La comida es buenísima y la experiencia para volver a repetir.
Me encanta este lugar y nunca me voy de Washington sin ir. En tiempos de pandemia, se han adaptado muy bien.
Fue una cena de aniversario pero creo que no es el lugar para hacerlo. La comida y servicio es muy buena, pero hay demasiado ruido.
4 of us did the "All you can order in 2 hours" special and had a blast. Food was delicious. Ian and the staff kept the orders coming. A great, fun evening.
The noise level was very high - almost impossible to have a conversation. Did not stay for dinner.
Wasn't super impressed. Really wanted to love this place but the food itself was dry and overcooked. It honestly felt like I was eating glorified cafeteria food. The sauces were overpowering and seemed like they were trying to cover up the poor execution of the dishes. The cheese pie was so dry it broke in a million pieces when I cut into it and the friend chicken was so hard I couldn't even cut it! The cocktails were meh. The ambiance is nice but thats about it.
I’ve been to Ambar for brunch countless times and the experience I had today was nothing like I’ve experienced before.
The service was absolutely horrible. Our server came to our table a total of three times. Filled our water once and gave me one mimosa over the course of two hours. This almost would’ve been acceptable had the server next not visited the table directly behind us just as few times, but they didn’t. They visited that table many more times than us.
The food today was incredibly slow coming from the kitchen, so much so that it took an hour for an item I ordered to come out. (I’m partly thinking our server forgot about it.) I also ordered their potato hash (which I get every time and usually multiple orders) and it was completely dried out, too crisp, and not hot. Makes me think it was sitting there and just keep warmed up.
Their little cornbread muffins were dried out which was a bummer because that’s another favorite of mine and it just wasn’t at its usual standard today.
At some point I was able to get the attention of a manager walking by to order their red wine punch, and unfortunately, that wasn’t good today either — it was very watered down.
Overall, today was a very bad and sad experience. Hopefully, the stars will align the next time I go.
Sat outside. The heaters were great and the brunch was delicious.
Jeffrey was by far the best server we have ever had here
Delicious place for small plates!
We did the all you can eat option and tried most of the menu. Everything was delicious! The slow roasted lamb was a favorite. The portions are smaller because everything is served tapas style and I recommend doing the AYCE option instead of ordering a la carte
A bar has changed for the worse. A few years ago food was light, medium seasoned. You looked forward to each new plate. Now, most dishes are heavy, salty, over seasoned. Liked the mussels, cauliflower, steak tartar. Cheese pastry was so heavy, beef was salty, frites were overdone French fries. Food was a disappointment. Service was fine. Ambiance? It always too loud there, but you should know that going in. Not an enjoyable experience, especially at $40/.
Food was fantastic and we will definitely go back and just hope our service is better next time. We waited 5 mins to get our table (with reservation) at 4:30pm with about 90% of the restaurant empty. They seemed very unorganized. Our server was a little short with us as well. But like I said, the experience and food out weighed the negatives.
Worth checking out this new approach to ordering from the menu. But be prepared for a noisy meal.
The Ambar Experience deal was awesome for my group of 4, but the restaurant was packed so the drink service was a little slower than I'd have liked (it was my birthday!). The food was fantastic though, and I definitely plan to go back!
Took a while for us to get seated even with a reservation, but that's brunch in Arlington on a Saturday for you. Everything else was great.
The restaurant is a nice vibe and brunch is a great deal, but the food and service can be spotty. Some things definitely felt more mass produced with less care and service was slow at times. But if you go knowing what to expect it's fun and a few plates are gems.
Great spot, good food, good service, nice ambiance. Only reason for the 4 and not 5 stars is due to then braised lamb and the meatballs being way too salty.
Nice dining experience. The menu is a little confusing in reference to the pricing - the individual dishes do not list prices, but at the top it states the price for any and all of the items... As a first time guest I was a bit confused, thinking that all the listed items were individually orderable as in a la carte menu. Turned out, the top price was for everything (sans drinks), and the place was similar to a "buffet" but with each of the items served by servers/waiters... Once that concept was understood, the rest was easy... Good experience.
Always excellent -- Love the small plates, and each one is unique. Noise level is quite high, but thanks to the pandemic, there seem to be fewer people inside. And I've identified a table where I can hear people fairly well. Truly one of my favorite restaurants.
The atmosphere and food were amazing! We will definitely consider Ambar for future events.
Exact food and services! will come again soon in next week.
Food was amazing and the service was equally amazing.
Great good and staff as always!!! Food was excellent!
We visited Ambar for bottomless brunch. It was nice enough, however I think the staff missed the “bottomless” information. We didn’t drink a lot as the drinks were quite strong, but there was more than one occasion where we needed both alcoholic beverage and water top ups. At one point our waiter completely disappeared and couldn’t be found, and we had to speak to another member of staff to order food.
We also had to chase up several food orders - items ordered right at the beginning of brunch only appeared right at the end. I’m pretty sure we also received food we didn’t order. In addition to this, as a group, we ordered items thinking that multiples of the same item would come on the same plate. Nope! Multiple plates for individual waffle quarters or tiny burgers. It was baffling. Overall it was nice enough, but I’ve had better brunches elsewhere in Clarendon.
Food was OK, I've been here several times and the food has been much better before, somethings were cold and others were just not seasoned well. Overall it's a great deal and a fun time for large groups
The food was delicious and we had good service. If you looking for something different and want to try a variety of menu choices, this is the place!
Incredible as always! Must go if you're in D.C. or Arlington.
Food was AMAZING!!! Would definitely recommend!!!!
Simply spectacular from beginning to reluctant end…we were simply full! Extremely pleasant and gracious staff and the food was incredible. Had family from out of town, who can be opinionated about food. Everyone proclaimed this the best dinner ever…and they can’t wait to return. On top of that exceptional value for the price. Will certainly be returning.
Always a wonderful experience! The food, the service, and the ambiance are top notch. My favorite place to bring my hungry friends from out of town!
We had the tasting menu at our table and our waiter could not have been a better guide to introduce us to so many wonderful tastes of Balkan cuisine.
Wonderful atmosphere and food. We ordered Ámbar experience and got to try almost everything on the menu. Our server Jessica was phenomenal 🤩
Got placed in the basement was in a dingy table with no light for 30 minutes without a waiter No food was served at all
