Like Balthazar, a French bistro in NYC. Great location in the Beekman Hotel, near City Hall and Fidi. Service was professional and on point. Grilled octopus excellent starter and salads are great.
Perfect for business meeting and long lunch with friends.

I hoped to find someplace special to take friends from out of town for breakfast. Augustine’s exceeded all of my expectations. The food and service were exceptional. We all enjoyed the spectacular setting of The Beekman Hotel. This is truly a gem in lower Manhattan!

The Austrian French bread, Mussels & Souffle was delicious! For dessert we had the chocolate cake by & brulee. The cake had no flavor at all.

It was an uneventful dinner - I imagined it would be an amazing experience due to many difficulties to have a table in such place - it was absolutely normal and a bit boring. The food too - boring... Service was practically not existent... Not a charming experience.
I think that their bar is a much nicer representation of this place. Thanks.

One of the great new places in FiDi. The food is always excellent, the staff very well trained and not over attentive, i.e., they let you enjoy your meal. Appetizers, main courses and desserts are all excellent and a wine list that covers all tastes. Has become our go to for an evening out at an excellent restaurant.

McNally hasn't a better looking spot, including Baltazar. There for a Restaurant Week lunch. Despite our limited experience, a couple of small matters were annoying. Tap water was at summer room temp; ditto wine. That aside, food was quite fine. A beet starter very tasty and nicely presented. Steak frites about as good as it can get. Everyone satisfied.

I came to Augustine during restaurant week, really love this classic and elegance place at first sight, the servers and waitress were very nice, Salmon Crudo, Steak Frites and Dorade Royale were very tasty and delicious and beat my expectation.

I VISITED THE RESTAURANT DURING RESTAURANT WEEK. THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD, THE RESTAURANT WAS NICELY DECORATED IN THE OLD WORLD STYLE AND THE STAFF WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND COURTEOUS. I WOULD CERTAINLY RETURN AND RECOMMEND IT TO MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

I would have rated this top stars but am very upset with the management. I took a friend for a birthday lunch and we had a wonderful appetizer, lunch and two drinks. We apparently over stayed our welcome and after the second drink, what appeared to be a manager, came to our table and said we’ll have to ask you ladies to leave and then abruptly left. There was definitely a better way to handle this- maybe asking if we would like to move to the bar since they needed the table- but apparently spending a couple hundred dollars for lunch only buys me food not courtesy. I would not recommend this establishment.

Duck and chicken liver mousse was good.
For Main I ordered a Steak Frite and steak was awful and fries were worse than McDONALDS.

I came by myself to try the restaurant week menu. The salad was lovely, all the flavours worked well together. However, I was disappointed by the Augustine burger, it wasn’t anything special which was a shame.

Terrific French brasserie. Not many great restaurants in FiDi. This one in the Beekman hotel, with an adjoining, swanky lounge, doesn't disappoint. Triple cheese souffle was tasty and delicate. Prime Steak on the bone au poivre for three pricey, but delicious. Gnaw away like Fred Flintstone. Bone marrow on enormous bone. Very good wine list. Nice service. Hip and soft ambiance. I'll be back here soon. From the folks from Balthazar in Soho, another hit.

This is a beautiful French restaurant with impeccable service and fine dining food. We ate there twice in the three weeks we were in NYC. The cherry champagne dessert was to die for. The white asparagus were tender and delicious the first time but stringy the second time. Don’t miss the bathroom in the Beekman next door!

This place builds momentum and gets busy. Smallish menu of standard brasserie fare, done well. My Salade Niçoise and strawberry rhubarb trifle hit the spot. Don’t miss the stunning lobby of the Beekman through a side door next to bar.
