We had a great night with friends. Very cool place with amazing service. The food is really good. Just desert was not that good, and really noisy. The Lebanese wine was great. Would come back anytime.

The food was very good.
Our server, Nicole, was absolutely lovely, patient, and very knowledgeable about the ingredients in the dishes regarding gluten.
Menu would be nicer with more than one item, pana cotta, for dessert for the gluten free guests.
Rice pudding is common in Mediterranean cuisine and welcome, a flourless chocolate cake would be awesome.
Filtered water machine is a great thing.
Tired of paying so much for bottled water.
Noise level was extreme and difficult with only a few tables in use and primarily large parties seated along the same wall with loud music also on. Loved when they see switched from pop to more appropriate Mediterranean music halfway through!
Better to spread folks out for a pleasant experience in this small restaurant.

Very delicious! Tons of vegan options and very authentic. The only downside is it’s very loud din. The food is worth it though. Definitely returning.

Amar was spectacular. From the food to the service I can’t say enough about how much we loved our experience. The owner is a great guy. Service was attentive and the food was the best version of itself that we have ever had.

We had heard really great things about this new place. The decor is nice, the server Elvie was polite and very informative about the menu.

We had the babaganoush as an app and it was delish. The mains were kabobs, which seemed dry and overcooked. The bill for 2 with tip was $130 which I consider high for what is basically a kabob place.

Everything is always so delicious unique flavors this was my second visit and my favorites were the pepper dip, cauliflower, meat pastries. For desert the baklava and panacotta were a nice balance between sweet and not too sweet. I have also had the cheese for two. They are all so good!!!! So nice to see the owner waking around visiting tables. A great addition to the ave. Also good for vegetarians many meat free choices.

Highly recommend. My husband and I are pretty picky but both agree this is a great restaurant. Service is fast and friendly. The food is delicious and fresh (there were a couple dishes we didn’t care for but that was a matter of taste). Prices are reasonable. We’ll be back. Gladly.

I would recommend this restaurant, it is right on Atlantic Ave, with a great ambiance. The food for me personally was average, although we just had appetizers. I hope every small local restaurant suceeds.

Tabouli was 5 starts, fresh and flavourful
Babba ghanoush was exceptional
Bread was perfect
Grilled halloumi was exceptional but it’s meant to be eaten warm, so tuck into that one first!

Food was delicious. They have several vegan options, including dessert! We sat outside, unfortunately outdoor seating is on a busy avenue. Lots of people walking by. Service was excellent. A bit on the pricey side.

We are Delray Beach residents, but had not heard of AMB...So we said...LETS GO! I have lived and visited the middle east very often as i was in the USAF and flew for the airlines. Its said the the best chefs from there are Lebanese and it was so very true at AMB. We enjoyed numerous plates of Messe...try as many as you can! but do save a little room for the desserts. And of course it takes a capable and dedicated owner to make it run smoothly..and there you have Nicholas! nothing short of fantastic !!!oh, i am exonerated as he told me they have only been there for 4 months. Enjoy Tim & Donna

Due to the heightened noise level inside (too small a space for so many people) we dined outside which is not a pleasant experience on a busy street.

Discourages customers who actually want to talk to each other from dining there.
