About Sant Ambroeus - Madison Avenue
Shortly after the original Sant Ambroeus opened its doors in Milan in 1936, a devoted following emerged. This celebrated pasticceria and confetteria became the meeting place for the local intelligentsia, whether beginning their day with Sant Ambroeus’s legendary cappuccino and cornetto, savoring panini at lunch, or spending their evening enjoying refined cuisine in the restaurant’s elegant dining room.
We translated these old-world sensibilities of Sant Ambroeus to modern times, and imported our rich culinary traditions to New York. Each of our restaurants remains authentic to our Milanese origins, and we continue to serve our culturally inspired delectables in a casual yet elegant environment.

Sant Ambroeus - Madison Avenue Ratings and Reviews
Despite our getting the reservation totally wrong by 12 hours online i.e. 10:30 pm instead of 10:30 a.m. we were made very welcome and quite quickly found a table despite it being a very busy Sunday morning.
To explain the reason for the visit. It was supposed to be and so it turned out, to be a treat for a close friend who was recently bereaved, in which case, our booking error would have been a little more serious than would normally be the case. In the event there was little or no fuss and I suspect our friend in fact hardly knew there was an issue, which was to the restaurants great credit. The subsequent service service was excellent and expeditious.
The food was of the highest standard erring towards comfort rather than innovative but that's what we chose 'Eggs Benedict' etc and it was a brunch after all.
'People watching' was the only slight disappointment. We had promised our friend there was bound to be someone she recognised from the media performing arts etc etc but sadly not on this occasion which in my experience is unusual, maybe that's the Sunday morning effect.
It set out to be a treat for a friend and was in fact a treat for all of us.
Thank You for a very enjoyable morning
P.S. A slight incongruity I/we noted asking for photographs and banning 'electronic devices' which these days is as likely to succeed as Canute stopping the tide coming in so no photos.
I always think of this restaurant when I come into the city and want to do a special get together with my son. We began with my treating him: our sipping prosecco together at lunch . He was 22. This week marks a progression: his treating me and his fiance to breakfast before their busy business day .
Breakfast was delicious:
We all had scrambled eggs with tomatos, parmesan, tiny potatos , wonderful toast and jams
and plentiful coffee. The quiet table I requested was reserved and ready for us.
Service was gracious as always, and the ambiance beyond lovely. I highly
I used to love this place, but it has gone down hill. In the middle of summer they are boasting Kumato tomatoes on their menu, when we're ripe for heirlooms. They advertised burrata, but it was mozzarella. Finally, both my date and I got sick that evening at the same time. Don't think I'll be coming back.
I ordered a Kale salad. The waiter asked if I wanted to add protein, so I said tuna would be nice. He brought me my kale salad, and on the side was a plate with canned tuna that was basically just chucked straight out of the can. In a restaurant of the caliber I would expect at least some olive oil and salt on the tuna. It looked disgusting. Like cat food. The kale salad was OK.
Sant Ambroeus is like a home away from home if you had an excellent personal chef and gracious service staff! The food is delicious, fresh, and inventive, and the atmosphere is elegant but comfortable. The wine list won't disappoint, with bottles that are affordable and those that are a splurge. The welcome here from each employee is particularly special, and coming back to Sant Ambroeus is a joy each time... Happy dining!
Sant Ambroeus never disappoints with its fresh salads, perfectly dressed, and the best cappuccino in town. Always feel like I'm in a European capital not just because of the excellent service but the number of languages being spoken throughout the dining room.
