What a beautiful way to spend New Year’s Eve! One of the most memorable meals we’ve had and the ambiance is special for a cozy, romantic evening. Get a table by one of the fireplaces.

The Ambassador is great! We've been to the restaurant many times over the years and decided to book a spot for my dad's birthday. They reserved half of the main dining room for us, were easy going, attentive, and the food was great (as always). I highly recommend The Ambassador for events or even a casual shoes weekday lunch.

As usual the Ambassador Dining Room did not disappoint. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The food always delicious was terrific. The holiday lights and fireplaces made it a magical experience once again.

A perfect, quiet place for a special occasion meal. The Indian food is very good. The ambiance is refined and elegant. The service was excellent the night we dined - although it was mid-week and there were not many customers. A hidden gem.

The setting is beautiful in the old Ambassador building. We sat near a fireplace which was very nice since it was a cold night. The service was friendly with attention to detail. However, while the food was good, it honestly not the best Indian food I’ve had. The portions were small and the price was high. As an example, we ordered a shrimp dish for $30 and it contained only 3 shrimp that were over cooked and tough. There are Indian restaurants closer to where we live that have better food at a lower price so unfortunately it won’t be worth it to return.

The experience was mediocre, at best. Our server assumed that we were ordering the buffet and offered no information about a regular lunch menu. She also seemed bothered by our questions and any requests that we made. The food was "just okay."
During past visits, which I'm told occurred while under different ownership, the experience was quite different. A member of our party, who was a regular patron of the past Ambassador Dining Room, stated on our way out, "I will never come here again."
Nor will I.

The restaurant was decorated beautifully for Christmas with two fireplaces blazing. The tables were more than adequately spaced apart and the wait staff who were just the right amount of attentive were masked. Relaxed , quiet atmosphere with bounteous food made for a festive evening for six. Plus very special attention to my spouse as we celebrated his birthday. This place is a jewel!

We w ere four people. Three were satisfied but not The fourth person, the most talented cook in the group, was served N over cooked, dried out main course of shrimp which had the texture of dried out shoe leather and no taste at all. The chef prepared another serving which was undercooked and raw. The owner offered a credit of the course of the entree.

Hopefully this was a unique experience which will not recur should we choose to return

It had been a while since we had gone to the Ambassador. We had heard that it there had been a change in ownership. In the past, the food was always good (though at some point there was a bit of dip in quality, at least in take out). These days, however, it is outstanding. Best Indian food we had in years.

We made a 7:15 reservation on a Friday night. Waited almost 10 minutes at the host stand before we were seated. Waited 25 minutes at the table, and nobody even came to take our drink order. We got up to leave, and told the manager on the way out that we never had a server come to the table. He argued that "he sent someone over to us." The restaurant was not busy (maybe 12 tables) and they could have been short staffed, but this was pretty unacceptable. I don't believe I've had such poor service anywhere else in Baltimore. We walked around the corner and had a lovely meal at Cypriana.

The ambiance is the most special part of dining at The Ambassador. While I would not say the service on the evening of our visit was exceptional(some attentativeness was lacking), it was very good. The food was outstanding. I enjoyed the squash soup immensely, and it was the perfect accompaniment to the first day of autumn. The chicken in my meal was only slightly dry, but everything else was delicious!
