Had the sauerkraut/mushroom and bacon pierogies, and the mushroom and onion stuffed schnitzel. Both very tasty! Only downside of my experience at Amber was the pricing... quite expensive for simple European comfort food.

The Amber Restaurant is somewhat preserved in amber. The first time I visited was thirty years ago and I haven't been back as often as I should. My return visit was very pleasant indeed. I had the baked onion soup and the "Amber Chicken" which comes with a nice tomato-based sauce and with sprinkled on paprika and mashed potatoes on the side. Very tasty. Service was slightly distracted but I think this was on purpose. They were not busy (I was eating before 6:00 P.M.) and didn't want to seem pushy. Which is refreshing.

They did have a television, but it was just showing pictures of their food and advertisements for some sort of special water. They could probably do without it.

Prices have gone up a bunch over the years, but this is probably because they are focused on good quality ingredients. It shows in the food.

We had 4 different food items between two people, and we have to say the food was very bland and actually tasteless. The perogies were the most uninteresting I have ever had. Such a shame as I was so looking forward to some delicious comfort food. Sadly, we won’t be back.

This restaurant has been around for decades. I ordered a caesar salad and perogies. The food was average, but tasty. The service was friendly. Seems a bit overpriced for what you're getting.
