Was surprised to learn this neighborhood gem changed cuisine. Went after an annual event nearby. In the past the restaurant was packed- but not this year. Ambli Mexico was pretty empty. Maybe because it is trying to be something it shouldn’t. The food was a bit expensive:2 scallops for $12? When told a dish could be made not spicy it wasn’t. I will not return. I miss the old Ambli.

This used to be our favorite restaurant. The old adage "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" applies here. The menu has been changed and it is not even close to the quality of the old one.

Great food. We ordered the tasting menu ($30 option). The waiter chose great options and we had a very nice dinner. The tasting menu does not include dessert, which didn't bother us, but it was something that surprised us a bit.

My wife and I were huge, loyal fans of the "old" Ambli and now, if anything, we love the new version, Ambli Mexico, even more. Eight of us thoroughly enjoyed everything we had this past Saturday, starting with the Mexican grilled street corn and guacamole, moving on to the roasted duck spring rolls and tequila jalapeno shrimp, and finally to the roasted chicken and braised short ribs. The Meomi Pinot Noir was delicious, and the service was terrific as always. Terrific!!

I took my husband here for his birthday. He loves Mexican food. What an awesome place. We decided to do the tasting menu and our waiter asked what we do and do not like, any allergies and heat level. He chose all 6 courses and they were all incredible. They made you feel like regulars and family. This is such a gem of a restaurant.

Our server Josh suggested he order for us. What a grand dining journey we experienced. Each course was a taste sensation and extraordinary. Nothing like typical Mexican fare. For example, corn on the cob with cohita cheese, aioli and a dusting of some spice I have forgotten. My dinner guests and I were dazzled. I was concerned when Ambli converted this original location to Mexican cuisine. No need because it is as innovative as always. Exceptional!

Ricardo has created an original and out of this world menu. This is not your mother’s Mexican restaurant...this is Mexico City haute cuisine....the duck confit spring rolls to chicken mole to tequila mussels are the perfect bites. This Is a must go to dining experience... Jayne Russell

Amli is a great restaurant. Everything about the place is nice. One of the things that is impressive is the that there a lot of space between tables. They are not crowding the place which id s unusual for the high rent area. The food is exceptional. The service is better. If you like frozen margaritas you MUST have one. It is one of the best I have ever had.
