Even though it was the end if the season we did another yearly trip to Empire. We had a few non skiers with us so it was nice for them to se the view, runs and lodge. Food is consistently fresh and the menu changes nightly. Pork cheeks were excellent , and the lamb leg cooked in the hearth was accompanied with a nice jelly homemade . Always a nice evening . One free corkage per reservation and I do have wine and alcohol.

Have never had a dining experience quite like this. "Stations", but not in the blah buffet kind of way. Amazing cheese. Fantastic stews. Fondue awesome. Definitely pricey.

Our party of 10 loved this experience - kids and adults alike. Yes, it is expensive, but everything in Deer Valley is ridiculously priced! The dessert table is shameless and we ate more than our weight in chocolate fondue. We especially loved the melting cheese - my young son had 3 plates of this. The salads were fresh and the entrees were unique. Just warn your young children about the lamb room -- not sure my daughter was prepared to see the legs hanging and cooking over the fire! We would go back in a minute! The service was great, and the wine menu had some great finds!

We have been going to Fireside Dining for years. We have taken friends and family. We have gone in large groups. It is a wonderful Swiss-like experience with raclette over a roaring fire. The stews, lamb and fish entrees are fabulous. Adults and children alike love the atmosphere. You can take the kids on a sleigh ride. My husband did this together before we got married and it was super romantic. Of course, the kids love the the wonderful dessert bar with chocolate and caramel sauce heated over the fire and cookies, fruit and cakes for dipping. Did I mention the home made whipped cream? Wonderful wine selections and you can also bring your own. We will keep coming back. No Deer Valley ski vacation should be without this experience.

We have experienced Fireside Dining at Empire Lodge for years now and despite the regularly climbing prices, we have continued to return. Yes, the food is quite good, but it doesn't vary much year after year. Much is the same-from the rosti potatoes to the stews to the carving station (lamb-roast-ham). After several years it does become "been there, done that."
But tonight I was mostly disappointed in the pricing-our 12 year old was suddenly an "adult" and at $58 (she is not a big eater), it struck us as a rip off. Moreover, we had a later reservation and were hoping to be able to dine earlier. After 3 separate calls to the Deer Valley dining line-and requests to speak directly to Empire Lodge which were not honored-we were told the restaurant was "full" and not to expect to dine any earlier. We showed up 10 minutes early to discover that there were indeed 6 empty tables in the main dining area. There was a definite disconnect between their reservation line and what was actually happening at the restaurant. Disappointing for Deer Valley.
