We stopped in having driven by this place more times than I can count. Let's just say it's not our favorite place to eat in the area. We sit at the bar every time we visit - The owner, Charlie, is very friendly and he makes the best cocktails bar none. If you don't feel like a full meal (and... More

The staff is great. The owner is always onsite, usually tending bar. The bar area is Cosy and the tables are designed for an intiment dinner.

Once again visited this restaurant and were not disappointed. My wife and I did not feel like driving into Boston and knew we could get the same feel at Ember. Service is first class and the food is top notch. Nice wine selection. Great place to go for a nice night with friends.

Have been here on several different occasions with other couples. We always make reservations in advance because the wait is quite long without them. The ambiance of this restaurant is top notch. It is modern and sexy with fireplaces and candles throughout the restaurant. The wait staff are all at the top of their game and they are attentive without... More

I had the bacon wrapped monkfish as my entree and it was absolutely delicious. My friends had the salmon and loved it, as well. Can't recall what sides the dishes came with but I do remember that mine had a grilled asparagus that was done perfectly. None of us had appetizers or dessert except coffee or tea and my dinner...

And their staff and Chefs do a great job with everything ! Their wood grilled salmon is outstanding . This is a great place for a couple of apps and a wood... More

We have a tradition of choosing new restaurants to have an early New years eve dinner. This year, we chose Ember. My wife and I shared an artisan green salad which was quite large even for two. I had the Monkfish. This is a very meaty, almost lobster textured white fish. It was served on a bed of roasted barley.... More

This is an absolute gem and more people who live in the South Shore area should now about it. The food is always delicious, the atmosphere is quiet and intimate, service impeccable and they make great cocktails! I always bring out of town guests here whether for Delicious wood grilled pizzas or for the chefs always creative entrees. Never disappointed.... More

We have visited Ember a number of times over the years and it is always very good. The food is tasty and nicely plated, the service attentive while not overbearing, and the atmosphere intimate with the tables spaced out nicely. We recently visited on a Wednesday evening. I started with the Tuna Tartar Crispy Wonton appetizer which had the tuna... More
