Friends took us to this restaurant when we requested Chinese food while visiting Louisville. The menu was extensive, and everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the wok shrimp, vegetables, and spicy basil sauce. The portions were very generous. There was a nice selection of wine and they did offer some wines by the glass. Service was friendly and they were... More

I had not been to August Moon for years and was looking forward to this group lunch. The restaurant was not busy at all, our group of 12 was seated in the back room with one waitress. Of course we had made a reservation. We were all served at different times, with the entree served without rice and rice served... More

I enjoy coming here for lunch meetings. The lunch menu is reasonably priced and you get a large portion plus a soup or an egg roll. The atmosphere is great and it isn't so noisy that you can't carry on a conversation. Service has been friendly and prompt. They do get busy so I recommend getting there before noon.

A friend/associate and I have drinks and several appetizers at August Moon about once a month. The food is always excellent as is the service. Heading there for dinner tonight. Always surprised by how few people are there -- probably because of its location more than anything else. I recommend it highly.

My husband and I have been coming to this restaurant for several years. It is close to our neighborhood, is upscale although casual, has a nice atmosphere (including a lovely back patio on nice days) and has consistently good food. It is one of the few Chinese restaurants where we can get brown rice with our entrees, and it has... More

This restaurnat has been around for a long time. The bourbon chicken was pretty good. The hot tea was very good. Usually the service is good but last time I had a new waitress and it was her first night so kept getting wrong order and it was cold. But usually the food is hot and I would go back.... More

We stopped in for dinner and enjoyed the atmosphere. Ordered soup and appetizers. The soup was decent but the appetizers were under seasoned and not very good. Flat sodas, piling up dirty plates, and having to remind the waiter about missing items ensued. The entrees were better but not what you would expect given the restaurant's character or the price....

My wife and I went to this place recently, hoping for a good Chinese culinary experience. Unfortunately, August Moon seemed to have missed the mark that night. The decor is best described as "museum contemporary", and it would impress a first date. We were taken to our table and started off with appetizers and soups: egg rolls, chicken satay, and... More

We have been searching for great Chinese and yesterday I found it. Went to August Moon for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is really beautiful inside with a relaxing atmosphere. The hot and sour soup was excellent and chocked full of tasty items. The chicken with spicy garlic ginger sauce was absolutely delicious. No leftovers from this lunch.... More

We have dined at August Moon many times. On every visit the food is consistently good. It is the best Chinese food in the city, always well made and tasting very fresh.
