No wonder this restaurant has received so many soup awards. Passing through after a winter in southern Florida, we stopped for dinner. I had yummy crab bisque and an orange and blueberry salad with citrus dressing. Plus I devoured my husband's sweet potatoes with vanilla and bourbon. He merely had a grilled steak. I win. Two desserts and a salad.... More

This restaurant never disappoints. The food and service are excellent. Pricing for this quality of food is quite reasonable.

If you are looking for the perfect steak, this is the place to go. The service is a little slow and the meal is too costly for a casual dinner but the food is the best in town. Save this for a special occasion and you will not be disappointed.

Embers has the best quality of food in Gainesville and the air of adults only is great. A little pricey but worth it.

With a knowledgeable staff, an excellent wine list, and a creative chef, this restaurant is one of the few (about three really) excellent restaurants in this university city. The problem for us at oconnorart with most restaurants here is that they cater to students who generally have monster appetites and rarely appreciate either excellent food or wine. Well, Embers is...

We are finishing our meal, and we are quite impressed. The Short Ribs are Amazing! Also, the grilled Beefsteak Tomatoes were very tasty. My beautiful bride had the marinated sirloin and it was very good ad well. Very nice atmosphere and the service is superb. Must visit in Gainesville.
