Sant Ambroeus - Madison Avenue
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.
Sublime. I enjoyed the lasagne verde and my guest had the ravioli special. Superb suggestion of a wine pairing. I love this restaurant.
This is one of my favorites. Great everything. Elegant. International. Chic.
Brought out the wrong dish and then offered me a different dish instead while they made my original dish - then charged me for both.
As ST A is always - simply delicious and amazing service.
Excellent in every aspect. You get what you pay for superb service, food, ambiance. Not a bargain. However, I am always delighted whenever I go to SA.
My step-mother and I came in for lunch. There's a very pleasant ambiance here, and (at least at lunchtime) the noise level is acceptable. The menu is beautifully created: the choices are very interesting and it's pretty hard to make a decision. Service is polite yet professional, and the manager and waitstaff are well-informed about the details of each dish. My step-mother ordered Vitello Tonnato, a dish that's difficult to find outside of Italy (at least done the right way), and it arrived beautifully presented and was simply delicious. My taste of it reminded me of the one time I had it in Lucca. I ordered an interesting salad of shaved artichokes, Parmesan, and several more ingredients I like. This is where my "beef" comes in: our waitperson asked if I would like a little chicken or salmon in it, and I thought that sounded good, so I agreed to some chicken. What he didn't tell me was that it would cost me an additional $15 for 6 or 8 thinly sliced pieces of grilled chicken. I will also say that while the food is delicious, it is quite pricey. I had an Aperol Spritz, my salad (with the ritzy chicken) and a cup of coffee. With tax and tip: $88. That's A LOT for lunch.
Amazing food and service, you get what you pay for.
Always a great meal!
Occasion was an after Met Sunday lunch with a favorite niece. Once you get past the all too serious Maitre d’ the experience is fun and relaxing due to a nice mix of casual and formal. The wait staff are all knowledgeable, gracious and correct. A kale and burrata salad was perfection. Risotto and spaghetti al olio were fine. The desserts are not to be missed as well as the bread assortment.
My favorites are the pastas and veal Milanese.
Excellent food, excellent service, feels like Italy
Friendly neighbor restaurant , excelente service .
Excellent as usual. They always take good care of me and my little plus one :-).
Love this place , love the food, love the service
Amazing! I love Sant Ambroeus always very good, nice service and amazing food
This is the first time ever service was off. Food was great.
Too expensive for the type of food they serve.
Just one course is around 70$ and ir was pasta bolognese
Always dine at this restaurant when in NYC. Generally a good meal, and a upscale price. Can be crowded at times, and the reception is not always the best at the front door. But has a lot of regulars and if in the area I would recomend. This time was not one of the best visits, probably due to the time...
Much Fun all around
I love this place and specially their Avocado toast with their organic poached eggs on the top.
The best avocado toast i ever had. Also, the quality is very consistent, the service is impeccable. The only down side is the prices that are not very friendly:-(.
Excelente atención y menú
As previously over the years, we enjoyed our meal and licked the plate. It's a busy upper East Side restaurant with very delicious food, close quarters, noise and bustle, but worth the good meal we had!
Welcoming & accomodating as always; I am from Chicago so a neighborhood spot us always welcomed!!!
We went for breakfast with out of town friends. The food was excellent. Best omelette I have had. Delivery of coffee was problematic. Our guests enjoyed the food and the comfort of the restaurant and would certainly go again as would we. I think the restaurant was at capacity which strained the wait staff to be at the top of their game. For a restaurant of this caliber, service should be more attentive.
I love this place. It’s a very special place. I think it has a lot to do with how wonderful the staff is. The service is phenomenal. I live out of town and every time I come I am welcomed with smiles, pleasant greetings and excellent customer service by all employees. They have the best drink choices whether you are looking for non alcoholic or alcoholic. The food is always consistently really good as well. For some reason it took a little longer than usual to get our bill but I’m sure they were swamped. I always love coming here with my friends who have never been. I will definitely be back!
I was not impressed at all !!! Very loud the food only ok for the price I would not racomend it !
Excellent service and food!
Fabulous breakfasts. Yummy gelato. One of our favorite places.
Consistently outstanding from extraordinary lattes to wonderful service and food. Have enjoyed breakfast and lunches and all were superb. Looking forward to dinner here. Some might consider expensive, here you are getting everything you pay for and then some.
Gracious service and great meal.
Absolutely classic Upper East Side spot with a mixture of traditional and creative Italian food. Like a trip to Milan for dinner with a small group of your favorite Wall Street insiders.
Food is good. A little taste of Italy on Madison Ave. The staff is excellent. The price however is outrageous! Took my son for breakfast and basically had very nice eggs and tea for $75!
Wonderful Italian food, great attentive service. Will go again, but just don't order coffee. I expect $18-20 for drinks anywhere, but $7.50 for coffee? No. Even though they call it a pot.
They will not give us credit for open table if desired eat at The bar. Hostess staff is horrible. Great place but staff at front of house is horrible. Food great, but management horrible
The staff learns your name and remembers who you are and are helpful and will accommodate you very swiftly. They always remember my favorite spot to sit. After a few times there you feel like family and amongst friends.
Absolutely beautiful and food was amazing as always always such a treat
My all time favorite in NYC. The service is great, the food is amazing and it is not overpriced
I ordered the eggs benedict and they were on par with a regular diner.
Absolutely yummy delicious pasta! Not to be missed mango sorbet!
It was our last meal in NY. I had been there before and carried a good memory of it. I could trust it. It was delicious. The food, the service snd the smbiance
