The food and service were both excellent! Some of the tables have a view of Yosemite Falls, which was an added benefit. Yes it's expensive, but that's not a surprise based on the location.

Had to wait so went to the lounge across the courtyard. Wait was 10- 20 longer than they told us, but park was unusually crowded, so went back to Mountain Room to check & our table was ready. Meal was good & service was goo.d

Fantastic food, beautifully prepared with Vegetarian options. Spectacular view of the lower Yosemite Falls. We always dine here when we stay in the valley.

The food is pretty good - they use locally sourced ingredients, such as produce and fish - when possible. It's easily the best food available at the Lodge - though that's not saying much. They do not take reservations unless it's a party of 8 or more, so people line up in advance outside the door waiting for the restaurant... More

We showed up at the Mountain Room right as they were opening and got seated by the window with a view of the mountains. Lovely. We ordered a steak and the hamburger and both were cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. We also shared the mud pie which was decadent and plenty to share. Service was top notch and friendly.

We had a window seat (get there at 5). Food was perfection. I had the salmon, hubby had Steak. The petite Creme Brûlée was perfect end. Casual dress is fine but be prepared to get your wallet out. A bit pricey.

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
