Description: EMBER WOOD FIRE GRILL is a casual dining restaurant, occupying the old historic train station in the quaint village of Livonia in Livingston County, committed to a hospitality first attitude. In an era dominated by chain restaurants and fast, pre-packaged food, our mission is to bring our patrons REAL food at reasonable prices. Comfort from scratch cuisine using the best ingredients from sustainable sources, whenever possible: selections with no growth hormones, pesticides, pre-packaged, frozen or use of steam tables will be used in our kitchen. Our food is high quality and labor intensive, the same as some of the top restaurants, in the country, without the big city over head, so we can keep our prices reasonable. Our hope is that you, our customer, will enjoy the combination of stunning modern architecture and old charm: simple, good food "meant to share" from farm to plate. Our menus will changes with the seasons, our wood fire selections are cooked with real wood, our wine and micro brew selections are large and extensive. Our well trained staff will make your selection approachable and fun. S.O.S.: Shorts or Suit, come down and enjoy!!!

This is by far my favorite restaurant! The food is always delicious. The staff is excellent. Was a little dissapointed on our last visit that the sliders were no longer on the menu. Loved the size and the fact that we got to build our burger. And the sauces! Loved the sauces!! Bring back the sliders!!! My toddler loved the... More

My another couple, my wife and I had one of those nights when we didn't know what we wanted. The solution was The Ember where we ordered a very eclectic variety of small plates that included a calamari salad, polenta, and grilled shrimp. Not one item per person, but several plates that we passed between us. It was a tasty... More

A great spot for a dinner for two, or a group gathering (ask to reserve the small windowed alcove room). The tapas style dining is perfect, with intriguing and delicious menu items. Our favorites are the Calamari Salad (large enough to share with 4-6 people ) and the Seasonal slider offering (complimented with perfectly crispy fries). The servers are helpful... More

This restaurant is by far the best place to eat ever. Served papas style (sharing) They use locally grown foods as much as possible. You order one course at a time and share it . Many items are very different from what you can find in other restaurants. Calamari salad is a favorite. Menu changes so always new things to... More

Have eaten here several times and tried most of the items on the menu all are very good some are outstanding. I was reluctant to write a review because it is already difficult to get a reservation but we will just plan ahead. The food is served for sharing and things don't come out of the kitchen in the order... More

Have dined at Ember's on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed, the menu is always changing so on return trips always a new dish to try. Wedge salad and calamari salads are stand bys and large portions. Airplane chicken is one of my favorites but was not on menu this trip. Good wine selection with many NYS wines on... More
