    Both the food and service were outstanding. It was a bit pricey but worth it. It is rare that everything you order is perfect and that was the case. I had Rack of Lamb and my husband had Osso Bucco. The accompaniments to the bread were great- roasted garlic, balsamic and olive oil. We were celebrating our anniversary and the staff helped us to enjoy a very special occasion!

    This is the second time we have dined at Old City House. This time we brought another couple with us. We had pre-dinner cocktails at the bar before sitting at our table. The espress martinis were delicious. We all had different entrees and appetizers and all enjoyed them. The service was excellent.

    What a wonderful evening at the City House. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate our large group and seat us indoors when the weather turned . Everyone had a great time, the food was amazing and the staff could not have been friendlier or more efficient! Kudos for a job well done!

    Exceptional dining experience with creative meals and presentation with fresh seafood and garden vegetables, The old world decor played on your senses moving you to feel as if you were visiting in Europe. Service was perfect from start to finish with timely entrée delivery along with choice of beverage. One must order the homemade crème brûlée for dessert as it was tasty, soft and with a toasted top. Nice intimate dining area, bar & waiting area. A must see and experience this delightful restaurant in downtown St. Augustine.

    We were so disappointed in our long waited experience. Our waitress was “just getting over the flu but continued to hack as she took our order and also handled and handed us our food and drinks! My husband and our guests had pretty much lost our appetite by this time. This was their anniversary dinner. We ended up having to eat snacks for supper.

    We arrived early and they happily accommodated us and seated us. We ordered the shrimp cocktail to share; 5 large shrimp and the spiciest cocktail sauce ever! It was good but way beyond a normal cocktail sauce/very horseradish forward. Next we each had a bowl of creamy mushroom soup and it was by far the best I’ve ever had. A cup just wasn’t enough. Wish they had a bathtub full. Main entree I got the osso bucco and it was great, accompanied potatoes and asparagus over salted however. Hubby got the filet mignon and it was medium vs what he ordered, medium rare. It’s always customary for the server to at least wait at the table for that first cut into the steak. She was nowhere to be found. By the time we got her attention, I was well into my meal. Hubby of course sent back his steak and said he’s have the osso bucco like my dish. Very disappointing because I had to eat alone while he watched. Cooking a steak is a basic 101 chef skill. Plus the quality of the steak was far from prime. So hubby had a better entree finally. He too said the potatoes were over seasoned and salty. When the bill came, they didn’t remove the steak as it was $10 more than the osso bucco. So again a wait to get that adjusted. Very minimal “I’m so sorry” about all of this , or a visit from the owner/manager to the table or not even a free dessert was offered for our inconvenience. Then with the up charge for using a credit card ( like people carry $200-300 in cash on them for dinner!) this left a bad taste in our mouths for what we had hoped to be a nice celebration. With all the other great restaurants in the area, we won’t be back to this one. Nice Christmas lights outside however!

    Excellent service even better food. My full rack of lamb was the best I have ever had in my 71 years. The special of the day, a crab topped tritail filet was excellent as well. Presentation was as impressive as the flavor. The appetizers were VERY generous. When in St Augustine we will definitely return.

    Very busy night for them, definitely understaffed. Service was spotty, but genuine and positive. Food was fantastic, especially the Lamb Chops. Someone should really turn the lights down during dinner service in such a pretty room. It was like we were on stage the whole time. Overall good experience; could have been great with some corrections.

    Would suggest a few things. First, offer more than one option for the side vegetable. Second, change the charcuterie to add a few bits a fruit and only a few olives, rather than a large martini glass filled with olives. Third, dim the lights in the evening. Other than that we enjoy coming every year for dinner when in St. Aug.
