    The restaurant has a very cool vibe and great cocktails and sushi. But I have been to a lot of Korean steakhouses and this place is insanely overpriced. The baseline barbecue package has what amounts to steakum quality meat with zero flavor.. The waitstaff was really good but I’ve paid a fraction of what we paid for our meal here and had a 10 times better experience elsewhere. Definitely not worth it.

    First, let's take on the elephant in the room; You pay premium prices for meat that you have to cook yourself. That leaves the value proposition a little short from the start. On the plus side, the meats were fresh and tasty. But, no black pepper to season with?!? The abundant side dishes were okay, but nothing that would bring me back. Drinks were overpriced with stingy pours on both the wine and liquor. The staff was very friendly and helpful, so that was a high spot. Overall, I would not go again, but it was okay for a one-time experience.

    We kept to our tradition and celebrated our daughter's 18th birthday here. The food and service it the best in the area. When most places seem to not care about taking care of their guests, everyone at Ember goes above and beyond. Keke was a great server and Chris does a great presentation with the Kobe.

    Tonight my sister and I decided to try something new for dinner. We live in Punta Gorda and have eaten at every restaurant in town more times than I care to count. We took a short drive to Fort Myers and we’re so glad we did. From the time that we were greeted by our server, Dennis, we knew we had made the right choice. He explained the menu to us, made suggestions and answered all of our questions. We started with a couple of cocktails, my sister got the vesper martini and I had the Kentucky Colonel, both delicious. We ordered the pork belly bao to start then the Dolsot bibimbap and the japche to accompany our brisket which was cooked right in front of us and served with a variety of sauces and accoutrements. The servers assistant, Donny was friendly and helpful and guided us through the various sauces and sides. Lastly, we finished our meal with an amazing bourbon bread pudding that was sweet, chewy, moist, with just the right amount of warm spices and overall delicious. The manager Keith also stopped by to check in and to welcome us to their lovely establishment. Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience, the food was expertly prepared, the service was excellent and we left feeling full and happy. We will definitely be back, but next time, with more friends!

    Amazing flavors. The Gogi Tacos are fantastic. There are several different side dishes to try with your choice of meats cooked at your table for you. Every single side dish had its own distinct flavors and textures, all of them very good. We had pork belly, ribeye, tenderloin and brisket. They were all fantastic. I have not been to a Restaurant where o tried a bunch of new flavors and liked them all. The ambiance is great as well. The staff is very friendly, and attentive. Our waitress Kiki was amazing. She had so much knowledge of the items we were eating and just over all the best experience we have had dining in years. Thank you. We will be back and telling everyone about your food. Oh yeah The Beat Potato Salad In the world.

    The food was adequate for what it was. I ate here in the past and seem to remember the meats to be more flavorful. Putting that aside the major issue we had was the up charge for extra lettuce. Not only did we order a meal for 4 and only received 3 pieces of lettuce but we also learned that extra lettuce is an up charge. I am almost certain that lettuce and rice can not be so much of an expense that they have to charge you for more than 1 piece per customer. Korean BBQ is great, especially when you can put the meat in a lettuce leaf, with rice, and sauce. This restaurant only allowed us to do that once before we would be charged for another leaf. With the amount of meat we ordered any reasonable person would see that 1 leaf of lettuce is not enough. We did not dare ask for more rice or sauces. I probably will not return to this restaurant as there are plenty of Korean BBQ places with the same level of service and quality of meats but they don’t up charge for extra condiments. With all that being said it had adequate food, with ok service, and, and fairly cool environment. Just not a great experience if you know how most Korean BBQ places operate.

    Ember Korean Steakhouse is like a Brazilian Steakhouse crossed with a Hibachi. The emphasis is on massive amounts of meat - particularly red meat. The meat is cooked at your table. Depending on what you order, you may cook it or a chef may be sent to your table. There are many Wagyu and heritage breed option which are very, very expensive. We had five different people attending our table between waitstaff and cookstaff. The service was all top-notch, but we felt obligate to leave a larger than normal tip since it would be split several ways. It was a very good experience, but also very expensive.

    Worst night ever!!! I don't know what happened to that place. It was my husband's birthday and we had family out of town to celebrate. Drinks were awful, we have been ordering la flama blanca for years and this one wasn't prepared right, twice!. We wanted to order a meal for 6 and the waitress told us not too because was too much food, big mistake, everything was so small, not enough for 6 for sure, she had this attitude like she was doing us a favor. It took her 20 minutes to bring the second round of drinks because she forgot. Very disappointed . Literally ruin our birthday night and threw away $300. Never again!!!

    We always have an amazing meal at Ember. We did a butcher's feast with Kobe and it did not disappoint. The owner Chris came and grilled most of our meal and he's always so hospitable and engaging. All of the staff is knowledgeable about the various cuts of meat and provide suggestions on what banchon to pair with which meat. The cocktails never disappoint either. Truly a one of a kind experience.
