Great value for quality dining. I have never experienced a dish that I did not enjoy. Service is top notch. If any area lacking it would be in the desert selection I feel it could be larger.

Dinner at Embers. A little on the pricey side. We started with Fois Gras. Delicious. We also had salads and steaks. As might be expected the steaks were stellar. The salads were fresh with colorful ingredients. The crowd is old and the atmosphere is not that great. The music is old people style. However, no complaints about the quality of... More

Hubby and I spent a week here and explored many steakhouses. This is #1. The ambience, the servers, the food, all go towards top grade. It's expensive but worth it. The 20 oz bone-in ribeye is $48 and yes it includes two sides, but still ..... do you want a high quality steak experience? Then this is it.

My wife and I have been twice and both times were impressed by the food, staff, and general ambiance. I personally recommend whatever cut of beef you're feeling in the mood for, while my wife is vegetarian and still had a great time. There is a grilled veggie stack (actually vegan!) that was pretty good. Additionally, there are some great... More

Atmosphere was lovely, we could actually talk to each other & not be drowned out by a neighboring table. Our waiter was extremely helpful & right on top of things. Coming from South Florida, we found the the food fine, nothing extraordinary, and prices a bit high.

The food was wonderful, the service was perfect, the atmosphere was everything we had hoped for ....... but the prices were so hiked up for graduation weekend it was ridiculous. We were very caught off guard to find the same menu item jacked up $12-14 per entree just because it was graduation weekend. We had not been told the menu... More

Everything was perfect. Just drove all the way from NOLA to Gainesville and wanted/needed a really good dinner; no chain restaurant. Found this gem. Super, creative menu and delicious cuisine. Top notch steakhouse, however my wife and I weren't in the mood for steak. No problem, wonderful other choices. We left very happy and satisfied.

I ate at Embers for the second time recently about three weeks ago. There were three of us for dinner. My immediately previous visit, we were a table of 8. On both occasions I age quite well as did all of my dining companions. First, it is in a strip-mall type location. That is typical of Gainesville. We are a... More
