    Frightening!

    The calamari seemed frozen pre-packaged, the sushi rice seemed stale and yellow, the salad garnish was browning at the edges. The Asian chicken dish was a fried chicken cutlet with the store-bought Thai dipping sauce and some frozen corn thrown in. This was the worst meal I've had in ages and the price point suggested that the restaurant would use fresh, quality ingredients. Disappointing and quite frightening that it is still in business and people will tolerate such rubbish in NYC!

    Subpar

    I've just had one of the most disappointing dinners in quite awhile. All the rolls at Amber are poor for the singular reason that the seaweed used is awfully stale and rubbery. That makes for far-too-chewy rolls and an all around borderline texture. Sushi is a delicate food, and an error this fundamental throws everything off. I actually found myself spitting food out -- I can't remember the last time I've done this, especially with sushi. Perhaps I caught them on a bad night, but, honestly, it's not worth the risk, the trouble, or your hard-earned, rapidly-depreciating dollars to give this place a shot.

    our favorite sushi place on the west side

    My boyfriend and I are trying to go to every sushi place in manhattan, and this is our favorite besides nobu. The fish is fresh, delicious cuts, and I really love the ambience, though it can be loud at dinner rush. It's a bit pricey and we find we're often there a few hours, but that's okay.

    Disappointing food

    On a snowy night my boyfriend and i decided to stay local and give amber a second try. I got a martini which was the best part of the meal. The salmon skin salad had some sort of bar b que sauce on it, the spicy tuna tortillas was absoutely tasteless and the sushi was yuck and bland! I definitely do not advise this place- overpriced bland food.

    love this place

    a bit on the pricy side, but well worth it for an evening out with friends or a date. funky ambience, great mood lighting, amazingly quick and attentive service, delicious drinks (esp the lychee martini). my favorite sushi restaurant, despite the fact that the food itself does not stand out so much from any other pretty good and cheaper sushi place. its an experience, and i highly recommend it.

    Darn good sushi

    Never having been to Japan, I suppose I must admit that I don't know what "real" sushi is all about, but this place is divine as far as my uneducated palate is concerned. It's not your father's sushi bar. It's a very creative menu extremely interesting and fun to explore. Two thumbs up, even if they are both mine.
