Had an exceptional dinner at August. Everything about it was delightful. Excellent service and finely crafted food. Very good value.

We especially enjoyed the cocktails, the duck with figs and foie gras, and the overall atmosphere. Our only complaint is that the sommelier did not ever visit our table but conveyed her recommendations through the waiter.

We were perhaps 30 for served appetizers with wine and beer (cocktails on you). They provided us with a good space to wander from conversation to conversation and seating for dinner. I think the appetizers were uniformly excellent as was the food. An excellent experience...More

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.

Don't know. Though it's not a place I'd recommend after my meal there, if you go, I would let the sommelier choose your wine. Her pairings with our tasting menu were superb. She even stopped by the table to chat and she was... More

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.
