Excellent service, great breakfast, lovely ambiance but way too overpriced which detracted a bit from the enjoyment.
Reliable standby for authentically and consistently delicious food. Can be a bit of a scene at lunch. Lots of face lifts and injected lips but a fun people watching experience. Don't plan on going if you are intending to get into a deep conversation, unless you don't mind asking your lunch mate to repeat what they said numerous times.
Always great for lunch
Always the service —- and the quality of the food —- both truly wondrous at St Ambroeus!
Elegant setting and excellent cuisine. Very good and attentive service. Well-heeled crowd.
Food was great, wine outstanding. Sat close to a celebrity which made it fun for myself and my daughters.
The food was excellent. Pasta dishes were incredible. Quiet atmosphere but fun nonetheless.
Feels like your walking into a restraurant in Milan
Our server was very attentive and considerate!
Overpriced for the quality of service and food. Wouldn’t return.
Great night out with girlfriends. We all loved it!
Food was incredible
Most pleasant place for dinner. A neighbor hood spot.
I was sent there by my sister in law who had to have their walnut gooey chocolate cookies overnighted from NYC to LA!! Don’t ask, but they helped me do it and in the mean time had an amazing lunch. Just like being in Rome. Pasta with clam sauce was perfect. Veal divine and the setvice was absolutely upper east side perfect!! I can’t wait to return.
I visit Sant Ambroeus whenever I am in the city.
My guests and I enjoyed everything about it...food, atmosphere, wine list, service .... can’t wait to go back !
Madison Avenue in Manhattan, but almost like being in Milan
Tiramisu. Everything on menu is gonna be good
Beautiful atmosphere & furniture!
Very good service, they care and remember!
Great food. Nice experience, as usual.
This is one of our very favorite restaurants in NY, & we come here many times whenever we’re here. They have excellent Minestrone,
homemade breads, great Dover sole, wonderful butter cookies, & the best cappuccinos ever. We love the vibe here!
This is consistently one of the best places to eat. The food is impeccable and nothing comes out to the table that isn't the perfect temperature. Desserts could be better though. Wish there was something on there that was as good as the rest of the menu.
The restaurant is very trendy and popular. Too bad I caught a terrible chill as I was under the air vents and had to be asked to move. My guest arrived and had a lot of bags and we put them on an adjacent empty chair next to me. The maître D asked us to move them and not to “advertise” bags !!!
Huh?!?! There were no people next to us! The ambience is nice and the food good. The attitude is a little imperious unfortunately!
Have been visiting the place for many years. It's wonderful!!!
Very East side vibe - only was too noisy. Pasta dishes and ice cream were good. Had the Brussel sprouts to start and they were so hard, a knife could not cut through them. Dishes are way over priced.
If you want to eat italian food, it is good. I do not like the attigude at Cipriani, so this is a good substitude. I recommend tagliatelle bolognese.
Delicious food and good service. Tried a linguine alle vongole, one of the best I have ever had. Suggest to book beforehand, otherwise need to queue for some time.
Outstanding Food, Ambiance and Service!!!
Not my best breakfast there. My guests didn’t like their meals. Server started off great but seemed to disappear. Charged for croissants that didn’t taste good. Not good value for the extreme expense.
Excelente para desayunar
Excellent and wonderful environment
It’s a good back up - the service and food didn’t match the more formal setting. The food was good. Not great (for NYC). Service was acceptable. Not outstanding. We had a mimosa and first attempt the champagne was flat. They corrected. Croissants are made with brioche and, in my opinion, too sweet. Portion size was good. Lettuce didn’t appear fresh. Toast was already cold on arrival and butter served cold. And while all tasted fine it just wasn’t stellar. I had hoped for more.
Very nice, genuinely fine-dining Italian restaurant. You definitely get what you pay for ambiance, service, and quality of food.
Time was between lunch and dinner. My friend wanted just coffee, but reading the employees' body language, I decided to order food. I enjoyed asparagus dish and cheese cake, but mozzarella cheese and prosciutto dish was disappointing. Next time I will order food that is cooked in their kitchen.
The waitress asked me if I wanted a drink so I asked if they could do a Boulevardier. It’s ok not knowing what cocktail that is, but after she went to ask the bartender if that was possible and came back and said they couldn’t do it without explaining why and suggesting to get a spritz instead. It was a good spritz (a little too sweet for my taste), but the bar definitely had whiskey and Campari, plus I already had that cocktail before at their location in Soho. I found the behavior sloppy and the waitress attitude and answer very condiscentent.
They could definitely work on their savior fair and friendliness.
On a bright note, risotto ai frutti di mare and pasta alle vongole were quite good.
Linguine con vongole excellent as usual. Linguine primavera too heavy. No need for shrimps.
Great experience! Good food, good place but the service was beyond expectations! Definitely we will recommend the place
A touch of elegant Milan in NYC. Pricey but worth a splurge.
A very nice place for REAL Italian food, although I had very high expectations over the FOCACCINE and was a little bit disappointed by the fact that they are actually made with a savory pastry dough. My quest for focaccia in the us is not over, yet. The place is extremely delightful though, I will definitely go back!
Having been to this restaurant many times before, I found the lack of charm at the door alarming.
