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.

Embers Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely wonderful waitperson. Sophia was delightful, and attentive, but not overbearing. She made polite conversation...and smiled everytime she came to our table. The food was delicious, and just the right portion for us to enjoy all three courses. The wine was a bit too small a pour, the cocktail was fine. Thanks for the complimentary coffee with our delicious desserts.
We enjoy going to Embers so much. The dining experience is always wonderful. Our waiter was attentive and timed the delivery of each order perfectly, giving time to enjoy our food and conversation. I highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.
At first this was our "Special Night Out" place but now we look for special thing to celebrate or no reason at all... Food is superb.. Restaurant is beautiful & the staff is friendly...
We have latched on to Ali... She is wonderful! We ask for her station every time we go.. She is efficient, personable & professional... Can't say enough good about her!
My husband and I decided to give Embers a try for our anniversary dinner after finding a groupon for the restaurant. The food was absolutely amazing. We had the seasonal salad, filet mignon (mine with blue cheese crust, medium well and his with charred onions, medium rare) and both were cooked to perfection. We both had 2 drinks (beer and cocktails) and we split our sides which were mac and cheese (the BEST I have ever had) and grilled asparagus. We finished with the Oreo stuff donuts for dessert (seriously life changing!! And each donut was larger than my fist).
My husband and I were both blown away with how delicious our food was. The service was perfect. The ambiance was visually appealing but the noise level was very loud for the first half of our meal. We had a hard time hearing each other and our server. After 30 minutes or so the restaurant started to clear out some and the noice level was much more quiet and the overall feel was much more enjoyable (around 8:30). Our bill was around $172 before Groupon discount and our tip, so while we intend to return, it will definitely be a place for a special occasion.
There's something different about the way you get treated in a high class steak joint, as opposed to any other kind of restaurant. And Embers nails it. They backed it up with an amazing filet (go for the 8oz at least, I was just getting warmed up 6oz in.) I'm going back as soon as I can! I hope Stan is working when I do.
Consistently good, but not great. I'm always pleased with Embers but it's never "wow'd" me. I find it to be well above average but never excellent. As much as I want them to be great, I feel that I've had much better experiences at other steakhouses and fine dining destinations around Cincinnati.
My husband and I went to Embers for our anniversary and had an absolutely fabulous experience! Attentive wait staff (but not overly attentive). Everything we ate and drank was excellent and very creative. We even got a free dessert because it was our anniversary. So nice. Very enjoyable meal!
Embers has great food, especially the jumbo shrimp cocktail, salmon, scallops, any great beef selections. If you like sushi, they have many to choose from. Service is professional without being interrupting.
The atmosphere is warm nice wood walls with cozy booth or table seating. I would recommend Embers, either for a special occasion, or a casual meal in the bar area. Parking is convenient, and valet service is available. Enjoy, as we have.
Embers is without question our favorite Restaurant. Service is always above and beyond, the food is amazing, always offering new and seasonal fresh options. My husband and I were celebrating a special accomplishent and Michael sent a fabulous fresh desert to share we did not expect it but certainly appreciated the gift. Thank you for being exrordinary!!
I enjoyed the service most of all here. I made a reservation at 930AM for 745PM. My table wasn't ready until 8PM give or take which I wasn't too happy about. Valet service was great, the scenery and environment was awesome. I enjoyed the service from all the staff. The food was okay. I ordered the $55 steak well done, it was charred more then I liked and my date didn't like the chariness either. The meat was perfect though. Mashed potatoes left much to be desired. The spinach was great and the duck fries grew on me. I would rate my meal 3/5. I came in with a $50 discount LivingSocial voucher and I was charged full price for the meal anyway. My server Jackie apologized and said corrected the mistake I'm currently wait for it to post to my account. I was very happy with how the staff worked together, I like the process and it was a pleasure to speak with Mike who came to our table to check in on us. I'll definitely come back again if there's another LivingSocial voucher deal on the table. Thanks.
