We ate there last night. The chicken breast was over cooked - it was tough to cut with a knife and very dry. The potato pancake was very thin, crispy no flavor and greasy. Not a good meal as far as I was concerned. Very overpriced. I definitely would not eat there again.
Always good and changing menu. I would definitely recommend for lunch as it is cheaper and the food is great. Dinner is pricey and portions a bit small for the price. But there are some very innovative dishes that you cannot get a big box place for sure. I like it.
This was the worst experience I have ever had.I would have been better off at any chain restaurant in the area. My husband was even told that he was not allowed to serve a certain type of beer even though it was a beer on the menu. And the food was terrible. The food was either under or over cooked for the people who were with me. The portions were a JOKE. There are proud of their special sauses and reductions, mabye they should focus on the meat they are cooking and making sure it is fit for serving. The servers were what should I say...not trained well one kept going and asking people what he could do and not do. Then when we went to order steaks they told us that we were not allowed to order our steaks the way we wanted them cooked, instead he told us they were all cooked medium. We should have walked out, but mabye the chef knew how much I HATE seeing blood pooling in the place and wanted to make sure I was really having the worst experience ever. Then he didn't give the food to the right people. I was dumbfounded. I was told this was a high class place and what I found was a place you should go if you want small overpriced portions, no atmosphere, and unsure waiters. The mashed potatoes were good but really who can mess that up. So to Augies Front Burner you should drop all the hype and start serving good food. To those looking for a good place to eat go ANYWHERE else besides here.
Springfield doesn't have much else going for it, so Augie's is a better choice than most. We had to be here on business and were having a really hard time finding reviews of Springfield restaurants. Augie's was mentioned a few times, so that became the decisive reason for choosing it for lunch. There is no atmosphere to speak of, but Springfield doesn't provide much in rivalry. The service was very good. Both the waiter and his assistant were extremely friendly, courteous and attentive. The food was good, but not much more. The menu made our choices seem like very interesting offerings, but the results were just average. Again, that might mean that they were excellent as meals go in Springfield. Another reviewer compared a particular Springfield restaurant to those in Chicago. WRONG! I would recommend Augie's if you can't get to St. Louis or Chicago.
I have to agree with another poster that the food was outstanding, but the service lacking. Not the server, but the time it took. Everything took extremely long to arrive at our table. I would say our entire dining experience was almost 3 hrs. I would go back because the food was so good, but now I would know what to expect as far as time goes. Also, I wouldn't bring my kids there again as they began to get very antsy. In my opinion more of an adult restaurant and not very child friendly. The eggplant napoleons were excellent!
i liked everyting about this restauarant and nothing i disliked about it!! i visited the restaurant last yaer and it was fantastic. I went with my family. the overall experience was magnificent and amazing and the food was delicious. A well job restaurant.
Last night I went to a special tasting at Augie's. The only thing I did not like was being served in what I would have thought was a basement hallway if not for the bar.
What I did like was the food and wine. The presentation of each dish was spectacular. The wine was unique and well suited to each of the six courses or phases as they called them.
My favorite was the avocado crab parfait with orange gaspacho. I had been warned that elk is frequently tough but mine was perfect. The service was great and the table was populated with a diverse interesting group.
