We celebrated our anniversary here in 9/25/20. We loved it. It’s a beautiful atmosphere. Our server was great and very attentive. We got the Cajun egg rolls to start and then shared the blackened shrimp and grits Etoufe. It was so great and fun spin on shrimp and grits. Now the drinks were amazing and the ladies behind the bar impressed me With their simultaneous shaking and stirring two drinks at the same time. I will definitely be back.

Absolutely incredible. Quiet and lovely. Our request to sit at the window was granted. Our server was amazing and attentive - even gave us a free dessert to celebrate our anniversary! We can't wait to come back.

Absolutely amazing! Everything about this restaurant is top notch!! Definitely now my favorite spot! Spectacular food, service and ambiance! My last visit was so good that I was afraid my follow up visit couldn’t be as perfect, but it certainly was! Once again exceeding my expectations. Every bite was divine!!!

Forgotten Tonic is a must try! We made reservations for a Thursday night to celebrate my boyfriends Birthday. We were seated immediately & ordered happy hour drinks and the Montenegro Meatballs which were delicious. For dinner my boyfriend got the Filet Mignon which was cooked to perfection and I highly recommend the Pasta Primavera with Shrimp, there was a solid portion of shrimp and had some crispy asparagus on the side! The staff was so friendly and even brought a birthday dessert out! You should definitely try out this place for your next date night!

Drinks were awesome! Unfortunately, the food was another story. They served me completely raw chicken and my wife had a burger and the bun was pretty much frozen. They were extremely apologetic and we sent both of our entrees back and once new ones were cooked it was pretty tasty. They comped our dinners and one round of drinks so they definitely made up for the problems and we’ll give them another try because of that! We enjoyed ourselves nonetheless.

Went for lunch and had a wonderful time. My husband and I sat at the bar and enjoyed the FGT, soup and arugula salad. Everything was great. Most enjoyable was talking to the owner- he was so nice. They practiced social distancing. I can’t wait to visit again. Also the drinks were delicious.

Our table wasn't quite ready @ the time of our reservation so we had drinks @ the bar while waiting; perfect! Hannah, our server was attentive but not overly, perfect again! I had the Cobia on stir fried grains; super tasty not overly Asian tasting & my husband had the pasta Primavera that was outstanding, though the shrimp he added w/ it he thought were a bit overcooked. Make a reservation as soon as you can for this delightful gem in Saint Augustine!

Great atmosphere and great little spot to enjoy good food/drinks. Vacationing from TN and went because we heard it was a good spot. We made a reservation and got there a little early. We ordered drinks and they were served to go so we walked around while we waited. Would definitely come back!

Never been here before, chose it for my husbands birthday. St. Augustine is our favorite city to explore, always somewhere new to visit. We will definitely be back to visit Forgotten Tonic as the cocktails were amazing as well as delicious and the food was exquisite. Don't forget the service, Joshua was awesome and very knowledgable.

Amazing! The service was impeccable and the food was absolutely delicious! We started off with the Fried Green tomatoes and Fried Olives, shared the BLGFT and then ended with sharing the Brown Butter Cake. A lot of our meal was not only base on what we like, but on the recommendations of John. Thanks John! It was the perfect meal! But I gotta tell ya…I love, love, love those fried olives…I highly recommend trying those…YUMMY!

(This restaurant is located where Cellar 6 used to be. That was a great restaurant as well. Good things keep happening in this spot! Woot!)

We met friends for lunch and it was perfect. Good food, nice ambiance and a very pleasant server. The lunch menu was very limited but it didn’t matter once the food came. The truffle fries are amazing. We started with those and fried olives yum!!
Four of us had the arugula salad with blackened shrimp yum again!!
It’s tucked away from the main drag but still close enough. We will definitely be back next time we are in St Augustine.
