Diner Reviews
  • "Had a nice time enjoying the view at La Piscine on the roof and then dinner in The Americano. Food and drinks we very nice and we enjoyed the service and atmosphere."

  • "I cannot understand why such an upscale restaurant would have only one unisex toilet to serve both the restaurant and the hotel lobby. This definitely detracted from an otherwise pleasant albeit expensive lunch experience with an old friend."

  • "We went for the first time with a deal from Gilt but we would come here anytime for drinks or a meal. The service and food for just what we needed fir a relaxing weekend celebration... Great relaxed vibe with a diverse downtown crowd."

  • "My boyfriend and I were celebrating and found a great Travelzoo deal. It was an amazing deal because the food was absolutely delicious. Cocktails are great (and dangerous because they are so yummy). Service was beautiful. Thanks for such a great night!"

  • "Enjoyed drinks at the rooftop bar. Balmy summer evening, view west somewhat restricted but nice view east, Empire State glowing. Downstairs, food was fair-to-middling. My companion had a raw tuna salad appetizer, which was quite good, the best plate of the evening, in fact, including what I ordered, which was lobster salad--lobster over quinoa--which was mediocre. The lobster pieces were tasty but the texture of the quinoa provided an unpleasant combination. I had the halibut, which was bland. Had to repeatedly ask for lemon (for the lobster salad as well) and salt (not provided on the table). The bread was fine. Overall, seems to be a deficiency in the use of spices and seasonings. My companion also had the kale salad, which was bland."

  • "The service was so extraordinarily bad that it ruined what otherwise would have been a good meal. Side dishes arrived AFTER main courses were finished. They were requested at least 4 times. Drink and food portions were unusually small. Prices were exceptionally high. "

  • "We dined here with a purchase from travelzoo. My expectations were not very high, but I was very surprised. The food was fantastic. We ate at Le BerNadine the day before and actually enjoyed the food at The Americano more. The staff was friendly and service was great. Will definitely return without a coupon. "

  • "we stood around for 15 mins looking for someone to seat us. the servers didn't know how to seat us so we sat ourselves and ordered a delicious brunch. the eggs benedict is yummy!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We had high hopes for this place as the weather was beautiful and we were sittig outside. But the service was so slow and disorganized, and the food was so mediocre, that we were really disappointed. It's fine if you're staying at the hotel but I wouldn't eat there otherwise. "

  • "Had delicious Chilean sea bass, which is hard to find in restaurants these days. The place is very minimal and tastefully decorated. Service is not wonderful, but the atmosphere is. And so is the location right by the high line. The place is perfect for wearing that little black dress, which is what a lot of the young women were wearing. Shared a delicious apple tarte tatin for dessert. Dinner and drinks can be on the expensive side, with a nice selection of interesting cocktails at $15 per drink.(the usual for NY) The mango tequila combination with a peppery rim was really good, the sparkling wine concoction "ze bubbly" was not. Great place overall. "

  • "One of our party was attending a conference at the Javits center nearby. The staff very kindly accommodated our party, starting with 2 of us for lunch at 1pm, with a third joining us an hour later. We really appreciated their efforts and patience, as we were there for two hours. The cocktails were fantastic and so was the chilled pea soup! Delicious bread was served warm and although there were a few hiccups in the food service, overall it was a great experience."

  • "Food and drinks were great. That said it was a 3 hour dinner event. Very slow kitchen."

  • "Five gals plus one 1 1/2 yr old baby came for brunch and it was delightful. We came mainly to see Grupo Irek, the Cuban salsa band, and though it was not really a dance scene like we were hoping, it was elegant, bright, somehow quiet but you could still hear the music perfectly, and overall a great experience. The staff was so friendly and super nice to the baby. I will definitely be coming again for brunch."

  • "This a great classy and elegant restaurant, quiet great food and good service. "

  • "We enjoyed our meal here. We had a Gilt City voucher and what we saved compared to what we got out of the deal, was well worth it! I would certainly go back! Fresh, quality food and fun flavors and choices. It was a wonderful night!"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "The food was absolutely unbelievable. Very interesting mix of Latin French food, we loved every dish. The service was not the best, not sure if this is just my experience or standard to the restaurant."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "We had reservation for 3. After seating I mentioned that we had Travelzoo voucher and the disposition of the server changed she brought a different menu which was not disclosed in the Travelzoo voucher. We waited a long time for the apps and the food and we had to ask for utensils. She didn't appear as attentive. The bill was still $115 minus the $70 travelzoo coupon. I didn't realize the deal offered drinks at the rooftop Artico. We received the drinks at dinner, but it would have been nice to go to the rooftop. This is a place people stop for dinner and then go to their next spot. Small portions to be $30 a plate. If it wasn't for Travelzoo I probably would not have gone, I don't think the restaurant would mind that."

  • "Having bought an offer here to enjoy rooftop drinks we were disappointed to find the terrace was closed. A bad case of false advertising. Starter was much too salty but otherwise food and service were good. "
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "Usually the food and service are good. Not this night."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "They have a small patio and great brunch menu that can satisfy everyone - eggs, amazing acai bowl and smoothies. Both, eggs and bacon and healthy eaters will be happy with the menu. Everything was fresh and tasty."

  • "Would go back there in a heart beat. Food is great!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Four of us dined on a Saturday night with each ordering a different entree. All were excellent. Great food was matched by fine service."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "This place in the middle of the Chelsea art scene is a convivial place to recharge after scouring the galleries. The chicken dish I had was delicious--unusual and perfectly prepared. Attentive and friendly staff and a nice ambience make this a go-to place in the neighborhood."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Both brunch and dinner are really good at the Americano. The service is always off though. Either too slow or too keen, bringing the wrong drinks or clearing your plates whie you're still eating..."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Any restaurant that takes you soiled fork and knife off your appetizer plate and places them down to be used for your entree is not worthy any star."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "We found this restaurant by accident while looking on line for someplace close to Madison Square Garden during restaurant week. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The ambiance was nice and the food was very good. We had a very attentive waiter. Would definitely recommend"
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "Great Jazz music, choppy service. The waiters don't seem to know when thing arrive and when they do. Missing items have to be pointed out. Food was okay- nothing memorable. Ambiance was stellar."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Service was excellent and friendly. All five of us agreed that the kale avocado salad was superb. The risotto with seafood was also one we would have again. The chocolate mousse dessert , while eaten, was just ok, the chocolate itself could have been better quality. Worth returning to this restaurant , and we liked the proximity to the Chelsea galleries."

  • "not to be missed. in a city with a million places, this one is up there on the list!"
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Went here for Restaurant Week dinner. I had the kale salad (excellent), hanger steak (excellent) and the churros (very good). I also got to try the crudo appetizer (excellent) and the salted caramel bombe (excellent). Service was attentive and the place was very modern. I would definitely go back."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Great dinner at the Americano last week for an old friend's birthday during restaurant week! She was so impressed and loved it! The seafood risotto was excellent, as was the tuna tartare appetizer and chocolate mousse dessert and Da Bubbles drink. I often find the noise level uncomfortably loud in many restaurants. We were lucky that it wasn't at it's peak when we were there. I know that restaurants think that the clientele like loud places...makes it seem like a hot spot? But, I like to be able to talk to my dinner companion, so I don't go back to very loud places."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "A great experience altogether. Service is a delight and the place is a lot of fun. You chat with your neighbors, chat with everyone. Lots of different places to have a drink throughout the hotel. The rooftop area, the lounge, the restaurant and the space below. Great vibe and absolutely fantastic service. Great treat. The risotto / paella was wonderful. As always."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Service was a disaster. Cup after cup was delivered to table dirty, one cup had another diner's tea in it. Chaos dominated the room of one of my favorite lunch places. It will be a while before I return."

  • "Nice quiet spot during the week to have breakfast with a friend. Terrific service. Huevos Rancheros was delicious. And loved the green smoothie."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "The food is really good and so are the smoothies. Portions are pretty small though. Not great value for money."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "Friend of ours recommended their Sunday brunch. The menu is very minimal, food was quite tasteless, everybody on our table of 8 was disappointed. Service was incredibly slow and clumsy, we heard glass scattering on the floor at least 5 times during our 3 hrs brunch. Portions are very small and "of course" quite expensive. One of our desserts was forgotten but still appeared on the bill (quickly removed tough) Live jazz and mimosas were good though."

  • "We had a party of 7 for brunch, and I was able to get a reservation pretty easily. The space is excellent, the food, drinks and service were great, and we were not rushed even though we were there for a couple of hours. Will definitely go back."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "This place is very nice, good food, & ambience. My only negative comment we went for brunch and they didn't have 2 of the entrees I wanted. I thought that was odd because it's not an extensive menu. Disappointing."
