We had an incredible Anniversary dinner here. Everyone was amazing. And the food was delectable!
Wonderful service as well as food. Mark and Alise (among others) made it special.I must give Erin a special shout out for her wine pairings. She is an extremely knowledgeable Sommelier and her selections made the evening. We will definitely be back.
Everything we had here was off the charts!
We had a wonderful dining experience. The food was amazing and the service was incredible!
My husband took me here to celebrate my birthday. After being seated the waitress came and introduced herself and said we’d be served by her and another gentleman. After that however, we were left there a very long time before anyone came to see if we’d like a drink or anything. The restaurant was freezing which also didn’t make me feel very comfortable even though I had a wrap over my dress. My husband finally gave me his jacket to wear! After this initial feeling of being ignored things improved greatly so I’ll put it down to them being very busy at that time! The amuse bouche was one of the best we’ve ever had. The food here was outstanding. Every dish was spectacular. The gnocchi was fantastic. The whipped chocolate ganache was divine. We like to have long, slow meals and this was one of those. However, I do feel that an initial welcome with a drinks menu and water should not take so long where you begin to wonder if they remember you’re there. I thought there would be a cozier ambience and maybe that’s the case with their inner room.
We always make Restaurant August the final place to have dinner before returning home. Consistently a top notch experience. Can't wait to return!
We each did the chef's selection with additional sommelier wine pairings. Erin White was incredibly interactive and explained each different wine to us, along with how they paired with each incredible dish!
Food is complex without being precious and among the finest I have had in NO; service and ambiance are excellent. Highly recommended but very expensive.
The food was absolutely amazing and the service was exceptional. Will 100% be back!
Incredible service and delicious food what more do you need; our favorite restaurant in Nola!
Made reservations for our 50th anniversary, flew from Dallas thinking it was a special occasion Restaurant. Wrong,,, perfectly ordinary overpriced dinner. Table of 4 people spend $500.00 dollars. Only 2 drinks ordered since my husband and I don’t drink. Ordered the steak without seafood since I am allergic to shellfish, came with seafood. Pretty awful mistake. Nothing for our anniversary except Happy anniversary written on our plate. Everything was over salted. So looking forward to this special occasion restaurant, so disappointed. Many good restaurants in New Orleans, best to choose another.
The best restaurant in the City of New Orleans!!!!!!!!!!!!
My meal needed to be cooked again as the meat was rare not med-rare.
The recook was done promptly and I received a complementary cocktail while waiting.
Mark and Elise (sp) were very attentive to us. The ambiance was very nice.
Our first-time experience at August was truly fantastic. Mark tended to our table and was very accommodating to our questions and tasting preferences. For drinks, we ordered the yuzu cocktail and their spin on an old-fashioned, both excellent. We did the tasting menu and it was overall a pleasant experience. We were not the greatest fan of the first course, the cauliflower soup, but it should be a delicious dish for those enjoying creamy and buttery flavors. Our second course was the truffle gnocchi which was absolutely divine. Following, the third and fourth courses were the pompano and strip steak, both very tasty dishes. Our final course was the chocolate ganache which was a perfect ending to the meal. The restaurant also prepared in advance for my fiancee's birthday and provided a refreshing carrot-meyer lemon sorbet. Lastly, given with the check was a small, chocolate with sea salt. This was a fantastic evening and I highly, highly recommend dining at August.
Service and ambience excellent. The pralines at the end were a nice touch.
Everything was good. Always great service at R August. all our food was really good... a little something was missing - not as Great as our last trip. Will return due to great meals in the past!
Booked a few weeks in advance as part of a NOLA trip. The food was beautifully created and presented; the service was top notch. The prices were a bit high, but that is not a reflection on the quality of the food. Would go again.
We had an anniversary dinner at August, dining for the first time there and we absolutely loved it. The service from the moment you enter the door to when you leave are so kind and attentive. The food was phenomenal - every course we had was so unique, flavorful and beautifully displayed. Loved the amuse bouche of the evening an egg dish that tasted like heavenly pillows.
One of the finest restaurants in the world. The dining and wine experience is as good as you will find in the U.S. Terrific menu, with innovative and delicious dishes. Extremely knowledgeable, personable, and attentive servers. A unique wine list with reasonable prices, and a sommelier who knows her wines, their terrior, their makers, and the best pairings. Sublime.
The food was superb, service excellent. Wonderful atmosphere
Amazing experience! We will definitely be back.
Atmosphere = amazing! Love the NOLA hum of others’ conversations that makes our conversation private.
Food = absolutely incredible! Melt in your mouth, delicious. We had the crispy fried oysters as an appetizer and they were light and crispy and melted in your mouth after the light crunch- perfection.
Service = outstanding! No other words for this- just awesome service.
Our new favorite place.
Great ambience, quiet and upscale.
Away from Bourbon Street noise but close enough to still be enjoyed if you want.
Food is meticulously prepared. Service is exceptional.
I had Duck breast with foie gras. Perfectly prepared. My partner had red snapper over shrimp and crab in a wonderful sauce. Again, perfectly prepared. We both had two different salads that were absolutely fresh and well prepared and then we finished with their clementine panna cotta. Very delicious and beautifully presented with a clementine gelee and a buckwheat tuile.
It was absolutely a memorable meal.
Amazing food and outstanding service!
August is in the first rank of dining in NOLA.The food was absolutely at the level described in other positive reviews, interesting concepts that were flawlessly executed.The service was excellent. The sommelier was extremely helpful in pairing the dishes with selections from their wines by the glass menu.The room is very nice but not as opulent as mentioned in other reviews.
Nothing shot of an incredible experience.
We both got the 5 course chefs special and that is 100% the way to go. Will be back when we return to NOLA.
The food was delicious, as good as you could find anywhere. It was well served and beautifully presented.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars for value is because it is as expensive as any restaurant in the city and more than most of our fine restaurants. I think that reflects the number of out of towners that dine here, people used to paying more expensive prices in other metropolitan areas. But I'll go back any time.
The food and service was Fantastic !!
The room was too cold for us and the large table next to us was too loud, too drunk.
Wonderful food and atmosphere. Great place to go and “experience” a meal. The overall quality is top notch.
Phenomenal service and food!
Restaurant August is an amazing experience. The service and culinary experience are second to none. Whenever we’re in New Orleans, we have the tasting menu.
Upscale dining at it's best. Old restored building added to the experience. Staff attentive but out of the way. Great experience. Will definitely return.
I have eaten here at least a dozen times over the years, and it never fails to disappoint. Without a doubt, it offers the finest dining experience that NOLA has to offer The combination of food, service, ambiance, etc is second to none.
Large group of friends meeting in N.O. Great evening
of fun, friendship and fabulous food! Thank you August for a great night!
The food and service were outstanding. Of particular note was the restaurant’s ability to accommodate a gluten sensitivity without making it seem an inconvenience and certainly without compromising the experience or taste of the meal. Bravo!
Best restaurant in New Orleans!! The food was fabulous and the presentation is great too.
Fine dining at its best. Creative and tantalizing dishes that proved absolutely delicious all in an upscale, elegant atmosphere. We will visit again without hesitation on our next trip to the city.
