I like the sandwich that I has as a main course, and a piece of chocolate layer cake for dessert. I also liked the décor.

It's a typical diner next to the highway. Good service, good food. Great for someone who's just passing through or for locals who happen by.

Upon entering this establishment, you automatically get that sense of cleanliness, no odors, no flies on sills, clean tables, great service, very modern, like downstate. Waitress smiles, socializes lightly, takes your order, very pleasant. Ordered burger deluxe which was made to my personal satisfaction. Well done. My companion was content as well. Will I return here again, of course, I... More

I enjoy sitting at the counter and ordering my special, a swiss mushroom burger with onion rings on top, side of fries, pickle and cole slaw. Soups are good. Breakfasts are good, service is diner perfect, friendly staff calling you sweetie and honey. Deserts are homemade great I take some home at times!

Just off Exit 19 on the Northway (I-87) this place has a wide variety and solid breakfast food (all day ) but the corned beef hash is highly suggestive of canned (all uniformly cut). Although they have fancier food, I have found the fancier stuff less consistent in quality but who goes to a Diner for Prime Rib? It's OK... More

I have yet to have good food and good service at this diner. I've had good food with poor service and I've had poor food with great service. On this visit I had a Patty Melt. It was supposed to have "carmelized" onions. I got onions that had been thrown on the grill and had gotten a little cooked but... More

After driving hours north of NYC, it's nice to find a place where you can stretch your legs, get quick eats, enjoy a friendly atmosphere and get back on your way. The Ambrosia Diner is that place. It has standard diner food, even has the pages and pages of menu that us downstaters call the diner-bible. Whenever we've stopped here,... More

The food is ok. I ordered the chicken salad. It was ok. The prices were a bit high. I may go back again to try something else.

My husband and I stopped here for breakfast on our road trip from Vermont to NYC. I had the country breakfast & hubby had the breakfast club sandwich - both meals were served quickly, hot and they tasted delicious. Huge portions, attentive waiting staff who were very friendly, would definitely recommend this place.
