We travel through Gainesville twice a year and always dine at Embers. It is always outstanding, but tonight it was amazing. The waitstaff is friendly and professional, subdued atmosphere and stellar food. Our fillets tonight were like butter; I mentioned to our server that I...More

Very nice restaurant. A little bit formal and good service. From outside you can not judge if it is good or not. Go and try you will like it. The parking lot is limited.

To be truthful, Bob, I can't remember. My son and I went there after a long, long day of apartment hunting, and we were thankful that they could fit us in without reservations. I believe they have an online menu. If I... More
