No wonder this restaurant has received so many soup awards. Passing through after a winter in southern Florida, we stopped for dinner. I had yummy crab bisque and an orange and blueberry salad with citrus dressing. Plus I devoured my husband's sweet potatoes with vanilla and bourbon. He merely had a grilled steak. I win. Two desserts and a salad. Who could ask for more?

This restaurant never disappoints. The food and service are excellent. Pricing for this quality of food is quite reasonable.

I really thought the Embers was going to be outrageous but I was disappointed. Sorry
The sweet potatoes were tasty but cold, the waitress brought be new ones but after the first bite they were cold also. The short ribs were tasty but more than 1/2 was fat. My hubby enjoyed his shrimp and scallops. The bread was good

I would not rate this place excellent by no means. The Italian restaurant Francesca's is way better than Embers

If you are looking for the perfect steak, this is the place to go. The service is a little slow and the meal is too costly for a casual dinner but the food is the best in town. Save this for a special occasion and you will not be disappointed.
