Went here for our 10th anniversary. Food and service was some of the best I have ever experienced. Very extensive wine list.

Love the food but bathroom should be cleaner and menu should not be put on plates and silver--let us pay more attention to sanitation.

Starting the evening with hostess Caitlin and Jacob as a server, was just the beginning of great things to come. Food was amazing, cooked to perfection and just the right seasoning. Atmosphere A+. No rush, no chasing servers and very knowledgeable staff. Could not ask for anything better.

Ember's is by far the best steakhouse in Gainesville. The steaks are always grilled to perfection and the sides are excellent - try the truffle Mac and Cheese and you will not be disappointed. Unless you don't like truffles. Or mac and cheese.

I'm in Gainesville for business and found this gem on TripAdvisor. Well my goodness, the reviews are spot on! I had escargot for an appetizer which was superb and then my meal was a 6oz filet mignon, lobster mashed potatoes (OMG) and sautéed mushrooms. Simply outstanding! When I arrived I was not dressed as upscale as I felt I should... More

Our dinners of the Diver Sea Scallops with sides of Vanilla Mashed Sweet Potatoes with bourbon and sautéed spinach were very good. Large scallops. The grouper was... More

A consistently excellent steak and seafood restaurant with a fine dining experience. Great wine list and bar. The bar area is nice and offers an abbreviated menu with snacks to main dishes available. Never disappoints.

Thank Gators-on-the-go
