We went to the Embers to celebrate my daughter's PHd graduation from University of Florida. It was nicely decorated and comfortable. The service was excellent and the food fantastic. We had crab meat bisque. It was sooo rich, thick, and creamy. We had gator tail for an appetizer. It was served with remoulade sauce. They are crispy and delicious. We... More

Every time I have tried a meal here, it has been nothing short of delicious. The staff is very attentive, and everything happens in a timely fashion. This is a great place for special occasions, and special meals. I do hope we're able to eat here in the near future.

I have been wanting to write a review of my dinner with my wife at Ember's 3 weeks ago. We shared the coconut shrimp appetizer which was delicious. We both had the bone prime rib eye with side dishes of the mushrooms and asparagus. The steak was cooked to perfection and it was very flavorful and extremely tender. One of... More

If you are looking for a nice restaurant with great ambiance and really good food, this is the place for you. They also have seating outside by a a beautiful fountain which I highly recommend when the weather is nice. Service was excellent, food was well prepared, and a good time was had by all.

A group of us went to Embers pre-theatre. We informed the staff that we had to be on a shuttle by a certain time in order to make the show. They could not have been more helpful...keeping the food flowing (even with all the special orders), and making sure that we knew when our shuttle arrived. The food was excellent,... More

We chose Embers based on other reviews and recommendations by locals. My son is a senior at UF and we are celebrating Thanksgiving with him this year and decided to have a special dinner out. We went to Embers on a Tuesday evening, with a 7:30 reservation for 4 adults. Service: at first the service was a bit spotty. The... More

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
