    A find!

    I have been here twice with groups and once as a table for two. Both times, I have found myself more than satisfied and having impressed my company. They are a small restaurant and it's cozy European feeling is unique, but for the price, you can not do any better. Our waitresses have always been very patient and that goes a long way when you have a big group. Sit in the back for brunch on sunday!

    Poor experience

    This place had a lot of hype - but we left feeling very let-down. We agree with the other reviewers - the food is excellent, but the dining experience marred by poor service. Our waitress was unpleasant and absent. The room was noisy with irritating background music. Would not return.

    Disappointed

    After walking by this cute little spot several tiimes, we finally decided to give it a try, and were disappointed. While the menu offered a variety of very creative combinations and dishes, they were unnimpressive upon their arrival. There were four of us dining, and none of us received a hot dinner, all "warm". The flavors in the dishes were great, but such things as overcooked fish, an excess of fat, and minimal flavor left us disappointed. We will most likely not return for another dinner.

    Go hungry, Leave parched!

    My girlfriend and I came to August when we could not get into some other local places in the West Village. The service was not so good. The best person working in the place was our waterboy! Who I personally tipped at the end of the night. The portions were small and had little taste. The only good dish I had was the oysters which you can get anywhere else. I do not recommend this place.

    Sum not as good as its parts

    The food at August is outstanding. The two apppetizers and the two entrees plus the one dessert my guest and I had were exellent. However, all portions on all five dishes were a bit small for the price. There is a pretty backyard dining room but the noise level was a bit much when full, as it was on my visit. However, fresh tastes jump off the plate. Just wish there were more of it to jump.

    The chef can do no wrong

    I, once again , had an outstanding meal at August. The blistered peppers and the tarte flambe to start were better than I remembered. Simple. Fabulous. My guest and I had the special chicken for 2 which rivaled Zuni Cafe in preparation and taste. The wine list is well thought out with some great bottles, of which I drank the zesty Txacoli white on the recommendation of my waiter. It was a very peculiar little wine that was perfect for the evening. The gelato is to die for. If I'm not mistaken I think it's from IL Labratorio in LES. The meal was fabulous. The service was good. & the atmosphere is West Village.

    Downhill

    Isn't it sad when this happens? A wonderful place is ruined by too much good publicity? The garden is still lovely, but the food and service have turned August into another mediocre, over-priced Village restaurant.
