An outstanding menu served by an attentive and professional staff. There were so many delightful courses among the starters that we never even left the page! The gnocchi w/truffles was the star of the dinner, followed by an extraordinary torchon de fois gras. The team serving us did a great job of pacing the courses and matching the wine. An excellent evening!

August is in the top rank of restaurants in New Orleans. The food was excellent, although not exceptional. The service, including the sommelier, were faultless. The ambiance is very comfortable, although the noise level was difficult at times.

Some of the dishes were great (foie gras appetizer, the duck, except for the heavy side) , but dessert (poached pears), was a let down and a bad way to end the night.
Service was discrete. Not as inviting as at other NOLA restaurants.
The place decor is the highlight of the restaurant. Not many places like this left.

Still and always the best restaurant in New Orleans. Incredible food, impeccable service, and a wonderful sommelier who always hits the finishing notes. From the amuse bouche to the lagniappe, every meal is exceptional.

Restaurant location was easy to find. Service was excellent, staff were super friendly and customer oriented. Fun cocktails and a solid bourbon selection. Restaurant is large and spread out over numerous areas so the noise level was moderate. Great wine list serving many different tastes and budgets. For appetizers we had the foie gras which was very nice and had good flavor, and the gnocchi "black and blue" with black truffles and local jumbo lump blue crab. Could have used a bit more crab for the price. Portion size was small but just what we were looking for this night. For entrees we had the roasted prime strip steak with hot buttered crab, pommes puree, spinach madeline and bordelaise sauce. Steak was very good, but expected a slightly better cut of meat. Presentation was fantastic. Overall a great experience, make sure and add this one to your list.

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.

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.

This has been my favorite restaurant in New Orleans for many years and once again it did not disappoint. We did the 5 course tasting menu. With each course, the staff explained how the dish was prepared. We had a fabulous and educational dining experience with superb service.
