We sere very disappointed in our meal. Had to wait over 10 minutes for a server to wait on us. Food was mediocre and overpriced for what we got. Restaurant was noisy even though it wasn't full. The salad was mostly all greens, not much else. The root vegetable soup was tasteless. The grilled shrimp were cool not warm even.

We always enjoy our visits to Augustin. On a busy night, it gets noisy, but the location is one of the has-poets places in town. The square is often full of families having a lovely evening together. I really enjoyed the mezzo platter—lots of food and a variety of delicacies. The Brussel sprouts are another favorite. We were a large group and included an 8-year-old and an adult in a wheelchair, but our birthday celebration went smoothly, and the staff were ever so helpful and gracious.

Good gracious, I love Agustin Kitchen's calamari... that paired with a local beer was a fabulous lunch! My husband had their reuben sandwich (made with corned beef) with a tasty red wine... great fries came with that... The service was spot on... Just a little pricey for an "everyday" lunch but we'll be back before long.

I really want to like this place as much as I used to but the service is just terrible. We waited for everything - our server to return to our table, our food to be delivered, our dirty dishes to be taken away. Our server was not well versed in wines or cocktails that would pair well with the food. When we walked in, we were greeted with a terse, smile-less "Can I help you?" rather than a "Welcome." - that kind of set the mood for our group. The food is good quality but presentation is lacking for the prices. Overall, I'd probably be willing to give this place one more try, but would have difficulty recommending it to others.

The service was slow, and the food was not good. The kitchen had a heavy hand with the spices and sauces, one of our dishes had cornmeal cakes with it, which were burned.

First time at AK. The wine list is unusual and having "draught" wines at a fine restaurant seems very odd. The spirits list was also narrow. I ordered the seafood/linguini special entrée and my wife ordered a small plate and a salad. It came in a reasonable time but my entrée was cold. Cold pasta, cold seafood, ugh! Of course a cold dish is probably the worst possible outcome because if they just heat it up it's dry and if they redo it you eat alone since the other entrée has been delivered...so I just dealt with it. They offered a second scotch but that was a drink before dinner (we had no appetizer) not one to accompany it. Then the waitress asked if we wanted dessert. Not a comp dessert for the cold dish. Really?? Then the bill came. They didn't take off the entrée nor "comp" the drinks. This is no way to deal with a problem. If you are downtown, GO TO Maynard's. I've dined there four times and every meal has been perfect!

Overall the food was very good. The server was acceptable, but could have been a little more friendly (her demeanor was sort of flat and monotone). One comment, I made the reservation via OpenTable but luckily I called the restaurant directly to verify the reservation, because they indicated that I did not have a reservation.

Took my daughter and niece here for brunch before a show. Food took a while as there was a large party ahead of us. But the server told us of delay and also brought us some muffins to tide us over. Food was fantastic when it arrived and I really enjoyed the salt and vinegar potatoes. All in all, I will definitely return.

Menu was pretty limited. Prices too high for quality of food. Flies inside the restaurant makes for an unappetizing meal. Last time I went to this restaurant I encountered a pesky fly as well. I feel like the restaurant has gone down hill in the past year or so.

There with clients. The client had to ask for things a couple of times before they would be delivered to the table. Some of the food was enjoyed the other was just ok. This restaurant has been very hit or miss. If you don't get the burger, you probably won't be happy.

We had a great time celebrating her birthday with a friend. She got a complimentary piece of cake which was luscious and enough to share.
Our server was attentive but didn’t hover and I appreciate that our conversation wasn’t interrupted.
My only quibbles are these. I ordered Caesar salad with anchovies which came fresh, not canned. I’m fine with that but some others might not be. Other than that the crouton was stale...Tucson and unusual humidity would account for that.
Overall this is one of my favorite places and, luckily for me, not too far from where I live.

2nd time visiting this restaurant. Food is great, as is the service. The reason for the "fair" comment regarding ambience, our table was annoyed by 4-6 flies during our entire meal. We were there for a business meeting and the fly situation made the environment uncomfortable.

Chose Agustin for our 51 st wedding anniversary. Ordered the ribs which stated on the web site--smoked for 10 hours. Was suspious then but did not heed my instincts . The ribs were so salty neither me nor my friend with us could eat them . Potatoes cold. Server was great and after 1 and a half hour wait offered us a complimentary cheese plate that I would not put on my table at home. Nope . Not going back there and will go out of my way to tell others not to waste there time. Oh! Tried to fool me with a smoke ring on the ribs. They simply added a meat cure and let it set for awhile. That's what caused the ribs being to salty. Can't fool an old BBQ man from Kansas City . Going to serve any BBQ??? Better know what your doing.
