    The food was wonderful and the service was the best. We were in St. Augustine for 6 weeks, and we went to Forgotten Tonic three times. We will definitely be back next year on our stay in St Augustine again. It was a bit noisy, but that did not deter us. Great restaurant!

    The biggest disappointment was the surprise "optional surcharge" that we had to inquire about. The owners make the patrons pay for employee benefits apparently. Nothing on the menu about this "optional" charge that wasn't optional.

    Nice atmosphere. Great service. Food good, interesting options, but quite expensive. Everything was rather over seasoned & salty for our tastes. Tried a signature cocktail that the waitress recommended which was disappointing. Very small, sweet, & not much alcohol. Just tasted like cranberry juice. Did not like the optional surcharge idea. It felt a bit presumptuous to us. Yo should be covering your staff costs with their basic pay, not asking us to do it and feel guilty if we don’t. We just took the amount charged off the 20 per cent tip. Overall a nice place but not quite hitting the mark for the price point.
    Forgotten TonicResponded 5 days ago
    Thank you for your thoughtful feedback and for highlighting what you enjoyed about your visit. We're sorry to hear that some aspects of your experience didn't fully meet your expectations, particularly the seasoning of our dishes, the cocktail, and your feelings about the optional surcharge. We aim to offer a menu that is both intriguing and satisfying, so your notes on the seasoning and cocktail will be shared with our culinary and bar teams. Our intention with the optional surcharge is to transparently support our entire staff including those that work behind the scenes in a way that reflects the changing dynamics of the hospitality industry, though we understand this can be viewed differently by our guests. Your feedback is invaluable as it helps us to refine our offerings and approach.

    Another great experience. When in Saint Augustine we always try to do a dinner here. Great service and excellent menu. Drinks are overpriced imo (about $40 bar bill after tip for a martini and a double crown and coke) but all in all, a great place that I'd highly recommend.

    Drinks and food were delicious, server was great but manager basically told us our time was up as we finished our drinks and dessert because our table had a reservation that “started 10 mins” ago l. as a party of 8 we spent a lot of money and that approach by the manager was def off putting to want to return

We truly value your feedback and would like to learn more about your experience to ensure this doesn't happen again. Would you please share any specifics about who talked to you?

    Forgotten TonicResponded on February 16, 2024
    I'm truly sorry to hear about your experience with the dishes during your recent visit. While I'm glad to see the hospitality, ambience, and value met your expectations, it's disheartening to learn the preparation of the fresh catch and chicken fell short. Our fresh catch, grilled mahi over a delightful mango avocado salsa, is intended to offer a refreshing contrast with the cold salsa complementing the warm fish. However, it sounds like we missed the mark on this occasion. Could you let us know if you raised these concerns with your server or if a manager had the opportunity to address this at your table? Your feedback is crucial for us to ensure we can provide a better experience. We're committed to excellence and would appreciate additional specifics to correct this for the future.

    I don’t know….it was a little disappointing based on reviews and rating. We were sat promptly with our reservation but it did take quite some time to get acknowledged and then even more time to obtain our drinks. The secret society tasted like an iced coffee, nothing special for the small $14 glass. The Saturn $18!) had a weird taste to it, comparing it to Prohibition Kitchens which is absolutely on point and delish. The menu is small’ish but everything we had was great - Cajun egg rolls, fried green tomato BLT and chicken Bella - nothing bad to say. Service was a little slow and it was 2 hours from seating to leaving for 2 people. It just didn’t wow me, but I can’t say I wouldn’t go back….probably for the Cajun egg rolls again.

    Attentive well paced service. Fried green tomatoes and the shrimp and grits with Etouffe were wonderful. The fish special of Mahi over avocado salsa was the hit of the night.

    Fun place but it seemed like it took forever to get drinks and food. 6 in our party and not everyone’s food came out at once. Great drink menu. Festive interior decor.
    Forgotten TonicResponded on January 28, 2024
    Ed, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the festive decor and our drink menu at Forgotten Tonic. However, we're sorry to learn that your experience was affected by the wait time for drinks and food, and the issue with the staggered arrival of meals for your party. We strive for prompt and coordinated service, and it seems we fell short during your visit. We appreciate your feedback as it helps us improve. We hope to have another opportunity to serve you and provide an experience that fully meets your expectations and our standards.

    This is a top 5 destination for me when I come to downtown St. Augustine. Food, drinks, service, atmosphere are great. I plan on making this place a part of my standard rotation. Best burger in STA. Chicken Bella is soooo good. Get the egg roll app - its delicious.
