We are still talking about the cauliflower dish. Seriously! The food is so good here, and the space is lovely.

Best restaurant in Oak Park, with the quality you'd expect of many sought-after reservations in the city. Chef Armando strikes an amazing balance of spice without overwhelming the unique ingredients of his dishes. Don't miss the cauliflower with manchego and almonds or the scallops with yuzu butter sauce and forbidden rice (but have never had any dish I didn't like here, and have tried almost all of them!)

A unique and outstanding menu is just the start of what makes Amerikas great. From the friendly and helpful manner in which the servers interact with you, you can tell they are truly dedicated to the restaurant, and the atmosphere of the space is really pleasant.

Although the menu is limited, the selection is solid and the food is excellent. Great service and the sweet potato soup offered to us prior to our meal is excellent. Highly recommend.

I really have to say it was an altogether wonderful experience. My wife and I had the octopus and the Burundi and the cauliflower. All the dishes were wonderfully balanced with excellent flavor and great spice balance. Without being overly seasoned. We can't wait for our next visit and wish this establishment well. We are proud of their accomplishment given the current status of pine dining today.

Amerikas is a wonderful restaurant. We liked the Nuevo Latino menu with several interesting dishes. Menu items are for sharing and my wife and I shared the Chile relleno, the barramundi, and the asada. All were delicious. Kosta, our waiter, was very attentive and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back.

You should update the online menu. I checked it out before I came and it wasn’t available when I went to order.

Ahh! I have a new favorite! The food great, the drinks refreshingly great, and the service amazing! I highly recommend this place, if it's still on the menu the chuleta dinner is a must try.

Enjoyed the “started” soup (amuse bouche)!!!!!
Service was very good. Decor is minimal and could use a refresh. Seating was a tad uncomfortable.
However, the food was amazing!!! My second visit and the food has definitely improved.

Have tried them before and experience was the same. Loved it! Not much variance in the menu, but the selections are broad enough for a variety of taste buds (including vegetarian), though not overwhelming. The ambiance can't be beat. Service is relaxed, but attentive. Favorites are the cauliflower small plate and scallops entree.

The food is amazing, but they have to work on their food timing. Some of us had to wait for our food so that we couldn't all start together and the salad that we ordered as a starter came with the rest of the food. Otherwise, the experience was great.

This is not the same experience for brunch as it is for dinner. Arrived at 10am when our reservation was, but the front door wasn’t open until 10:10. Food didn’t arrive for an hour. 15 mins after getting our food the server brought our check. 5 mins after that he picked it up and put it right in front of me and asked me if we could pay now. Food was still being eaten. Food tasted good, but greasy. Won’t be back for brunch ever.

Had a table for 8. A little
Loud so sitting in the middle I could hear everyone but the people at the opposite ends couldn’t hear well. The service and food were remarkable. Really liked the rellenos and chicken. I don’t eat octopus but my friends do and loved it. Would go back TOMORROW

There was one server for inside and sidewalk. He was not at all welcoming, didn’t have time to be. We ordered iced tea (it was on the menu), they don’t have iced tea and haven’t had time to update the menu and by the way “ we don’t have decaf coffee or steak and eggs. The brunch menu was very limited and the lack of items limited it even more. We left and went to an nearby restaurant. The server was very relieved.

Sangria was excellent-very different
Pineapple flan was superb
Vegetarian cauliflower was very tasty
Entire meal was wonderful and their recommendation for 3 dishes per couple was perfect to be satisfied but not feel you overdid it. We had 6 dishes for 4 people not counting the shared dessert.

Amazing restaurant! I drove past this place a few months ago and then found them on Instagram. The food and aesthetic looked phenomenal. I went there this past Saturday for lunch and was not disappointed. Great, interpersonal service experience, the food was amazing. You can tell that eat plate is prepared with full effort from the cook. The space is open and welcoming. I'll be back for dinner very soon.

The restaurant was nice. It’s very cozy and has good lighting for a special occasion. We were greeted warmly and seated quickly. We got a drink from the bar which was good, because our server didn’t show up for quite some time. The other couple in our party was really looking around for a drink before he came. My pear bourbon drink was innovative and tasty. The wait on the food wasn’t bad. The tacquitos we got were good, but over fried and super crispy crunchy. The hummus was very nice, well-presented and tasty. The presentation of the meals is fancy and the food all looks tasty. The water glasses were small which means our server needed to come back frequently, which didn’t happen. We were left looking around quite often for him, as we were often left without water.
Overall a nice place. They have a nice small menu. But it was noisy and service was subpar for a Saturday night. We were disappointed but would try it again sometime.

Food was very flavourful and delicious. We specifically loved the calabazita (pumpkin with mushroom risotto), Barramundi and Asada - although all the dishes were great. I had forgotten how good the food was and am glad we went here for Mother’s day dinner.
