Embers is an excellent location for a quiet and/or romantic dinner. My wife & I dined there several months ago. Fantastic desserts as well. We'll be returning for an anniversary celebration soon.

Great meal and personable service. Patio is lovely and well hidden from street. Fountain and many trees Fine dining. The lobster mashed potatoes and foi gras were outrageously good. Will return when back in town
