    We’ve been to Americanos several times. This has been our first less 5 stars visit. Not sure if it was because they were busy and/or understaffed. Potatoes came out cold and the filet was not their best. However, we will still head back. We love the owner and location. We’ll chalk it up to an off night.

    First time at Americano and we had a great meal! I had the marinated steak and brussel sprouts- delicious! The other 2 in my party had the sirloin and the loaded baked potato and really enjoyed it. We had the chocolate cake and key lime pie for dessert, very good. The service was excellent as well. We will definitely be back!

    Highly recommend Americano, Thursday is the night to go if you want outstanding prime rib. You do need reservation. The owner and chef really go out of his way to make you feel welcome and provide an outstanding meal. Our server she really knows her stuff and went to get lengths to ensure we had a great edxperience.

    NO ambiance; WAY too noisy. I'd say the noise level was "LOUD" rather than "Energetic" as on previous page. Our "sirloins" (both ordered 8-oz sirloin) didn't look anything alike! Mine was approximately 2-1/2" thick and looked more like a filet mignon. Husband's was only approximately 1/2" thick, had "grill marks" on it and looked more like what we'd expected. I did NOT like all the spices (mostly pepper) on the surface. We were puzzled by the "grill marks" b/c we didn't know that they actually grilled the steaks. Salad was very good, as was baked potato. NOT for "special" occasions, as far as we're concerned.

    We had a wonderful dining experience. We both ordered filet mignon with salad and baked potato. The steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare with a nice sear on the outside. We also ordered the Brussels sprouts as an appetizer and they were fabulous! We brought our own bottle of wine (they don’t sell wine) and they just charged a corkage fee. We were too full to order dessert, but they looked good. The hostess, Martha, and our server, Brianna, were super friendly, personable and efficient. Overall we had an extremely nice evening. We will definitely be going back.

    We went for the Thursday night prime rib special and it wasn’t lacking anything. We had a 6:30 reservation as were seated promptly. We brought our own wine and they also opened promptly. The meat was med/rare and delicious. The serving was quite large as well. The mashed potatoes were very good as well. It was a great experience and we will be back!

    This was 1st visit to Americano's We had seen that Thursday was Prime Rib Night. So we drove up to see how it was. Glad we made the Reservation and for an Early Time. There was a line before they opened. It is small, nicely decorated and are eager to serve you. The Prime Rib Dinner did not disappoint. It is served w/Garlic Mashed Potatoes. It was very good, nicely seasoned, tender, juicy. Everyone around us enjoyed it also. Alot of people seemed to be regulars which is great. We can't wait to visit again. *The is an Upcharge when you use a Credit Card(just a heads up)
