    I informed the restaurant that it was my husband’s Birthday when reservations were made a month in advance. We. I Reminded them of this event two days prior to the date. I told them when we arrived. Nothing was done special. The dessert cake was more expensive than the wine. The server was bland and we rarely saw him. Not happy with this visit. We are local residents and there are many other choices here in St. Augustine.

    I ordered the Cioppino. The broth was tasty but the mussels and clams were dried out and appeared to have been cooked separately. The shells were all open and laid out on the edges of the plate, and were very rubbery. My husbands fish special was not very special, but we found out it was $50 when we received the bill.

    Don’t order the oso bucco. It was not edible. Thick like BBQ sauce on it and tasted like reheated. My husband had fish of day and it was good.

    We have dined here several times and have always loved our experience. While the food this past Friday was delicious, the restaurant overbooked and the kitchen couldn’t handle it. We literally waited an hour for our food. We will return and hopefully this will be corrected.

    Always a good experience. Great service and great food. Table for 5 was a bit too cozy, so if you have that number, be prepared to be a bit cramped at the table. The restaurant did not feel crowded however. Loved the carrot ginger soup.

    This place is a gem. The service and food was excellent. It is a small place so I would suggest reservations. My husband loves escargot and he orders it a lot, they had some of the best, even rivaled Paris. I had she crab soup which was very good as well as the filet. Husband has veal meatloaf and it was also very good. We certainly will be back next time we are in town.

    The food was fantastic, especially the She Crab Bisque. The service was very good. It is a small restaurant, so I would recommend a reservation and it does get somewhat loud, but it is well worth it. My favorite restaurant in St. Augustine!

    Two of us had the crab cakes and were very disappointed. There was barely any crabmeat and mostly filling. The service was excellent and we were compensated for the disappointing crab cakes by enjoying dessert on the house.

    We were pleasantly surprised with our dining experience at Old City House. It's a relatively small restaurant but the tables were nicely spaced so it was an intimate experience. The menu is fairly basic. We both ordered the fish special, and it was expertly prepared and very good. The wine pour was generous, from the bottle, not a measuring device behind the bar. That's not something you see very often. The price was reasonable. We left a nice tip.
