“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

A really delicious meal. The steak & lobster dish was amazing. For such a nice place I would have expected a clean table cloth for each new client. They just wiped it. Even a paper cloth change on top would be better. Apart from that - great.

“Great Lunch After Ziplining!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

After a morning of ziplining at Yosemite Ziplines and Adventures, Charles Street restaurant as recommended to us. We were greeted warmly and shown to our table. Lots of cold water was brought to us which was like heaven after ziplining in 100+ heat. When the waitress came to take our orders we had a few questions regarding the sandwiches and salads we were about to order. That was when we were told that they were out of any kind of salad makings, including spinach for the chicken sandwich. We made some changes from our original plan and placed our orders. After 30 minutes of no food, we were told that it should be plated soon and they were running behind because of the lunch rush. When we arrived we were one of three tables and now there was another four tables occupied. I was really starting to wonder if we had made a wise decision. A few minutes later we were told that they now had salad fixins in case we wanted to change anything. We didn't and our orders were brought out 40 minutes after arriving. The Chicken Feta sandwich was wonderful. The chicken was moist and flavorful and the feta was mild and not overpowering. My daughter had the fish and chips and my hubby the french dip. Both of which I'm told were very good. With full and very satisfied tummies we were on to Yosemite.

“Excellent Dinner Pleasant Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

This was an over all excellent experience. I had a steak dinner that was cooked as requested and a quality piece of steak that was tender and great flavor and portions are decent. Service was pleasant and efficient. I really enjoyed my visit to Charles.Street and will return., This is one of the better restaurant I have found in Mariposa had been disappointed by other restaurants in town, It was nice to have such a wonderful meal.

“Charming!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Mariposa has retained some "old west" charm, and Charles Street Dinner House is its exclamation point! Excellent food and friendly, efficient service. All salad dressings are house-made and are fresh and delicious. Fresh -baked bread was great. Two of our party of 4 had steaks and two had ribs. Everything was excellent, and portions were plentiful, so we had no room for dessert.

“Decent place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

We ate in this restaurant on our second night in Mariposa. The food was good, the staff was kind, so we decided to go back also the following evening. This time our waitress was so concerned with us being italians that she felt the need to circle the tip suggestions with a pen when she brought the bill, plus just in case we didn't get it when she swiped the card and brought it back she folded the bill around the card with the circled suggestions just on top. We have been travelling all our lives plus we live in London and San Francisco is a second home to us. That was just unpleasant and not needed. Anyway, the food is good but the owners should watch their staff closer.
