We've frequented Ember for about five years now. The menu changes slightly from season to season. There are always a wide variety of choices and everything is tasty. The steak salad and raspberry jalapeño wings are two of our favorite staples.

Good meal, but the bar area is to small. Will go back again and have recommended this to friends and family.

I live in an area that is overrun with restaurants of every kind so driving 30 min. to eat at an out-of-the-way restaurant doesn't seem to make sense...unless it's this place. The food is outstanding and the service is exactly what you'd want at restaurant like this. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and was attentive without being... More

What a wonderful experience - friendly, clean, fun place that serves tappas and drinks. The bartender seemed to know most of the customers by name. There was quite a range of patrons from romantic couples at tables, families with kids eating, and a fun bar crowd. Small town restaurant pub at it's best!

In terms of menu, Ember offers interesting and tasty choices, while consistently paying careful attention to presentation and seasonal variations. I have eaten there on many occasions over the years and have never been disappointed by anything from the kitchen or that bar. However, I must express my ongoing frustration with the absolutely horrible acoustics. In fact, I have even... More

After months of talking about trying this place out we finally made it. We loved it. 3 key things to be aware of: 1. Highly recommend reservations 2. Family style food servings 3. Food comes out as it is ready, not all at once.

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!!!
