Great food for great prices. Somewhat eclectic combinations of ingredients and spices to achieve an interesting culinary experience. Definitely will go back. Also, good with honoring reservations. Room is a little noisy, but that's because there is so much great conversation going on!

First waiter was not very friendly and seem agitated when asking for recommendations. He got the first drink order wrong. When asked if there what was the other cocktail with coconut in it that he recommended earlier he proceeded to say there were no coconut cocktails, which the first wrong drink he brought out was a coconut cocktail. He kept disappearing into the restroom. He never came back to see how we were doing. Another waiter who was Asian came to help for the rest of the night. This restaurant need wait staff that has better customer service. If your wait staff does not want to be in the service industry then they shouldn't be there. It completely ruins the mood for everyone one making the likelihood to return is slim to none.

I had such high hopes for this place. After spending over $200 on dinner I was so disappointed in the wait times on food. I ordered two appetizers and four meals for all four of us. I specifically requested that the appetizers be served first then all of the meals together after....
the appetizers were indeed served first but then one meal was served a couple of minutes after.... then another about 20 Minutes after.... then another about another 10 after and the last one (which was for my son) was served about 45 Minutes after the first one!!!! This was not meant to be family style..... all thebwaiter couldnsaybwas that he is new and he agrees that the wait time on many dishes were too long....

The place was a little hard to find, the address is listed wrong. The waiters are slow, but the food is worth the wait. Prices are good and lots of veg choices. Drinks are creative. Definitely worth the drive

We Loved our experience here! Food was absolutely wonderful from main course to desert. We made a reservation and they place a card on your table with your name on it a nice touch!! We were there early so it wasn’t crowded so noise level was good but I can see it could get a little loud since it’s one open room. Overall it was a great experience!

Decided to dine here for my fiancé birthday because it was so amazing on Valentine’s Day, but little did I know we were in for such Disrespectful service. Our inattentive waiter Jax accused me of having had ordered three drinks in the 15 minutes we’d been there. Mind you he had only been to our table once. There was a mix up with our table and the one next to us but he was very adamant stating it was my third drink and wanted me to be aware. I initially thought he was joking, but he wasn’t so I told him he need to go figure it out. Needless to say he returns and apologizes for the mix up but the embarrassment had already affected our dining experience. Service was even slower after that, the crab fried rice was mushy, and our lamb were next to torched. Avoid this place, the new management has really dropped the ball. Our special occasion was absolutely ruined!

Our favorite place to go for about last 3 years! Flavorful food, excellent service. Love smaller portions during happy hour so you can taste different foods. Brussels sprouts and shishito peppers are absolutely amazing and a must to try!
We will definitely be coming back again.

Everything was so delicious from the ribs, curry potatoes, brussels sprouts, to the chicken samosas. The drinks were hand crafted and creative. I dinned with a group of six and everyone enjoyed food and the excellent service. We will be back.

This was my first visit Ambrosia restaurant and I was blown away at how great everything tasted. My daughter was in for work and I searched OpenTable for a new and interesting restaurant. My daughter and I ordered about six dishes and the risotto with tiger prawn shrimp was my favorite. The cocktails complimented our meal so well. I look forward to my next visit...

Service was impeccable, but the food was mediocre. Food is overpriced and happy hour menu was a bit disappointing. Tried regular menu food and few of the dishes like the ribs and flatbread were great, but others were not worth getting.
