Great food, fun service
Really a wonderful restaurant! Food and service were both first rate! Tasting menu was really good and you could add whatever you wanted to to it.
Food, service and ambiance were all great. Also, it was so nice to be able to have a conversation without the noise level being overwhelming.
It was by far our favorite dining experience in NOLA, including our visit to Commander's Palace. We own a Cajan Creole restaurant in NY and we came down for inspiration and ideas and August was oir favorite. Our waiter, Chris was outstanding . We are still talking about the food. We will keep coming back
Most fantastic meal we’ve ever had!
I was looking for a nice place to celebrate birthdays and I remembered going to August about ten years ago and thinking it was a special restaurant with a wonderful ambiance. We must have been in the back room before because The front room where we sat was overly lit and big - not intimate dining at all. We were served cocktails and wine ( not chilled properly) and we sat there for an hour with no bread - just kept refilling our wine glasses. I finally said we needed to order and please bring bread. My shrimp salad was good but unfortunately was not fresh. My husband’s bisque was ok but not served hot. My husband who never complains about his food said his duck was too rare and not good. My flounder was fair. I think the restaurant has gotten overly pretentious and caters only to tourists - a real shame —I hate to think that unsuspecting tourists will eat there and spend exorbitant amounts of money and think that’s representative of New Orleans. John Besh, I’m very disappointed in you. This restaurant either shouldn’t have your name associated with it or you need to give it more attention.
Outstanding food and service! Robert was our captain did a fantastic job!
It was wonderful!!
Excellent!! Food and wait staff made for most enjoyable evening!!!
Visiting from out of town. Friend recommended August. Beautiful restaurant Classy place. Very pleasant atmosphere. Great wine list by the glass and bottle. Delightful chef’s starter in an eggshell. Had the shrimp salad. I had the scallops and husband had the flounder. Both were fabulous!! Chris our water gave us excellent service. He recommended the dreamcicle with moscato. It was a divine way to end our wonderful meal. I look forward to returning.
This as our first visit to Restaurant August, received a gift card from a dear friend. First , the waiter and bus service is incredible, fast but not so that you feel being rushed. They are super knowledgeable, they know a lot about the food choices preparation, ingredients, etc. They are very engaging and personable. The food is elegantly prepared, but not pretentious, very tasty and some are quite remarkable. Only one small negative comment, one of the reductions was a bit on the burnt side, bitter tasting. However, this was only a minor distraction, and over all, each dish was well balanced with a good pairing with the sides. This was a special event for us (anniversary) and let me say that it is well worth going there for a special occasion, it is sure to impress. I now wish we has chosen from the Degustation selection, I wish I had been able to taste more of the chef's creation with the wine parings. Our intention is to definitely go back for this. The treats before and after the meal from the chef were awesome and a nice surprise. I have never tasted a chocolate truffle nor a praline so delicious, small bits of the most delicious sweets I have ever eaten. We ordered a dessert, and the chef wrote a cute "Happy Anniversary" message with chocolate on the dish, very nice. As you can see we very much enjoyed the meal. be attentive to the address as the exterior lighting has a lot to be desired, easy to miss at night, also the lighting in the restaurant is very low, so if you are like me and have night vision issues, you will need an aid to read the menu. The bathroom is on the second floor, interesting set up, old New Orleans architecture, so a bit awkward for old people like us. So bottom line, with a very few small criticisms, I would rate this five stars all around.
Excellent lunch, sorry I haven’t tried this restaurant sooner! Will be back for dinner.
Amazing! One of our favorites in NOLA.
Service was terrible. It took so long just to get drinks. We were there for two hours and only got one round of drinks with our meal because after we ordered, the waiter never came back. The food was up to par, though.
Beautiful setting. Thoroughly enjoyed my dish. Others
Liked but not loved.
Ben was an outstanding host and wait staff. Excellent food; snapper was amazing. Cocktails fresh and light. Lamb was was excellent.
The service and quality of the food was excellent. We have traveled al over the world, eating in some of the top restaurants and I consider Restaurant August one of them. This is one of my favorite meals of all time! Thank you!
Such a wonderful restaurant!! Always top notch!!
Perfection! Zelenograd was magical as were all the other servers.. our favorite restaurant in NOLA
An early birthday celebration for me. We had an add - on person join us and August staff was very accommodating to seat us together. I absolutely love the restaurant and our food was just AMAZING! The gnocchi tasted like I was eating a light “ cloud”! It was not heavy, it was light and just delicious! I grave it right now! It was a beautiful evening with my family , a well- appointed staff, wonderful food, and I will come back to August every chance I get!
Outstanding unique cuisine. Wonderful presentation. Lovely evening.
Exquisite meal and phenomenal service, definitely a must visit!
Excellent menu and service
My fave in NOLA. Never miss a chance to dine at August. Exquisite dining.
It was amazing! Service, drinks, and food.
August never disappoints. Inventive dishes that satisfy has been their hallmark. We always visit when we are in NOLA.
A unique dining experience that appeals to anyone who wants to be transported through carefully crafted dishes that make all your senses sing
Incredible food. Dedicated and very knowledgeable staff. Great and unforgettable foodie experience. Of course, only in New Orleans
I love everything about August. The food is stellar, but the room and service are great too. From the amuse bouche of garlic mushroom egg custard to the salads, crab gnocchi, trout, duck and desserts—the dining is at the highest level but without pretension. Broad wine selection. It’s one of my all time favorite places.
Best meal I’ve had in a very long time.
I surprised myself and ordered the veggie tasting with wine pairing and had no regrets!! It was exceptional, we all were thrilled with our meals and will definitely return!
Always blown away by August. Get the degustation and farmers market menu with wine pairings, you will love it.
What a great experience. Took my wife here for her birthday. Great choice! The food was great and the staff was very attentive but not overbearing. A visit by chef Dover made the lunch perfect. Looking forward to our next visit!
Great food. Great atmosphere. A true New Orleans experience.
This is our favorite restaurant in New Orleans. The food and service are always outstanding. We had Waygu steak and flounder for main courses. Both were excellent. We asked for wine pairings with each course, and the Sommelier didn’t disappoint.
