    Despite having reservations and being well dressed for an occasion, the hostess tried to give us a crappy table in the middle of an aisle or behind the service desk. Said it was busy, but there were a number of empty tables that sat 4 persons and were available. Had to speak to the manager to get a better table when the place was not full is really not a good way to start a dining experience. As to the food, it was uninspired to say the least. Both appetizer and main course were over salted as well as unevenly salted. Vegetables were side dishes at extra cost. For a $30-$40 main course you could not add some vegetables? Dessert was ok. Overall-not worth the trouble or expense.

    My guest had special dietary needs that were met exceedingly well. She received everything she asked for and Bar Americain did not hesitate in the least with even the smallest request! And the filet mignon was cooked to perfection! I had the steamed lobster....OMG... What Bobby Flay can do to that is amazing! I am a fan of the Mesa Grill too, and they are both stellar restaurants. Can't wait to return for another fabulous meal.

    Loved the do it yourself shellfish entree. Lobster/oyster shooters were wonderful as were the oysters, clams on half shell. The chilled half lobster was great!. The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail was disappointing - I get better at my local market and was no way near the caliber of the rest of the seafood. Highly recommend the asparagus green salad and of course the fire. My husband's steak was perfection; my lamb loin with quinoa was excellent. Our waiter Jeff worked with me to modify a specialty drink to include some ginger. Attentive, but not overbearing service.

    The food was extremely poor. My friend came from Georgia and both if us ordered Shrimp and Grits dish. Both of us were unimpressed by the scant amount of food and over-seasoned shrimp dish. There were three small shrimp, two many bacon bits and the grits were terrible. I had ordered the mushrooms and onions as well and the dish was horrible. I won't recommend anyone go to this restaurant.

    My husband and I travelled to Mohegan Sun for a getaway for our tenth anniversary and a highlight was dining at Bar Americain! Romantic and beautiful atmosphere with stellar service. The food was everything we hoped it would be... Presented so perfectly and bursting with flavor! Every bit of each dish was scratch made and well thought out. The experience was well worth the price tag for sure!

    Had read reviews that food was salty. Thought the filet mignon was a good bet. The rub was way too salty and not flavorful. I cut off the edges of the steak but that was the only part of my steak that was medium rare(which I ordered). The middle of the steak was raw. The smashed potatoes also too salty and a portion too small for 2. The asparagus was undercooked- too crunchy. My friend's cherry pie dessert tasted old. She opted for vanilla frozen yogurt in lieu of the bourbon vanilla ice cream, it was freezer burned. Although I must say my chocolate pie dessert was excellent. We would have sent the food back but we had to get to a show. I am a really good cook and I know the difference between flavorful and salty. A total loss of $150

    So let me start out with the SERVICE was just AMAZING... The girl that we had just had no comparison to any other waitress that we have had. She was Smart - Attentive - Whitey - and just made you feel comfortable. Now the Food........ So I HAD to remove stars on this food because of plating and just overall appearance. To start I had the Cioppino, I do like flavor and I personally felt that the dish fell flat. The Lobster claw itself was cold to the touch and the over all dish lacked heat (temperature) but was still ok. The waitress said that the sauce had heat in it. It really left me wanting more. The wife had a steak, This plate was just ugly! ALL Black..... nothing else on the plate that wasn't black. The sides were OK.

    THE FIRST TIME WE ATE HERE WAS LAST SUMMER AND IT WAS WONDERFUL AND ONE OF THE REASONS WE CAME BACK. NOT EVER AGAIN. THE LOBSTER/AVOCADO APP WHICH I HAD LAST TIME WAS SO GOOD BUT NOT THIS TIME, TOO MUCH HERBS/ONION AND WERE WAS THE LOBSTER? MY HUSBANDS OYSTERS WERE VERY GOOD. THE MAHI MAHI WAS VERY RUBBERY AND A LOAD OF PEPPER. THE RIB EYE WAS TOUGH & GRIZZLY. SERVICE WAS WONDERFUL BUT STILL WAY OVER PRICED. I AM SORRY I HAD TO GIVE A POOR REVIEW BUT JUST HAD TO SHARE.

    We visited Bar Americain for my wife's birthday dinner. We decided on the fixed price menu and my wife chose the wine pairing. The 1st course, chopped Asparagus salad was excellent as was my wife's Manhattan chowder. The wine served with her chowder was very good and of reasonable quantity. Much changed with the 2nd course. My wife's salmon was a very good but without accompaniments . My fried chicken, which should be a signature of Bobby Flay's, was quite dry, both outside and inside. Not acceptable! The wine that came with my wife's 2nd course was miniscule, about half the volume of the first. When the server was question she babbled about it being in a bigger glass. Our desserts were very good. Tuscany is a better dining experience.

    Eating in casino's can and should be better. This dining experience was a shining example of that. I ordered the Shrimp & Grits. Too much bacon resulted in it being too salty and the size of the shrimp was a bit ridiculous. So small. Larger shrimp in this dish would have made it much more appealing. It was filling but it ended up an okay plate of food. Not a plate of food you should be served in a five star dining establishment.

    There was so much salt in my wife's meal she couldn't eat it. Mine was not as bad but it left a lingering taste in my mouth. It took much water and the rest of our evening for her to get the taste out of her mouth. Very disappointing especially as it was our wedding anniversary

    Loved Bar Amercain. The food was delicious. First time at this restaurant. Something for everyone. Need substations ? Not a problem. We began with a trio from the raw seafood bar. A shrimp, crab and lobster dish. All delicious but the sauce on the shrimp was amazing. Filet Mignon cooked to perfection and the steak sauce was very different and fabulous. My husband was a happy man. I had the muscles in a green chille broth. I didn't want frittes so they were happy to give me spinach as a side. They were terrific. Not noisy, quite nice decor and great wine list. Service was great but slightly slow. Otherwise 5 stars and we would return.

    I was very disappointed with my experience at Bar Americain at Mohegan. The service was great, but that was the only thing they did well. We ordered from their prix fix menu. We both ordered the asparagus chopped salads, and they were not good. It tasted like there were a dozen ingredients in the salad without any consideration of how the flavors mixed together. There was just too much happening in the salad. For the entree, I had the fried chicken, which was so salty that it masked any flavor of the chicken.Too bad because the chicken was moist and tender, but the salt was so overpowering. My wife had the ricotta crepes, and once again it was made with ingredients that just don't mix..inedible. The chocalate dessert was very umimpressive.

    The food was just horrible. Shrimp and grits was not made to order instead they tried to microwave it in a non-microwaveable dish and it was served ice cold. The cipolino was also not made to order. They took the shellfish that had been previously steamed and put a little warm broth on it serving it ice cold. You really do not have to be an iron chef to give this restaurant a terrible review. The staff needs customer service training as well. Save your money and avoid this place it really sucked.

    Two of us had the three course fixed price menu on a Thursday night. We have dined here several times previously. The first course of chopped asparagus salad was very basic and nothing special. The other first course of clam chowder was excellent. The salmon entree was over cooked and fair. The other entree of fried chicken was good to fair. As the waiter was serving the profiterole desert, she rushed it and it toppled over. She said "oops" and made no effort to serve it properly. The second desert of chocolate creme pie had a chocolate pudding on the bottom and a large cookie on top. The pudding was too thick and the cookie on top was too hard, so that eating was difficult. Our meals there in years past have been outstanding.

    I had the rib eye steak. I have eaten in Bobby's restaurants in the Bahamas as well as NYC and this was the best steak I have ever had. The fries and salad were also excellent. However, the service was slow. We were going to a concert after the meal which started at 7:30 and did not finish dinner until 7:55. Also, I ordered a cosmopolitan and it was not very good. I think they forgot to put the Grey Goose Vodka in the drink and it was way too sweet. Overall, the food was excellent but that is the only thing I would recommend.

    My wife and I ate here for Dinner the Monday following our Saturday wedding. We went to Mohegan for a mini moon and decided to have a romantic dinner. Once we were seated I was looking at the wine list when our server Jana stopped to the table and I asked her for her suggestion on a champagne - the restaurant comped us our first glass & she suggested a wonderful choice. The meal was a price fixe menu. We were stuffed and had to take our dessert to go (which also hit the spot). Great food, great service, great atmosphere!

    We were really looking forward to going to Bar Americain but we were very disappointed. We had steak tartar and the garlic toast it came with was burnt. The corn bread brought to the table was burnt. One of us has the cioppino and the snapper was not in it. While they did so the right thing and took it off the bill, it was quite a surprise to hear the kitchen didn't have any snapper and neglected to tell the wait staff. Prices as crazy. $25 for 2 pieces of just ok fried chicken. $9 for a very small order of fries. You get more fries for $3 at BBP they are much better fries. Won't be going back!

    Had Filet Mignon and it was cooked to perfection with an outstanding side sauce. In fact bought a bottle of the sauce. A little spicy but added a lot to the meat which filet mignon on average can sometimes be tasteless. The sauce along with the rub made it delicious. Desert not great - not a real german chocolate cake. The service is excellent.
