I have eaten and Vic and Anthony's in the Golden Nugget 10 times it was always great, I thought we should try Ember, big mistake. Oysters and Asparagus were excellent and so were the drinks. But, the steak ($60) was terrible and I still wonder why they would even serve it as they did. We ordered it medium and it came out as tough as a shoe. My wife said we should not say anything so we didn't. But, I was not happy at all.

It was my fiancée’s birthday and she didn’t know that I invited our daughter and her parents as a surprise. Simon made sure that it was a total surprise for her and gave us excellent attention! Thank you Simon!!

One of the best dining experiences we’ve had in a long time. The food was perfect. The atmosphere was upscale, but relaxed. Our server (Travis) was, friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. This is definitely my favorite restaurant in the area. I’m looking forward to returning.

Outstanding service. Ask for Donnie. Atmosphere is only surpassed by the quality of the food. Superb wine selection. Not a better place for a romantic dinner or dinner with friends.

The Ember Grille experience was very nice. My wife and I have dined there on several occasions and had good experiences. This visit was with another couple and it too was very nice. The steaks were very nice and perfectly cooked. One of the group ordered the Sea Bass and he said it was the best he ever had.

Everything was wonderful from the moment we arrived! My date and I thoroughly enjoyed the Cabernet wine flight, paired with delicious steaks, green beans, and au gratin potatoes. As if everything wasn’t amazing enough, we lucked up with one of the most knowledgeable servers, Eli! Be sure to make yourself a reservation, you will not be disappointed.

Nice quiet place to eat if you want to eat steak in Lake Charles. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and the steak and cocktails were good. Wasn’t overly impressed with the bacon wrapped shrimp.

We visited the restaurant for our 10 year anniversary dinner. I was a big skeptical at first, but I can honestly say, we enjoyed one of the best meals we have had in a long time.
I started with the Cesar salad. It was a generous portion and delicious. My husband started with the bisque that he enjoyed as well.
My steak (bone in ribeye) was absolute perfection. It was so good. My husband had the bison ribeye and he enjoyed that too. We also shared the truffle Mac and cheese and grilled asparagus.
The portions were so large we took the left overs home and ate the rest for dinner the next night. So good!
Our chocolate cake with ice cream for dessert was huge and a bit too much but still delicious.
I highly recommend and will be returning soon!
