This is a very warm, CLEAN and friendly place. Our waitress was terrific. However the reason you come into a diner is to eat. The panini was not a true panini, salad drowning in dressing, onion rings way to greasy, liver and Brussels sprouts over...cooked. This was only one meal but we would not return.More

Poor service, unprofessional service. Came around 8:30 to dine with my husband was given a menu printed on office paper with font too small to read. Waiters casually slinging profanity in front of diners and to add injury to insult the service was slow, our...waitress didn’t know what a Salisbury steak was. All in all this once favorite neighborhood breakfast stop is a shadow of its former glory days. I do hope for better days for Ambrosia Diner. Maybe next time it will be better.More

As soon as we walked into Ambrosia Diner I could tell it was under new management since our last visit about 18 months prior. It has always been one of the places we could count on for a good meal. Fortunately, we were not disappointed....Our favorite Gyros and Greek salad were on the menu and just as good, if not better than before. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive and we felt comfortable dining there. We will be back again soon.More

Great service and good food from this establishment. My wife and I stopped by for a quick lunch bite and wait times for food arrival were minimal. Between the burger I ordered and the buffalo chicken wrap she got, the food was on point. I...can honestly say this has been the first spot I have ordered a burger and it was still actually hot, not just warm, arriving to the table. Overall great service, food and prices.More

This restaurant was fantastic! My Fiancé & I were unsure where to get breakfast. This was certainly a great idea. Our waitress was EXCEPTIONAL!! Anything we needed, we received. Also, very sweet & knowledgeable. The food was cooked to perfection. Timely service. Etc. it was...so good, we returned the following morning. We usually like to try different places. But with how good the food & service was, we just had to return. I didn’t get her name, but she was spectacular!!! Thank you Ambrosia!More

I stopped in with my wife for lunch on the first day of Spring. My wife had the Chicken Salad Club Sandwich w/ fries and a Split Pea Soup. I had the Sausage & Peppers Parmesan Sandwich w/ fries. It also came with a Manhattan...Clam Chowder Soup. Very good meals and Roxana was a very friendly and attentive server. Very clean restaurant with constant sanitizing in this time we are in. This makes a huge difference in the fact that your dining experience is up to par.More

The food is greasy, décor is 70's , staff is rather grumpy, and food is very over priced for what you get. All the food is very greasy. Will never go there again!

We enjoyed driving around the town of Catskill, with its cool vibe and old but beautiful buildings. It was very busy with crazy traffic. We spied this retro looking diner and turned around to go back. Easy parking in back. The building is very interesting....Enjoyed checking out the decor. Sat a bit waiting for a menu. They have a huge menu with very diverse offerings. Good dessert choices. Service was not the best here, unfortunately. And the food was nothing but average. A bit of a disappointment, especially considering the price. I don't particularly recommend. However, maybe it was an off day. We were there mid day, so not busy at all. So service and food should have been better.More

I had chili, my friend had Yankee bean soup. Neither of us could eat our food. It wasn’t just a little too salty, it was all we could taste. I understand soup and chili may keep cooking over hours and evaporating, so salt concentration increases....Chef needs to adjust for this. Service was fine, diner is cute and clean. Too bad about the salt.More
