Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I enjoyed our evening. It is a very quant, intimate bistro type setting. The menu is a little bit more limited than I thought it would be -- BUT -- they had quite a few specials to add to it, as well. We had the beef tenderloin and is was tender and delicious. All of the wait staff was super friendly, as well."

  • "My husband's first time in New Orleans and a great place for adults to have a great dinner without kids. Our server Jane was cute and professional. Her recommendations of the burger and blue crab beignets was perfect! Food was devine, hot and all staff was friendly!"

  • "Amazing dinner to celebrate our anniversary. You would think to not get a burger at a fine dining restaurant...it was amazing! And the beef short rib appetizer is to die for. The lamb chop was superb as well. Great dinner and can't wait to go back!"

  • "My crab beignet appetizer was great! The rest of the meal lacked flavor. I saved my entree w/Tabasco. The dessert needed a sauce or two to pull its components together & add flavor. Oh, and the chairs aren't made for a long, leisurely meal. The restaurant has a bright, inviting atmosphere, though."

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at La Petite Grocery this past Friday night. The food was delicious. . . and the service was outstanding. Jonathan was our waiter and he was attentive, personable, and informative. We'll be back. (Oh, those little meringues on the dessert. . . I could eat a bowl of those alone!)"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Service was slow, think it was just our table, other tables seemed to be fine. However, result is that several of our dishes were cold when they came out and that was a shame because the food was really good. I also think if you send something back because it is cold they should bring you a new dish, not your same dish with two bites eaten from it that was reheated."

  • "We chose La Petite Grocery for our anniversary dinner. I must say, it did not disappoint. Incredible food, romantic candlelit atmosphere!! We will be returning soon!"

  • "I eat at LPG regularly and I am never disappointed. The food is excellent, always delicious with little wonderful surprises throughout. The specials are fantastic. Desserts are well worth it--housemade ice cream is fabulous and the other desserts are well out of the ordinary. The staff is friendly and attentive but unobtrusive. If you are deeply engaged in conversation, they will wait for an opening before interrupting you. My only complaint is that the combination of hard floor and hard ceiling makes for a noisier environment than I like, especially at dinner, but it's not deafening...I think the bar area is noisier than the dining room area, so if that's a concern, ask for the dining room."

  • "You must try the blue crab beignets. The shrimp and grits were delicious too. The alcohol beverages were not that great, but will return for the food!!"

  • "We had a wonderful dinner at La Petite Grocery. Started with the blue crab beignets and they were our favorite part of the meal. We had some other small plates which we enjoyed and we absolutely loved the butterscotch pudding for dessert."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Two words: Turtle Bolognese. I watch a lot of cooking shows where they’re constantly discussing the merits of properly cooked pasta. The bucatini was sheer perfection. The wife had soft shell crab and her plate was so clean afterwards that they could have put it back on the shelf. The portion sizes are just right. You’re neither stuffed nor left feeling guilty that you didn’t finish. Our sever was very sweet and very helpful in making our selections. The dining room is quaint but classy. We couldn’t have been happier."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "My wife and I have been here several times, and keep going back EVERY time we visit the Big Easy. The food here is sublime. You MUST try the blue crab Bengiets!!! The Paneed Rabbit is my favorite, with the Turtle Bolognese a close second. Excellent wine and spirits too - so many custom cocktails and craft beers!!!"

  • "La Petit Grocery was excellent. The food was terrific. The house special drinks were very good, especially the alternative to a Sauzarac. The shrimp and grits was missing the Tasso or sausage, but still very good. Would highly recommend. Great service too."

  • "Absolutely loved our dinner at LPG. The server was terrific; very knowledgeable on the menu, what had gluten, etc. Can't wait to go back."

  • "I was disappointed that the syrup was on my waffles. I don't like waffles so was only able to eat a few bites. Crab appetizer was good."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The food and service was great; however, given the cost I would have expected to leave full. I was disappointed in the quantity of food for the money. So, either overpriced or they need to improve portions."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The drinks were tasty and refreshing takes on many of the classic cocktails. The pickle jar was fantastic. I am not a huge fan of pickled veggies, but these were just perfect. Crisp, spicy, and each veg retained its own character. Bread pudding, while highly recommended was a bit tough, dry. The short rib appetizer had to be the best I have ever tasted, we should have ordered two! Special pastrami sandwich was great. And the shrimp roll was good. Desert was great as well. Highly recommend getting to this restaurant when you are in town."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The blue crab beignets were phenomenal. The lamb fell right off the bone and was delicious. The rabbit was pretty good as well. But the carrot cake was awful! It didn't even have the cream cheese icing! What?!?! Yeah, no icing, and the cake itself was pretty lousy too. Also, it was super tiny, maybe cause they know it's so lousy so no one would eat a lot of it anyway. But everything else we ordered I would totally order again! Overall great service, great food, great experience."

  • "Someone in the kitchen is practicing brunoise because everything was, so finely that I couldn't pick it up with a fork.amuse bouche of pickled watermelon was good I think but the one piece was so tiny it was laughable. Carrot-ginger soup was the highlight of the meal and would be great cold as well as warm. Red grouper with peeled asparagus and vegetables brunoised was good but not great. The verbal menu is longer than the printed menu. My service was unimpressive-- first time that's happened."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "This old corner grocery was transformed into a bright, attractive and highly popular little restaurant. The tables are well spaced, the noise level at a minimum, the bar separated from the quieter tables. Favorites among the excellent choices are the pannéed rabbit, lamb shank, crab beignets, butterscotch pudding, and even the hamburger is a winner. Service is outstanding. Price moderate to high."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I went to La Petite Grocery with my two transplant NY friends. It cam highly recommended. We ate the pickles, beniet's, and Ricotta Dumplings for an appetizer. The aioli that was served with the beniet's was outstanding. Everything was cooked perfectly. The pickles were good but I have had excellent pickles from my farmers market. I would pass on those if you have good pickled veggies near you. For a main cours we had the snapper special, rabbit, and beef tenderloin. The fish was crispy, steak cooked perfectly. For dessert we had the shortbread, which was also outstanding. Well done. My only complaint is the noise level. The place was full, and it was really loud."

  • "This restaurant lives up to the hype. I had the shrimp and grits and it was extraordinary! One of the best meals of my life!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "La Petite Grocery is excellent! The dishes are expertly prepared, creative and properly seasoned. It is interesting, New Orleans/local take on Bistro-fare, upscale but not pretentious. **Highly Recommended**. I had the Paneed Rabbit over spaetzle and wilted greens, a panko-breaded rabbit cutlet. The grenobloise sauce was exactly the right companion, a perfect blend of acid from lemon, and butter and herbs. Just a wonderful dish, a different take on rabbit and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. My wife had Blue Crab Beignets, with a side of the Baked Macaroni. She loved her meal, as well. From the bar, I tried the Kentucky Saint, a bourbon/lemon/St Germain cocktail. It was just sublime, one of the best bourbon cocktails I've had."

  • "LPG definitely lived up to the hype. Starting with our amazing server Christy, she steered us in a great direction on a bottle of wine, cheaper and better than the one we had chose to begin with. Her knowledge and friendliness guided us throughout the meal. The crap beignets were to die for, I almost feel guilty even writing about them, they were that good. The short rib appetizer, crusty on the outside, melt in your mouth on the inside with a flavor to die for. Could not decide on a main so we split the saffron fettuccine and bitter salad special. Every bite of everything was amazing. Highly recommend. It's a little bit of a cab ride so plan on 15 minutes from the quarter just in case."

  • "This was our best meal in NOLA! Loved the neighborhood and the scenic drive from our hotel near the quarter to this hip neighborhood eatery. Beautiful energetic setting with outdtanding, interesting food. Loved the pickle jar with the crab beignets. The off menu beet salad was a great blend of flavors. Our fish was a nice split and the succotash like side wad the perfect compliment. Glad we did not pass on the scrumptious butterscotch pudding and carrot cake. This was the meal and vibe we have been searching for in NOLA!!!"

  • "I can't believe I have to wait until my next trip to New Orleans to have those Blue Crab Beignets again. The comfortable dining room is both tasteful and unpretentious. Well worth a visit . . . or two."
