This was really one of the best meals I've ever had. The wine pairing was phenomenal and all the good was so delicious. I loved seeing seasonal items as part of the menu. I can't wait to go back to NOLA just to eat here. And the private dining room upstairs is really cute so always a plus.

Food and presentation is outstanding. August deserves all the accolades. We had lunch here, a nice mix of locals and tourists. Service is excellent.

The drama free report is: Service: Very good. The only tweak is it's a bit awkward with 5 or 6 staff members all lined up in the small front dining room. Feels sort of like the "painting with the eyes that follow you" feeling. Food: Good overall. Mileage varied on the dishes. Both tasty - but mine was barely hot... More

Words can't adequately describe our experience. The food descriptions are "words" you read on other menus - but they don't reflect what you see and get! The "Market Vegetable Chop Salad" was a collage of watermelon, squash, carrot strips, plums, a few sprigs of lettuce, etc., all lightly touched with a lemon vinaigrette. The Gulf snapper "courtbouillon" was a beautiful... More

And one of the best in my life. We went on Friday because we thought A) We could take advantage of the $20.14 prix fixe and B) my husband didn't bring a sports coat and we heard the dress code was strict in the evenings. While the prix fixe looked good, we each wanted to try something on the regular... More

Both the food and service were excellent. The ambiance is a wonderful representation of old New Orleans. Certainly worth the visit.

My husband was surprised with a birthday private dinner! To many food options and items we tried and tasted to list. Everything on our palate was marvelous! So thankful to my friend Penny for this recommendation in New Orleans!

We are huge fans of John Besh, and were in New Orleans for our anniversary, so we decided our special night out would be at August. I really give August 3.5 stars, but since it's not an option the delicious mains bumped it up to a 4. Upon entering the hostess was pretty indifferent and turse. Her greeting was hurried... More

I picked this restaurant based on TA reviews and was not disappointed. I called and attempted to get a reservation but was told that they didn't have any slots available for the time frame i was looking to eat. They indicated that the bar area had full service and didn't require a reservation. When we arrived, we were seated promptly... More

If you are looking for a place to experience the new New Orleans food scene then this is the place. Beautiful dining room and elegance. Food and wine list are wonderful.
