Joya del vecindario
Ambar es el punto de encuentro del sureste de Europa y la zona de Southeast de Washington DC. El objetivo de este restaurante es combinar los mejores productos del Nuevo y el Viejo Mundo para deleitar los paladares de sus comensales. Los Balcanes, que han estado siempre rodeados de grandes imperios, deben gran parte de su gastronomía a su historia, su geografía y su clima. Generalmente, se cree que el término balcan proviene de la palabra bizantina que significa: "una cadena de montañas boscosas". Ambar fue creado con el deseo de llevar la gastronomía balcánica a Washington DC, y de deleitar y satisfacer los sentidos. El restaurante se caracteriza por sus "platillos pequeños", pero también ofrece vinos y licores de los Balcanes que no son muy conocidos para los comensales estadounidenses. Si desea reservar para 12 o más personas, por favor llame al restaurante al 202.813.3039

We made a reservation and when we arrived we seated immediately ( Saturday night) the service was great . The waitress was really friendly and patient with us asking questions about the menu since it was our first time. The food came out rather quickly and was very tasty. The price is very reasonable, unlimited tapas style food was great leaving us full but not uncomfortable. The unlimited drinks for 20 was also very nice. Will definitely go again

Ambar used to be a go to for special occasions - no more. They’ve increasingly added restrictions to their all you can eat experience, are rude in enforcing them, and have a general take it or leave it attitude. I choose to leave it. We had a party of 6 and were told we could only order 6 dishes at a time. That would be fine if the portions were large but they’re tapas sized so we ended up only feeding a third of the table at a time. We had one party member who had dietary restrictions who was not allowed to just order dishes on his own so he didn’t get his first dish until an hour into the meal. All you can drink is also now restricted so you can’t order another drink until you were completely done with the first. Our table ended up with 2 drinks over the 2 hr period because we never saw our waiter in time to follow all these restrictive rules. They raised their prices, reduced portion sizes, and added restrictive rules that do not work well with their staffing/workflow. What used to be a great time becomes an overpriced, frustrating experience.

The menu can be a bit overwhelming but if you have a great server like Cornelio he'll bring out the favorites and classic go-to's in Balkan cuisine. The 1st and 2nd floor have a really interior decor, a little disappointed with the 3rd floor which seems better for lunch or a more casual setting.

This was one of the best restaurant experiences we’ve had in a long time. The food was great, the service was fantastic, and the outdoor seating was nice. We didn’t realize it was an all-you-can-eat experience until we got there and I was worried at first, but the way they do their small plates is an excellent concept. We would definitely return here to enjoy more of the amazing food. As an additional note, they are extremely accommodating to people with food allergies. My wife needs to avoid gluten and dairy and our awesome waitermade sure all of our food was safe for her to eat. Highly recommend!!

If you get the first or second floor it’s a nice atmosphere. If you are at the third floor. It’s like a diner. The service was good. The food was a bit cold and just ok. I got the ambassador experience. I recommend trying it out but it’s not for me.

Amazing meal! Did the “Ambar Experience” which essentially allows you and the table to sample pretty much anything on the menu and boy was it incredible! Our waiter had plenty of amazing recommendations and was patient as we explored and navigated the menu trying out all the wonderful Balkan cuisine! The ambiance was great too. Sitting up on the third floor with the open ceiling to the outdoors felt amazing. Will definitely be coming back soon!

The food and service were outstanding. Given that it was an all you can eat menu, and we weren’t super hungry, it wasn’t worth it for us.

Confusing menu with lots of small plates that were brought to the table in somewhat haphazard fashion. One time we had lots of food, but no plates to put it on, and no utensils to eat it with! We had eaten at Ambar several previous times, and had reviewed it more positively, but we did not enjoy this bundled menu, with the numerous decisions that had to be made, several of which were not clear. There were 6 of us in our party, and perhaps that made it more difficult. Two-four people might have been able to more easily negotiate it. We hope they return to the previous menu or one similar to it.

We are less likely to recommend Ambar that we have previously been.

We love this restaurant but our last two visits have been met with unavailable menu items and little recipe changes that decreased the usual high quality. Plus, the mixed drinks have varied greatly in strength, sweetness, etc.

Cortney was our waiter Sunday at 11 and made FANTASTIC mimosas! We had a great time and I even got a birthday plate! Bottomless brunch was definitely worth the price and every dish was incredibly flavorful~ small bites so you can honestly try as much of the menu as you can fit :) some of the food did take a moment to come through, but it was always hot and the mimosas kept us plenty entertained in the mean time 9/10 reccomend!

Unfortunately, my husband and I weren't thrilled with Ambar. We were there celebrating our anniversary and we noted that in our reservation. There was no acknowledgement of our anniversary from the staff like other restaurants have done. Our "table" wasn't ready when we arrived so we had to wait. We had a reservation for bar seating which I thought was a table in the bar area based on the website photos and after calling and asking about it, but it wasn't in the bar area it was the actual bar so that was disappointing. Especially since the food runners parked their trays right next to us the entire time. It was very loud and not the place for an anniversary dinner.

The "Dining Experience" isn't worth the price and the food is already made so it's not as fresh as it should be. Several things were cold or over cooked. You can add unlimited drinks, but they aren't very good either. Very bottom-shelf liquor used. I think you are better to order from the menu instead of having the unlimited options. Overall, we were disappointed with the experience.

The Balkan experience is amazing! My fiance and I went there this past weekend and loved every dish. The dishes are fairly small which was perfect so we could try just about everything on the menu.

We’ve been to Ambar before and there’s a noticeable difference in food quality and service. The latter I chalk up to pandemic woes and labor shortages. The food was uneven in that some items were salty and over cooked and service was slow and uneven so items arrived haphazardly. It literally felt like a lousy buffet. Servers were stressed and forgetful. Salmon felt like it was encrusted in table salt. Mussels were very fishy. Chicken was meh. Steak and lamb were good. Cheese pie was dry. We were really sad and disappointed at the difference from two years ago. I also would not recommend Ambar based on the price of $40 per person excluding drinks. Way too pricey for the quality and unevenness of the food. DC has far better options. Location is great for people watching, if you’re seated outside. I’d go Greek or Mediterranean at another place before dining here again.
