Immerse yourself in the time-honored techniques and evocative flavors of wood-fired Mexican cuisine at Ámbar Restaurante in downtown El Paso. The menu is led by Executive Chef Lawrence Acosta, who brings his mastery of regional Mexican cuisine to the city.

Patrons are greeted by a spectacular 40-foot-tall amber glass and polished stainless steel wall that showcases the bar area and one of the largest tequila collections in Texas.

Chef Acosta makes a conscious effort to support the boutique, family-run farms and makers in Mexico, and the menu features centuries-old Mexican recipes with a regionally driven twist. Popular dishes include ceviches, roasted cauliflower w/ mole poblano tacos, bacon tacos; al pastor; and tomahawk ribeye. For dessert, coconut tres leches and mesquite chocolate cake by Pastry Chef Jakki Rojo.

Join us for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Dinner took over three hours and we had to keep asking for our server and for things we needed. He was kind when at our table but getting him there was hard. The order was messed up as well and one person waited significantly longer for their food.

All the things we missed during the pandemic are back in this great dining experience. Ordered the guacamole, plantains, tacos and salad. They accommodated my daughter with a quesadilla and black beans. Prices are a bit shocking ($14 for an a-la-cart taco), but the food is delicious and worth a visit.

One person in our party had the enchiladas Suizas someone else had the carnitas tacos, and another had the suadero tacos. Everyone like their choices. I ordered the pescado Veracruzano. It was delicious. I shared it with everyone and everybody agreed it was the best dish. I noticed people were turned away at the entrance because they did not have a reservation. My advise is plan ahead and make a reservation. I give Ambar Restaurante 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Menu was more limited than last visit which was also a bit disappointing for an anniversary dinner. Gave it another try.. and I will not be returning.

The kitchen was visible from the table and we enjoyed the smells and sounds of the chefs preparing our meals. The second time that we visited, the kitchen was empty. Our meals were prepared in the back of the house. There was no atmosphere and we were very disappointed.

We had ceviche, guac, short rib, arrachera plate , carnita taco and suadero taco. Arrachera was pretty tough and fatty. If you want tacos go to Elemi or Taconeta. They do have a good mezcal selection though.

Ambar charges $50 for mahi mahi- never heard of those kind of prices for fish like mahi mahi. It was rather ridiculous. The coconut tres leches was good and the tuetano. Overall, I would safely say that I nor my tastebuds will be returning.

So I'm willing to cut some slack. But still...our meals were served tepid to warm...not hot. The salmon was incredibly dry. The appetizers were meh. I was slightly overcharged (but the bill quickly corrected). Having dined at Cafe Central the night before at a similar price point and been delighted, I have to say that despite Ambar's close proximity, the two restaurants are worlds apart.

This is the second time in a month I have had dinner here. To say the two experiences were so different is an understatement. Our waitress Marie last night was attentive and polite. She had a lot of tables it seemed. The bar was extremely slow to get our drinks out. At one point my husband asked for a second glass of wine. When his food came out. It was served after he finished and I mean like 30 + minutes. One of the other people in our party of four and I ordered the salmon. The food took a long time to come to us even with the allowance that this is fine dining and not fast food. Guess what? When our food was delivered… there was no salmon. The chef had switched out to halibut. No one asked us if that was ok. Not the chef. Not the waitress.We both accepted the dish so that is on us.We also informed the waitress and asked what type of fish it was. The fish was over cooked. I might give the restaurant another try when in town again but there are some other great options downtown that are better I believe. I did give some stars for good due to the fact that the food here is good. And the drinks were accurate just very slow.

We were told that we wont be charged for the appetizer and we were. The carnitas we ordered was so dry and firm that it could not be put on tortillas its cut like a tough steak. Overall it was a terrible experience and if we can back in town would not go back

We had pork carnitas and the duck mole as well as ceviche. The service unfortunately was very poor considering the reputation of this restaurant. It started with the hostess. Upon approaching her she asked if we were guests of the hotel. I replied that we were but had reservations. I guess she didn’t hear that part and told us we’d have to sit outside the main restaurant area, but we straightened that out; no apology, no smile. And while our waitress was very nice, every single timing of our dinner was off. Appetizer before cocktails. Asked for a wine menu but she did not return to get our wine order. The GM ended up filling our water glasses and offered a free desert which was lovely. However the desert and the desert wine we ordered were not served together. I understood it was a busy night, however a table seated well after us received their food way before we did. Would absolutely return for the food! One young lady, Kimberly, was very nice and went out of her way to interact with us so thank you Kimberly for being the bright spot in our evening!
