Excellent dining experience.Would highly recommend the double pork chop and hanger steak. Great wine selection as well. Had the Malbec which paired very well with our entrees
The food was delicious, the service was excellent. Such a great place to go for a nice meal and great conversation.
Nice people and some allowances for an off night but just not as good as previous experiences at Amber. Unfortunate that there were a few items that they were out of that night.
This was our first time there and everything was amazing! Will be back soon!
Not a good experience. Will not return. Bad table. Food ok.
Must have been short staffed, restaurant was full but we only saw our server and we did not see him often! Lack of attention was disappointing but the food and ambience is worth a RE-visit.
Currently our favorite restaurant in the Western suburbs. Love the wine and food. They have a great menu that appeals to everyone. Anything from a date night to family friendly dining. It is a bit more upscale so I would recommend smart casual attire.
Food was fabulous. It took nearly an hour to get it and the restaurant was near empty.
The entire experience was wonderful. They were polite from the greeters to the waiter to the bus boys. Wonderful food for different palates served hot. Drinks were well made. The split pea soup was delicious. The tiramisu was the best I ever had. The Fresh bread with a Black Sea salt sprinkled butter was soft and delicious. Ambiance was perfect for our date night. All in all I would recommend this restaurant for many occasions.
Wonderful service from our waiter Chris at Amber! Three of us enjoyed a delicious Saturday night dinner. Crab cake appetizer was so flavorful and fell apart as we placed them on our plate- evidence that it was mostly crab with little breadcrumbs. The whitefish with cous cous was delicious as usual, and two of us ordered the filet with mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts which melted in their mouths.
Excellent variety of creative dishes. All ingredients are extremely fresh, flavorful and exquisitely prepared & presented.
Great food and atmosphere. Nice spot in burbs if not in mood head to city
The food is great and the service from Chris is even better than the food. What a gem of a place.
The food was very good, the service was not the best. The waiter was very nice and mostly knowledgeable, but we waited a long time for our check. This may not have been the waiters fault. This was restaurant week and maybe the staffing wasn’t what was needed for this busy week.
Bad news. Seated in an outdoor area with cheesy plastic windows in mid-winter. The room smelled of garbage.
Food and service average at best.
We wanted to try a local restaurant and were very pleased. The food and wine were excellent. Interesting choices and very nicely presented.
This was our first time at this restaurant - food was awesome, service impeccable and the wait staff was knowledgeable about the menu and wine list.
We will visit again.
Service was attentive and not rushed. Food was outstanding. My husband had the whitefish and I had the special, fluke. Both were served with plenty of perfectly cooked vegetables on the side. Dessert was a complimentary slice of key lime cheesecake....delish!
We had a guest who needed extra attention, walker accessability. We were seated in a comfortable corner table. Whole group had a fabulous time. food outstanding and service super accommodating. Everyone in group talking about wanting to go back
Disappointed in the service and the food. Service was slow and food was forgettable. We used to go to Amber back in 2009/2010 and it was amazing. This was our first time back in awhile and the birthday dinner fell flat.
This has been a favorite restaurant for many years. Great food, great waitstaff, great chef... We go there to celebrate special occasions, as well as to meet friends. Great patio in warmer weather, cozy dining room in the winter.
Service is impeccable! Went with my husband and son, we had Greek chicken and 2 hanger steaks. Steak was delicious, fries were average. Amish chicken was good and mashed potatoes were awesome!
Great food and great service from Ricardo.
Great Experience, Great Food. Our waiter was Chris, he has a great personality and is a great server.
Seemed understaffed. Slow getting a server initially, slow getting first drink from bar which is unusual here from previous visits. Never were asked for second slice of bread- asked multiple times for butter refill. The busser was rude and nearly threw the cup of coffee at us. Something seemed very off from what we expected.
First time at Amber and we were very pleased.
Service and food were excellent!
Loved everything about Amber!
This was the 4th time we’ve been to Amber Cafe. The 1st time we were very impressed but our other visits were just OK. Our Wednesday night was mixed among the 4 of us. The NY strip was very good but the Gnocchi was very heavy on the tomato sauce and the chicken that my wife had was undercooked. The service was excellent and it is a charming little room. I guess it just depends on what you order.
While our experience was very good, the menu and wine list posted on their website had many more “fine dining” choices than what was available when we arrived. We were especially disappointed in the wine list.
Food delicious, ambiance cozy, service friendly. A great choice for a date night, special occasion, or just a great meal.
Wonderful food and fantastic service. Attention to detail was perfect. Loved the wine list.
Overall nice experience. Very good food, slightly limited menu, maybe slightly pricey (not much), nice wine list.
Interior is all 'hard surfaces' so noise level is relatively high just from adjacent tables' conversations. OK if occasion fits that environment, good for nice dinner out either as couple or with friends. Would not be the best environment for a 'romantic dinner' (lighting and noise level).
Would definitely go back, nice to have a good 'American Cuisine' restaurant locally with nice varied though limited menu and good limited wine list.
Overall value is 4-.
Very enjoyable with every visit. Food very nicely prepared and presented. Best beet salad! Selection of appetizers and entrees is very adequate. Quite enough for good conversation. Wonderful evening!
This is a neighborhood treasure! beautiful outdoor seating. Service excellent. It has the feel of being in a romantic European restaurant. The table cloth and napkins are linen!
This is my go to place. The people are warm and welcoming !
Love Amber café.
Our meals were outstanding, but the service was very poor: waiter was slow to come to the table (15 minutes!), rushed through specials, and wasn't seen again....
We had a great time here. The waiter was very attentive and really made the experience. The food was good not great. We had the recommendation of the white fish and it was very good but not great. Easy place to dine with consistently good food.
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.
Food was stellar as usual, friendly staff, perfect ambiance. Highly recommend!
Food was amazing. Waiter was great. We went on a weekday and the place was very quiet. It's a smaller menu, but that's why everything came out perfect. Wonderful wine list and desserts.
We love this restaurant on the main street of the town in which we live. We dine out a lot and your cannot beat Amber for a wonderful cozy experience. I highly recommend it
