We were taken care of like Royalty at August. The food and platings were artistic with spectacular taste, especially the gnocchi with blue crab and shaved black truffle. We loved the cocktails and the generally pleasing attitude of the staff. We highly ecommend August and we will be back!

I received a call from the restaurant 20 minutes before our reservation asking me for my credit card number. Then we n ever received the bill and a waiter asked us to leave because there was a second seating. He told us our bill was charged but they did not have my security code. The hostess told my husband that I had arranged for the bill not to be delivered to the table, which was false. We intended to split the bill with the other couple. It was awkward and uncomfortable.

My husband & I returned to august after our vaccines, the last place we ate in New Orleans before the pandemic. The restaurant is lovely in every way. The food and service is superb. The wine list special and the service is professional but approachable and friendly. The setting is beautiful with old brick, large windows and chandeliers. Highly recommended

Outstanding meal. We really liked the set 4-course format with a few options for each course. The Amuse-bouche was incredible. Service and food were top tier. We'll definitely be back.

The food and service was amazing. My only complaint was I felt like our meal was rushed. Our first course came out as soon as we ordered. The waiters were on top our table waiting for us to finish to take the plate. If I had my fork down too long they came to take the plate and I was just taking my time eating not finished. I think we had 4 courses in less than an hour. I just wanted to enjoy the dinner but instead it was so fast we couldn’t enjoy it.

Excellent food and service. Food a little pricey. Would have preferred if menu was ala carte. Had a set four course menu which was more courses than we typically eat. Maybe that was an option, but waiter never mentioned it. Next time I would be sure to ask.

Once again an excellent experience at August: my server explained the menu well, and I opted to combine several of the appetizers and firsts: foie gras torchon, followed by the beet salad, and then the crab black and blue, which was very rich and quite enough for a main course. Service was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. There was a bit of confusion about the time of my reservation, but that was quickly solved by texting. All great value for the price. Highly recommended.

For the cost of the meal, the food really was NOT that impressive. They also had a party that day apparently so it took forever to get our food. It was not the experience we expected

The food was exquisite. We had individual wine pairing by the glass with each course and every one was magnificent. The sommelier was knowledgeable and friendly and gave very good information about the different wines. The service was excellent. All around spectacular dinner.

From the moment you step into the restaurant, you feel right at home. We went over Thanksgiving and they had a beautiful Christmas tree set up that made us feel warm and cozy. The food at August was the best we had in New Orleans. The Chef is just amazing. Whether you order gnocchi or lobster ravioli starters to scallop dinners to delicious desserts, you will not be disappointed. The playlist in the background was wonderful as was our server, who made it.

I ordered the skirt steak. It was full of hard grissel. I couldn’t finish it. My husband ordered the red snapper which was very bland . His royal red shrimp salad had no taste. Lobster ravioli was like chewing on cardboard. We excited about going to Restaurant August but left very disappointed in our meal.
