    Always fantastic. Tasting menu was incredible. Always like to come to this place for a diverse meal that is different than the typical rowdy/noisy Nola restaurants.

    Lovely restaurant and great service. Food was very good but for the price I expected something more memorable. We had the gnocchi "black and blue", white asparagus & crawfish tart, NOLA barbeque escargot, and red snapper Pontchartrain. The amuse-bouche and escargot were probably the highlights. Also, August Carajillo after the meal was very good. The rest was tasty and well prepared but nothing special. The cork somewhat disintegrated upon extraction so had some bits of cork in the wine and the second espresso we ordered didn’t arrive but we were charged. Should have said something but the service was so good I just brushed it off.

    Waitstaff and hostesses were great! The food was very unique, but my main dish was very tough. I’ll come back though!

    This was our first August experience & we LOVED everything about it. From the White Asparagus & Crawfish Tart to the Striped Bass with Blackened Oysters Topping to the White Burgundy Wine selection by the glass. Wait staff is AWESOME & we could not have been more pleased - all 5 of us felt the same about our choices!!!

    First time back in over 20 years and Restaurant August didn't disappoint!! This is my favorite spot in NOLA, the vibe, the food, the service are all exquisite and such a welcome escape from the madness of the French Quarter. Food in New Orleans is good but tends to be heavy and August is such a lovely departure from that with smaller, lighter portions with amazing flavors that each look like a work of art! You simply must go if you are in town!!
