Love dining when I'm visiting Lake Charles. This is one of the very top fine dining restaurants in LC so even if you are not visiting the casino this is an excellent choice.

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!

Still one of my favorite steak houses on the entire Gulf Coast of Texas and Louisiana. The filet is better than anything you can get in the best steakhouses in Houston or New Orleans (and I have tried most of them). Additionally, the crab cake appetizer is superb. The lobster mashed potatoes and black truffle mac n cheese are also very good.

We had given up on eating at Ember several years back because of the quality of the food. We heard that they had a new chef so we tried it again about 6 months ago and it was delicious. This visit was not so much. The macaroni and cheese was dry and the ranch dressing tasted like a big blob of mayonnaise. I am not sure if the quality is suffering because they don't have the same chef back after reopening from COVID19 or what. We will try them again but if it isn't as good, we will go back to Vic and Anthonys again.

Decided on a quick girls night dinner. Everything was wonderful, from being seated by Raul , our server Donny and the food. We started the evening with wedge salads, loaded Mac & cheese and creamed spinach. Our entree’s consisted of Duroc port chops and halibut. The evening was topped off by a fantastic brownie and ice cream dessert. I definitely recommend Ember Grille and Wine Bar if you’re looking for a great night out.

The best restaurant in Lake Charles. The food is great and the service is better. We always request Downey as a server because he is absolutely the best.

The entire wait staff is excellent. It is obvious that the management values the customers and has high standards for quality and service.

We have tried many other restaurants in Lake Charles but Embers is the best.

The bisque is delicious, the ribeye is grilled to perfection and the sea bass is my favorite.

Looking forward to our next visit
