August is charming respite amid the hustle of Midtown Manhattan. Fans of the longtime Bleecker Street location, which closed two years ago can continue to enjoy Chef Mark Mata's eclectic takes on classic comfort food.

I try to order something different whenever I dine at August and I'm never disappointed. The house salad with avocado and the Atlantic salmon were delicious!

We ate inside - it was quiet and a nice ambience. Mains were the sole and the tuna, both of which were excellent (the sauce for the tuna a touch too sweet), and the dessert and coffee were good as well. Service was efficient and professional. I'd definitely go back.

A nice blend of Americana fushion food with a strong emphasis on fish. Tuna on Sticky Rice is amazing along with the Sole. So glad they survived the Covid pandemic.

August is a delicious little spot on Lexington. Wonderful, seasonal menu with lots of options. Great for lunch or dinner. A neighborhood gem that is worth going the distance for eclectic dining.

We ate inside and there were only 2 other tables with diners - it was very comfortable and service was excellent. We wouldn’t sit outdoors- too busy street.

Great find for a Friday evening date night. Cozy atmosphere and delicious cocktails. Scallops were exceptional, steak could've used a bit more seasoning.

Outstanding dinner, cocktails were exceptional, the outdoor space was beautiful. They were slightly understaffed that night, but it didn't take away from the experience.

Overall our dining experience at August was very good. We ate outside, hence the mediocre rating for ambiance. The service was great and the food was quite good. I shared the octopus and my friend had the tomato soup for appetizers. Ordered the scallops and another had the sole. We all really enjoyed our meals. The wines were also pretty good. However the food was very overpriced, even for a Manhattan restaurant.

Very very good food. Just a little expensive for what it was. A pea soup with a few shrimp doesn’t have to be $15.

The food was very good , service fine but nothing special . Smaller , nice neighborhood simple feel but not a place you would go back to because of the interior . Would go back if I was in that part of town bit wouldn't make a special trip

Outdoor. Fine Sunday brunch menu. Reasonable prices. Generous portions. All three of us liked the home cooking. Corn bread with special butter was so good that we took an order home. Excellent waiter. VERY Cold, rainy day. Overhead heaters. Cheerful white semi-enclosed street room with clear partitions. Very few people. No one inside. Friends ate outside for dinner on Friday. Again cold weather. Outdoor area full. Indoor almost full. They liked the menu and food. All of us plan to return soon.

Delicious lunch menu. This restaurant has maintained its quality after its move from Bleecker Street a few years ago. I wish it had opened even earlier for outdoor dining.

Maitre D was excellent in trying to provide heating when the heat lamps continually flipped off the circuit breaker. With no heat It was chilly and uncomfortable eating. Hope they work it out as it will be necessary to provide consistent heat when eating outside ad as the season gets colder.
The gentleman host was also apologetic and sincerely cared as he witnessed how cold we were. Once patron left the other moved her seat.
I had tomato soup although delicious the portion was minuscule.
Overall difficult times however I, personally, like to feel the food value is equitably priced in line with the portion.

We waited almost 50 min for our food which consisted of an omelette and a tomato soup. The restaurant was almost empty and no once came to check on us. So a little frustrating given the prices...
