Delightful place. Wonderful food. One of us had the Poutine (Canadian and Wisconsin) and I had Korean noodles. Both were delicious. People gracious and helpful. Recommended.

I enjoyed it, I pass it everyday going home from work and wanted to see what it was about. I went with a date and it was ok however I think it would have been a better place for a group setting rather than one on one because it is a lot of food for two people

Sushi was great. Korean BBQ was very expensive and not very good overall. Would go back for sushi but not the korean bbq.

Really sharp decor. Waiter Dante was extremely knowledgeable and thorough in his explanation of the menu items. We were a little intimidated at first because we knew nothing about Korean food but Dante made ordering easy. The food was delicious!! Love the way they cook it right at your table. It’s like a personalized version of a Japanese steakhouse with more intriguing foods.

I've never left an All You Can Eat meal feeling hungry after TWO HOURS so this was a first. I'm not sure if it was our waiter or if it's just how they handle things, but the portions they brought out to us would have been perfect for a couple, but not for a table of SIX. Felt like 30 seconds of devouring what was in front of us then 10 minutes of waiting for the next bite. Eventually we got sick of being hungry and left to get something somewhere else.

This restaurant is undoubtedly the best restaurant existing at this time in Fort Myers, Florida. The food is excellent and varied, the service is perfect and the decorations and atmosphere are very attractive. I highly recommend this restaurant. We will be eating here time and time again in the future.

The restaurant was very inconsistent with a previous dining experience we had several days earlier. The restaurant wasn't busy during our last visit and there was very little staff to handle the tables. They were out of several items we had during our first visit. The waiter was not well trained and was not attentive to our table. We ordered soup and it came after he started cooking the steaks. My husband's chicken was cooked after the steak and the waiter burned the chicken to a black crisp! The average check per person here is $50.00, so you would expect a quality meal. We won't be back.

The water our waitress brought to the table tasted like it came straight out of the dish pit. We ordered a mojito and were fairly certain is was just a glass of simple syrup and gin. Our server seemed disinterested in communicating with us and even wandered away while taking our order... it was strange and uncomfortable to say the least. The food was high quality, but the experience was dampened by the servers strange behavior. This was our first visit, and I’m unsure if I’ll give it another shot.

We've been to better Korean Steakhouses, but this was definitely the best in Fort Myers! Our server Keke was very attentive and energetic. We opted to cook the food ourselves, but weren't given any instructions on how the grill actually worked so the beginning of our meal was very charred up until we found out how to lower the temperature. Overall, it was a great experience for a birthday or anniversary dinner! It's something fun and different plus everything we tried tasted amazing. If you are into trying different food this is definitely the place for you.

Loved the food options. Large portions. Delicious food. The concept is great and something we don't have here. Our server was good but wish she would have been more interactive. She wasn't talkative and didn't engage us at all. Great time though and can't wait to go back.

I'm a big fan of Korean food and was excited to see a new offering in Ft Myers. The restaurant has a very polished feel and was very welcoming upon my first visit. The staff was friendly, well trained, and very hospitable. The Server took their time with our questions and what to expect as a diner there. After a little assistance in making our selections we were off and running. The dinner was paced comfortably, the food plentiful, the options varied, and quality top notch. The owners were very visible on the floor and made sure to visit our table and once again made us feel welcomed and appreciated. As I stated in the beginning of my review 'first visit'; so needless to say I've enjoyed going back and am even pondering in my head what I'm going to try on my next visit.

We don’t get to make it to fort Myers often because we live in Naples. And to be honest there really isn’t anything in fort Myers that brings us up this way other then the airport. That has changed tho, we will be making this restaurant a biweekly event. Server was absolutely amazing, Devy truest made it a great experience and pair with how good the food was it will defiantly be a place we frequent.

I've been looking for a place like this near my place and now I've found Ember Korean Steakhouse.

The first time we went here was a busy Friday night but Marlyn (not sure about the spelling of her name), served us excellently. She did a great job, she's very familiar with the menu. If it's your first time, she's not gonna hesitate to help you. She has a very nice attitude at work that made our dining experience enjoyable.

I would come back here over and over again, not gonna get tired of the food because the taste is very authentic. (I've been to Korea once and believe me, this place is awesome)

From the hostess that lead us to our seat, the servers and assistant servers, the manager who I saw that was very hands-on with his people, guests, and the restaurant itself; this is a new place and new experience everyone should try if you haven't tried dining in a korean bbq style restaurant.
