Love the ambiance of this place, but love the food even more! We go everytime we are in Houston, and can't wait. I love the plantains and cheese sauce they give you to start. Their steaks are divine, and their tres/quatros leches is AMAZING!

We went to "Social Hour" on a Friday at 4:30. We had few seating options and the ones that were available did not have a table setting. We waited over 10 minutes to have someone acknowledge our presence. We joked we were not 'cute' enough for them to take notice. We were not offered the chips as were all the... More

Went with my wife to the River Oaks location for brunch buffet. Treid almost everything. Ceviche, especially having all you can eat ceviche, was amazing. The whole roasted pig, while impressive to see, was not very good in terms of taste but the other meat, empanadas, and vast array of central and south american items was excellent. Bloody Maries can... More

Americas has got to be a top restaurant choice of mine. It's unique and the food and service makes for a great experience. From the dark modern decor to the pre-meal plantains served at the table, great wine list, and menu options, this place is great. A great pick for a special occasion meal.

Super restaurant! The service is impeccable. We had several outstanding waiters watching over us. Angels wings were wonderful. Taquitoes were more wonderful! Excellent wine list. And did mention. . . the sea bass rocks! Highly recommend.

Superb service combined with fresh well prepared food and perfectly matched wines made for a fantastic dining experience. I don't usually go for those chef's choice sampler type meals you see offered at so many places these days, but my sister encouraged me to try it here and all I can is WOW! I'm not really much of a wine... More

We recently had the pleasure of dining for the first time at America's on West Gray, and I can safely say the decor of this restaurant was the most unusual I have ever seen. I felt like I was sitting in the middle of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party: the wall behind me looked like it was covered with giant... More
