“City Feel on the South Shore”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

Sophisticated but relaxed city feel on the South Shore. The food is ver good especially the starters and a good drink selection. It hard to find this type of place in the suburbs.

“Superb Service, Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

We were invited to join another couple at Ember. We only live 15 minutes away but it would be our first time dining there. Although a bit hesitant based on other mixed reviews, we graciously accepted. Let me tell you... GLAD WE DID !!!!!

They accept reservations for any size party so our table for four was ready when we arrived. We were welcomed and escorted to our table. Alyssa, our waitress, provided exemplary service. She knew the menu, explained the various dishes, was attentive to our needs without being overbearing and made us feel very welcome with her brilliant smile and great personality. Kudos to Ember management

Although we didn't order appetizers before our meal, the martinis were delicious. Our entrees,
pan seared duck with confit leg, oven roasted chicken breast (2) and an eggplant pizza were SUPERB. With the exception of 2 slices of pizza, there was not a bit of food left on any plate. For me, the duck was the best I have ever had !!!! The creme brulees for dessert... again SUPERB.

We sat at our table from 7p - 10:45p. We were never rushed or made to feel rushed. It was just a great dining experience. WE WILL RETURN...

One note: I would recommend reservations as we saw several parties turned away because all tables were reserved.

Thanks... glad we found this place.

“Fabulous Dining Experience”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed a delicious New Year's Eve dinner at Embers. Restaurant ambiance is soothing, in contemporary shades of grey. Server was courteous,attentive to our wants, efficient, and highly knowledgeable of the eclectic menu. Selections ranged from several fish dishes, poultry, and many wood grilled meat selections.Entrees were priced from the high $20's to mid $30's. Food was piping hot, beautifully presented, with ample portions. My wife began with an arugula salad, mounded on top of a pear tartlet, candied pecans, and laced with a sherry vinaigrette. I had a salad consisting of field greens, marcona almonds, dried cranberries,and a dollop of panko encrusted goat cheese. I enjoyed a sirloin steak , which was prepared perfectly, and drizzled with a whiskey pepper sauce. Sides of grilled asparagus and a stilton potato gratin rounded out my plate. My wife chose a thick tenderloin with Idaho hand cut shoestring fries, braised swisschard, and sauteed porcini mushrooms. We had no room for dessert, as we were quite full with our meals. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys an upscale dining experience, without traveling to Boston. Embers is our new favorite venue! Will definitely return in the near future. Hats off to the amazing chef! Our experience was a 10++.

“Slow and steady doesn't win the race”
Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

First time to Ember. Awesome atmosphere food was very good but service was incredible slow especially the bar. Difficult to get waited on or served. Too big a place for just two bartenders.

“One of the best on the South Shore”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

I have been to Ember on numerous occasions. The food is always fantastic and the atmosphere is perfect for a quiet evening with just my wife or with friends. You want to order the chef’s appetizer, which is a sampling of current items the chef is making. We get this almost every time and have never been disappointed. They have a very good menu with something for everyone. I also enjoy the asparagus pizza which has a thin crunchy crust. Main course not to miss is the Pork, Tuna or Scallop dishes. Desert not to be missed is the Blueberry Lemon tart (Warning, enough for two) Nice wine selection, Our favorite here is Paso Creek Cabernet. Bartenders also make some mean martinis!! This is on my top for recommendations; you don’t find this fine of a restaurant so far away from the city.
