Large shared portions and tasty presentation

I had lunch here this past week with my mom and brother. My mom tried the Reuben sliders, my brother had the chicken saltimbocca, and I had a great blue cheese with bacon burger with a side salad with Sri Racha blue cheese dressing. Yum.

Great little place. Great service and the tomahawk Steak was amazing. We shared and still have a lot to take home. Great eye appeal.

Great wings and the coffee is freshly pressed but I found the personalities of the staff members to be rather dry and boring. Not much to say and not very engaging with conversation as you would expect with bar staff. Once you are finished with the food no reason to stay for another one. Later ....

Not expecting to find a place like this in downtown Sonora. Great atmosphere and there was a live band the night we went. Tasty Moscow mules also! Food was delicious as well

Casual dining plus a bar. Cozy. Located at the entrance to the Old Downtown on So. Washington Street. Parking on street. Open for lunch and dinner, I believe. Menu has appetizers, pizza, burgers, salads, fish n chips. pasta, chicken, and sliders. I guess my biggest disappointment was the inattentive server. Next were the overly salty sweet potato fries; they had... More

Emberz is a good "girl's night out" or date night place. They have music, really good food. Sometimes, if they are really busy, it can be a bit slow. Pricey for taking the family. Nice place to go "after hours." Classy.

Have eaten at Emberz multiple times. Food usually great. This time not so much. Ordered a burger, got sick not too long after meal. Not going back.

My husband and I wanted a good burger so we chose the Emberz. We had the B.S. burger. It's just a burger and a bun, but you can have it all for a dollar more. Thick and juicy! We enjoyed it. Would go back when we are there.

Brussells sprouts in California?! The meals were nice enough; comfort food given fancy names but fairly straightforward presentation and good taste. The seats in the booth we had were sagging and uncomfortable, and the decor was unispired. The redeeming feature for us was the table service. The young lady looking after us was pleasant, chirpy and helpful and made it... More
