Opened in the spring of 2004, Embers is a contemporary American Steakhouse with a twist. Classic Steakhouse offerings along with complete selections of seafood & sushi are available in a warm inviting atmosphere.

Embers, as the name implies, evokes the warmth and comfort of a glowing fire; from the stacked-stone torch and gas lanterns outside to the glowing candles within. Black & White photographs of Cincinnati landmarks and celebrities create a sense of history and place, while large oil canvasses and vibrant floral arrangements punctuate the rooms with color.

Service person very good but speed of services very slow. 40 minutes to get entrees. I had scallops and they had traces of ammonia smell/taste which means high bacteria/ going bad. At these prices not good.

Very crowded and thus very noisy. Others in my party enjoyed their entrees.

Overall, this is a great place to go. Service and food are always good...reasons we keep going back. It is a little pricey for our every weekend dining out, but we like to go and fot it in our budget when we can.

My husband and I immediately knew after the first time we’d been here that we wanted to celebrate our anniversary here as well. It certainly lived up to our expectations. I adore their signature Flirtini cocktail, which made happy hour that much better (we also ordered some sushi rolls for such a reasonable price). The dinner was absolutely phenomenal, steaks cooked to exactly the temperature we had requested, and our server kindly brought us the Oreo stuffed donuts—our favorite restaurant dessert in honor of our anniversary! It was such a memorable night and I loved the soft Ember lighting. Will definitely be back!

Embers is one of our favorite restaurants. The food and service is always impeccable. There are many great choices of food and wine on the menu. It is a little pricey, but good value. We have never had a bad experience there.

While a bit on the pricey side, the food and service will not disappoint. Fun to start in the bar area for a drink and then later head to a table for dinner. If you are fortunate to have Stan as your waiter, he’ll take great care of you.
