Ember is a wonderful fine dining experience! Our waiter Scott was so personable and saw to our every need with a happy attitude. Every thing we ordered was delish, perfectly seasoned and prepared. The fillets are the best, you can cut them with a fork. The pork chop is amazing! Lamb chops are wonderful. The craft cocktails are delicious also!

This was our first time here, and we really enjoyed it! We had cocktails to start - try the “Raspberry” - it was wonderful! The appetizers we chose - jumbo prawns and wedge salad were excellent! For mains, I had filet and my husband had Buffalo tenderloin. Both were cooked perfectly and so tender you could almost cut them with a fork. Perfectly seasoned too! The only disappointment was the Maine lobster risotto- it was fishy and funky and we left most of it. I guess it’s true you shouldn’t order lobster in the desert. Dessert was an apple pumpkin cake that was presented beautifully and a divine end to our dinner. It’s a pricy dinner, but worth it for a special night out.

My husband & I made reservations for a birthday dinner. We specifically chose Ember because of the featured oysters. Much to our disappointment you didn’t have them according to Jean, our server. We split a prawn cocktail and my husband had the wedge (bacon was not done), fillet that cooked to perfection and creamed corn. I ordered the Veal Milan that was bland & tasteless.
At the end of our meal, Jean brought a dessert that said “Happy Anniversary”. My husband explained that it was my birthday and Jean immediately rectified the misunderstanding.
This is the first time we have visited your new restaurant and I don’t think we will return. What a major disappointment.

Joanne, We really dropped the ball on you very special day. I apologize for the mix up on your birthday. I have shared your review with the entire staff to assure we get these thing right in the future. We all appreciate your feedback. As for the oysters, I understand your disappointment. If you have the occasion to return, I would be more than happy to host a dozen or so to try to win back your good favor. I would hope you would give us that opportunity in the near future.

The ambience very pleasant relaxing. The small combo provides a pleasing addition to the relaxing atmosphere; however, as I do not have a voice , any background noise makes conversation quite difficult under any circumstances and the evening in question was no exception for our party.

Went for my birthday dinner. May wife ordered a filet cooked medium. When she cut into it, it was raw. She sent it back to be cooked. They brought out a shrimp cocktail for her to eat while they recooked her steak, she doesn’t eat shrimp and I told the server at the beginning I’m allergic to shrimp. When brought the steak back, it was the same cut up steak and over cooked. The server said “sorry” and left. They did take the filet off and bill, but she didn’t enjoy here meal and I done eating by the time the steak was brought back. We ate here and had a great experience in the past. Not sure what happened this time.
