Great sushi! Always consistent! Definitely a neighborhood gem!
I haven't been to Amber in a while, and I must say I like the new look. It makes it a lot more spacious, with an airy vibe and open spaces. It makes it look more inviting, although I must admit the bamboo that split the space was super cute and I wish it was still there. That being said, the menu is still the same, the staff is still as friendly as ever and the sushi station is still present. The food tastes great, the shumai is super fresh and I love their pineapple fried rice. Their sizzling hot plates are also really good. They have great service so I will be back again soon.
Great as usual!! excellent food, excellent service a very pleasant place to eat!!
Very nice atmosphere for lunch. Lovely service and a great bargain.
Pretty place. Glad I discovered it.
Good to very good neighborhood sushi place. I come here regularly, only once did they disappoint me. Usually, very reliable.

Enjoyed the experience. Good very good service excellent
Wonderful food, lovely ambience. The air conditioning was a little cool. The wait staff were lovely; just a little slow in getting the bill to us. Highly recommend.
Great food , creative and never disappoint recommend to everyone
Good sushi, would have again. Could have been more flavorful but I'm a foodie. This would be really good sushi for most people. Will continue my search. The service was excellent.
Excellent, fresh fish
Friendly, efficient service.
At Amber, the food is consistently excellent and the service is terrific. The sashimi is always fresh and the portions are substantial which is much appreciated. The shumai, the miso soup, the teriyaki dishes - all are excellent. As for the service, we are always greeted with a smile and made to feel welcome. Marshall, one of the servers, is especially great. He is knowledgeable, responsive, professional, friendly, and helpful. In all, dining at Amber is always enjoyable and we intend to keep going there regularly.
Lovely in the back room. Food was delicious and fresh.
What a fantastic vibe at Amber! I love a sushi environment that's contemporarily adorned but comfortable, with real candles and TVs for catching a game—or in the case of last night, the NBA draft. When the weather's nice, the space opens in many ways to become delightfully airy.
The sushi and service are as alluring as the atmosphere, with reasonable prices for an all-around excellent value. My only complaint is that a side of steamed veggies requires a full entree.
2nd time in about a week. great neighborhood restautant !
Consistently good sushi and great brunch and neighborhood vibe
good food. good servers. but interior and atmosphere could be improved. it can be higher standard restaurant with that.

A nice variety of Asian food. Delicious appetizers & sushi. Fun place to eat!
Good I will go back
Amber has delicious food and always has great rolls
The service is also good.
Very good - good sushi in a nice neighborhood place.
The pad Thai was yummy and moist. Sushi was good too
A friend and I shared a sushi/sashimi combination. It was incredibly fresh and delicious, and I was stuffed when I left. The service was extremely nice and personable. A really great experience. I highly recommend it.
good for neighborhood sushi and nice having staff know what you like
Enjoy this local sushi restaurant, however, the service on our last visit was NOT GOOD! We were only 1 of 2 tables in the restaurant and everything took FOREVER. The table next to us ended up sending part of their order back as it took so long and then asked for their check and left, quite disappointed.
This is our neighborhood sushi place, so hopefully, this was just an odd/off night for them.
Best appetizers of this kind on UES. Usually the sushi is amazing but for the first time in the so many times we have been there I was disappointed. The sushi was cut thicker than usual which made it chewy and uncomfortable. Fresh sushi has been the hallmark of Amber’s menu but this batch didn’t quite work for me.
Decent Japanese on the upper east side. Not the best, but certainly not the worst. Stick with appetizers and hot dishes. The rolls are not great all the time and the sushi is cut very, very thin and many times not too flavorful.
Great neighborhood sushi standard. Nice to walk in and have servers that have known our family for years, know what we like to eat, and treat us well. Always look forward to some good sashimi & sushi.
always very good food, service, etc. much better than other neighborhood sushi restaurants
My friend and I enjoyed a selection of appetizers - duck, spring rolls, scallion pancake, shrimp, etc. - for dinner before going to see a performance at a nearby community theatre. I was disappointed in the slow service; other than that, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable and we enjoyed our meal.
Great sushi place!! Plenty of food and very good price.
Sat in back room— quieter. VERY varied menu. Rolls (Spider and Oyster) were very good!
Wife and I were walking through Central Park and needed some food nearby. This place was great, service, food, atmosphere. We will definitely be back.
Very bad sashimi Chef,s choice
It looks like that chef doesn’t feel Japanese cuisine
Great food, helpful staff, enjoying dining experience.
Great neighborhood restaurant. Have been coming here for many years. There's something on the menu for everyone, no matter how picky they are.
Awesome Lychee martinis.
The Sushi was great, the wine per glass was also fine, the service impecable:) Will come back!
The service was so great! And we enjoyed the food there.
