Augie's Front Burner
Just Us Girls NightWe enjoyed our dinner and have decided that this will be our monthly restaurant. We support local Springfield restaurants.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!We truly enjoyed our meal. The food and service were both excellent!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Springfield's bestI dine at Augie's several times a year. I take clients there or go with family/friends. The menu never disappoints and the staff is very attentive, but without being intrusive.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find for visitorsLocated in the heart of Springfield, we found this restaurant to our liking. The beet salad was excellent as was my entree - beef short ribs. It was served with root vegetables and scalloped potatoes with cheese. My husband had soft shelled crab, equally delicious but slightly tough (something that happens with soft shelled crab) prepared with hableno peppers and cous cous. He enjoyed that very much. My parents ordered the soft shelled crab but wanted it prepared differently. The chef was delighted to prepare their crab sauteed with lemon and butter over lemon basil linguine. It was very nice of the chef to accommodate my parents. Staff was helpful and patient with our requests. Raspberry Sangria - delish!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable mealThe food was very good, as was the service. On Tues. they offer many wines at half price. They have a nice wine list. For starters we chose two different salads - a beet and tomato salad, and a crispy goat cheese salad. Both were very good, but the shallot vinaigrette on the goat cheese salad had a hint of sweetness that I didn't care for. For entrees we chose the half duckling and the pasta of the day. The daily pasta was a pipette pasta with seared scallops, peas, tomato, and a Cajun cream sauce. I expected the Cajun cream sauce to be a little spicier. The heat was very subtle, but it was good nonetheless. The one misstep was that my dinner companion's salad plate was cleared while I was still eating my salad.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA little disappointedOne person in our group of 7 had a very tough and nervy steak and he was looking forward to a good steak all week. It was disappointing as this was a graduation celebration and I wanted the food to be outstanding for all.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded my expectations!Special event in town - many busy restaurants. Augies took and honored a reservation for a large group. Servers were VERY attentive and well-informed about specials, ingredients, etc. Chef made special meal for my guest with dietary issues. Food was delicious - 12 clean plates after a wonderful meal.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food in Springfield !Consistent quality food, with a nice presentation in an eclectic atmosphere with professional wait staff that's not pretentious. What more could you want?
Lobster bisque, a staple on the menu
Unique appetizers... (please bring back my "duck nachos"!)
If you aren't up for one of their larger unique salads, ask for the side Caesar salad that's not listed on the menu, and save room for dessert.
Nightly specials, local ingredients... morel mushrooms, Bunn Farm meats.
Attentive wait staff5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA winner in SpringfieldGourmet approach to food, wonderful drinks, personable service. A winner in Springfield!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNever having been to SpringfieldNever having been to Springfield before, I checked with Open Table and Trip Advisor for a restaurant recommendation. The reviews of Augies were on the mark. Great decor, service, and of course great food. Would definitely return.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA more private settingA bit overpriced for the atmosphere and food quality, but still enjoyable. The staff was extrememly cordial. The interior needs a facelift. Food quality is high, just not as high as the price suggests.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMI had been to Augie's forI had been to Augie's for lunch a number of times.
