Like the previous reviewer, I too ordered the beef special and my Husband ordered the goat. It was not bad, but it was not a meal to remember either. The dessert however, (banana pudding) was the best dessert we tasted on our trip. Ask to sit in the main dining room, as it has better ambiance. The service was good.... More

This was the forth big name chef restaurant we visited this week. It was a big disappointment. We were sat at a table at the entrance to the dinning room. Every time the front door opened there was a whoosh of air on my back. And there was an almost constant parade of staff and customers passing by the table.... More

Restaurant August is one of my favorite places in the city and my go to when celebrating something. It is upscale and the food never disappoints. Chef Kelly Fields makes amazing pastries, so you have to get dessert! It's always an amazing meal. You won't be disappointed!

Sorry, Chef Besh. We ate at 3 places in New Orleans that were far superior in both comfort and quality. We were say 20 minutes after our reservation time on a slow night. Our waiter was curt, direct and not very warm. He was in a suit and on a mission - we still don't know what that mission was.... More

We had dinner here recently for the first time and will be returning often.August has a lovely main dining room and a vibrant bar where you can dine a bit more casually.The restaurant is John Besh's and probably his finest in the city.There is a devotion to local ingredients and really inspired dish composition that makes for some of the...

After dining at Nola, August was a disappointment . The dishes were small and the menu was very eclectic (but not in a good way). Even the salad was disappointing. I had scallops with pork - it was two scallops with a large piece of pork which the waiter said would be crispy.. it was slimy and fatty. Had dessert... More

We love food, and August does no disappoint. We love our cocktails, and August does not disappoint there either. The location is great, the decor is old-school beautiful. The staff is attentive and professional without being intrusive. The foie gras three ways and the oysters are not to be missed, neither is the duck and the scallop/pork belly. Have an... More

This review is for the Friday lunch service. It may or may not be indicitive of regular dinner service. We were able to enjoy an amazing lunch consisting of three courses at the Restaurant August in New Orleans. A Prix Fixe menu is available with two appetizer, entree, and dessert selections. Full menu items are also available. The Prix Fixe... More

I ended up eating here by myself, which I thought would be awkward, but I am so glad I did. It was the best meal I had during my three day stay in New Orleans. I started with a fresh chop salad at the recommendation of the waiter, and I am glad that I did. It was fresh, refreshing, and... More

Tried this restaurant based on TripAdvisor and other travel books' recommendation and high expectations were nicely met. NIce ambiance with warm wooden decor and high ceilings in the main area. Friendly and efficient service. Food was tasty and inspired. Would recommend the warm appetizers for starters: potato gnocchi and potato crisp P & J oysters. Extensive wine list and good... More
