Touted as one of Summerlin’s best restaurants, Embers Grille + Spirits delivers a wonderful MyVegas Magazine experience.
Nestled in Boca Park, Embers is contemporary and relaxed, featuring a warm palate of dark hardwoods, flagstone walls and high ceilings that are complimented by an open-air patio. We dined there one recent Sunday evening, enjoying the outdoor patio space. As our desert temperatures climb, it is important to note the patio was shaded and offered calming effects as we were lulled by the sounds of the nearby fountain.
The service was delivered in a team approach. May, who hails from Hawaii, served as our hostess ensuring all our needs were met. Our group was in agreement that Elgin might be one of the best servers we have ever encountered. The descriptive terms he used to interpret the menu were reminiscent of listening to a story. Elgin is an artist with his words, making each dish sound more enticing than the last. Steve, a Las Vegas native, supported the team and is a seasoned service professional. Needless to say, the team helped to make our dining experience at Embers more than enjoyable. They made it fun!
Embers’ fusion menu offers a unique and modern take on classic American cuisine.Our meal started with various selections from their Fresh Beginnings menu. The Bacon Wrapped Dates, stuffed with toasted almonds and finished with a pomegranate reduction,are an Embers signature. The vegetarian in our group selected the Mushroom, Spinach and Parmesan flatbread with Truffle Oil offering the perfect touch. The Tempura Rock Shrimp Mistowith avocado and red Fresno peppers was a group favorite.
Our dinner selections included the Pan-Roasted Chilean Sea Bass, whichis fresh daily and served in a bowl of saffron butter sauce with chorizo, red potatoes, zucchini and squash. The Pan Roasted Herb Chicken was cooked and seasoned to perfection and served with a delectable French bread pudding, glazed Brussels sprouts and cranberry demi. The beef selection, an eight-ounce filet and the Blackened Prime Flat Iron Steak, was equally delicious. For dessert the Warm Chocolate Cake was worth every minute of the twenty minute baking time.
Known for their classic, vintage cocktails, Embers offers a diverse nightlife experience.Their global approach to wine is clearly evident as they offer a wide range of styles and flavors. Embers provides an eclectic selection of spirits and beers to please even the most distinguishable beverage connoisseur.
All in all, their food, wine, beer, cocktails and atmosphere make for an excellent experience at very moderate and competitive prices!
