Embers Restaurant at the Teyana Lodge in Fish Camp was delightful. We had the lamb chops, which were delicious. We especially loved the lobster bisque soup and the heirloom tomato salad, yummy! The service was outstanding and so very helpful, friendly and professional. Loved dinning at the Embers!

Excellent meal with one exception, the flourless chocolate cake was dry. We asked for an extra scoop of homemede vanilla ice cream and were not charged for it, which was very nice.

This restaurant far exceeds the hotel its located at (Tenaya Lodge). It only has a few tables, usually the mark of a really special restaurant. One of the best steaks I've had, this chef certainly knows how to cook a piece of meat. The service was impeccable and the only fault I can bring up was the weird cutlery. The... More

Which waiter you get will determine how your meal turns out. We had Jason, who was great, and most importantly, knew exactly how to make a Caesar Salad tableside. The waiter at the next station, was loud, over-assertive (telling diners what he thought they should order), knew nothing about food preparation, and ruined the dinners of those he served. Our...

First of all, a restaurant should not put an age restriction. Parents who elects to pay $40 per plate will notice a kids menu is not available. Service was poor and food was average for a high end restaurant. We had a terrible experience because the water server and waiter was downright lazy. We felt that it was a chore... More

This restaurant was a surprise with the quality of food. Really wasn't expecting anything so good, eat there two of our three nights, and would have done the third but meet some friends, who were also staying in area.
