Embers is my all time favorite restaurant. I like it much better than Ruby's or other quality steakhouses in the area. They have a menu that suits both mine and my wife's tastebuds with the steak an sushi. We both love the service an privacy you get to enjoy while at Ember's. Always very easy to get a reservation around... More

Great experience - both food and service. Sushi, salad, steaks and seafood were all excellent, with sincerely attentive service from waiter, table staff, and manager. We mentioned 3 of our party of 4 were celebrating recent birthdays, and they surprised us with free desserts complete with candles. Exceeded expectations all around.

Service is exemplary and the food is even better. My wife got the veal chop and I got the 12oz filet mignon. Our sides were potatoes, vanilla bourbon sweet potatoes and caramelized brussels sprouts. Everything paired well with each. Left stuff and definitely plan on coming back!!!!

We came here for Valentine's Dinner last night. We made a reservation for 7:00 and were seated immediately upon arrival. Our waiter was very accommodating and helpful in helping us choose what to order. Tuesday's are half price bottled wine. We ordered a bottle of Cabernet that was suggested to us by our waiter and started with the crab cakes... More

We dined with a friend and shared sushi. We've done this many times in the bar area and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The sushi is very fresh and tasty. Have never been disappointed!

Terrific restaurant with a nice variety of cuisines but very strong seafood and steak options. Excellent crab legs, fish, various steaks, side dishes, vegetables, and more. Filet Oscar was outstanding! Nice wine and cocktail selection. Also known for their oreo stuffed donuts. It is basically a Beignet with an oreo inside. Interesting to try once but not awesome and not... More

Went last night for dinner. Everyone ordered steak and each steak was ordered done differently. All four steaks were cooked to perfection. What a wonderful dinner. Service was exemplary. Jackie was our waitress and she was very attentive. We will definately go back.
