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
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!
We give Embers Restaurant our highest rating....the fabulous filet mignon, great fresh wedge lettuce salad and escalloped
potatoes, and fresh bread were all delicious!
Also, the staff including our waiter and hostess were very respectful and friendly!
Finally, the chocolate soufflé and the apple
pie ice cream were awesome! Our New Year’s Eve dinner was fantastic!!!
For a high end establishment competing with Eddie Merlot, Stone Creek and Carlo & Johnny, the service was very poor:
- Waiter was not polished and professional
- No one checked on us during the meal even after we asked him to
- We observed him working a larger table (5 guests) at least 7 times during their meal but ignored us and others
- No visible management anywhere
For ownership: I’d consider a management change and a massive training initiative
There are much better restaurants for the money you would spend here. Just average food. My steak was burnt on the outside (more than just a nice crust) and had no flavor or seasoning. Maybe try to use a little salt and pepper next time? I could have done a better job at home.
We dine at Embers at least once a week, and it’s always the same - outstanding. Service is exceptional and consistent - in large part because the staff keeps notes on our preferences - everything from our favorite tables (we have more than one), to the way we like our steaks prepared, right down to how we like our cocktails.
The evening was very nice with one exception. Our 2 guests ordered steak and when it was delivered - it was well done (not to their liking) Our waitress who was very attentive and good took them back and replaced them. That left the two of us to eat our meal(while hot) in front of our guests. When their food was finally delivered - it was hot and done to their liking as it should have been originally.
As we were celebrating a birthday - out waitress brought out a phenominal dessert.
Our waitress couldn't have been more accommodating. The manager was also - though he gave some excuse when it wasn't necessary to have an excuse.
We usually eat in the bar, but decided to eat in the main dining room for our celebration. For the price, it was a little disappointing not to be wowed immediately.
Excellent, as always. We've literally never had a bad meal or poor service at Ember's. This visit was to celebrate my husband's birthday. Embers and our waiter (I believe his name is Stan) made sure everything about our meal and dining experience was perfect. We're always greeted warmly and made to feel special at this restaurant....and the food is perfection. In a day when so many restaurants are struggling to provide consistency, Ember's truly stands out and above the others. We'll continue to look forward to many more meals and special occasions celebrated at Ember's!
