We just got back from Ambli Global Cuisine to celebrate our engagement and I could not have asked for a better experience all around. The ambiance is beautiful, the service is impeccable, and the food was beat by none. We left full and wanting more of everything. We felt like close friends being fed wonderful food by wonderful people. Their food ruined certain dishes for me because I know others will never live up. I have short ribs in my deep freezer I can now never cook because I will not do them justice. I 100% recommended the tasting menu with wine pairing if you want a memorable experience. (No pictures because we both really just wanted to enjoy the experience and it wasn't the time or place for phones).

What an amazing restaurant!!!
The owners are very involved in the restaurant, and it shows! The staff is very attentive, the food is excellent, they pay attention to details, and the tasting menus are really beautifully surprising! The chef does a great job elevating food from all parts of the world to a new level! I love going there, and the best part is that they make you feel so welcomed!!!

Highly, highly recommend Ambli Global. My husband and I went to celebrate his 39th birthday and went with their tasting menu and were not disappointed in the least. We were seated at a private sweetheart table, and each and every person of their staff wished my husband 'happy birthday' as well as 'congratulations' on me being pregnant (I had let them know some food preferences ahead of time due to this).

The entire evening was perfect, the food was incredible, and the service was top notch.

This was a surprisingly wonderful gem to find in Colorado Springs. The food was beautifully plated and had layers of deep and lovely texture and flavor. The cuisine was interesting and well combined. There is absolutely nothing boring to be found here. The lobster appetizer was fabulous and the cocktails were clearly made with fresh hand pressed juice then poured into scrumptious glassware. We enjoyed a tour of Japan and have no regrets from the bouje aperitif all the way to layered textures and flavors of dessert. Additionally, the wine pairing was lovely and very complimentary to the bites and did I mention the glassware as it was truly equally divine. It was a gorgeous, clean and completely glamorous ambiance filled with a warm and highly polished staff. We will be back… repeatedly, I’m sure. To Chef and Staff; Thank you so much for the beautiful experience as it was very sincerely appreciated and enjoyed. An overall ovation and 5 stars!!

We have fallen in love with not only the amazing Chef’s Tasting menus, taking us all over the world, but also the amazing staff! Ambli is a team and a family! We had top notch service in the bar area from Scott and Doug :) Scott served us the most amazing lobster shooters. If you visit, they are an absolute must!!!! Doug is a cocktail genius and we sipped on drinks that were divine!!!!! Natalie, Brian and Mark held down things in the dining room and they provided PERFECT service as always! They are a well oiled machine that works together and is spectacular! Everyone is so passionate and knowledgeable about all of the food and drinks they serve and truly care about quality service and that your experience is superb! Ambli is our favorite place; if you visit, you will quickly see why!

The food was mostly excellent - just not a lot of it.
I was told beforehand that it would be “a lot of food”.
We did not find that to be true. In fact, we came home still mildly hungry and found stuff to eat here to fill up to fully satisfy our appetites.
The timing off the tastings was off; they should have arrived sooner. We waited a a long time time between courses. Given that there are only three tasting course/cuisine options, it’s not necessarily a surprise that a certain appetizer or entree is coming next. The delay would not have been a huge problem if there was a bit more intimacy in the seating. However, the spacing between parties was a bit too close for our liking.
We had a very nice dining experience; just not a great one.

We had an excellent dining experience, as usual. The professionalism and attention to detail is outstanding. This is really one of the best fine dining experiences to be had in Colorado Springs. We enjoyed the East African/Indian tasting menu. The flavors, portions, and pairings were all excellent. I look forward to enjoying another region in the neat future!

Tasting menu is excellent especially because you get to try a great spread of food inspired by a region of the world. I love not having to think about it and getting to enjoy amazing dishes I would never think to order. The pairing of drinks is also fantastic creating such a wonderful experience.

As per usual, the ambiance and service was impeccable.

Tonight, however, the food was a terrible disappointment. While I understand the idea of tasting menus as a way for chefs to lead patrons through a story of a culture and food, the Mexican menu tonight was a miss. Flavors were muted and repeated through each dish. The first course needed more salt and acidity , as the pork belly was overcooked, chewy and flat. The sides of beets and cabbage were a highlight. However, the beef tongue was chewy and seemed disjointed with a presentation of bruschetta. Intermezzo was meant to be mango but raspberry showed up on the table. And dessert was meant to be strawberry but was platted as a poorly cooked churro.
For us, the restaurant is headed in the wrong direction. Poor seasoning, rushed presentation and poor cuts of meat. I previously loved yo mix flavors and interesting proteins of my choosing.
$ 500 for 3 people was poorly spent. We will not return as long as there are tasting menus without description ahead of time to make an informed decision as a dinner.

The food was excellent as was most of the service. When asked for a cocktail menu, the waiter was happy to do so. While looking at the drink menu, a woman stormed up to our table, did not identify herself and insisted on telling us loudly, multiple times, that the prices on the menu weren't correct. This set the tone for the rest of our meal. We were quite taken aback by her rudeness. Our waiter was excellent, as was the rest of the staff. The food was remarkable and wonderfully prepared.

We learned that Ambli had a new menu and we wanted to go on the journey. It did not disappoint! Each of the 3 focused regions sounded great and made for a hard decision but that was part of the experience. We had the Thailand menu and the flavors were extraordinary! We also opted for the drink pairing and it was perfectly done with another layer of deliciousness with each course.

The staff really makes this a complete experience as they truly want you to enjoy the food and drinks as much as they do.

With Ambli changing up the menu monthly, I'm going to need a new category in my budget. :)
