    My wife and I had a wonderful experience at Ambra. The service was excellent and all dishes were explained to us in detail as they were brought out. The food was delicious and not over the top. We highly recommend trying Ambra for a special night out!

    Waiter was very helpful. I don’t like the the unisex restroom. Somewhat shocking having a young woman directing men in the restroom.

    My waiter only spoke Spanish, which I don’t speak, so the service was awkward to say the least. I’ve been here many times and love the food but this was a major turn off for me. It’s important to be able to communicate with your waiter and that’s not possible with such a language barrier.

    Delicious food! Great server attentive but not interruptive. High tables for 2 at bar are uncomfortable with little back support. Requested a regular height table or booth but was never given a new table by hosts.

    My husband and I visited from Houston, we found this restaurant. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious. Steak was cooked to perfection. The waiter was so wonderful at explaining every dish we ordered to us. Overall a great experience.
