August is located in a historic 19th century French-Creole building in New Orleans’ Central Business District. The interior is rich with original architectural details, gleaming hardwood floors, soaring columns, mahogany paneling and antique mirrors. The main dining area caters to the most unique dining experience and is comprised of three breath taking rooms: the elegant main dining room with its signature crystal chandeliers, the two-story wine room and the intimate Gravier room.

It’s the best restaurant experience I’ve ever had! Mark and Fi (sp?) were amazing. Fantastic menu knowledge, service, banter and smiles.

Hands down the best food and service we had during our 5 night stay in New Orleans. In fact some of the best food and service ever.

We visited August for an early seating prior to a concert we were attending at the Fillmore. My wife and I were promptly seated at a great table next to the front window. Started with a very delicious Old Fashion that set the tone for the great meal that followed. The gnocchi appetizer was outstanding with black truffles. We opted for the shrimp and crab ravigote salad for the next course and it did not disappoint. The lacquered duck entree was very creative and quite tasty with a four gras topper that made it that much better. Although we don’t typically order dessert we couldn’t pass up the orange creamsicle. Overall an incredible meal with outstanding service made for a wonderful evening.

The food was delicious and fresh. The building was gorgeous, parking was free and right across the street!
Our waiter, Steven, was attentive but not intrusive and aware of when to bring the courses to allow us to savor the meal without feeling rushed.
Definitely will return and bring friends.

We have dined at August several times and have never been disappointed. Our waiter, Mark, was attentive and never made us feel like we were lacking anything. We did not have the tasting menu but ordered ala cart and everything was excellent.

Restaurant August is an outstanding restaurant when you are looking for a romantic evening. Cuisine that is extraordinary and service to match. We have been to 109 different restaurants since moving to the Big Easy in 2015 and August really stands out. We have gone here twice, both on Valentines Day, and have decided we don't go often enough.

Overall meal and ambiance, etc was good. One meal was way off and really bad. They did replace it and comp, but shouldn't happen at this level of restaurant. Also, attire of certain patrons (ie. hats and gym clothes) at a table near us, in addition to totally inappropriate behavior was also disappointing. My opinion is that August's reputation is better than what was delivered. With that said, I will go back for another try.

Went with my husband. He got the regular tasing menu, i got the vegetable one.
They were both great, but I think the veg one was better.
We were both stuffed after the meal even though we had skipped lunch and didn't drink before dinner.
The wine pairing was well worth it.
Very nice overall

The food was excellent, but very small portions for the price. Also the ambiance was a little stuffy and our waiter came across as having a snobby attitude. Unfortunately this ruined our experience.

Very creative menu and overall great food. The rabbit dish was not very flavorful but the gnocchi was great and the shrimp/pork ravioli was AMAZING!!!!

The oyster dish was also one of the best I’ve ever had. Order it!!!!

One of NOLA’s best! My go to restaurant whenever I am in New Orleans. The food & service are exceptional. Had rabbit appetizer, flounder with crab & shrimp, and a dark chocolate soufflé. Need I say more? Yum!! Can’t wait to return.

We always make reservations for August when returning to New Orleans. The food is always wonderfully creative and the staff is well versed in the menu and service. This visit we were sat by a rather boisterous party so the ambiance was not on par with our previous visits.

This 2 star review is for taste of food and overall value. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff is top notch. Service was excellent but the two seafood entrees we ordered were bland and season free. We are in New Orleans at one of the most romantic and beautiful restaurants and the food was mediocre. If you want a super fancy experience and want to leave hungry then this is the place for you.

Wow, what a great place to come, relax, and dine with my Wife. Restaurant August has great ambience, service and food. We were one of two others but it quickly filled up and everyone there seems to be enjoying themselves. So, if you want a great adult time with your loved one for your special day then include this addition to you itinerary. We recommend the “Degustation Menu” so you don’t have to decide. Bon Appetite.
