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!

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.

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.
