About

Embers Steakhouse is a Brooklyn, NY institution, started in the 80s and going strong ever since. It is one of those rare, casual spots in the city where the service is attentive and yet the entire atmosphere low-key and comfortable. As its name implies, Embers Steakhouse emphasizes beef and even features meats purchased directly from the specialty butcher right across the street.

Diners at Embers Steakhouse can opt for the house specialty, dry-aged beef grilled to the perfect level, or there are fish dishes, pasta specials and a fantastic wine list to pair with anything on the menu. The restaurant is also open for a popular weekend brunch that is prix fixe and includes cocktails and a stunning array of rich and hearty dishes.

You don't have to go to Peter Luger's. Ember's is just as good--and they don't cheap by dumping butter all over their steaks. Also lots of selections for anyone who's not a big beef eater.

I was looking forward to returning here, but this visit might be my last time. I ordered the filet mignon medium well. It came out looking grayish in color and tasted steamed/broiled. Not what I expect from a Steakhouse. My husband's rib-eye looked grilled, but also tasted broiled. The roasted cauliflower with bacon was bacon-less and tasted steamed instead of roasted. The service was great, but unfortunately the meal was not.

the steak is perfectly cooked, the potato pie is always delicious... don't forget the toll house pie, it's a must if you ask me.

First, we were asked 4 times if we wanted another drink, but no one brought us bread.
The sides were very small and my wife's 20 oz steak was overcooked and in two pieces and not
anywhere near 20 oz. The side order of spinach was one of the smallest I have ever seen! When have anyone seen a steak in two parts?

The worst steak I ever had. This place claims to be a steakhouse but I don't know.

The restaurant is experiencing new ownership. The new owner (Omar) is working hard to maintain high standards. Calamari, steak and salmon was good not great .
