A word from Ember Urban Eatery
Hip, cool restaurant located between downtown and fountain square on the cultural trail. Outdoor seating overlooking the downtown skyline. Daily lunch specials and special weekend dinner features. 12 taps with local Indiana craft beer. Perfect for a business lunch, watching a game or sharing quite time with that perfect someone enjoyiing a glass of wine.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We made a reservation for 6 people and had 2 cancel at the last minute. Shortly after being shown to our table, the owner asked if I had an Open Table reservation. I told her that I did. She then proceeded to berate me in front of our group, telling me that she would be "eating the cost" of my party being smaller than my original reservation stated. She then said that I needed to sign in to my Open Table account to prevent that from happening, and that if I continued to "overbook", it would reflect poorly on my account. She then proceeded to sit 2 tables away and lit up a cigarette. I have brought smaller parties to restaurants where I've made Open Table reservations and never heard a thing about it. We won't be back!"

  • "Great patio, view of downtown, and the chicken wings may just be the best in Indy (and I consider myself a bit of a wing snob!). The staff and owner were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Will be returning soon!"

  • "New downtown spot. Our first visit to Ember Urban Eatery was very good. Didn't know what to expect...what we got was excellent food, simple/comfortable atmosphere and great service. Looking forward to the addition of outdoor seating. The Italian beef sandwich was delicious!"

  • "I read good reviews for this place but was completely disappointed in our personal experience. We had the chicken and brisket and found both to be very dry. The chicken was overcooked and mostly not edible. The brisket should have been served with an au jus or something to provide moisture. When asked how our dinner was we expressed our disappointment but it fell on deaf ears. I don't think they knew what to do. We will not be going back"

  • "I originally saw them on Fox 59 dine out. So after reading the menu I bought a couple of gift cards. Wow, what a great deal. Not only was the food great, there were so many choices that looked good, we couldn't decide. We ordered the caprese appetizer and it was great. Our waiter brought over a mushroom stuff cap appetizer that they were trying out and even my husband, who does'nt like mushrooms thought it was good. Our table had the Flat Iron steak, a burger and chicken All was great."

  • "Very disappointed! Dined with a group of 8 for Friday dinner. We were seated in the walkway between booths and the bar - with one end of the table practically in the entryway - guests were squeezing by all night. . Our server seemed nervous and scatterbrained. We ordered the wings for an appetizer, and enjoyed them very much. Unfortunately, the evening went downhill from there. After placing orders, we were told they were out of shrimp. Then told they were out of french fries (how do you run out of french fries!?!?!?!). After changing up orders for half the table, our food finally arrived. All food was bland and needed better seasoning. Four cheese pasta was very bland and Chicken Roma simply tasted like frying pan grease."

  • "Seating was cramped and by the door; so cold! Not sure what white BBQ sauce was suppose to taste like. Roma chicken was fair."

  • "Three of us tried this restaurant via Devour Downtown. Unlike many places, almost all menu items were available on the DD menu! We had the brisket, the flat iron steak and the pasta with spicy red sauce and added the optional shrimp (which involved no up-charge). All were very good, especially the vegetables with the steak and the marvelous brisket. We wished we had known of this restaurant recently when we spent $150 for tickets and more than that for dinner for 2 people downtown. As dinner menu items at Ember are $11 to $17 this will be our "go to" place for pre- or post-concert dinners from now on. One of the owners, Shelly Odendahl, inquired personally as to our satisfaction and thanked us for coming. Unusual and very welcoming."

  • "I expected Ember to be more of a foodie's restaurant after looking at the menu. The smoked wings were very good, probably the best thing we ate. The "gourmet" mac and cheese was nothing out of the ordinary. The brisket wasn't as good as Hard Rock Cafe's brisket. The flat iron steak wasn't quite what my husband was expecting either, after reading the menu. I also had made a reservation, had the confirmation and they wrote the reservation down as a different time in their book. That would have been fine, mistakes happen. However, they acted as though I was wrong even when I showed them the email reservation and acted as though I was putting them out."
