Best ServiceA great meal and the best service I remember receiving, ever!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEnergeticEmbers still has a very eclectic interior with a vibrant bar scene. Items ordered: Chilean sea bass sushi, crab cakes, rack of lamb, ribs. The sushi and crab cakes were perfectly prepared and full of flavor. The rack of lamb was prepared medium rare and was very good. The ribs were OK.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Blue Ash RestaurantI have dined at most of the Blue Ash restaurants at one time or another and have never found one I was impressed by until I found Embers. The menu includes a great fish selection, good steaks, and even a little sushi. The food was great. I enjoyed the sea bass, some sashimi (tuna and salmon) along with a great green goddess salad. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday PartyWe had a great time at Embers. Loved our waitress. She was great!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily dinnerWe hosted a group of 8 family members. Everyone was very pleased with the food, service, and selection of wines and drinks. One of our party was in a wheelchair and we were seated in a perfect location to put her chair. our waiter was great, always attentive without hovering. Our meals were wonderful. Perfectly cooked and modern without being too bizarre. I would heartily recommend The Embers for gatherings in big family groups as well as more intimate settings. Well done!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM41st anniversary celebrationEmbers does fine dining better than most in Greater Cincinnati. I love their sushi selection and their steaks are awesome. Stan was the best he made a special occasion memorable.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic experienceThis was my first visit to Embers and the experience was great! The staff was friendly and professional with outstanding service and the food was fantastic. I am looking forward to my next visit. See you soon.
David Doan6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat TimesThis is my second time returning to this restaurant. Each experience has been great and I love the ambience. Each member of our party loved their food selection. The Amish Chicken Breast is delicious. My husband proposed to me at Embers and celebrated our 1st Year Anniversary there as well. The waiter really catered to the occasion with a special dessert. Not much of a chocolate fan, but my husband devoured the Donut Oreos.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellenceOur dining experience can be summed up to: EXCELLENCE6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday DinnerMy husband and I took our adult son to Embers for his birthday dinner. It was a wonderful experience. The food and service was superb! And, they gave my son a free dessert for his birthday. The only reason I didn't give the service five stars is that the waiter told us about the half price bottles of wine on Tuesday night, then charged us full price. He quickly corrected the bill when this was pointed out to him. Glad my husband was there to read the check in detail--I usually don't.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMEmbers is our "go to" restaurantEmbers is our "go to" restaurant - great choices on the menu and everything is always delicious!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinnerWe were celebrating our son's graduation, had heard great things about Embers but had never been there. Our waitress was excellent, the food was outstanding. Best steak we have had in a long time, and I would come back just for the banana dessert.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was one if the best mealsThis was one if the best meals I have ever had! The service was extraordinary! The food was beyond fabulous. Best steak! Great sushi! Great fries! Loved the donuts with the Oreo cookies inside. In a word - Ember's is spectacular!!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceWe took our friends here as a special "Thank You." Although the food was top notch , it was the service that made the evening incredible. April was our waitress......what a gem they have in her. She was friendly & really knew her stuff.
I would recommend Embers to anyone for that special occasion.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food, okay serviceRecommended this is as an impromptu jumpstart to girls night out for a friend and me. I had just gone for the 1st time with a group of friends just a few days ago. Fell in love with the stuffed avocado and couldn't wait to go back for that and to try the sushi. As with the 1st time, the food did not disappoint. Absolutely scrumptious. My friend loved the avocados so much that she ordered a second order. I ordered the sushi special. A bit pricey for a roll ($22) but delicious nonetheless. Drinks were good too. Even though we had table reservations, we opted for the bar area as it seemed a bit more lively. So, great experience. However, our server fell below expectations. He had very low energy and we had to chase him down a couple of times.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waitstaff was Emily. AOur waitstaff was Emily. A pure professional. She had an excellent command of the menu items was pleasant and made our evening quite special. The sea bass and sushi were excellent. The Zinfandel wine of the month was quite tasty.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat filet mignon, good caesarGreat filet mignon, good caesar salad, delish creme brulee. Food was excellent overall. Service was great, we were served by more than just the waiter. The restaurant was full and it was Saturday night. They were very catering to our 3 year old as well.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy 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 AMDelicious!Sushi was very good.

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.
