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.

The occasion was a double date. My wife and I been to embers a few times and each experience was great. The couple that was with us was first timers and they said that was the best food they’ve ever had! We were treated great, we didn’t feel out of our element or looked down on. Food was great. The waiter was nice and attentive. Overall we had a good time.

Our trip to Embers was definitely worth it! My girlfriend and I went out for Valentine's Day/ our 2 year anniversary. I got to get all nice and dressed up, which is rare for me. The food was exceptionally well made and our server Stan was extremely knowledgeable of the menu, food and drinks. I will definitely be going back!

Food was excellent as usual. We had serf and turf; the serf was not visible and I could not taste it. Could it have
left off by the kitchen?

The menu is a bit pricey but it is certainly worth it. The meal was very good. The food was prepared well and was flavorful. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only negative thing I can think of is parking. The lot is somewhat small and it us difficult to get a spot.

Note to Embers: the purpose of a reservation is so that a table will be ready and waiting for you at the appointed time. If I wanted to sit and wait for 45 minutes, I'd just walk in. There are too many other fabulous places to eat in the area than to waste my time sitting in your foyer.

Two of our party ordered the rib eye steaks. One was to be grilled medium, the other medium rare. The medium came back almost well done, the medium rare came back medium. We were able to switch the one but had to wait for another medium rare.

This is the best of everything. Embers has great steaks and great sushi and great desserts. The Kobi roll is a great app and the steaks rival any in town. The top of the night are the oreos deep fried in donuts. Highly recommended.

I booked a private room for a business meeting with 7 participants. It was extremely cost effective and allowed us to have discussions with minimal interruption. The food and service were excellent.
I would highly recommend and will repeat for similar meetings.
