Very disappointed with this restaurant. We were in from out of town it seemed to be very unorganized, a lot of dirty tables and people not sure what was going on. We arrived early for reservations and 20 minutes after 9 we still weren't seated we decided so leave. 10 people were Stanley in the doorway.

I would recommend this place for the beef burgers and beer selection, but the veggie burgers and turkey burgers only get 1 star.

The Street Corn was very good. However, both our "pink" burgers were way over cooked - that just can't happen when paying $14 for a hamburger. I'm not trying to be extra sore on the topic, but I've never had an overcooked pink burger at Red Robin - which I consider a "cheap chain". I expect much more from Americano!

Food was well good, but selection was a little limited, unless you like burgers. My guest had the veggie burger and said it was good. It was my second visit there and both visits were above average. If you are on a tight time schedule they seemed happy to accommodate.

I went here with one of my daughters on Sunday for a quick bite before seeing a broadway show. It was a casual, enjoyable atmosphere with really great burgers. I also had a side salad that was fairly plain and large. And my daughter added the french fries (the rosemary ones) which were super tasty! The service was quick and they changed the tv so I could catch the last few minutes of my college basketball game so I'd say they had a fairly attentive sait staff. I'd like to go back to try out some of their beer selection and I think having the mini shuffleboard type game is a nice touch! Would be a fun place for an evening out with friends and it wouldn't break the bank.

We tried this restaurant as something different from our regular spots before a show. The food was average. Even though the restaurant was not the least crowded, we had waits in between our appetizer and our entrees, and then again for our check.

Honestly. A 14.00 burger should have a beef patty that is seasoned first, then layered with other flavors. Beer cheese had an overwhelming taste of flour. 8.00 fake cheese flour. High five.
Between the two burgers, the bacon was the only standout. Two strips of bacon.
The onion rings were huge. And the batter was not cooked through.
To boot, our bill was 48.00. For what.... I’ve made worst mistakes for less money, so I walk to live another day.

Americano
Responded on February 21, 2019

Mike, I am so sorry to hear about your poor experience at Americano. It is protocol that our cooks always season both sides of our patties, so I am not sure what happened here. As for the beer cheese, we do make it in house. I am assuming that whoever prepped the beer cheese that day did not blend it as thoroughly as they should have, which will be corrected. Please feel free to email me at zak@americanoburgerbar so that we can provide you with the 5 star experience you deserve! Thank you

The sandwiches/burgers were way too salty for our taste. One of my friends had to send hers back. I don't know if it was the sauce/spread or the patty itself, but it felt like we consumed a day's worth of sodium in one meal. However, the service was excellent and very helpful.

Didn’t have a large appetite for a burger, but my son liked the Mexican burger a lot. My creamy potato soup was subtly delicious with a hint of truffle oil, and the Greek salad was a good size, just the right amount of dressing (not oily).
They don’t have a large number of tables, but are only a few blocks from the Aronoff so it’s convenient & tasty before a show.

We took my mom here for dinner as we love their other restaurants in town. Every single burger was messed up... wrong toppings, overdone, soggy. While our server was amazing, she even admitted the cooking staff wasn’t the best.
