We came here for our honeymoon and had a wonderful experience! The staff was super friendly and very knowledgeable about the wine pairings. They described every course we had and were very pleased with our meal!

We ordered the Chef Selection with wine pairing at Restaurant August. I was very simply, the best meal I have ever had. The dishes were cooked to perfection. Every component was beautifully prepared and would have stood out on its own but shined even more as part of the overall dish. I really felt the love on those plates. The wines were paired perfectly with the food, and the somm did a great job describing the wines - not too much information but enough to truly appreciate the glass and its relationship to the food. The service was impeccable. It was truly a beautiful meal in a beautiful place, and a night that will stay with me for a long time to come.

The food was amazing and all of the servers worked as a team to make sure you were never wanting anything. We came here for our anniversary dinner during our vacation and are so happy we chose August. We decided to order a la carte instead of the fixed 5 course menu so that we could try lots of different things- everything was excellent and cooked perfectly. Thank you to the whole team at August for an amazing experience!

Service was impeccable. Wish I could say the same about the food. It was fine. But I have had better meals in this city. I thought August was going to knock it out of the park. But it was just nice. Weird stop start non sentences intentional to set the mood of the food. Again, service was on point! The entire team was great.

Second time to August, and we were blown away. We did the tasting menu and wine pairings. I cannot describe the experience any better than "This was the best meal any of us has ever had in the USA."

We have been here twice. The first time was beyond wonderful. The second time we had to wait a really long time for the entree. The restaurant was much busier the second visit - maybe some growing pains post pandemic as NOLA reopens.

Traveling to New Orleans for a river cruise up the Mississippi, and we spent several days here ahead of the cruise. I made reservations 1 week ahead and I got the Sunday, 5:30 pm, time requested. Dress code was Business Casual and that meant men did not need to wear a jacket or tie. My husband was comfortably in style wearing a pressed button down shirt and tan slacks. We both were wearing sneakers from all the long walks but that didn’t seem to be a problem. We had 3 very attentive waiters and timing was perfect. We didn’t feel rushed at all, as soon as we both had finished a course the next course appeared. We decided to have the 5 course chef’s tasting menu, $110 each. I f we had ordered starters,entree’s and desert it probably would have ended up being as much. This way we enjoyed smaller portions but different tastes. The total bill was $360 including 4 drinks, tax and tip. If you go, budget for it and be prepared for the cost but we are happy we went and we would go again.

Food good but soft shell crab favor diminished by overpowering sauce. Duck was excellent. The sommelier was very helpful on deciding on the perfect Pinot Noir for the duck. Wait staff were attentive and timely.

Wear a tie or at least a coat if you’re a man. Females, wear a dress and heels. It’s a classy $500 date night here. Wine pairing and chef’s menu is the way to go.
