    Wow. Where do I start. We have never been here before and I booked a reservation for my GF's bday. As soon as I checked in the hostess wished her a Happy Birthday. We were then seated and there was a Birthday card on the table waiting for her. Our server Frenchy, who was amazing this entire experience, came over and wished her a Happy Bday and dropped off 2 glasses of Champagne. Brent Rumph, the GM, then came over and wished her a Happy Bday and dropped off 2 more glasses of Champagne. Frenchy then went over the specials, the menu, and any questions that we had. We started with (2) appetizers: Pork Belly with Quail Egg and jalapeno jam. The pork belly was so tender and amazing. The jalapeno jam gave it some sweetness/heat but not over powering. Wagyu Meatballs with a tomato sauce on top of a creamy polenta. Very rustic dish that was very flavorful. We didn't think the appetizers could be topped but we were mistaken. Braised Buffalo Short Rib on top of Bleu Cheese Mash potatoes served with carrots and spinach. The short rib was served with 2 rib bones and it was so tender the bones slid right out. Best short rib we have ever had. The Bleu Cheese Mash were so light and creamy and the veggies were cooked to perfection. 24 oz Porterhouse cooked to a perfection medium rare. The sear on the steak was amazing and the seasoning was spot on. The steak melted in my mouth and I couldn't wait for the next bite. Maine Lobster & Truffle Risotto was amazing. It had great flavor and lots of lobster. They even brought a birthday desert for the Bday girl. The food was amazing. One of the best dinners we have had BUT we can't stop talking about the service from top to bottom. Frenchy was amazing. Always checked on us to make sure everything was good. He knew the menu inside and out. Also, had this great attitude with a smile on his face. The GM Brent came by multiple times to make sure our experience was great and was appreciative we came.

We have never had a bad meal or bad service at this restaurant and that is why we continue to come back on a regular basis!

    Frenchie is an absolute asset to your team. His service far exceeds the rest of the team. He exudes 5 star service! Items from other runners or servers were brought to the table and just handed across my guests, something that I don’t expect at a restaurant of the caliber and certainly something that could be taught by our server. Even the gent that appeared to be the expediter didn’t show 5 star service. Everything was delicious, my husbands lobster was under and Frenchie looked at it and knew also. It was sent back to the kitchen and returned still under but we didn’t send back again. Cocktails are amazing here!

    Ember at We-Ko-Pa Casino ResortResponded on June 15, 2022Thank you so much for the great feedback and recognizing Frenchy. He is truly an asset to the restaurant in so many different aspects. Please come back to see us when you have the occasion to do so. Regards, Brent Rumph GM at Ember

    Hosted my sister’s medical school graduation dinner at Ember in June 2022. We had an exceptional experience and have no complaints whatsoever. Despite the restaurant only having a few tables busy (Tuesday evening), the service was first class, and they even kept the piano player on until the tail end of the evening. Our server was also exceptional and went above and beyond to keep out table happy, including some of my very demanding family members. Food wise, everything was on point. I split a 32 ounce ribeye with my father, and it had the perfect balance of lean mean / marble / flavor; we at every bit. I’d also highly recommend the wagyu beef on the hot stone or shrimp cocktail for appetizer. To drink I had the smokey manhattan, which had a great presentation and even better taste. I will absolutely be returning next time I’m in the Phoenix area.

    Ember at We-Ko-Pa Casino ResortResponded on June 17, 2022I wanted to thank you for such a detailed review and the time you took to write it. It gratifies ma greatly that we made your sister's night a special one. I look forward to have you back very soon. Regards, Brent Rumph GM at Ember

Many special drinks not on the menu, just ask. We eat here two or three times a month. Bison, pork chop, steaks are all great. Special salads. Certainly one of the top restaurants in the Valley, and we have tried them all.

We got several complimentary items for our anniversary (glass of champagne, dessert etc) and had our favorite spot on the patio where Ryan treated us as kings.

    Excellent service, as always. For special dining deals and holidays (Mother’s Day), they should think about including a mimosa at brunch as part of the meal since the package is quite expensive for what you get. It’d be a nice touch. They handed out roses to all of the Moms and there was live music. Very nice. Food was delicious as were the cocktails. Will definitely return.

    We celebrated our 5 year anniversary at Ember and had an absolute amazing experience. Everything about this restaurant is outstanding. Our server Jean (Frenchie) was the best! Dennis the wine sommelier was very knowledgeable and our wine paired with our dinner was better than we expected! The chef Matthew came to our table and spent some time with us as well and was a delight to speak with. I had the 12oz NY and my wife the 8oz filet. Both steaks were made perfectly and exceeded our expectations. We can’t wait to celebrate different occasions and tell our friends all about this perfect dining experience!

    I have reviewed Ember at WeKoPa many times. This will be more of a guide to experience Ember. The best way to try Ember is to start with Happy Hour Tuesday through Friday from 4-6pm. You find a seat at the bar and Jacob will delight you with an amazing cocktail. If you prefer a classic cocktail it will be made to perfection. If you are a little more adventurous you can try the signature cocktails (which are only 10.00). If you really want to make the most of your cocktail experience ask Jacob to make you something special. You can enjoy appetizers and salads during happy hour (also 10.00 each). The bar does provide full dinner service during the restaurant hours. Once you have experienced the Happy Hour you might just want to get a reservation for dinner. The staff is all very good, but John is a cut above. He will guide you through your entire dining experience. If you desire a great bottle of wine they have an outstanding selection. Ember is perfect for couples, families or larger groups. Finally if you want to finish your night with a cocktail the bar is open till 11pm on Friday and Saturday. We have tried many fine dining establishments and Ember continues to stay at the top of our list. Cheers!

    As I have given Ember 5 stars on our last 3 visits, I am hoping this was just an off night . Particularly disappointing as this was to be a special last dinner as our season here is over. It was obvious that Ember was short staffed though our excellent waiter “ ran as fast as he could” to serve many tables and still did an excellent job being friendly and ensuring we were looked after. Twice we overheard waiters asking the hostess not to seat anyone else in their area as they could not handle anymore. Unfortunately the usual excellent food was less than par tonight with cold sides and rubbery lobster. My husband loved his Wagyu beef last visit but was perplexed as it didn’t look/ taste anything like the cut he had last time ? We will be back next fall and hope Ember is back to “ excellence”.

    Ember at We-Ko-Pa Casino ResortResponded on May 7, 2022Thank you for the feedback. I only wish we could have addressed your concerns while you were in the restaurant. We all hope to see you when you return to the valley. Regards, Brent Rumph GM at Ember
