Maybe it was what I ordered (lobster bisque, crab stack and wedge salad), but I didn't find the food to be worth the prices charged. (Total on my ticket was $51 before tip). The lobster bisque was more red in color than any I've eaten (and I've traveled and eaten a lot, its my favorite go-to soup) and was not... More

An evening with new friends found us at August Es. They were excited about going to Thai Tuesday. Looking forward to having their Seafood Curry. The look on their faces was such a surprise. The dish was nothing like they had before. It was terribly disappointing for them. My husband and I enjoyed what we had however the portions were... More

It was a busy Good Friday evening but they happily accommodated us. The Hostess was very helpful and friendly, the waitstaff were great. The menu is very varied from exotic game to sushi with lots to choose from. It's all good! There is one large dining room so it's kinda noisy but it's also really cool. There is also a... More

Can't comment on the regular menu as we wanted to go Thai -- it was adequate, just didn't rate up there on the flavor scale. This is a beautiful restaurant though. You might have better luck. Not inexpensive at all; prepare to spend a C note plus

We had a great meal last night here with six folks. Virginia was our waitress and she was knowledgeable and helpful. This place does red meat, wild game, fresh fish flown in from Hawaii and sushi. We had quail for an appetizer and sea bass and the nilgia (deer) chops. Both were tasty - the Nilgia was very lean -... More

We've dined here for many years and, about five years ago, I thought the quality had slipped so downgraded my rating. Now, it's back up to a "5" because the quality and variety of their menu is top-notch. Really delicious with lovely presentations. The main dining room can be quite pricey, though. The waitstaff can get very busy, so aren't... More

As I was walking out the door, I remarked to the maître d' that "this is the first flawless meal I've had in quite some time". That is no exaggeration. This was actually the third time my wife and I have visited the restaurant, and while we've certainly never been disappointed in any way, this last experience was exceptional. Part... More

Dawn and Leu have it down pat. They've been in the business for a long time and they know how to provide an excellent dining experience.

We ate at many other restaurants in town, I reviewed all of them and place August E's in the high end category for gourmet dining. Personal, friendly service, excellent prepared food. We did not try the sushi. Special of the day soup was amazing, arugula salad was large but perfect, quail breast appetizer is definitely a great choice, lamb rack... More
