Nice.

Was little pricey but the restaurant has a nice clean feel to it. Very loud but maybe it was the people around us? The music? Once they left it was less noisy and we could actually hear eachother. Server wasn't friendly at all. Mac and cheese is FLIPPIN FANTASTIC!!!! Caesar salad was good... read more

Didn't know what to expect, but trusted staff at Best Western Sonora(great place also). Day 14 on 18 day Cali trip and this place is in top 3 best meals and experiences. Staff are great, Sarah and Keeley, with food being just amazing. From a Southern fried chicken sandwich the massive tomahawk steak to the pizza. We just loved this... More

food was good, but wasn't told of the dining room, listened to sad stories for bar spoken too loud, waitress could have cared less-not for me

So, so great! The three of us had a hamburger, fish and chips, and wings. The vinergerette salad dressing had an amazing flavor. Nothing disappointed. The meal was fabulous. Nicest waitress and fun atmosphere. We would return again and again...but we are from Indiana and won't have the pleasure. The best thing I can do is give this good review... More

The wings are baked in the wood-fired oven first and then deep fried. These are the best wings I have ever tasted. Really amazing. I also highly recommend the local apricot beer.

Just a nice place to sit at the bar and visit with the locals or have a bite to eat. This is one of the more upscale places where the locals go. We had the pizza and would rate it a solid four stars.

Emberz was recommended by our hotel and did not disappoint. We both had the burgers and were very nice. Cool atmosphere as they had. Band playing in the front. Really enjoyed.

restaurant had great atmosphere and was convenient. We arrived an hour before the kitchen closed because our hotel manager said they had great wood fired pizza. Our pizza was served burnt (on the edge and bottom). When we asked if they could bring another one we were told the kitchen was closed but she would take something off the price.... More

We probably would have been much happier in sticking with the tried and true staple--pizza, what with a wood fired oven ( always a plus) and a good pizza track record. But Emberz had locally advertised that there were more entree items on the menu, and diners just inside the window caught our eye with the Flinstone -like whole rib... More
