The waitress sold us on the idea of the chefs choice automatic pairings. We agreed that it sounded like a good option but indicated from the beginning we did not necessarily want all seafood, did want brussel sprouts and had time constraints with a show we were seeing.

The food was good but she duplicated dishes, not the point of a pairing, DID NOT give us the brussel sprouts, and completely ignored our time constraints. We had to cut off the meal without the final course.

The food was good but she obviously did not know what she was doing.

My husband and I celebrated Valentine day at Ambli DTC. We chose the Chef's selection with wine pairings. The French champagne to apertif complimented each dishes. Our taste buds were amazed and tantalized with the flavors in the lobster shooters, beef tartare, ahi tuna slightly seared and beef tenderloins dishes. It was my husband first time there and he was very pleased with the meal. A very romantic evening! There was live music too and the band there last night was fantastic.

This was such a nice evening!! Everything we ordered was very very good. Our waiter was super - very pleasant experience!! Good value for food. Love this place for apps and drinks but really great for dinner too. I think there should be a greater variety of desserts as it was my friends birthday but overall really very good!

Novel dishes and extremely helpful and patient waitstaff. We elected to let the restaurant staff both select the courses and the wine pairings. Everything was perfectly matched and was exceptional.

Simply one of the most delicious and unpredictable food and drink menus we've come across.

Started out a little strange - walked in at 5:00 for a 5:15 reservation. The first thing the folks at the host stand said to us was, "we have another reservation for your table at 7:15 so you'll have to be done by then."
Our response was, "Hi! How are you?" really not a big deal - we did say we wanted to have a cocktail at the bar first so we're certain they just wanted to make sure we didn't wait until 545 to go to our table.
The place is amazing. Everyone (including the host team) was friendly and attentive.
Steve, our server, is a true pro's pro. - Perfectly pairing various wines with entrees he selected for us. He knew exactly when to check in on us - we never felt overwhelmed or ignored. We will request him when we go back and we will go back.

If you haven't eaten here yet, then get a reservation soon and go! We love this restaurant; they offer comp. valet parking (area is busy); you are greeted immediately by warm and pleasant hostess staff; you often see the owner there and accessible. We dined with our kids - sort of a "celebration dinner" and we very much enjoyed the "Chef's Tasting and wine pairing" menu. Ambli expertly structured our dinner with a wide variety of selections; they serve a diverse selection of proteins and include vegetarian options as well, there is something for everyone; the flavors are amazing - this is NOT formula chain food cooking - it has imagination, is bold, subtle and varied by the diversity of the dishes. GO … eat, enjoy awesome wine and the ambiance (Friday nighty they have the best live music to listen to while dining - not overpowering, but beautiful). Hope you are served by the best waiter there … big shout out to Joe - he knows what he's doing and he cares about his customers!

Our waitress was amazing. We ordered the 6-8 course tasting menu and left it to her to bring us out our plates. Every 20 minutes or so she bought out a few new things. ALL were amazing. It was a great experience and a really nice way to linger and talk with another person without rushing through dinner.

Food was delicious and very inventive. However, the portions were very small and the chicken was not tender as advertised. Highly recommend the Mongolian Beef.

Wow - why have I not eaten here more often!? We had an amazing experience, enjoying the tasting menu with the upgraded paired wine option. Seriously - I enjoyed each and every morsel on top of every sip of wine. If I had to pick a favorite, it would either be the Mexico City Filet or the Scallop Pad Thai or well, pretty much everything we had. William, the sommelier, added to the experience with back stories on the wines, along with being excited to share it with us. One of the owners, Kelly, provided a friendly and fun personal touch that made this one of my favorite nights out in a long time - and it was a Wednesday!

A friend took me here for my birthday. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing, and it was amazing. Our server, Dylan, was also terrific, and was very knowledgeable about the wines he selected for with our meal. The space is also beautiful, and even though it was nearly full, it was quiet enough for us to have great conversation.

We had an early dinner planned at 5:45, Happy Hour was hopping. I didn’t see any seats open at the bar. The host was nice enough to grab me a couple drinks while we waited for friends to arrive. The food was delicious! Enjoyed dishes from Africa, Asia and Mexico, all prepared to perfection! Will become a regular when they open in Colorado Springs.

Our server Katie was absolutely wonderful! She had plenty of experience to guide us through the tasting menu. She made sure our drinks were constantly filled and made sure that our trip through the tasting menu was exactly what we needed and every bite was perfect! We came here for my 30th birthday and it was everything I wanted it to be! I will definitely be coming back and asking for her again. We were a party of 3 And she was like our Fourth without being too over bearing and sharing all Of our jokes and having a great time with us. We will be back because of her!

First time for us at this location and first time ever for 4 others. We all had the $40/per person tasting menu, which we all raved about. Cocktails were excellent and we had several bottles of a terrific, well priced Rioja that we all shared

Sadly, the quality of the food has significantly decreased. Brussel sprouts were drenched in oil and charred and curry chicken was served with a bowl of cold, undercooked white rice. Lobster shooters were still great. Ambiance is lovely but without an improvement to the food quality, I’ll just stick with having a drink in the bar.

We have been here several times, including just a few days ago at Christmas Eve. Used to be one of our favorite restaurants, with different takes on Mediterranean flavors and tastes. However, this last visit might be our last, as the menu has changed (for the shorter, and for the worst). The steak & fig flatbread is out, and so was their best chicken dish whose name I can't unfortunately remember, but it was also accompanied by shishito peppers and amazing french fries with great spices. The server explained that the menu was changed because some of the late night guests complained of chicken being underdone, and so they changed the menu to make it easier. I am thinking they should have changed out the cooks instead of the menu. The filet mignon entree and the mongolian beef entree were poor new substitutes for the prior entrees, with lots of beans and rice, but not a lot of actual beef. I'm all for restaurants trying to be current and not get stale, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Not sure we will be back.

The food was great, but the service was terrible. There weren't enough menus available for our table when we sat down, and the server and our food was incredibly slow. This was a business lunch and everyone only had an hour available, but the lunch ended up taking about an hour and 45 minutes which irritated everyone. I will not return for a business lunch.

The food at Ambli is sublime, interesting and novel without being experimental. The filet was cooked perfectly and served with beautifully crafted Mexican flavors.

Do! Not! Miss!The Lobster Shooters! Sweet mercy they were delicious! The red coconut curry was a superb foil for the lobster wonton. Order two per person. One will simply leave you longing wistfully for a second.

The service was a tad slow. The staff was attentive enough but it took 15 min to get a cocktail. Only one star down. Not enough of a delay for true concern. I'm willing to concede they might have been lightly staffed this evening.

The sommelier knew how to read a table. Trust him to recommend a great glass of wine!

A bit noisy as there was a business event going on in the front area. Should have doors between the dining space & front area that could be closed to cut down on the noise for the dinners in such events.
