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.

My favorite restaurant in NYC. My fiance and I always come here for the Goulash whenever we are in town. It's expensive, but everything is absolutely delicious and the atmosphere is beautiful and intimate. We came here for brunch and dinner on our latest visit and were thoroughly happy with our drinks and food for both meals.

One of the best steaks I’ve ever had and the peppercorn glaze was beyond amazing!

The restaurant was really noisy. Hard to carry on a conversation. The female server was excellent!!
We ordered salads; excellent. We ordered steak frites. Very salty frites! The steak was impossible to cut, either tough meat or dull knives. Would not recommend it. Disappointing!

Food was good, service was not. 3 different wait staff served as our waiters. Took at least 45 minutes to receive entrees without any apologies or explanations. Super disappointing

We were seated at a table near the bar, where there would supposedly be less noise. People coming in without reservations were allowed to cue up at the bar, which resulted in a large & very noisy crowd adjacent to our table, that continued throughout our time there. Conversation at our table was impossible. Food was good, but overpriced for serving in this atmosphere. I would recommend this venue only for joining in the crowd at the bar for a boisterous evening.

I would recommend Augustine to a friend. The many reviews are accurate. The restaurant was crowded, so instead of a small table in the room, I ate the bar. The bartender rendered perfect service and thoughtful suggestions. I ordered the scallop crudo appetizer. I'm from the Gulf coast and eat a lot of fresh seafood. The scallops tasted fine but they were overwhelmed with the horseradish and (what tasted like) grated citrus rind. My entree, at the bartender's recommendation, was the chicken. It was awesome. I had dessert, the apple turnover. It was great too. All in all a very good experience.

Like Balthazar, a French bistro in NYC. Great location in the Beekman Hotel, near City Hall and Fidi. Service was professional and on point. Grilled octopus excellent starter and salads are great.
Perfect for business meeting and long lunch with friends.

I hoped to find someplace special to take friends from out of town for breakfast. Augustine’s exceeded all of my expectations. The food and service were exceptional. We all enjoyed the spectacular setting of The Beekman Hotel. This is truly a gem in lower Manhattan!

It was an uneventful dinner - I imagined it would be an amazing experience due to many difficulties to have a table in such place - it was absolutely normal and a bit boring. The food too - boring... Service was practically not existent... Not a charming experience.
I think that their bar is a much nicer representation of this place. Thanks.

One of the great new places in FiDi. The food is always excellent, the staff very well trained and not over attentive, i.e., they let you enjoy your meal. Appetizers, main courses and desserts are all excellent and a wine list that covers all tastes. Has become our go to for an evening out at an excellent restaurant.

McNally hasn't a better looking spot, including Baltazar. There for a Restaurant Week lunch. Despite our limited experience, a couple of small matters were annoying. Tap water was at summer room temp; ditto wine. That aside, food was quite fine. A beet starter very tasty and nicely presented. Steak frites about as good as it can get. Everyone satisfied.

I would have rated this top stars but am very upset with the management. I took a friend for a birthday lunch and we had a wonderful appetizer, lunch and two drinks. We apparently over stayed our welcome and after the second drink, what appeared to be a manager, came to our table and said we’ll have to ask you ladies to leave and then abruptly left. There was definitely a better way to handle this- maybe asking if we would like to move to the bar since they needed the table- but apparently spending a couple hundred dollars for lunch only buys me food not courtesy. I would not recommend this establishment.
