Food is delicious - fresh ingredients and such good flavors! Fantastic drinks and just really good service - my favorite place in Oak Park!
The seating at our table was not very comfortable, but the food and service and overall ambiance was incredible. We will go again!
We went to Amerikas for our 14th Wedding Anniversary and our server made sure it was a memorable night. The food and the wine he recommended were delicious together.
Always a great experience with excellent food!
Excellent food and service!
I don't know where to begin so I guess the best place is the beginning. I had the limon margarita and it was the perfect blend. For the first plate we had the scallops and black rice and there are no words that I can use to describe the flavors you are in for with this dish. I just simply do not have the vocabulary to describe the celebration that will happen in your mouth. Then we had barbacoa, the lamb was so tender it will melt in your mouth. The white rice and salsa verde are the perfect combination. And the finale was the asada perfectly cooked and tender topped with fries. Don't take my word for it though and don't walk, RUN to try this place. Our server, Eric was nice and informative. He presented each dish and we felt terrible making a 10:30 reservation when they close at 11:00 so I asked for a cappuccino and dessert to go but he wouldn't have it so we stayed and at it here. Yes here I am writing this review while having dessert because I don't want to leave out a thing. Armando, the chef came out and spoke to us introducing himself asking how everything was. From the bar to the service to the kitchen our experience was amazing. There was nothing more they could have done to make our experience any better. We'll be back soon and often.
The food is full of flavor. They had fall vegetables based dishes that was delicious. Butter adds to the flavor. The fish, barramundi, was fresh with crisp skin. It was quiet if the music was turned down. Definitely worth a visit.
The food was unique and delicious! We enjoyed every bite. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We’ll definitely be back!
A little embarrassed it's taken us so long to check this restaurant out since it's about 5 blocks from my house. SO happy we did. Food was wonderful from the amuse bouche soup to the recommended chili rellenos and whole branzino. Our server, Erick, was personable, very knowledgeable about menu items and cocktails alike. He also directed me to a great glass of wine which I enjoyed with my branzino. In addition they treated us to a lovely dessert in honor of our anniversary. There have been several restaurants in this location over the years and the reason it took me awhile to try this one is I don't love the space. It's long and narrow making for a bit of a noisy setting. When we dined the noise level was energetic but not distracting. Not sure if perhaps this restaurant has done something the others did not to absorb sound. Cocktails were amazing and as mentioned all the food items were a hit with both my husband and myself. Would definitely recommend Amerikas and plan to return soon.
We had an incredible time at Amerikas. The food and flavor profiles were just fantastic. Our server was very helpful in helping us navigate the menu and putting together a fantastic meal and drink pairings. We will absolutely be going back again!!
we had the hummus, taquitos and chocolate bomb. all three were so delicious that we have ordered them the last four times that we have gone here, and go there specifically for these dishes. I can't wait to go back.
Loved the food and drinks!!!
The service was not that responsive - slow in fact.
Love this restaurant! Delicious, very fresh food and excellent service. The noise level cranked up quite a bit when a large party came in, but otherwise the dining experience was stellar! I would highly recommend this place.
Amerikas is best restaurant in town by a long shot. I’ve been here several times and the food is consistently excellent. And if you like mussels, you have to get the mussels: big and fleshy morsels piled high on a bed of tender, minutely chopped vegetables in a spicy coconut broth. It’s heaven in a bowl. I always think I’ll try something new but then I go and order it again. Luckily for me, it’s a mainstay on their menu.
We are still talking about the cauliflower dish. Seriously! The food is so good here, and the space is lovely.
I really enjoyed this place. Great staff and amazing food. I left feeling very exciting to return.
Best restaurant in Oak Park, with the quality you'd expect of many sought-after reservations in the city. Chef Armando strikes an amazing balance of spice without overwhelming the unique ingredients of his dishes. Don't miss the cauliflower with manchego and almonds or the scallops with yuzu butter sauce and forbidden rice (but have never had any dish I didn't like here, and have tried almost all of them!)
A unique and outstanding menu is just the start of what makes Amerikas great. From the friendly and helpful manner in which the servers interact with you, you can tell they are truly dedicated to the restaurant, and the atmosphere of the space is really pleasant.
Awesome food, attended our allergy inquiries, very good service, and the chef treated us with a special dessert for the special occasion
Delish food. Would recommend the cauliflower and the pollo.
Although the menu is limited, the selection is solid and the food is excellent. Great service and the sweet potato soup offered to us prior to our meal is excellent. Highly recommend.
I really have to say it was an altogether wonderful experience. My wife and I had the octopus and the Burundi and the cauliflower. All the dishes were wonderfully balanced with excellent flavor and great spice balance. Without being overly seasoned. We can't wait for our next visit and wish this establishment well. We are proud of their accomplishment given the current status of pine dining today.
Food was luke warm, beef was tough, service was slow and not attentive, price was too high (lunch/brunch entree at $19 a dish). Very disappointed!!
Excellent customer service. The food was beautifully presented and most importantly, was delicious and very flavorful. I will return.
Great dinner with the best octopus and mussel dishes I’ve ever had.
We sat at our table for 30 minutes, and no one from the staff ever approached to welcome us or take an order.
Amerikas is a wonderful restaurant. We liked the Nuevo Latino menu with several interesting dishes. Menu items are for sharing and my wife and I shared the Chile relleno, the barramundi, and the asada. All were delicious. Kosta, our waiter, was very attentive and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back.
Food was great, bold flavors but well balanced, ingredients are of high quality.
You should update the online menu. I checked it out before I came and it wasn’t available when I went to order.
Ahh! I have a new favorite! The food great, the drinks refreshingly great, and the service amazing! I highly recommend this place, if it's still on the menu the chuleta dinner is a must try.
Would love to eat here every day. Food is amazing, service is excellent. Cannot recommend more!
Amazing food served with pride.
This was truly a dining experience. Each did was unique and delightful. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff was excellent!
Enjoyed the “started” soup (amuse bouche)!!!!!
Service was very good. Decor is minimal and could use a refresh. Seating was a tad uncomfortable.
However, the food was amazing!!! My second visit and the food has definitely improved.
The food is fantastic as are the drinks and service. Everything is great and we will go back many times.
Have tried them before and experience was the same. Loved it! Not much variance in the menu, but the selections are broad enough for a variety of taste buds (including vegetarian), though not overwhelming. The ambiance can't be beat. Service is relaxed, but attentive. Favorites are the cauliflower small plate and scallops entree.
Loved it! Truly unique experience. Flavors a fusion and not distinctly Mexican
The staff & chef are all very attentive> The food is freshly prepared and unique blend of spices.
Great food. Great variety of choices on the menu.
