    Lovely restaurant and great service. Food was very good but for the price I expected something more memorable. We had the gnocchi "black and blue", white asparagus & crawfish tart, NOLA barbeque escargot, and red snapper Pontchartrain. The amuse-bouche and escargot were probably the highlights. Also, August Carajillo after the meal was very good. The rest was tasty and well prepared but nothing special. The cork somewhat disintegrated upon extraction so had some bits of cork in the wine and the second espresso we ordered didn’t arrive but we were charged. Should have said something but the service was so good I just brushed it off.

    This was our first August experience & we LOVED everything about it. From the White Asparagus & Crawfish Tart to the Striped Bass with Blackened Oysters Topping to the White Burgundy Wine selection by the glass. Wait staff is AWESOME & we could not have been more pleased - all 5 of us felt the same about our choices!!!

    First time back in over 20 years and Restaurant August didn't disappoint!! This is my favorite spot in NOLA, the vibe, the food, the service are all exquisite and such a welcome escape from the madness of the French Quarter. Food in New Orleans is good but tends to be heavy and August is such a lovely departure from that with smaller, lighter portions with amazing flavors that each look like a work of art! You simply must go if you are in town!!

    Of all the amazing restaurant options in New Orleans — a city that has some of my favorite places I’ve eaten in over the last 10 years — I really regret I wasted the time and money to come here (and invited our friends to come with). The service was some of the worst I’ve had in any restaurant, but for the price of a 5-star restaurant. It all started well enough: we were greeted, got seated, our server introduced himself, we ordered cocktails, and they brought us some bread. Fast forward us asking for the wine menu, never getting it, asking someone else, finally getting it halfway through our apps, asking for a sommelier, finally being able to order a bottle of champagne, having a random server take glasses away from 2 people at our table while we had more champagne chilling somewhere, bringing them back, another random server dumping the last of the champagne to fill up one person’s glass to the top while 2 of ours were empty, no one asking if we wanted anything else to drink, etc. We had to ask for an extra piece of bread 3 times before someone brought it, and then someone took my friend’s plate with bread still on it right out from under her nose. No one asked how our entrees were. No one checked on us for most of the meal. I’m not even sure the server actually asked the chef about being able to order items off the chef’s tasting menu since he forgot to let me know his answer until I asked again. It was almost laughable… if appetizers weren’t $25-30, mains $50+, cocktails nearly $20, a glass of champagne $30, etc. We honestly should have known, since my friend came here last time and spent $1k to have a similar experience. What a joke.

    Excellent experience. One of the best tasting menus I have had (and we do this a lot). well paced, good progression, excellent flavors. And the wine pairing was a good value. Wonderful evening.

    This is a very high-quality dining experience. You have the option of a price fixe multiple course option including wine pairings or à la cart. The restaurant is lovely and very quiet. The service and staff are a large part of this rating. This is a special restaurant that you may want to take part in for a special meal, or to celebrate. The attention to detail, from the service to the carefully prepared dishes is one that we won’t forget. This is as good as a fine dining experience you can have in New Orleans. We highly recommend this for that special meal. The wine and cocktail list is also excellent.

    During our 6 day stay in New Orleans with wonderful fine dining experiences, August was my husband’s and my favorite. The presentation, the flavors, the creativity, the service, the setting, the entire experience—all make August our absolute favorite.
