Majestic Yosemite Dining Room

Californian in Yosemite National Park

The formal ambience (mind your manners!) may not be for everybody, but few would not be awed by the sumptuous decor, soaring beamed ceiling and palatial chandeliers here. The menu is constantly in flux, but most dishes have perfect pitch and are beautifully presented. There’s a dress code at dinner, but otherwise shorts and sneakers are OK.

Sunday brunch (adult/child $55/22; 7am to 2pm) is amazing. Reservations highly recommended for brunch and dinner.
