We had a lovely meal served very quickly. For the entree we asked for extra toast with the Patte and it was provided with a smile. The main course of Chicken Supreme was at our table within 10 minutes and the sauce included was delicious. For desert we had the Apple crumble served perfectly hot with amazing ice-cream...thanks for a wonderful meal!

I booked a dinner for my family for my wife's birthday one month in advance. I mentioned this special occasion when I made my reservation, I also requested a highchair. Embers made no acknowledgment to her birthday and did not provide a highchair when we arrived. The food was good, not great.

Have a lovely evening and the staff were exceptional. However we all thought the menu lacked options with not a lot appealing to any of our group therefore we ended up with pizza, steak sandwich and a entree as a main between the 4 of us.

Service was very disappointing, all night we had to wait while the staff cleaned tables and prepped for the next day. Then mains of any substance like duck and steak were “sold out” as they needed to save it for the next day. The eye roll when paying the bill at the tip amount was the final straw. Thanks for experience on our special night.

It was a lovely spot and we sat next to the fire. Dinner and drinks were fabulous as well as the service. I suggest that people are not allowed to burn marshmallows next to the tables on each side of the fireplace as it is quite inconvenient and even dangerous (specially with kids involved)

I had a 5pm booking for dinner with my toddler and was looking forward to it as it was my birthday and was travelling solo as my husband was overseas. The waitress was very friendly. I ordered a starter, an entree, and a kids meal, as well as a martini. I told the waitress I didn't want to push my luck with my toddler staying in a good mood so was happy for all the food to come at the same time, which it did about 5 minutes later. It was unceremoniously plonked on my table, with the kids ham/cheese toastie put right in front of me, rather than one of the dishes I ordered for myself. I did the rearranging of plates myself as the waiter (not the waitress who had been serving me) had walked away. I started eating the scallops, which were delicious, but realised I still hadn't received my drink. I waved to the waitress and she said it was on it's way. 2 or 3 mins later, it arrived. I was by that point a bit annoyed and didn't have the energy to send the drink back, but it was cloudy yellow and tasted like it had been shaken up with lemon juice (all I asked for was a gin martini with a twist of lemon). And the goats cheese/tomato starter was the size of a main meal with what looked like about 5 whole tomatoes smashed up on top. The tomatoes tasted old and floury. We were there a total of 40 mins. I found out a couple of days later when I returned home that my Mum had phoned the Fairmont that day and advised them she wanted to pay for my dinner and that a glass of champagne was to be delivered to my table as soon as I sat down. (you don't turn 40 every day, so she was trying to make it a special night for me). I didn't get that champagne and wasn't told she was paying for the meal. What should have been special, was really extremely ordinary. At least I had a nice plate of sweets delivered to my room later on which I assume was compliments of the hotel. Apart from that, I had a great stay at the Fairmont and hope to return sometime soon, but may choose to dine elsewhere.

People who attended to us were friendly and accommodating. The place is in a very good location for sceneries and view of Blue Mountains.

As a local tour operator, I recommended Embers Restaurant to my tour guests from Japan visiting the Blue Mountains for two days. I pre-booked them for lunch before they had even arrived. Feedback yesterday is that the food was excellent, beyond their expectations, top service and with the rainy weather outside closing in, a perfect cosy indulgence for them. Respecting their privacy, of course I didn't ask what they paid but there were no complaints. Price was not their priority. I clicked one star because it required a mandatory answer. Thank you for shining, Fairmont. Steve

Each dish was a taste sensation of its own. Had the pork belly and lamb backstrap for our entree- both cooked and garnished to perfection. Main- we shared the huge sirloin med/rare with a side of broccolini. Superb . A complimentary Happy Birthday desert plate arrived unexpectedly- not enough space here to even begin to describe this masterpiece of sheer decadence and indulgence!

Unfortunately our experience was not a very pleasant one. I booked to have lunch at Embers Bar for my husbands 30th birthday. I had pre booked and received an email confirmation. Upon arriving I was told by the staff at the entrance to the restaurant that I didn't have a booking and they didn't know anything about my reservation. We were made feel like a nuisance. It took 10 minutes or so to arrange a table for us. We were then made wait 30 or so minutes before anyone took our order. Our hot chocolates were cold, and when i made mention of this, again we were made feel as though we weren't welcome and a nuisance. Overall very disappointing experience, especially when it was for my husbands 30th birthday.

My family and I had a lovely time at Embers celebrating my 40th birthday and two other family members birthdays. The restaurant is warm and cosy with a lovely atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. We did however have to wait 25 minutes for our table to be ready and then wait an additional 15 minutes because our order was taken which meant for a 8pm reservation we didn't start eating until after 9pm!! Not great when you have a table of hungry people. The 'busy period' needs to be managed better so that all customers are taken care of.

Food was outstanding. Great variety for a family as there was lovely ‘fancy’ food for the grown ups and burgers for the kids so everyone was happy. We celebrated a birthday and a sparkler was added with no fuss. Great selection of wine. All service provided was warm, friendly and engaging. Recommendations/suggestions were all spot on as well. Thanks for a really lovely evening.

Great service and beautiful atmosphere. The food was perhaps a little overpriced, but with the Accor card was fine.

We would have given higher ratings, particularly for service, except that for one of our dinners (which had been booked several weeks in advance) our reservation was moved from 7:30pm to 6pm with only an email notification on the day. To have our reservation brought forward by 90 minutes without even a call to explain and ask if it was ok, particularly when the original reservation had been made several weeks beforehand and had been confirmed the day before, was extremely inconvenient and seemed out of step with the otherwise lovely service we had received.
