We had excellent service with Warren, Mark & Tashia. Every course we had was absolute perfection. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion, or just to treat yourself!

For a place that’s been open for so long, it still continues to delight with every bite! The gnocchi and flounder are superb, but everything else is delicious as well. Bravo!

This was our first visit back to New Orleans since before the pandemic. Our hotel and several other places were struggling to return staffing and services so we were happily surprised that August was just as we remembered. We were greeted and welcomed by the women at the front. Our drinks in the bar were delightful and our meals were delicious! As usual the service was fantastic. Great night.

Mark - our main server did a terrible job! We were neglected for most of the time. I have eaten there several times with my husband and loved it and that’s why I decided to take 3 of my friends there while we were in town on a girls trip. I had talked the restaurant up and unfortunately it failed to impress anybody. Such a shame. Nobody at our table was rude to our server (Mark)so we could not understand why we were not being attended to in a reasonable way. After 15 minutes and several attempts of trying to get Mark’s attention to ask for the wine list for a second bottle of wine for the four of us, he brought the list but never returned to ask us which wine we would like. We left and went back to the Ritz feeling dissatisfied with our restaurant (August) choice! It will be a while before I return and I doubt the other 3 ladies will ever entertain the idea to go back and take their husbands!

From the initial welcome to the goodbye everything in between was on point. The hostess, waiter, Somm, food runners and the bussers all work in perfect harmony to deliver exceptional cuisine. Still the best restaurant in NO in my opinion…!

I went with my wife for our honeymoon. We both agreed that we think it’s the best meal we’ve ever had. We had the 5 course prix faire and every course was unbelievable. There wasn’t a bad bite or cocktail the entire meal. Next time I’m in New Orleans I will absolutely be back, might be back this trip!

The food was outstanding but did not care for the room in the back close to the kitchen. It was very muggy at first then with the AC turned on the vents dripped on the tables.

We ordered the Chef Selection with wine pairing at Restaurant August. I was very simply, the best meal I have ever had. The dishes were cooked to perfection. Every component was beautifully prepared and would have stood out on its own but shined even more as part of the overall dish. I really felt the love on those plates. The wines were paired perfectly with the food, and the somm did a great job describing the wines - not too much information but enough to truly appreciate the glass and its relationship to the food. The service was impeccable. It was truly a beautiful meal in a beautiful place, and a night that will stay with me for a long time to come.
