Great space. Surprising good food. Casual, yet elegant. Try the stacked crab and avocado for a starter. Yum. Perfectly cooked halibut with a well made risotto. I have two issues. First, the over eager wait staff cleared plates too quickly. Let everyone finish before grabbing the empty plates. It makes everyone else feel rushed. Particularly true when you don't have... More

I was not a sushi person until I sat down at the Sushi bar and had a wonderful lesson by the folks at August E's. Beautiful restaurant - lovely food - the staff is delightful!

Second time here. Unique adventurous and fun. Bring your wallet and have something exotic they have water buffalo ,axis deer, Black buck, wild boar and much more. We had the quail matched up with beets and squash. Perfect with a good red wine and they have a very comprehensive list. A must if in area

Nice place to have drinks for any occasion. Have yet to have dinner as most of the time we have too many guests for dinner. Mostly locals but tourists very welcome.

I think this restaurant could use some focus. I don't know what they are trying to be. Fine dining? Wild game? Asian fusion? IDK? seriously. And the wine selection? must have been several hundred and the waitress said they just redid it? She could not give us a recommendation. Our food was above average, but service was below par. I...

August E's was recommended to us by the owner of Alexander Vineyards. After some great wine-tasting, we went to August E's for dinner. It was "Thai Tuesday," and we decided to go with Thai food for the evening (there were many other choices available). The hostess was very friendly when we booked over the phone, and did not disappoint when... More

Went for dinner at about 7:30. They weren't full but a comfortable number of patrons. The service was very slow. We waited and waited Very slow! sushi took forever and our meal of steak and fish took even longer. It could have been warmer but the time to be served was probably a waiting game on a shelf for the... More

Wonderful dinner on New Years Eve. We enjoyed the grilled red snapper with risotto and sirloin kobe steak. Delicious crème brulee and a Washington wine and great service.
