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.

A nice surprise to find a reasonably priced high quality restaurant/bar in downtown. The burgers were excellent. The staff was extremely efficient and friendly. A really neat place.

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.

My family has dines at this restaurant twice now. Once with a party of five and then with a party of ten. Both times we received great service and good food. I would recommend this restaurant to friends and family with the note that it can be a little pricy, but worth it.

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.

Americano is a nice spot for lunch or a casual dinner. We had burgers, a shake and an American mule. Burgers and shake were OK, nothing too special. Sat outside and enjoyed the weather. Would probably stop back for a lunch or casual dinner.

Service, while friendly, was poor throughout the evening. Lag time between service of drinks at the table (one person was served and the other three were not), appetizer and dinner courses came out at the same time, waiter could not distinguish which burger was which, dessert that came with the meal was forgotten until we asked about it, no utensils until we asked about them, and then no water brought when requested. Could not recommend when there are so many burger places/bars opening up that have it together!

Nothing special, the burger wasn't seasoned so not much flavor. Certainly wasn't worth $12 or $13. I can get a better burger at home for cheaper. The fries were better but again, could have been more flavorful.

Slow to be seated, no host/hostess was at the front (which was really the middle of the restaurant). Service was slow. Fries would have been great if they were hot. Overall... not too impressed. Burger was good, albeit the bun, even though it was toasted, was cold.

I was very excited to bring my husband here and really thought he would enjoy it. The slow service though made it much less enjoyable. Since our food took so long to arrive (30 mins) we had to rush through eating it to make our performance. It was very disappointing.

The burgers were so-so. The fries were just ok; there were sprigs of rosemary on my plate, along with the French fries. But I tasted garlic at all. They were labeled rosemary/garlic fries!
For the cost, I would have to say...unimpressive.

Wasn’t sure where to eat before seeing a Reds game. The name caught my attention and the pictures of the food looked outstanding. So glad we stopped by to experience it. Couldn’t think of a complaint on the service. Have told many friends about the beer menu. Will be stopping by again in the future.

Went here for Mother’s Day. The food was incredible. I had the poutine and the Early Bird burger. Both were amazing!! It was the first time here for everyone in the party and we would all come back.

Service staff was super friendly and got us anything we needed.

The only downside was that it does get loud in there when the place is crowded, but that wouldn’t stop me from coming back.

Was very impressed with Americano. Our server was amazing. She provided great recommendations, was very timely and incredibly polite. The food was amazing. Tons of flavor and all delicious. The fresh cut french fries were great as well. If you are looking for great burgers or sandwiches and a beverage in Downtown Cincy, this should be your stop.

Stayed in downtown Cincinnati for the night and needed a casual place to eat. Americano was perfect. The burgers are gourmet and the beer options were plentiful and cold.

My high school kids were with us and had a ball with the shuffleboard table. If I’d let them, they may have shut the place down. Great place.

I made a "Priority Seating" reservation on Open Table for lunch for a group of six people. When we arrived at Americano, it was very busy - hence the "reservation" made. I understand how priority seating works, but the manager came out and said he absolutely could not accommodate us or acknowledge that we had used Open Table to request priority seating. He claimed he did not have our notification and it wasn't his fault. My group was quite disappointed but it was poorly handled.
