Was going to go to Peter Luger's for our Anniversary, but when we got there they rudely said not accepting walk-ins as much as they have online reservation site now and "dismissed us". Many empty tables at 5:00 pm, too so their website is misleading! I remembered seeing Amber Steak House listed as one of top 10 steakhouses in Brooklyn, and was a brief ride from there. We made a reservation on open table and drove there. From the beginning, everyone there was so very nice. It was the best, most amazing ribeye steak we have ever had and also had extensive wine/cocktail list. They had the best home made steak sauce, too! Our waiter, Chris was excellent! As far as dessert, save room for the huge slice of heavenly carrot cake, you will not regret it! This is the steak place to be, we will be going back always and telling all our friends and family too! A gem in Brooklyn!

Food was solid and the steaks were excellent. Cocktails were really good. The restaurant perhaps lacked a bit of atmosphere

Staff are friendly and professional. Food is ok but I was expecting a better steak. Our NY strip was cooked through more like a medium well done while we ordered medium rare and the waiter insisted it was medium rare. So that was a bit disappointing. The ribeye on the bone was delicious. All 3 appetizers that we ordered were ok, nothing spectacular (we ordered escagot, beets cappacio and portobello mushrooms). Overall it was ok but we will probably won't go back.

I have gone to Amber Steak House various times and each time the service level has always been exceptional. Never had a bad experience , would recommend to many and never feel rushed to leave. A great location and asset to the neighborhood.

The food and wine were excellent. I had the filet mignon and it was made to perfection. My companions had the chicken and port tenderloin and both enjoyed their meals. The only thing by the end of the evening the restaurant was crowded and the noise level went up but not enough that you couldn't hear yourself.

It was amazingly delicious. Upscale but not uncomfortable. Everyone was extremely polite. I had a glass of rose and it was the best rose I have had i didn’t even get to ask which bottle it was from.

Nice gem of a steakhouse in Brooklyn. All our food was perfect. The steaks, filets and tbone cooked perfectly. Sides, veggies and potatoes excellent all with good portions. Only gripe is service could have been a little better, waters refilled, ask us if we want more drinks, etc... we weren’t exactly dressed up and at first seemed like we were ignored but waitress finally warmed up and made conversation at end of our meal. Definitely will go back.

Great steak, very good drinks. Affordable drinks, especially for a steakhouse.

Improvement tips: Bread the calamari a bit differently, seems to be a pancake style batter, but it did come nice and crispy. Recommend serving with banana peppers. Find a new sauce rather than the wasabi its served with, wasnt very tasty. Perhaps an Aoli? Spicy marinara was excellent though.

Steak Sauce: Seems to be A1? Au jus or something custom might be a bit better.

All around, Bone-In Ribeye was cooked perfectly. Friendly and fast service. Will have to come back when we're a bit more hungry and try some more delicious sides.

I decided to take my boyfriend here for his bday, and he loved it. We each had appetizers (buratta, and stuffed portobello mushroom) which were both excellent. We shared the porter house with sides of house potatoes (delish!) and creamed spinach.

Overall a nice little gem in Brooklyn. I would come back for sure!

Food was great. Steaks were a great price. Alot of side options. We had a bottle of wine, appetizer (calamari was flavorful) 16oz and 24oz steak, plus 2 sides. The bill was under $ 200. Waitress was very attentive. We are going back for the 48ozs to share. That looked so delicious .

The customer service was very good. Everyone was friendly and smiling. We felt like the staff really liked working there. The shrimp cocktail was cooked perfectly. The consistency of the steak tare tare was more like a regular hamburger than a ground up filet. There were mushrooms in the tare tare which I didn’t care for. There was a regular raw egg on the plate instead of a quail egg or organic egg. The steak cooked medium was very good and the chicken was juicy and tender- cooked perfectly. The carrot cake was a nice treat after dinner. The bartender was experienced and made very tasty drinks. The wine selection was on point.
