I took my best friend here as a surprise for her birthday, and she loved it! The service was friendly and personable. The food was flavourful and delicious. And the atmosphere was trendy, yet ambient. We will definitely return!

Went to Embers Korean Steakhouse for the first time last night. Excellent meal. Had the Butcher’s Feast, but the one we had was a special that was so well received they are adding it to the menu: Marinated ribeye, short rib & chicken. We figured it’s Korean, let’s have something with Korean flavors & it was excellent. The accompaniments were also perfect, including a salad with a nice light sesame & citrus dressing. The wait staff was attentive & led us through a rather complex menu, and did all the cooking at the table. All in all a delightful evening with great food & service. And one of our old bartenders from DeRomo’s, David is their bartender. Fits in like a glove. I highly recommend it! Sorry, they don’t have a website but are located at the southwest corner of College & 41 in the shopping center.

Food was excellent. Staff attentive. Had the combo for 3-4 people. We were able to substitute chicken for the pork belly. We started with the Tuna Carpaccio.
We will definitely be back.

Somewhat of a "schizophrenic" experience.

Strengths:
*Japanese nachos are superb
*Korean side of menu was among the best Korean we've had (and we dine in LA and NYC regularly). Banchan is excellent (but you have to request kimchee specifically) and includes unlimited refills
*Don't miss the Butcher's Feasts, which include a spicy starter soup, the banchan, and a variety of meats (the pork belly is superb) grilled at the table
*Green tea creme brulee is tasty
*Wine list includes more options than expected
*Keitlyn was one of the best waitresses we've ever had

Weaknesses:
*The sashimi was disappointing. Coarsely cut and the offerings are somewhat limited
*A better wine list would elevate the restaurant (most of the selections were cheap but of lower quality)

Overall, a great stop for Korean-food aficionados and novices alike.

Didn't like only one person eating at a times. The person who's food is done first is finished eating by the time the last person even gets there food cooked.

Excellent quality ingredients, good array of Lorean accompaniments, fun grilling at table. Can be parties of 2, 4 or many more. Nice menu selection, comfortable interior. Educated and friendly servers. Attentive and happy to assist you in ordering. Highly recommend.

Had never had Korean BBQ before. A fantastic dinning experience. Excellent good, knowledgeable servers . You do all the cooking if you wish. We really enjoyed it, only asking for help with the scallops. It can be an expensive meal, depending on choices, but well worth it

Had heard amazing things about the restaurant so was super excited to take my dad there for his birthday. It was a Wednesday night and our waiter was doing double duty as a waiter and bar tender. It was 45 minutes from the time we ordered for the food to hit the table, my mom's sandwich (she wasn't game for the food) never came until we asked, and for All You Can Eat we had to ask for everything twice and then finally gave up ordering any additional food because our poor waiter was running around so much and even when we ordered, he wouldn't remember, and at that point we had been sitting there for 2 hours with 2 small children. I may give it another shot one day but for $200 for 6 of us, I definitely do not feel like I got my money's worth. Not in a hurry to go back.

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

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.
