Amber never disappoints. The food and service were exceptional. I was slightly disappointed that they did not have enough mussels to serve their appetizer. Otherwise, it is a lovely spot.
We were a party of 4. 3 had fish and 1 had Pasta Bucatini. The pasta was just fair.
Overall it was a very good evening.
Always a great experience!!
I was very impressed with the creative preparation and flavor the whitefish and also the steak Diane. We will be going back soon!
Usually love this place but hit or miss this time. Had linguine with seafood which was bland and with over cooked seafood. Others had the hanger steak and the mushroom risotto and loved them. Maybe just an isolated bad dish. Will certainly try them again. Service attentive and helpful as always. Patio a nice place to sit and enjoy
We were seated way in the back down steep concrete stairs. It felt like we were being lead to the 2nd class section. I did not like being so far away from the main restaurant and it lacked any ambiance. The tablecloth wasn’t crisp and clean, the silverware was very cheap quality and dingy. The food was average, nothing outstanding and the price was $140 for 3 for dinner. The menu was very limited. I am sorry to say I won’t be back unless things significantly change.
The Service and food was exquisite. Went for Sunday brunch with family and had a wonderful time. Very accommodating, Both host and server were tremendously kind and helpful.
Was on Mothers Day. Food except omelette was cold. No beverages such as orange juice not included. Waiter was good. Overall value for price not good at all.
Food was excellent. Service was nonexistent
Our first time dining here. Everything was great
Delicious food and great service. We will be back !!
Great place to enjoy dinner. Server (Christopher) went above and beyond and was charming (and cute, too). Food was superb and enjoyed by all our guests.
We always enjoy the food at Amber. We had not been there in a while, and as we sat, I remembered why. Service is spotty and was slow. It seemed no one was assigned our table and if we called someone over, they would respond and take the order. Inconsistent is the word.
Excellant food and very friendly and efficient waitstaff. Will return.
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.
We were disappointed. Our server did not come to our table for quite some time after we were seated. He finally came and took our drink orders, he brought our drinks and didn't wait for our food order. I would say if was 20 -30 minutes before he came back for our dinner order. 3 of the 4 of us ordered the 3 course meal (not sure if that was what it was called) it included a salad, an entree and a dessert for $30. It seemed like a good value until the food came, the portions were soooooooooo small. The food was good but not a good value and not good service, oh and we were freezing, our table was by a very drafty window.
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!
