This majestic room, sporting 350-foot ceilings, granite pillars, and space for 350, is without a doubt the finest restaurant in Yosemite. The regularly changing dinner menu is a study in continental cuisine, with steaks, duck, and seafood, as well as creative dishes like Moroccan braised lamb with kale and lemon yogurt. Breakfast is hearty American fare and lunch salads and sandwiches, but fast for a spell before coming for the “Grand Brunch” on Sunday—it has everything from oysters and catfish to blintzes and omelets. The dinner dress code requires men to wear a collared shirt and long pants and women to wear a dress, skirt, or pants with a blouse; breakfast and lunch are casual. Reservations are required for dinner.
