It was a quiet afternoon, between lunch and dinner, when I went to Amber's. Always looking for a great Mexican restaurant find, I was very hopeful that the slow time would make for a very tasty meal. Unfortunately, this did not happen. The food was...More

This is a good, honest Mexican restaurant that serves the usual fare. There are a couple of differences that distinguish it: It has the brightest, best salsa I have had in a restaurant. It does not scorch you mouth--in fact, it's not hot at all....More

Food average at best. Both entrees were not even very hot. My entrée came out way before my husband's food. The waitress was on her phone the whole time; which has happened on several occasions. Don't plan on going again.

Consistently good Mexican food. The salsa and chips are excellent and I love their carnitas and tostadas. My husband enjoys the chile verde burritos.

Amber's Cantina is just plainly great. They never make you wait for a table very long, and get your food our quickly. The staff are very kind, and are attentive to your every need. I recommend any one of their burritos, they are amazing, but...More

I've been to Amber's Cantina several times and it has never disappointed! The wait staff are always so friendly, food is great and always prompt. Friday nights are busy, we got in before 5.30pm and got the last table! A very popular wee restaurant.

You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu! The couple who prepare the food have been doing it faithfully for 20+ years. Enchilada Durango and Mexican Pizza are my favs. My guy gets Carnitas or Enchilda Pie. Everything super fresh. Service (usually) good.

I'm quite surprised by the differences in the reviews here..looks like you either love it or really don't like. I'm obviously in the first category. We (my friend) and I always have the same thing...the Pollo Ranchero....it's dee-lish! We do a walk/hike and come for...More

I have been eating at Ambers since it opened. When I want Mexican food, this is where I go. Yes, it's in a strip mall but sometimes that is where the hidden gems are. It's near the St Regis and Ritz. My husband, who doesn't...More
