What an interesting idea! Combine the flavors of a French menu with some great Japanese flares.
Ambrosia is a beautiful spacious resturant with high ceilings, low lighting and tastfully chic decor. Dark woods, cream colors and the entire front allows a wonderful view of the street with it's floor-to-ceiling windows.
The food was excellent! The flavors popped! and each bite was packed with exotic taste that was kept grounded by the french overtones. The presentation was grand but fun.
The portions were slightly small for the amount of money spent .
As for the service, I believe we had a waiter, but after taking our order he disappeared for the remainder of the evening until it was time to drop off the bill. This was in a large resturant after peek hours when it wasn't even half-filled. We also had to flag down a busboy (who was really quite nice about it considering we weren't his table) to fill our drinks. From what I've heard this is normal.
Valet parking, smoking section, handicap accessible, bar, vegetarian entrees available.
Leave the jeans at home. This place is casual chic.
Make reservations it's going to be busy!
Mostly seems to be frequented by the wine snob crowd, but go with friends (make your own fun!!! )
