    Out of what I, and my wife wanted. What we had was very good tho. Meatballs were not good at all. Seemed very overcooked. Probably will skip next time.

    Everything was perfect for Night of Lights. The value of the theme drinks was pricy. My coffee cup size drink was $17.95. We understand that with the themed atmosphere and Nights of Lights that we will pay more. Our server, Eden, was professional, pleasant, and attentive.

    Forgotten Tonic is a gem. We got there early for our reservation and they seated us early. Cocktail menu has unique holiday offerings. Our server was attentive without being annoying. The food was delicious and very reasonable. Highly recommend the fried green tomato appetizer. I had shrimp and grits etouffe and it was delicious. My husband had the grilled chicken sandwich. The chicken was moist and flavorful. The restaurant was festively decorated. Overall a 10 out of 10

    The food was great . I went around their winter menu - the egg role appetizer they have tasted sooooo good! When it came to the main dish I wasn’t satisfied with the side of sweet potatoes option they have that has teriyaki sauce . It was a-little to overpowering which became salty. The main dish “catch of the day” (red fish) was super flavorful ! Without a doubt I’m sure everything else on the menu would have been amazing ! Ohhhh & the drinks are amazing as well!!!

    The server was excellent! The kitchen gave us regular french fries when we had ordered truffle fries. The food runner came back and took our fries and mixed them in the truffle oil from what we could tell. Not good! For the price we paid I'd expect a redo not a refresh. We had guests from Myrtle Beach and they could not believe they took the fries for a redo. Forgotten Tonic had always been on the top of our list as a place to have dinner. Now, not do much.

    Had an excellent meal at Forgotten Tonic. Had reservations and we were seated immediately. I ordered a pomegranate martini and it was tart and well balanced. We had the meatballs for an appetizer since it was still happy hour (see last page of the menu for happy hour specials) and they were delicious. Enjoyed the cheese sauce it was paired with. The pasta primavera was fresh and delicious and the Chicken Bella was well seasoned and perfectly cooked. Absolutely would recommend and we will return!

    Friendly energetic staff. Deep cosy booth and old brick charm. A perfect location, tucked in between the galleries on the oldest street in Saint Augustine, in the US actually. My seasonal salad with beets, goat cheese and grilled shrimp was delicious. And the fried green tomatoes were as good as my mama’s. Very fun and upbeat for young and old alike. The owner came by and said hi. Fun evening. I’m a local And it was worth driving downtown for.
