Emory’s is located on the shore of Silver Lake, a 106-acre natural spring fed lake. The restaurant’s interior decor is very “lodgy” with high open beam ceilings and spectacular westerly views across the lake. In addition to our spacious 6,000 square foot building, we feature the largest outdoor lake front deck in Snohomish County.

We had such a great time at Emory’s. The ambiance was beautiful. I felt like we we in a resort lounge . The view from our table was gorgeous. Our sever was exceptional. The food was way too good. And the icing on the cake for me was having our picture taken to commemorate us celebrating our anniversary with them. I will definitely be back.

NataliiaG, Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you will not return, and we will share your review with our staff to ensure they are more aware of what's going on at the table, and have proper communication with our guests. We have no intention of rushing our guests. Sunday night we did have Comedy Night with guests reserving our restaurant, but that begins at 8:30pm. If there was an issue, the manager should have communicated that properly as well. Thanks again for your review.

First time guest and won’t be our last! Michael, our server, was fantastic. He was thoughtful, attentive and engaging. The young lady working at the hostess stand was quite pleasant and the bartender very helpful. I can not say enough how great the staff made our night!

Emory's is a fun place to go for Happy Hour. However, we weren't especially impressed with the food in the main dining area. Prices are high and the food was not great. The service is very good. We will go back for Happy Hour but not for dinner.

The food was just so so. Burger was really greasy. Our server brought a hand held device to pay with. Asked if I knew how to use it and I said I could figure it out. She stood over me watching and waiting for me to put the tip in which is auto set to 20%. I felt obligated to tip the 20% since she was watching my every move. Then I find out a 3% fee was also added to my bill for govt regulated programs.

Thank you for your review. The service charge is displayed on all our menus. A few years ago we added a 3% service charge that goes directly to the back of house as opposed to increasing our prices due to feedback from our guests. You can adjust your tip percentage accordingly based on the service provided. If you could provide us your servers name or more information about your reservation, we can make any necessary improvements with our staff and training.

Usually decent but we ordered an appetizer that never came and a waitress who was too busy helping out with a large party this visit. Really bummed

Responded on February 24, 2020

Thanks for your review. We hope the appetizer was removed from your bill. The server should have partnered with a manager so you were not neglected during your visit. Please feel free to ask to speak to a manager in any instance so we can help make your experience positive!

Food was not worth the higher prices we paid. Just average food with an above average price. The service was good.
Did no appreciate the 2 dollar Service Charge! On my all ready expensive bill. I asked server what was this service charge. Was told it goes to kitchen?
Would have appreciated a warning before we ordered. Yes it’s only 2 dollars, but it’s the point. I spent 100 dollars on food that tasted like regular food and I have to pay a service charge? Give me a break.
Yes it’s a beautiful place to dine and the service was good. The FOOD sucks! The cheese cake tasted like a freezer.
The lasagna tasted like frozen lasagna. The lake house burger was ok nothing special for 16 dollars.
The salad was delicious.
Was not impressed at all!

Our menus state "We add a 3% service charge to your final bill in order to compensate for increased medical benefit costs and to help provide a living wage to our non-tipped kitchen staff. If you wish to have this charge removed, please ask to speak to a manager". Your review has been shared with our Chef, and if you are ever unhappy with your dining experience, please don't hesitate to speak to a manager so we can have an opportunity to make things right.

We went here for a late Valentine's dinner and it was wonderful! We were lucky enough to be seated outside with an unobstructed lake view. We ordered the manila clams, seafood risotto, and the salmon - all of where were delicious. We will definitely be coming back!

The food was tasty with interesting choices for spices/sauces. However, the menu options left very little choice for lactose intolerant diners. The acoustics in the dining area are not ideal for an intimate dining experience.

Lack of knowledge from server’s in dinner paring for specific wine on dinner entrees.
Upon a agreement choice by server’s was a bad option/choice with our dinner!
Prices errors were created upon closing the ticket.

I have visited Emorys many many times over the years.
We visited this time to celebrate my wives 60th birthday with our family of 10 on Sunday evening.
Half of the dinners were luke warm at best. Our soups and salads didn't come out together.
Adding to the issues our server was no existent.
When he did come around, he had forgotten the previous requests.
The table busser and fellow server were the heroes in the end.
Doing all they could to cover for his shortcomings.
I have this feeling this was a isolated occasion. I will return sometime soon to find out the answer.
But certainly not with a group of 10 people. I was embarrassed for the choice for such a intimate occasion..

Superb food and atmosphere, with lights twinkling on adjacent Silver Lake. The restaurant was very busy when we were there but the service was still prompt and attentive. Highest-quality sashimi tuna in an imaginative presentation was one of the high culinary points. Excellent wine list with lots of high-quality choices as well as some good values.

This place is a hidden gem! We went on our anniversary and were treated to great service. I had an issue with my steak and it was fixed immediately and they took the meal of my bill. We will be regular customers from now on.
