My wife and I have visited Ember on many occasions and have never been disappointed. During our most recent dinner we shared a wood-fired pizza and a "small" dinner salad (very generous portions). Both were wonderful and we left very satisfied. We could hardly have eaten at McDonalds for the $20 tab!

Great prices and selections, plus they have some type of "special deal" on various days of the week.

Menu changes seasonally. Always cooked to order with fresh ingredients. Always a great meal and reasonably priced! Our favorite!

Great food and ambiance. From beginning to end, reservations, seating and service EXCEPTIONAL. We had Asian wings, salad, Jamaica jerk chicken, pepperoni pizza, and fries. We eat out every night and this place is a must.

My first visit. On a Tuesday and it was recommended to make reservations. I could see why. Service was great. Food was good and definitely not standard small town fare. Nice ambience and will be back with whole family.

EmberWoodfire Grill continues to provide creative food, a good ambience and attentive staff. There is a wide selection of items on the menu; a decent and fairly priced wine list and a wide assortment of beers on tap. When it is busy, a reservation is necessary.

A group of teachers went and shared a number of the appetizers. We also brought our own wine. There was no corking fee. It was a very nice atmosphere and the food was terrific.

Wonderful wine selection and the ambiance of an eclectic restaurant. Was very happy with the sliders and the calamari salad is over the top.

Unfortunately this establishment is going down..terrible service ( never cleared one plate, forgot orders, etc) , Substandard wine list...they should be embarrassed...(if they really cared they would have some local high quality wines instead of clearance crap) We tried to support them, but sadly have given up..Save your money and time.

We have been to Embers several times with family and work colleagues. Each time we go We find something else to love. If you've never been the menue is a little different and they let you know the food comes out at different times. This might seem odd but they encourage sharing and the more people in your party the... More

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!!!
