“Outside Drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

I took my SF based team here for after work drinks. It has a great outdoor area on Embarcadero with table service.

Highly recommended for such an event.

“Vibrant scene, clean bay area cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

Americano is a slick young vibe that makes for good spectator sport and the foods not bad either. The menu is not extensive, in fact its quiet precise. Ranging between a few salads, pizzas, pastas and some mains, choices are limited. Portions are just large enough to share (salads, pizzas). Most of what is served is organic, local and seems put together with a lot of care for the key ingredients. This is quintessential bay area cuisine – clean, simple and bursting with flavor. The wine list is not extensive, but not inexpensive either, it is great quality though, nothing should disappoint. Visit on a Thursday or Friday evening (with reservations) and get the full and vibrant bar scene.

“nice way to spend the holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

We dined here on Christmas and thus ordered from a special prix fixe 3 course holiday menu with choices within each course. All selections were excellent. Our entrees included Liberty duck breast, butter braised black cod, and the vegetable medley. Appetizers consisted of Tuscan kale soup and gnocchi with braised oxtail. All dishes were excellent. Desserts were sticky toffee pudding and cara-cara granite. There also is an excellent cocktail list and a very lively bar scene on some evenings. Both the décor and the service were gracious and refined. The dining rooms are very comfortable, but although the restaurant is on the Embarcadero, not all rooms have water views. You can request a water view when reserving.
