Went here to celebrate my birthday. Food was excellent and well-prepared, service good, and the ambience was nice without being stuffy. People were on dates, celebrating anniversaries, there was a faculty interview, and even a couple of family parties, so a wide variety of clientele. It is definitely a bit of a splurge meal - both calorically and cost-wise -... More

If you have a big birthday or promotion or just want to celebrate life, this is the place to do it! Don't be fooled by its modest outward appearance in the land of strip malls and student apartments, Inside it is sheer elegance, great service, and the best steaks in town. It's expensive by Gainesville standards, but it's the best.

Embers is that special place to go to if you are searching a good meal in town. It is a very versatile menu that caters not just to meat eaters but other things as well. Vegetarians can have a delicious meal from all the side dishes and salads available. Embers is also great for private functions. I have organized a... More

I hadn't been to Embers in a very long time. I remembered when I did go I had LOVED their pork chops. I decided to take a friend who was new to the Gainesville area. I was immediately disappointed in that they did not have the pork chops anymore, just pork medallions which I was not excited about. There was... More

There were 6 of us for dinner. The service, menu selection and quality of the food is excellent. We have eaten here in the past and were happy to be able to get a reservation on short notice. I try to eat here whenever in Gainesville, it's that good.

Embers is our go to place for anniversary and birthday meals. Nothing is cheap but everything is really exceptional. I like bone in cowboy ribeye with the lobster mash potatoes and the sautéed spinach. My wife often orders the lamb or the braised short ribs. I also often order the beefsteak tomatoes w mozzarella which is so good but the... More
