Nice place and atmosphere, but felt really rushed by our waitress like at a Denny's... Otherwise good food. Ran out of some sushi options, but can expect that at other mid-ranked establishments, but not here or a place that came highly recommended, and unfortunate it happened right when we ordered.

Awesome food and fabulous service. Loved the art on the walls. I had the pork chop and loved it. It's fancy but you can be casual. We had our 8 year old with us so they let him order the sliders and fries off the bar menu. Perfect!!!!

Tuesday night is Thai night at August E's so this review is about the Thai food & not their regular menu. This is a Steakhouse. The restaurant is minimalist & somewhat industrial but the lovely large art pieces ( by J Blair) pulls the place together. It has a seperate bar area & a smaller seating area outside of the... More

The service was impeccable and everything from the bread to the spicy lobster roll was amazing! A great dirty martini with bleu cheese stuffed olives...perfect!

We sat at the sushi bar at the end where we could watch the chef. We ended up talking to the chef Lou and he filled us in on the fish he had. The fish was so good, we ended up doing sashimi for the evening. Service was great, the people were friendly, it was a great evening out. We've... More

We had always wanted to go, but had not had the opportunity before..therefore, our disappointment was more poignant. The sushi was good, not great...the lobster bisque tasted like butternut squash soup with a piece of tough lobster floating in it. The tempura shrimp and vegetables tasted like it was chicken fried, but limp...maybe that was the way it was supposed... More

Last night my friend, Marla Camp of Edible Austin and I enjoyed the Hamachi Scallion Roll, the Lobster Volcano and the Rainbow Roll. Each one was fresh and delicious... More

The Food was amazing. They have a lobster bisque that was one of the best I have ever had. After ordering first drink order, the wait was 20 minutes. Another 20 minutes to place food order. Literally no service we had to keep stopping people to get assistance and ask for bread. Our server had tables in the main room... More
