Our dinner at the American was delicious. The service? Outstanding. We also enjoyed the quips and zingers from a funny, curly haired bowtie-clad man. A real hoot. Perhaps we will be lucky enough to see this space again once it is "reimagined". My only complaint was that I could not see the Rieger from my table, only some sparkly old Christmas lights and the Mayor's dead tree. Yawn. JK it was beautiful. Thanks again, everyone.
Food was Excellent, service was ROYALTY Class, everything, the Valet knew when we were checking out and had the car warmed up on the cold night - we truly felt like Royalty - Please do not close this place
Truly the best night of my life. The staff was amazing! They helped arrange every detail of my marriage proposal - right down to the valet. . The food, drinks, and atmosphere were perfect. Many thanks.
