Really awesome food!

We had a business dinner here last Thursday, night and was really impressed with the new Latin fusion cuisine. I had the meat lovers special which included grilled (to perfection), bison, lamb pops, and skirt steak. Really outstanding. I also had the Tres Leche for dessert, although the riches... read more

I am writing this review so the owners of this place can think about what they did last night to the dozens of couples that selected Americas for a romantic night. Had reservations for 8:45 for 4 people due to a special occasion. Arrived at the restaurant at 8:30 to see like 50 people outside in a line. No other... More

This is the absolute worst high dollar dining experience I have ever had anywhere! We had to WAIT in line 30 minutes on the street just to check in for our RESERVATION! Then we waited another 40 minutes for our table only to be sent to ANOTHER line to be seated. Everyone was crammed into tiny wobbly wooden round tables.... More

Bar above, Restaurant below on waterway in Woodlands. Specials are delicious (seafood) but pricey. Weak cocktails. Bar scene for younger late nite set. Attentive restaurant service. Upstairs bar service below average.

Americas features steaks cooked in the South American style--which I think is delicious. Every meal stars with fried plantains dipped in three sauces. The Churassaco steaks are great and come with great sides including rice and brands and baked plantains and fried potatoes and vegetables. The wine list include some good reasonably priced wines and some excellent big time wines... More

New Year's Eve is hit-or-miss at most restaurants, with their thick crowds and fixed price menus. We arrived before our reservation and sat at the bar for a bit. The bartender was incredibly distracted and busy, our drinks were mediocre, and we wondered if we'd made the right restaurant choice. But once we were seated, our wait staff and sommelier... More

We went here for NYE with 4 other couples. We were able to get a last minute reservation, which may or may not mean anything. They had a 3-course $67.00 price fixe menu with a surcharge (which they didn't mention when I asked about the price and menu on the phone) for their Churrasco steak. The mixed seafood ceviche starter... More

My wife and I went here to celebrate our anniversary, as we have before. The Paella we shared was amazing! All of the servers were friendly and very attentive. It has become one of our favorite places to eat and celebrate. We noticed that there were several large parties being served, but neither the food nor the service suffered.

This year we had to make our plans last minute so we called America's and were pleasantly surprised to learn that even though they were full, they would accept walk-ins to sit at their bar. Their bar is comfortable so we were very lucky to be able to walk right in, get a seat and be served drinks by the... More

Americas used to be one of my favorite places to eat anywhere in the Houston area. The Churasco steak is Awesome. However, they have got rid of some of their more seasoned servers and it showed. Our last time there the waiter kept pushing more expensive wine than what we wanted and the food was NOT near as fresh or... More
