Italian
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.

The bartender for the life of him couldn’t make a proper Manhattan and the food was not worth the price tag. Best thing I wound up eating was the foccacia bread they brought out and gelato for dessert.

The food was absolutely amazing! I had the Carbonara, and it was hands down the best Carbonara I've ever had. It was extremely rich, however, and I probably should have either shared it, or ordered a salad to temper the fat. There was a lot of wait staff, who seemed to checking our needs were met, but didn't refill my husband's iced tea readily, and we finally had to request a bill. They were very professional and pleasant. Overall, a delightful experience, and a place I would absolutely recommend.

Took my nephew for his last night in NY before he flew back to London. Great food as always - he LOVED the carbonara and we loved the Pollo. Large portions meant we did take a lot home!
I always trust this restaurant for just lovely civilised dining. Love the wait staff, love the maitre d’ and ALL THE FANTASTIC FOOD. It is not cheap but it’s very cheerful

My score on the ambience was a bit low because the lighting was fairly bright for about the first half hour that we were there. With the lights dimmed I give it 5 Stars! Otherwise, delightful as always

This is a place where I always feel pretty sure I am getting “real” food and outstanding service. Pricey - I caution my friends for sticker shock - but being from Atlanta it is not a place we frequent.

Salad was ok. The service was great and very attentative. Expensive salad for the output. I like their breakfast much better than lunch. Although others had very fresh pasta and looked delicious.

Good enough food, but OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive. In fact, the exorbitant prices made the food disappointing because I was expecting exceptional and I got average.

As always my trips to the city include at least one stop at Sant Ambroeus...Madison Ave. This trip was no exception, Pierre and I enjoyed a delicious lunch of Melanzane ala Parmigiana, Linguine Vongole and , and the special fish of the day, Pesce del Giorno with a perfect version of puttanesca sauce....accompanied with the bread that we can't wait to have and a nice crisp Meroi Sauvignon. As difficult as it was we passed on dessert this time, although the dessert tray is always incredible. Always greeted with a smile by Florin, and the service is always consistent, helpful and friendly. Tetyana took great care of us. Looking forward to my next visit and another wonderful experience at Sant Ambroeus!

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing.
