La Nouvelle is the next story in our culinary journey by Michael Lugo. This opportunity to bring French Nouveau cuisine to our city has us so excited. Bringing to the helm Matthieu Landillon from the coastal city of Marseille, La Nouvelle allows us to explore classic French Bistro fare with an elevated edge. The atmosphere will lead you to the streets of Paris without leaving St. Augustine.

    We were on our honeymoon and had made a reservation. When we arrived we inquired whether we might be able to eat outside and were abruptly told "NO". We said OK and were shown to a four person table indoors. We noticed there was a two top by the window at the next table and asked if we might sit there. Immediately the person that seated us said, "NO. This is your table!" We complied. We did notice that the two top by the window was unoccupied for 1 1/2 hours while we were eating. The food was outstanding, but we wondered why the staff had to be so rude? Parisians aren't even that rude the last time I dined in Paris. Will most likely not return.

    Food was great start to finish. But, the noise level was pretty high during the first part of the meal. When the six top left it became an enjoyable experience.

    I felt like I had been whisked away to France. The food was delicious. The best Quiche Lorraine I have ever had. Our server was attentive and helped us choose a wine. The Lavender Crème Brûlée is a to die for dessert. Now my favorite place in St Augustine!

    I took my 94 yr old mom to this newer French restaurant for a surprise lunch. We loved it! The historic house is beautifully laid out with a dining room, wrap around porch and garden patio. It was hot so we ate inside. Started with a baguette,French butter and French breakfast radishes, had a delicious veal broth based onion soup,then a meaty crab cake for Mom and a perfectly seasoned steak tartare for me. We finished with a wonderful lavender crème brûlée. Service was divine and there is an extensive wine selection. I did have a glass of French Rosé. Total with tip was $125. Enjoy!!

    Great food and service. When we arrived at the restaurant with a reservation, we asked about outdoor seating and were told that all outdoor seating was reserved. From our table inside we could see an outdoor table for two on the porch was set and remained unused for 2 hours we were in the restaurant.

    La Nouvelle is a wonderful additional to the St Augustine dining scene. A French Bistro-style menu provides many choices ranging from small plates to full dinners. The quiche is savory with a flaky, buttery crust. The croque monsieur is so flavorful; each bite is addicting. Service was excellent. Extensive wine list. La Nouvelle should top everyone’s list when in St. Augustine.

    My friend and I had a lovely time. Dinner was an elevated experience with great service but also completely approachable. As a vegetarian, I felt very cared for by the server and chef who made an amazing special dish. Our server made spot-on recommendations. The wine list was immense. The GM was super attentive & we enjoyed learning the history of the location. Can’t wait to return.

    The restaurant is a beautiful wooden building with lots of potential as a top class restaurant. The food was very average and well below our expectations, particularly the small amounts of sauce. Finally, it was very unusual that a restaurant like this does not supply bread and an amuse bouche.

    We had a perfect night for outside dining, The service was excellent and the food was even better. Quite a few specials were available for appetizers and entrees. they have inexpensive meals available but most were in the $35 to $45 area. It's not for the faint of heart. You will likely spend $125 to $150 for a couple if you have appetizers and wine. But it's worth the money. Everything is first class and plentiful. you will not leave there hungry. I would highly recommend this restaurant but bring your big checkbook

    Went for my birthday with 4 friends and a baby under 1. Was a little nervous the baby would be a problem bc of how small the restaurant is but everything went perfectly. Everyone was so sweet, the food was AMAZING and not outrageously priced. And the outside waiting area is gorgeous. Will definitely come back on my next trip here.
