OK, it is a diner, and as such has an enormous menu that would be impossible to execute perfectly every time. But we order wisely and eat there often, especially because they are open fairly late. Like most good diners, they have good Greek food, impressive (and large) baked goods, and breakfast all day long. There are some pleasant surprises. Once my wife ordered lamb stew and it came as an enormous bowl of lamb broth with neatly trimmed vegetables, and a big chunk of lamb shank in the middle like an osso buco - really wonderful. On the other hand, if you order something with mashed potatoes and gravy, you will get just that.

My wife loves to go here after work. The food rarely disappoints, except oddly when they stopped putting honey on their baklava. Other than that one minor critique, it's worth going to if everyone wants something different or you just want some decent diner food.

We ate here for breakfast - delicious - and the food was out in about 5 minutes. Our server was so nice and the service was great. We went back for dinner on another night and had just as nice an experience. We'll visit again when we return to the area!

Ambrosia is nothing to write home about. The food is mediocre and the staff is rude! Last time I went there my waitress was snapping her gum the entire time I was trying to order. It's not the worst, but it's also not the best. And it Deffinately should not be ranked 3 rd in Catskill.

Decent consistent food. Better than there sister diner across the river. Updated decor is nice. The only real place to eat in this forgotten little town. Something for everyone. Typical American Diner food!
