A word from Amber Rose
The Amber Rose is an Eastern European restaurant specializing in homemade German, Polish, Hungarian, Russian and Italian cuisines. The bar is made of Turkish marble. The beer and wine lists consist of exemplary, hard-to-find European beverages. The dining room seats 88 guests, while the spacious banquet room “upstairs” can privately accommodate 110. The building is located in the heart of Old North Dayton, where Europeans migrated during and after World War I.Continued

  • "1. Beautiful building 2. Supports local brewery 3. Expert staff welcoming, friendly and flexible 4. Amazing food, complete palate experience 5. Reasonably priced I have wanted to check out the Amber Rose for years, wish I had done so sooner! Perfect spot to follow up with a Dragons Game or Schuster Center Concert."

  • "We chose Amber Rose because two of the six in our party are cabbage roll lovers. They were not disappointed. The pot roast was quite good too. And the bread pudding with almonds and cherries was to die for! Yum."

  • "My co-workers and I decided to go to Amber Rose, we've all been there before. It's in a great building, lots of character. The service was fantastic and the food was very good. One had the pot roast and two had the cabbage rolls. Very good comfort food, we'd order those dishes again. If you enjoy Eastern European food, you have to try the Amber Rose!"

  • "A fun early dinner with my granddaughter. Because we were early, it was quiet. The waitress was excellent-we never had to ask for refills. Potato pancake appetizer was even better than the normal American potato skins, but with the same toppings. Wonderful soft, fresh rye bread was served with the salad. We both had the Lithuanian cabbage rolls, opting for one cabbage roll apiece. So glad there was an option to get just one, as the serving was very generous - along with lots of mashed potatoes and gravy. The green beans were average, however, dark and a bit hard to chew. We are anxious to return to try another menu item."

  • "The staff; fantastic, the drink list; great. My particular dish wasn't exciting, but not bad enough to warrant a negative comment. I will return soon to try something different."

  • "Food is always good, but our waitress was great this time. We took our kids, which we had never done before. They were very accommodating and have great menu options for kids. A great option for a night out if you don't have a sitter."

  • "We visited the Amber Rose on V-Day for a romantic dinner. It was okay and the limited menu was acceptable but not spectacular. Our meal selections was basic, tasty and did reflect good German tastes. We were looking forward to an authentic selection of warm breads and pretzels but were disappointed by the few slices of room temperature bread that appeared to have come from the grocery store, not even a bakery. They are charging a "premium" prices but are not there yet, need to take the sides and the bread selection up a notch in order to make it worth the +$20 per person that they are charging. Our server did a great job and was very attentive. We are planning to try again with friends in the near future, hopefully they can raise the bar."

  • "Amber Rose was a wonderful experience - the service was impeccable, the atmosphere old world yet very lively, and the food authentic eastern european. Having lived in Poland for a year, we're pretty discerning. Recommend highly the pierogies with onion, anything with their gravy, and the German Chocolate Cake (the best I've ever had). Cannot wait to return!"

  • "We had a group of four; two had never been to the Amber Rose. Our server was more than helpful and very prompt. Drinks and appetizers were ordered and lots of time given to us to enjoy and gab. Homemade salad dressings were outstanding! We all loved the breads and beer cheese spread…by the time our entrees got there we were almost full! Everyone shared theirs so we got the full experience and stopped early so we could have coffee and dessert. (Bread pudding was to die for!) THANK YOU! We'll be back...soon!"

  • "The dinner we had here was just decent. Nothing too fancy or too bad. We thought everything was mediocre. The big drawback for us was the lack of attention to detail. Cheap silverware, individual wrapped pats of butter for the bread, the food didn't taste fresh, lights out in most of the fixtures, ceiling tiles missing and falling off. We felt for the prices they charge, we could expect better!"

  • "We've been going to Amber Rose since 2004, so our most recent visit (January 2014) marks 10 years of on-and-off dining there. We continue to love the food and the ambiance!"

  • "The staff was attentive and friendly. The portions were generous, the food came out hot, a big plus, the salad was crisp and the vegetables fresh. The waitress recommended her favorite dishes when asked. The menu is compact, but there is enough variety to keep us coming back in addition to the old world charm."

  • "We made last minute reservations and we were not disappointed. The food was fantastic, the service was friendly, and the price was reasonable. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for any occasion."

  • "Made from scratch, wonderfully delicious, Eastern European food in a relaxed "old world" atmosphere. The old wooden floors, high tin ceiling, beautiful wooden bar with ornate trappings make you feel that you just walked in off the street in downtown Budapest."

  • "It was very refreshing to find this restaurant. The staff are friendly, attentive and know what they're selling. You feel just as if you're in a small family-run european restaurant. lt was well worth the drive for us not to be settling for another bland "chain restaurant" for which SW Ohio is unfortunately more noted. The variety of food was great and overall was a great place to try something new. We could probably go back a dozen times and not get bored with the food. The only thing I might suggest (although their beer list is still more extensive than most restaurants) would be perhaps a couple more truly european beers on tap...austrian/czech/polish? Otherwise a really nice restaurant off the beaten path...highly recommended."

  • "We reserved seating for 15 through Open Table and I called the Amber Rose the day ahead to make sure we were on the books. However, when our party arrived instead of a table for 15, they had two tables with 6 each. The server added chairs to one of the tables, as if it was an afterthought. The restaurant wasn't crowded so we were surprised that the tables weren't arranged properly to accommodate our group reservation. We were disappointed, and as the person making the reservation, I thought the servers should have immediately moved the tables to suit our needs."

  • "Bread was cold and tasteless. London Broil, while noted on the menu as being cooked medium rare, seemed substantially under cooked, and was not hot. It was so tough, there were pieces which I could not break down and swallow. Never again will I order it.. Vegetable of the day, broccoli, was overcooked and mushy. Not acceptable for a restaurant of its' stature. No longer our favorite restaurant in Dayton. Has moved WAY DOWN on our list."

  • "Lithuanian neighborhood gem! You have to try the cabbage rolls!"

  • "Great food and service from the waitress!! The only problem was from the hostess. She took us to a table and set the menus down and walked away. No "thanks for coming or enjoy your dinner".I went to her and asked if we could move to an open booth because of the drafty area. She rolled her eyes and said someone had 6:30 reservations. I said so did we. Not a good way to start the birthday party. She didn't have a smile on her face the whole time we were there. Management should have picked up on her behavior. Other than this, the meal was great."

  • "The food at The Amber Rose is consistently good and this meal was no exception. I had the Chicken Kiev and the other members of our party had the pork chops and the cabbage rolls. Everything was delicious."
