Don't be fooled like we were. You are still able to make a reservation on Open Table even though this restaurant is permanently CLOSED. Owners need to update information on all social media outlets and Open Table.

Don't let the strip mall location fool you. It doesn't look like much on the outside but inside you will find great service, great food and a nice atmosphere. This was a pleasant surprise for us while visiting Denver for the afternoon. I can see why this place is so highly rated. All the dishes were great.

Our server was beyond incredible, and the other's helping him were also great. This was greatest, most genuine, serving experience I've ever had. Great job to Doug (?), and the rest of the team!

Steven was an amazing server! My boyfriend and I had the most amazing experience trying their tasting menu. Each dish was a surprise and everything tasted SO rich and fresh, including the margaritas. We had 4 each...Steven took such good care of us and let us stay for a long time just enjoying amazing conversation and enjoying the ambiance. We can’t wait to go back! Thanks so much!

WHOA. Just do yourself a favor and order the sampler so you can taste for yourself that every dish is exceptionally delicious. We came for the Paella and left with Ambli as our new favorite restaurant.

Ambli Mexico is always such a great environment. The food is always fantastic. I recommend going with the tasting menu, you will get more than enough food and will get to try several things on the menu. I’ve never been disappointed by the tasting menu!!

My boyfriend and I decided to try the tasting menu. Definitely a great choice!! Everything was SOO yummy. We did several tastings while in Denver and this was 100% the best one. Our waiter was amazing and we even had the chance to meet the owners father. It was an amazing experience and we will definitely be back if we ever make it to Denver again!

We go to the Leetsdale location about once a week. We love that they're constantly refreshing the menu. Their meats in their dishes are phenomenal and the sauces are unique. They're doing a great job with social distancing and the way the restaurant is set up, their booths are a generous size, along with the outdoor seating.

Great appetizers and drinks.
The mole was way too hot for me,I should have asked earlier for something that could be added to cool it down.
Also the caramel flan tasted like peanut butter which was disappointing.
Great service and ambiance

We are in the middle of a pandemic and this was one of the best treats I've had in a long while. The staff was extremely accommodating of our needs (first we wanted to be outside and then we changed our minds because there were not many people inside).
The food was OUTSTANDING (pleasing to the palate and the eyes)! Thank you!

As you arrive you arrive you are immediately greeted. In these times, I always make reservations. The decor is minimalist with pops of color very pleasant. The music in the background is popular and a combination of Latin. The servers operate a little differently. You of course have your main server. You also have the backup of the rest of the staff supporting. It is a wonderful system.

Now to the food! It is going to knock your socks off. We have eaten here twice. We have only eaten one menu item both times. That is the lobster shooters. Crunchy and creamy meet in shot with a hint of spice. A must!!

The tacos!!!! I am from Texas land of tacos. These topped any taco I have ever had. You must dip them!!!

The pear salad. Forgive me it has a more complicated name on the menu but I can't remember what it was. Pear slices, orange slices, candied pecans, blue cheese crumble, a light dressing over arugula so refreshing. We had it between the shooters and the tacos. It broke up the flavors so we could appreciate each one.

We finished the dinner with Kuku. Of course there is more that name as well. It was a coconut curry, chicken breast, and rice. Not too spicy but it was so full of flavor. We ordered desert to go.

Really outstanding food. Exciting ! ! When we go out to eat, we look for something 'unique' . . . and GOOD, and this place filled the bill. Don't let the 'Mexico' in their name fool you; this isn't burritos and tacos, it's top of the line gourmet !

This was our first experience at Ambli Mexico (we've been to the DTC location). We will definitely be back! The street corn had a bit too much aoili and the bread pudding was a little over cooked, but the tacos were DELISH, as we the brussels sprouts and empanadas. Our drinks were also excellent.
