Brasserie Americana Restaurant, Bar and Lounge Ratings and Reviews
Shocking experience. No signs to show where restaurant is located. The windowless bleak room did not have a sign that it was a restaurant. The only person in there was talking (unclear whether on phone or to someone I was unable to see). After 8 minutes of her talking without acknowleding us, she sat us and disappeared. 10 mins later-- no menu, no water, no server. We were the only people there and they were unable to serve us. I half expected the doors to close and someone to come out of kitchen with an axe. We didn't wait any further-- we left! We gave it one star just so we could write this review bc there is no way not to give them no stars! Close the restaurant and instal rest rooms-- better use of space!
It was a Mother's Day Brunch. Disappointed in the fact that food ran out and was not replaced. We were at the 2:30 sitting. By 3p to 315p you could not get some of the choices. bins were empty or near empty. Patrons arriving after us never even had the opportunity of choices, bins were empty. left was pizza and pasta by 3:20p no plates. No waiter to ask. We had to take plates, which were small from the dessert area. Another patron went to the kitchen to find a waiter to get plates.
In addition; never sit anyone next to the kitchen. we were placed right at the kitchen door. when it opened, we could see in. Not very appetizing or lending to the ambiance.
Nice place, food that I did have was good, however; the potential could be better if the focus was placed on the customer. A waiter should be stationed at the buffet area to make sure food does not run out and that plates are always available. the customer should not have to look for a waiter to provide this.
I was disappointing! we went for Mothers day. service was very slow when it came to clearing the dirty dishes off our table. I had to constantly get up and remove my family's plates from our table to make room for dessert, I placed them near the"rolling bar"I was hoping to avoid clearing off dishes (since it was mothers day and my day "OFF". when we arrived the entire kids buffet section was EMPTY>> NOT ONE FRY NOT ONE SLICE OF PIZZA NOT ANY CHICKEN FINGERS> no one there to man AnYTHING, I had to track someone down replenishing a few tray and told them my kids want to eat and these have been empty for a while. (He spoke NO ENGLISH) so the communication was also an issue. The vibration from the train was almost nauseating. I asked what some of the dessert cups were again "No English" so we had to "guess" I was NOT impressed with any of the food or the"Watered down bloody marys) We could NOT wait to get the check and LEAVE!!!!! an hr later we were all starving since no one enjoyed anything. I feel this was a complete waste of $$ . I just felt bad for my kids and my husband trying to impress me . we will NEVER be returning. poor food, poor service.. not worth it.
We went back for our second Valentines Day Dinner. Service was warm, friendly and pkeasurably attentive.
During the week, they gave specials which include all you can drink wine, coffee etc. I heard everything my date was saying. Food was very good. Valet parking or easy street parking.
The food was very tasty and the service was very attentive. The skirt steak was so tender and they have great olive bread and herb butter. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I will be returning again. The only thing that I would say needs improvement is how cold they keep the dining room I was absolutely freezing.
Awful food, literally. This was unfortunately our choice for a Friday night date. We should have known to left when we were one of only 3 tables seated at the restaurant on a Friday night. I would not recommend this restaurant at all, no ambiance, no fun, no excitement.
This restaurant is located within a private hotel in the rather high end town of Great Neck Long Island. The prices are high end (2 covers about $130) but in line with expectations in that area. My wife made reservations for my Birthday. As it turned out we had the entire restaurant to ourselves right around 6PM on a Friday evening. What we did not know is that the hotel had booked some type of reunion party in the lobby and bar of the hotel. The noise from this event drifted into the restaurant making more loud than we might have liked. The service was pretty good though we were the only people in the actual restaurant. The food was well executed right down to the freshly baked rolls and compound butter that were served. The steak that I had was prepared properly per my order and the sides did not disappoint though they were rather ordinary. My wife had Chicken Milanese which was flavorful and well prepared. The desserts were nicely presented (Crepes and Belgian Waffles) but not worth the $10 price tag per item. All things considered this was a reasonable but not extraordinary meal.
We were looking for a restaurant at the very last minute and found this on Open Table. We were very happy to find this very close, good atmosphere, very good menu and no wait! I had a hard time deciding on an entrée and when three of us ordered the same thing but there were only two left, they gave us our bottle of wine free, for the inconvenience! if I were in that area again I would definitely revisit it
2nd time here. Small menu, everything classically prepared. I was surprised it was empty, but it is in a hotel so its probably predicated on the number of rooms booked as well. The restaurant beautiful and very formal like. They have a bar in the lobby which I was also surprised was empty, but again, probably has to do with the neighborhood not patronizing the local hotel eateries.
Prices were very good for what you get and the location, being inside a hotel would make it great for date if one choses to make it a romantic evening with your new lady (or gentleman). My son and wife played a little chess right after dinner on the lobby (there is a chess set up) and the Valet parking is a big plus. I really enjoyed the filet mignon with the peppercorn sauce on the side and the Bourguignon & Bread and the Chicken Cordon Bleu were very nice as well.
Will definitely return - If anyone wants a quiet dinner or lunch in a beautiful eatery, this is highly recommended.
We have gone t0 this restaurant many times and loved the special price fixed dinners with wine. The value was great. Although they do not have it anymore, (it is still listed on the menu on the computer) they were gracious and gave us each a glass of wine. I am not sure that we will be going back as much. I do hope that they will bring it back. I also hope that they will take t off the computer as it is not truthful.
We have dined at this restaurant many times and each time has been wonderful. This time they were doing repairs on the main dining room so it was not as quiet or intimate as in the past. The food was great and our friends loved it. We will definitely go back when they have finished renovations.
We found this restaurant thru OpenTable and we are glad we did!
The restaurant was quiet and the service was excellent!
The chicken cordon bleu was delicious and had the perfect amount of cheese.
We loved the creme brulee for dessert! It was the best!
The chef even came out to see if we were happy with our meals!
We will definitely go back!
Impressed.... Seriously impressed. From the moment we were greeted at the entrance I knew (really, i did) that this place was going to be a winner.
We were escorted to our table by an gentle with a warm smiles and a wonderful "good evening." I was surprised though that there was only one other family there. Later Mo explained to me that this restaurant (located inside a hotel) was primarily a weekday place and the evening only starts at the bar before and after the parties at the hotel. None the less...lets get down to the food and beverages.
We did the price fixe dinner that included four courses AND wine & Coffee.
After Gloria came over and explained the price fixe option we immediately dove in and ordered There is a corresponding picture to each item i mention here. I am going to make this simple:
- Shrimp Cocktail - Three large shrimp well cooked as to texture and 'snap' with a good amount of tasty cocktail sauce
- Ahi Tuna Taco - Two large tortilla chips (providing a good crunch to sit underneath the perfectly seared tuna, and avocado
- Onion soup - very fast (without a lot of beef broth taste). Lots of well cooked onions and some seriously good cheese on top of a very crunchy that point.
- boeuf Bourguignon - This was a delightful twist on the classic french recipe... The pieces of meet were more bit sized and I did not get a over abundance of wine in the cause, BUT... This was delicious. It was served with a scoop of a creamy mashed-potatoes on top which was perfect. Both my wife and I finished the plate and both felt that we ate something really good.
It was nice that since it's a four course meal they don't give you an excessive amount of food. Each portion was perfect and totally satisfying
Dessert - Crapes with Ice Cream - This was the perfect way to end this meal... Soft crepes with a rich chocolate ice-cream.
I stopped by this restaurant which is located inside of a hotel for lunch. The restaurant decorum was a bit dated, however there were many food choices and the service was very good. The noise was moderate because of the relatively small dining space, but was comfortable.
My wife and I have now been here several times since my last review and it remains a mystery why more folks don't take advantage of this Great Neck secret spot. And a few weeks ago we were part of a 12- person group here and everyone complimented the food.
Try the fish tacos, the chicken cordon bleu, or, when it's the soup of the day, the 16 Bean Soup. And the burger and shoestring fries remain a delicious bargain.
Because it's almost never crowded it's the perfect place to bring a date or to have a business meal.
This is a hotel restaurant. We were the only people there at lunchtime, although a single person came in later. It seemed strange to be in this large restaurant alone. It was perfect for us, though, because we had some serious, heavy things to talk about. We were there for about 3 hours.
The food was fine. We had a chicken sandwich and a burger. Excellent lunch choice if you want to talk for a long time.
We found ourselves at Brasserie Americana in Great Neck for a variety of reasons, most of them geographic. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food--a rare pleasure for a hotel dining room. A good range of American and Italian specialties, with dietary requirements and exceptions cheerfully accommodated.
My wife and I have eaten here three times over the last several months. Each time we've been more than pleased with everything. It's almost always quiet; perhaps that's because people might think it's "hotel food". Whatever the reason, that makes it a great place for a romantic dinner.
And somewhat surprisingly for such an elegant room, I think it has the best burger and fries on Long Island! I'm something of a french fry snob, and in my opinion these thin, fresh-cut fries are outstanding.
The food was great! Very busy on valentines day so I'm not upset the service was slower than I'm used to. The waitors were very nice and busting their butts so I say good job because its not their fault they were understaffed you are only human. The 2 stars taken away were a direct message to the owners of the business to wake up and hire more staff for an anticipated busy night. Overall we were very satisfied.
