    I haven't been to Amber in a while, and I must say I like the new look. It makes it a lot more spacious, with an airy vibe and open spaces. It makes it look more inviting, although I must admit the bamboo that split the space was super cute and I wish it was still there. That being said, the menu is still the same, the staff is still as friendly as ever and the sushi station is still present. The food tastes great, the shumai is super fresh and I love their pineapple fried rice. Their sizzling hot plates are also really good. They have great service so I will be back again soon.

    At Amber, the food is consistently excellent and the service is terrific. The sashimi is always fresh and the portions are substantial which is much appreciated. The shumai, the miso soup, the teriyaki dishes - all are excellent. As for the service, we are always greeted with a smile and made to feel welcome. Marshall, one of the servers, is especially great. He is knowledgeable, responsive, professional, friendly, and helpful. In all, dining at Amber is always enjoyable and we intend to keep going there regularly.

    What a fantastic vibe at Amber! I love a sushi environment that's contemporarily adorned but comfortable, with real candles and TVs for catching a game—or in the case of last night, the NBA draft. When the weather's nice, the space opens in many ways to become delightfully airy. The sushi and service are as alluring as the atmosphere, with reasonable prices for an all-around excellent value. My only complaint is that a side of steamed veggies requires a full entree.

    Enjoy this local sushi restaurant, however, the service on our last visit was NOT GOOD! We were only 1 of 2 tables in the restaurant and everything took FOREVER. The table next to us ended up sending part of their order back as it took so long and then asked for their check and left, quite disappointed. This is our neighborhood sushi place, so hopefully, this was just an odd/off night for them.

    Best appetizers of this kind on UES. Usually the sushi is amazing but for the first time in the so many times we have been there I was disappointed. The sushi was cut thicker than usual which made it chewy and uncomfortable. Fresh sushi has been the hallmark of Amber’s menu but this batch didn’t quite work for me.

    Decent Japanese on the upper east side. Not the best, but certainly not the worst. Stick with appetizers and hot dishes. The rolls are not great all the time and the sushi is cut very, very thin and many times not too flavorful.

    My friend and I enjoyed a selection of appetizers - duck, spring rolls, scallion pancake, shrimp, etc. - for dinner before going to see a performance at a nearby community theatre. I was disappointed in the slow service; other than that, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable and we enjoyed our meal.
