I LOVE This place. good drinks, beautiful interior, classy customer base, prime location. The only thing that is not AMAZING is the food.
Whenever I'm in Sherman Oaks, Augustine is one of my favorite spots to pop in and have a glass (or bottle) of wine with a friend. The wine list is exceptional and the food is decent. One of my favorite things about this place is that you feel transported to somewhere other than the valley.
Decent food with a fun ambiance. The mid-century feel of the building is great, and service is generally quick. Meals are cheap and on par with most diners.
I like their breakfasts. They host a lot of film industry shoots. The vibe is Kind of like the booth scene in When Harry Met Sally
Love this place. Great for an early morning/late night stop over. Good service, and a beautiful bit of Valley history (and architecture). The bar lounge in back is a great dark place to hunker, as well. Ignore the listed hours. The diner opens at 7am. The bar closes down at 2am.
