Everything was perfect!
Fantastic experience. Veal chop was sous vide and grilled and presented above medium rare as ordered. A little chewy. Lamb sirloin fantastic. Pasta course amazing. Service impeccable. Shrimp remoulade great/foie gras was delicious. Memorable night.
Service is always 100%. Food was excellent. Perfect place for a romantic date night.
August used to be one of our favorite restaurants for special occasions. Unfortunately, the present four course prix fixe menu is too much - too expensive and too much food. The first two courses were delicious but rich enough to make a meal. My main course, red snapper, was overcooked and mushy in texture. Another diner’s soft shell crab was good, but no better than fried crab at a beach shack. Doberge cake was uninteresting but we ate a bite or two with the coffee. I left the snapper- not worth bringing home. Won’t be back until the a la carte menu returns.
Restaurant August is one of our favorite restaurants and we are so glad they are open. Understandably the menu is not as extensive as in pre COVID days but its still has enough choices. Food and service are always top notch and its such a nice place to enjoy fine dining. They take COVID restrictions and operations seriously so we feel comfortable going there. Bottom line is August is still a gem to be enjoyed
The food is so amazing. I cannot criticize anything about the taste. My veal chop was unsatisfactory but everything else was over the top. The price is a bit steep but I understand why they're having to charge what they charge right now.
Perfection. Absolute perfection in every way.
Birthday brunch. Wonderful food, excellent service, beautiful dining room. My favorite restaurant.
Everything was wonderful as usual. Great food and service.
We love this restaurant! The food and service is always wonderful. Alexis was amazing!
excellent food with a 4 course prix fix menu but bring your black card. The meal is worth it as it was delicious and generous portions but be prepared for the sticker shock when the bill comes. The gnocchi is amazing and so was the veal chop. The desserts were incredible too (I recommend the blueberry brown butter tart). Take a date to impress or the wife for an anniversary dinner she wont forget.
Food and service was outstanding. Quite pricey but for a special occasion it was a great experience.
Very disappointing. I have eaten at August three previous times and this was clearly a different and disturbing visit. Service was awful-no one poured wine after the initial pour, plates remained on the table for a long time, and courses were service in a rushed and sterile manner. The gnocchi was broken and salty (I have had this dish twice before, so I know what it should be. The breading on the sot shell crab was very heavy and the same as what was on the oyster appetizer--neither of which were good. The veal chop was excellent, but it should have been for the price, although it was medium well, not medium as ordered. At more than $150/person, exclusive of wine, I was very disappointed. Sure, it's a pandemic and the restaurant by their own admission was at 1/2 of the staff, but I did not see 1/2 the price. Given the fact that this was a "big event" for me, and our first dining-out experience since March, my wife and I were crushed....too bad.
The food was very good,the duck was cooked perfect.
The food here was fantastic and the service was superb. We ate the veal chop and lamb. Can’t say which was better because both were the best we ever had before. Every course danced on our tongues. We found our new “favorite” restaurant in New Orleans.
Perfect all around. Great food, excellent service and wonderful ambience.
This is a beautiful restaurant in the CBD. We had a wonderful team of servers. Our cocktails were excellent. We did the four course menu, which in retrospect was probably too much. There were no “lighter” options for any course and the portions were not small. I found each dish to be a bit too rich and touch over salted. The dessert (blueberry crumble) was excellent. I would like to go back and order à la carte.
We celebrated the opportunity to dine out again (safely) at one of our city's finest restaurants. All eight dishes included in our two prie fixe meals were spectacular, evidencing both great sourcing of ingredients and genius in the kitchen. Such enjoyment does not come cheap. But everything from the first cocktail to the last sip of coffee was done to perfection.
Start to finish, one of the very best meals I’ve had in New Orleans. Attentive staff, wonderfully inventive food, and a thoughtful wine list and pairings.
Erin was so helpful! Thank you for making my boyfriends birthday memorable
We had a fantastic meal and a fantastic time. We are already discussing when we want to go back.
This is a great restaurant! Service was thoughtful and gracious and the food was delicious! Portions were more than generous - we couldn’t finish our last course. We will definitely be back!
Living in New Orleans we are have lots of great places to dine but Restaurant August is our favorite place. Everything is first class from the cocktails, to the food to the service. Menu is not as extensive as in "normal" times but still has some great choices. This was our second visit since they reopened and we are so glad they are open.
This was one of the best dinners I have ever had in terms of food, service, and ambiance. The tables were filled with locals. John Besh was in the kitchen. The waitstaff was attentive, but followed COVID-19 protocols. I definitely will be back there soon.
Always appreciate Sommelier Erin White who’s one of the most personable wine experts around.
The experience was the ultimate in fine dining. Service was outstanding and the complimentary bread, appetizers, and desserts were a treat. The gnocchi black and blue was incredible. If it wouldn't have been frowned upon, I would've licked the plate. As for our entree, the grilled veal chop was underwhelming with it being under seasoned and a bit tough. The hot buttered crab, sweet pea, & summer squash risotto with which was smothered, however, made it so much more palatable. We'll definitely give them another visit!
Dining of the highest caliber
As always, food was executed to perfection. Service was the right pace. Three course menu for restricted capacity has all the favorites plus something for anyone’s palate. Get out and go see them.
Service was good. Atmosphere nice. The snapper dish we got was not that special. Better places for the price to eat in Nola.
Everything was great!!! Wonderful service and food!
Our visit to August wasn’t just an excellent meal, it was a complete experience. 10/10 will return.
Dining done right
Great food. Great service. Mark is great !
This is our only must-stop restaurant in New Orleans!
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
