Diner Reviews
  • "Saw some really good reviews about this place, but I must admit we were disappointed. They really tried to be creative and inventive, but sometimes it just didn't work. The redneck salads sounded great, but it really needed more than the sorbet for a dressing - it was dry and not as flavorful as it could be. We were seated in the main dining room, which I think would be nice in the winter. It was just so-so in the summer. food was good, just not as great as we had read. Gluten free friendly (GF menu available), so that is a big plus if you need it."

  • "Ember has a quiet, intimate setting indoors and a beautiful, spacious patio outdoors. There's no problem hearing a conversation with your dinner partner inside, even when the restaurant is full. The food is unique and tasty. They served my scallops in an over-sized plate with the food arranged in one corner, making me think they forgot the rest of my order! I think hearty eaters would be disappointed with the portion sizes, but that does not stop us from going back to enjoy Ember whenever we visit Breckenridge."

  • "We had one of the best dining experiences during our visit to Embers on Friday night. The food was amazing, and the service was just perfect. This was a great find for our one day visit to Breckenridge. My wife is a vegan, and the chef created something special for her, and she couldn't say enough about how wonderful and unique it was. Our waiter even got her to go back to the kitchen to thank the chef. Great wine, great food, great service, its the trifecta!!"

  • "My husband and I made this our one "no kids" dinner during our week in Breck. It was a great choice. Great food and even better service. And I loved that it wasn't the type of place to slap down a giant platter of food with portions big enough for an entire family to share; it was sized just right."

  • "Don't often write I review but felt compelled this time. The restaurant was amazing from the romantic atmosphere to the outstanding food. Every dish was prepared beautifully. We had the roasted tomato soup which I believe was a special that evening and it was to die for. For our entrée we had the scallops which again were amazing. You won't go wrong on this dining experience"

  • "We made a reservation(recommended)and had a terrific experience. Jake was our server he took excellent care of us, even recommended a nice N/A drink for me(pregnant)while my husband had a delicious sour beer. We started with the Peach Caprese, a great combination of sweet and salty, a nice snack to kick off the evening. We ordered Buffalo and Waygu Beef for dinner, both terrific and included the most thoughtful, creative sides to really compliment the meal. For dessert, we had the Coconut Cream Pie, which was exceptional, especially the tingly taste of the habanero mousse, again, who would have thought to pair creamy coconut and a spice like habanero. Overall,a wonderful experience, we will make this a regular stop every time we visit Breck"

  • "We had an amazing meal at Ember. We started with cocktails with Todd the bartender. He thoughtfully and creatively prepared delicious drinks that went well with the summer season. We proceeded to try everything on the "Kindle" menu (small plates) and thoroughly enjoyed each dish. The best were the lamb cheek tacos and venison carnitas standing out above the rest. Our waiter brought the dishes out in a great order, and explained each dish in detail."

  • "Our party of 4 dined during the busy July 4th weekend. The service was outstanding, and the food was simply amazing. The appetizers, including the peach caprese pizza and the venison carnitas were delicious, inventive and as beautiful to look at as they were to eat! Our main courses ranged from seared scallops, divinely prepared and presented, to succulent steak and delicious monkfish. Each entree was accompanied by an array of tantalizing sauces and garnishes! And each was a visual treat - artfully prepared and presented. Chef Scott is exceptionally talented, and Max and Jake did a tremendous job of welcoming and serving our group. If you love great food and creative presentations, go directly to Ember! You will be so glad that you did!"

  • "I am a foodie and the cuisine here is spectacular....really interesting sauces. The best scallops I've ever had.....I know, 'she ordered scallops in the mountains?! Really!' The sauce was made with St. Germaine which I've never had before.....it was so yummy. We sat at the bar and if you want a lively fun experience, sit there even if tables are available. We got to know all the dinners.....only 8 others and it was a very fun evening. We were celebrating a birthday.....perfect place to go."

  • "My wife and I were able to enjoy a date night alone at Ember during our family vacation to Beeckeniridge. Their specialty drinks were unique and full had multiple layers of flavor. We even requested custom drinks with jalapeño vodka that were excellent if you like a little spice. For appetizers we had the lamb cheek tacos that had a nice Asian/Mexican fusion flair. We shared the Waygu beef as our meal and thoroughly enjoyed it. Many people hear that a place is good for foodies and assume you get small portions. We had plenty to eat and left full. Finally, our server, Parker made the entire experience come together with attention and care that few waiters give to their tables."

  • "The menu is not extensive but has some excellent choices and they change it about 3 times a year. My wife had crab stuffed pork loin and I had a wagu steak. Both tasted great. The service was excellent. Our waiter, Jake, was very attentive and friendly. We'd recommend to anyone visiting Breck."

  • "Jake was fun, fast and knowledgable as a server. Although menu was not extensive, it had great flavors and sauces and sides were tastefully matched to entree."

  • "Chef, Scott Boshaw, does amazing things with excellent ingredients. The plates come out like art. The flavors are sensational. Food like this would be competitive with fine restaurants in San Francisco or NYC, but would cost three times as much. The place is very homey-comfortable and the service is very good. Wine list is quite broad and priced very reasonably. Ask for Jake the waiter; the guy with the crazy hats."

  • "Excellent and original food. I had the elk which was outstanding but my wife's chicken was the best. It was a chicken breast with a Side of carrot infused buffalo wing style sauce. Super creative and delicious. Todd the bartender would give the Dos Equis guy a run for his title of " Most Interrsting Man In the World." Ate at the bar and loved Todd's foodie insights. Only gripe was a long-ish wait at check in. Everything else was great. "

  • "My husband and I were regulars at Cafe Alpine and absolutely mourned its closing. After moving to Boulder from Breck and finding out that Scott, a Cafe Alpine Chef, took the helm and opened Ember, we couldn't wait to visit. Because Cafe Alpine was a beloved, first class restaurant, our expectations were high, yet Ember still seriously impressed us! Our waiter, Jeff, was perfect and the food, OH MY, the food! From appetizers to dessert, every scrumptious offering was creatively and expertly prepared and beautifully presented. Great wine list too! Plus, Ember offers you the option of sampling delights at an upscale, happening bar if you're not up to dinner just like its predecessor. Dining experience worthy of a bucket list. A Breck must do!"

  • "My favorite mixed drink of all time is the Sexy Woman! It is sweet and spicy! We love the spicy pampadams and dip to munch on instead of bread. This time we split a delicious pear and cheese salad to start followed by quail stuffed with cornbread over a spicy barbecue sauce. We loved it so much our waiter took us to the kitchen to meet the chef. We look forward to dining here again."

  • "We really enjoyed this restaurant in what used to be a historic home in the middle of Breckenridge. Our group of four each ordered a different unique option off of the menu. Each of us enjoyed our own special choice with a nice wine pairing from the extensive wine list. The menu is not too long - but each choice is well thought out. Enjoy!"
