The best restaurant in Westmont. Bring your checkbook though. It's good to treat yourself once in awhile. The portions are small, but exquisite.

We've been to Amber a few times over the years; summer is great time to dine at Amber because of its outdoor patio. It is a lovely setting that stays cool under a lighted tent. The last time we were there, however, the food was quite underwhelming and the service dragged. Normally, we savor every bite and eat past being... More

Three of us dined at Amber last evening and it was the perfect spot; we sat in the front room and there were only 2 other occupied tables during our stay so conversation was easily heard. The waiter was attentive and helpful with suggestions both for wine and for dinner choices. The Salmon was a very large portion, perfectly prepared... More

Love the restaurant - cozy, outstanding food, very good service and unpretentious - I love their meatloaf - not what you think! My wife usually gets fish which is always good. Highly recommended for foodies from western suburbs of Chicago.

We've lived in Westmont for nearly 3 years and while we've been to sister restaurant, Topaz in Burr Ridge (great spot!) we had not stopped in here. We drove by again this week and decided that we had to go and we did. What a great surprise. Amazing grilled calamari salad appetizer, wonderfully prepared whitefish and smoked short rib entrees...

My husband and I really enjoy Amber. The service is always excellent, and the good delicious. We love the outdoor patio in spring and fall. Such a great local option for a nice meal out! It's upscale but not stuffy or too formal- perfect balance.

Food is always good - better than expectations and the service is as good as the food! Would recommend Amber for Couples, business and Friends! There are other places better suited for families -

I have been to this restaurant several times in the past year and have never been disappointed. The food is elegant, delicious, perfectly portioned (unless you are a big eater) and the chef mixes flavors ingeniously. I have never sat inside the restaurant as the patio is enclosed and well heated in the winter and you can't beat it for... More

This restaurant has 3 distinct sections are all are great. The front room has a traditional, attractive small dining room; the back bar area has (you guessed it) bar seating and a few tables, and the large fun outdoor "cafe" in back is really attractive and warm in winter and wonderful in summer (when they remove the walls and let...

I have been a devotee of this upscale restaurant in Westmont, IL for many years. Amber has always served exquisite food and drink in a very cozy environment and on a stunningly beautiful outdoor patio in the warmer months. It appears that much has gone astray at what was a great restaurant. The server was extremely rude and haughty and... More
