We have never had a bad experience at Embers. It's in our neighborhood and we go there 2-3 times a year for special occasions. My steak is always cooked to order (medium) and the service is great. My favorite is a filet with the brussels sprouts and cheesy potatoes. We tried the duck fat fries at the suggestion of our... More

Our preference is usually a Jeff Ruby restuarant, but we purchased a Groupon promotion for this restaurant and decided to take a chance to celebrate our anniversary. What a pleasant surprise! The food was excellent and the service was even better. The restaurant was extremely busy, but our waiter was very attentive and accommodating (even though we had the Groupon... More

Probably my fault for not sending my steak back but it was over-cooked and tasteless. A true disappointment. The waiter spilled a glass of water on me and my wife's coat. An apology from the waiter but nothing more.

Fantastic food, beverages, and service. Yes, it can be a little pricy, but if you're celebrating a special event, you won't find a better place to do it than Embers.

My wife and I have been 5 times and never left disappointed. The chef's special sushi and the eclectic drink menu are always a hit.

Have been to Embers perhaps a dozen times, mostly with friends for dinner and drinks. It has never disappointed and often surprised. Steaks are great and done to perfection.

We had been to Embers before, but only for their happy hour. What a mistake that was! My wife and I went there for dinner tonight, and to be honest we had such a wonderful time that we talked about it all the way home. Our server, Robert, was just great, he explained the specials in detail; in fact he... More

Went to Embers for Mother's Day 2013 and was pleasantly surprised. The outside of the restaurant is nothing fancy to look at but the inside is very nicely decorated. The wait staff was excellent and very nice. The drinks from the bar were awesome. The main course was very good. I had the 8oz filet mignon cooked medium rare and... More

Perhaps this is one of those restaurants where regulars get all the attention, perhaps simply the fact that we were seated next to a very well-known and moneyed Cincinnati family, or perhaps because we did not order any alcohol, but we had a real disconnect while enjoying our Saturday evening dinner at this restaurant. The food was very good; I... More
