Best deal in town !!! – My friends and I have been eating at Embers for 20 years. I have had many parties, and occasions to celebrate at this great establishment. They have valet parking, and are very accommodating. The t-bone steak is wonderful, and so is the fried shrimp. Pasta, also. Try their cappucino; you have never had it like this anywhere else. They have a friendly atmosphere, and you may feel like you are in "Cheers" . The bartender makes a great drink. No skimping on the alcohol. Try his apple or chocolate martini...yum.
Terrible! – I had occasion to dine at the Embers Steakhouse last night with my Mother, an elderly, highly moral church-going woman. While the high priced food was OK, there was a table of 3 men seated behind me. They were very loud and beyond crass, swearing curse-words and discussing for example the uncontrollable bowel habits of their family dogs and the messes said dogs made, as well as cursing up a storm, while the wait-staff fawned all over them. There were children and other elderly nearby, and instead of anyone stepping up to these obnoxious diners, to ask them to keep it down, reduce the cursing, or expressing a plea for some well expected civility, the louder they got, the more ingratiating the staff seemed to be.
If this is in fact, the order of that place, they will never see me in there again! My Mother was upset and embarrassed, and it was a disgraceful display, with a seemingly unviligent and uncaring staff there. AVOID THIS PLACE UNLESS YOU ARE FOUL MOUTHED AND ARE COMFORTABLE IN SUCH A PLACE!
The price is great for their great steak as the neighborhood place...parking is tough – I've been in and out of this place for few years and I have never been disappointed with whatever I ordered.
Their porterhouse for 2....I can handle that on my own on a relaly hungry day. Always cooked to perfection and well seasoned.
The price is perfect for what you get. Taste like Peter Luger or other MORE expensive places.
But be really to wait in line for a table on the weekend and parking in that area is very tough. You will be very lucky if you can find something within 2 blocks
I brought a friend there once and then he became a regular. He's there like every other week,
Definitely recommend this place
Never Again! – Embers used to be a favorite of ours until we recentely had a special occasion dinner there. They squeezed our large party next to the kitchen, screwed up our appetizer order, was slow with our drinks, gave us too many coffees and not enough esspressos. On top of all that they charged us for too many drinks, supposedly slipped us Grey Goose Vodka in mixed drinks such as screwdrivers, and rang up our bill on other items that we couldn't disprove. Plus, we only had one server who was miserable. I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN!
Avoid Ember's Restaurant at all cost! Super expensive, below average food, and BU GS! – "DON"T!"
Food is horribly average and super duper overpriced! Expect to spend triple what an average upscale restaurant charges.
There was a co ckroa ch in my daughter's pasta! She was sick and ran to the bathroom to th row up!
They took her meal off the bill and gave us all free dessert and beverages as a make up for the ro ach.
The caesar salad was $9.95 and had a few pieces of lettuce with croutons. They gave 7 string beans with your $30 steak. 12 french fries. Yippee!
Bill was $312 for 10 people, and it was not even close to worth it.
Over rated, over priced – This place is really expensive. I have been here a few times and I am not impressed. Most dishes are at least $17. The portions are large at least, but that doesnt make up for the quality. The steak is fine. The chicken piccota (sp?) is good. It's a gamble I guess. For the amount of money you will end up spending, take a trip to the city. In NYC, there is no reason to pay a large sum of money for mediocre steak.
COLD STEAK, BAD SERVICE, RUDE WAITERS AND OWNER – Bay Ridge residents are disgusted with Embers!!! The steaks are served cold. When you complain they are rude and obnoxious. The waiters and the boss have cursed out and even threatened quite a few of my friends, aquaintences and neighbors. They think they're mobsters. The valet parkers triple park in front of the restaurant and somehow they get away with it. They must have very good connections to get away with their bad attitudes and service for so many years. Most people in Bay Ridge will not step foot in Embers. They know they deserve better than cold steak and abusive treatment. So if you have any dignity, avoid Embers!!!
rude, obnoxious – The owner Lou is a tyrrant. He is rude and he was very open in expressing it. My family and I went to the restaurant to celebrate a very important event. We called in advance and asked if we can bring our own wine. The answer was yes. When we arrived we brought several bottles of wine, champange and alcohol. We were promptly told that we can only use one bottle of wine. There was thirteen of us. We wanted to actually useone bottle of champagne. At that point the conversation turned into a "get out of here we don't need your business." He (Lou) went on a rampage and started cursuing in front a restaurant full of people. I would say he is unstable and rude and I would never go there ever again and would never reccommend it to any one.
fun place – took 10 people via limo to embers to satisfy a steak dinner bet among friends...ordered a couple of 64 oz. "T" bone steaks....lobster.... great appetizers..our first time there and lou and theresa the owners treated our group from south philly like we knew them for many years.....we are definitely going back....embers is a neighborhood restaurant and was recommended to us by a local who goes to all the new york steak houses and considers embers the best...if you go tell lou the gang from south philly sent you and we will be back with home made wine and soppressta.....
A Sunday in Bay Ridge – I went with 14 people to Embers mid afternoon on a Sunday....the place was empty and the waiters just hung out at the bar...ordering and waiting for the food took for ever
the food was good
I wonder why the service improved only when this place filled up
If I worked there I would be catering to a large group
