Walked right up and were seated promptly. Staff was very engaging and friendly. Nice wine and beer options. Fairly wide menu variety - given the location. Beautiful views during an early dinner.

We tried eating the night before but due to over an hour wait for 2, we cancelled and asked about getting seated for the next night. We were told if we arrived at 5pm we would get seated right away and even get a view of the falls. We arrived at 5pm and we're seared right away and got the... More

Loved the ambience- soaring wooden ceilings with views memorable views! Get a table near their windows. Servers are a bit slow but very helpful. Servings are a good size. Food was really good so ended up having dinner two consecutive nights.... First night- Shared the trout dish and the portobello mushroom dish. Both were so tasty👌🏼👌🏼 Second night- Shared the...

The hostess and wait staff were super friendly. The prices were not outrageous and the food was very good. Best of all was the spectacular view of Yosemite Falls. Try to get a table close to the window facing the falls.

This restaurant is near the bottom of Yosemite Falls. It has a lot of character and good food. The French Onion soup was great and I also had a steak, which was served with a baked potato and locally grown vegetables. I also had enough room for one of the petite desserts. It all hit the spot. I highly recommend... More

We had a variety of dishes. Soups and Salads and main entrees. The soups were excellent. Onion soup was great. Salads were fresh. Pork chop was excellent.

My girlfriend and I both had the flat iron steak and we both ordered it medium. Mine returned perfect and hers was well done. Not sure how the same order coming back to the same table gets messed up. They corrected it but my meal was cold by the time hers came back. Vegetables were somewhat oily and slightly over... More

We were really looking forward to eating here, because we have had great experiences in the past, but two nights in a row we were sorely disappointed now that Aramark has taken over as the park's food vendor. Steak was way overdone, polenta was gluey and gross - they even managed to mess up a basic hamburger by adding ten... More

This is a review of the Sunday brunch we had there last week. It was one of the worst restaurant meals we've had in years. In general, all of the food in the buffet was tasteless, overcooked, dried out... And cold! For example, my Eggs Benedict: undercooked eggs on top of a not-toasted soggy English muffin and cold; the bacon,... More

We were celebrating our anniversary, so decided to splurge at the Mountain Room Restaurant. I had the salmon for an entree and it was wonderful. For dessert the flourless chocolate torte - also great. Our service was very professional.
