Amazing service and ambiance. The menu was classic/traditional TRUE italian food and their servers knew exactly what they were talking about. The buffala motz and proscuitto app was so fresh and delicious. For an entree, the fettuccine pasta with mushroom ragu and black truffle was incredible. I'll definitely be back.
Fantastic service, food and ambiance as always! Veal Milanese with any of the pastas is a must
I Love this restaurant. The food, the staff, everything about it.
Service was terrible. Food expensive. Won't be going back nor recommending to any friends.
I can understand that any restaurant can have a bad day. But it seems like everything was wrong this past Sunday morning.
The staff were professional and very friendly.
Sant Ambroeus is delicious with exceptional service. I had been before and loved it so I took my mum there for her 60th birthday. The starter was delicious as was her main. Strangely my main (spaghetti vongole) was incredibly salty. To the point that I could only have a few mouthfuls. I explained this to the waiter and he dealt with it perfectly... he offered me to have it recooked with less salt or to order something else from the menu. I didn't actually want something else so I said thank you but no. The maitre d' then came over to apologise and told me that my main wasn't going to be on the bill. She was lovely and there wasn't an ounce of either of them being disgruntled or rude about it. Very professional.
Then to top it off they offered us desert and we declined (because we explained my mum is diabetic) and out came a platter of fruit with a candle in it.
All in all - impressed as ever despite the salty main course. They know how to fix a problem with poise and professionalism! I will definitely be going back on my next trip to NY.
been going since this location opened & always enjoy the service & food. however, its become so pricey - especially drinks (and the pour of martini & wine rather meager for the price), that it will now only be a 'special occasion' treat. bummer.
Had lovely dinner with daughters. We love the spaghetti carbonara.
A little dark for reading menu (for mom) but otherwise a lovely, welcoming small restaurant
with great food.
Been there before and think service is going downhill. Forgot my companion's side dish. Couldn't get the waiter's attention for @ 5 minutes - and restaurant is tiny. My entree was tasty and hot but side came cold. For the money, I suggest going elsewhere.
Expensive with not a lot of bang for your buck
We were there for Restaurant Week lunch, so I can't speak to their regular prices, but our lunch was a fantastic deal. And the food was just amazing -- I can honestly say it was one of the best meals I have ever had. Capping things off, the service was perfect -- polite without being obsequious, and attentive without being pushy. This was an experience I will remember for a long time.
Great spot. Wonderful service. Exquisite coffee, and breakfast foods. Mgr Mauricio was simply amazing with wine service. True professional.
Asked for scrambled eggs and arugula salad and I misunderstood waiters suggestion so I ended up with an omenlet. Fine but it what I wanted
Small place so definitely make a reservation. Food was delicious. Service was slow though so be prepared to sit down for a while
Beautiful setting, delicious food, attentive service.
Great vibe, scene, romantic. One of best spots in WV. Get the bolognese and veal. Amazing service - gave us a desert on the house because we were new parents
Restaurant Week lunch. It was excellent.
I came to Sant Ambroeus in the West Village to celebrate my friend's birthday and take advantage of the NY Restaurant Week menu. They had some of their well-known Sant Ambroeus dishes on the restaurant week menu. The Spaghetti all'Arrabbiata was absolutely delicious. It is spicy, but so good that I could not stop eating it. They had a great dessert selection. I ended up choosing the seasonal apple tart, which was a great way to end the meal. The service was very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was intimate. It was a great West Village restaurant. I would go back for another occasion.
Lovely bistro. Service and food is beyond superb. Intimate space; suitable for couples or quads. Kids and large, loud groups ought to look elsewhere
Went for restaurant week. Excellent. Bummer they ran out of profiteroles (though it looked like it was available for a la carte customers).
Been to Sant Ambroeus several times it never disappoints.
Went with friends during winter 2018 restaurant week. Outstanding dishes were the mixed salad and the skate, the others were good or okay. Sophisticated though loud setting, quick and correct service. We spent more on drinks, wine & water, but that's the deal with restaurant week.
Food, service, ambiance, and desserts were all elegant. The short rib and apple tart are particularly delicious. Lovely!
What a wonderful surprise to select this restaurant for NYC Restaurant Week. The food was delightful, the service was friendly and the charm of the restaurant made it feel like we had a brief escape to Italy. I can’t wait to go back!
Ambiance and service trumps this unassuming and intimate West Village hot spot. I was greeted by a pleasant and friendly host, whom I believe I spoke with on the phone as well, remained friendly and accommodating throughout my stay and definitely set the tone right. Everyone from the bar staff to the floor staff were very good and the dinner setting was just impeccable. Food was also very delicious, and so were the wine and cocktails. Perfect place if you would like to impress a date or even for a business meal. I would definitely come back again.
disappointing - compared to other Italian restaurants in the area.
Love this spot.
Excellent food and service!!!
We will be back soon!!!
Excellent!! Had the papardelle. They have gluten free options as well.
One of my favorite places for up-scale Italian food in all of NYC
The food was 'meh' for the price, the wines by the glass also is a poor selection for the price. We have been to this restaurant several years ago and it has lost its luster.
The food fills your soul. The restaurant is intimate and you will make friends with the neighboring table. A wonderful West Village New York experience.
We unfortunately arrived at the wrong Saint Ambroeus not aware that there were two but they kept the kitchen open in order for us to have our Thanksgiving dinner.. great service. Good food and music just a little too loud..
Restaurant was spectacular.
Would highly recomend this restaurant to all
this restaurant is a welcome change from the chrome and tan, noise-rattling establishments. You can actually hear your own voice! The food and service are classy. And they serve breakfast.
Dinner was amazing. Tables are very close together, so it's not possible to not hear your neighbor's conversation. Nice ambiance. Great wine list.
Lovely west village spot for lunch. Outside space is perfect. The food is great and service tremendous. The inside reminds me of Italy.
Loved it here! Coming back soon. Very attentive to their customers and helped me celebrate my birthday with a wonderful desert with a candle on top
Cozzi Chique Charming Best service Delicious dishes.
