Had a very good dinner here tonight. The new building is nice and I agree with other reviewers that it is loud but I don't think that it was tough to hear my dinner companions. I had the chicken parm which was awesome. Appetizers were expensive but good. No reason to get the bruschetta as it was expensive but bland.... More

Good value, excellent food, good service. The fish Amok is great, as is the curry. Usually a good selection of desserts. I have never been disappointed when eating here.

I was a regular at their former location. This was the first time at the new one. Though the ambience was quite nice, I miss the ambience of the old location. The food on the other hand is just as good or maybe even better. We dined outside. It was a great experience - even sitting right on College during... More

This restaurant has always been good, but this dinner was superb ! The new location is definitely a plus, & the menu has some new dishes worth checking out. Jeff (our waiter) is one of the best servers in the city & we could not have had better service ! I highly recommend this restaurant !!!

The new Ambrosia location exemplifies all that was good about the original. Intimate setting, fabulous food, and superb service. It was too cold to sit outside, but that looks inviting as well. Great place for a date dinner, or romantic evening.

This restaurant has to be the noisiest place I have ever eaten in. There is nothing in the facility to absorb and sound, and almost every diner, aware of their inability to hear anything, was practically screaming. Conversation was impossible. Our waiter had to come around to each person individually, lean over close to that person, and almost yell to... More

I really liked the atmosphere of the previous location. This one is extremely noisy, perhaps due to all the hard surfaces. A bit overpriced on the pasta dishes. Can a waitress be TOO solicitous to the point of being intrusive? Food was generally good.

I had anticipated eating at Ambrosia for sometime. We finally made it there and were somewhat disappointed with the atmosphere. We ate inside. We were surprised how on display one feels seated in this restaurant. Perhaps it is where we were seated, but it was not conducive to a romantic dinner which was supposed to be the object of this...

Had several dinner there since they moved to the new location....parking is now sooo much easier on their parking lot. Best mussels I had in a while, the Italian Wedding Soup is outstanding and the Veal Piccata is served with plenty of Veal in a succulent lemon butter sauce with capers. We were always welcomed there in a friendly way... More

Our dinner at Ambrosia was just lovely! We sat outside and enjoyed the hustle bustle of SOBRO go by while we enjoyed our delicious dinner and velvety wine. The outdoor experience is not especially a serene atmosphere but then you know that when you choose to sit outside. We enjoyed excellent service and yummy Italian food as well as the... More
