Embers, Tenaya Lodge's fine-dining restaurant is the venue for upscale Yosemite dining featuring cuisine prepared to perfection by Tenaya's award-winning culinary team led by Executive Chef Frederick Clabaugh, CCC. With an ambiance that is sophisticated and romantic, Embers offers an intimate dining experience with a crackling, double-sided fireplace as the centerpiece, elegant high-back crimson chairs and very personal service by the well trained staff. The menu offers dishes that match the Sierra Nevada experience, prepared using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. Elegant fish, beef and game preparations are some of the featured menu specialties in Embers.

The food here is ok, but the service excellent. It is always very busy which is annoying when you just want a drink, but I don't know what the solution is for this. The servers handle the craziness with grace and humor.

We had breakfast here twice. They have a very large breakfast buffet. You name it and they have it. Service was a little slow but the place was packed. I would eat here again mainly for the convenience.

Food and service were excellent. I know other reviews have complained about the prices but we found them equal to any great restaurant in a quality hotel or resort
