Augustine is a classic Parisian bistro that restaurateur Keith McNally opened in November of 2016. The restaurant, in the heart of downtown Manhattan, serves a variety of French classics including steak frites and filet mignon au poivre as well as tuna nicoise and sea urchin spaghettini inside an inviting, casually elegant dining room. It is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner during the week, and brunch and dinner on the weekends.

They did not have my reservation so you should check your system interface with their reservation system as they said it happens a lot.

If you expect to be catered to and enjoy a relaxing dinner don’t go to Augustine. Attitude in abundance for no reason

Although we enjoyed Augustine, and would return, we felt very rushed by the wait staff. There was no time between drinks, appetizer, and entree. We don’t get out much and would prefer to have time to eat and enjoy the dining experience.

We went for brunch on Sunday, at 10:30am, during the week of spring break. Amazing food, recommend Red Sunrise fresh pressed juice, beignets, omelette du jour, and eggs cardinal.

Lunch at Augustine was lovely. A colleague and I were celebrating her recent retirement and I'm so grateful to the wonderful wait person who went out of her way to make my colleague feel special. I highly recommend Augustine not only for its terrific food and beautiful atmosphere but also for its friendly, professional and caring staff.

restaurant was reviewed in NYT as a great French restaurant. I invited my guests who are french food fans. Only problem. The restaurant, without telling anyone, is no longer french. Its Austrian. I guess the famous chef left and they got someone new. Food is now mediocre and over-priced. Service is brusque. When I asked the waiter about the change, he would not admit that the restaurant had changed. only go if you want austrian food and don't care about over-paying.

Quintessential New York brunch or dinner. The food is outstanding, the decor is beautiful and you could spend all evening here. Don’t miss the Schnitzel, Gulasch or Foie Gras. One of our favorite restaurants.

Great service and room. Food depends what you order. The burger and sandwiches were great. The lobster risotto not bad but but so special. Same for dessert we tried - some really good, some not as. Happy to frequent.

Whoever our waitress was is the nicest lady in the world. She gave us every recommendation on the menu and even treated us to some cookies at the end. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone who wants to take out a nice girl to an awesome spot. 8.5 out of 10 on the Testorf scale and that's not easy to scale.

Outstanding experience! Wonderful ambience and every course was excellent. Even after reading glowing reviews I didn't expect the steak to be so outstanding but it was! At the waiter's suggestion we ordered entrees split and the results was great shared experiences. Truthfully, we may have over lingered at our table to enjoy dessert and coffee, but never felt rushed by staff. A glorious evening I would heartily recommend to others.

Wonderful as usual. I took my sister for her birthday and we had a grand time. The Four Gras Terrine is great! All our entrees were great too, the steak, lobster and goulash. Dessert was even better! Our server was very serious but did the job right. The busboys were efficient and fast. Thanks for remembering my request to have a candle blowing. That was very sweet.
