yosemite View Lodge. It was buffet style with a charge to cover the food, but the coffee was not included (first time I have encountered this). Service was decent and would rate this as reasonable value.

Good choices and nice coffee bar. Pie was pretty good, but food was just regular stuff, nothing great.

Thank Italophilia
