    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.

    Last time I ate at August was over a decade ago and it’s just as good, if not better than it was then! I’m not going to be waiting 10 more years to eat there again, I can tell you that!

    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!!!

    Restaurant August never disappoints. Service sets it apart from other fine restaurants in New Orleans. Sommelier spends time making sure you have the perfect wine with your meal and budget. One of our favorites in New Orleans. Memorable experience.

    Food was exceptional, but service was very poor, and the bathroom was dirtier than a truck stop. It took more than a half hour to get a glass of wine, and service was very poor even though the restaurant was not busy - not even half the tables were occupied. Overall, I wouldn’t return, which is a shame, because I remember the experience being quite lovely in the past. There are too many stellar restaurants in New Orleans to pay a premium for small plates, while delicious, are not distinctive from other food destinations that offer exceptional cuisine AND attentive service with clean amenities beyond the dining room.

    Service was very good. Our table for two put us at a table with beautiful flower arrangement, but blocked our view of the room with the way it was situated. Food was good (steak excellent, duck average), but maybe below what we were expecting. This city has so many excellent restaurants that I would try this one again, only after I had visited a few others.

    Outstanding birthday dinner at August. They do not rest on their well-deserved laurels; the food, drinks, and service continue to be the standard. Our server, Alise, was helpful, friendly, and overall amazing. From the oyster appetizer to the cornmeal chess pie dessert, every dish we ordered was spot on. We live in the NYC metro area, travel extensively, and enjoy dining out. This was the best meal we've had in recent memory! Thank you, August!

    We were looking for upscale Creole/Cajun, and we found it. We ordered the tasting menus , and every dish was well executed and flavorful. There's a good wine by the glass list, which we appreciate, and the service was attentive but not overbearing. Highly recommended.

    We had a wonderful family celebration at August. The food was wonderful. The room is just amazing - we were in the wine room (the wine was truly excellent too). We had some misdelivered dishes, which seems strange given how extremely great the restaurant is, but overall this was much more than just a good meal, and was perfect for our special party.

    On our trip through the South, Restaurant August was hands-down our favorite place to eat. From the understated, very elegant atmosphere, to the wonderful service, and delicious food, this was a dinner to remember. Make sure to order the corn and crab bisque, it's to die for. If you are looking for a special place to spend an extraordinary evening, this is it!
