    Both my husband and I had the pork shank and it was outstanding. The meat was so tender it just fell off the bone. Our server Robin made this meal enjoyable and memorable with her with her serving skills. I highly recommend this restaurant when traveling to St Augustine.

    Such a little gem downtown! We love going to Old City House when we have a celebration, or as a special treat for visiting friends. The atmosphere… in the old house… is cozy and inviting. The food is exceptional. The cocktails are creative. Presentation is elegant. Service is fabulous - we love Eduardo! Highly recommend!

    The restaurant is very quaint and nicely decorated. The food was disappointing. The She-crab bisque was rich and very tasty, but was served barely warm. The rack of lamb I had, while perfectly cooked and tender, was served in an overly sweet Demi-glaze that overwhelmed the lamb. My wife’s beet salad was quite tasty, but the shrimp were quite small. Overall good, but not great!

    The overall night was a great event. We enjoyed the appetizer and bread service. Mack the server was fantastic. The only thing that I was concerned with was the amount of time between the appetizer and the main course, which was over 30 minutes.

    We started with a perfectly prepared shrimp cocktail appetizer. The beef tenderloin for the main course might have been the best I’ve ever had, and the crab-stuffed flounder special was (I’m told) amazing as well. We enjoyed the key lime torte for dessert, which was delicious and unexpected. We sat outdoors on the patio, and it was a beautiful evening in historic St. Augustine. The food was perfectly proportioned and beautifully displayed. Great meal!

    This was our first time at Old City House restaurant. It won't be our last. Everything about our experience was wonderful. It's a small place and the ambience is excellent. Kind of old fashioned. We have dinner out fairly often and have been disappointed with the noise level in most places that prevents having any decent conversation with table mates. Old City is one of the quieter places we have been. So nice. Our dinners were all excellent; cioppino, lamb chops, swordfish and flounder. The swordfish and the flounder were specials of the evening. I love swordfish and have it often both at home and in restaurants. This swordfish was the best I have had anywhere. My pre dinner martini cocktail was well made. The wine list is not extensive but is sufficient to complement any dish. The creme brûlée dessert was also outstanding. All in all a wonderful experience.

    This is one of my very favorite restaurants in all of Saint Augustine. The food here is an absolute work of art and the flavors dance on your palate! Prepare yourself for a true European dining experience. Bring your appetite and your favorite dining companion for a night you won't forget. Fun fact, there is only a $20 corkage fee to bring in your favorite bottle of wine!

    We eat here more than once every time we have visited for the last four years. Normally we sit outside in a little courtyard which is splendid. This time. The weather was just a little bit cool so one night we outside in the next night inside. The vegetable lasagna is amazing as is the presentation.
