This is probably the top five fancy restaurant in gainesville. The food is generate, and everything you would except from a steak house. The service was good and probably the best you will get in this town. The parking sucks.

Embers is my very favorite restaurant in Gainesville- they have excellent and friendly owners, very professional wait staff, extensive and tasty wine menu, and a great atmosphere. They have the best steak and seafood in town, in my opinion.

Yes each entrée comes with one side. The lobster mashed potatoes were excellent!

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
