Americano is designed to encourage a communal dining and imbibing experience. We suggest starting with a few bites for the table alongside some selections from our crafted cocktail menu or distinctive wine list. From there, our menu offers the opportunity to taste a bit of everything or enjoy a traditional full entree. Our question to you is, "How would you like to dine?"

Please note that a limited menu will be provided for parties of 12 or larger. To book a private space or to make a reservation for a large party, please email

Great ambiance, excellent service, delicious food!

Not happy with service charge of 20% being added to the bill for just a table of 2. Dirty glasses left on table. Wine pairings brought over to table late. Felt quite rushed. No I taste of marrow in the bone marrow mash. Not worth the money.

Wish there were more tables dedicated for dates besides the tall bar chairs with tiny tables.

I had a magical dinner here. It is a great place. Servers were friendly but not overly present. Food was good.

Food was cold and prime rib overdone. Disappointed.

Remains one of our favorites in SF. Probably the second or third time we've dined there and will keep going back!

I was very pleasantly surprised with the food here. Went here for lunch with coworkers. Had the Brussel/artichoke starter that was delish and good for sharing ! For entrée I had the sausage pizza. Middle was a bit floppy but the flavors were bright and distinctive. Others had grilled cheese and soup combo. The cauliflower soup was especially yummy. Also be sure to ask for bread when you sit down. It comes warm and perfectly crusty on outside and soft in middle, and served with olive oil and basalmic. Very reasonable prices too.

Fabulous food!
We had a fantastic dinner at Americano Restaurant. Every detail was meticulously handled. Loved the appetizer - a peppers and feta cheese spread on hot grilled bread. The branzino was delicious and beautiful. The "old-fashioned sundae" for dessert was anything but. Especially enjoyed the bitters toffee sauce. Wine list was spendy. The wine we ordered from Freemark Abbey was very enjoyable.

We had our Thanksgiving meal at Americano, and it was wonderful. The food was outstanding and the service was lovely.

I bring guests here frequently because it's easy to visit and the food is very reliable and delicious. Not what one sometimes expects from hotel dining, but this is a very nice exception. The bar can be crazy busy in warm weather and at Happy Hour. I've had the least positive experience then -- so many people and not enough staff. But for a meal, everything is exactly on the money. Grilled cheese and tomato soup on a rainy afternoon was my most recent delicious experience. Great salads and pizza. Good place to bring a client when you need to speak privately.

I love to have this place for business lunches. Drinks in the evening can be fun but the bar can fill up quickly. Staff is friendly and the menu is simple and reliable. They have a nice $20 express lunch. But the capstone is really the quiet atmosphere which allows easy conversion. Really nice for a business lunch.

Excellent service; despite limited menu, I always find something satisfying.

I was expecting something with better views. The salmon was undercooked and cold.

This is one of my go-to restaurants in downtown SF - lovely on a sunny day for lunch and great dinner spot for our book club. It is spacious, making it easier than in many restaurants to hold a conversation. Also the food is excellent and the staff is attentive.

This place always delivers for a casual businesss meal - easy to converse with guests. Service is well above average, dining room is very comfortable, food is consistent if not super exciting, great location near businesses.

The warm, seasoned olives are great as a first bite!

Americano deserves to be on the radar for good food, specifically at the restaurant. Even when the bar and patio are buzzing, the restaurant is almost always nearly empty or at most half full.

Great food and excellent service. Our server went above and beyond to ensure we were ordering what we really wanted.

Service was excellent. We have been to Americano before & found the food very good We we're very disappointed this time. Food not well thought out. Appearance & taste needed attention
