The food was Amazing! Best food I've had since moving from L.A.!!! The manager was very nice and came up to speak to us...an added bonus!
Dinner was delicious and I really like the ambience.
Great food and service. Generous portions. Fresh food!
Nothing really negative on this visit. Everything was certainly acceptable just not outstanding. Would like to give a review other than OK, but not this time.
From now on, this place will be my go-to for Italian and seafood. Their food is homemade and the restaurant is family owned. And you can really tell that love goes into their food. It's truly the best pasta I've had in Indiana (or maybe even the United States) and their seafood is incredible...which is hard to find in Indiana.
Excellent food and great service
Second time dining here; very consistent high-quality pasta dishes and service. Unique and diverse wine list. Casual enough for large groups but elegant enough for a nice romantic evening. Not a big place, so the noise level is very contained and the service is excellent.
Great meal all around - Lexie was great! Can't wait to go back and try another amazing menu item. Thank you!
Love the Mare seafood pasta and the arugula salad! Excellent Italian food. The restaurant can be cold in the winter, depending on what table you have.
Ambrosia is one of our favorites. The food, service, ambiance, noise level, wine list, and cocktails are spot on. We had had a shrimp appetizer and the calamari. Both great. The calamari was my favorite. Fresh, lightly breaded and cooked to perfection. The arugula salad had a bright lemony vinegrette and was topped with a generous amount of shaved parmesan. We had the mushroom lasagna special and the gnocci. Both fantastic. The wine reccommendation was also very good. Ambrosia is perfect for dinner with friends, a date, special occassion, or any day of the week.
Excellent food and service. Came for a holiday dinner after a show at Clowes. We arrived early but were seated immediately. Service was attentive but not intrusive. The food was excellent. Highly recommend Ambrosia.
Eat there once a month at least. Never had a bad experience. Love it!!!
This was our first visit to Ambrosia, and we will return. The food was excellent - above the typical Italian restaurant. The service was prompt and attentive. The only negative is the lack of sufficient parking, which can't really be helped in that location.
Excellent food... more rustic in ambiance... great for casual get together...al dente pasta well prepared. .. definitely recommended....
Food was great, service was decent, and the parking lot could use some work.
Absolutely outstanding all around. Wish we would have discovered this hidden treasure years ago.
Excellent dinner, service was very good. The meals came in timely manner. Definitely would come again.
Amazing food & great service! We were there early in the evening so the noise wasn’t a problem. Great place to get dinner before a show at Clowes.
great food, thanks. a great place for a birthday dinner
This is the best Italian restaurant in Indy! Authentic and delicious. It’s a new favorite. We loved the calamari and the tiramisu!! The entrees we had were perfect. My only critique would be the music. It was too hip and upbeat for the atmosphere to me. Also the tables are too close together for private conversation. But other than that it was amazing!
Birthday dinner for mom and son. Our server, David, was awesome! Hope we can have the pleasure of having him again! Food was excellent!
Great atmosphere and service with food to match.
Food was delicious. Generous wine pour. Restaurant was a little noisy.
I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet Ambrosia was this time. When it opened it was horribly noisy. We had a lovely meal, a quiet conversation and good service. Thanks
We meet family members for a dinner every two weeks so we can catch up and enjoy locally owned independent restaurants. Ambrosia was the perfect spot for our get-together! The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We can now highly recommend the lasagna, erbette (poached salmon) and the brodetto (seafood stew). We will definitely be back soon!
Extremely loud - they need to install sound panels in the ceiling or something. Otherwise good - wine list was great.
Thank you very much to Ambrosia and their staff for a memorable evening out with our friends. Service staff were helpful, knowledgeable, and set a great pace for our dining experience. Their wine selection paired very well with the variety of delicious appetizers and main courses our party enjoyed. Each of our couples split a tiramisu, which is not to be overlooked. Be sure to save a little room!
We came here to find a good value in Italian food. Which is a category that seems to be lacking in Indianapolis. Ambrosia surpassed our expectations. It was sheer perfection; from the food to the service. Our server was very knowledgeable with a great attitude. To start, we had a Muscle special app that had me wanting to chug the broth. Next, I had the Bolognese and my girlfriend had the Panna. Both dishes were delicious. The pasta was the star of the dish. It had great texture and was ratio’d perfect with the sauce. Lastly, we finished our meal with the Lemon Sorbet (must) and Tiramisu (must). Overall, this meal was of great value and exceeds the value of its competition.

My wife and I tried Ambrosia for the first time for our anniversary. The menu was excellent, and we enjoyed an appetizer, salad, entrees, and dessert. While we went on a Wednesday, and the place was maybe 1/3 full, we appreciated the service and attention of the staff. We were not rushed, and the staff provided the appropriate amount of time between courses. I don’t know if the same thing would happen on a busy Friday/Saturday, but it made our anniversary dinner even more special.
I absolutely love Ambrosia! I love promoting small and local business but at the same time, I don’t want everyone to know of our favorite little gem 😉
The experience was very underwhelming. The server had been there for 2 weeks and frankly very ill-prepared to be a server. She literally read us the specials with NO knowledge of the specialties. She was terrible. No one other than the server came by to check on us. The food was subpar. I had the veal and it was tough, the beans were cold. My wife had the lasagna. It looked great but was pretty bland. The atmosphere was okay and noise level moderate. For the price the experience was terrible. I generally want to give restaurants another try but in this case I have no compelling reason to go back.
Amazing food every time we go! We come up from louisville several times a year just to go here!
Unfortunately, three strikes: 1) awkward, unpleasant lighting (unimaginable for a restaurant that has been described as romantic; may be better in the bar), 2) noise (probably too many hard surfaces, loud public feel, not date-like), 3) little kids disrupting, playing hide-and-seek (couldn't believe that waitstaff and hostess observed but just smiled as if totally acceptable). Other detractors include no tablecloth and one of the two bathrooms out-of-order. Consequently, I do not agree with the "Good for a Date" rating unless one's date is not expecting a romantic setting. Better described as upscale family restaurant with attractive bar. The upside is that the food is very good.
Our favorite Italian restaurant by a long way! We had a lovely corner table, tucked out of the way and enjoyed great service from Graham. We will be back!
Great Italian food, authentic, good sevice. Will return often.
Delicious food, lovely surroundings!
The restaurant had nice decor and layout. The staff was friendly. The food was a bit slow for what we ordered but was good. All in all, it was a solidly decent experience.
Loved every bit! She offered to bring dessert for my birthday.........but who could eat dessert??!?!
Great food great service great ambience. Great place for a date or for meeting friends
