The best night of my life

It is always a wonderful thing when you are met with people that are obviously passionate about what they are doing, having a good time..or at least caring enough to do a really good job of faking it!!!. The service at August is first rate.. The evening started,just like life,with a beautiful egg..only this one,filled with luscious Sabayon gets devoured .Crawford the sommelier - ya gotta love it when you learn some... view more

Extraordinary Meal with Excellent Service

As locals and first time visitors we had high expectations based off of both word of mouth comments and online reviews and Restaurant August exceeded our expectations.

Although difficult to get a reservation for two, we had wonderful seating off of the kitchen in a semi-private room that could accommodate around 20 people which was cozy and romantic. I tried the sampling menu with wine paring which is a MUST. I f

Better Service at Olive Garden

Absolutely terrible service. We recently held a group dinner at August and were aghast at the poor service. I would never return to this restaurant.\r
Put into context, we spent approximately $270 per person. Not an inexpensive meal. The food was spectacular, truly wonderful. However, I get better service at my local Olive Garden.\r
We had a prix fixe for the entire table, same menu. (1) The plating w

A wonderful experience

My fiance's family were in town and wanted the ""gourmet"" tour. So we went to August. We were not disappointed at all. The food was inventive and amazing, just amazing. My fiance just eats meat. I am working on that!!! But just about every part of his meal was smile driven. My appetizers and the other parties ware so unusual and great. My main course could have not been better and the service was fabulous. ... view more

Impressive, elegant

This was a beautiful dining experience in New Orleans. We dined here on a busy Saturday night. We had a reservation, and were seated immediately. The entire restaurant is gorgeous- it's worth a trip to the upstairs restrooms just to get look at more of the building. The wait staff was perfect. Timing was perfect: we didn't feel rushed, but also didn't feel like we had to wait for each course. We both had the... view more

As a couple from New York, we have experienced many 5 star restaurants. Our expectations were high for Chef Besh's August and they were definitely not met. The best thing about August is the beautiful space. The atmosphere is perfect for a special dinner out and the room and bar are magnificently charming. The wait staff was pleasant and helpful, and we found the service to be prompt and efficient. The food howev... view more

Horrible Service

The food at Restaurant August was good - tasty courses with interesting ingredients. The service however was HORRIBLE. Our server practically ignored us all night. We had to ask for our glassed to be filled up from the bottle of wine we ordered, twice! Both times we were told it was finished, when it clearly was not. It seemed as if our server just did not want to be there at all. \r
In a city like New Orleans where

Best Restaurant in New Orleans!!

Restaurant August is quite possibly the best fine dining experience in New Orleans. This is one of the few restaurants I have been to in recent years that lives up to its five-star reputation in service, food and ambiance. Requesting a table in the wine room will give you the best seat in the house, with a wonderful view of the beautiful second floor wine racks, and even with a packed restaurant, the acoustics are ... view more

Avoid this restaurant

We made reservations at August for Sat. 11/17 to celebrate our 11th annniversary. We made a reservation for 9:30pm. We arrived on time and were told our table was not ready. We sat at at the tiny bar and proceeded to wait for over 25 mintes for a drink. The bartender was obviously slammed but had a horrible attitude, asking another waitress if she could ""help these people."" It took another 15 minutes to pay the bil... view more

My husband and I dined there this past Saturday night with a group of 10! The food was fabulous! The atmosphere was great! Everything came from the kitchen perfectly served. The staff was great! I got to go back to the kitchen and meet everyone - great treat for me!!! I can't wait to return on my next vacation!
