The restaurant is a nice vibe and brunch is a great deal, but the food and service can be spotty. Some things definitely felt more mass produced with less care and service was slow at times. But if you go knowing what to expect it's fun and a few plates are gems.

Great spot, good food, good service, nice ambiance. Only reason for the 4 and not 5 stars is due to then braised lamb and the meatballs being way too salty.

Nice dining experience. The menu is a little confusing in reference to the pricing - the individual dishes do not list prices, but at the top it states the price for any and all of the items... As a first time guest I was a bit confused, thinking that all the listed items were individually orderable as in a la carte menu. Turned out, the top price was for everything (sans drinks), and the place was similar to a "buffet" but with each of the items served by servers/waiters... Once that concept was understood, the rest was easy... Good experience.

Always excellent -- Love the small plates, and each one is unique. Noise level is quite high, but thanks to the pandemic, there seem to be fewer people inside. And I've identified a table where I can hear people fairly well. Truly one of my favorite restaurants.

We visited Ambar for bottomless brunch. It was nice enough, however I think the staff missed the “bottomless” information. We didn’t drink a lot as the drinks were quite strong, but there was more than one occasion where we needed both alcoholic beverage and water top ups. At one point our waiter completely disappeared and couldn’t be found, and we had to speak to another member of staff to order food.

We also had to chase up several food orders - items ordered right at the beginning of brunch only appeared right at the end. I’m pretty sure we also received food we didn’t order. In addition to this, as a group, we ordered items thinking that multiples of the same item would come on the same plate. Nope! Multiple plates for individual waffle quarters or tiny burgers. It was baffling. Overall it was nice enough, but I’ve had better brunches elsewhere in Clarendon.

Food was OK, I've been here several times and the food has been much better before, somethings were cold and others were just not seasoned well. Overall it's a great deal and a fun time for large groups

Simply spectacular from beginning to reluctant end…we were simply full! Extremely pleasant and gracious staff and the food was incredible. Had family from out of town, who can be opinionated about food. Everyone proclaimed this the best dinner ever…and they can’t wait to return. On top of that exceptional value for the price. Will certainly be returning.

Ambar is a great place in Clarendon. The food is excellent, professional service. Their Sunday brunch is very popular. Perfect for a celebration with friends or family, or just to spend valuable time together with good food. This is not my first visit there, but certainly not the last one.

Ambar had been highly recommended and We were all so so unhappy with food, service and ambiance. Food was cold for almost all dishes. Service was very slow and uneven. It was one of the worst meal experiences I have ever had in our area and embarrassing because I had set up the reservation for the 4 of us. We are experienced diners and will never go back!

First time dining at Amber for brunch and I didn’t really enjoy my experience. The brunch includes unlimited tapas for $39.99 and .25 cent brunch drinks. We made 1:45p reservations and arrived on time. We were told it was a two-hour limit at the table and brunch ends at 3:30p, which was completely fine. But we barely got a chance to order food items and drinks because our server completely ghosted us. We had to flag down other servers and the manager to get an order. Every time she walked past, we would try to get her attention and she’ll respond “give me a minute, I’ll be right back,” and 15-20 minutes would past without us seeing her. I completely understand if she was swamped or overwhelmed, but at least communicate or ask for help. We as guest at a restaurant had to flag down management for assistance. At 3:15p we flagged her down and asked if we could at least order one more drink before 3:30p (because we literally had two drinks due to no service), and when she “tried” to put our order in she comes back and told us she was unable to ring our drinks because at 3:15p they shut everything down. I was completely confused because on the menu and website it clearly states brunch ends at 3:30p.

My first thought when I woke up in the morning was how delicious our dinner at Ambar the night before was. The food was excellent. Our server was excellent. I didn’t get his name but I wish I had so I could shout him out. Couldn’t be happier with the food and service we received. Great value for the money.

I am a little hard of hearing and we went on Friday night around 7pm so naturally the restaurant was busy. I didn’t find it too difficult to have a conversation or hear our server, which I was surprised by. I usually have a difficult time hearing in busy restaurants, but Ambar Arlington was very pleasant.

Great experience on the heated patio. Every dish was delicious (and we stuck with fish/vegetarian options only, of which there are plenty), and our preteen was thrilled not to be restricted on how much she could order. Service was friendly and informative. The stuffed piquillo peppers in particular were wonderful, as was the rainbow trout (fish of the day). And we are really glad that we went for the gnocchi dessert, even though it was extra cost. Worth the experience!

We've been here before for dinner and generally enjoyed it.
However, we recently went back for brunch and received a completely different experience. The food was mostly average to bad and carb-heavy (read: not even worth the price of AYCE brunch). The scrambled eggs were rubbery, cold, and not even seasoned. The donuts were hard as rocks. The mac and cheese was solid.
The service was absolutely terrible. While the waiters were friendly, they just... weren't there for the vast majority of the time. They were incredibly slow to take orders and to bring out the food. They also kept messing up our orders. We received several items that we definitely did not ask for. We were there for around 1hr and 45min for AYCE brunch and only managed to input two orders during that entire time.

The only saving grace was that service was terrible for everyone, not just our table. While we were eating, one group of diners got so tired of waiting on their very last order (a cheese pie) that they got up and left. A separate group got so tired of waiting for the waiter to pick up the check that they got up and brought it inside. A group of 3 sitting near us saw the service and decided to leave w/o ordering. A family sitting next to us was ignored for over 20 minutes while they tried to input their second order. They also didn't bring the dad any cutlery at first.

Absolutely awful and not worth it.

It's amazing! The Ambar experience - unlimited small plates. How can the kitchen turn out so many different dishes that are excellent. We were there for lunch and it wasn't very crowded so the noise level was "quiet". That's not the case when it's packed at night.
