Good food and nice ambiance in a location crowded with competition. The service was a little disappointing, especially given that there were very few patrons when I went, but I would still recommend it overall.

This was an OK Chinese meal. The Dim Sum sampler was good enough and the Flounder Clay Pot was unusual and tasty.

Other dinner's recommendations to sit upstairs is a "must do". While I enjoyed my meal, it was nothing special warranting a return visit.

Food was good and always consistent. My only compliant is the waitress accidentally poured water into my beer glass ( still half a glass of beer left). She was lovely and apologized and then brought me another beer. She charged me for the other beer! I didn't realize it until I left but I was pretty angry about that.

Amber is a delightful restaurant. All of its locations are good, but I like the decor of this particular one and there is a great ambiance in the space as well. Also, the staff are friendly, the prices are great and the food is really good. I've been to a lot of thai places, but Amber keeps me coming back over and over again.

Food is good. Make sure you sit upstairs. It is much more pleasant. Also, make sure they check in your reservation. Twice when I have come, they have marked me as a no-show even though I told them I had a reservation.

We live in the neighborhood and hadn't been to Amber for a while. We always liked it, so we decided to come in. There was some sort of rowdy party going on at the bar while we ate. I don't think they should have seated anyone downstairs. My husband and I could barely hear each other speak. He kept getting bumped by rowdy college kids.

It wasn't their fault really, but they shouldn't have had dinner guests sitting there. I will come back and try again because their staff is so nice and friendly and the food is good, but will ask to be seated upstairs.

Amber should also be very proud of their staff. Few restaurants have such nice people working for them.

What a wonderful find! The food was delicious and presented beautifully. The setting was fabulous with exposed brick walls, and the service was very attentive. A perfect night out!

Everything was fine. Nothing was amazing. It was really, really cold though

The sushi was excellent. The waiter was a bit slow and brought the food out before the cocktails we ordered which was a little weird. We also had very drunk and rowdy group sit next to us which made it not as pleasant, but that's not the restaurant's fault.
