Went for dinner after hiking in Yosemite. The place appears cozy and everyone is friendly. Nice menu and drink selection but service wasn't good. Not much attention from the waitstaff. Other than taking our order and dropping off the food we hardly saw anyone. No one came around to offer us drink refills or see if we needed anything. It... More

Stopped for lunch on our way to Bass Lake. You get the menus at the front counter, and you return there to order. Slightly weird. Service was friendly and efficient. The food presentation could be better, but the food tasted good. I had a chicken Cesar salad. I don't quite recall what my friend had, it was 2 weeks ago... More

We stayed in their new vacation rental above the restaurant, called The Loft @ 1850 and had their excellent meals every day. We were able to call to order meals and they delivered them to us upstairs above the restaurant. Always excellent food and service. Their fried chicken is like nothing your Mama made. Now a place to stay overnight... More

Thought I'd try this place on business trip. Comfy little place, decent wine. Had an seared tuna salad, it was not good, couldn't really taste the tuna and it was simply on lettuce. Poor presentation and below quality food. Food bad, seemed like a nice casual place.

Hi James, I apologize that you didn't enjoy your meal while dining at 1850. I wish that while you were here you would've said something to us. We would have loved to provide you with a new meal that you enjoyed! The seared ahi Tuna does come on a bed of mixed greens, and is topped with crunchy fried wonton... More

The staff was friendly and knew the menu thoroughly. The dinner came with a salad and I chose the balsamic dressing which was the best I have ever tasted. My tri tip was great (barbecued) and my friend's new york strip was good. I will come back when I am in Mariposa again

In the land of hamburguers, placing one on top is a daunting task. But 1850 made it easy; they were clearly the opposite of fast food; cooked with care and very tasty. Will come back!

Ate dinner at 1850 around 5:30 p.m. Restaurant atmosphere was very pleasant, conducive to conversation, & afforded relative privacy to all diners (the sliding doors to separate tables are very cool.) There were many open tables (early on a Tuesday) & our waiter was present w/o hovering. Asked for recommendations for dinner - we all chose to go with what... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience while dining at our restaurant. I am so troubled that you experienced the fried chicken as you would've expected kids chicken strips. We take great pride in that dish, and it is very meticulously prepared. Our 10 ounce airline breast (bone in breast and Wong portion) is brined for several... More

This is a pretty small place, I counted 14 tables and booths; great during the off-season, but I might avoid it during the summer because of the limited seating. They have a small, quaint bar. Many menu items sounded great, but we settled on burgers. The steakhouse burger is great! Bacon, onion rings, and cheese sauce, and you'll need the... More

From May to September we have a seasonal patio that opens, and we are able to double our seating capacity. It is still best to make a resveration though... More

Stopped for a late afternoon lunch. Seated in a booth by the hostess, we then went to the bar at the entrance and ordered and paid for our meals. Even though it wasn't busy, we waited awhile for our food but it was worth it. My tri-tip sandwich was delicious and my son's 1850 burger with a heaping side of... More
