Blogger Reviews of August Restaurant Restaurant

  • Tiffany Tastes on Aug 08, 2013

    New Orleans is a food city, and plenty of "celebrity chefs" have at least one restaurant in the Crescent City. I wanted to experience some of the best food in the city, so we patronized some of the big-name places...

    Although everyone I mentioned it to, leading up to my interview with John Besh, said he’s such a great guy, I still wasn’t prepare for how completely impressed I would be with him...

  • Tony X.Had the 5 course degustation menu w/wine pairing and was not dissappointed. Everything was delicious but the clear standout was the Halibut cheeks. Definitely give this place a try!

    55555 by Dave G.


  • K JOur experience was sub par due to the disconnection from the staff. Not hospitable or welcoming.

    22222 by K J

    55555 by Marc Schapiro

    55555 by Chris B.


  • Emery C.Fancy fine dining with a slight casual edge. Great menu

    55555 by Emery C.


  • Lars P.Ask questions about the dishes to take delight in the vivid descriptions of ingredients and preparation. Even if you know what you want to order.

    55555 by Lars P.


  • Jamie WrightThe tasting menu is Devine! The a la carte menu is just as good. Try the gnocchi or the short ribs! The service is impeccable.

    55555 by Jamie Wright


  • The B.Very disappointing. Duck was hard, hangar steak had no flavor. And the salad had sugar on it. Server was not great.

    22222 by The B.


  • Allison Y.The foie gras trio is a serious treat

    55555 by Allison Y.

    55555 by sheela t.


  • Adrienne L.You can order a la carte off the prix fixe dinner menu. The octopus dish is tender and excellent.

    55555 by Adrienne L.


  • Jennie LamGreat food but feels impersonal. The quality is great though and the flavours are definitely there!

    55555 by Jennie Lam


  • Eric D.Fantastic tasting menu. If you're look to splurge on a cajun/creole inspired treat, this is the place.

    55555 by Eric D.

    55555 by Chefs Feed


  • Susan C.Highly recommend! The food is exquisite but the restaurant isn't stuffy. Highlights: black truffle gnocchi and trout with roasted wild mushrooms. The blonde chocolate cake was to die for. GO!!!!

    55555 by Susan C.


  • EpicuriousHere you'll find local oysters transfigured three ways on a single plate, rabbit cassoulet alive with vivid flavors, and pan-roasted redfish with basil risotto and fried green tomatoes.

    55555 by Epicurious


  • Melody H.The weekday lunch prix fixe is the best deal in the city - get the Whispering Angel rosĂ© to pair

    55555 by Melody H.


  • Linda M.Fridays at lunch experience an imaginative 3-course meal with vigilant , but not intrusive, service for $20.14.

    55555 by Linda M.

    55555 by Thea R.

    55555 by Amelia M.


  • Josh L.It's celebrity chef John Besh's place, so skip the food, and head to the bar for Besh's bacon-infused bourbon. Enough said.

    55555 by Josh L.


  • V C.The foi grois is incredible.

    55555 by V C.

  • Paul F.It was amazing, the grouper was incredible and the wine list is impeccable.

    55555 by Paul F.


  • Joshua G.As with most places that are worth the wait, get a reservation, sit back, let the wine flow, and watch the hours float away. Did i mention the food?....

    55555 by Joshua G.


  • Irena C.Get the crab gnocchi. Everything else is just alright in comparison.

    55555 by Sam J.

    55555 by Linda M.


  • Trevor S.Maybe best meal of my life. Ask the sommelier for wine pairings. 2 apps, 1 entree and dessert and that should really do you well. Ask for hot fois gras trio. It's better than cold one.

    55555 by Trevor S.


  • Igor O.Still my favorite restaurant in NOLA. Turn of your cell, don't be in a rush and get ready for possibly the best 7 courses you've had in a long time!

    55555 by Igor O.
