We went out with another couple on a bustling Valentine’s Day.
Augie’s was prepared. Nice VD menu, friendly service & 4 outstanding meals.
The guys had steak, the girls had fish. Nothing disappointing.
Kudos to another great evening!

The reservation included a nice bouquet of flowers for my date that were ready at our table. Hostess then ask us if we would like to move to a quieter corner table that had a little more room, which we obliged. My date had the beef stroganoff and I had the seafood bouillabaisse. Both were excellently prepared. Great environment, prompt and professional staff, and an awesome kitchen.

Great food, especially the mushroom papardelle. Service was excellent on a busy night, and a wide ranging wine list. Overall a pleasant and relaxing dining experience.

Love this place. I have never had a bad meal here. Never rushed, always relaxed fine dining. Menu is versatile and unique, always changing with the seasons to reflect local ingredients. If you have my tried it, I highly recommend the Signature Crispy Goat Cheese Salad. Yummo! Making me hungry!!!

The food was great, and they were willing to adjust the preparation to our needs. Excellent service! We enjoyed our meal and 1/2 price wine night very much.

Disappointed in the food and the menu. I had previously been to Augie’s for special occasions due to the unique menu and delicious food. The grouper was the best and no longer on the menu. The entree I ordered was very salty and the dessert didn’t appear to be cooked completely. Expensive meal not worth the price.

I had the steak special. The steak was cooked perfect. The steak had an excellent taste to it. The waiter checked on us to see if we needed anything however, he did not make a pest of himself. You must try the feta salad I think it was called. It was very unique with a breaded and then fried disk of feta. The dressing was very good. I usually have my dressing on the side, however I forgot to mention it. I felt it had a little bit too much dressing for me. It was very tasty and light. Very good.

Always my first choice for fine dining in Springfield. Worked for Augie for several years so know pretty much all there is to know about the operation and everything is always right. The best, freshest ingredients prepared and served with skill and care. I have no reason to believe this will ever change.

Our dinner on New Year's Eve was great--so glad you were open on that Sunday. The place was hopping, but not noisy or hectic (at least for the customers). The staff members were all helping each other out, making for a very good experience for diners. The giant balloons were beautiful!

We enjoyed a great family meal here while visiting Springfield. The Brussels sprouts appetizer was fantastic as was my roast chicken. The service was prompt but not too invasive. Ages 13 - 75 were very pleased with their meals. The environment is warm and friendly. Cocktails were great. Highly recommend.
