    Bad experience! I do not recommend!! Unfriendly hostess (except the blonde girl), lazy service, it took almost an hour to have my wine on the table. I didn't order the second bottle to avoid being upset (we were two couples). Food at the buffet quickly became unavailable… All in all, my worst dining experience in America in 40 years. I recommend avoiding this place!!

    Wonderful! Lovely pianist playing during our dinner. Buffet had prime rib and sauteed jumbo shrimp, caesar salad and flavorful rice dish. Dessert and coffee served at the end by a sweet server.

    Beautiful dining hall with live piano music. However, the food was only above average, the service was subpar, and the worst part was the “dress code.” The website makes it very clear that there’s a dress code, so we packed accordingly. But they didn’t enforce the dress code, and many diners wore shorts, baseball hats and even sweat pants. It completely lowered the experience. When I asked the waiter about this, he laughed. I hope they can get the food, staff and clientele to match the hall’s quality. At the very least, enforce a dress code. What’s so hard about that?

    If you have a chance to eat brunch at the Ahwahnee it is worth doing. Excellent service and food. Beyond that, the historic dining room and hotel lobby are spectacular too.

    They brought us a dessert with a candle in it for our anniversary. The food was good, but it was a self serve Buffett. We had a beautiful table by the window looking out to a waterfall! We dressed up, but others around us were in sweatshirts.

    I checked in to the hotel 5 minutes before my reservation and this was the last seating of the night. The staff was very kind and made sure I got in to get some diner. Everyone was lovely. The piano was playing beautiful music wich enhanced the vibe of the great dining room. What a wonderful place to be!

    A good option for dinner if staying in the Yosemite park, as few other options are available. Only a buffet option which was not expected, food was fine. The hotel as a whole is dated, not overly clean or inviting - there is plenty of renovation work going on externally. Hotel bartender (not restaurant) was very unaccommodating, I’d say rude.

    What a complete & utter disappointment! A friend & I dined at the restaurant this evening. I wasn’t aware that it was buffet only - no a la carte service. The offerings were prime rib (which was cooked well past medium); chicken breast smothered in a creamy pesto-like sauce; supposedly salmon (but the chafing dish was empty when I (twice) attempted to get a piece; and a dry pork loin. Sides included broccolini that looked like it had been cooked 3 days ago, zucchini, mashed potatoes (which also looked “old”); polenta w/some mushrooms (?) on top; and quinoa. I tried the chicken & pork, as well as the polenta. There were also some sorry attempts at salads which I also sampled just to fill my plate. Everything was COLD or lukewarm at best and also very salty. Suffice it to say I did not go back for seconds. Well, I did try to get some salmon on a 2nd pass thru the buffet table but the chafer was still empty. Since I was still hungry, and the dessert area had just been replenished, I decided to give the crème brûlée a try…BIG mistake. It was a cold, clumpy, congealed mess. I had one bite and pushed away the plate. Best part of the meal…a glass of Pinot & the water! Our bill came to $178 (before tip) which was a TOTAL rip-off. I could’ve eaten better at Denny’s. The hotel management should be ashamed of the “product” they’re putting out of this restaurant. This is not the standard of what I understood to be expected from the Ahwahnee. I probably will never return.

    Wonderful breakfast. Excellent service. Was a great experience all around and a treat after spending most of our visit in Curry Village.
