The Americana in Des Moines is a restaurant and lounge that serves cocktails, pasta, salads and sandwiches with a cabaret vibe. Guests can also stop in for the bombshell brunch, which offers 30 different items, a grilled cheese station and a potato bar. Don't forget to add the bottomless mimosa and bloody Mary bar to complete the brunch experience.
The Americana menu includes share plates with lamb skewers, Asian lettuce wraps, truffle fries, American nachos and much more. Enjoy entrées that include grilled sirloin, the loaded rib eye and the Boursin NY strip, all made from pure Omaha Black Angus beef. Make sure to check out the Americana signature dishes like the lamb chops and bacon wrapped meatloaf for even more options.
Our service at American was amazing. My mom and I were celebrating our birthdays and the little birthday cakes were so adorable and delicious! The brunch selection was great - this time they had chicken tenders, which were AMAZING, especially with that spicy BBQ sauce that went with them. I hope they have the tenders every time! The cheesy potatoes were also a hit at my table, and the biscuits and gravy are always a must get. Bacon could have been crispier.
Everything else was really good, I would say that the dessert, chocolate something was awesome. The service was as good as fine dining.
Excellent dinner and service as always! We enjoy it each and every visit!
Everything was great :) wide variety of brunch food !! My only con is that it could have been a little hotter. But will definitely be back:)
this is only my 2nd time at Americana, i would love to eat there more often but money is tight. my boyfriend and i ate there on valentine's for dinner, we also ate at Americana last year as well for Valentine's day, this is a new tradition of ours :)
food was amazing!! best steak ever!! and Americana isnt even a steak house, no fat on my steak what so ever, the moscow mules are awesome, over all a great place to go on a date or to take the family
Lovely place, highly recommend it for a couple outing or with a group of friends. The Turtle Smore dessert is amazing
Very nice setting for our romantic Valentine dinner. Our food was outstanding, like always at Americana!
Food was very slow at coming to the table. That is all I have to say. But I will keep typing to make a 50 word review which in itself is quite annoying.
Booked our reservations online, very simple. Got there went upstairs into the more romantic of the seating area for dinner & the service was great. Not to mention the food too!
I always enjoy the food and service and atmosphere at Americana. I hate sitting in the table/booth seats. Always seem like you're dining with others and hard to talk with the person you came with. Makes what should be a great dinner less than stellar.
My first visit was okay... just okay. My sage pork on Saturday evening was possibly the best pork dish I have ever had. Perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked with thoughtful, delicious sides. The service, as with my previous visit, was exceptional. Only one negative remark is that by the time we left (7:00), it was so noisy, it was difficult to carry on a conversation.
We had a great night out that started at Americana. The food was great and the service was outstanding. I would recommend it for anyone in Des Moines.
We were searching for a place to eat a brunch on Saturday and we stumbled upon this place. Upon entering you thought it would be a pretty good restaurant. We were seated instantly because of our reservations made online...very cool! The waiter took us on a tour, another very cool! Then set us free to explore the buffet. The food looked great, so we loaded up. There were plenty of options. I tried some biscuits and sausage g gravy, looked delish, not so much. I visited the grilled cheese station. It wasn't anything special, the guy going the grilled cheese wasn't very friendly. Overall food was mediocre at best, it would be fun to go back without kids and eat off the menu and of course have some drinks!
We don't usually spend that much money on dining. For this budget, I wasn't impressed. Food was fine, but not great. Sides were pre-determined with the meat. It was really noisy. Our table was right up against the railing on one side, and the waitress station on the other side. Not exactly the romantic evening out that I had hoped for.
Although noisy, food is great and they accommodate theatre crowd by getting you through dinner in time. Tapa selections terrific (try the Brussels sprouts or grilled artichokes) and fab Mac & cheese, brunch is also outstanding! Staff is accommodating and friendly. Definitely a place to go!
