I should start with the positive first: My husband and I went to August to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant is lovely with very "Old World Charm". For a restaurant that claims to be top notch, it isn't! At all! The food was so average...More

If you like the idea of eating at a Besh place then you have to goto August. A real foodie's place to dine.

Celebrated the 54th anniversary of friends. Outstandingly delicious meal, very well prepared and served with French Burgundy and French Chardonnay suggested by our server. The pairings were excellent ! Not inexpensive--special occasion -- but well worth the cost. The restaurant was full all night long....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.

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.
