Wonderful service, delicious food in an upscale environment. My filet was delicious and everyone at my table really enjoyed their meals. Great happy hour specials at the bar too!

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.

Very crowed bar mid-week, wall-to-wall noisy people having a good time. Restaurant very comfortable and quiet with excellent service.

I had dinner two nights ago at Embers with my wife and 2 other dining companions to celebrate my birthday. We arrived at the time of our reservation and were immediately seated. Our server Jake was superb. He took our orders arranged and asked about how we wanted the timing of the different courses served and then delivered exactly as... More

Embers has been around for some years and there's a reason - or several - for that. Start with the owners attention. He's always around and always makes you feel at home. Service is always professional. The food is always good. The drinks are always well prepared. In short it's calm sailing in a world of unpredictable restaurants. It's not... More
