We made our rez on open table and requested the corner table by the window. Thy were nice enough to make this request. Our waiter, Fabian, was excellent! $18.00 bottle sold for $58.00. Come on, thats a little crazy, Our Burrata appetizer was fantastic, served with arugula, sweet red onion and cherry tomatoes. I'd definitely recommend that you try this.... More

Our dinners were so delicious and Chris was an excellent waiter! Service staff was also very attentive. In addition to dinner we had a soup, salad and dessert which were also fantastic. We'll definitely be back!!!

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 -
