“Fabulous Florida French”
Review of Drunken Horse

Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Tucked in a back street off the main tourist section you will find this gem of a home. I call it a home because I felt like were were invited into a friends house for dinner. The warmth of the service was so welcomed especially since most of the town eateries are run by college kids where service can be hit or miss. The adults are definitely running the show at the Drunken Horse and it shows in the fine dining quality service without the stuck up pretense.

The decor is mixture of French countryside and Caribbean cool and spotless. The service was attentive, helpful, thoughtful and perfect. I can't find anything I could have wanted more from our waitress. The food was excellent and we enjoyed the charcuteire board, foie gras, beef bourgoinion (you can't spell it either) and sea bass. The wine selection is outstanding and not at all overpriced for the quality and selection. The molten chocolate lava cake; well hopefully you're on vacation, so go face first into it's decadent lusciousness and walk it off.

When we heard the original was in New York, score! Can't wait to try it back home.

Tasting notes:
It's not cheap, but well worth it.
Family friendly so it's equally perfect for date night as well as family time.
Sit outside if it's warm, otherwise move inside.
Large back room for bigger groups
If driving, get there a little early to look for parking (free after 5 on street)

Our new favorite in St Augustine! The food is divine, delicious and perfectly prepared. Service was spot on, friendly,attentive but unobtrusive. Could eat here every night. Best meal we’ve had all week by a long way!

We stumbled upon this place on the first night, one block off busy St. George. It’s small and tables were available. Good French menu, quiet, with friendly service. Tuna tartar was a fabulous start to the dinner. Portions not huge, but that’s to be expected. We left satisfied. Definitely check it out.

We stumbled across this restaurant...it is fairly well hidden and quite modest in its outword appearance. But it is a wonderful restaurant. Our meals of fish and duck were excellent in taste, presentation and accompaniments. The staff and owners were very professional and welcoming and we found the pricing quite reasonable. A welcome change from much of restaurants in this area of St. Augustine. We enjoyed it so much we returned for a second night.

I had a lovely meal with friends. We enjoyed an amazing cheese plate - you get to choose which cheeses and they are all delicious. I had the beef bourguignon - it was yummy. The best was it was a lovely evening in an outdoor area - which is the only way we will eat out right now with Covid. I wish the waitress had worn a mask instead of a shield - and the outdoor space could be spruced up with some potted plants etc - but the food is very worth the visit.
