    We waited 30 minutes for a table and service was slow. We enjoyed our meals (chicken sandwich and shrimp and grits). Had a very good old fashioned while waiting for our table. Cool interior and ambience.

    Thank you for sharing your Mothers Day experience with us! We're glad you enjoyed the service and atmosphere at Forgotten Tonic. It’s great to hear that the complimentary cake for moms added a nice touch to your visit. However, I'm sorry to hear that the beet and carrot soup was too spicy and the shrimp and grits were over-salted. Did you have a chance to mention this to your server or one of our managers? We always aim to rectify any issues right away to ensure our guests leave completely satisfied. We value your feedback and hope to perfect your next dish with us!

    I didn’t like the surprise 2% extra charge for wherever it goes, I guess the kitchen workers, dish washers etc. Just increase the menu by 2% and pay these workers more. They deserve it.
    Forgotten TonicResponded 7 days ago
    Thank you for appreciating our team and recognizing their hard work! The 2% surcharge is indeed an optional addition that directly supports our full-time staff with enhanced benefits, including those who diligently work behind the scenes. This approach allows guests to see exactly how they contribute to our team's well-being. We understand your preference for simplicity in pricing and appreciate your suggestion. We'll consider how best to balance transparency and convenience moving forward. If there's anything else you think could elevate your experience to five stars, we'd love to hear it!

    Really good cocktail bar and decent wine selection. The food was great - we had the shrimp & grits and the short rib special. One of the best shrimp and grits I’ve had - good amount of spice and blackened shrimp made it much more flavorful than most places. The restaurant location is also good at the edge of the real touristy area.

    If you’re a drinker - this place is for you. It’s essentially a bar with a HUGE menu of all manner of cocktails, wine, beer and alcoholic beverages. We ordered a chicken sandwich and a Caesar salad with chicken. The sandwich was mediocre with a strange sauce. The chicken was offered as either blackened or grilled. I ordered grilled. I was served blackened. I pointed this out to the waitress but to no avail. We were there for lunch at 12:30 pm and the place was empty except for one other couple. The music was loud. I would not recommend this restaurant unless you’re looking for a place with a really wide array of alcoholic drink options.
    Forgotten TonicResponded on April 26, 2024
    Thank you for your feedback. We’re sorry to hear that your experience didn't meet your expectations, particularly with the chicken sandwich and the level of noise.

Your comments are invaluable and will be discussed with our team to better our guest experience. We appreciate your honesty and hope you find a place that better suits your tastes.

    We had a nice time at Forgotten Tonic on our double date. It was a bit loud inside but not annoyingly so. Our waiter was attentive but seemed grumpy. Drinks were so fun and tasty and interesting. It was cool trying out a few. The food was decent. I enjoyed the brie but my chicken was weird. It was flavored well but the breast itself had chewy, rubbery spots. I've gotten chicken breasts like that at the store before too. Not sure what causes it. Overall we had a lovely date night!

    As non drinkers we are always looking for great food. This place nailed it. Interesting and tasty options yet not over trying to be cool. My husband and 18 year old son loved it (fried fish sandwich and BLFGT sandwich). I had a nice salad with grilled fish. Service was friendly. Price just right. If we return to St Augustine we will return to Forgotten Tonic.

    The service and food were the best in St. Augustine. The cocktails were unique and refreshing. We order the fried green tomato sandwich, blackened redfish, and shrimp pesto dish. Everything was so fresh and flavorful! Truly a neighborhood gem.

    Food was good but nothing to rave about. Service was slow; the restaurant was busy but not packed. We waited over 10 minutes before our server came and had to search for her once. Good restaurant but not 5-star food or service.
    Forgotten TonicResponded on April 6, 2024
    Thank you for your review. We're glad you found the food good but are concerned to hear about your experience with our hospitality and service pace, especially since it doesn’t align with our standards. To help us improve, could you please share the name on your reservation, who your server was, and if any issues were discussed with a manager? This information is crucial for us to address and ensure it doesn't happen again. We’re committed to excellence and appreciate your help in reaching that goal.

    Our waitress was hard-working and kind. The food was excellent. It was not as high-end of an atmosphere as anticipated. There were people dressed in shorts and t-shirts.
