    You can never go wrong with The Restaurant at Convict Lake. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. The bar and wine list never disappoints. It’s been a favorite of ours for years and last nights meal was terrific.

    Everything here is exquisite. We make it a point to have dinner at Convict Lake resort everytime we are in town. The soups are delicious,the entrees are 5 stars. Their Beef Wellington is amazing and if you save room for dessert you MUST get the tableside bananas foster. You will not regret it.

    After hearing about this restaurant for years, and passing by Convict Lake turnoff on 395 between Mammoth and LA, I finally had an opportunity to go here, and was not disappointed. In the setting of semi-remote rustic beauty, and in an area generally devoid of fine dining, this is an oasis. The service, ambience, and food are all first rate and worth a detour off Route 395. The quality would stand up in any urban venue.

    We've been dining here for years and believe this is, hands down, the finest restaurant in the Eastern Sierra. The menus feature an impressive blend of classic dishes and creative original preparations; we love that they always have some local game options available, prepared beautifully. The cocktail menu is always great, the wine list offers a little bit of everything at a reasonable price point. Save room for the bananas Foster - it's the real deal! Kudos to Kurt and his team for consistently delivering such an outstanding culinary experience!

    An "out-of-the-way" place, but well worth the effort! Very quaint, rustic, clean, and all around more than I would've expected. Set in a valley below the Sierra Nevada peaks, about 5 miles off of the main highway, is a lodge with a fine restaurant on-site. The service was casual, but very nice, cordial, and professional. The food was impeccable, deserving of the 5 stars I gave it. They have a full-service bar, a large wine menu, with a fire place at the center of the dining room. If you're looking for something special in this area, try this! You won't regret it!

    The Restaurant at Convict Lake is always a very good experience. We eat at the restaurant when we are visiting family in the area. The staff, food and ambiance are high quality all the way around. The other patrons seem to all be enjoying their meals the same as we did. It is fine dining with a casual, welcoming flair! Highly recommend!

    Great experience from start to finish. Emily was our server and couldn't have been more helpful. We asked to share an endive salad to start. Out came Emily with two perfectly plated half salads. No extra charge. Beef Wellington and Scottish salmon entrees followed and were outstanding. Beef perfectly cooked as ordered. Bananas foster completed the experience. We brought wine but their wine selection was first rate. Can't say enough good about this place!

    Absolutely loved Everything about this dining experience. Good, service, interesting menu, prepared to perfection. We ordered the beef Wellington, medium rare, and Scallops which were huge, all prepared to perfection, and presented beautifully. Next visit, we will rent a cabin and eat here 3x daily. Really a fantastic restaurant and perfect dining experience in a relaxed scenic atmosphere.

    It was a perfect experience except for one very loud table having a heated debate about politics that the entire restaurant could hear clearly. Not the best ambiance for a Romantic 42nd Anniversary dinner, but the food and service was the BEST as always.

    The waitress (whose name I forgot, but said she had been there about 6 mos,) was outstanding, and a vast improvement over some of the previous wait staff. She provided excellent service, and provided the perfect balance between interacting with our group without being intrusive. She graciously agreed to take the photo.

    Our first time dining at this place recommended by friends. The mushroom trio appetizer was the hit of the evening. I had a so-so quality ribeye with accompanying sauce that struck me as off (too fruity for my taste) and thus distracted from the steak’s flavor. I salvaged this entree by scrapping the sauce and substituting the leftover mushroom appetizer, and it’s fabulous jus, over the steak = big improvement! My husband had the chicken entree which he thought was good. Alas, we were too full for dessert!

    We've dined at the Restaurant at Convict Lake a few times. It's pretty consistent. The dining room is rustic with comfortable booths and subdued lighting. The menu could be updated a bit. There's a lot of emphasis on meat. They make their own pasta which is a nice surprise although there is usually only one pasta on the menu. The portions are generous and the warm sourdough bread is excellent. Wines are good, both bottles and by the glass. They were already out of the specials when we arrived for a 7:15pm reservation. We had great service.
