    First time here... and we had an excellent experience. For an appetizer, we ordered the Tuna Tartare with Avocado, Waffle Potato Chips, Soy Ginger Dressing and the Tomato & Watermelon Salad with Whipped Ricotta, Basil, Balsamic. And for dinner, we had the Sole Meuniere with Sautéed Spinach, Marble Potatoes, Lemon, Capers, Brown Butter and the Swedish Veal Meatballs with Chanterelle Mushroom Sauce, Lingonberries, Pickled Cucumber, Potato Purée. It was all so well-prepared, we had to stay for dessert for the Salted Caramel Creme Brulee.

    I made reservations for my husband and I for an Anniversary dinner. The location worked perfectly being equidistant from where we both were earlier in the day. There are not very many restaurants on the upper east side, location and menu attracted me to August. We both try to eat healthy and are gluten free. There were several choices to choose from. I had the cold cucumber soup and vegetarian plate. My husband had a salad and the duck entree. Both of our meals were delicious and served in generous portions. I recommend this restaurant and we will be going back when we are in the area.

    My husband and I both dined on lobster entrees. I had the lobster salad and he had the lobster roll. Both were excellent and fresh! We sat at the bar and had yummy cocktails as well. Definitely a repeater !

    Lexington Ave in the 60's is not a restaurant haven. This is my go-to neighborhood choice whenever I want a reliably great meal in very convivial surroundings.

    The food was quite delicious & menu seemed like a gathering of favorites from all over--we weren't sure how the food related to each other.It's not a seafood place tho there's a lot great fish, the cornbread was delicious but it's also not Southern fare...we were curious about the Swedish meatballs but that seemed like a cooler weather dish...we completely enjoyed our time & the food, we just couldn't quite figure out what kind of restaurant it was. Which is fine, really...

    I enjoyed my eggs Benedict but the hollandiase was smokey flavored. The bread was different. I'm not sure if they were trying to be fancy and unique but it missed the mark. They were kind and the food was ok but we won't be going back.

    The wait staff is weak. It seamed that bus staff waited on us. Not wait staff. Bus staff is very important to a restaurant but lacks detail experience and enthusiasm to share with the patron. Should I go back I’ll sit at the bar so I don’t have the same weak experience.

    Always a solid food performance. I had the Norwegian Salmon with toast and creme fraiche appetizer followed by the ahi tuni on crispy rice (which I've had elsewhere). The flavors were well blended and the fish was fresh. My son had the NY strip and it was cooked perfectly the way he requested it. Good atmosphere and convenient to our apartment. We originally found August at it's old location and were very happy when it moved around the corner from us.

    Waiter overcharged us by $20. He charged us dinner prices at lunch. Luckily my friend looked at the itemized receipt but they had already charged us. It then took him over 30 min to cancel and rerun the cards. Food was mediocre at best… not enough to get me to come back.

    Food is good here. We had the Sole and Lamb chops. Recommend both. Service was lacking. Bread slow to arrive and then boom! Appetizer and dinner on the table. Restaurant was not busy so not sure why servers were inattentive.

    The food was horrible, the lobster in the lobster roll was chewy and grey in color. The omelette had no flavor at all. We did not even attempt to eat our food, after the first bite.

    The food took a long time to come to the table. My inlet was overcooked. We ordered sorbet for dessert. Extremely small portion with not a decoration in the plate. Positives were nice waiter, good ambiance and not to noisy at lunchtime.
