About Us

Our Philosophy

Let us introduce ourselves

EMBER WOOD FIRE GRILL is a casual dining restaurant, occupying the old historic train station in the quaint village of Livonia, NY, in Livingston County. Nestled in the Finger Lakes region between Conesus Lake and Hemlock Lake, we are 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.

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.

Ember is a nontraditional, sharing restaurant. All of our food, wood-fired pizzas, steaks, chops, pasta, and seafood, is prepared fresh and is designed to be served when it is ready. Therefore we encourage sharing. Sharing is a very social and economical way to dine. Our style is not the traditional: “Soup, Salad, Appetizer, and then Entrée.” We strive to be fresh, simple, and unique.
