The food was very good, as was the table service. The ambience was lovely on the terrace albeit a bit chilly. The problem came when we paid the bill. We gave the server our credit card. She in turn gave it to the manager to process. He came back to us and said we had not left a credit card. He was very defensive. We looked all over the restaurant to no avail. Our dinner companions paid for dinner. No apologies or offer for any compensation was offered. We had to immediately cancel the card and go through the hassle of notifying all our automated payments. It left a very bad taste in our mouth. To top it off, the manager found the lost card two days later! Very bad service on the part of the manager.
Excellent food personable service at an outstanding price
Lovely experience, yummy food, great service as always
I am always excited to bring a first timer to the Ambassador as I know the diner will be awed by the food and the surroundings. Such was the case for this visit! The owner always makes the rounds to thank diners for coming without being intrusive
Lovely setting with authentic Indian cuisine.
Fresh ingredients with vivid spices.
Nice time as usual. It’s a favorite date spot. Cant wait for them to start brunch again.
The Ambassador Restaurant has always been one of my faves! Was sad to see that the Sunday Bruch buffet was not there, but during times of COVID, is understandable. The owner said that if he can, he will re-launch the Sunday buffet in June or July.
This was not our first visit to the Ambassador, but it was by far the best. The evening was a celebration for our son and his fiancee, and the wait staff took very good care of us. I have a pepper allergy, so eating Indian cuisine is usually risky. The kitchen prepared a shrimp dish that was not only free of pepper, but delicious. The food that the rest of our party enjoyed was outstanding. The evening was chilly, but the patio with the fireplaces kept us comfortable in a room that was open to the outside. This setting was not only romantic, but compliant with COVID guidelines. We will definitely be back soon.
I’ve always loved the Ambassador. The staff is always gracious, the ambiance peaceful and pretty, and the food delicious. It’s definitely the best outdoor dining setting in Baltimore. They could perhaps do a bit more with their wine list (more choices, perhaps recommend pairings?) but this is only a suggestion, not a complaint. Dinner, lunch, or brunch buffet, this place never disappoints!!
outstanding service excellent food and well priced!
This is our perfect night out for dinner, we’re beginning to make a weekly habit of it.
Delivers quality food in a lovely atmosphere with lots of air coming through the open garage doors. Would love an expanded beverage listing on the menu.
The Ambassador has always been one of my favorite restaurants. I had forgotten that it was sold by the original owner and my previous experience there after the new owner took over wasn’t great. But I figured they had worked out the kinks. They did not. The food was good but not as good as it once was. The service was TERRIBLE. Our appetizers came quickly but they changed the recipe of the meat samosa and it’s not as good anymore. Then, it took a long while for our main courses. No one checked on us after our meal was served and our empty plates sat in front of us for 30 min before I flagged down a waiter. When our waiter didn’t come back, I had to ask for the dessert menu. They didn’t have a dessert menu but told us what they offered. It took an unusually long time for us to get one cup of coffee and one dessert (rice pudding—not as good as I remembered from previous visits under former ownership). I didn’t even have to say anything and they comped our coffee and dessert. I am not likely to return. I’d rather go to Peerce’s (now owned by former owners of Ambassador) which is always a delicious meal with exceptional service, the way The Ambassador used to be.
They were very accommodating for the vegan in our party. Hopefully, they will consider adding more vegan choices.
Excellent food and great friendly professional service
This is a neighborhood gem within walking distance. The food and service never disappoint and the outdoor seating (especially by the fire cannot be beat).
I am vegan and there is something for everyone on the menu
Great service excellent food. Always pleasant atmosphere.
It had been some while that we had been. The food had always been good, but these days it is great. Service was very friendly. All in all, a very pleasant dining experience.
The waitress when asked if they had plastic utensils told me and my fiance' no, I got up and asked the owner if they had plastic utensils and he said yes, when the plastic utensils were received they had brown and black spots on them. It was a terrible experience.
The food was great. I recommend the veggie samosa and chicken biryani. I can’t wait to try more dishes!
Food is excellent and the service was very good. Very much a nice restaurant and great ambience.
My favorite restaurant in Baltimore. It's perfect for a romantic dinner, or for a larger gathering of family or friends. The food is delicious and the ambiance is superb. Even during covid, they have a set up that makes sense and feels safe.
The Ambassador is a gem. We loved our food, the service, and the ambiance. One of our favorite date night spots in the city.
Our visit was enjoyable. The setting is wonderful and the staff attentive and helpful. Keep up the good work.
Please try this neighborhood gem! Lovely, lovely outdoor setting, with fireplaces and heat lamps. I had heard from acquaintances lamenting that "it just wasn't the same" (i.e. as good) as when the previous owners were at the helm...I disagree! The food was outstanding and, unlike during previous ownership, when you ask for it spicy, it comes out spicy--the new chef is not afraid to honor your request! I always got the impression that the previous owners were afraid to make things spicy for fear of disappointment or complaint. Not so any longer--delicious, flavorful, right amount of heat. The lunch special is a great way to try their menu--the garlic naan is the best! Service was spot on, just the right amount, not overly attentive, which can be bothersome. We will be heading back there soon!
Great lunch special! Their naans are amazing.
Great atmosphere excellent courteous service and outstanding food. Only parking is a challenge during some times of day.
We LOVE this restaurant! The food is amazing, staff is so friendly, and outside is beautiful and romantic.
Indian food and an ambiance that can not be beat!
The dining experience was perfect...attentive - but not overly attentive - staff...beautiful garden...delicious food...
It was me and my husband first time eating @ Ambassador Dining Room I can say the ambience was nice and the food met our expectations. We will dine here again.
We enjoyed the outdoor patio with heaters and fire places. Go! Enjoy! Support this long-standing Baltimore institution.
Chana Masala, Chicken Tikka Masala, Naan, Samosas...all were divine.
We have not been going out because of CoVID and it was our anniversary and really wanted to go. This is one of our favorite places and they offer outdoor dining so we thought we would try. We were so thrilled to find it felt very safe and they took all precautions seriously. The food was amazing, the wait staff was top notch and the ambiance you can’t beat. I would definitely recommend this and I will be going back.
Excellent price for exceptional food with prompt service in a socially distance safe environment.
Excellent lunch time meal at an outstanding price!
It’s the most relaxing and beautiful place to eat in Baltimore!
I took two friends who have never been to the Ambassador dining room despite living less than a mile away! I can assure you they will be back!
The outdoor space is beautiful and the food and service are both superb.
Excellent ambiance, food & service.
Wonderful decor, attentive staff, even management engaged with the clientele. The food is exquisite, tasty, intriguing, fresh/clean & balanced.
