    The food here was awesome. I was looking for something close to Disneyland, but away from the park as my parents were in for a conference at the Disneyland Hotel. The menu had various portions, from tapas style to gargantuan burgers. All the food we had was good as we ended up trying something from everyone's plate .

    I stood for a long time at the entrance before anyone acknowledged me. When I finally got seated I realized it was by the breakfast buffet and then sat through the noise of that being torn down. The service was slow, but the food was good. Wouldn't go back.

    Can one really expect decent fare, nicely prepared at a hotel just outside the gates of Disneyland? I was skeptical, but was nicely surprised at American Tavern. Everything was really nicely prepared and flavorful. The menu is varied and shows some creativity. The chef even came out, talked to us about our meals, and told us what he plans for the summer menu. It all sounded great. If I'm back in the area on business again, I would dine here.

    They were not aware of my reservation nor did they have a table ready for my party. 5-7 min later we get seated. No one advises us we need to pay in order to receive a plate. Finally somehow we find where to pay and I let them know we want the unlimited mimosas. Mimosas do not make it to our table for 30 MIN's!!! In the meantime one comes to check on us or bring clean plates. Some of my party used the same plate when returning to the buffet, my husband and I just left our dirty plates on the counter because we didn't know what to do with them. Finally, when we are pretty much done eating we receive our mimosas. I had really high hopes for this place but sadly it did not meet any of my expectations.

    Everything was great all the way down to the acoustic guitar player. Very nice, comfortable and affordable. Our server was just awful though. Management and the chef fixed everything. Can not rate this place horrible for one server messing it up. When my wife didn't like the plate she received they quickly brought her something else. They aim to please and are wonderful about it. Thanks to the wonderful management for saving the night. :)

    This was my husband and I's first time at American Tavern Eatery. We decided to try it because of their participation in Restaurant Week. How could we not? A 3 course menu AND beer for $30? Our server was Fernando and he was FANTASTIC! Could NOT have been happier with the service that he provided. He was very friendly and attentive. Our food was delicious and came out at a fairly quick pace. I started off the night with a house salad, then had the Shrimp Scampi for my entree and ended my meal with the brownie sundae. Everything I had met my expectations. We would DEFINITELY come back again!

    Dined on 2/13/2014
    We had our Valentines dinner here. The atmosphere loud. We ordered the bacon cheese fries with wine as an appetizer and it was very basic with fries completely covered with cheese. The cheese overpowered this dish and tasted like a processed cheese. We had the hangover burger and bacon wrapped scallops as our main course. The bacon scallops were again smothered in this processed cheese so at this point we told our waiter about this bland taste. He argued with us about the taste. We ordered a side salad just to get the taste out of our mouth. In the end I was shocked that not only were we charged for every dish, we were also charged for the side salad to cover the bad taste. Very disappointing. We would not go back.

    The restaurant was not very busy, but that did not improve the dinner service. Our server was very nice, but could not handle the few diners that were there. The food was a disappointment. Usually my complaint is that there is no seasoning. This time the salt flowed in abundance. Honestly one of the worst risottos I've eaten.

    We Had a Great dinner here after a long day of site seeing. The staff was friendly and attentive. I had fish tacos that were very good. Their pretzel bread was a hit with the kids. Given it was New Year's Eve and based on comments from other diners we didn't have high expectations. After dining we were pleasantly surprised. The live two piece band was a nice touch as well. The highlight of the evening was the great viewing spot this place has at the pool bar for the Disneyland fire works! I would go back to the restaurant.

    I choose this restaurant as it was in the Hotel Menage (near Disneyland) that we were at attending a meeting. We knew we would be out of the meeting at 7pm, and thought we would eat at their restaurant. It was a cold room, The tables were not attractively set up or inviting. It was more like a fast food restaurant with alcohol. We opted to eat at the bar, as there were more people there, and the Monday night football game was in. We had a cocktail, which was made ok. A little pricey for the place. My husband had their hamburger, which he said was good, but was not served with anything. I just had a flat bread 4 cheese pizza, which was tasty. Probably will never eat there again. This cost us $45.00.

    Had the best Thanksgiving turkey dinner at American tavern. It was the perfect place to take my family for a decadent meal on Thanksgiving. The bacon wrapped dates, shrimp scampi, and smoked salmon goat cheese spread were some of our favorites. Along with a delicious Traditional Turkey dinner. It was all to die for! And how could I forget the pumpkin pie and warm brownie topped with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Yummy! Hands down was one of the best Thanksgivings I've ever experienced. Thank you Tavern for giving us a wonderful experience.

    Located inside Hotel Menage, right next to Disneyland. Nice ambiance, good food. Real nice menu with great selections. All three of our meals and one appetizer was very good. If it hadn't been the non-attentive waitress (had to ask the busboy to find our waitress), who it turns out, walked past our table 4 times without acknowledging us, I would have rated the restaurant higher.

    With this restaurant's close location to the Disneyland parks, I thought it might be a real find for dining choices! My first visit was not promising. I will give it one more try. The restaurant is in the lobby of the Hotel Menage, and offers free parking. The light and open feel was a plus. Service was inattentive, our orders were incorrect and instead of refilling water, the water glasses were taken away. The food was okay and reasonable. Offering a version of caprese salad that was almost inedible seems misguided. If dining out and prompting your waiter to WRITE THE ORDER DOWN, ASKING for beverage refills, and being patient in an empty restaurant 30 minutes before you can order doesn't bother you, then American Tavern might be for you.

    Is the food good? It depends on what you ordered. The venue, being in a hotel, is not conducive to taking any chances so, despite the descriptions, everything is pretty ordinary. Having said that, it's great for families, due to the varied choices. The place is a bargain, compared to other Disney-local hotel restaurants. Overall, K'ya meets and exceeds their target market's needs.

    We were excited to try K'ya Street Fare because we love K'ya in Laguna Beach. This one was a huge disappointment. It looks like a Denny's coffee shop that they tried to dress up, but they didn't go far enough. You still feel like you are sitting in a Denny's booth. The food was OK. Some dishes were very good, some were marginal. The margarita comes in a water glass, not too classy. We made a reservation on Open Table, but we didn't need to...the place was nearly empty.

    Everything was good, but it started off bad. They let us sit at a tables which was wobbling. I mean, seriously get that fixed or don't sit your costumers there when there are 10 other tables open. The presentation of the food was just bleh. They gave us the food on cheap plates and there was no presentation. The food did taste pretty good, I've got to give them that. But if your looking for ambiance, great food, and some more upscale romantic place for you and your other half. This is not the place.

    I was really looking forward to eating here w my family. Unfortunately there was a complete lack of service. Our sever was almost never on the floor & if there's a delay in the kitchen keep your guests informed! Either he forgot something or the kitchen did. We waited 30 minutes for drinks after that we complained about the wait but it was pointless as we ended up leaving the restaurant 2 hours later because everything took so long to come out. Their soups and entrees weren't worth the wait as they were lacking in flavor and overly greasy. Great concept of having many cuisines available in one place....they just don't make any of it well. We all had the bread pudding for dessert and that was fantastic. Everything else was a complete let do.

    This was my FIRST oc restaurant week and my FIRST place I went to however it was not a good experience. The waiter didn't know anything about the menu. The food service was extremely slow (we were the first group there for lunch special). The food was not well prepared as for a spicy veggie soup there was shrimp and sausage (some kind of meat in it). Main course was poorly prepared as well. By the time we left we had been there almost 2 hours. I will not be going back there again nor will I suggest it. I will be trying another place and I hope this place will improve my experience on oc restaurant week.

    Eclectic collection of different types of food. Everything from American to Thai to Korean to Hawaiian. Maybe too broad. Chicken wrap was cloyingly sweet -- very strange for what's usually a savory dish. Waitress claimed dish was good, but perhaps too much mint for her, but no mint evident in my dish. Kim Chee was decent -- how much can you expect for a restaurant within a mile of Disneyland? Coconut shrimp were good, perhaps a little overkooked. Spacious seating and reasonably comfortable booths. Reasonable prices. Maybe better for families with children than for foodies.
