Amber Café Ratings and Reviews
One thing is it was a cold evening and the front door was without a secondary breezeway causing cold air to enter with ever use.
Our mushroom appetizers took forever. I believe they were forgotten. When I reminded them, the mushrooms arrived but were cold.
The dinners were good as was the coffee. The staff was good.
The service we received from our waiter left a lot to be desired. We got better service from out "busboy" than we got from the waiter. This was really the only negative of the night. The food was very good as were all other aspects of our dinning experience. Definitely a return trip in the future.
Celebrated our birthdays tonight with our 94 year old Grandmother and 73 year old mother and they both loved it. The food and service were top notch and we were able to speak to each other during dinner as it wasn't super noisy (which Gigi really enjoyed). Thank you for a wondering evening out.
I ordered short ribs but got a dry horrible piece of pot roast that I wouldn't give to my dog.
My girlfriend ordered white fish. It was dry and overcooked.
I spent half of the night on the toilet, the other half I was in pain. I would have been better off with a cheeseburger from McDonald's. Sent the meal back with two thirds of the meat left. It had zero moisture, and I needed a drink of water to wash it down my throat or I would have chocked. It was definitely pot roast, not short ribs, and was served over a bed of soggy veggies and mashed potatoes. Horrible experience! Got the scallops to replace it. They were good. They didn't even comp a desert for the troubles. Don't go to this place. Over priced and over rated!
My husband and I celebrated our 31st anniversary at our favorite restaurant, Amber. Beautiful patio, delicious food, and awesome service! The whitefish is my favorite - served with tomatoes, spinach and cous cous- it is just so good!! My husband had the steak frites special which was perfectly medium rare. Our server Chris surprised us with prosecco to toast our anniversary - a perfect evening!
We really loved Amber - the food and service were awesome as we celebrated my husband's birthday. Maybe because it was a summer Wednesday evening, but by 8:30, we were the only people in the restaurant! It was a little odd, but still had a wonderful meal. I would definitely be back and sit on the incredible outdoor patio.
We were not as happy with this visit. The food was good, but the service was not what we have experienced on previous visits. Maybe just an off night, but we had several different people waiting on us and it got a bit confusing. It was almost like no one really wanted our table, and at one point two of them got into a bit of a heated discussion because one thought that the other had interrupted them. Just not the professional service we have seen in the past. I am sure we will go back and hopefully next time will be better.
As many reviews I'd seen elsewhere I had the same experience. The staff was all friendly and knowledgeable. The food was quite good. The price, however, was a bit much for the quality of food. The portions were very good though, unless you consider price and portion to be important. We were all satisfied and of the four of us only one had anything left to take home.
It was our first time at amber and it couldn't have been better! Our server, Chris, was outstanding! I ordered the peach cobbler and completely forgot to ask about nuts and when it had already come out and I remembered to ask, he brought me another dessert right away. The food was cooked to perfection and delicious. We will most certainly be back again!
