A culinary artist lives here. Chef/owner Scott Boshaw is as alive and energetic in person as his inventive, creative dishes are on the table. The presentation is beyond beautiful. The taste, texure and blend of flavors stretches the imagination. From the papadams with cucumber and yogurt sauce to the tremendous array of apps all the way through an entree selection that takes over anything fabulous a human has ever tasted to the homemade ice cream and other desserts, this place rocks! Wine list offers world class options and cocktails are pulled together like none we have ever tasted. Dining here is not only a memorable experience but the attention to detail by the gracious servers is second to none. Setting is refined by not pretentious and truly fantastic food at the highest level. A definite must do. Because the menu changes 4 times a year dining in Ember is a remarkable adventure.
Over the years we have dined throughout Europe in Michelin rated kitchens and fine dining restaurants. Ember can compete with any highly ranked restaurant here or abroad. Marvelous ambiance. Service is attentive and extraordinary, the food creative and delicious every time we have dined at Ember. The menu changes 4 times a year so we always look forward to trying new appetizers and entrees. This winter the scallops are prepared to perfection, elk the most tender I have ever had. The plating of food is a work of art. Portions ample and filling but not over done. Wine list is extensive with an Ember private label wine that is truly enjoyable. Cocktails of various blends denote there is a mixologist behind the bar. The Omakase events are out of this world and demonstrate Chef Scott is among the most creative genius chef 's in today's culinary industry. Ember is a definite must do when in Breck .
Me and my wife heard great things about this restaurant and decided to take the plunge. However we were turned away Monday night 1/16/2012 at 8:10 pm by a woman at the hostess stand who informed us that they were not allowing anyone else into the restaurant due to, "..the snowy weather". It had started snowing earlier in the day and apparently ember closes during nights when it snows. This is puzzling since Breckenridge is located in the mountains and the entire economy is based upon snow. We instead went elsewhere and will tell anyone who will listen to not go to this place based upon the rude treatment of the staff. As a side note there were at least six or seven tables of people in the restaurant when we arrived and it did not appear that they were being ushered out due to the weather.
A warm, welcoming atmosphere. Very creative menu. Lovely ambience. Helpful, knowledgeable staff. An outstanding dining experience
