For the money payed you might expect more quality food, but sadly, no. The views are amazing, but you can see them outside the restaurant as well. I would not go back

Arrived at the restaurant ten minutes before opening and was not seated until 15 minutes after. Service was spotty. Food was okay, but portions were small for the price.

We've stayed at the Yosemite Lodge for years and recently had Sunday brunch in the Mountain Room Restaurant. What a treat! The food was amazing and there was something for everyone. It really seemed like a bargain for all the delicious food.

We took duck and trout. Both were good. A bit pricey. Service is responsive, although as we came at opening we did have to wait a bit for the food.

While I love the dining room at the Ahwahnee (Majestic) Hotel for it's beauty, I don't really care to eat there. Too big, open, cold, noisy. And expensive, plus snooty. I always choose the Mountain Room instead, if I want a quality sit down meal in Yosemite Valley. Fresh fish choices, several steak options, chicken and pasta dishes, vegetarian and... More

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
