    There is much to be praised about gentility—there is so little of it about anymore. But it does reside at the Ambassador, a refined setting with a restrained menu that can accommodate most tastes. All-in-all, an experience to be repeated—many times.

    The lighting was very dark. Need more light to see menu, food and surroundings. The atmosphere can still be romantic and cozy but not dark and dreary. Other than that the food was delicious and the service was amazing.

    Went for dinner on a Friday night, and the food was just very mediocre. We had three entrées that basically all tasted the same. Quite expensive. Very disappointing.  Quite expensive.

    Our whole family was amazed at the beauty of the restaurant, on the ground floor of a great prewar apartment building. Quiet, old-school, cozy, so easy and inviting. Beautifully decorated for Christmas. We sat by the fireplace and windows. The food was outstanding. Exceptional service. The whole experience was like a dream. We cannot wait to return.

    We have gone many times over the years and last night was definitely a disappointment. The butter chicken and chicken tikka masala lacked flavor. It was very poor service and our waiter disappeared after we ordered and had to get other waiters attention to get drink refills, the check, etc. We sat on the patio and it was decorated for Christmas but a little overwhelming with constant dancing lights and it was very loud. While normally an elegant experience, last night was a miss. With the expensive prices for below average food I’m not sure I will return.

    Really enjoyed the restaurant! We had a corner table near the fireplace. I liked the ambiance of the room. The service was excellent! The food was very good. I found the food to be a little sweeter and creamier than traditional Indian. This is indicative of the neighborhood the restaurant is in. I understand they tried truly authentic and it didn’t go well. Our waiter hooked me up with some spiced up mango chutney. I would go back! I’d like to go back in the summer when the doors are open to the courtyard.

    I have loved this restaurant for over 20 years and my favorite part is the outdoor patio. The service and food are still good. However, I'm concerned that the prices have gotten too expensive...approximately $10 more per entree is too much.

    We had a wonderful Mother's Day dinner at the Ambassador. I love spicy food and was sad to see they were only offering a buffet that evening. We asked if we could order off the menu instead, and the manager said yes! Everything we ordered was amazing and I can't wait to go back again. Highly recommend for the food, ambiance, and the customer service!

    The service was good with friendly staff. We eat at a lot of different Indian restaurants but it is several years since eating at the Ambassador. We knew the prices had gone up so weren’t surprised when we got the menu. But we were surprised that food was brought already plated. My vegetarian dish was a decent portion but my husband’s lamb dish seemed small. And the Naan was definitely over priced. The samosas were ok. I liked the veg better than the meat one which more fried. The flavors of some of the dishes were not what I expected. My husband ordered a lamb dish that was quite sweet. That was the first time I have ever had a sweet mani dish in an Indian restaurant. I ordered the Baingan Bharta (eggplant). It didn’t taste bad but it didn’t wow me. I wouldn’t order either dish again. It was convenient for our plans last weekend but I won’t drive out of my way to return.

    Lovely restaurant with heated patio. Was not expecting to chose the buffet lunch option but glad we did. A good variety and very tasty. The only drawback of buffet is you cannot customize heat/spiciness level. Overall a pleasant experience!

    Terrible service, only 2 waiters for the whole restaurant on Valentine’s Day. Took 45 minutes to get a menu after arriving and 45 more to get the check after requesting it. No heads up about this and no acknowledgement or apologies. Great food though.
