What an amazing dining experience! We've never experienced the level of wait staff attention we received at Restaurant August -- a lovely waitress, a charming waiter, a dessert expert, and an engaging sommelier. Each one was totally prepared to explain every dish or wine choice....More

The decor of the restaurant and the food was very good but the wait staff seemed overly pretentious. Expensive. With so many other good restaurants in NOLA to chose from, I will skip this one the next time I return.

Had an amazing dinner at August. My husband and I shared several plates which were all excellent. The highlights were the gnocchi, shrimp "étouffée" and the scallops. I wish we were hungry enough to eat dessert but we were so stuffed at the end.

This was our first time here and we absolutely loved the experience. It was my husband's birthday. The server and all of the staff were absolutely great and attentive. The food was absolutely amazing!!!

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.
