We go to the Embers as often as we can afford. One recent visit was hosted by officials of the PNC Bank in Delaware where we have a number of accounts. The Embers staff cheerfully accommodated the two bankers and our family of 8 as though we were a romantic twosome. As usual, the food was outstanding bit it is the service that makes the experience memorable. The bankers remarked on how much they like to visit us because there is always a trip to the Embers.

Everything is excellent. Starts with a bread basket to choose from several Artisian selections. Appetizers are Tops, we had a few: Crispy Calamari, White Wine Sauteed Escargot, Confit Of Wild Mushroom Strudel & Colossal Lump Blue Crab And Lobster Cake . and the dinners are hard to choose. Salmon, Long Island Duck Breast, White Wine And Fennel Braised Lamb Shank and the Steaks are the best. Even the sides are awesome especially the Grilled Asparagus With Bearnaise & Sauteed Wild Mushrooms.

It's great to have somewhere in Gainesville that is more of a "fine dining" experience. Great food and service every time. Worth the splurge.

One of the finest restaurants in Gainesville. Excellent beef and a lobster bisque to die for. The wine list is large with a good price range and many excellent bottles. Servers are efficient and friendly. I have not had their fish and shellfish dishes because the meat is so outstanding. My favorite: the filet done Pittsburgh style.

Excellent food with attentive staff. We had a large family gathering and usually there are issues with groups of people, however, our experience ran smoothly from appetizer to dessert!
