The restaurant is in a great space with wonderful windows and old New Orleans brick walls. Beautifully decorated and quaint. However the tile floor makes the restaurant very loud for what should be an intimate setting. A table next to us had four young businessmen...More

The Food was really good and truly that is why we were there. But the SERVICE left a lot to be desired. The Host was clearly having a bad day and could not have been more aloof. We will not be returning.

The fois gras three ways was so yummy I could have had that for dinner only. I also had the scallops and they were just as delicious. The brick, the service and the waiter were all outstanding.

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

They may say yes, but it seems a bit formal for kids under 10.

They have an extensive wine list. I wouldn't try to bring your own. Not that kind of place.

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.
