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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
