    Evevn though it was a Monday, since it was restaurant week, I made reservations for 4. When we arrived, the place was EMPTY, except for about 10 people sitting at the bar and a table of 2 in a corner. There was no person greeting patrons at the front when walking in - we waited for 5 minutes until I went to the bar to tell them we had a reservation. We were finally seated. Our waitress didn't show up for about another 10 minutes. She was rude and was not knowledgable about the menu or restaurant. We were handed 2 menus - one for tapas and a regular course meal menu. We asked her to explain how our group could order from the menus - she simply stated that this is a Latin fusion restaurant and next month we will have sushi. WHAT??!! Yes, that was our reaction too. We finally ordered 3 tapas as appetizers and told her we needed more time for our entrees - 25 minutes went by before our tapas were brought to the table. No explanation, no apologies. We decided to forego dinner, since we did not want to wait G_ knows how long for dinner so we ordered 2 desserts. When asked how the crepes were prepared, she said they were thin pancakes. Gee, thanks. The desserts - 1 order of crepes and 1 flan - came out 15 minutes later. On a brighter note, the food was good, but not good enough to outweigh all these issues. I will NEVER go back.

    I went to Blue Amber last week after receiving a flyer from the Westchester NPHC for 10% off. I enjoyed the food so much, I forgot to use my coupon. Oh well, I guess I have to go back again to use it.

    The restaurant was advertised as Spanish food, however the drinks were bad; like a child experimenting and the food was nothing to write home about.

  • a Latin Surprise
    Dined on 8/17/2014
    I knew this location as Iron Shaker before they had changed themselves into Blue Amber, so I wasn't expecting a full-Latin menu. We had some lovely mojitos, including a Jamaica-flower based one, as well as a tamarind, whose texture and mouthfeel were very interesting, not to mention delicious! We blitzed through the bruschetta which included the secret ingredient: yucca. Also delicious. We had both of the mofongos, and were happy with our mutual choices; she with the traditional steak version that was hearty, and me with my shrimp in a nice savory sauce. The surprise was apple strudel for dessert; What? Ah, well, it was graced with dulce de leche, of course! Fun all around, and the bachata music never stops.

    We had a group of 4 and we're not sure what to expect as we could not find a menu online prior to arriving. The food was delicious! We had numerous dishes: pork and fish tacos, ceviche, bruschetta, drunken chicken sliders, pork chop entree. All were wonderful and tasty. The drinks from the bar were fabulous as well. Definitely recommend!
