We were underwhelmed by Restaurant August’s food and service. Not quite up to what we expected from New Orleans' "best restaurant." Amuse bouche - outstanding. Fennel soup and pork belly 1st courses - very good. Rest of meal - ho hum. Husband ordered 4 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Wine for 2nd course didn't arrive until he was almost finished. Wine listed on menu for 3rd course was replaced by another without our knowledge or consent. Waiter said "they ran out." What??!! Very noisy. Would probably not go back. On the other hand, NOLA was fantastic.
