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.
It’s expensive for not a lot of food but it’s about the environment really.
Host was obnoxious. Was visibly disturbed about us adding one more to our reservation EVEN though I called to confirm and add, he said I did not..
Food was good, entrees were just okay. And $29 salad is ridiculous, they are all over $20.. absurd!
For the money.. not impressed. Entrees were just okay. We had salmon and a couple of pasta dishes.. not much taste.
Service was not great. Mostly ignored us but we got our meal on time..
Overall.. the Madison Ave location is obnoxious and so is its staff. And for those prices I expect good service.
Always satisfied with the high level of service and great quality of food here.
We went here with a party of six, which included two kids and everyone enjoyed.
Ordinarily we have recommended, but had a bad meal not worthy.
Today - different from other days host was nasty! Always had a great time!
Excellent customer service!!!!
They're always busy, so the noise level is deafening.
The food quality is slipping a bit as their prices are going up.
We love it here. Madison Ave location is stellar. Service is kind and on their A game. Food is delicious and take out patisserie is wonderful. It's an NYC 10!! I hope they keep up the great work. Madison Ave location better than other... :) Cheers
Service was not attuned to us. Kept on interrupting in the middle of conversations and clearing table at inopportune moments.
Checked our coats at the vestiaire, and they smelled of kitchen when we retrieved them.
Had nostalgic souvenirs of Sant Ambroeus from the time I was living in NY a few years ago. Has changed and not for the better
Ambiance always lovely, service great, food wonderfull
This is something special. The rare find of true excellence, across the board.
My daughter said it's the BEST Dover Sole in NYC ! She's 11!!
New years and my wife’s birthday
Haven’t been to Sant Ambroeus in probably 20 years (way before kids), so we remembered it as amazing. Celebrated my husband’s 50th birthday here on a recent trip to NYC...this time with our 3 kids (16, 14 and 11) in tow. Not much on the menu my kids would eat but they all found a basic pasta that would do (for $30+ each). So all in all, food was good, atmosphere was nice (not touristy) and service was excellent. My only complaint was that it was super pricey for what it was. I wouldn’t take my kids back, but I’d def go back with just my husband.
The food was not the best. The spaghetti with meat sauce tasted as though the meat was not washed or seasoned. I’ve honestly had better sauce at cheaper UES places such as UVA. The service was AWFUL. At a restaurant of this price point, I shouldn’t have to ask for bread and water. Overall the staff was inattentive, never checked in on us. Save your money and skip this place. The Olive Garden is probably a better Italian restaurant...hope that gives you an idea of how terrible Saint Ambroeus is
Just fantastic as always. Lovely especially during the holidays.
Accueil à revoir
Sublime perfection-such a treat!
Was told I couldn't bring in holiday gifts to exchange....by the manager. We were there to have a holiday luncheon....Really disappointed. Food was disappointing as well. PLUS it was very expensive.
We are unfamiliar with Manhattan restaurants but chose this by reason of close location to our hotel and Trip Advisorcommetns.We did not like the close tables very claustrophobic.We thought the recommended wine at $109 a bottle was excessive although enjoyable. We only chose the main course and there was a long wait.
My wife’s lasagna verde was very poor -tasteless and lacking the required number of layers of pasta.My sole was acceptable . I would not go again as the cost of the 2 course meal without wine was $110
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.
