We were staying at a nearby bed and breakfast and the Embers was recommended. While the Tenaya lodge is quite beautiful, there is something awkward about the way the restaurants are set up. We arrived for our reservation, and close to four hostesses were gathered in a central check in area for the three restaurants. They were having a lot... More

We loved this place - just outside the south entrance to Yosemite. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff, serving excellent food, with a wide variety of choices. Excellent wine selection. If you are in Yosemite and looking for a great place to eat, I would highly recommend this place.

Our dining experience here was very okay. The food was very good but the ambiance and service seemed a bit lacking, kind of like they "were phoning it in". I would spend my food dollars elsewhere in the future. The quail appetizer was very good, tho'.

Excellent staff at Embers and food was great. Special requests were handled for us and the tableside cooking presentations were wonderful.

We had been staying at the nearby Narrow Gauge Inn (Fish Camp) during our visit to the spectacular Yosemite National Park and decided to dine at Trip Advisor's top-rated restaurant in the area: Embers at Tenaya Lodge. While the food was reasonably well prepared and the service was professional and helpful, we did appear to be one of only three... More

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...
