Americana Restaurant

Americana, a little gem of a restaurant has been located at the prime corner of 15th Street and Camino Del Mar in Old Del Mar for 12 years. A comfortable and inviting sidewalk café wraps around the restaurant surrounded by lush vegetation and ocean views. Americana serves a great breakfast, lunch & dinner with a full bar in the day light hours. Many say the Bloody Mary’s are the best in the county. Americana Restaurant does not require reservations for Breakfast or Lunch so please come on it. At night time, the lights dim and the restaurant becomes a quaint bistro serving Mediterranean influenced fare with carefully chosen wines and great cocktails. Bon Appetit.

"We didn't have a good experience. The restaurant had no record of our Open Table reservation. The waitress was unfriendly, forgot our bread, and overall service was bad. Can't really say anything good about the food, either. We had fried calamari that was very chewy, the pasta was just OK, and the burger was soggy and fell apart. Thank god for the rosemary fries."

"We went for dinner Thursday evening. It was not busy at all. Got good table indoors. Outdoor seating was also available. Server was nice but overall service seemed very slow. We only saw one server, may be due to slowe traffic.
Food was excellent. We had great time once food was on the table.
We went again on Sunday for breakfast. This time place was busy and many servers to serve but service seemed slow but faster than dinner time.
Food was great once again.
This place does take passport discount card.
Great place for romantic or family gathering. Good choices for the brunch menu and included few vegetarian choices."

"The menu looked promising but, the food was a bit over average. The service was my big issue. The waitress acted over worked and rushed. The hostess/manager (not sure what she was) acted exhausted and started turning off the lights as we were leaving (it as 8:30). We were not the last guest to leave and there were still diners in the restaurant.
I think they should simplify their menu because clearly it's a little too ambitious for the chef.

"Food was good and service was quick. We did go on a rainy evening so the restaurant was pretty empty, which may account for that some. The place seemed very busy for breakfast that morning so I take it as a very popular local spot. Although we went to go have a traditional sit down dinner, we opted for just a tapas style meal instead. We ordered sliders, buffalo wings and flat bread (Hawaiian style. i.e. Pineapple and ham). All were very tasty and properly cooked. I ended up eating all the buffalo wings (6 pieces) as they were a little too hot/spicy for the wife, but alright by my taste. We shared the sliders (3) and the flat bread (Appeared to be about 12x6 inches) and had lemonade and Ice tea for drinks, both of which were fine."
