I have read the reviews and felt I needed to add my own. We ate here in May for probably the 7th or 8th time. There are not a lot of great choices locally where you can get the kind of food that you can get here. We have never had a bad meal. Ordered the sampler appetizer and each... More

We've tried this place 3-4 times. We keep thinking "it can't get any worse". Yet, the last time we were there, it somehow got worse. The attitude of the staff is over the top bad. Negative, arrogant, like they're doing you a favor by serving you. After encountering the owner, it all became crystal clear as he's the most arrogant... More

can't wait till they go out of business and someone new opens there--we have not been back for over year due to bad attitude, entitlement, expensive, arrogance of the owner "C" need I say more. They also don't recycle and were nasty about that when asked. Spend your money elsewhere where it means something to your enjoyment

Sophisticated but relaxed city feel on the South Shore. The food is ver good especially the starters and a good drink selection. It hard to find this type of place in the suburbs.

We were invited to join another couple at Ember. We only live 15 minutes away but it would be our first time dining there. Although a bit hesitant based on other mixed reviews, we graciously accepted. Let me tell you... GLAD WE DID !!!!! They accept reservations for any size party so our table for four was ready when we... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a delicious New Year's Eve dinner at Embers. Restaurant ambiance is soothing, in contemporary shades of grey. Server was courteous,attentive to our wants, efficient, and highly knowledgeable of the eclectic menu. Selections ranged from several fish dishes, poultry, and many wood grilled meat selections.Entrees were priced from the high $20's to mid $30's. Food was piping hot, beautifully... More

First time to Ember. Awesome atmosphere food was very good but service was incredible slow especially the bar. Difficult to get waited on or served. Too big a place for just two bartenders.

I have been to Ember on numerous occasions. The food is always fantastic and the atmosphere is perfect for a quiet evening with just my wife or with friends. You want to order the chef’s appetizer, which is a sampling of current items the chef is making. We get this almost every time and have never been disappointed. They have... More

The food, flavor, quality and presentation were all excellent. The service, however, was inattentive, stretching dinner out for two and one half hours. The ambiance is warm, dark and contemporary. The cost, unfortunately, is almost prohibitive. The entrees run from $27 to $38. Appetizers average $15, all deserts were $9. The least expensive wine on the wine list was an... More

I recently reviewed another beloved local restaurant and was reminded of how disappointing our visit was to Embers. Another "special" occasion brought us to Embers. I ordered the duck which is a favorite of mine. I was raised eating duck and cook it at home but always enjoy ordering it in restaurants to experience the flavors of the particular chef.... More
