    This was the perfect place to celebrate a special Anniversary. We brought our own bottle of very special wine, enjoyed it with the crab bisque soup and ahi seared tuna appetizers on the veranda outside in lovely spring like weather. Our waiter didn't rush us as we made an evening of good food, wine and conversation. The crab cake dinner and halibut did NOT disappoint...so fresh and yummy. We were so happy to have tried this new place (for us) instead of a more commonly known one here in St Augustine. We'll definitely return.

    Our experience overall was OK but we waited more than an hour for our dinner order to arrive at our table. The delay may have been a result of ordering oso bucco which takes time to cook. My suggestion is go to collage for the best food and superior service, My flounder was OK but served on a pile of mashed potatoes?

    I had a reservation at another restaurant for an outside table but cancelled it and reserved a table several days ago for 4 people tonight INSIDE at Old City House. Got to the restaurant and they told me they had booked a private party so had no inside tables available. It was cold tonight. We tried to sit outside by a heater but too cold for folks not right by the heater. We left before ordering. This is the second time old city house has done this to me. HOW ARROGANT AND RUDE! You have my phone number- at least have the decency to text me to tell me you can not honor my reservation! I won’t be back. My rating of the food was from a previous visit. This restaurant shouldn’t be allowed to be on Open Table.

    We had read rave reviews of this restaurant, and were expecting a great experience. There was a little mix up in our reservations and we ended up sitting outside in their garden, which turned out to be just lovely. Our server, Mack, was charming, knowledgeable and efficient. The food was delicious, especially the She Crab Soup. Main courses of Crabcakes and Cioppino were also wonderful. All in all, a memorable evening.

    The dining ambience in the outdoor courtyard was lovely. We went around 6 which was less crowded. Our server was first class. A small variety menu but Lamb lollipops and filet steak was cooked to perfection. Pricey but worth it. I would recommend 100%. Just discovered the open table app and it’s is so convenient!

    Lovely visit with friends over drinks and dinner in the outside courtyard. Sever Jorge was great. Our dinners were superb, and the special attention to Plating and presentations added to the overall experience. We are frequent diners here and do this on weekdays to avoid the weekend tourist congestion that makes finding a parking spot difficult. It’s also quieter in historic district restaurants.

    Meals can create fond memories and our dinner experience at Old City House certainly did just that. The evening was warm so we chose to eat on the patio surrounded by beautiful plants and lights. The attentive service from the entire wait staff was wonderful, especially our waiter Nick. The food was outstanding in presentation and unique in flavor. A perfect evening from beginning to end.

    One of our last days in St Augustine and second time to Old City. Dinner was outstanding as was the first time. Adam served us this time and he was above and beyond the call of duty. Timely, polite and accommodating to let us enjoy desert outside where he cleaned and prepared a table. Made the evening nicer and showed well for the restaurant. Thanks Adam.
