The American Hotel is one of the few historic hotels remaining in the United States. Here, visitors can come and visit and take a trip back in time to the mid-1920s when smoking rooms and jackets were commonplace among velvet furniture and strong whiskey served on the rocks. During the summertime.
Of course, The American Hotel is more than just a hotel, it houses an excellent restaurant as well. There are multiple dining areas depending on what kind of experience guests are looking for. The Main Dining Room is a lively and rambunctious room that holds about 80 people while the Drew Room is a quieter, more private area for those looking for an intimate evening. The food is quintessential American cuisine from across the United States.

    Our 1st dinner back at the AH. It was glad to see that things haven't changed. Still one of the BEST restaurants in New York. The quality of the service & hospitality was only topped by the well prepared meal that we ordered.

    Terrible greeting when we arrived for lunch yesterday! What can I do for you as we approached the desk the woman barked at us! After all our many years of dining with such pleasure what a big disappointment the dining experience was! Thankfully we had a lovely server. When you go to the American Hotel, You do expect manners. They just seem to not care so much. We left No thank you No good bye.

    Lovely spot in a beautiful town. The food was amazing and the service was incredible. The only suggestion is that we made a reset for brunch on Sunday at 10:30 but the restaurant opened at 11:30, the opening time should be changed in the app.

    Love the re-imagined menu (at least since we were last there.) Lots of choices, including lighter fare, which makes a lot of sense. Excellent service. Can't wait to go back. Wine list is world-renowned -even the simple house Chardonnay by the glass is wonderful. Bravo all around!

    we enjoyed another very nice lunch at AH, in the back courtyard, which is lovely! our waiter, vincenzo, was excellent - perfectly attentive, professional and very pleasant. my crab cake was flavorful, although i don't love the english muffin with it. jmo. hubby's cobb salad with shrimp and chicken was also very tasty. the heaters in the outdoor courtyard provided for a perfect temperature. we will return once again. thank you.

    Lamb chops where served with a small dollop of mashed potatoes and another of purée of beats. All three a mediocre stab at a classic. Not what I remember from past experience.

    Celebrated our anniversary last night. We got engaged in front of the hotel all those years ago. 💜Ambience is charming and congenial. Love all the rooms. Our server was terrific if not a bit harried. The place was packed on a Tuesday eve! Delish special salad, divine entree(dover sole). The reason for -1 star is the dessert "Cheese plate". A let down after a memorable meal. Pedestrian tiny slices of unremarkable cheese; a cold brie, and a couple of what I think were forgettable cheddars, some crackers, baguette slices, grapes and fig preserve. For the price, and the end of a great meal, was a let down. What made up for the disappointment, of dessert, was the Champagne brought to us by the house. Outstanding!
