    We got the shrimp & grits, pork belly, pot roast, and mussels - all were fantastic. Cool atmosphere with live music. Good service. Would definitely return.

    Our server Enrique was awesome. He made food and drink suggestions that we tried and loved. Spicy Strawberry Rita, and Blackberry Old Fashioned as well as Lamb chops, grilled octopus, mussels and goat cheese croquets. We added cornbread, bacon wrapped dates and BBQ ribs for the final tapas. All were shared by three of us and there was no room for dessert. I highly recommend this spot.

    Last nite , we had a delightful time here. Gabriella, the bartender was very sweet. We got there a little before the end of happy hour. So we were able to order a couple of drinks and a few of the tapas. We ordered the artichoke spinach dip, chicken and waffles and the Pot roast with the Cristini bread. That was a $2.50 extra it’s not on the menu. But read a yelp review. to dunk in the nice thick gravy. The owner came over and introduced himself. Chatted w/us for a while very nice. For dessert we ordered the S’mores. What a treat

    Spent NYE here, everything this was good, service, food ( a must, bacon wrapped stuffed dates, out of this world). The goat cheese dish was great as well. Ambiance is great, my only issue, the music is so very loud it was just impossible to converse with people sitting across from you. Will be back though, the food is quite tasty!

    I understand the Tiramisu is new to your menu....do yourself a favor and get rid of it. AWFUL! This was not tiramisu and could have come out of a vending machine. If not for this food and overall rating would have been 5 Star. I will be back and will highly recommend you but will tell everyone not to touch the tiramisu with a 21 and 1/2' pole.

    Our family of 9 had our Christmas lunch Christmas Day last year and had a wonderful time so this year everyone wanted to go back. The food and service is always outstanding. We ate tapas and drank coffee martinis till our hearts and tummies were content.

    They had somebody playing music, and he had a stereo system behind him. We could not hear anything the waitress our friends. It was terribly terribly noisy. We asked them to tone it down and he did, and then we asked him to tone it down again and he did, and he went on break and still kept the music on in the background. The place is too small to have music and we happen to have a big party next to us that was noisy and they should be but all together it was an unpleasant experience for us. My friends enjoyed the food, but could not get over the music. Unfortunately, we will not be back.

    My husband and I went to the Ft. Lauderdale location for the first time. We enjoyed the tapas menu, tasted several dishes that were good. Our server was attentive and we enjoyed the atmosphere with live music, the singer had a pleasant voice and her volume was perfect for the space. I booked through Open Table and the confirmation highlighted that Thursday had a 50% off wine bottle under $100 promotion. What a bonus, I thought! I checked the restaurant's website and found the promotion along with others for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday as well as a daily happy hour. When we asked our waitress about the half price wine promotion, she told us it was not offered. We ordered a bottle of wine anyway, and enjoyed our evening. I contacted the restaurant through their website but did not get a reply, and as of writing this review, the promotion was still listed on their website. As much as we enjoyed our experience at the restaurant, the restaurant's miscomunications have left a bad taste in our mouth.

    Tapas, Tapas, Tapas...Found this hidden gem on open table @americantapasbar...best decision ever! We tried about 8 different tapas, wings, fried cauliflower, spinach artichoke dip, Lobster mac and cheese..I could go on. Everything was very good. I had tapas as my main meal and was very satisfied. Will definitely go back.

    Loved this place! The moderate volume note was due to live music! He was great. We sang along. We tried several small plates and they were all delicious. Shirley waited on us and she was delightful! After the bacon wrapped dates, burrata, shrimp cocktail, and lamb meatballs, all very good, my wife asked Shirley what we should not miss the next time we eat here. She immediately said the Shrimp and grits! She lit up when she talked about them! I couldn’t resist..I told her to bring me an order. Holy cow she was right..the best shrimp and grits I’ve ever had! This place is fabulous. We will make it a normal stop each time we are in town. By the way, my wife doesn’t eat lamb, she tried a small bite of the meatball after my drooling temped her…she ended up eating the whole thing! We love American Tapas! Thanks Shirley for making our first time a great time! I wish I took photo’s.

    We went on Thanksgiving so it was much quieter than I assume it normally was. Our server was wonderful and kind and gave us great service. She made a great key lime martini. And those half price bottles of wine, yes please!!

    Ambiance and service was great. They have a great menu. Most nights there is live music. It may have been an off night but the food (mussels and lamb meatballs) was incredibly salty. Grilled octopus was great though.

    We had the Lobster Mc&cheese (delicious, quite rich!) the pork belly (nice crunchy bits!) , the filet mignon slider (tasty but a bit dry) and the lamb meat balls (nothing exceptional , just good) and a bottle of nice Oberon to go with our tapas. Service was OK. We sat outside (even if right by parking lot, we preferred that to the music inside. We liked the place fine and may go back when we are again in the mood for tapas…

    We were charmed by the ambience and LIVE music as we entered American Tapas and greeted with smiles. The bar was well-equipped and several stools and TVs for your viewing pleasure. The FOOD was presented and tasted AMAZING...especially the Grilled Octopus Pork Ribs, and Cornbread Skillet plates... we were pleased with the wine and cocktail selections. This is our new GO-TO place! $$

    This was our first visit here. The food and the service was good. While we enjoyed the live entertainment it was too loud to have dinner conversation and we were not sitting directly in front of the entertainment. I would suggest they turn it down some for early dinner.
