We had great food and drinks. With only three of us, we didn't need a reservation and waited only 20 minutes. Our wait was easy with a beer in the bar.

This restaurant was not open for breakfast or lunch, except for Sunday Brunch, which was extremely expensive. Twice we tried to go there for dinner but found it was closed for a private event. We gave up and opted to just eat elsewhere.

Hi, I would contact the Majestic Hotel in Yosemite if you are staying there. You have a better chance of seeing it if you are in San Francisco.

At The Mountain Room Restaurant, you will take in astounding views of the nearly 2500 foot high waterfall. The menu offers perfectly cooked steaks, sustainably caught seafood, and mouthwatering pasta dishes. The restaurant is open year-round.
