Nice, clean restaurant w/ good food and drinks. 2/26/2009

Fresh sushi, pretty strong drinks, a creative cocktail menu and a nice, attentive staff. The frozen green tea margarita is good. The bartenders could be better looking though...hah. Pros: Mostly everything. Nice, clean bathrooms too. Cons: Their brunch menu should have a 2nd option of including a specialtly cocktail.. or two. more

The sushi dinner was super fresh and beautifully prepared...a delicate feast. more

Amber is legit!! 12/27/2008

Great service. We were seated immediately (though it was only 12:15 pm). The decor was a great concept but needed a little bit of an update. The food though, was amazing. We had the Crispy Fried Spicy Tuna Money Bag and Fried Calamari, which both tasted great. For entrees, we had the Ocean and the Upper East Side rolls which were both absolutely amazing and we couldn't decide which one tasted better. The Ocean roll was tantalizing to our taste buds, yet the Upper East Side was a bit tamer with a unique mix of flavors that worked very well together along with the freshness of the lobster inside. Overall, we highly recommend this place and would suggest going early to avoid the crowds, however the bartender does not start until 4pm. more

Excellent sushi, A+ for ambience 11/23/2008

I went here with my friends on Friday night and all of us LOVED our food. My friends said it was the best spicy tuna roll they've ever had. They have a nice cocktail list too - just be careful~ some of them are super sweet. My lychee martini was made perfectly but my friends ""Sakura"" and Pomtini were a bit too sweet. Our server was gracious as were the hosts. I hope this restaurant sticks around -- my friends and I will definitely be back! Pros: delicious sushi, good for groups, ambience, courteous hosts/servers Cons: watch out for the sugary 'tinis more

Just Try... 9/26/2008

i'm already in love with this place. i was uncertain about some of the dishes and the proprietress tried to steer me without the usual condescension reserved for us linguistically challenged diners. not one dish was off -- the whole thing was worth the schlep from the mission, seriously. \r \r now, can they please do something about the decor or does that mean they'll jack up the prices? more

good food and good service. The rolls rock more

Pleasantly surprised 6/10/2008

We finally got around to trying this place recently and were very pleasantly surprised! There was a wait to eat outside, which we didn't mind, so we had a drink at the bar from a friendly and capable bartender. Their drinks are creative and tasty, if a bit strong. (Simply a warning--but at least you're not getting cheated, right?)\r \r Simply put, our food was very good. My boyfriend hates sushi, which is my favorite, so it's often a challenge finding a place that has both good, fresh, and creative sushi, but still has ample (and quality) other choices--not a problem here! The Indian pancake app was amazing, my roll (Red Hot Dragon) was fresh, and he enjoyed his Thai style chicken dish (can't remember exact name!)\r \r The service was also above average--very polite and prompt, if not the most informed (I was in the mood to try something new and asked what other sashimi he recommended--he was at a loss.) The food and drinks were creative and delicious, and the atmosphere inside definitely adds to the experience. We'll without a doubt be back and often! Pros: selection, service, drinks Cons: not many-- a little crowded (where isn't in Manhattan?), might be hard for large groups more

Great Addition to the UES 6/1/2008

I had a long, leisurely Sunday lunch at Amber. It was a perfect pre-summer NYC afternoon and I enjoyed the atmosphere outside. The service can be somewhat slow, so don't go to this place if you're in a rush. The sushi was excellent and reasonably priced. Pros: Outside seating, general neighborhood feel Cons: Too kid-friendly- too many strollers, kids running afoot more

I am neighborhood here, first time to try when I got these review . I do not feel, Amber is as you guy said, how good he is. don't lie to the honest person.I spent 67$. I didn't get what I pay for.(this is no include tip)\r its consistently no good. and so chinese style. more

Excellent food and service 12/22/2007

Amber exceeded our expectations. My wife and I are avid Sushi and Thai food eaters, not only was the food delicious but the menu items they offered are unique. We found the service to be excellent ; the servers were attentive and pleasant. I own a restaurant and give Amber my highest recommendation. more

Hidden gem...better than Tao or Sushisamba any day! 8/14/2007

I've been to a lot of sushi restaurants in NYC, LA and Boston. This by far beats any NY or LA place I've been to- including the ultra-trendy places like Tao or Sushisamba! And the price and service are much better as well! The spicy tuna rolls are perfect, as well as the shrimp and avacado! It almost beats Fugakyu in Boston, but not quite. But since its right in my neighborhood in NY, it reigns as the winner!! Pros: price, deliciousness, outdoor seating, attentive service more

I eat out allot & love to sit at a bar & enjoy good drinks and food. Amber is the place for me. It has quick service, a full bar menu & the best drinks on 3rd avenue-upper east side. I love to watch sports on the large flat screen tv, enjoy the fine sushi & wash it all down with the best drinks in the city ! My personal recomedations are the Green Tea Margarita's & the Ocean Roll. Pure heaven. Pros: BAR DRINKS, FOOD & HUGE FLAT SCREEN TV Cons: not open all night more

Great ""Crunchy Crunchy Crunchy"" 7/5/2007

I really liked their Crunchy Crunchy Crunchy tartar. It was so good! The sushi at this place is definitely great. Atmosphere also good. Only complaint: no service! Our waitress came by, took our order, brought the food, and that was all she did... we had to ask the bus boy for our check b/c she had disappeared. I think I'll give them one more try since the food was so good and hopefully we won't run into a bad waitress. Definitely recommended if you live in UES, and even worth a little trek if you don't. Pros: Great ""Crunchy Crunchy Crunchy"" appetizer, great sushi Cons: bad service - waitress disappeared after she brought us the food more


I live in the neighbourhood so its very convenient for me & i visit a couple times a week to eat and have an occasional drink.The manager Bo is a very nice guy, he takes time to interact with patrons and make them feel great. Lileyanne makes the best Mojito on the face of the earth and Shane (the other bartender) always is good for a laugh. I highly recomend going there, the place is clean and warm & it is full of good looking people. 5 star recomendation ! Pros: Great drinks, excellant food, fast service Cons: drinks taste too good ! more


Heard of Amber from a few friends couple months ago, couldn't help myself from going back since then! The decor is both romantic and hip, with AWESOME music playing in the back. The food is always fresh, from the satay to sangria duck to sushi, I've tried 'em all without breaking the bank! Service was average at first, but after seeing a few new faces, BIG improvement, more attentive (tho too much at times) and friendly staff, credit to the management! All my friends and I will keep on passing the words around, after all the years eating out, now we finally have our favorite spot! We HIGHLY recommended. Oh! dont forget to check out the ""hidden"" room in the back. Pros: Ambience, friendly staff, great food Cons: Service too fast on weekends more
