- poor servicebrooklynEatsVIPDined on 11/6/2014We arrived at 8:10 for a 8:30 reservation on a Thursday night. We were told it would be a few minutes, but that turned in 30 minutes. They apologized, and as we were walked into the room, there were 3 AVAILABLE TABLES that could have accommodated our group of 3. We ordered our meals, it took almost 30 minutes for 2 of the 3 appetizers to come out; after about 10 more minutes we flagged down another server as our server never checked in at the table, and following apologies we were brought the 3rd appetizer, telling us it is on the house. The main course eventually came, the food was OK, but the server was rarely around to check in on us. When the check came (we had to ask twice), they charged us for 4 meals, rather than the 3 we ordered!
- Quiet dinnerSeeLeeVIPDined on 11/4/2014Everything was great but the steak. The appetizers and everything was fantastic. The steak and lamb chops, even though we ordered medium rare, it was very dry and over cooked. Order rare if you go. The shrimp bisque soup was fantastic and so were the sides. The waiters were attentive and quick.

- OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 10/10/2014I don't know why it took me so long to find Embers, but sure glad I did. Simply stated, this is a wonderful place.Special Features:
- kingkennDined on 10/9/2014Embers was a great suggestion from OPEN TABLE. I had the 20 ounce Rib Eye for $40.00, and it was PERFECT! I usually put salt on everything but it wasn't necessary on this night. Carlos My Pedro, our maitre d', was EXCELLENT! Suggestive, informative and always accessible. It was even better that we went on 1/2 price THURSDAY where bottles of wine are literally half priced.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good not GreatTheRavenDined on 10/4/2014You can't beat he prices at this Bay Ridge staple, ( $25.00) 14 oz sirloin steak dinner. Our dinner was the porterhouse for 2, with 2 sides and a bottle of house wine. The bill was $100.00 and the service was very good, the meat was cooked as ordered. However, if you are expecting your NYC steakhouse entree, you won't find it here. Simply, the food is good but not steakhouse great.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good valueBayRidgeNewbieDined on 10/3/2014I have been going to Embers for 20 years. I used to live close to Peter Luger but always preferred Embers. An excellent value. Service is always attentive and the ambiance is comfortable/cozy. Had a great meal there last Friday with my nephew--a real steak lover. He was very impressed with the food and the prices.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- 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 ServiceCatwithaCVIPDined 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.

- 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:
