Restaurant August is impressive when you first walk in. The flowers, then the chandeliers and the several rooms. Our servers were Zeke and Steve. They were extremely attentive and friendly. The menu was diverse. We picked the Reveillon menu. A bit pricey but it was worth every penny. We started out with the chefs complimentary Brown butter custard with cauliflower... More

Noticed this place while walking to our intended restaurant and decided to check it out. After a warm welcome followed by a couple great cocktails, we decided to cancel our other reservation and dine here. Very glad we did. Everything on the menu looked appealing, so it took a while to decide. I would recommend

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at August. I would say the setting, ambiance, service and attention is well worth the price of the food. Most of the food was delicious, the exception being the roasted tripletail, which was not remarkable. Everything else we tried was expertly prepared and delicious. I would return here again for the degustation menu.

P&J Oysters were out of this world and the ravioli with truffle delicious. Wine list and service was fantastic. We enjoyed a Billecart Salmon Champagne, Sauzet Puligny Montrachet, and a Barolo Monfortino. Second time ar August... More

This is a lovely unique restaurant in an old tobacco warehouse. Atmosphere is warm and inviting and the service was top notch. The food was fantastic - beautifully prepared and delicious. It is an expensive restaurant, but great for foodies or a special occasion.

Food is excellent and service is great. Fine dining experience. Book ahead and ask to be seated in the front dining room, which is beautiful. Brussel sprout appetizer was great. Tasting menu was awesome with a lot of unique dishes. This is not typical New Orleans food -- it's fine dining and worth it.

Our dinner at August was one of best meals we have ever had. My husband and I travel extensively in Europe and in the US and dinner at August was truly outstanding. The setting is very nice. An old New Orleans building with high ceilings and large windows. Tables are not too close together and the general ambiance is very... More

August is always good. Great food but a bit pricey. The atmosphere is pure New Orleans and Chef John Besh creations are mouth watering.

Description
The cuisine at August is contemporary French with a focus on local ingredients, inspired by Chef John Besh's classical training here and in Europe, and by the depth of his own Southern Louisiana roots. August is located in an historic 19th century French-Creole building in New Orleans' Central Business District. August was a semifinalist for the 2012 and 2013 James Beard Awards Outstanding Restaurant, and has been selected by Gayot as a top 40 Restaurant in the United States. The Times Picayune has named it as one of their top 10 Restaurants the last two years in a row.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
