Emma's has been our anniversary spot for 3 years now. We love the food and the service is unbeatable! We always feel like family when we have dinner here. It's even my entire family's go to spot for our Christmas Eve parties, birthdays, or just when you crave that perfect steak. Highly recommended place to eat!

We live less than a mile from Emma's and didn't even know it existed. Our neighbors dined one night and told us to give it a try and we are glad we did. It's a BYOB - service was attentive and dinner was good - if you plan to dine on Fri or Sat make reservations - it gets crowded... More

From the minute we walked in the door to the minute we left, our service and experience was really, really good. The food was wonderful and the suggestions made by the staff were on point. This is a hidden gem, and would certainly recommend to anyone.

Tried the place because of the good reviews. I ordered branzino...never had it before so nothing to compare it to. It was one of the specials but that could mean a number of things other than it was a customer favorite. I didn't care for it, soggy skin, some bones...I've had better seafood. My dining partner had the lobster ravioli.... More

I'd say that I eat here every other month or so. Mostly, we're former co-workers getting together to catch up with each other. I've never been disappointed with my meal. I've had veal, chicken, pasta and fish. My favorite side veggies are the roasted potatoes and spinach. At my last visit, the veggies were not hot. That's the first time... More

Having passed the restaurant many times, we were told by friends that they had dined here and what a wonderful experience they had. So, we purchased a coupon to give it a try. OMG.....you might not expect much from the exterior but don't let that fool you.......you are transformed to a much different place once inside. The inside is quiet... More
