Great brunch experience! For one price you get to try everything on the menu and unlimited mimosas. Very cool rooftop and recommend for brunch!
Ambar was great. We were staying in Capitol Hill, and went for a date night on a Friday. It was super busy, but felt really COVID safe with well paced tables and plexiglass. The food was incredible and it was a great value to get the “Ambar experience” and unlimited cocktails. Highlights were the short rib, lamb lasagna, mojitos and cauliflower with parsley and tahini. Salmon was overcooked but still 5 stars for the quality of other food and experience. Will go back when we return to DC!
Familiar fare to a native central Pennsylvanian. Cabbage rolls, flatbread, brussels sprouts probably the favorites. Some of the stewed meats not as distinctive. Still have not adjusted to eating on the sidewalk.
My boyfriend and I went here for the first time on Thursday. What a great experience! We will definitely be back.
Food and service were fantastic--and the shrimp dish was phenomenal. We always have a great time at Ambar.
Great food and service. We did the ambar experience at about 5:30 pm. We sat on the second floor. It was a little bright but still nice.
Outstanding in every way. Great food, staff is the right level of attentive, and it’s a nice place to talk with friends as you dine.
I was very disappointed in our experience at Ambar. Last year, I took some family in from out of town and we all had the best time. This year when we returned, unfortunately, we didn't have the same experience. The portion sizes were tiny, but the prices were the same. The quality of the food is still top notch, but it's no longer worth the price.
This was the perfect place for my birthday dinner!! We got the Ambar Experience and we loved everything we tried on the menu! Everything was delicious!
They were very considerate and attentive to our anniversary. Highly recommended. Ate way too much because everything was so good!!
I’ve visited Ambar on a few occasions. Never disappointed! I love the new menu options and the unlimited brunch was great as usual. I love the fact that brunch is available on holidays. I will definitely be visiting again in the near future.
The Balkan influenced menu was very diverse and wonderfully tasty!
We enjoyed the option to try as many menu items as we wanted.
We will be back!
Another amazing experience! Service was exceptional and food was delicious as always!
I ate there about one year ago, it was probably one of my favorite dining experiences. The menu had changed, I was sorry to see that some of my favorites were no longer there.
Always a favorite stop in the DC area. Food is excellent and service is always great.
Excellent service and top notch food. We went for brunch at 2:30pm which only gave us an hour to enjoy the bottomless food and drinks since it ends at 3:30pm. Waitstaff did an excellent job making sure we got our money's worth and then some. We were absolutely stuffed by the end. Highly recommend Ambar! Best brunch in the city in my opinion.
Ambar is the perfect place to celebrate a special ocation or just come for the bottomless mimosas!
My boyfriend and I had a great time here, and we are def. coming back. We were also sitted on the new rooftop and it is so pretty!
Amazing food and value
Bartender uses to much vermouth in making a martini, the drink taste of vermouth, not gin.
Celebrating a birthday and Amber did not disappoint. We tried several new dishes and the cheese pizza and Brussels sprouts were the favorite. Definitely will be coming back.
Our server Shawn was very knowledgeable. I suggest the experience if it is your first time so you can try a little of everything. There wasn’t anything that we tasted that we disliked. Everything was fresh and delicious.
we were outside so little noise. Food was excellent and so was the waiter. Been before and will keep coming back!
Best brunch value in DC
It was my first time going made a reservation for 9:00pm since I saw the place closed at 11:00pm arrived at 8:54pm and I was told to wait outside while my table was ready it was ready at exactly 9:00 i didn’t like that there were no chairs for us to wait so we just stood we got sat on the third floor which looked super nice music was okay our server explained everything super nice tho she explained that they close at 10:00 which I did not like because we went for the 2 hour Ambar experience and only got one for the same price food was okay nothing that I loved or would repeat it was our anniversary and they gave us a cinnamon dessert that was the best plate of all the night drinks where okay 1st one was strong which I loved the other ones just tasted like sour mix we got margaritas. Overall nice experience but I won’t be returning.
Great food! And even better service
My family came last Fall & went again tonight 10/3/20. The updates & menu options are amazing. Great experience!! Highly recommend it!!
One of the best quality brunches in DC with top quality bottomless food, creative drinks, beautiful ambiance and stellar service. Could not recommend AmBar more for a special occasion or day with the friends!
Great food and atmosphere for brunch. The price for what we received was amazing as well. Highly auggest
One of my favorite DC spots. Have spent many hours at brunch, lunch and dinner here. The Food is always amazing. Flavorful. Unique. Service is great. Love the changes made since renovations.
Went here for weekend brunch (unlimited): amazing food with flavour palettes that you won't daily cook yourself or get in most restaurants. Restaurant staff was also very helpful & kind. Highly recommend!
This place is AMAZING. With their set price of $35/person for unlimited small plates, we were in heaven. The food was extremely authentic and absolutely delicious. This will definitely be the first place we go when we're back in DC. Don't miss the stuffed pepper dish!!
Phenomenal food and perfect service! I’ve already recommended Ambar to a friend.
Everything was wonderful. Thank you for being open!
Excellent service. Food even better.
If you ever get a chance to eat at Ambar do it! Highly recommended
I’ve spent a lot of time in the balkans, and Eastern Europe. It’s one of my favorite areas for cuisine in the world. They did an excellent job recreating some of my favorite dishes. Highly recommend this place!
Highly recommend! The experience was great including service & the food was amazing.
Great dining experience! Sharable plates for everyone and great service. Will come back again.
