We were a party of 13. The waiter started out excellently describing the specials for the night with experience. Everything seems like the same old wonderful Embers and that is where everything changed. I ordered the stuffed chicken and my husband ordered the duck. (he...More

This restaurant has the best grilled Vegetables we have ever had. Our Steak, Salmon and Duck breast have been great as well but the portobello mushroom and the aspargus were incredible.

Ambience and service were great. Very nice wine list and the food was good, but not great. It was probably the nicest steak house in Gainesville, but it doesn't compare to higher-end steakhouses in larger cities.

The ambiance and service were excellent. The arugula salad was excellent as was the filet. The duck was a bit bland, but overall the food was good.

On a recent business trip to Gainesville, our party of 12 chose Embers for dinner. Assuming that all are TripAdvisor reviewers, Embers will earn 12 new 5-star ratings. My NY strip steak was a perfectly-prepared medium rare--one of the best slabs of beef that I...More

I have taken a number of international visitors to Embers for dinner several occasions. Moderately priced, great menu, and delicious food. Great service.

Met up with my coworker that I hadn't talk to for a few months. We had a wonderful time. Nice evening ambiance. Service was nice and efficient. Good selections on their menu. Nice place to eat for social gatherings.

Embers was once our favorite place to go for special occasions or just when we wanted high quality food. This last year has been disappointing. Meals were not prepared as ordered or with the care and detail that we have experienced in the past. Good...More

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
