Food did not meet expectations. Salmon was good. Short rib dish was not good. Pork dish was ok.
Our dining experience started out sitting 15 minutes at our table with no server to come by. We found out the hostess had not told the server we were there. Next I ordered a Old-Fashioned cocktail, that was made with crushed ice and served in a wine glass. It looks like the bartender came straight from Olive Garden.
Prime rib was cooked to the correct doneness, but served lukewarm. The onion rings were frozen from a box or bag, cooked too low and oil temperature they were greasy. The price point of this restaurant is not inexpensive, we would not be back
Food and service was great! We will return for special occasions. Jessica, our server, did a great job!
Service was very good and ambiance is nice, however food fell far short. I ordered the short rib pasta, and it was horrible. Noodles tasted raw and fell apart when I was eating. The sauce was a brown gravy that would have been OK with mashed potatoes but was bizarre on pasta. I like salt but it was too salty for me and the noodles were drowning in sauce. Not authentic Italian at all and not appetizing in any way. My partner's steak was just ok, not good enough to make up for this huge miss.
Great place for a Sunday lunch with an awesome ambiance . . . would recommend to any who is looking for nice quiet place to enjoy your afternoon brunch.
I have had many lunches here and all were terrific. This was my first dinner here and it was very good and we will go back.
Had a great dinner! Unfortunately we had billing issues. It was our anniversary and we were given $40. We gave the cash to the waiter and asked the rest be ran on the ticket, and we planned on tipping on the card. He ran THE WHOLE AMOUNT on our card. When we called the assistant manager, she didn’t know how to reverse what happened. The manager attempted to fix it 3 days later AND RAN $40 more dollars instead of refunding. Finally get to accounting (a week mind you after our dinner) she said the card number was incorrect. But no one called me to fix. Money is finally back in our account after 8 days. The staff was apologetic, but it should have never taken this long to resolve. And I was always the one calling. No urgency on the staffs end, and no compensation given for the trouble. This was our first time ever going there and it will probably be our last.
I had amazing service and would highly recommend thus establishment to am that I know!
Over priced for the quality of food. I ordered the eggplant Parmigiana and it was very burnt and greasy. To be a slow night, service was definitely slacking.
Food was subpar at the price point they charge. Filet mignon was $39 and it was small and dry. Kids food was fantastic! The service was fantastic and the restaurant is clean and nice. Also convenient for those staying in the hotel. We won’t be going back due to the food at such a high price however.
My family are regulars at Augustino's most weekends for the fresh and extensive brunch buffet, the reliable and delicious (if not overly-adventuresome) menu and the above-board service of the staff. The setting is very pleasant, and during warm months, the outdoor seating is relaxing. The bar is elegant but not extensive, although the bar staff are informed and helpful. Even on the busiest days, food delivery is still pretty good for the size of the restaurant, and I have to receive a mediocre meal there - never a bad one. Above all--given the atmosphere, the hotel setting and the service--the prices are remarkably reasonable.
It was good
Great food, great service! Bravo Augustino’s!
We were as next to a exit door on a cold day with a draft, despite the abundance of more comfortable seating. Food was hot, slightly above average in flavor. For 4 people at lunch the bill came to $66.00. I included a $10 tip for a total of $76. I just saw a charge on my card for over $80.00. Not sure how that happened.
The service and food was excellent. My department had our Thanksgiving luncheon here and enjoyed it so much they wanted to have our Christmas luncheon here as well.
Excellent menu choices snd great service.
Enjoyed a leisurely breakfast with family after early church. Food and service were nice.
Drove to Augusta from Virginia on Thanksgiving for a social event the next day. Missed traditional Thanksgiving meal with family at home. Agustino's was a welcome replacement. Late request from family for additional places could only be partially accommodated on Open Table. However, a visit to the Maitre 'd the afternoon of the reservation increased the seating from 3 to 6 at the requested time. Service was prompt and attentive. Food was delicious. Enjoyed breakfast buffet there both mornings.
Good brunch and menu items. A bit pricey but great service and good quality.
Waitress in the bar side of house was the absolute worst I’ve ever experienced. I wish I could have gotten her name but she was never at our table long enough to read her name tag. Absolutely the worst.
Breakfast was just ok, nothing I’d ever go back for.
Overall a very nice place. The food was good for the price paid
Very good dinner, nice wine. Very quiet evening, restaurant sort of empty for a Friday night.
I made a reservation at Augustino's for a lunch with a friend I had not seen for a long time, looking forward to good food in a quiet atmosphere. The atmosphere was quiet. However the food left much to be desired. Although the salmon was fine and well-prepared with a tasty sauce, the shrimp and grits was tasteless and literally floating in visible grease. The caesar salad was overwhelmed with too much dressing; we sent that back and got another one with dressing on the side. Service was fine, not outstanding. If someone were to ask me for a recommendation, I would warn them to take great care and not to order the shrimp and grits.
My biggest downer about our dining experience was the fact that the televisions in the bar were very loud, and they distracted from the expected ambience of the dining experience at a restaurant of this caliber. This is not our first time driving here, and overall we thought the food was adequate, and the service was excellent. However there needs to be some kind of buffer between the bar and the tables.
Fairly good experience. Unfortunately, it was early yet there was no veal. Food was good but not as great as it usually is.
Took over a hour to get food. One entree had to be sent back because it was over salted. Group was finished eating before replacement entree was brought out. Has to get up twice to get waitress. Coffee and deserts were never offered. Another entree didn’t come with all items. Will not return no matter how convenient.
Food was awesome! Will be back there again. Best shrimp and grits!
My sister had eaten there before so on our yearly sisters trip I wanted to go there. Their menu was delightful and could handle my strange dietary needs. The service was excellent, bartenders gracious, and will be going back whenever I get the chance to be in Augusta!
We couldn't have been more pleased. The food, the atmosphere, the wait staff were all wonderful. We made our reservations and your choice of table was perfect. Our family was able to talk, reminisce and hear one another while enjoying lunch. Thank you.
A team of our people are staying at the Marriott at the Convention Center every week for months and that is where this restaurant is located. We've eaten lots of meals there and can always count on it to be good food, good service, at a fair price. We've tried just about everything on the menu with every thing good. Also have been there for lunch which is a great deal. Soup, Salad, and pasta bar where a chef makes your pasta dish from ingredients displayed and you get to pick. What a deal at $13! Thanks staff at the restaurant and hotel for taking good care of us!
We drove into Augusta a little after 9 PM to stay the night on the way to Charleston. We decided not to drive around and find a restaurant on a Monday night at this hour.
To our surprise the restaurant and hotel bar were tied in together and we decided to have our meal at the bar just after 9:30pm. We had the flat bread pizza, calamari and chicken Parmesan.
Everything was prepared well and was better than expected for "hotel food" The pizza was described as a 12 inch flatbread and this thing was at least 16 inches in diameter and very good. The calamari was also well proportioned and was devoured.
We enjoyed it!
Menu items were decent. Pricey- especially the salmon at $29 for a piece of it. Staff was friendly. Bar visit was pretty good. Had the shrimp and grits while enjoying a cocktail.
Outstanding as usual. We will be back !! EVERYTHING was perfect for our 35 th wedding anniversary dinner.
The whole experience was fantastic. From the initial greeting through when we walked out. Our server Ryan was very knowledgeable of the menus items and took the best care of us. He was a true professional that obviously cared about his job. The food was amazing in presentation and taste. We had been on the road traveling all day and did not have to worry about anything as our every want and need was addressed. Outstanding venue to eat great Italian food.
It was totally awesome I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who are in love. trying out new relationships or just wanting to be with your friends. the food was awesome the flavors were amazing and you're right by the Waterfront where you can go for a lovely stroll!
Friends came into town and stayed at the Marriott, where the restaurant is located. Easy enough to get there. Greeted appropriately. Not sure why, but specials were never announced to us. Our waitress asked if we wanted the braised rib special when we were looking at the menu. How are we supposed to know? Then when I decided to have the special braised beef, she starts in on another special with soup or salad. Quite frankly, Everything else was great. The service was subpar for the prices on the menu.
I cannot recommend this restaurant. My food came out cold and was sent back only to have the same dish right back to me again. I had a lasagna and I would've thought they would've brought out new plate. What they brought back look like lasagna soup. The manager did stop by to say he was sorry but offered no compensation.
We came at lunch dinner would've been better but ambience is nice decor also food selection was small but nice wine selection also service was fine as expected. Overall good I would recommend the restaurant to anyone.
The table was set nicely. Water already there. The environment was clean and neat.
Our waitress was nice and had appropriate professional skills. The food was enjoyable
by most of the group report. One person said her sandwich was cold. The environment
was not noisy. We all enjoyed everything basically and would definitely want to
book this room again.
