Amerigo - Memphis Ratings and Reviews

It had been many years ( around 6 years I believe ) since we had eaten at Amerigo's and I arrived hoping nothing had changed. I am happy to report the food is still superb, the bar still bustling and the service as excellent as always! We had made the move to the suburbs after having twins and Amerigo's was one of many restaurants we truly missed having in proximity for a quick bite. We ordered the famous Cheese Fritters to start and of course, they were as good as we remembered! They are still huge so unless you have a large party, I would recommend the four count order instead of the six. My husband ordered the lobster bisque next and I ordered the goat cheese salad with no walnuts and peppers. The bisque is quite good ( as I naturally stole many bites! ) but it is more of a chowder texture than most restaurants serve so keep that in mind before you order. My salad was fantastic as usual. They had forgotten the onion but our very attentive server had that fixed in seconds. My husband ordered the smoked chicken ravioli as an entree. He loved it and I cracked up at him forgetting the flash fried artichokes were not actually fried chicken. They look exactly like a chicken leg and my healthy food phobia husband took a large bite - his face was priceless. I ordered my favorite, the filet with rosemary compound butter, fettuccine Alfredo and fresh green beans. It was cooked perfectly. Again, the service was excellent. Our waiter was quite attentive and never missed a beat. The wine list had changed since we were there last and he was quite helpful in picking a new one for me. He graciously let us taste before ordering a bottle. The moment I loved best was that he informed us he had just turned in our entrees and actually seemed apologetic for it. I LOVED that he had timed our appetizers, starters and entrees! I am sick of going out to eat where your entree comes within minutes of both your appetizers and salads being placed ( at the same time, grrrrr ) on the table....

I love Amerigo's normally but not this time. I usually get the cheese balls and lasagna but decided to try something new, as did my wife. I got the seafood pasta and it was very disappointing with little flavor at a high price. It just wasn't very good. Especially at that price. She got the tortellini with crab meat. It was better than mine but not great. And the service was horrible which is not the norm. My wife didn't even want me to leave a tip which is extremely unusual. The waitress had no personality, was slow, to be asked for lemons, had to be asked for bread, never came around to see if we needed anything, and took forever to bring us the check and pick it up for payment. All in all it was the worst experience I've had there. I will not rush back though will probably give it another try. My advice- improve your recipes and replace that waitress. There are too many wonderful restaurants in town to try to complete with that offering.

Service was great. Food was hot and very tasty. Noise level was a little loud, but not to the point of still able to hear conversations at your own table. I would recommend reserving a table though. They were busy.

The food was great, but the service was even better. Ashley and Sam behind the bar were friendly and attentive. Jessica on the dining room floor was terrific. Very attentive, honest and knowledgeable. All three made this an overall great time, and made my wife and I feel very welcome.

I had lunch with my mom and daughter and all of us got something different. Although their meals, shrimp bisque and crab cakes and chicken cannelloni, were good, my lunch special with the cedar plank salmon, leek potatoes, and zucchini/pepper medley was absolutely delicious. I hope you keep this choice on the menu.
I wanted to take a date & thought Amerigo's Not So
I've frequent Amerigo's & previously had a guy that was an excellent waiter.
He never allowed my glass to get empty before refilling. I made reservations & arrived.
Once seated table had no napkins nor utensils. Waitress seated us & took long time to come back and take beverage request. Once beverages were served she took very long time to come back & take order. Me & my date ordered Salmon and was told it was only cooked one standard way medium but once we got our meal the salmon looked like Chicken it was so overcooked. She never offered us salads or appetizer it seemed she was uncomfortable. I proceeded to ask her a question and ask her to come a little closer because she couldn't hear me, but she seemed uncomfortable with that request also. I have enjoyed Amerigo's in times past, but not sure if I will ever take someone there that I want to have a spoil free outing with. It was a very disappointing evening. The comfort level was not there it seemed uptight & the waitress personality made me uncomfortable. I left her a minimum tip when I would have normally easily tipped 20-25%.
My wife asked for a romantic surprise, and it was!
GPS had us circling the shopping mall but it was worth circling the block. Delicious and well presented food, attentive service and great decor. It more than made up for the location and view of a parking lot.
Always good food
Went for lunch, one of my favorite restaurants, and was warmly greeted and quickly seated. Nice waitress was pleasant and attentive. Our entree was brought before we ever received our appetizer. Ordered coffee and dessert sand waited for coffee. Food was terrific as always, but the lost appetizer order is unacceptable. Always a favorite place to eat, a great value, and pleasant atmosphere.
a great value for a really good dining experience
Amerigo's is consistently great for their food and ambience and service. We dine out every week and it is consistently one of our favorite spots. Reservations are recommended. Our favorite entrees are the chicken piccata and the scallops Veneto. The menu has a great variety. Specials and regular dishes from the fire brick oven are always tasty. Prices are very reasonable and the loyalty program makes for even a better value. Love this place!
Try the Early Bird special
A wide variety of choices are available from 4-6pm weekdays as Early Bird offers. Appetizers, salads and entrees. I've tried many and been pleased with every one of my selections. Portions are regular size (large). Ordered a salad and the Goat Cheese Penne last week. Few places one can eat for $12 in 2016!
We've been to Amerigos twice before and we were pleased both times. So when family came to visit we decided to bring them. We were however disappointed. The service was just alright. Had to keep waiting for her to attend, then she would forget things or misunderstand us, like asking for bread and receive one small loaf for 5 people and then never brought us more. It was like she was "off" that night. Most importantly everyone's food was mediocre especially for the price. My seafood pasta was hot and cold in spots like it had been heated in microwave. Then I barely any other seafood besides shrimp that was dry and tasteless. Other complaints with each of the 5 dishes at our table. We were disappointed and embarrassed we had given such rave reviews. I'm not sure what was going on with management or kitchen since last year. We won't be back due to the hefty price tag for something I could recieve at Olive Garden.
What happened to Gluten Free
We chose to go to Amerigo's at the beginning of the Thanksgiving holiday as a place with which we've been familiar as a "steady neighborhood" venue - and because the menu on the website indicated gluten free pizzas as well as pastas. We were thoroughly disappointed to find out that, in fact, they do not have gluten free pizzas, and the listing of gluten free pastas was not very accurate either. To his credit, our server provided a complex order for 6 people without fault (nearly a first for this restaurant), and we did manage to pick and choose to provide an appropriate gluten free meal for our out-of-town guest, but we were both disappointed that their apparent "public menu" was not available and concerned that their ability to really identify gluten free foods - in an era of increasing choice or need to follow such dietary restrictions - was clearly not a priority nor an availability here.
