I never leave reviews, but this was a great dining experience. We got there at 6:50pm, and they still let us order off the happy hour menu for cocktails even though there was 5 minutes left. They never rushed us, but were very attentive. When my friend ordered something and I went to try it, they brought me a plate to make it easier. Would 100% go back!

Nice place. Nice dinner.
Unfortunately black sesame ice was not available which is a bit of a shame for a Japanese restaurant

Our sushi was delicious! Our server was kind and gave us time to order drinks, then appetizers and let us decide what we wanted with leisure. The atmosphere was cool but nothing over done. We really enjoyed and would recommend. Good sushi for a decent price.

Best sushi in lower Manhattan- I’m from vancouver Canada and found it hard to find delicious, fresh, creative sushi. This place is incredible. The tuna pancake is a must have. So is the lobster kiwi roll. Just incredible.

Foods good. They sat us in the back room that felt a little like a dungeon and was freezing (literally like ten degrees colder than the front part of the restaurant) think service was also slower being stuck back there.

I choose this place because of it's convenience to where I intended to be later to see theatre, and had no or low expectations. The eggplant appetizer was amazing. really. not too sweet and well cooked and not burned -- really amazing. the rolls we had were great. the staff exceptionally sweet. it was a surprise. I would go back!
also I'm not 'young' so. it's a plus that we could talk without having to shout.

Passable sushi in brick covered restaurant..but with loud blaring radio music. Not much authentic about it. Passable eel roll.
Probably will not return.

Amber West has, hands down, the best sushi in NYC! We have been going there for years before going to the Lucille Lortel Theater. Will be sure to make a special trips from UES just for their food now that MCC is moving their location from the West Village. The freshness of the food, the presentation, the variety of menu selections -- all are superb. Good work, Amber West!

Let me say first, this review is less about the food but is based on my experience of being a 15+ year OpenTable user and loyal customer (of both the restaurant and the service). I had received the first of the newer OpenTable rewards ‘cards’ and was excited to use it at Amber, since I visit frequently and enjoy their sushi for its good quality and relative value.

On this visit, however, the experience was far from enjoyable. Upon being seated I shared a print out of my rewards card, as instructed by OpenTable. The manager / proprietor was very quick to tell me this was all wrong and would not be accepted because she only knew of the real cards and believed they had a contract with the service in terms of fulfillment. She then phoned OpenTable, which took at least 20 minutes, and of course returns saying all is well and may I take your order.

As I wrote above, the food was delicious but perhaps because I was using the reward, I received absolutely no attention from any server (had to flag someone down after several minutes of trying to get someone’s attention so I could order a glass of wine then finally O asked for the check (this too took quite a while since nobody was paying much attention to the woman using a rewards card). Check arrived, and no accommodation towards the reward had been made so I had to clear that up, once again. Basically, through the entire process i was made to feel very unwelcome, and like an a**hole for daring to use the reward. Either use the service and be prepared to fulfill your pet of the deal, or stop using it. I’ve been a loyal diner since I moved back to he city last October, but this sadly has made me think twice about returning.

We were there on a quieter night with not so many customers. The service was fast and attentive. The sushi was good — nothing particularly exceptional stands out. I’d go back but I would probably also seek out some other sushi restaurants to explore before making a return visit.

The sushi did not compare to the higher-end sushi bars that you can find in the rest of NYC, but the dumplings were splendid and the service was exceptional. Good if you're looking for a last second sushi place in Greenwich Village
