August was highly recommended to us so our expectations were high. Service was suberb. Our waiter was accommodating and very helpful. His description of food choices were clear and accurate. Each dish was delicious! The gnocchi was fresh soft pillows bathed in creamy sauce. So good I scraped the dish clean. Steak and lamb were perfectly cooked to our liking. The pavlova with blueberry ice cream and lavender foam with honey was just down right dreamy delicious! So many textures and flavors, just wonderful! Next time we like to done in the front dining room. While it felt quaint and secluded in the back dining room, the beautiful chandeliers and windows were in front dining area. Thank you for a fabulous culinary experience!
Still the best restaurant in New Orleans. Amazing tasting menu. You pay extra for the wine pairing, but a very unique experience with fantastic food and wine. Worth the expence if you enjoy great food and wine. If you want classic New Orleans food this is not the place. If you want world class food, unique foods and wine, this is the place in New Orleans.
The meal was absolutely fabulous from start to finish. Beautiful restaurant, great staff, all encompassing wine list and outstanding food. We dined there over 10 years ago, which is what brought us back. It was even better than I remembered. Extremely highly recommended!
Restaurant August was a wonderful experience! The food exquisite; the service phenomenal; the ambiance wonderful! The best anniversary dinner in 39 years! Thanks for making it so special.
We’ve done the tasting menu a few times and it has NEVER disappointed. Top notch food, wine pairings and service!
My ahi tuna was fantastic and our server Stephen was as well. He was very accommodating of my food allergies and helpful with suggestions.
Wonderful spot for a nice birthday lunch with friends on a Friday!
The first word to come to mind is... OUTSTANDING!! Ambiance, food and staff were superb. Would definitely visit again and highly encourage friends and family to visit. Bon appetite!! Cheers~
We did the vegetarian tasting menu and it is the best meal I've ever experienced. Every dish provided a culinary experience and combined well balanced and beautifully paired flavors. We could not stop saying mmmmmm. Exquisite!
The food is outstanding! A great place to celebrate Mother’s Day!!
This is the best restaurant in the city for a special occasion.
we came to August after reading a review in the New York Times. It didn't disappoint. In fact it was a superb experience. The menu was very varied and the amuse bouche we started with set a high bar. Our waiter was pretty knowledgable and we had some good wine pairing suggestions. There is a vegetarian option, a fixed menu and a la carte so lots of variety. My flounder was exceptional, was was the gingerbread cake with black pepper ice cream. My husband adored the jerusalem artichoke amuse bouche. we had some very fine local inspired cocktails to begin. It was a great evening and we would definitely go back,
Way over rated and overpriced. Tiny portions of average or below food. Excellent cocktails.
Dress code is not enforced.
Classy upscale eatery. Wonderful food and they staff is top notch.
expected better for a highly rated New Orleans restaurant in comparison to their top restaurants I have tried in the past.
11/10 would eat again. Posting pictures to social media and tagging August
Zeke and Ben took exceptional care of us. Thank you for a lovely evening.
The lunch Prix fixe menu is good value, 3 courses for $29. What a good bargain. Outstanding salad confi, dessert ist good also, carrot cake and ice cream. The entree Wagu burger is a bit blend. Should have taken the crawfish. All in left an excellent impression on me
Outstanding ambiance nice clean dining room fresh linens nicely appointed staff. Very knowledgeable and efficient food was the best and well prepared that we had on our 9 day stay. Will return.
An eloquent dining experience and perfectly located. enjoyed tremendously
Absolutely fantastic - one of the best meals I’ve had in years. The service was impeccable, attentive without being snobbish. The food was creative and delicious. Would come back any time!
We had an absolutely AMAZING evening at August! Cannot wait to go back!

Best dining experience I had in NOLA. Four gras, truffle gnocchi were excellent.
Excellent everything. Atmosphere was elegant and not stuffy at all. The staff was great! Friendly, and professional. The food was outstanding. I highly recommend!
Great ambiance, wonderful service, creative menu. We enjoyed August.
Definitely expected more from the chef. The food was ok and presentation somewhat lacking. I have eaten at many other fine dining restaurants on my New Orleans trip where I enjoyed my meal much more and payed much less. There wasnt enough flavor to make the portion worth what they charge.
Food was incredible. I can recommend the prix fix lunch.
Wonderful food and ambiance. Lovely staff, though too busy.
Fabulous setting, outstanding service, and great food. Would definitely recommend to a friend!!
A very fine dining experience
Had the tasting menu with wine pairing. Exceptional!!
As always completely satisfied! We dined in at around 5:45 on a Sunday night. It was rather quiet which I love when it comes to dining. Nonetheless great food and wonderful service as always! Hot and Sour Crawfish dumplings is now a favorite! Oh and salad of royal shrimp was fantastic too!
Beautiful food, beautiful restaurant! Love August, will return. Impeccable service!
This was our 3rd time dining at August and this time we were disappointed with the service and the food. Even though we had a reservation, the hostess mixed up the number in our party, we had to wait in the doorway and hear the manger telling her how to do her job. The menu options were not creative and my entire group was just ok with their meal. August was not as "tight" as they were in the past.
Fantastic meal from beginning to end. Each course as good or better than the next. Service was impeccable; on the spot but never intrusive. We had multiple courses and drinks. We left feeling we were undercharged for the quality of the food, service and experience we enjoyed. Incredible value along with the fabulous food and experience. Thank you to the August team for a great evening.
Unfortunately, August certainly did not live up to some review ratings. To say the least, the pretentiousness of the staff was not welcoming. The service was less than adequate. The food was not of the quality in taste nor preparation that one would expect for the prices paid. Overall, the dining experience was under quality and overrated.
I have been to many restaurants in New Orleans and August is clearly head and shoulders above the rest. Exquisite atmosphere in main dining room with exposed brick and soft lighting. Service was impeccable. Wonderful meal and appropriate portion sizes. Will definitely be back.
Great service, atmosphere and food. Excerpt for a nice date night!
