- Reputation does not fitSteakJunkieDined on 9/10/2014Went to Embers because I heard a lot of good things and I couldn't get a last minute reservation at a Manhattan steak house. The wait staff was very good. The steak however was not as juicy as I'd hoped or as big. I ended up using the house steak sauce which was very good just to give the steak some flavor. The sides looked liked they've been sitting somewhere for a little while and the salad was very small. Overall the price was manageable however I would've paid more if they gave more.
- Wonderful Meal, Great ServiceCatwithaCDined on 9/7/2014The food at Embers is always excellent, and this time was no exception. The wait staff is very friendly and could not be more accommodating. Everyone in my party was very pleased and left very happy!!Special Features:

- jilloDined on 6/14/2014Embers is a great place to celebrate that special occasion with friends. The food is to die for. The porterhouse steak for two is so soft it practically melts in your mouth. For dessert the peach melba is a must have. I have been to embers on many occasions I was never disappointed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- slow service fair fooddisappointed14Dined on 6/14/2014Went in for lunch waited 15 minutes for menu. Once we received menu ordered cold antipasto (delicious) then waited 45 minutes for sandwiches which where fair. This place is a staple in neighborhood and I have been here before. Lunch states on menu sandwich comes with fries and pickle and when asking fornpickle waiter said only burgers come with pickles ridicilous. Quite pricey and even the the bill was done wrong on the high side. In all terrible experience will never go back againSpecial Features:
- Amazing steak!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/31/2014This is the place to go for a steak dinner. They have fresh, high-quality beef, and they certainly know how to prepare it. Had the filet mignon, one of the best I've had in quite a while.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Fantastic Porterhouse for TwoBayRidgeFoodieVIPDined on 5/2/2014Ember's Steakhouse has a lovely, quiet ambiance; the staff was attentive, the Porterhouse steak was cooked perfectly and was absolutely delicious. Their potato pie is a "must have" side dish. The caesar salad was cold and crispy but could have used more dressing. Nice quiet bar and the bartender, Tom, could not have been nicer when we joined him for after dinner drinks. I will definitely be going back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Not what they once wereGregVIPDined on 3/25/2014I remember embers being an upscale cool steakhouse to go to and now it seemed like a glorified diner. There were two people in the whole restaurant and the modern look they were trying to achieve is far worse than what it once looked like. It used to look like a traditional steakhouse which is what people want. Service was great and people were nice but i won't be back unfortunately. I knew I was in trouble when I walked in and some employee was in front smoking a cigarette and walked in with me. Classy restaurants wouldn't let that happen.
- Birthday celebrationBonnie1202Dined on 3/22/2014Took my husband here for his birthday. We have been to many of the steakhouses in Bay Ridge and we had never gone to Embers. Since they have been there for a long time, I wanted to try it. Did not disappoint. I had the double pork chop cooked with Hot Cherry Peppers. It was delicious but so big I could not finish. Took it home and had it the next night. Enjoyed it just as much.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great dining experiencealmarDined on 3/15/2014Wonderful restaurant in the heart of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Everything about the dinner was perfect. The drink from the bar was great,the salad was perfect and the steak we shared was wonderful. Just make sure to save room for dessert!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- A Brooklyn Gem!HDinerDined on 2/27/2014I hand' been to Embers in quite some time, but needed a place to meet my brother for dinner. I am happy to report that Embers was just as good as I remembered it being. This is a terrific go-to place that I will be visiting again very soon!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best Steak In NeighborhoodBorisDined on 2/23/2014We went to grab dinner on a Sunday night. The kitchen was closing at 8:30 and we were running late. The Maitre D was kind enough to sit us at 8:20 with no issues. First off we had the calamari and muscles in red sauce. Both were fresh and tasty. Our friend ordered the aged t-bone and we order the aged porterhouse for two. Can you say DELICIOUS? The steaks were the bomb definitely worth the price. If you're considering outback or embers you should probably go to outback because you have no idea what a real steak is. A+Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- anniversaryOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 2/16/2014My boyfriend and I enjoyed our anniversary dinner at embers last weekend. We always enjoy a new dining experience in Brooklyn not wanting to feel we need to travel to Manhattan to have a nice meal. Everything was wonderful.Special Features:

- valentines dinnertaranjrDined on 2/14/2014we went for valentines day the food was delicious the service was a little slow but the overall experience was great will be returning soonSpecial Features:
- Off night perhapsTraceyPDined on 2/5/2014Went early with my father and grown children. There was one other table of two there. Service was extremely slow, food came out sporadically and only room temperature. Bad night perhaps.
- took too longralphDined on 2/2/2014The food was excellent... from beginning to end ... outstanding ... But we entered the restaurant @ 2:30pm and didn't leave until 6:30pm ... there were two other tables working at the time ... We were a table of 12, but It just took way too long to bring out each course ...Special Features:
- $eriously? Move on...BayRidgeProfDined on 1/18/2014Wow. So sorry we planned a dinner with old friends at this place. There seemed to be NOBODY IN CHARGE!!! On a Saturday peak dinner hour and it seemed to be run by the waiters alone...if there was a maitre 'd we sure didn't see any sign of him/her... We were given the choice of two cramped, poorly situated tables and we felt overlooked and unimportant. It took a LONG time to be approached...a LONG time to get drinks...a LONG time to get our order. When the order came. not one was correct. Not ONE! Potato was wrong or veggie was wrong or cut of (expensive) meat was wrong. Seriously? And all this came to close to $300.00 for 4 people with no appetizers, only 2 glasses of wine (total-- not each...) and one martini. (skimpy martini.)
- Great StandbyDaveAriDined on 12/29/2013The service was terrific and the value was amazing. The porterhouse for two was a steal at $70. It included two sides each. Their potato pie is worth the trip alone. The steak is the main reason to go to a steakhouse and this place didn't disappoint. I would not place it the league of Peter Lugers , Keeans or the Old Homestead however a top notch steak without the hassle of making a reservation a month in advance. Next time my party desires steak we would definitely go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Value For Money!SalkaDined on 12/24/2013Having lived in Bay Ridge for a number of years, after having a steak craving I dicided try. Pleasantly surprised with the knowledge posessed by the wait staff and was floored at the very inexpensive pre-fix special which they offered. I eagerly awaited our fare... The kitchen however, did fall a bit short with delivery of the final product. Quite flavourful, everything you'd expect from a steakhouse, but inconsistant execution; the skirt steak was extremely moist, seasoned well and enjoyable while the sirlion which was rodered medium was very well done to extent that the char made it difficult to enjoy. Overall, I'd say, you get what you pay for...stay clear of the pre-fix but their a la carte offering is good!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- be with someone specialjilloDined on 12/21/2013I went to embers for a special dinner with a friend. We ate the porterhouse steak For two. The steak soft and cooked to order. The carrots were cooked just right not too soft or hard. The potato pie was also good. Leave room dessert.the chocolate Sundae was full of nuts.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best steak (sirloin for two)PearlsDined on 12/7/2013Best steak (sirloin for two) in Bay Ridge, if not NYC. Potato pie is a must and the steaks were cooked perfectly to order. Great for a party of two, or in our case a family of eight. The service is very accommodating, but not overbearing. A hidden jewel in Bay Ridge.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The staff was friendly andfn3jayzDined on 11/23/2013The staff was friendly and attentive without being over the top. The meals the 4 of us had were cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. I will be coming back I will recommend this place to everyone. . The only downfall is the parking... but other then that I personally enjoyed Embers better then Ruth Chris, Mortons and Peter Lugers.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good SteakCcoolnpDined on 11/23/2013Food is still good, even though it was better several years ago, and they got rid of their prime rib?? Very pricey.. considering its one of the few steak houses in bay ridge, its not even in the city.Special Features:
- InconsistantdhiggDined on 11/1/2013This was the second time I went there, and the first time was much better. I ordered the special for the night, which was fish, and since I had ordered seafood there before I expected it to be good. The fish was mushy, tasted like ammonia, and had clearly been frozen, which was obvious given the flavor and texture. I was disappointed. Not sure if I'll go back again.
