As always, the food and service were amazing. The rowdy table next to us was less than acceptable. They used the “F” word more than the cast of Yellowstone and couldn’t pull it off since they resembled Jamie instead of Kayce or Rip.

Mostly kidding, but those boys were rowdy and I am pretty sure they think they could bring LSU to a Natty.

The food is really good, but tiny portions and exorbitant prices. It's such a tired cliche that the more you pay, the smaller the portion. E.g. you get a 6oz strip steak for $55. That should have been either filet mignon or 12oz.

Everything was great until I finished my espresso and found a piece of used gum in it.. Disgusting! I didn’t recall anyone apologized to me personally and the manager was nowhere to be seen.. I left them a note on the receipt.

Awesome dinner. I’ve eaten at several restaurants that were very highly rated including the best in the US (Zahav) and this compares really well. Black and Blue gnocchi and the duck breast were excellent! I would highly recommend it.

I prefer the old August. It is now a machine of quick food and turning tables. The highlight was the female sommelier who nailed each course with exciting options and I never waited...she ensured the wine pairing arrived prior to the food. Fish dishes are still the best here

Lovely place, spectacular food, very attentive and friendly service. The menu may strike some as a little limited but there is always something for all tastes. The bar is dark and cozy and, I think, unappreciated, maybe because the food is so good. This is a great place if you want to impress someone with the best in dining atmosphere.
