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
Last night on NYE, the moment we sat down, three different waiters came rushing us to take our order. We didn’t even have the chance to look at the menu instead we were busy asking them for their courtesy of at least 5’ alone with the menus-unthinkable to have to consider that a luxury! It was very obvious that they wanted us out as soon as possible so they could leave for the night, even though we had a reservation. We were wondering why such poor treatment since the restaurant is open and took our reservation. Such a pity because we wanted to select a nice bottle of champagne and that behavior put us off. We have never been treated as poorly anywhere all these years dining out in NYC.
Then the food was beyond mediocre for the price. I wouldn’t recommend the place for a special occasion but stick to their cafe portion.
Expensive, but impeccable service, amazing quality of food, and overall wonderful experience. We were seated quickly and our food did not take long to get at all, even during busy lunch time. You MUST get one of their desserts. We got the Sant Ambroeus chocolate cake and napoleon to go and oh my goodness we’ve never had better.
Nice place and good food. Nice welcome and lovely table. On the wrong side we didn’t like being bullied by the waiters clearing away our table while we were not finished. I litterally had to grab my teapot to finish my tea. And we had only been there for 40 minute, not three hours.
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
