I met a friend for a lovely outdoor spring lunch but the food was average at best with very skimpy portions. I understand inflation is difficult in the restaurant business but either charge more and increase the amount of tuna in the tuna salad or don’t offer it.

We really enjoyed the Fig Garlic Walnut Brie for an appetizer. The Scallops over risotto in a unique wine sauce was divine! We also enjoyed a superb Pio Pino Grigio and an terrific Prosecco combo. Service on a holiday filled restaurant was quite good. Can't wait to return!

My wife and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary. The food was incredibly good. We both had the filet mignon with mashed potatoes and mixed veggies. Delicious! The service was also very good and the waitress, Tina, was wonderful. It's always a sure thing eating at JAI.

I like craft beer and they have none on tap and no local beer just Sam Adams Heineken etc. crap. Also no change to the beer menu in a year. Time for a freshening of the menus

The steak in the strip salad was very tough - should have been sent back, but was not. The crab cake was delicious as well as the salmon and chicken. Would return for service, ambience and location.

Great service from our waiter (table 21 thanks you) and the food was just delicious. The vegetables were perfectly cooked - so crisp and fresh I could have made a whole meal with them alone. Can't wait to go back again!

Steak and ratatouille so salty, potatoes too hard, crab cake very bland. Service was great initially but sporadic after that. We have had great meals here in the past but were very disappointed this time around.

The server explained that they were short staffed and that there was a high number of walk ins that came in. Management should not seat more customers than can be adequately served in a reasonable amount of time. We have been at the Ambler Inn on numerous occasions and have never experienced such a poor level of service. Hopefully the management will use better judgement in the future and limit the number of customers to a number that can be serviced adequately.

We wanted to sit outside for a drink before going inside for dinner and that was no problem for them. Sean was our waiter and he was great suggesting and explaining menu items. It is so cozy there.

Our food was a ten out of ten. Sea bass and the filet. Main entrees were great and the sides were expectational as well which is a mark of a great chef. Service was slow and inattentive. Our server apologized for the delay after we sat for a while when first seated. I thought after the apology we would get back on track. That wasn’t the case. I think when you offer great food at higher prices you should consider white linens and servers not in leggings. Maybe I’m old fashioned. The decor might need to be freshened up a bit. I get it’s historic and I understand the look they are going for but some of the decor was pretty dated. We will be back based on the food and maybe we just caught the lack of service on an off night. The dining room was busy so obviously they do a good job here

Since we were waiting for our dinner companions we did not order any appetizers or food. Once everyone was seated our orders were taken and it was about 15 minutes when food was served. The food was hot and all orders were prepared as ordered, everyone agreed that the food was very good. All in all the food, service and restaurant were very good.
