Happy HourGreat happy hour. The bar is comfortable with a good choice of small plates. Excellent wines.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice for special occasionsWe loved the whole experience at embers. All the fine dining restaurants were booked like Ruby's, Morton,s and other well known names but we were able to sneak in here that evening. I think they are up to par as much as those restaurants. We also like that the portions were still nice but not over the top like others where you leave with heartburn. Finally, the price is just a shade under those other restaurants which made you feel like you didn't break the bank for a nice dinner.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHow did I miss this?!?I can't believe it has taken me this long to try Embers. From my experience it should be considered on of the city's top steakhouses. The service was more casual than a Ruby steakhouse, but very high quality and our server was extremely knowledgable about the menu and chef's methods. I will go back for our next special occasion.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMEmber's was GREATI took my wife to Ember's for Mother's Day/ because she's awesome. The food was great, the wine was great, and lastly the service was great. Our waiter knew just when to stop by the table yet he let us enjoy our meal with minimal interaction.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best thing I can say isThe best thing I can say is I will return to Embers.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Visit to EmbersMy wife and I visited Embers for our 17th Anniversary, and had a wonderful time. I let them know in advance we were celebrating, and they placed us in a premium location with limited noise. The meal was outstanding, especially the Ahi dinner special and the banana panini desert.
You won't go wrong with a visit to Embers.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMade my husband's birthday specialWe went to Embers to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday, I had eaten there previously but it was a first time for my husband. The food and service were excellent. I was impressed when the waitress suggested the less expensive of 2 alternatives on the menus based on our food preferences (she got a big tip for that one). The staff was very attentive to us. We will definitely go again.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTop notch steakhouseI had the Colorado as opposed to the more expensive angus filet and it was on par with steaks ive had at some of the top steakhouses.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly recommend Embers.

Loved it!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA Newly Found GemWe attended for my mother in law's birthday. My in laws had never been before and were kind of skeptical when they arrived. The waiter (Sean) was excellent. His demeanor set them at ease and he helped them find selections they enjoyed. The service was EXCELLENT and the food was great as well. I think my in laws found a spot they will be attending regularly.
The food is moderately high priced but the quality is well worth it and the service makes you not regret spending it. I would definitely recommend reservations if you're going on the weekend.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe atmosphere is very upscale,The atmosphere is very upscale, servers are very friendly and knowledgable, and the steaks were cooked perfectly. We will keep Embers on our list for special occasions as the food is a little pricy for us to visit regularly. Should there be another groupon we will definitely purchase and we will likely go back again even without a discount due to the absolutely perfect steaks.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEmbers has fine steaks andEmbers has fine steaks and seafood, but they also have a very nice sushi offering.

We have said several times that the steaks of Embers have been better than some other high-end restaurants in town, and I much prefer the side options.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice dinner with ourVery nice dinner with our family.

One of my favorite spots in Cincinnati to dine. Great bar for after dinner too.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAll four of us had some typeAll four of us had some type of Filet and it was delicious. The restaurant was very busy but the service and food was great.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place!This is one of our favorite restaurants for special occasions, with and without our kids. The food is consistently excellent, they accommodate our gluten intolerance and those meals are just as tasty as what they would be prepared regularly. Bar and wine list excellent. Our kids, who are teens now, were always accommodated kindly when younger and there are always families dining here...it isn't ever loud so either the families that dine with children have children who are well behaved in this type of environment or the acoustics are good. It is an all around wonderful dining experience. Just as a side note, I have dined here at least 10-15 times over the last 5 years and haven't had a bad experience and no I am not related to the owners!12/24/2012 12:00:00 AM
