This past Saturday, my boyfriend and I had our date night here. The food, service and atmosphere was truly remarkable. We both had steaks and they were absolutely wonderful. Our waiter was Lee and he was so respectful and knowledgeable about the food. It was a great night and I can’t wait to go back.

Was out of of several things. Should’ve told us before we waited over and hour. Fried green tomatoes was cold. Wasn’t fresh either. Ordered dry aged ribeye medium rare. It was medium to medium well. Sent back and was still over done 2nd time around. Didn’t taste like dry aged beef either. Poor experience. Been several times all others have been great.

I will private message you so that I can learn more details and if you allow me, invite you back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our New Year’s Eve experience. Everyone was friendly, accommodating and personable. The food was perfect! I’m glad my husband and I shared - the portions were plentiful.

We will be back!

The last time we ate at Ember, around 2 years ago, the food was mediocre at best. We heard they had changed chefs so we decided to give them another shot. We were pleasantly surprised at how wonderful it was. We will be back!

Ember Grille was excellent. We were seated immediately and the waiter was very informative regarding the menu items and the best value for side choices for our small group. He was not at all intrusive but there when you needed him. We had a mixture of beef and seafood entrees and everyone was very pleased with their choices.

Service was decent enough. Waters and drinks were refilled at a good pace. Server brought out the wrong side item with our entrees, but replaced it quickly.

All the food seemed to be overcooked. My corn chowder was extremely hot, and felt as if it were microwaved for a long time. The halibut was extremely dry, and crust was burnt. The AKC appeared to have sat in a water pot for too long, and was pretty waterlogged. Asparagus was stringy, and the lobster on the Mac was rubbery.

We were there to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday, and I let the hostess know. She told me they offer a birthday dessert, and that she would let the server know. But it was never acknowledged, and the server didn't offer any type of dessert.

We enjoy this restaurant. The only reason I didn’t give it a perfect score was because the scallops were cold and fishy and the buffalo ribeye had a lot of tendon tissue. Other than that it was great.

Underwhelming. Had much higher expectations for a $200 dinner for two. The service was pretty average. Our server was nice enough but it took awhile after being seated before he greeted us. It also took a long time for him to process my CC and everything seemed slow in general.

My wife had the halibut and I had the sea bass. We both had the classic meunière based on our server’s recommendation. While the fish was ok, the preparation was not very good. Tasted like stale canned bread crumbs. The truffled mac and cheese was luke warm when they brought it out and the sautéed mushrooms were just average.

Overall, we just didn’t feel like the meal was worth $100 per person. I would say if you’re offered a complimentary meal at ember then go for it. Otherwise, I would suggest going to the Le beaucoup buffet or venturing out and dining somewhere near downtown Lake Charles or outside the casinos area.

Really do not understand why they ask you if it is a special occasion when making reservations and once we got to the restaurant but never mention it again after seating and do nothing at all

Service was very good. We had King crab legs, they were not hot, they were lukewarm and the melted butter was cold. We asked for more melted butter and it was cold too. Otherwise it was a very nice dinner.
