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.

The food was delicious but the servers were not friendly at all. The friendliest person we encountered was the bartender; she was smiley and engaging. From the hostesses to the wait staff, there was not one person that smiled or was friendly. Very disappointing.

We were excited to reserve a friday night dinner at Augustine. What a disappointment. There were problems with everything we ate: our appetizers were too cold and my salad was underdressed; my wife’s filet mignon was served on the well done side of medium instead of medium rare as requested and the accompanying fries were mediocre, the short ribs in my gulash were undercooked and tough, and while the presentation was pretty, it did not allow space to mix the accompanying spaetzle with the sauce. Overcooking filet mignon and undercooking short ribs? At these prices one expects better. Much better. Our waitress was really nice though, and the wine list had some good choices.

There was a piece of wire in the eggs. My guest was very gracious about it but the restaurant should have insisted on providing a new plate and taking the cost off the menu, neither of which they did. Very disappointing.

I brought my mom and brother to a weekday lunch at Augustine. Really enjoyed my chopped chicken salad and green fresh juice. My mom loved her Beef Gulasch and green juice. Service was attentive and superb. I love the restaurant interior - I feel like I traveled to France during my lunch break.

I had reviewed the menu prior to going to the restaurant, however to my surprise I felt as if the actual restaurant menu skewed more toward Germay or Eastern France. All in all the food was good and I left feeling satisfied with my meal.

The food is average but the prices are not. If the meal had really been special I would not have minded spending what we did.

Very cool design and vibe. Probably best to just go hang at the bar and have a few drinks.

The service was adequate.

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.
