    The restaurant was nice. The food was lacking and average at best. I didn’t feel like we got much for what we paid. The service was subpar we waited a long time to be attended to after each course. Ended up just skipping desert because things were moving so slowly and our waiter never came back. We won’t be returning unfortunately.

    I advised them in my reservation it was my birthday and my husband told the hostess as well and nothing special done. I was a little disappointed after we told them. I did see someone else have a plate under her dessert with “Happy Birthday” written on it. Also the foie gras we had as an appetizer wasn’t my favorite. I love foie gras but the presentation was just weird to me. The service was very attentive and upbeat. My red snapper was delicious. The dessert of pot de creme was yummy.

    This is an experience, not just a meal. Ms. Sue is phenomenal at pairing wines to your menu choice. I chose the chef’s tasting menu after confirming that the chef could allow for my citrus allergy. The servers were knowledgeable and polite. Great experience!

    Servers just drop the food and does not even asked who ordered it. Head waiter or was it the Maitre D who took the order did not pay too much attention. We feel that they were paying more attention to white guests.

    We are from Mississippi, 1.5 hours away. We've been eating at August since around 2007-ish. Our expectations have always been exceeded. It is our favorite fine dining restaurant in New Orleans. The combinations are just surprising and delicious. It is a learned skill and an art that can't be taught.

    An excellent meal! High quality ingredients prepared in imaginative and very tasty ways. The gnocchi starter is memorable. I remember how much I enjoyed it several years ago, and it did not disappoint this time. The Redfish Pontchartrain was unique and very good. Presentation is a high point at August. The different courses were visually appealing. Service was excellent. The staff and chef went out of their way to adjust dishes to meet the needs of one at our table with a shellfish allergy. Restaurant August is high quality, fine dining in New Orleans, a cut above most others in the city, and that is saying something! Highly recommended for any special occasion, an intimate dinner date, or important business meal.

    10/10 experience and food art! 1️⃣Amouse-bouche Delicious creamy mouse, garlicky clouds. 2️⃣Yellowtail Tiradito For me it’s a play on ceviche. Paired with the wine it’s a heavey sweet sour extravaganza. 3️⃣Burrata Stuffed Squash Blossoms Lightly fried and perfectly filled. These squash blossoms are to die for. 4️⃣Ballotine Rabbit Rich and flavorful. The sauce is amazing and the peppery wine marries perfectly with the rabbit meat. Amazing! 5️⃣Veal Tenderloin Sweet, delicate, and impressive. For a non mushroom lover this dish was a pleasent surprise. 6️⃣Blueberry ‘Shortcake’ Perfectly sweet and savory this dish is an explosion in your mouth. Paired with the most delicious wine I’ve ever had (I am a sweet tooth). This was a perfect ending to a perfect meal.
