I will definitely be going there again. It totally hit the spot in terms of what I was looking for in a dining experience that night.
Birthday....._excellent experience. Planning to go back soon with 4 other friends.
Amber Cafe is a great night out. We ate there with our family and had a wonderful evening. The service is well paced. The cevapi is a great started, this wonderful sausage is homemade at Amber and very authentic. The whitefish is outstanding, the butternut squash ravioli was a perfect autumn dish and the lamb shank was out of this world. The wine list has a nice selection.
Lights too bright in an otherwise pretty restaurant
We went with friends and have a very nice meal. The food was really good and reasonably priced
Amber is one of those hidden GEMS in the suburbs. If you've never been there you are really missing out on a wonderful experience.
Great Restaurant. Great food. Great service. Reasonable prices. Try the GTO cocktail. It’s great. Amber is a neighborhood gem. Will go back again.
Always enjoy the food & service at Amber Cafe. Had an appetizer and drink at the bar as we arrived early for our reservation. Then ate outside in the newly refinished patio area. Everything was beautiful and fantastic.
We always enjoy dining at Amber. This time we brought another couple who had never been and they also enjoyed the food, ambiance and service. As always, Dusko was his usual charming, professional self. We most definitely will return! Thank you!
Four of us had a wonderful evening on Amber's outdoor patio Saturday night. Beautiful ambiance, delicious food, and great service by Dusko. The Halibut wrapped in bacon and served over risotto was so flavorful, and the Amber whitefish is my all time favorite restaurant meal. Definitely try the roasted brussel sprouts with bacon and a balsalmic glaze-so good! we finished our meal with a homemade piece of tiramisu; delicious and large enough to share.
Great food but service a bit slow.
Great variety on the menu. Everything we ordered was wonderful. Enjoyed sitting outside in the back. Very good service. And a surprising excellent martini.
Consistently good food and a quiet atmosphere, great for conversation.
It was very good. Service was slow, but more the enjoy a leisurely meal slow rather than inattentive slow. We really enjoyed it.
First time customer. We took another customer to celebrate his retirement. My wife had the whitefish and loved it. I had the goulash and loved while I was eating, but it didn't agree with me later in the evening.
Good food, great service, lovely outdoor space in back, nice live music.
First time to Amber. We will be back. And soon! The food was excellent. We enjoyed sitting on the attractive and cozy back patio. Our server could not have been better. He was knowledgeable about the menu and wine list and properly paced our relaxing meal. We were delighted to find a new favorite spot to add to our list of “go to” restaurants.
The outdoor patio was lovely, except for the flies (outdoor fans may help), service was excellent and the food was delicious. Would recommend.
Amber is the best deal going. They revamped the appearance of the restaurant and changed the entire menu.
A lot of comfort foods and the prices are of real value. If you live or are traveling in the western suburbs, making Amber your dinner destination will not disappoint you. Sit outside on the patio and enjoy the ambiance.
A real neighborhood gem.
We love it here. We sat in the back patio, just perfect on a warm summer night!

Wonderful patio area
Food was great. The patio is wonderful and I loved the grilled octopus.
The outside patio is charming. Food was delicious.
Our favorite restaurant for special occasions. Birthdays ,anniversary or treating friends.
Service was great food was even better. So glad they’ve reopened
Had a great time. Very comfortable with good drinks, Greta selection on menu and well executed specials. Atmosphere was upscale neighborhood reverb with a fine dining component. Sat in the bar area where dining actually engaged each other from nearby tables. Matt the bartender made for a very relaxing evening
From the food to the service to the ambience, Amber exceeded our expectations.
Amazing food across the board from appetizer to desert and everything in between. Drinks were amazing. The waiter paired a drink with what we were having perfectly and the drink he created was amazing. Will go back without a question!
Amber continues to be a very good restaurant that we eat at monthly.
Love the new menu. Service is always great!
The outdoor was really nice and the service and food were excellent.
Excellent service and delicious food! Highly recommend!
As usual, the service, food and noise level (in the front restaurant area) were excellent.
Amber was closed for a number of months for a remodel. The biggest change was the menu. It has many different items. The ones I have tried have been excellent. Prices are moderate for good food and good service.
Excellent food and the music was turned down so that my friend and I could talk comfortably.
Friendly staff, delicious goulash, interesting wine list. Would return!
Amazing food, amazing service, and amazing family restaurant. Love this place!
We are long time Amber fans and supporters overall, so I want to be careful with this review. The staff is amazing and we love the ambiance, especially the back patio in the summer. However, we were so disappointed with Mother's Day Brunch. It was $47.50 per head and the food was not only incredibly limited, but it was cold and dried up for the most part. I'm wondering if maybe there was not much kitchen oversight that day, or if there were not enough customers to keep the food moving through? They would have been better off just offering their regular menu. If we are paying almost $50 per head for a buffet in the suburbs, we expect a really nice spread! Many places also offer a free mimosa to moms - not the case here. We ended up with a $330 bill for 5 of us and all walked away hungry. I'm hoping this was a fluke and they will do better going forward.
We love the new menu. Something a little different from the usual dining options, from main courses to desserts and wines.
Chris served a fantastic meal to us. Everything was perfect!
