    Everything was great and I will definitely go back. I gave service 3 stars only because after being seated and waiting 20 minutes I had to call someone over. By that time I already placed my order through the online services. Once I did that the food came quickly and wait staff was great. I was just the initial. Again overall food was great and loved the ambiance and music.

    First time to this establishment since it was more of a diner. This is now a more advanced dinning experience. The updated decor and layout is really nice. The food is good and prepared well. The menu could be a bit more balanced and have a few more mainstream shareables. The drinks were great, as well as the atmosphere and to me one very important thing… it was spotless and very clean. I’ll be back for sure.

    The only thing I did not care for - personal taste- was the airport-like ordering system. It annoys me in airports tops. I understand this is probably helpful in time when it is hard to hire staff, but I simply prefer server service. The staff that was present was very helpful and nice/

    We love the AKB. Everything is top shelf. The Sunday Brunch is a great value. It is a "Jazz Brunch" so there is music, and the noise level tends to be a little higher than at other times. Good music though!

    The menu was diverse and the plating was good, but the food was largely bland. The cauliflower was the best dish we had overall but only because of the dipping sauces. The parpadelle needed a lot more salt, and even adding what salt we could didn't do much. The paneer had no kick to it and the gravy was thin and flavorless.

    Was surprised to find out that there was no waitstaff. Food is ordered via your cell phone. Considering this, prices were high. That said, the food was very good, but not worth the $90+ for a lunch for three people who were not drinking any kind of alcohol. Although the food was great, we will not be back.

    Americana Kitchen and BarResponded on July 20, 2022Hi Kat, We apologize that you had a less than pleasant experience. Self-ordering is optional, but if a guest desires someone to place the order for them, one of our team members would certainly be happy to do so. However, we are glad you enjoyed the meal and thought the food was very good. We hope you will consider giving us another chance in the future.

    Need to change their menu once in a while. Why am I tipping when I do all the work except cooking it. I go with friends & put in my order & pay. Then my friends bill come & my bill is included in theirs. The people there say it goes by the table bill. Then someone has to come over & fix it🤪

    This spot is the exact half way point between my NYC friend and me (Philly). We enjoyed a late lunch outside. Oysters to start, I had the Hawaiian Poke Bowl and my friend had the Rigatoni Bolognese. The oysters were nice, fresh, briny and served with a mango mignonette sauce that was subtle and a nice change. The tuna in my Hawaiian Poke was good, but honestly not as good as I make at home. I may be finicky, but I felt it needed a bit more flavor. I asked for spicy mayo and siracha sauces and that made it come together. My friend said her pasta dish was delish. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the vibe of the restaurant. A warm and friendly greeter walked us to our table and assured us that if we had any trouble with the online QRC code ordering menu (this is the preferred ordering during the week and it makes sense for low staffing times), to just ask our server. We liked that we could put in all our own requests (no rice, soy allergy, etc.) right into the system. You cannot put in substitutions easily so that may require wait staff assistance. In the end, I had to put in a verification code that never hit my txt msgs, so our server happily put order in for us. The food arrived in a very timely manner. I would prefer apps first, then entree, but it was fine for me as I had a cold meal anyway. As we ate, our server checked in on us and after a bit let us know she had to leave. We offered to pay then and she assured us that they pull tips and we talked about how that may be the reason for the very chill atmosphere: everyone was helping everyone and everyone was really nice! We sat there for a few hours as it was not a busy time and we never felt rushed or even the slightest indication that we were overstaying. This reminded me of meals in Spain or Italy! As the happy hour/early dinner crowd came in, live music began and we made our exit to free up the table space. We loved the atmosphere inside & out: inside was like the shape of a NJ diner, but so MCM, cool, upscale.

    We had the pappardelle and mushrooms and the Hawaiian poke bowl. Both were delicious although next time, I would omit the fried onions. Service was impeccable as we tried to use the ordering system and the outdoor eating was a nice option.

    We had an great experience. We always do. It’s hard to compare Americana to anything- it’s warm, inviting, delicious, entertaining. Just don’t go on Sunday morning to Americana’s Jazz Brunch because it’s our favorite thing to do and now lines are forming out the door.
