Morgan Song's own daughter greeted and seated us to our booth. Many have raved about this chef's amazing talent, including the Sac Bee's food critic, BAR. But for us, the good vibe we received during our visit to celebrate my dad's birthday, started with the...More

Had dinner for the first time at Ambience. We had a good time with friends. For dinner, you can select either the 5 course or seven course chef's tasting menu. Only thing is, we were told everyone at the table had to select the same....More
