It had been a long time since I visited Augusto and now again it was an amazing surprise: Very adequate pricing for fine dinning and excellent food and service.

We have been here before and today service was slow. We got here around 1:00 pm it's 4:30pm and we are still waiting for desert. Food has been great like always. Very fancy place but... Service was not good today!

We took a taxi here from our Hyatt Place hotel. It was my son's first time at fine dining, $78 for 3 course prefixe. The bartender came to us and customized our cocktails. He made me a great variation on a mojito with tomato and basil. They served a complimentary amuse bouche. I had the Grill Octopus tomato fondue, fennel... More

We checked in the Courtyard late. We arrived at Augusto's 5 minutes after the kitchen closed. However, we were told the chef would keep the kitchen open. We sat in the bar area at a small table for 2. I have to say, for staying open later for us they really made us feel special. They brought us small appetizers... More

Spectacular hotel restaurant with amazing service and nice atmosphere. Two people at our table agreed it was the best scallops they had ever had. Chef gave us a few small bite surprises before our food came out as well. Nice touch. Just go and enjoy! And thanks to the management for letting us in a bit under dressed.

I was taken here after a conference and was not disappointed. Very nice wine selections. Crab appetizer was delicious and the scallop entree was equally great. We ordered the warmed chocolate souffle which was amazing

We went with another couple on Valentine's Day evening so they could celebrate their 23rd wedding anniversary. The place has a Four Diamond rating so we were expecting great things. Rather than having some real choices, the five course prix fixe had two of the same type of dish for most of the courses. For example, the opening course had... More
