Beautiful place / Great Service

Wow an elegant yet relaxed and fun place. We ate at the bar on a weekday and the service was great! Super wine selection and really good food. The Kobe steak was a bit small but good. Cooked a bit fast as the exterior was tough via overcooking which was a shame on such a piece. The Buffalo... read more

This was the fourth time I've eaten at Ember and I love this place. The atmosphere is typical steakhouse, which is good. There was live entertainment that was subtle and surprisingly good. But, the food is why I go there. The seared foie gras with huckleberry sauce is awesome and highly recommended. The crab cocktail is also recommended as an... More

We eat here once on every visit, at least twenty times and have never been impressed with our meals. The service is outstanding along with the appetizers but I have never had a steak (Filet) here to actually rave about. Our meals are always comped or I would never order another steak in this place.

Very nice steakhouse! This is a quiet oasis in a noisy casino! Loved the rustic decor! Our food was delicious! Shrimp and Grits, a Braised Short a Ribs, and Filet Mignon were all nicely prepared....as were our desserts! The Blueberry Donuts were our favorites!

Again tone of the best steaks I have eaten. Always cooked just right. The staff very formal and exceptionally nice. Glad that you don't have to dress formal. Blue jeans just fine and nice shirt....I like that

I had a group dinner here and we ordered a couple of seafood tower and beacon wrapped shrimp appetizers. Pricey but tasted wonderful. I had sesame crusted tuna, cooked to medium rare, just right. The only thing is that it was a little light of seasoning to my taste. Wine was good also.

The lamb appetizer is excellent. And the steaks, and macaroni, and the asparagus. The service is excellent. Everything there better be excellent as much as it costs. The wine selection is excellent. The beer selection is horrid. Really? A great big place like a casino and the "pub draft Guinness" beer comes to the table in a can. Yes it... More

A large group enjoyed dinner here. The menu ha a variety of options. It is an a la carte menu, but is very good. The appetizers are wonderful. Steaks are well seasoned and prepared. Seafood is also very good. Be sure to try the rabbit. Good wine menu! Service was very good.
