I asked around for a great place to eat during a night out with family and this place was highly recommended. Now I know why. The food was great. We had prime rib that cut like butter, T-bone steak for two that was more than enough and that potatoe pie was delicious. Let me not forget the crab cakes. I could have made a meal out of that alone. I was told the service was good and I can honestly say they were great. The manager went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied and happy with our meal. He treated us as if he knew us for years. I've become a fan. I'll be back. Promise..........

Was a very big fan of Embers for many years. Great Brooklyn atmosphere and quality steakhouse fare at lower prices. Returned there recently to find that the restaurant had been sold and renovated. Was troubled by the change in decor, the restaurant had a much darker feel than the bright, boisterous look the restaurant previously had. The food was also very disappointing. An order of calimari was mushy. The steaks were overcooked, of a lower quality than in years past and served with a ridiculous side of creamed corn that looked like it appeared out of a can. Will not return.

Embers fianlly got it's much needed makeover! We have been frequenting over the course of many years and are glad to see the decor has left the 1980's. Now a simple decor with clean lines. The food on our visit over Labor Day weekend was on the money. I had a Tbone for one and my wife had the Lamb chops - all cooked to perfection. We had the ceasar salad and the rigatoni (special of the day) appetizers which were equally delicious. Service was good but a little slow - but the wait staff and management were all gracious. Pricing is about the same as a Manhattan restaurant but with such a good meal, we have no complaints.

Their food rocks. I like steak on my steak not sauce so this is the place for me and my family. If you don't like something you can always send it back although i've never had that problem. The staff is wonderful they treat you like family. I love Embers, will be there Saturday 8-20-11 with a party of 7 to celebrate my son's 21th bday.

Ate here a little while ago. While it wasn't bad, it was far from great - one steak ordered medium well and one ordered medium rare both came out the same (grey), and both cuts were tough. While the waitress was friendly, she was mostly absent. Even when we finally got her attention after ten minutes of arm waving, she kind of wasn't there...almost as if the decor had finally overwhelmed her and transported her back to the mid-eighties. The promise of "home-made" pie was also quite a disappointment; the pie may well have been assembled in the kitchen, but its component parts of cherry pie filling and freezer packed pastry were most definitely made somewhere far outside of Bay Ridge, and mostly likely not in someone's home. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for at Embers - food was edible and service manageable, but for a few extra bucks you could have much better (In the case of the pie, however, I am fairly certain you could pay less for something far closer to homemade - I've heard that you can get two for a dollar somewhere...if only I could remember where.

The best and most steak for your money. The T-bone falls off the plate it is so large. It comes for one or for two. Want fish? Salmon, fillet of sole or fried shrimp all wonderful. The best cappuccino anywhere !! It has chocolate in it! Oh the ssteak comes with potato pie (a family recipe) and a vegetable all for a great price. The staff and the owner all so friendly.
