Yummy dinner under a tree

The outdoor seating for Emerson Grill is under a large pine tree canopy on the back Corner of the Emerson building. The weather was perfect. The food was Yummy. My daughter is a vegan and they did their best to create a yummy flatbread pizza option for her.' We would definitely go back.

Food is always good. Menu always fresh and specials are always intriguing. Little cramped on space, but feels like an Italian cafe.

Our first night was highlighted by delectable dinner set under huge evergreen tree one block from downtown. Caroline was a charming and gracious hostess, Jim our server directed us to a delicious reasonably priced Rioja that enhanced our fantastic meal. Grilled calamari, gently seasoned, mouthwatering grilled tuna and coq au vin main courses melted in our mouths were the culinary... More

This is a small restaurant inside the Emerson Cultural Center. Good idea to have reservations. We walked in early in the evening and were lucky to get a table. I had the Carbonara with Fettuccine. It was OK, I took it home and added more butter and it was better. My husband had the spaghetti and Meatballs and was very... More

Somehow when you pay top dollar for a "dining experience" you expect top service. The waitstaff was surprisingly less attentive than they should have been at 6:00 p.m. Only three tables were occupied and the waitstaff tended to hang out closer to the bar and the door. We had two salads - the one with the goat cheese bruschetta and... More

I try to leave NorCal food expectations at home, but readers should know I travel with high hopes for a good meal. Emerson's menu offers nicely varied options leaning towards Northern Italian focus, often using local organic produce & meats. Surprisingly good wine selection, impeccable service in a warm pleasant setting. Food was a bit generic - one could find... More

Service and food are great. Nice cozy winter place for dinner. The only distractor is the menu need to be changed. It has been the same since I can remember, many years. I have had about ever thing on it, so please have about a major change or addition.

We had a salad special with turnip, arugula, beet, and medallions of fried goat cheese with a citrus fennel viniagrette that was excellent. I greatly enjoyed the scallop appetizer but the calamari appetizer was too oily (it was cooked but not fried or breaded). Good service and a good wine list.

We lucked into a last-minute reservation here on a busy night. Our server was excellent, very friendly in spite of the hectic atmosphere. Highly recommend the pizzas - they are large enough to share between 2-4 people! We also found a good wine to enjoy (no liquor, just beer/wine). This restaurant is in a neat old building with an art... More

well cooked meat, interesting salads and appetizers, fresh food, great flavors, and a very good offering of wine. The outdoor seating is charming and the service was excellent, the prices were high but they were on par with the quality of the restaurant.
