    We are from Mississippi, 1.5 hours away. We've been eating at August since around 2007-ish. Our expectations have always been exceeded. It is our favorite fine dining restaurant in New Orleans. The combinations are just surprising and delicious. It is a learned skill and an art that can't be taught.

    An excellent meal! High quality ingredients prepared in imaginative and very tasty ways. The gnocchi starter is memorable. I remember how much I enjoyed it several years ago, and it did not disappoint this time. The Redfish Pontchartrain was unique and very good. Presentation is a high point at August. The different courses were visually appealing. Service was excellent. The staff and chef went out of their way to adjust dishes to meet the needs of one at our table with a shellfish allergy. Restaurant August is high quality, fine dining in New Orleans, a cut above most others in the city, and that is saying something! Highly recommended for any special occasion, an intimate dinner date, or important business meal.

    10/10 experience and food art! 1️⃣Amouse-bouche Delicious creamy mouse, garlicky clouds. 2️⃣Yellowtail Tiradito For me it’s a play on ceviche. Paired with the wine it’s a heavey sweet sour extravaganza. 3️⃣Burrata Stuffed Squash Blossoms Lightly fried and perfectly filled. These squash blossoms are to die for. 4️⃣Ballotine Rabbit Rich and flavorful. The sauce is amazing and the peppery wine marries perfectly with the rabbit meat. Amazing! 5️⃣Veal Tenderloin Sweet, delicate, and impressive. For a non mushroom lover this dish was a pleasent surprise. 6️⃣Blueberry ‘Shortcake’ Perfectly sweet and savory this dish is an explosion in your mouth. Paired with the most delicious wine I’ve ever had (I am a sweet tooth). This was a perfect ending to a perfect meal.

    We had the absolute best experience at August. The staff was impeccable the food was incredible and a couple got engaged right next to us. As if the restaurant isn’t romantic enough on its on. It is my favorite place to eat at, when in New Orleans. Can’t thank everyone enough. Especially the woman walking around ensuring everyone was having a great time. I’m not sure her position but she checked on us, made sure we had drinks on the way and even gave us a chocolate mousse dessert (probably not describing it properly) 10/10 recommend August. You guys knocked it out of the park.

    We flew in for the night for a special occasion. The last time I ate at August was 10 years ago and it certainly left an impression. After being seated at the perfect table, our waiter welcomed us and wished Pauldine a happy birthday. It just got better and better with the perfect meal and service that made us so happy. What most impressed us with the entire staff was constantly checking on us but never interrupted while we were in conversation. We have been fortunate enough to dine in many Michelin star restaurants throughout the world, and honestly August ranks high among any of them.

    Our experience at August was wonderful. Chef Cory Thomas is so very talented! I am not a very adventurous eater but last night I set my mind on being adventurous! The fried squash blossoms were divine as was the red rock shrimp salad. The Bouche Amuse (tiny little appetizer) so tasty! My entree was the veal tenderloin and my husband had snapper ponchartrain. OMG. It was all superb!!! Everyone should make a reservation and experience August!!!
