    Before dinner we always start with a cocktail and we both had a Mint Mojito. Don't let the price scare you off, it was amazing! The drink was served in a very cold metal cup which had frost so thick you could crave in it. For appetizers we both had the Crispy Pork Belly, wonderfully prepared and presented. For dinner I had the Beef Osso Bucco, that was cooked to perfection. The beef was so tender you didn't need a knife to cut it, it just fell apart with a fork. Finished with the White Chocolate Tiramisu which is a nice change with the white chocolate pastry cream and white chocolate shaven curls. We look forward to returning.

    I was meeting a friend for dinner in Fredericksburg and came across this really cool looking place. I checked out the menu and made a reservation. I had crab cakes and my friend had salmon. We were both very disappointed. The food was not flavorful at all. The design decor was nice though. Too bad that's not edible.

    We met friends for dinner and the food was excellent and wait staff was great. We at at 5 and by the time we left around 6:30 the place was getting filled up. I would definitely go back again, the menu isn't overwhelming but had a good selection. We ordered from the raw bar menu and then two people in our party had the shrimp and grits that were out of this world and the scallops were perfectly cooked and the veggie plate was filling and very tasty.

    The offerings at Kybecca never disappoint us. The creativity of the chef and use of local produce and products make this our go to favorite for a night out. We had the fried green tomatoes with local grown tomatoes, and corn salsa. Excellent! The crabcakes were outstanding as well with pure lump crabmeat and flavor galore. Dessert was peach cheesecake and wow was that yummy! This restaurant is a gem to Fredericksburg and we hope it stays around for a long, long time!

    In the heart of Old Town you don't want to miss this wine bar with local food selections. Yummy & healthy! We sat outside on the sidewalk and enjoyed the ambiance of the town and the local dogs who where having lunch with their owners! This place has wine taps...so buy your card and serve yourself. You can do as many tasting as you like...its fun!

    I was picking up a friend at the train station for the 4th of July weekend and only three restaurants in Fredericksburg offer the option to book through Open Table. I chose Kybecca because it was located in the historic district. What a great find. We ordered the specials which were fabulous and well presented.

    This was my first visit since their remodeling. They now have the restaurant in a separate area from the wine bar, although you can still get a meal in the wine bar. This arrangement works better and allows better conversation over dinner. The food was excellent (I had shrimp & grits, she had pork chops). We split an excellent hazelnut cheesecake and had coffee. The waitress was very knowledgeable and helped us select 2 excellent wines. Very nice evening and very nice restaurant. Make reservations and plan on parking being a problem (we parked 2 blocks away and almost got caught in a thunderstorm).

    Food was good, tasty and different. Cocktails were well done. Bar noise and general noise level is a bit high for a conversation. Maybe the ceiling should be treated with some sound panels. The Wash Post restaurants reviews include sound level ratings now. If Kybecca want diners to be able to have a conversation, they to change the acoustics.

    Given the limited Open Table choices in Fredericksburg, we weren't expecting a ton from Kybecca. Boy were we wrong. All of our dishes were excellent and the craft cocktails were top notch. Definitely try the fried brussel sprouts and the Aviation. They even made us our favorite cocktail, the Last Word, despite the current lime price gouging.

    I recently visited Kybecca for the second time and my experience this visit matched the first time - this place is consistently wonderful. The first visit was just my husband and I and we enjoyed many small plates and a few cocktails. The wait staff was very attentive and the food was delicious! This second time was a party of 6 and the service was just as good and so was the food. I was hoping to try a few of the wines, but the spring sangria was so good that it was pretty much all any of us drank. I would recommend Kybecca to anyone looking for good food and drinks in downtown Fburg.

    We went to kybecca for Mother's Day dinner. Honestly, after reading all of the reviews, I was not sure what to expect. The prices are not cheap, but WOW. The amount of food you get, and the absolute quality of the food makes the price seem like a bargain. Their wine list is very nice and I will recommend the steak as the entree. It was ridiculously good and after an appetizer and the first two courses, we all had plenty of leftovers. Honestly, by the time the main course came I just laughed to see the portions because we were all feeling full. This is going to be our new special occasion restaurant. Well done kybecca. Keep it up!!!!

    The food and service at Kybecca is always great but the service on this beautiful day really couldn't have been better. My family and I enjoyed several small plates and shared large plates. The only down-side was a large group in the center of the restaurant that was celebrating a birthday and was very loud ... this made hearing one another at my table somewhat difficult and detracted from the otherwise delicious meal.

    Kybecca is our favorite restaurant in Fredericksburg for a special evening out. The chef is amazing with his creativity and use of local products. We have been here at least ten times and we are never disappointed. The menu selections and the flavors and total experience cannot be rivaled in Fredericksburg and would absolutely rival some of the well known gourmet eateries in DC! The ambiance is relaxed yet modern. Service is excellent. Absolutely love the 2nd room that they opened last fall. We highly recommend Kybecca and highly recommend getting reservations during Friday & Saturday evenings.

    We were in F-burg looking to move there for our retirement and came across Kybecca. Good cuisine - or lack thereof - is one of our hesitations about moving the to area, but this place put some of those fears to rest. Interesting dishes, fresh ingredients, edgy interior. Good, but short, wine list.

    The ambiance at Kybecca was great. I highly recommend this establishment due to their great attention to customer service. I recently posted a review on Yelp and within hours, I received a response from Kybecca's owner explaining why one of our dinner entrees was served cold. The wife and I enjoyed the uniqueness of the menu - BBQ skirt steak and Ramen rubbed shrimp. Both of the dishes had good flavor, but my ramen rubbed shrimp was cold (ps. it's served cold because of the kim chi)! So may be that played a little to the sub par quality. Besides the cold entree, we loved the marshmallow graham cracker as our dessert. I give that two thumbs up. And lastly., it is a wine bar and their selection is amazing.
