We ate here while on a trip, and found it to be such an interesting experience that on the way back a week later we bypassed the other highly-recommended restaurants so we could enjoy it for a second time. The servers were both very charming, and there is the feeling that the place is operated with enthusiasm. The kangaroo was a new experience for me, unusual and very good.

After reading reviews and receiving recommendations we made reservations for dinner and were pleased we did. We thought the atmosphere was very inviting and encouraged lingering over a meal. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu selections. The menu is not large but offers a unique selection that includes kangaroo and other more exotic meats. Many of the products are locally sourced which we like. We chose a Carpaccio appetizer to share and were amazed at the size of the portion and the fantastic taste. Fresh, clean and adorned with perfect micro greens. I chose the ribs with a dry rub and my husband had a steak. Both were cooked to perfection and had a nice presentation. Wonderful restaurant that I would highly recommend. While there, we had the pleasure of striking up a conversation with 2 gentlemen seated next to us visiting from England. It was like the toping on the cake. Hello to you both!

Although very well rated on Trip Advisor, and our motivation for going there, we found everything to be just okay. The rib meal seemed like it had been pre-cooked and just warmed prior to serving. While the catfish dish was short on the fish portion, when the concern was made known they adjusted the price and that was a plus. Service was satisfactory. Overall, Embers does not measure up to Arturo's.

Very small and upscale grill. Downtown mixed in with shops and other retailers. the menu was very unique, including kangaroo and water buffalo. We stuck with the more normal fair but prepared in unique ways.

Great atmosphere, in a perfect downtown location.
The food is exceptional, with service to match.
Love that they have locally grown food options, along with one of a kind menu items.
