Service
 
“Sophisticated” sorts are drawn to these “Milano-in-NY” cafes where “chichi” Italian nibbles are served in a “civilized” atmosphere; the “bustling” digs draw a “stylish” crowd that doesn't mind paying “sky-high prices” to “see and be seen.”

Always a fun stop. Biggest issue is the Air condition situation. It’s either too cold or too hot. No proper air ventilation. Second, for a vegetarian they give only one option, plain pasta with garlic. We didn’t complain, just went to a vegan place to get my bite to eat. Pasta was really undercooked and so boring. Why they choose spaghetti over angel hair is odd for such a fine place. The bottle of wine we ordered was 18 years old and was superb. Love their salads & gelato. service was great.

Good food. A bit noisy when patrons are tourists who don't respect the no cell phone policy. Service is impeccable. They will take care of you at a high cost.

Whether you are stopping by for a coffee to go and a delicious croissant/tasty treat, or you plan to stay for dinner, Sant Ambroeus is definitely an experience. This iconic Upper East Side eatery is always hopping. Everything about this place is upscale, but you can find something for any budget. Just walking around with their signature salmon pink-colored coffee cups makes your day feel brighter. The best red-eye coffee in town — and take the time to have hot chocolate standing at the bar. It’s a real experience.
