Augustino's at the Augusta Marriott
Pleasantly surprisedWe have been dining at this restaurant for a couple of years but this was the first time with the "new" menu. We loved the Portobello Mushroom appetizer, the Martini Salad, and the flourless chocolate torte. My grilled salmon was also very nice and my spouse enjoyed his pasta. The service was great. We wish the restaurant had more booths for two instead of the less comfortable half booths and a bit more ambiance--dimmer lights and music at night.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe overall experience wasThe overall experience was very enjoyable and comfortable!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAverage Hotel Dining ExperienceWent to Augustino's to celebrate a family birthday. Have been there before and decided to give it a try again. The food was prepared well with steaks coming out as ordered. That said, the quality of beef used appeared to be "choice" at best and little natural flavor. The Martini salad was very nice presentation and has a great taste. The wild mushroom risotto was below average.
The wine list was very limited and considerably smaller than I remember.
The service was superb, attentive and friendly.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMConvenient and good!I made a lunch reservation because I was part of a large group attending a conference at the Convention Center. My group of 4 arrived a few minutes early and were seated within a few minutes. We had the option to order off the menu or select the lunch buffet. Two of us ordered off the menu and two of us opted for the buffet. Food came out quickly and was very good. I had the minestrone soup and the Italian Shrimp & Grits. I liked the shrimp & grits but the presentation (bowl) made it difficult to handle the shrimp (to cut off the tail to eat). I had to have Tiramisu for dessert and it was fabulous. The atmosphere was relaxing despite the lunch rush. I would definitely dine here again when coming to Augusta.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunchI like breakfast food, but my boyfriend does not. This was the perfect fit for our delimma. He could order from the lunch menu while I dined from the breakfast buffet. He got the fettuccine Alfredo, which I thought was excellent (of course I snuck a bite.) I grazed on waffles, fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, and whatnot. All of the staff were very nice and courteous. I felt like it was the perfect date place. We were seated away from the families with potentially noisey children and the table was very cozy.7/15/2012 12:00:00 AM
