Diner Reviews
  • "Amazing food and wonderful staff. Order the Crab Beignets."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "I should have insisted on a better table out of the "hallway" but the service was absolutely flawless and the food, particularly the clam special and dessert, was tops. Great meal. "

  • "I made a lunch reservation for four while on a visit to New Orleans. We were looking forward to a leisurely lunch before shopping on Magazine Street. La Petite Grocery is charming and nicely decorated. The food was well-prepared and tasty. Unfortunately, our experience was less than ideal due to the rude waiter assigned to our table. Clearly he was having a bad day. We asked questions about the menu and he could barely bring himself to answer politely. Another waiter did step in and take his place after we spoke up. He was very friendly and and tried to smooth things over. Unfortunately the damage was done. We were so looking forward to trying La Petite Grocery. It was the only disappointing restaurant experience we had during our trip. "

  • "I thought this was a wonderful New Orleans restaurant. Food was first rate. Homemade spaghetti and crab biengets were wonderful. Lamb Shank, perfect. From drinks to service to food to dessert, first class."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "The food was very good, the ambiance was nice, the location very charming and the wine suggestion was perfect. However, there were a few service missteps. It took over 5 minutes to get greeted up seating. I suppose I just don't see a reason for that. We ordered the steak tartare as an appetizer for the table but it came out at the same time as my friends first course soup and our side dish. It also seemed like it took forever for this course to come out-- but as soon as it was cleared our entree's arrived. I really want my dishes timed properly-- both for digestion sake as well for experience. The standout dishes were: Shrimp Bisque, Hand Made Spaghetti and the Tartare. Our server was lovely at the table but the timing was lacking. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "The food was delicious and the staff knowledgable, friendly and professional. The wait staff were enthusiastic and helpful. The room is lovely and warm. One of my favorite dining experiences in New Orleans - and that is high praise!"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "There are several excellent uptown restaurants, and La Petite Grocery has been among the best for several years. The Blue Crab appetizer appetizer wonderful, and the speckled trout special was great. They have very good cocktails. They get a star just for having parking along a very busy section of Magazine street."

  • "I took my boyfriend for his 57th birthday lunch and we decided to have appetizers throughout the meal to have a wider experience. The servers (multiple) were very attentive and knowledgeable. Our first bite was into Chef Devillier's Crab Bienet creations..wow. Crunchy on the outside and oozing with fresh blue crab and mascarpone goodness inside. Grilled octopus was a rare treat and the asparagus, grilled shrimp with farm egg was well balanced. Next was a handmade spaghetti with crab was next nice but then the chef delivered something unbelievable. Ricotta Dumpings with Lobster & Field Peas rought a tear to my eye. Beautiful experience. "

  • "Good food all the way around, great service. Crab beignets were special. Well made cocktails. "

  • "La Petit was our choice for a last dinner in New Orleans. It was POURING out when we dragged our soaked bodies into the restaurant, but we were warmly received. A table was immediately ready. Adrian was our server, and he made us immediately feel welcome. He was funny, attentive but not overbearing. Our appetizer (crab beignet), salad and entrees (shrimp and grits/seafood stew) were delicious and well-prepared. We ordered the strawberry shortcake for dessert; the kitchen was "short" on the shortcake so we had to wait for a grand total of FIVE minutes (with an apology by Adrian, yet!). Believe me, after a non-stellar experience at an unrelated facility the night before, that wait was NOTHING. All-in-all, a GREAT food and ambience. Thank you!"

  • "After watching Top Chef in NOLA we had to check out Justin's place and it did not disappoint. Loverly decor, excellent food, great service!"

  • "Great atmosphere and absolutely fantastic food. Exceeded expectations in every way. "
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "In New Orleans for a week of business, I sought to get away from the Convention Center hustle. Though this restaurant is a solid 10-15 minute taxi drive away, it's worth it for those who want to see New Orleans beyond the typical tourist spots. We felt like locals discovering this gem--and were so thrilled with it. Most of all, the blue crab beignets are out of this world. They should be on everyone's bucket list when visiting New Orleans. Plus the wait staff is five-star, and the ambiance is sweet, quaint, and comfortable (not pretentious at all, but certainly with elegance and taste). Expect small but superb portions. This restaurant upholds its "Top Ten in New Orleans" rating."

  • "We love this place and it's always great BUT they need to change up the menu more often. "

  • "I wish there was an additional rating between Very Good and Outstanding, let's say Excellent. While not the best meal my wife and I have ever had, it was still up there. My wife and I shared the Blue Crab Beignets and thought they were terrific. We both had the beef fillet and found it MUCH better than the fillet at Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse. The Warm Chocolate Thingy dessert and Creme Brulee were also excellent. We will be back!"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "This was our first visit to La Petite for brunch. We tend to go to the same places when we visit New Orleans. This was a pleasant change. The food was spot on. Our server, Nikki was friendly and had a great sense of humor. We had the blue crab beignets, blistered peppers and braised short rib for appetizers. For the entrees, paneed rabbit, gulf shrimp and grits, blue crab and eggs florentine (the biscuit was decadent). We shared a dessert (warm chocolate & almond date cake) which was not on the same level as the other courses. Wonderful wonderful food and great use of a historic space."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "The resturant is beautiful but unfortunately the food is uneven. While the beef was delicious and tender, the chicken was dry and bland. I would go elsewhere. There are too many other great alternatives in NOLA."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "i've been to this restaurant several times, never disappointed, and never sorry i chose this one instead of so many other fine restaurants in the area."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "it's always a pleasure when a restaurant actually lives up to it/s rave reviews and Le Petite Grocery did. Don't miss the blue crab beignets. They are sublime! Next time we are in New Orleans it's the first place we'll eat"

  • "Found out about LPG from Chef Justin's time on Top Chef. Even though he didn't win on the show his gem in LPG did."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "La Petite Grocery was a delightful discovery for two NOLA visitors who thoroughly enjoyed the tasty fare and warm ambience LPG offers. Our meals began with the grilled octopus and the soup du jour (pureed celery root and white asparagus), which engaged our tastebuds with wonderful flavors. We followed these with the shrimp & grits and beef tenderloin entrees, which both featured sauces that made each dish memorable. We topped off our dinner with a shared butterscotch pudding, at our server's recommendation. It was fabulous! So glad we chose to dine at LPG!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "The food at LPG is so stunningly amazing, I was blown away. I booked this restaurant on a whim for my husband's birthday without any prior knowledge. Little did I know that it is a two-time James Beard award winner. Food was superb, presentation was simple and delightful and the portions were very good sized. I highly recommend the ricotta dumplings with lobster & peas. The shrimp and grits are also the best in the city. I would go back as often as possible. The check also didn't kill my wallet. I was so pleasantly surprised. This restaurant is a total winner."

  • "Great restaraunt for a romantic date or a casual lunch. Beautiful atmosphere."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I've eaten at virtually every name restaurant in New Orleans, and la petite grocery remains at the top of my list. I've had some lackluster meals at Stella, commanders, august, etc. but every experience with la petite grocery has left me more than satisfied. The ingredients are always fresh and unique--but not too unique as to throw off a less adventurous eater. The menu here to my mind captures New Orleans to a t without trying too hard or selling out with clichéd gumbo and the like. The steak tartare rocks my world. The service is excellent, knowledgable, courteous, and friendly, but never pushy. The dining area is small but not cramped, and it can get loud on Friday night but not to the point where you can't have a conversation."

  • "We went to celebrate our anniversary - it was a great choice. The atmosphere was great, the staff were friendly and professional, food was terrific. We requested a window table for 2 and the request was honored. It was perfect! Really loved it and would recommend to everyone!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "This was the second Sunday brunch that my wife and I have had at La Petite Grocery - both excellent. We were seated quickly after arriving a little early for our reservation. Our waiter was very helpful in explaining menu choices as many items are different and special. The bloody mary drink with shrimp, crabmeat and veggies was outstanding and more of an appetizer. The egg, biscuit and crabmeat entrée with smoky crab butter was excellent. We will go back whenever in New Orleans."

  • "The food and drinks were creative and delicious. Bonus: Andrew, a solid and professional waiter, could double for a certain zombie-killing sheriff. #WalkingDead"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "The food was delicious, the blue crab beignets are a must! Totally amazing. We took our 1 year old son, and although the staff was gracious, I would not recommend this restaurant for kids. We went for lunch right as it opened for the day, so it was not crowded and very quiet. Maybe when it is busier you could get away with bringing a little one, but I think I'll save this place for just the adults in the future. We will definitely go back though!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We travel to New Orleans 4 to 5 times a year. This was our first time at this restaurant and it was wonderful. The food was excellent and the service was great. We have already decided that it is one of our favorites and will be back ( hopefully many times)!"

  • "There are so many good restaurants in NOLA. On our recent visit, we had the pleasure of three dinners out in a row. All were strong. This one was divine...food, ambience, service. Between us, we had a salad, seafood stew, the LPG burger, and roasted peppers (so good.) The portions were moderate, but completely satisfying. Situated in a old building in the Garden District, the setting was lovely, quaint, but not stiff. There is no doubt we will return on our next trip to NOLA."

  • "Didn't quite hit my expectations with the food. Dining room felt a little stuffy."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "We have eaten here a number of times, and until this visit it has always been exceptional. Great atmosphere, remarkable food/menu, and excellent service. For some reason, things didn't come together this time around. There seemed to be a shortage of staff, some of our dishes were overcooked (tough spaetzle, dried-out rabbit). Nonetheless, I would recommend this restaurant -- and chalk it up to an off day. One of our party was celebrating a birthday, and he was thrilled with the candle balanced to his butterscotch pudding (which was excellent)."
