    Can’t wait to come back! Service was excellent, drinks were perfection and very good food. The coliflor was OMG! Was too full for dessert. Prices are higher so I will save this place for drinks after work and special occasions.

    The food was outstanding. I had only had their hot chocolate and churros previously due to the pandemic, so was quite pleased with how good their food is.

    Menu is limited but the server is superb! He is extremely accomplished and accommodating. At times when we dine, especially when I dine, I go for well mannered servers and he is exemplary. He also manages the cashier and takes orders and serves, I mean how excellent is this. To me, I would definitely go back just to have that wonderful experience with his kindness again.

    So I want to say I love this place but I can't. The food is very good but the last 2 times I've been there they struggle with getting orders correct. Once I got a super rare steak when I wanted it medium..so I had to sit there while my sister finished her meal waiting on a new one.The next time I ordered the omlette and told the waitress are there lots of onions inside of it because I don't like them. She said no..then I received an omlette FULL of onions...again had to wait for it to be redone. I really hope they fix these issues.

    Delicious fine Latin American food served as small plates in a casual space. Sampled 6 between three of us and it was plenty. Stuffed pepper, braised lamb, rice stuffed squash, octopus and veggie medley were all flavorful and unique. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. Somewhat expensive but it’s worth it!

    Close your eyes and just point at the menu because you can't go wrong with any choice at Amerikas. Our go-to starter is the Coliflor, but that Chile Relleno is outstanding too. If surf and turf is your jam, I recommend ordering the Carne Asada and the Pulpo. And while you're waiting, try the Surf and Turf taco, which is a combo of shrimp, chorizo, and potatoes.

    As I am eating more plant-based, loved the vegetarian food options right at the start of the menu. The Calabaza (mushroom risotto with truffle oil in a roasted acorn squash with spicy sauces) was so good! I was just coming back to make a reservation with my family there for tonight. Very good food and we had the margaritas which were delicious too!

    Always love the food at Amerikas. We enjoyed the chili relleno, hummus, carne asada, taquitos, and surf and turf tacos. All were outstanding. Chili relleno and carne asada were highlights. Service was good…maybe a little too much. We felt rushed a couple of times. We’ll definitely return!

    This was my second time dining at Amerikas, and I was really looking forward to it. However, this visit was disappointing. The wait staff seemed bored, and added nothing to the experience. I had requested a window table, but was told the empty one available was for a party of 3 or more. We were seated at a table right next to one with 3 small children, even though at least 4 other tables were available. The food was good, but I don't think I'll be going back.

    Tacos, enchiladas and omelette were all very good. It was the breakfast/lunch menu on a Sunday. Food prices were reasonable and average. But $4 for a glass of orange juice? Brightly decorated with lots of color. Too many hard surfaces make for a noisy atmosphere. Dining in mid-afternoon when it is slower would be more enjoyable for conversation. Overall, I would visit again.

    The food was amazing and the service was delightful. My friends were happy with the table in the window and we didn’t feel rushed. One friend had not been there before. It gets very loud when it gets busier which was the case about half way through our visit. My whole family loves this place and I truly appreciate the multiple vegetarian options.
