Have dined here three times. The service has been excellent and my entrees were virtually flawless. Each time our waiter exceeded reasonable expectations to ensure our satisfaction.

First, it's a steak house and the steaks are amazing. On par with all the other high end steak houses. Where I find them unique are dishes other than steaks. The italian beef short ribs are fantastic, they have a great bourbon selection, and the lemon cake for dessert was so good we ordered an entire one for my Mom's... More

Food is exceptional and the environment is nice and romantic. Not an everyday place because of the pricing, but perfect for a special occasion.

Filet was cooked beautifully, could cut it with a fork. The lobster mashed potatoes were delish. Asparagus was just right. Best meal out anywhere!!! You won't be disappointed in the quality of the food for the price you've paid.

Great service! Absolutely the best steak I've ever had. Highest recommendation! The asparagus was excellent. The potato dish to die for and the ambience was excellent.

As always, the food and the service was exceptional. Chef Briton Dumas and his staff have created one of the finest dining experiences of any restaurant I've ever been to. To find something like this in such a small town is a real treat.

Excellent in all respects. Food, wine selection, atmosphere and service. The bar can make almost any drink imaginable and they are good. Waitstaff are knowledgeable and friendly.

Consistently a wonderful meal. With Embers you have a more traditional steakhouse experience. Yet there is so much variety on the menu that you could order something different each time. We also love going to spark for a more casual experience, but the food is equally wonderful. Love going back again and again and never get tired of it.

From the outside you would not guess that they're is a top notch steak joint inside. Nice atmosphere, great service, and terrific food. Good wine selection as well. The nicest place I have eaten in Gainesville

Thank Nathan B
