I always love the BLAT chicken sandwich but this time I was not happy. My fries were very soggy and the one slice of avocado was brown and the tomato was not fresh either.

I booked outdoor seating but when I spoke with the restaurant the day before, they said that all the outdoor seating was taken. So that was deceiving. Also, the service was slow. The server was a great guy and really sweet, but it took a while to order food for 2 people.

Otherwise, it has a great atmosphere and the food is on point!

Be sure to make reservation on the weekends. For large parties, 5 more more people are present when you check in. There is not any parking available. They do have valet $10 CASH ONLY. It’s not affiliated with the restaurant it’s for the residents and guess that live in the building. The staff is friendly but management is rude and dismissive. OVerall the food is good, shareable portion and great ambiance.

I’ve always really enjoyed my visits to AMSO in the past, which is why I was disappointed when I booked table for my friends and I to enjoy the AFC championship game and celebrate my birthday at the same time. I called to confirm the reservation in addition to booking through open table. I was promised to get a high top table inside big enough to fit my 14+. When we arrived, we found out they had already reserved that table to someone else. In their defense, they did scramble and tried to be as accommodating as possible to find us a table. We ended up with booths that fit 10 so it was a bit uncomfortable to say the least. Overall, I just wish they had better logistics. If they had reserved that table, a simple no to my reservation request would have sufficed and I could have looked for another location. I would recommend going here if you have a small party and don’t care where you stand or sit. If you prefer the guaranteed reservation you requested, maybe look somewhere else.

Could of been better, if the food wasn’t cold and if my husband didn’t have to wait 25 min for each beer he ordered. I like the vibe, has potential. They also gave us a table outside even though we requested one inside and made the reservation 4 days in advance!

We requested a private room but were not able to secure that, so instead management put us outside. This did the trick in terms of helping with the noise level, and the view was beautiful. The food was great, ambience enjoyable, but above all...our server was fabulous!

I would like to point out that the manager was AMAZING! He was so fabulous and made our dinning experience amazing. He was so fresh and full of energy. At first our group was a little upset because we lost our table due to us getting lost and being unable to find the area. But once we were there and got seated the staff and manager made the extra 30 minute wait worth it! Try the strawberry French toast and the breakfast pizza!

Food, service and ambiance are good. I didn't know that they had different kinds of seating outside and wish I was given an option ahead of time. Low seating is very nice but not good with short dresses or rompers so be mindful when making reservations. Nevertheless, would definitely go back and recommend.

Relaxed setting and great food with excellent service without a pricey tag next to the Miami River. If the outdoors with a DJ is not your thing, you can always retreat indoors and still enjoy a vibrant and colorful interior. It's one restaurants where you'll tell yourself, "I'm definitely coming back here when I'm in Miami again."

We were told our reserved table was only for 3 hours and we couldn’t change the one we got as the whole place was already booked. We only spend an hour and a half there and it was literally empty the whole time. Not satisfied as menu didn’t offer wide variety. We ordered crab cakes and it only came with 3 super small ones and nothing else. We needed to order more food to fill us up. We also ordered Paella for 2 and it was not even enough for one person and plate was filled mostly with mussels. It was our first and last visit to American Social!

My 4 other friends and I all wanted the Mahi Mahi and salmon and they were completely out of Mahi and only had 2 pieces of salmon left. So we completely changed our orders. Luckily they had enough shrimp and salmon left for what we wanted. Waitress was lovely and accommodating but exactly the best turn out especially for a birthday occasion. If you go for food, I recommend going earlier than 8. But atmosphere is fun and waterfront scenic view is beautiful. And drinks were great.

I went to happy hour with my daughter and a friend for my birthday on a Wednesday night. The happy hour prices for drinks was great. But, I did not find the menu very appealing so we ended up just snacking on truffle fries, Mac and cheese, and the goat cheese croquettes. It was good but I would have liked more choices for a good “meal”. The location and ambiance was very nice and we had a good time. The only negative is that my daughter called in advance to say it was my birthday so they brought out a slice of cake but they actually charged me for it in my bill. I thought that was a bit tacky.

The server was great with his suggestions from the menu and his fast and efficient service. The desert was delicious and a treat from Danielle. Thanks you all for make our night so beautiful.

The 2 of us hit up American Social this past weekend for an early dinner before heading to a concert at AA Arena. The restaurant is right on the Miami River which makes for nice outside dining. We had a couple of drinks and then split 3 different small plates of Black Truffle Garlic Fries, The Giant Meatball & Crab Cakes.
All 3 items were prepared nicely and they came out as they were ready, so we got the Crab first and then the Meatball about 4 minutes later and then maybe 5 minutes later we got the fries. Not a bad way to server things, it does ensure you get you food hot.
Service was really good, and the outdoor seating is very casual and comfortable (this time of year).
Great place to watch people and boats as they all returned from a day on the ocean/bay.
Plenty of TV's to watch your favorite game.
I was really worried about parking, but that became a non-issue, with Valet or on street parking.

Great service! I went to American Social for a Sunday Brunch to celebrate my birthday. They sat as down immediately after arriving even though our party had not arrived. Our server was Adriana she was amazing! They had a unlimited mimosas for $25 and a tasty menu we had the Maine lobster egg Benedict, oysters, wings, burger, chicken and waffles and everyone enjoyed their plate. All the food and drinks came out with very little wait time. Our party was also able to enjoy hookah they had available. We were told when we arrived we could only have the table for 2 hours since there was another party coming. We asked Adriana and the restaurant manager if we could get another table with no preference since we weren’t planning on leaving. They informed us they will be shifting other parties around so we wouldn’t have to move from our table. We ended up staying until 5pm. On top of being so accommodating, Adriana and the restaurant manager we’re constantly checking on our table. Highly recommend and will be most definitely be coming again!

Unfortunately, the service was terrible. The food came out way before the drinks. And this was on a Wednesday night with half of the outdoor tables empty. One of my friends ordered a martini and they were out of olives. I ordered a pumpkin beer and sent me an ipa

Overall servers and staff were not friendly seemed to all work against each other instead of helping one another. So many other great spots to choose from. I will not be returning.

Over priced food and drinks. Very poor service and it wasn’t packed. New manager had to help take care of our table and items came out super slow. Beer and food was overpriced. I spend $80 on beer, wings, and fries. Never again 😐
