I went to dinner at Embers
I went to dinner at Embers after not having been there for many years. The filet mignon was excellent, prepared exactly as ordered! The service was great and the new owner was very nice, friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this old neighborhood favorite.

i love this restuarant but
i love this restuarant but i dislike the noise level. why do people have to talk so loud? it's not a cavernous type place and places are very close to one another and it bothers me that people have to talk so loudly.

I decided to try Embers on a whim. My brother was in from out of town and we were both in the mood for steak. My past experiences with steak in Bay Ridge restaurants has been subpar to say the least. Usually for a decent porterhouse I have to schlep to Peter Lugers or somewhere in the city. Embers was a pleasant surprise. Great wine list, attentive staff and a porterhouse that melts in your mouth. I'll definitely be coming back.

Very good steak, well seasoned, done as requested. Dim lighting , full bar, has a romantic ambiance, however, does get crowded.
Side dishes are well seasoned , vegies are roasted and not bland
Dessert : cheesecake was amazing

Booked for an anniversary dinner
and was given a nice table as requested, along with a complimentary champagne. The service was excellent, but not overbearing. The food was very good, and the steaks were done to order. The only negative was that the waiter had a very thick South American / Latin accent and was difficult to understand at times, but that was easily overcome.

The food was a-may-zing, when it finally came out. As a group of five that was out for a work-dinner, we had PLENTY of time to talk about anything and everything. Eventually it just became too much and almost all of us got antsy for our food. I suppose as a group of five we were slightly larger than what this restaurant is used to, but it still took FOREVER for the food to come. But like I said, when it did it was totally awesome. Everyone was unable to stop eating, all the plates were clean and nearly every steakbone was chomped down to the grinds. All in all a great restaurant, and if slow is what is needed for such good food- it's worth it.

We used to go here when my wife worked in the area .Haven't been back in a while. Still great food and service. Orders were handled perfectly. Only disappointment was that the espresso machine was broken. Otherwise a perfect night.

The steak I ordered a rib
The steak I ordered a rib eye had no real taste to it. I eat steak so I know what I,m talking about. It was OK but not the taste of a real rib eye. Eveything else was good

Made my reservation online and simply noted that it would be my son's birthday. What a nice surprise to have him served a complimentary dessert complete with candle! We were welcomed warmly and treated as if we had been dining there for years. Absolutely recommend.

The staff was friendly and
The 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.
