Me and my Fiancé was there for a spontaneous date night. We got the All you can eat. The menu is not updated on open table and what I expected was two separate AYCE menus with the different prices, however there was only one option. We sat down to a menu with a happy hour menu option but was not told by our server that this would only be available in the bar area until we tried to ordered the food on the happy hour menu. Reservations on open table places you in the dining room as it states. We have never been to a Korean bbq place so it was refreshing to have them teach us the ins and outs of how to cook the food. It was however awkward to have the server stand over us for 20 minutes. I would have been fine with a short explanation and didn’t really need the server to cook the meat until done. Some people may find this to be acceptable, but it was just awkward. The Server Assistant was awesome. His personality radiated and really made us enjoy this experience. He was very informative and took great care of us from start to finish. He has excellent customer service and it’s a disservice that he wasn’t our server. The side items were delicious and, as a person who hates vegetables, the kimchi radish was to die for. We tried all four meats on the AYCE menu. The pork belly was the most delicious and resembles bacon when cooked. The Chicken was a nice pairing with the pork belly. The brisket cooked and tasted like Philly cheesesteak meat. And the beef golfari is sweet. I enjoyed the beef golgari, my fiancé didn’t. The AYCE includes the soup, sauces, and sides but didn’t include the salad. They include a tip in the bill, so our bill was $95.99. This is fine, but I hate included tips. I would have tipped more if the tip was not included, but once you set that value, that is what you get. That tells me the business believes that is what they deserve, which they do, but I won’t tip extra on a added tip. This was a great experience overall, and we would love to bring our fam

Food was great! Let me say it was AMAZING! However, my only complaint is how loud the music is they play in the restaurant. Other than that it was fantastic!

Amazing dinner. Chris the owners son / manager cooked for us and made the experience the best we have ever had there. The other times we have dined there was amazing, but this time topped the others.

Our first time dining at Embers. Our server was very patient and explained the process. The owner himself came out and cooked our meal at the table. Excellent customer service and great food!! We will definitely be back.

The first time I learned about Ember was around June/July of 2020 and I fell in love! I proceeded to come back at least once every other week for about 2 months and finally told myself I needed to calm down lol.

My last visit was 01/05/2020 for an early birthday celebration and it was the best visit I’ve ever had! Rachel was our waitress and she was awesome and attentive! When I made the reservation for that day I asked them to save me some broccoli (my fav vegetable) as a joke because every time I come they always run out. I kid you not, when Rachel came to the table, she slid the broccoli right to me!!! I was so happy!! Food is always great, they have the best parm truffle fries that I’ve ever had and delicious soju. I brought a cake for the birthday boy and they came out singing with a couple other coworkers and we loved every moment of it! Shoutout to the table next to us who bought us birthday shots!

Also thank you to Scott, I usually get placed in his section and he’s always great and attentive as well!

Obviously I’ll be back, thank you guys so much for always making sure we have a great time! (Save me more broccoli, ok thanks)

Service was outstanding! AUCE was misleading - we were told all sides were refillable but when we asked for a 2nd Kim chi we were told it was $2 - when we asked for a 2nd bowl of soup we were told it only came with 1 (and the bowl wasn’t half full). Ultimately our amazing waitress took care of it for us but none of this information was on the menu or shared at the time of ordering.

Wow! We’ve done Korean BBQ before, But the variety of items offered on this menu was fantastic. Some of us did Korean barbecue, some of us had amazing sushi, we also had the japchae noodles which were awesome! Superior service too, with many servers coordinating together. We loved this place!

Love this place. Food was great and you never leave hungry. Service was top notch. We were there for Christmas Eve dinner and our table was right next to the kitchen. It was very noisy and hectic and we had to listen to all the employees chatter and announcing they were entering with hot grills, loaded food trays etc. Other than that the visit was perfect. If I ever get seated at that table again I will ask to be moved or wait for another table to open up.

Korean BBQ at Ember is a "dining experience", not just another meal. The ambience is modern Asian, with K-pop music and videos in the background. The tables have a sunken-in built-in grill with downdraft ventilation which is quite different from other hibachi tables that normally have hoods over the grilling area, but it works quite well and you definitely don't have to worry about the "smoky clothes" problem. We started with some Japanese Nachos which featured poke-style raw tuna and salmon with slices of avocado and jalapeno, tomotoes and onions over fried wonton skin chips. Very nice to get the taste buds going! We tried the Butcher's Feast for 2 ("Combo A") which featured Prime Rib, Brisket, and Pork Belly which we had prepared by our servers. Rose and Narron did a fantastic job cooking everything to our liking and explaining the different condiments and sauces, a very personalized experience that we really enjoyed. For dessert, we tried a Korean Bingsu shaved ice dessert with pineapple and mochi toppings. This was recommended by our servers and was an absolute winner and the surprise favorite of the meal! All in all, we will put Ember on our list of "special occasion" restaurants... a place to savor and leisurely enjoy a full dining experience.

The food was delicious (and wow there was a lot of food). We were a little disappointed that we had to wait to be seated despite making a reservation and it took a while to get things moving after we were seated, but it did appear that our server was very busy with multiple tables.

We booked Embers for my daughter's 18th birthday party. They were very accommodating and super attentive. The waitress, Rose, was very knowledgeable in regards to the menu, and was able to recommend the perfect dishes. The rest of the staff was very patient with the little children I had with me. The food was amazing! We had the surf & turf sushi roll and the spicy tuna roll and both were the best I've ever eaten. The younger children got 2 orders of gogi tacos and chicken wings to share and ate every bite. Overall, the ambience was elegant, but relaxed enough to enjoy a nice dinner party. We will definitely be back!

This place was amazing. From the drinks to the appetizers to the butchers feast, everything we had was delicious. The a la cart seafood cooked on the Korean bbq grill was our favorite. The veggie Korean pancake and japche were great. Chris, one of the owners, cooked the bbq at our table and he was so knowledgeable about the history of traditional Korean bbq. This has become our favorite restaurant. We drive an hour just to get here on a regular basis.
