August never disappoints! Food and service is always exceptional .Consistent ,affordable- my go to restaurant.
It's a wonderful neighborhood BYOB with excellent service, excellent food and an excellent atmosphere.
Delicious - Everything from appetizers to dessert was amazing! We've been there several times and will continue to go. All are so friendly and accommodating. Can't wait to go back!
Always enjoyable! Food is great and the staff and management go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable.
Delicious dinner and very nice staff who worked to accommodate us despite our late arrival and accidentally making an online reservation for a smaller number of people than were actually in our party.
Charming decor, attentive staff and excellent food at very reasonable prices - all around great dining experience! We'll definitely be returning soon.
Barb and I loved the "new" menu. It leaves the diner with choices, or, to share with others, as we did. And so reasonably priced!
Thanks Maria, Maryann, and Taylor for a lovely time!
This was not our first visit to August and certainly won't be our last. We enjoy everything about this little gem. The food is absolutely delicious from appetizers to dessert! Can't wait to go back!
Another great meal. The food is always delicious. The service was wonderful. You must try the Roman Artichokes. We love this restaurant.
Thanks Maryanne and Maria and Dolores for great food and greater service, as always!

The major issue for August for us was that we were shocked to find out at the end of the evening that they were CASH ONLY! Fortunately one of us had cash on us. If you check on their website they quite clearly let you know that August is a BYOB, but there is no indication that it is cash only. This is an issue for me and perhaps you too.
I was so impressed by this little gem. Food and service was wonderful.
August was a great restaurant. Great food, great service, friendly, caring, and reasonably priced. They cater to their diners!
The food is always great. Waitress was personable. Just a nice place.
Consistently stellar food. Fantastic ambience. Each detail from the sweet butter to the raw sugar cubes for the hot excellent coffee makes for a memorable meal. Although I usually get the same thing because it's so delicious, this time I chose a different entrée and was wowed. This place is a GEM
Food was excellent everything from appetizers to dessert.
Great little Italian joint off the avenue. Feels like it caters to the neighborhood with its intimacy and attention to detail. Loved my fish and my wife loved her pasta dish. Would definitely come again for another birthday or date night.
Always a great meal. The food was outstanding. Would recommend this to those that appreciate quality food.
Love these ladies! Food is delicious, fresh, hot, and honest. And best of all it's so affordable
With all the local Italian BYOs in South Philly, sometimes you just don't get to one for awhile. That was the case with August. But I'm glad we went. It's cozy, friendly, has a great menu and is reasonably priced for such good food. The service was excellent, as was the desert. I highly recommend it for a small group -- it's small so anymore than 6 and you might be pushing it.
Food is always delicious. I had the tuna pasta special and loved it. The crab and asparagus salad was yummy too. My husband loves the bolognese. Only objection is it is VERY noisy but you get used to it. The staff is lovely and the owners couldn't be nicer. They are warm and friendly and continue to make me feel so much at home. Always a very pleasant experience!
dinner was good - and especially the appetizers! Cozy atmosphere - great neighborhood spot.
August is one of our favorite Philadelphia restaurants! It is really delicious Italian food served very professionally in a small room where you feel special. I had the pasta bolognese & my husband the Italian tuna pasta special. My kale & radicchio said was simple but perfect! The sautéed artichokes are my husband's favorite appetizer. Delicious homemade coconut pie. Really, really well made delicious fresh food. We love the food, the atmosphere & the chef owners.
Had their Salmon special. Small portion but delicious. Always go here with a group before seeing a performance at Theatre Excile, on the same block. Love that it is BYOB.
We had been to August before but it had been about two years since our last visit because our daughter moved out of the neighborhood. When friends from Minneapolis asked us to meet for dinner in the city we thought this would be a great place to take them. They loved it!The food was great and the service impeccable.
The other advantage is that it is BYOB.
Terrific BYO that clearly shows the love of the food with the delicate preparation of experts. The small menu is all you need...each taste pops with flavor and joy.
Great food! Very fresh fish and nice cozy ambiance. Check it out.
As always August was great. My date and I shared two different starters Cesar and beet salads. I had the salmon ,she had the sea bass. Both where perfect. The Banana bread pudding is highly recommended. I have been dining at August for years . Check it out the next time you dine out.
Excellent food as always with its characterisric authentic atmosphere. Always a pleasure and I recommend it without caveat
Absolutely loved everything! Food was over the top delicious!
Marianne continues to amaze with the way she blends different ingredients into one FABULOUS dish after another which always look and taste DELICIOUS !
Service is warm and impeccable!
Awesome food service was great.. Dessert was delicious owner came and checked on my table definitely will be back
You can bring your own alcholoc drinks, since they don't have a liquor license.
Nice neighborhood bistro. Cozy atmosphere. Good food
Always great food to be had here- have been countless times and always leave happy. A true neighborhood gem! Phenomenal value for the food that is prepared.
My fish entree was excellent and my husband' penne with shrimp was very god, too.
Open table- would suggest you recognize BYO establishments more frequently, specifically, and every other way to identify Byo wine inclined venues are visible to us winos.
As for August- excellence on so many levels. Professional and friendly service. The beet salad and Caesar salad were wonderful . Each of us were thrilled with our entrees. Comfortable and pleasant ambiance. Good value. Would definitely return.
A great spot for a romantic date. The service is great, food is delicious. Intimate South Philly cozy restaurant.
We've eaten at august on several occasions now, and have been pleasantly reminded each time what a great choice it is. It's truly a hidden gem- not on the hot-spot radar. The atmosphere feels intimate and alive, but without being too noisy or overwhelming. The menu consists of fantastic Italian pasta dishes, as well as some killer fish and steak options served with outstanding risotto. Two of the times we've gone, we brought our parents-- it's definitely appropriate for that, but also loved going on our own. When the weather is nice they have outdoor seating.
Is becoming my "go to " place. Food is always good. The penne with shrimp is excellent as was the sea bass. The sautéed artichoke hearts as the appetizer was delicious. The home made cheesecake was light & very good.
