My husband and I went to this restaurant after we went on the Valley Tour. The French onion soup was delicious. The trout was good. My husband really enjoyed the cheesecake. It is a nice room. Our waitress was great. This was the best dinner...More

Lovely dinning room, that brings in the park to the side of your table! In our case though, food preparation and service ruined the meal. First, as an appetizer, we selected lobster beignets: like the two entrees we ordered, it was over-cooked, and very hard...More

I ate here twice last week during a week-long trip to the national park, and my experience both times was outstanding. The restaurant has an understated rustic feel to it and isn't opulent like the Majestic Hotel, but the food here is better. The server...More

After hiking, salad and steak make a perfect dinner, especially when both are well-prepared. My wife started with a small house salad, and I had the Ceasar. Both were delicious. We next shared the large rib-eye with garlic mashed potatoes and carrots. The steak came...More

After we refused to sit in a dark corner right at opening with almost the entire room available, we had a great servicer, don't recall her name but an older lady who was very attentive to ours and other tables needs. Burgers good, not great.

After an active day in Yosemite Valley, there is nothing like a relaxing meal at the Mountain Room Restaurant. I ate there two nights, and each night I was fortunate to be seated at a table with a view of Yosemite Falls. The menu has...More

We had three dinners in Yosemite Valley -- two at the Majestic, where we were staying, and one here. Both the food and service were much better at the Mountain Room. The Caesar salad was perhaps the best we've ever had -- and one of...More

We ate dinner here at Yosemite Valley Lodge, and really enjoyed the service and ambience. They don't take reservations unless you are a larger group, but we checked early on when it was the least crowded, and went at that time (6 p.m.). The food...More
