We try to visit James beard award winning restaurants when on vacation, so we picked Restaurant August. It was truly amazing! The sommelier helped us pick a fabulous wine in a descent price range. We also received great recommendations from the wait staff, which were plentiful and attentive. We started with the gnocchi with truffles. It was so superb -... More

Dined here with my parents over Labor Day Weekend. Ate here several years ago with a group of friends and we were blown away by the service, food and the whole experience. So, when planning a trip this time around, this was a must! This experience did not disappoint. We opted not to do the tasting menu, simply because we... More

Service is excellent - we were early for our reservation and did not have to wait. The waiter made excellent suggestions for our wine and food. John Besh is one of our favorite chefs and it was one of our favorite food experiences in New Orleans of all time. Portions are smaller, which is perfect for us as it allowed... More

My wife and I had dinner at August. This was by far the best restaurant we dined at in NO. It is fine dining and pricey but worth it. Good wine selection and everything on menu seems good. I will return to this restaurant. Service was great too.

I am not a big eater but the portions left me hungry at end of evening. Drink options were great. Did not feel this lived up to expectations - pricey for what it was. Disappointed

This was my second visit to August. As before the food was great and the service excellent. One nice aspect is that one passes some serving stations on the way to the restroom and one is always met with a smile. We had a 6:00 booking and we finished our meal around 8:00. Although they were backing up in the... More

The best experience I've had in New Orleans. The gnocchi is to die for. I had the trout & my husband had the filet, both were 5 star. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone I know visiting!!

We had a very special prix fix lunch. It started with a delightful amuse bouche which was presented in an egg shell and ended with a truffle and praline. The pate was elegant. It was a meal that filled all our senses

So we had a weekend planned with friends and arrived the night before they did. We had called ahead to another (more casual) French Quarter restaurant, gotten a recording, and listened to their message saying that they did open on Sunday evenings and did not take reservations. Had the cab take us there from the hotel only to find that... More

The service at August is subpar when compared to other great restaurants in New Orleans. Our server never introduced himself and was aloof during our meal. In addition to the poor service, the bread that was served was awful. It tasted like it was leftover from the previous night. Luckily, the food improved after that. For appetizers we had the... More
