Our fourth visit to restaurant August. While the food was still good, our experience had a slippage in the service levels we are used to. All four of us were delivered wrong entrées, and the bottle of red wine arrived 20° warmer than proper serving temperature. Certainly easy to make errors, but not for a place with this reputation.

Wonderful ambience, good service although they forgot our side order of fries, tomato caprese salad starter was fantastic, pork chop also although the kale veg on the side had way too much balsamic vinegar, great lemon meringue ice cream pie, nice wine. All in all very good.

This is, without a doubt, one of my most favorite restaurants in the world. I have been three times, had the tasting menu each time, and am always enamored with the food and service. The meals are creative, delicious, and filling. I highly recommend it

Went here as part of Restaurant Week 2019. All around great service and ambience. Wish they had done a better job of explaining that the fish entree was in essence a giant fish stick.

This was our 30th anniversary dinner and it was perfect. The restaurant itself has a fin di ciecle elegance and the food is truly unique and excellent in every way.

The service is warm and welcoming without being obsequious but every need, spoken or unspoken, is met quickly.

It was the type of place you can linger over a meal for hours and the staff never makes you feel rushed.

Restaurant August is one of our favorite restaurants, not just in New Orleans, but anywhere. We never miss it when in town. The food is fantastic, the ambiance is unbeatable, and the people are warm and wonderful. Can’t be beat for a perfect, romantic evening of fine dining. (Facebook Page: Lucky Switzer)

The restaurant was absolutely stunning. The service not so and the food was very usual. The price tag was hefty.

Very disappointed on how the dress code was enforced. We were told dressy casual and made sure our party was dressed accordingly. However people were seated in t-shirts and shorts who looked like they had been walking the city all day long.

Immediately welcoming, beautiful decor. Friendly waitstaff. Enjoyed the degustation menu. Cuisine was throughout and flavors worked well. The progression of the menu was well done.
It took longer than preferred to have our dinner order taken. Some minor miscommunications with beverage orders but were handled quickly and very professionally. Overall, a very nice experience.

We come to NO every few years from TX and always plan on one special night at August. Quality cuisine, great staff, great ambience. Simply elegant, reliable, innovative menu without overwhelming you with too many choices. The chef focuses on a few dishes that are very special! This time we tried chopped salad, hot ravioli appetizer and amazing Flounder Ponchetrain. Our lovely wine was a Willamette Valley whole cluster Pinot Noir, nicely priced.

We have been enjoying August for years and have recommended it time and time again. It’s been 2 months since we have dined and we were very disappointed. First time for our guest. The server was be low par for August. We were told our regular server was not there. Wish them luck getting back on track

Excellent food and service. The lunch tasting was only $29 and it was worth it for all the food you get. For a quiet lunch, make an early reservation at 11am. The drinks were also spot on.

COOLinary menu was a good way to try August. It was simple and elegant interior. Service was polite and professional, not intrusive. Food was very fresh tasting and inventive looking, with great dressings on the salads.

We went there for a birthday dinner and all went very well. The food was good and service was intact. A little more care and being thoughtful would have been better. As indicated during booking, this is a birthday dinner and when asked to put the word on the plate, they didn't even bother to add the name of the birthday person, and not even a candle to blow out. A little careless in the arrangement.

I don't recall ever having a better meal. My husband and I split the Heirloom Tomato Salad and it was outstanding - not your typical Caprese Salad. I got the Swordfish and nearly swooned when I took the first bite. Incredibly delicious! Hubs had the Flounder and just loved it. He then had the chocolate tart for dessert - I had a bite and it was so dark and rich. I had a port after dinner because I prefer that. Everything was fabulous and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend Restaurant August!
