Went here for a birthday dinner for my mother-in-law. Nothing over the top but good solid food and service all around.

Really very good and relatively inexpensive restaurant with great beef. The crab soup is hyped a little too much in reviews. It is good but not Great. The beef is excellent as is the snapper

We took a birthday occasion Iand made it into a fantastic event. Randy was over-the-top as a server gave a new meaning to the word of service.

Stonewood Tavern was always our go-to restaurant for special occasions. When the Gainesville location closed we had to find a new higher end restaurant for those special times. It's surprising how limited the selection is in this town. Embers fit the bill in many ways, but also could use help in a few areas. *The first issue we ran into... More

If you are looking for a big meal, you are not at the right place. You will however enjoy every tasty creation. Make sure you make reservations.

Okay, so the outside is a lot like Strip Mall with the facade being less than the Food and decor inside! This place has great wait staff and the Veal is very good! The Lobster Mac in cheese is always a favorite! Now for dessert! Its all good... BUT, you gotta have the Hot Toll-house Cookies and Ice Cold Milk!... More

The service is excellent and the food is top notch. You are definitely dinning at Embers. You are never rushed and the servers are very helpful polite and accommodating . A must go to restaurant.

The salmon was good, the steak was good, the sweet potato side tasted like a dessert it was so sweet, the service was a little forced but okay. The kicker was a charge for sauce for the steak. The sauces are listed on the menu (with no dollar amount next to them). There was a charge on my bill. I... More

The Embers puts on a major effort to be a first-class restaurant, but misses in several vital areas. The room was overly-chilled, which can be as annoying as being too hot. The elevator music was intermittent. The presentation of the evening specials by the waitstaff was elegant if a bit over the top. The steak was very good, and the... More

We called about 30 minutes before arriving and told them we were passing through on our 38th anniversary and would like to have dinner based on the "TripAdvisor" reviews. As we arrived - we were greeted with a personal welcome - seated - and promptly brought glasses of champagne in honor of our anniversary! Ok, NICE start. We ordered grilled... More
