Very nice restaurant and some of the best steaks and sides we have have anywhere. The service was excellent. The only problem we had was a couple with two children and the smaller one was literally screeching the loudest he could for 3/4 of the meal.

Servers were very courteous and attentive to our table. While the food was great, I do think the porterhouse was a little tougher than it could have been, but it isn't a major complaint as it was still a great dish.

This was my first time here. It was a quick business lunch and I opted for a burger which was excellent. The steaks that were coming out looks amazing and smelled just as good. I will have to go back soon. The waitress was outstanding and very attentive. The restaurant has the look and feel of a high end steak house. The location can be tough if you are driving but then again it is Brooklyn and this is what you have to deal with.

Had a business dinner there with some colleagues on a Wednesday night. It wasn't too busy which was perfect. They sat us in the back so it felt very private. My favorite time of the evening was getting a wine education from one of the staff members. He overheard us discussing wine, interjected and really set us straight. I love to drink red wine and now I feel like I could leave my comfort zone and explore some new regions based on his suggestions. Steak was also perfectly cooked. Highly recommend this place

We LOVE Amber!
This time the fish (salmon) was not as fresh as it normally is, but that rarely ever happens.
It has charm, and the services is ALWAYS outstanding! Portions are generous and food is delicious!
The atmosphere is classic-- white table cloths and napkins the wait staff dressed in suits and ties.
It is an adult atmosphere clean, quiet, professional and charming-- you can actually have a conversation with the people at your table!, and not have to yell to be heard. I LOVE AMBER!

Was going to go to Peter Luger's for our Anniversary, but when we got there they rudely said not accepting walk-ins as much as they have online reservation site now and "dismissed us". Many empty tables at 5:00 pm, too so their website is misleading! I remembered seeing Amber Steak House listed as one of top 10 steakhouses in Brooklyn, and was a brief ride from there. We made a reservation on open table and drove there. From the beginning, everyone there was so very nice. It was the best, most amazing ribeye steak we have ever had and also had extensive wine/cocktail list. They had the best home made steak sauce, too! Our waiter, Chris was excellent! As far as dessert, save room for the huge slice of heavenly carrot cake, you will not regret it! This is the steak place to be, we will be going back always and telling all our friends and family too! A gem in Brooklyn!

Food was solid and the steaks were excellent. Cocktails were really good. The restaurant perhaps lacked a bit of atmosphere

Staff are friendly and professional. Food is ok but I was expecting a better steak. Our NY strip was cooked through more like a medium well done while we ordered medium rare and the waiter insisted it was medium rare. So that was a bit disappointing. The ribeye on the bone was delicious. All 3 appetizers that we ordered were ok, nothing spectacular (we ordered escagot, beets cappacio and portobello mushrooms). Overall it was ok but we will probably won't go back.

The food and wine were excellent. I had the filet mignon and it was made to perfection. My companions had the chicken and port tenderloin and both enjoyed their meals. The only thing by the end of the evening the restaurant was crowded and the noise level went up but not enough that you couldn't hear yourself.

It was amazingly delicious. Upscale but not uncomfortable. Everyone was extremely polite. I had a glass of rose and it was the best rose I have had i didn’t even get to ask which bottle it was from.

Nice gem of a steakhouse in Brooklyn. All our food was perfect. The steaks, filets and tbone cooked perfectly. Sides, veggies and potatoes excellent all with good portions. Only gripe is service could have been a little better, waters refilled, ask us if we want more drinks, etc... we weren’t exactly dressed up and at first seemed like we were ignored but waitress finally warmed up and made conversation at end of our meal. Definitely will go back.

Great steak, very good drinks. Affordable drinks, especially for a steakhouse.

Improvement tips: Bread the calamari a bit differently, seems to be a pancake style batter, but it did come nice and crispy. Recommend serving with banana peppers. Find a new sauce rather than the wasabi its served with, wasnt very tasty. Perhaps an Aoli? Spicy marinara was excellent though.

Steak Sauce: Seems to be A1? Au jus or something custom might be a bit better.

All around, Bone-In Ribeye was cooked perfectly. Friendly and fast service. Will have to come back when we're a bit more hungry and try some more delicious sides.
