    Our 2nd time at Americano. We started with a couple cocktails followed by raw oysters and Caesar salad - delicious! My wife loved the pasta Bolognese. My rib eye steak was ok. It took them 3 times to cook/serve it medium rare but finally got it right and it was really good. They comped the wine so that was appreciated. We also had a side dish of polenta with mushrooms that was exceptional.

    Another enjoyable dining experience at Americano. Really like the subdued classy decor. Seated immediately in a cozy booth with a nice view of the dining room. Informed our server that we had a hard stop for a post-dinner concert, and he kept us on track without any sense of feeling rushed. The bar did not have our favorite gin, but suggested a satisfactory substitute. Delicious wines by the glass - chardonnay and pinot noir. Great entree -- short rib ravioli - one of our favorites. Nice surroundings, attentive service, and wonderful cuisine. A great evening at Americano. We will return soon.

    Sadly, last night, the meal was WAY off. Scallops were the best. NY strip, mushrooms, and carrots were all cold on hot plates. Caviar fries were straight COLD. Crudo was warm on a hot plate. Martinis were only average - no icy tops, and blue cheese olives were way over stuff, making for an unreasonable amount of floating cheese in a cocktail. Lastly, we had a reservation for two and were put at a table among several large LOUD parties. We could not hear each other across the table from each other, and the waitstaff kept knocking our table each time they walked by. We were offered a free coffee at the end, which was a strange way to make up for such an unsatisfying trip to Americano.

    Food unfortunately at Scott Conant's restaurant is average at best. We've been to his Vegas restaurant and were not impressed. This place is worse. It's all a show with below average food. Over done duck breast and chewy lobster tail. Very limitedenu and you can't even cook that well!!

    This was our first time here. The bar staff were wonderful and very attentive. We had a refreshing Ceasar Salad to start. Then we had the Diver Scallops that ate like butter, Trenette All'Aragosta (lobster pasta), and the Salted Caramel dessert. Everything was cooked to perfection!! We will definitely be dining here again!!

    Awesome meal. This was our second time dining here, with guests. I had the veal chop both times, and it was awesome again. Excellent flavors and a very diverse menu, without being too much. Had a very nice Barbaresco bottle of wine that was reasonably priced for a restaurant of this calibre.

    We always love it here. The food is consistently delicious and the service is always great too. But last night, Grant, the sommelier, went above and beyond. He “talked shop” with my dad and spent time at our table making sure we loved every sip that we were drinking. Thank you so much.

    While this is a very nice and neat place, the service fell below what we expected. We made reservations for the Chef’s Valentine’s dinner at 8:00 pm, with the understanding our dinner wouldn’t last longer than two hours, as stipulated by the restaurant. We arrived at 8pm and didn’t receive dessert until around 11pm. So much for other plans! The cocktails were top notch! The dry-aged sirloin was good, not great. The short ribs were also good, but fatty. We enjoyed the salads and desserts.

    This was our third time at Americano. The atmosphere is fantastic, and the service is always excellent. The food is great, however this night we had a couple challenges. First, the focaccia used to be a soft, pull apart loaf for the table (it's $15); it has now changed to just 4 pieces. Unfortunately ours were stale :(. Our server (who was awesome) handled it well though, no issue. Next we ordered wine, and sadly this is the second time in a row that the wine we ordered was not available. Bummer. The Somm was great, suggested something similar and we enjoyed it very much. Ordering entrees, we got the 'black truffle' upsell - which we love truffles, so that was good news. However when the food arrived, no truffles. I asked, and the poor guy said "the kitchen can't find them". This was just odd. Again, the server was apologetic and we laughed about someone stealing them, but disappointing. This is a great restaurant, the steaks and pasta are always good. We'll keep coming back.

    Extremely disappointed with the service and food quality. Waited 45 minutes to receive a cheese board, and ended up cancelling. By the time we received our meal, it was over 90 minutes. We were hoping for the best as it is a Scott Conant restaurant.

    Our dining experience here was fantastic, from the service to the ambiance to the food. I find that sometimes nice (read expensive) restaurants are overhyped but this met or exceeded all our expectations. My husband and I decided to celebrate Valentines a week early while we are in town for the Waste Management Open. We ordered the Cesar salad, wagyu bolognese, and the veal chop Parmesan. It was plenty of food and everything was cooked to perfection. We probably had a third of the veal chop leftover to bring home too. We will definitely come back.

    Can’t recommend Americano. There are so many other restaurants in the valley that are much more superior to this restaurant. The prices are extremely high for the quality of food. The wine prices are ridiculous. Service is ok, not great. We had a party of 6 and there were no rave reviews from anyone in our party. We all walked away totally unimpressed.

    Our server Gavin was fantastic! He was attentive, knowledgeable, and very personable. He made our dinner even more enjoyable with his recommendations as well. The food was stellar, the creamy polenta and wagyu beef cheek appetizers were amazing and a great way to start the evening off. The pasta and steak were cooked to perfection, horseradish crema for the steak was a great addition. We also thoroughly enjoyed the Caesar salad, it was cold, crisp and fresh! We were so happy to have a chance to try Chef Scott Conant’s restaurants during our trip to the WMPO this year. Thank you for providing us with a spectacular dining experience, we will be back next time we’re in town!

    Our umteenth time here Stephan our server was so delightful and fun very on top and knowledgeable on menu and wine. Food as always terrific. It was a first time trying the polenta and it was delicious the best I have had anywhere. The menu had been shortened and guessing due to upcoming events golf ect to make things more streamlined for the kitchen due to volume. But all in all still delicious. Will be back soon

    Visiting Scottsdale, AZ, and had to try Americano. So glad we did! From the minute we walked in, we felt welcomed. Services were attentive but not intrusive. The star of the evening was the delishish food! Steak cooked and seasoned to perfection, fresh pasta that was "chefs kiss" outstanding.
