“Fine Dining at Teneya”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

The atmosphere did not live up to the website. I had the lamb chops. It was the best food that I had at the five restaurants offered, but it was just slightly above average.

“Fantastic Anniversary Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

We had a wonderful dinner here to celebrate our Anniversary. I recommend highly for special occasions. While this restaurant had children present, it has more of an adult feel.

We were made to feel very welcome. Gordon was a fine server and the Manager congratulated us on our Anniversary. If you like sweet drinks the Peach Martini on the main menu was amazing. One of my favorite drinks, ever. The salmon I had was delicious with an unusual but very tasty tangerine butter.

Very nice dining experience.

“Embers restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Overall, very good. Ate there on two different nights and the both food and service were very good. The caesar salad was made at the table the old fashion way and was excellent. Entree choices are very good and the wine selection is excellent even though on the pricey side.

“Terrific salmon dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

I was here for a business meeting and our table had 18 guests. The salad was crisp and the blue cheese was excellent. The salmon was undercooked by some standards, but was very tasty. The service was first class and the wine list excellent. Worth visiting and worth returning to in the future.
