"Very good, not quite great", as a previous post said

If I could, I'd give this a 3.5 out of 5. My dining partner and I both had the local Ohio Ribeye, which was encrusted with blue cheese and crab, along with macaroni and cheese and au gratin potatoes. Didn't really taste the blue cheese on my ribeye. The sides were decent enough, but it just... read more

I took my daughter, son in law and granddaughter for dinner - what a treat - BEST martini and STEAK I have had in Cincinnati - we'll be back - well worth the money and service was wonderful.

Located on the east side of town we eat at Embers whenever we're in town. It's pricey but I don't recall ever having a bad meal. Usually get the filet & salad although I also thought the fish was a good choice. Bar area gets crowded for happy hour but the dinner area is separate and very nice. Most folks... More

My daughter chose this place after my wife failed to make reservations at a preferred spot we like. Okay, it was her day so we went as she heard it was good. In short it was not worth the cost, food was unacceptable at any price, portions were ridiculously tiny and everything was bland. If you are rich or want... More

Wonderful meals enjoyed by all 12 in our group at Embers. The waitress seemed very concerned that she was providing great service. ( she was ). Great for and drinks were enjoyed by all. Especially the deserts.

My wife and I dined here for our anniversary. We knew going in that it would be pricey and that certainly was the case. The atmosphere is generally refined and subdued. Our waiter (Kurt?) was very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly - never stiff or overbearing. We started our meal with sushi (spicy tuna roll) which was $9.50. It took an... More

Customer recommended Embers for our dinner meeting. The experience was very good. Great room. Noise level allowed for normal conversation. Service was excellent. We started with a martini and shared the feature Sea Bass sushi roll. Wow! Great flavors. We asked and were advised that the Caesar salad was large enough to share. Again very fresh, very good. We both... More

I have dined in Ember's bar probably 15 times, and in the restaurant about 3 times. I have always found the bar food to be reasonably priced and tasty. The restaurant is overpriced and the food disappointing. My husband and I recently decided to try dinner in the restaurant one more time. We had a Sushi appetizer where the rice... More

The food, atmosphere, and service were great as always. Best surf and turf in town. Not to mention the sushi is top notch. Embers is in a class of its own. Pricey but worth it! Great for couples and groups.
