Amber Kipsbay

Amber serves up delicious Asian-fusion inspired dishes to New Yorkers and tourists alike. This Asian-inspired restaurant and lounge is located in North Gramercy in Manhattan. With great music and lively décor, this Asian restaurant has a relaxed, downtown feel.

Amber offers a delicious menu with fresh Asian cuisine in a great ambiance. They have two floors and high ceilings for an overall unique experience. On the first floor, there is a large bar with two large flat screen TVs and open windows that allow for fun people-watching.

In the main dining area on the second level, there is a giant Buddha on top of a Koi pond.

"Having eaten in Amber before, I knew there was a very high noise level, especially during "happy hour", so because our reservation was for 6:30, I requested the quietest table upstairs, and that's what I got. That is until a very cute an exuberant party of 6 or 8 young women (couldn't tell because they kept coming and going!) sat down.
The food and service were excellent. I told the waitress we were in no hurry, so she let us finish our drinks before coming over for our orders. She was very sweet and informative. We both enjoyed our drinks and dinner very much, but truly, this place is not for people who want to have a conversation during dinner."
