Cold weather in the dead of winter always makes us think "Amber Rose"!

Sauerkraut and wursts are always delicious and very apropo for the season! Chicken Kiev was "good but not great," according to my fellow-diner.

Always a good experience...a taste of Old North Dayton and its ethnic origins.

Unfortunately, your Hunter Schnitzel missed the mark. The gravy is supposed to be light brown and the Schnitzel crust should be also braun after frying. The gravy I was served was an unhealthy gray with clumps in it. Also, it tasted a little sour as if it is shared with the Sauerbraten serving. The "Schnitzel" was very strange looking, not sure how it was prepared but I didn't see a crust. As a German, I was very disappointed and I would suggest you take it off the menu as a Hunter Schnitzel. The "lemonade" was also not very good, I believe it was made from Country Time Lemonade, the powered drink mix. The restaurant itself was very nice looking and the service was good. Sorry, but I won't be coming again.

We have been looking for a local place to go to when we want to have a nice dining experience and this is it! With strong German traditions in our households, German food was a frequent flavor on our tables. I had yet to find any place that compared to the home cooking handed down by my great grandmother. The Amber Rose met and exceeded those expectations. The ambiance was very charming and Old World. From the China to the beer, to the Bier Cheese, and German Chocolate cake that melts in your mouth, this little Gem will have you coming back very, very soon

Restaurant environment had a lot of Character. Ambiance was nice. Did not care for the food. I had pork schnitzel. Food was overcooked, very heavy and tough with not very much flavor. Seemed like the oil needed to be changed in the fryer. I did not care for the Sauerkraut either. Jazz Music was very nice.

Amber Rose is a one-of-a-kind restraunt in the Dayton area. We love that it is located in one of the older neighborhoods. It is very unique and has a relaxing and could be romantic atmosphere . I feel the food offered on the menue is another unique thing for this restraunt . We have always enjoyed coming there, and do so at least twice a year, and on some special occasions. The people who work at this restraunt have always been very friendly and courteous . I would and have recommended your restraunt to many people. Oh and I might add that your offer during the month of October for the first beer being 10 cents is an added plus. Thank you for your years of service.

First visit,last visit. Very noisy,party on second floor. Beers very foamy,mixed drinks : out of Crown Royal, no Southern Comfort! Come on folks!! Martini ordered w/ Olives came without. Import Beers very pricey. Greek Salad was Great!
Cold Air from doorway makes it uncomfortable to to set near.
Outstanding service from the staff !

We went to Amber Rose because it was 10 cent beer month. The choices were good but not extensive. Hey, for a dime, that's ok! The food was a little disappointing. The peirogis were dry and bland. The cabbage rolls were more rice than meat. The potato soup tasted like one of those box scalloped potato mixes thinned out with milk. Overall, the food was just not that exciting.....honestly the food at Octoberfest at the Art Institute was better.

Pros: Clean restaurant, family friendly atmosphere, excellent service, excellent spaetzle, quick service, professional, warm food
Cons: We had 6 different meals and only one person was satisfied with the cabbage rolls. It seems the kitchen doesn't know about tasting their food before delivering to the customer. The sauerkraut was inedible because it was too sour/salty, the perogies are deep fried (a first), and the two men who selected the sauerbraten said it was too sour.
Summary: I've been going here since I was little and the quality cuisine of the cuisine has gone downhill. It's was definately not worth the $120 bill.

This was a family dinner to celebrate my parents anniversary. They had something different to meet everyone's individual taste, the service was great, and the food was exceptional for the price! This was a first time experience for me, but it won't be the last.

We enjoy the Amber Rose because the menu is full of the ethnic dishes that we grew up on. Our family heritage is German and Czech...need I say more!!!!!!! We celebrated Mom and Dad's 50th wedding anniversary at Amber Rose a few years back and it was a wonderful gift to give to them. They had recently moved to Dayton and it was a fantastic taste of home for them. We love the Amber Rose!!!!!!

Having lived in Germany for awhile, this is the only place in the area that you can find the most authentic German food.

We enjoyed our dinner at Amber Rose. The food was great, the service great and we loved the feel of the restaurant. Our son is a student at UD and we were looking for something other than the "chain restaurant" experience. Amber Rose is a neighborhood gem!

The food was delicious - even my picky teens cleared their plates! Great portions, delicious stuffed mushrooms, the home-made blue cheese dressing is to die for and the Bier cheese app was excellent.. Entrees far exceeded our expectations - very pleased! And our waitress was most amiable - she definitely added so much to our experience. Definitely check this place out.........

Our waitress, Aimee, was very cordial and friendly. The picture of Hofbrau we got had 4+ inches of head! but tasted good none the less. Both of us had the Jaegerschnitzel, which tasted good, but wasn't an outstanding rendition. The sauce was savory & the accompanying spaetzle was good. I don't know if we'd visit again since there are other choices. It was restaurant week, so it was full and bustling with people.

Noise level was extreme and discomforting. Bar selection is exceptional and enjoy European beer choices!!! Will come again and have recommended to friends and co-workers.

Amber Rose is a great place! Delicious food! You can't go wrong with the Hunter Schnitzel!

Nostalgic is the word for someone with my background. My background is Polish on my dad's side and I grew up around Germans so this food reminds me of home. Good enough that anyone would enjoy it though.
