    We had heard so much about this restaurant, and it certainly lived up to its billing.. the crab beignets were great and we could have stopped there.. but we had an additional fetticini appetizer and my entree of panned rabbit was delightful. Would highly recommend.. oh and the sazerac was very good also... we topped it off by sharing a great carrot cake slice with a bit of ice cream.. all in all, service well attentive and food over the top.

    We were able to walk to this wonderful restaurant from our B&B and thoroughly enjoyed the delicious and innovative menu vs long with Will's warm, knowledgeable and professional service. He talked me into a bourbon cocktail and I don't like bourbon. ..it was delightful. We shared 3 appetizers, the fresh snapper and a desert. Each dish was a treat.

    We were in New Orleans for a few nights and my husband and I were looking for a nice place to try that was off the beaten path and different from Bourbon Street area. We had a wonderful dinner and the service was fabulous. The corn and yellow pepper soup and the shrimp and pork belly appetizer were so good we are still talking about it! Everything here was great. You can't go wrong !

    Brought our daughter to Tulane for her freshman year and wanted to have a special family meal before we headed back to Chicago. La Petite Grocery was absolutely the best choice. From the well crafted cocktails to locally reflected appetizers and entrees, we completely enjoyed our experience. The service could not have been more accommodating and gracious. Even with a snafu in the kitchen (we ordered the shrimp and grits without bacon and we were served the dishes with bacon), the staff certainly impressed us. The manager immediately came to the table to apologize, a delicious amuse bouche arrived at our table (meat free!), and the kitchen remade each of the shrimp and grits meals. Enjoy La Petite Grocery for an incredible dining experience!

    This was my first time there. The blue crab beignets and sauteed shrimp with trumpet mushrooms and poached egg appetizers were wonderful and enough to split between our group. My entrée was the rabbit and was delicious! Had a bottle of pink champagne for my birthday celebration. My only surprise was that although I had written that it was a birthday celebration when I made the reservation, it was NOT acknowledged in any way on the day. A little disappointing.

    LPG is a really enjoyable place to dine, although I think the brunch I've had in the past was better than the lunch I had this past weekend. There aren't a ton of lunch specials or selections to choose from, and the price point is pretty steep for lunch fare, but the drink specials are always tasty and I really love the ambiance. I like this place more than most other high end places I've dined in NOLA, such as Geautreau's.

    Ordered daily special coconut and sweet corn soup, hamburger and fries. All excellent as usual. Wife had daily special bean and pea salad which was very good. She ordered two appetizers for lunch, the blue crab beignets and pasta with crabmeat. We finished with the roasted peach dessert. Everything was shared. Service was helpful, prompt, pleasant and professional. Pricing was very reasonable. Gated parking was very convenient across the street. As usual, the visit was very enjoyable...perhaps our fifth.

    I have been going to La Petite at least once a month since the first time I dined here. The food is consistently flawless. I try and order something new every time but the octopus salad, truffle bread pudding, and macaroni and cheese are always on my list to order. I have only made it to dessert twice (due to ordering 4 small plates and entrees...always) but it is as complex and delicious as the main menu. This particular time dining was the only time things were not completely perfect (by their normal standards). The wait staff did not seem ready for the amount of people dining at 6:30. It took a half hour before our order was taken, 45 minutes for a drink (could have gone up to the bar I guess), and on and on. Not normal for here.

    We were blown away by Chef Devillier's menu. We had compressed watermelon with finger lime, sea salt and mint. Followed by blue crab beignets and braised short rib. Amazing. I had the turtle with homemade pasta and my wife had the paneed rabbit. We finished with coriander ice cream puffs. We can't wait to go back.

    It's beautiful and one of my go-to places. Usually get special service but on this night I had to ask our server to clear the plates-- twice. I was told Justin was "in house" but not in the kitchen. Food ran the gamut that night. Ricotta dumplings-- needed salt and cayenne Bibb lettuce-- winner Saffron Fettuccini--good flavor but swimming in sauce Fish special- Red Grouper got good reviews Cauliflower soup-- apparently good-- she licked the bowl clean without offering a taste
