Have been to Amber Cafe a number of times and always had great food. However, last night was very disappointing. The butternut squash soup was very good, but cold. I had the short ribs and it was more like a beef stew. The beef was very dry and the scallops were over cooked. Out of the four of us dining,... More

We've been enjoying Amber for years. My recent experience was as good as any in the past. Good drinks, excellent service, differentiated food (from other local restaurants) - we had salads, hangar steak, and salmon. I love going to Amber.

Recently went to a wine dinner at Amber and everything was terrific. The food was wonderful, well prepared and the wine pairing was perfect. The restaurant is visually appealing with high ceilings and interesting art. A lovely outdoor covered patio in back offers al fresco seating. The regular menu looked interesting with mid- priced offerings. Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I had a very pleasant evening celebrating our anniversary with dinner at the Amber Cafe. We particularly enjoyed the covered patio seating. Service was attentive and not rushed. My lamb was very well done. Wine list was OK, but would have appreciated more options by the glass. Upscale in terms of pricing, but not out of line... More

We made our rez on open table and requested the corner table by the window. Thy were nice enough to make this request. Our waiter, Fabian, was excellent! $18.00 bottle sold for $58.00. Come on, thats a little crazy, Our Burrata appetizer was fantastic, served with arugula, sweet red onion and cherry tomatoes. I'd definitely recommend that you try this.... More

Our dinners were so delicious and Chris was an excellent waiter! Service staff was also very attentive. In addition to dinner we had a soup, salad and dessert which were also fantastic. We'll definitely be back!!!

The best restaurant in Westmont. Bring your checkbook though. It's good to treat yourself once in awhile. The portions are small, but exquisite.

We've been to Amber a few times over the years; summer is great time to dine at Amber because of its outdoor patio. It is a lovely setting that stays cool under a lighted tent. The last time we were there, however, the food was quite underwhelming and the service dragged. Normally, we savor every bite and eat past being... More

Three of us dined at Amber last evening and it was the perfect spot; we sat in the front room and there were only 2 other occupied tables during our stay so conversation was easily heard. The waiter was attentive and helpful with suggestions both for wine and for dinner choices. The Salmon was a very large portion, perfectly prepared... More

Love the restaurant - cozy, outstanding food, very good service and unpretentious - I love their meatloaf - not what you think! My wife usually gets fish which is always good. Highly recommended for foodies from western suburbs of Chicago.
