The dinner was fantastic. We tried a little of everything. The elk, qual, pork loin, wagyu beef from start to finish dinner was superb! Don’t let the exotic distribution scare you away.

Beautiful venue. The chef makes up his own food pairings. Very unusual but good. We had prime rib. It had a great flavor but was hard to cut. Not a good piece of meat for sure. I would recommend just for atmosphere and unusual dishes.

Great restaurant. Building is beautifully decorated in a way that enhances the food experience. Staff are great at letting you relax and taking care of everything for you. Food was excellent with good portion sizes. Chef is very creative. We wanted to share our comments with him and he was super engaging. All in all, a complete package. We were euphoric at the experience.

The ambience and the service was excellent - the lobster rangoon presentation was pretty, but the lobster portions did not taste fresh, but rather canned, The Elk portion was not a filet, but a tapered end which was a touch over which made the elk tough - the quail was excellent .

Celebrated our 1st anniversary and what a treat, from the start we were brought to our own table for 2 in an alcove-type area and warm lighting. Our excellent waiter knew exactly what our meals were down to every detail, and they were delicious. I ordered striped bass and my wife got the quail. The mixed drinks were tasty and of good proportions, too. Plenty of water refills from various floor staff with friendly attitudes that made the experience more complete. We had a memorable time and would revisit the Ember for another special occasion.

The menu is limited, but that is fine, because it is still hard to choose among the unique offerings. Each of the dishes we had was outstanding and the service was perfect -- attentive but not intruding. The setting is also very nice. The noise level is a low din, so easy to hear our conversation among the four of us, but noisy enough to feel like we could talk without being overheard.

We stumbled into Ember, having made last-minute reservations on a Saturday night. The space is really great; an oldish-house with several small dining rooms that make the restaurant feel smaller than it is.

The cocktail menu is very impressive; they have a special section of classics that were all very well-made.

The food menu itself, kind of punches you in the face with its randomness. We had a particularly good server who described the chef-owner's approach to combining flavors that would not seem to come naturally. That's putting it mildly!

Much to our surprise, the flavors themselves went surprisingly well together, and although we had some difficult proteins to cook, everyone was very pleased with the technique and temperature of our entrees.

Would definitely recommend!

We had a lot of fun at Ember! Our server (fellow Hoosier) was fantastic! He was personable, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable about the food and drinks! Some of our party even went back after the meal to meet the chef! We shared a desert themed after he chefs trip to Universal Studies and Harry Potter World. It was delicious!

We have eaten in “the finest” all over the world and Ember is a real find. The decor is contemporary & creative, the service (ask for Steve) is informed, very helpful & friendly but not intrusive. I had the Snow Peak Mt cocktail & had to refrain (as I was driving) from not having another - it was unique & delicious. And I haven’t even gotten to the Pad Thai salad which is a diverse mix w a marvelous curry dressing. Both the pork loin & the Wagu beef entrees were perfectly done, beautifully presented and down right yummy. We did save room for dessert - the chocolate taco is both amazing to look at and amazing to eat - one of those times you are tempted to lick the plate :)

Food is bad and pretentious. It portraits itself as a ‘foodie’ or ‘fusion’ place, but food doesnt taste anything due to a mix of too many ingredients in the same dish.
Charged me for a plate i didnt eat.
Overall, very misleading place

We went to Embers on New Years Day on the last day of a Breck Ski trip. It was a perfect farewell dinner to a great town. The food was wonderful and unique and our group of 6 sampled each others varied entrees. Our waiter Jack was welcoming and made us feel like we were part of an engaging dining experience. Will come back on our next trip!

I wanted to love Ember. Our friends had said it was amazing but it just wasn’t very good. At this price point it should be excellent. My kale salad arrived without dressing on it. The calzones weren’t calzones and the lentils weren’t very flavorful. Nothing was seasoned. And beware of the buckwheat gnocchi with lychees that got lost on the way somewhere else and ended up on the plate. The steak was great and so was the lobster Rangoon. Great service though! Our waiter was the nicest guy and very knowledgeable. The staff were so kind and accommodating to move our reservation up at our request. I’m sorry to say that I wouldn’t recommend it.

Ember is our #1 choice for dining in Summit County and Breckenridge! Whether it is the two of us for a romantic evening, our extended family for a wonderful dinner or just hungry for quality food in an inviting atmosphere - where we can easily converse. Most recently, we dined with seven extended family members ranging in age from 13 years to adults. We had all of the appetizers except for two and each was delicious. Our top two were the lobster rangoon and the kale salad- fabulous with large "croutons" that were reminiscent of a tasty grilled cheese sandwich. We shared entries of Wagyu New York steak, striped bass, elk, vegetarian calzones, quail and pork tenderloin. Each was a taste sensation, the meats were succulent and more than enough food. The elk and quail were the best we have ever had anywhere; the bass, calzone and pork- creative and delicious. We shared a dessert with salted caramel and chocolate "soup"- to die for, together with the chef's homemade ice cream and the chocolate taco. Each time we have dined at Ember the staff has been attentive, caring, extremely knowledgeable and fun! The wine list is extensive and very reasonable, especially for a world-class ski destination. We will return again and again.

Our new favorite stop in Breckenridge. Chef owned. Menu changes all the time. Wonderful appetizers and entrees. Three of us shared four appetizers. So yummy. Two soup of day a tommy yummy and I had simple salad so good. Our fourth had the kale salad which looked very good and the elk entree. Thumbs up on all. The atmosphere is lovely. Intimate. Not too loud. Very good service. I hate to recommend so highly as maybe we won't be able to get in again. Waiter said they have been here ten years.
