Very overpriced for the quantity and quality of food. My advice is to go somewhere else: plates are extremely small the service is not appropriate for the price level and the restaurant interior is just average
The food is delicious. Ordered the beet salad, fried oysters, the venison, the flounder and the pineapple soufflé. Everything was so perfectly prepared and tasted incredibly good. The staff is very friendly.
Overall, it was a good meal. Unfortunately a few of the courses were overly salty. Everything would have been excellent if not for the amount of salt on the foie gras and the pasta course.
Food was amazing, had the scallops and was not disappointed
this was one of the best meals my wife and I have ever had in all respects:food, service and setting. I highly recommend it.
One of the two or three best in NOLA
Expensive but absolutely worth it
We were pleasantly surprised to find Restaurant August so perfect. We sat at the wine room and it was quiet and it made a perfect setting to enjoy our wine and our food. Everything that we ordered was superb and beautiful presented. The server was knowledgeable and explained the ingredients in all of the dishes. We will highly recommend this as one of the best New Orleans has to offer.
My wife and I celebrated Valentine's Day at August and one word describes the experience - OUTSTANDING !! Every item on the menu was tempting. However, my duck breast was the best I've ever had. And although the portion seems to be average sized when served - I was stuffed upon finishing it. My wife had the diver scallops (3) and again was stuffed upon finishing it and the sides. The best thing about the restaurant is the service. CLASSIC NEW ORLEANS ! A wine or water glass was kept filled at always the appropriate time. Anything you needed seemed to be anticipated by the staff. Plus, everyone was very knowledgeable. The sommelier was great. We had a flight of Madeira and were not disappointed since it was from a special Portuguese producer from which this vintage is no longer available. A large amount of it was purchased by Restaurant August and won't last forever. Although it was an expensive dinner, it was well worth it. Don't hesitate to celebrate special occasions here. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED !!
Always a treat to dine at August. Their take on New Orleans dishes like the shrimp “etouffe” that was done with Asian type dumplings is always wonderful. Service is impeccable and the food quality and presentation is top notch.
A very classy joint! Happened to be on a Mardi Gras parade route which was good for people watching.
Impeccable service and creative cuisine, though serving sizes were small
August was by far one of the best meals my fiancé and I have had. The meal, the wine, the ambiance, the staff... it was truly an incredible experience. They went to great lengths to ensure that each portion of the meal was executed perfectly. We had the degustation menu with sommelier pairings and it could not have been better. We will be coming back again.
We had a terrific meal at August. The food, service and ambience were top notch.
The Shrimp Tagliolini and the Red Shrimp Ravigote starters were exceptional . Delicate flavors
and presentation. The entrees , Almondine Scallops and the Wagyu Ribeye exceeded our expectations. And, our Pear and Riesling Sorbet was a perfect ending. Great service by Lawson and Lisa! We wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful restaurant.
Great service and food excelled.
One of the few restaurants I'd booked through Open Table that I was able to keep during the busy Mardi Gras season-so glad I did. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Food was top notch along with impeccable service- friendly without being stuffy. The building is gorgeous New Orleans. We began our our meal with cocktails-a beet cocktail for me, an old-fashion for him, followed by Foie Gras Three ways. I had the flounder with crab topped with a smooth, velvet Bearnaise sauce and my husband had the Duck.....it was to die for! We shared a bottle of delightful Proseco to top of our anniversary occasion. I would enjoy anything here. August is worth the time and money to celebrate an anniversary OR just to meet with friends in New Orleans. Hope to enjoy again soon.
During Mardi Gras it is a great location. Just feel it is over priced and menu too eclectic. Feel it should have their take on some items most can eat.
This is my first time ever leaving a negative response on Open Table. Our experience with the woman sommelier, who was so very incredibly rude to us, made the whole evening miserable. I would like to note that all of the other wait staff especially our waitress was attentive and the service was wonderful for our table.
Food and service were outstanding. Beautiful setting. The gave my wife a special treat for her birthday. We would get back.
Probably a bad time year to go for noise, Thursday before Mardi Gras and while the food was good was good and the service excellent the menu was just appealing as on other visits.
The host Joby was absolutely pleasant and really set the mood for our dining experience. From when we first walked into the establishment to ordering our dinner, everything was impeccable.
August had been our favorite restaurant in NOLA for the last few years. We were sadly disappointed in our meal on Thursday. The Maitre' D informed us multiple times we were under a time constraint of and that he needed the table by a certain time. 3 of our 4 appetizers were very nice the chopped salad and the fried oysters, my wife had the Fois Gras 3 ways was sent it back. 3 of the 4 Entrees were poor. One steak we sent back for over cooking and the next steak was under cooked. My duck was no good, poor flavor and bland. The pork dish was good. My wife ate about 1/3 of hers as it was over cooked as well. Wine list is good, and Erin the Somm is wonderful. However we will now look for a new favorite.
