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.

A great place for a quiet, refined dinner. The service was spot on and every menu item was delicious. I'm still dreaming of the potato gnocchi with black truffle.

This is a very high end restaurant with gorgeous ambiance. The menu is small, but everything we had was excellent. My husband and I enjoyed the oysters and the crab pasta. The duck entree was to die for as well. The spumoni dessert was incredible too. The cocktails were fantastic too! Definitely recommend.

A lovely and rather intimate restaurant divided into rooms. Because of traffic, we were late but our reservation was honored. The cocktails were excellent as was the amuse bouche served in an egg shell. The oysters were over the moon. We mainly eat seafood, and the menu choices are small.

My boyfriend and I dined here for New Year's Eve last night and were also celebrating our anniversary. Although we were taken great care of by the manager for our sub-par experience we still feel compelled to write an honest review. This is not comparable by a long shot to any foodie type meal or fine dining restaurant that we've personally encountered in Chicago. There is no excuse for food at this price point to be served cold or undercooked and we were disappointed when our server ignored us when we complained about our entrees. Considering all the glowing reviews I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they were having an off night. Sorry to say that regardless we were underwhelmed and would not return.
