We recently ate at Amber Upper West before an attending La Boheme at the Met. We arrived at 5:30 and were immediately seated in the spacious rear dining room. Our dishes included the duck spring rolls, salmon tartare, spicy tuna and avocado salad, eel sushi, eel and avocado rolls, and yellowtail chives rolls. Every piece of fish was fresh, well... More

I had sushi - fish tasted old not fresh. Affordable but inferior food. I have been there 3 to 4 times.

I first found out about this restaurant 3 years ago. When they had a larger location on Columbus and 69 th. The new location is small but equally as great. They have seating in the front that is more intimate setting and even more space in the back with a green house glass ceiling . The staff always remembers exactly... More

I went to dinner here with friends and set in their small rear garden which I recommend weather permitting if open. I had the fish special it was very good. All in all an enjoyable dinner with friends.

This was my first visit to this location. In the past I've had lunch with co-workers at another (downtown) location, and this physical space was formerly a wonderful, brick-wall Tunisian restaurant. So I was curious about what's (t)here now, and tried a few things this evening. I'm stuck on recalling my mentor's comment about being good at "eclectic" (lots of... More

My husband had Pad Thai and I had coconut green curry with shrimp . It was very tasty with just the right amount of heat. We had it delivered and they were prompt and courteous!

The food was fine. The service by the young male waiter was sub-par. He seemed arrogant. Fine ambiance and average priced menu.

I must say, I am was not a big Asian food person, but I am now. Really good food and reasonably priced. Great service! I did not feel rushed at all; plenty of time to decide on food and visit with friends.

One of the movie theaters we visit frequently is the Lincoln Square Leows Cinemas at 68th Street. Amber is just around the block from there on Columbus Avenue. We've been there twice now, and loved it both times. Great dim sum, great sushi and good green curry with coconut milk. We are overdue for another trip there, actually. Maybe this... More

Been there a couple of times ..... Food does not disappoint and does put a hole in your pockets! Cool ambience and family friendly - while keeping a cool vibe. This is a small gem of the UWS. Sushi is fresh and has out door enclosed terrace.

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
