Love it, work nearby, and nice for business lunches. Upscale and urbane, service can be spotty though, especially in the evening.

Long time fan and customer of the Americano

Today was a pretty terrible service experience
Had to beg multiple times for items we previously ordered or requested. A very annoying and sub par dining experience.

The dinning room is very nice with a cool vibe, there is also outside dinning in the back of the space. The food was OK, My daughter and wife had a lobster roll which was a lobster salad with very little lobster. My sons Steak & eggs was a very small portion. Service was not great. At one point the waiter brought milk for my coffee, I asked for cream instead, by the time he came back my coffee was cold. Seems like they need to get a better handle on who is responsible for what. They validated my parking and it is very close to the Highline entrance. The best part was the cool Latin jazz quartet that played in the dinning room.

Wish I'd known that dinner didn't start until 6pm when I made my 5:30pm dinner reservation... Either way though, we enjoyed a bottle of wine and a very nice appetizer while waiting. Dinner was delicious.

We were searching for a nice restaurant not too far from the Javits Center to have dinner after the auto show. It did not appear that there were many options. I came across Americano on Open Table and the menu was just what we were looking for. Service was great, we were seated and served quickly and the food was absolutely delicious!

Pricing was good. The ambiance of the place was pretty cool as you would expect from a boutique hotel. We ordered from their prix fixe menu but they did not have the soup du jour available so the only other choice as their avocado toast which was delicious. The lobster roll was too saucy with too much celery - it was okay. Their service was lacking. Although our server was very friendly, there was no follow up, we were missing utensils and kept having to call their attention. We had to be the ones to ask for refills on our beverages and to order dessert. It didn't seem like the staff had a system in place. May have been an off day for them but a shame since it is our first time trying the place.

Valentine's Day dinner, & this place is local for us, so decided to try it. Everything was great, except after being seated, there was a huge delay in our server introducing himself. There seemed to be some confusion about who had our table, but even after this was resolved, our service remained poor throughout. The meal was good enough that we'all give it another shot, but will be a bit on guard...

We loved the brunch dishes we ordered -- tasty preparations in something like "spa cuisine"-sized portions -- great for enjoying a meal with rich ingredients without going overboard. Eggs Benedict had bacon and broccoli rabe, a delicious combo -- much more interesting and textured than spinach. Lobster roll was somewhat spendy on the menu, but arrived with a good-sized serving for the price.

I liked the decor, which was very modern and open, but my husband thought it was a bit too much like dining in a lobby. Goes to one's preference.

Service and hospitality was warm, professional and all awfully good looking. Welcome to Chelsea.

Was really quite surprised. If you're in this area, it's one of the only options for lunch before noon and it's one of only a handful of options for lunch on a Monday. The food was excellent--could have had a keg of the soup! Portions were substantial. It was rather empty for our pre-noon lunch so hard to judge ambiance and noise when it's a full house. Service was friendly although could have been a bit more attentive (esp since the place was mostly empty). Let's put it this way: I came back to my office and told everyone about it. There IS food life off of 10th Avenue in West Chelsea.

For a Hotel Restaurant attached to a boutique property, The Americano offers exactly what one would expect; a varied menu for all comers, excellent execution and a hi vibe. But with that goes poorly organized but friendly service by a team that lacks supervision and training. Every food item was well executed, well presented and packed with flavor. Without question pork chop is one of the stars of the current menu. The wine list is spare but thoughtfully assembled and offers more gentle price points for the demographic attracted to the hotel as guests. If you are in the neighborhood the chef's expert work is a reason to go.

Service was great and just attentive enough without crossing over into annoying. The space itself was lovely. Our entrees, while delicious on paper, were slightly overcooked and tended towards dry. This was especially true for the kingfish dish, which is served over yucca roots—the fish itself was just a tad overcooked and the yucca, while a nice addition in place of something more standard, like potatoes, were unappealingly starchy without the benefit of a juicier protein to eat them with.

Great location for lunch when galleries hopping in Chelsea. We were very happy to find a live music Jazz band with an exceptional talented singer. The food is tasty compliments the minimalist decoration. The only downside is the single toilet for all genders, you fond yourself waiting in the middle of the lobby.

It was a very slow night, at 8.30pm there were only 4 tables booked. We picked a bottle of red wine, but they only had 1 left. The wine list was nothing special, but clearly way overpriced. The scallops came 10 minutes after all the other plates. The salmon was overcooked, and the coq au vin was dry.
Depending on where you're sitting, there is a draft through the glass door.
None of my friends or myself are planning to return to this poorly run place.

Terrible experience, would never go back. I came here for a spontaneous brunch date. There was a live band which was the best part. The place was not busy at all. Our waiter took our drink order and the bartender brought it out relatively fast. Afterwards we lost our waiter. No idea where he went, literally vanished. Had to flag down a busboy to take our food order. He went to look for our waiter and couldn't find him. So he eventually took our order. Then we waited some time for our food. When it came out we couldn't figure out how one egg dishes cost $19 a plate. At this point we had many different entities serving us. They gave us a salad which we thought was included with one of the meals. Turns out it wasn't, the busboy just messed up and added it to the order. At this point, we wanted to leave so bad that I just threw my card without looking at the bill. It was just a stupid experience. Too many places in NYC to eat for anyone to waste their time here.

Always a great experience; great cocktails, fantastic brunch, great ambiance for a date or business meeting. I kinda don't want to share how much I love this place :) I've been for every meal, so far brunch is my favorite here (huevos rancheros and the chicken sandwich are my go to's).

Used to love this place for their jazz brunch. The food is less impressive these days though and the crowds have thinned out. Feels more like a hotel restaurant now (It actually is but used to feel more special). Service is ok. Too many people standing around not doing much.

Well I was stuck at an event at the Javits Center. It's pretty much a wasteland in terms of food. I did some research and came across The Americano , walking distance away and decided to give it a try. It is a very nice restaurant. Great small live jazz band. I found the menu small and the prices high. We were three and ordered the burger, chicken club and the huevos Mexicano. Burger and club were ok. The egg dish was disappointing in presentation and taste. In a pinch it will do...plan for it to be expensive for what it is.
