The attentive but not intrusive service, the delicious food and the wonderful atmosphere on the patio made for a memorable birthday celebration. It was nice to be back at The Ambassador.

We have been here several times before and were always very satisfied. This time, not so much.
First, we wanted to redeem a gift card that was a present to us, and the new owner said they do not accept them if purchased before the restaurant changed hands in December 2020. He explained that the previous owner received the money from those purchases and I should check with the prior owner (I did - Peerce's in the county. They say the funds went to the new owners with their purchase. Someone is not telling the truth!).
Anyway, the food. They no longer provide rice in bowls at the table so you can take the amount you want, they put a mound on each plate in the kitchen before bringing the plates (if you want some to take home don't eat it all). The portions for dinner meals such as chicken tikka masala are much less than before (too little for the price). My favorite dish, which was an apricot chicken (mish mishya?) is no longer on the menu. The kheer lacked pistachios, instead topped with some candied fruit pieces (it's much better with pistachios). The Kashmiri naan had the same candied fruit in it which turned the bread and slivered almonds pink.
Overall, we were disappointed.

The food was very good, as was the table service. The ambience was lovely on the terrace albeit a bit chilly. The problem came when we paid the bill. We gave the server our credit card. She in turn gave it to the manager to process. He came back to us and said we had not left a credit card. He was very defensive. We looked all over the restaurant to no avail. Our dinner companions paid for dinner. No apologies or offer for any compensation was offered. We had to immediately cancel the card and go through the hassle of notifying all our automated payments. It left a very bad taste in our mouth. To top it off, the manager found the lost card two days later! Very bad service on the part of the manager.

The Ambassador Restaurant has always been one of my faves! Was sad to see that the Sunday Bruch buffet was not there, but during times of COVID, is understandable. The owner said that if he can, he will re-launch the Sunday buffet in June or July.

This was not our first visit to the Ambassador, but it was by far the best. The evening was a celebration for our son and his fiancee, and the wait staff took very good care of us. I have a pepper allergy, so eating Indian cuisine is usually risky. The kitchen prepared a shrimp dish that was not only free of pepper, but delicious. The food that the rest of our party enjoyed was outstanding. The evening was chilly, but the patio with the fireplaces kept us comfortable in a room that was open to the outside. This setting was not only romantic, but compliant with COVID guidelines. We will definitely be back soon.

I’ve always loved the Ambassador. The staff is always gracious, the ambiance peaceful and pretty, and the food delicious. It’s definitely the best outdoor dining setting in Baltimore. They could perhaps do a bit more with their wine list (more choices, perhaps recommend pairings?) but this is only a suggestion, not a complaint. Dinner, lunch, or brunch buffet, this place never disappoints!!

The Ambassador has always been one of my favorite restaurants. I had forgotten that it was sold by the original owner and my previous experience there after the new owner took over wasn’t great. But I figured they had worked out the kinks. They did not. The food was good but not as good as it once was. The service was TERRIBLE. Our appetizers came quickly but they changed the recipe of the meat samosa and it’s not as good anymore. Then, it took a long while for our main courses. No one checked on us after our meal was served and our empty plates sat in front of us for 30 min before I flagged down a waiter. When our waiter didn’t come back, I had to ask for the dessert menu. They didn’t have a dessert menu but told us what they offered. It took an unusually long time for us to get one cup of coffee and one dessert (rice pudding—not as good as I remembered from previous visits under former ownership). I didn’t even have to say anything and they comped our coffee and dessert. I am not likely to return. I’d rather go to Peerce’s (now owned by former owners of Ambassador) which is always a delicious meal with exceptional service, the way The Ambassador used to be.

The waitress when asked if they had plastic utensils told me and my fiance' no, I got up and asked the owner if they had plastic utensils and he said yes, when the plastic utensils were received they had brown and black spots on them. It was a terrible experience.
