I tried the Ambar Experience which allows you to sample anything on the menu tapas style within a two hour period. I was very excited about this culinary experience but it fell a bit short.

Half the food was delicious but some of the other dishes I actually couldn’t swallow. There were meat dishes and it seemed like the meat wasn’t cooked. There were a few issues logistically.

For example once business picked up for the evening dinner rush receiving my tapas became a lot harder. I probably ordered about 15 different plates over two hours but there began to be a huge lag. Instead of bringing them out during a reasonable time it became clear that my tapa experience was not the priority. I noticed other tables getting their food before me.

If you’re going to offer an experience like this you need to make sure the food comes out without half-hour gaps in between. Tapas should be served with timing in mind.

If you’re going to do the experience I also recommend that you keep track on your phone of what you ordered or perhaps the restaurant could give you a small list with a pen or pencil so you can just check off what plates you’ve ordered and when they’ve arrived because after you begin ordering lots of plates it’s easy to forget. Also, several dishes didn’t come out and I had to follow up with my waiter. I suspect this was because the kitchen lost track of them again as the dinner rush began to pick up.

I appreciate that staffing is difficult right now post-pandemic and it’s my intention to support local restaurants. There were some absolutely wonderful things about this place, most of all the ambience indoors at the Clarendon location. Go and enjoy.

Overall a nice experience. The food was good, some tapas were great, others were average. The service was good but not the friendliest staff.

We honestly loved everything we got, everything was amazing. I just booked a reservation for brunch next weekend because of how impressed we were. I personally live in DC but this location is worth the drive. Even the drinks impressed us, the angel and the devil were our favorite.

Dress: casual but cute

Favorites:
drunken mussels
braised lamb
short rib goulash
The flatbreads
Beef Proscuitto

Service: off the charts!

Upon entrance into the establishment the hostess was rude. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and very attentive towards us. The noise level was slightly loud. Would have like to have seen table cloths on the tables and chairs were slightly dirty. They were just setting up the tables as we walked in for our 930 reservation and we arrived at 9:30.We asked for a window seat but we were told that was saved for four people except nobody showed until we were almost getting ready to leave and the restaurant was overall mostly empty in the morning.

Always a fun date night at ambar - we came in for the Balkan experience and had a great time sampling delicious dishes. Great sparkling wine option during happy hour as well! Service was warm, atmosphere was lively, and food was fabulous. One of our favorites!

Valentin was an excellent server, with great suggestions. Having traveled to the former Yugoslavia, I was somewhat familiar the food. However, Valentin gave me excellent guidance to the cuisine.

Everything was excellent and very high quality.

I will be back soon.

Somewhat disappointed. Menu was limited and portions are smaller than pre-COVID. Not sure I would return until things are back to normal.

The servers could do a better job of “looking“ to say when something is needed by the customer. I found this to be one of the floors at Ambar. The food was very good and when the servers was there the food was arrived quite quickly so no complaints on that and the food itself was very good. Again more attention needs to be paid by
Servers or whoever to keep an ion the customers as for instants, no separate spoon was provided when each small dish arrived so we had to ask each time for an additional spoon so we weren’t using our own spoons to share a food item as the items are small to begin with and it is the object to have multipleItems

Food was delicious!!! We did the ambar experience and it did not disappoint. Staff were all wearing masks and or gloves. Tables were spaced out and felt very safe. Would definitely go back now that the weather is getting warmer

Definitely get the Ambar Experience!! It is worth it because you get to try a bit of everything. I would also recommend taking your server's recommendations, they know best ;) This is a good place for foodies and is very price friendly, also good for people who are trying to branch out. Lots of flavors, the plates were very well put together and the presentation was great too

We actually sat inside as the round tables are bigger for a party of four. It was a great lunch. Did the unlimited tapas, which is a great option. Salmon and Trout we're very tasty. Drinks were served and refilled promptly.

It was interesting that for a Monday I went in and I was told that I had to wait an hour without reservations. I made a reservation on the spot and waited only 15 mins. Not sure if that says how the place is run or if I was just not welcome. Kind of struck me in a weird way, but I am putting this out there. So it is important to make a reservation, but I am more concerned about the restaurant operations. If I am new to town and want to check the place an hour wait will make me want to go somewhere else. The place was almost empty on a Monday evening. The food is great, and the service was as expected in a seat-down restaurant. I will make sure I make a reservation next time, but the wait and first impression left me with a bad taste. Would I recommend this place? No. Simply because you can get great food and drinks even for cheaper around the area with better customer service from the host/hostess.

Ambar is our favorite restaurant in Arlington and we have only had the very best experiences there. I'm vegetarian and have never left hungry, and my fiance loves the extensive menu and variety of meat served. Their deserts are unique and innovative, their coffee is comforting, and the wine is delicious. Beyond that, the ambiance (lighting, plants, service, music) are all perfection. Go for dinner or brunch, you will not be disappointed.

The service was terrible. Our server looked lazy, seem liked she hated her job. Forgot our orders kept having to remind her what we ordered and asked when will it come out. Disappeared most of the times. Disappeared even after taking the payment. Overall just terrible. It was my first time but I would not recommend or go back.

Sunday brunch for our anniversary. We had outside table in the sun, so it was comfortable. Food was amazing, and ample mimosas made a perfect meal.

Fun place to celebrate. We went with the $35/person Ambar experience, which let us taste a lot of different items from the menu and order seconds of our favorites. The slow-cooked meats were particularly savory. We also loved the Balkan lasagna.

We had the most delicious brunch at Ambar! We are so happy we made a reservation, we were seated at our reserved outdoor seating right away. The service was excellent and the value for the Ambar experience brunch is unreal. The 25 cent drinks are a steal! Definitely would recommend dining at Ambar Arlington especially for brunch!

The brunch option is a great deal! I would just recommend that people keep in mind that the plates are pretty small so if everyone at your table wants a dish, you should order at least 2.

We were seated indoors at the lower level. The ambiance was great, very different from other restaurants in the area. We instantly noticed it was like a cafeteria, quite loud from all of the conversations going on, but you couldn’t catch one conversation in detail so no one was more loud than the next table. We participated in the $34 brunch special which is a great deal. The service was great! Some plates came quicker than others which was annoying but understandable being that everyone was ordering multiple things at the same time. We loved the drinks. I tried a Bloody Mary for the first time and i am not a fan lol but i can see why others like it!

Only outdoor tables were available and even with heat lamps it was very cold. Being on the street was very noisy as well. But as always the food was great and the Balkan Experience was a good value. Drinks were a bit pricey.
