A great special occasion restaurant or a place to go when you just want to sit back. relax and enjoy a very good meal. The wine list is extensive so there is no problem finding an appropriate compliment to the food. The crab bisque is one of their signature dishes and well worth that designation. It was full of very... More

The food is excellent here, or at least some of the best you'll find in Gainesville, which is why you will find it packed on a Monday night. The service is great when you start your meal, but as you get your entree, the service falls off without fail. It also seems to have a serious identity crisis with it's... More

My family and I visited Embers on a Saturday night. The service from beginning to end was excellent, the atmosphere was pleasant, and the food was great . I compare this restaurant to Flemmings or Ruth Chris but at much better price. We will definitely visit again.

Subtle, dark tones and a relaxing atmosphere make Embers’ a perfect date place. A wood-fire grill turns out everything from tasty flatbreads to succulent prime steaks, and the sea bass and shrimp are tender and served with sides that are just as interesting. The side bar called Spark is a more casual but just as tasteful experience with a charcuterie... More

This is not a chain steakhouse, which is probably why it is so good. We ordered steak and leg of lamb and both were excellent. There's a large selection of side dishes, which were also good.

This is a great place for special celebration, or just a great meal. The bar has smaller meals. The main dinning area can be noisier than the other area.

We found Embers on a dining app and we weren't disappointed. We ordered the filet, the braised ribs, and a fish dish. The restaurant isn't too noisy and is just dim enough to feel intimate...without losing our sight. Wait service was prompt and frequent. Water was refilled regularly. Price was right and food was tasty. Would come back.

Thank Skiveez
