“Overpriced and still worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Splurged and took our kids here during our stay at Tenaya. They are old enough to enjoy the fancy fancy food and service, and well behaved enough to appreciate the treat. Lobster bisque is a must order. Just flat out wonderful. The Caesar salad made table side was it's own event thanks to our amazing waiter. And it was delicious. Let the waiter pick your wine, he did mine and it was amazing. Steaks were FABULOUS. Husband had quail which he said was also fantastic: tender, juicy, with crisp skin. This dinner was one of the things our kids still remember about our trip six months later. Well worth the $$$.

“Nice for a relaxing upscale dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Was a nice relaxing break to a busy day. Food was very good particularly the soup which came in a pastry puff. Some in our party ordered full soup to nuts while others had the soup and salad. All were pleased.

“Best Lobster Bisque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

I have had several good soups around the world, none better than this one, ever. The room ambiance was outstanding along with the wine selections and the overall dinner was terrific (a little pricey but worth it).
