Live in the area and have never checked out the restaurant. It was restaurant week so $38 for a three course meal. Service was not great, very nice waiter but struggled to keep up, our entrees ended up coming out before our apps. And our desserts definitely spent some time waiting to be brought out. Food was very good however and we weren’t in a hurry so it didn’t matter to us. Wine selection is solid but red wines aren’t chilled at all so some normally solid wines struggled a bit at 70 degrees. All in all we would go back and hope for better service.

The menu was quite limited and seemed to be, well, fancied up. The server, Abraham, was at times attentive, at times forgetful, and at times no where to be found. Ambiance was quite nice.
We arrived early because of what we had read about slow service, and we were seated early because the restaurant was less than half full. If we had waited until our 6:30 reservation, when the restaurant was much busier, we would have likely been late for the play.

Arrived at 5:30. Had theater tickets for 8PM in the same complex. Was greeted by our waiter and ordered drinks. When drinks arrived, we order appetizers that were brought by servers.it was at least a half hour later that the waiter came to take our entree order. Again the food was brought out by servers. The waiter never checked on us or took additional drink orders. After our entrees we would have had dessert and coffee, but no one ever game to our table. Finally at 7:35 percent waved him down and all he said was I’ll get your checks. He returned and we paid and left. All that the time we spent there ( over two hours ) and we ran out of time to finish the meal . Totally unacceptable. By the way. The food was delicious. The service was terrible.

Food so.good it's hard to believe the service was so horrible. From the hostess to the servers, the best description would be curt, one notch above rude.
It was part of our package, so we really couldn't complain. But to deal with poor service is not something I would have expected at a Marriott location.

Excellent dishes and unique combinations of sides. We had beet salad and a warm octopus appetizers. Lamb shank was very good and tender. Scallops w sauce and sides was excellent. You get the quality of Marriott chefs. Large cintemporary restaurant so you can get in.

I might have given this 5 star. The scallops are always delicious! But the chicken was so dry! The pomegranate sauce and sweet potato purée were 5 star, but the chicken was not. Not a big fan of how close the tables are. We had a lovely conversation with our neighbors but it’s just a little too close. We do love coming here after our show. The value goes up to 5 stars because of our 25 per cent discount! Old fashioned was a great drink.

Food was fantastic, but service wasn’t. They are in desperate need of people busing tables. Long after people left tables, dirty dishes just sat on the tables. The waitstaff is stretched thin so drink refills or asking how things have come out is nonexistent. Again, good is fantastic...they need to get service together.

Three Embers was fine. The only problem was that they did not have my reservation that I made on "Open Table". Next time I will make the reservation directly and not rely on Open Table.

The woman who makes the omelets is amazing. Our servers overall, and we go several times a year, are a bit unattentive. We know this is because they get an automatic 20% tip when we are really doing our
own serving at the buffet. Difficult to get a glass of juice and coffee is put down in the beginning in a pot. we do not feel the service is worth the $5 per person chip and we are there for 1 hour and serving our own selves at the buffet.

We went to Three Embers right after seeing Oliver at the theater - this was quite possibly the best lamb shank I have ever had. It was in an "open" area in the hotel so not an intimate setting at all; the bar next to the restaurant was pretty loud so that was a bit more than we expected however the quality of the food made up for it - I would honestly say that this was better than Wildfire but also a bit more expensive overall. Limited menu

We always go to Three Embers for dinner after a play at the Marriott Lincolnshire Theatre. The food is very good and the menu is varied and changed frequently enough that we don't mind going after each of the 5 plays put on each season.

This was my second time at this restaurant as I always go to Websters. Thought the dinner should be special as it was the holidays. The first time I was there was one year ago. The chef could not get a filet medium. I sent my steak back twice. This time, the food was good however the waiter was pretty non existent, and the hostess was less than friendly. My friend and I plan on dining at the restaurants since we are theater goers. I think I would not go back to Three Embers ever and would continue with Wrights I didn't think the cost was worth the value.

We usually enjoy our meal. However, this evening was a bit disappointing. Once again, the chef seemed to be heavy handed with the salt. A little goes a long way. Also, the pasta dish, pumpkin ravioli, was more of an appetizer than an entree. The person who ordered left the table hungry and she is quite petite. The brisket was a disaster. It looked beautiful, but, upon cutting into the large piece of meat (it was not cut into strips), it turned out to be a solid hunk of fat. The texture was very off-putting. The sea scallops were very good. One of our party ordered desert, the chocolate brownie. It was not only stunning, but it was delicious too. So, Three Embers, you really need to step up your game in the entree department. Also, some additional staff would be helpful. We had 5:00 reservations and barely made it to the theater on time. 2 1/2 hours should be sufficient...and then some.
