Sant Ambroeus - West Village
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.
Perfect! And the complimentary desert always a plus here
Delightful, comfortable and friendly, all enjoyed meal and experience
Overall the food is the only saving grace of this place. Serious and significant amount of waiting time even if you have a confirmed reservation. It’s a very small restaurant and they overbook the place. Slow service and staff isn’t very friendly. If you are looking for a relaxed dinner without any hassle.. this isn’t the place.
Excellent service, food was great, presentation is great except tables are so closed to each other and so noisy
We went as a family and was an absolute pleasure. The quality of the food is excellent, pure pleasure. The same for the service. Strongly recommended.
Food was beyond our expectations. Met Chef Ricardo and paid him my compliments. Cannot wait to go back!!
Had the Caesar salad and the mushroom ravioli with black truffles. Amazing. My husband had the caprese salad and the fettuccine bolognese.
Fantastic restaurant in every way.
We felt like we were in Italy from the moment we were shown our table with a friendly , “Prego!”. Service was thoughtful and food was authentic and delicious. We will return.
The linguini in the cacio e pepe was hard and the sauce was oily. There was an eggshell in one of the avocado toast’s that was ordered. The caprese salad and the caeser salad was good. Service was excellent. Rose was good.
Consistently good! Very good in fact. Had the anchovies with butter and the insalata di mare to start and split the Branzino with my friend. Had a delicious Vino bianco from Sicily to wash it all down. Attentive and friendly service always. This restaurant has a great West Village vibe. Both a neighborhood gem and a draw for europeans because of the delicious, authentic italian cuisine. Always good for people watching.
Ho mangiato qui con la mia ragazza a pranzo, volevo venirci da un po’ e ho mangiato veramente bene. Un po’ costoso ma ne vale la pena.
Nice quaint restaurant in West Village. Dined for restaurant week but only a few choices were from regular menu. Normal portion sizes. Food was very good and service was excellent.
The food was awful, which was surprising, as the Madison Avenue location is great.
First, our pasta was so salty, it was inedible. They had to remake, causing another long wait.
The second go round, the vongole pasta contained so much red pepper, I had to shake off the sauce, eating plain pasta.
We were then served grilled salmon swimming in olive oil. We were forced to send it back. This resulted in us leaving the restaurant dissatisfied and hungry.
Was there with a friend, girls weekend. Everything was fabulous!
Fantastic! We love this place.
Great Place!! Great food!!
It was awesome. Our waitress was so attentive and treated us great! Highly recommend
All was really good! Always amazing! Great service
Great value on a Restaurant Week menu. Will definitely return.
Me and my wife’s annual monthly date and she had a great time
Also our server was amazing as well.
Wonderful food, and great value for restaurant week! A really nice way to try something new, we'll be back.
Outstanding as always. Every trip to New York includes a visit to Sant Ambroeus for Linguine Cacio e Pepe. I brought my niece and didn't say a word that it was a special visit and everyone treated all of us as if it were an occasion - which it always is!
Love this restaurant, service can be spotty at times however. This past visit the restaurant was almost empty yet our server seemed overwhelmed and somewhat exasperated at times. All in all, though I keep coming back for the fabulous food, cocktails and wine!
Great food. Love to eat outside when weather nice. Fabulous service also
I really like this restaurant, and go often. I love to take friends who have never been here, but that backfired on me last week.
Two friends who have heard me raving about it were so upset when we were asked to leave because they needed the table. We had just paid the check and were finishing up our wine when our server, and then the host, both asked us to give up the table.
My two friends will not be going back and will be telling there friends not to go.
It was not handled well....
A lovely restaurant. Tables a bit tight, but the food is excellent. Service very good. Test: would I go back there again? Definitely!
We love saint ambroeus but the service on this occasion was not up to par with what we usually expect.
Terrasse très calme.
Pâtes très bonnes et Tiramisu inoubliable!
Great food and service; I was a lunching lady at this visit and it was perfect for the unaccustomed occasion. The espressos are soooo good!
Attractive venue in a terrific location. The dishes were delicious, although I have had linguini alla vongole in other restaurants that were more to my liking. Excellent service and a most welcoming atmosphere.
Food was good but was horrendously overpriced- even for New York. Bill for 2 was around $ 275 , & that was with one of their least expensive wines & no desert.
Great food! Great place. Everything just perfect
Delicious food and great service. Sat outside on a beautiful morning. We’ll make this a regular spot for brunch.
Excellent food, excellent service, excellent experience.. ALWAYS!!!
One of the best meals ever. Can’t wait to go back the service was great and enjoyed eating inside
Great dining experience. Service was attentive and quick. They are also accommodating to dietary restrictions.
Wonderful meal in an comfortable and elegant setting. Attentive and personable staff with excellent Italian cusine.
Always great food and near-flawless service. Can't recommend it enough. One of the restaurants that's worth the price. The only suggestion I'd make would be to expand the wine list a bit south of $150. (Maybe another Vino Nobile di Mont. or two.)
The best food, great ambience and the best service we ever had at a restaurant... definitely making this restaurant our place to eat
