This gothic-rustic architecture is so beautiful it should be somewhere in the Carpathians in Transylvania. I felt like a princess eating here and said that if I ever get married it will be here-but that was before I went to Turkey. Still, we went back...More

In the last 15-20 years the food here has ranged, in my opinion, from mediocre to awful. Breakfast has been the safest bet and probably still is. The problem seems to be a compound of (a) taking advantage of the majesterial setting to maximize profits...More

We were seated quickly and served quickly as well. The food was excellent and the dessert menu was awesome. Great place to eat to beat the heat. There was no view during the summer but the room itself as very impressive even without the view.

We enjoyed this beautiful dining room, I ordered the Prime Rib and it was fabulous. My husband and son were jealous, we had to dine again so they could get their own orders.

What a gorgeous hotel! We didn't get to stay there, but we ate our first meal after coming out from a backpack trip in the park. The hotel is incredibly beautiful, the staff was great, and the food was awesome.

The room and general setting cannot be matched. This historic hotel inside Yosemite valley should be a stop along the way for anyone wishing a break from the snack-bar/cafeteria dining options inside the park. Unfortunately, the food doesn't enhance the experience. Steak was poorly cooked...More

We didn't. Played it by ear. But it was very popular even then and we had too wait 29 minutes. I strongly recommend booking
