A gem of Tapas in Fredricksburg
I was meeting a friend I had nto seen in 20 years and we chose Kybecca based on a recommendation from her co-workers. I am so glad they recommended it.
It was Derby day so I decided on a Mint Julep while I waited. What a pleasant surprise when it was served in a traditional pewter cup with matching pewter straw. It was delicious and the night got better. We chose to share several items as tapas and our waitress was very attentive to not only the service but what we would like. We got everything she suggested.
A couple of notes: one, be sure to ask about wine as they have a larger cellar that is not on the wine list
Two, do not miss the Smores. The housemade Champagne marshmallow is exquisite!

A Must Visit for Fredericksburg!
My family and friends have been going to Kybecca consistently over the past year now. And each time, we've had nothing but the best! The do fantastic wine specials and their ever changing menu focused on the local movement is always scrumptious. The wait staff is incredibly friendly and attentive and they never fail to make your experience truly special. Rebecca, one of the owners, seems to always be present, walking around, greeting guests, which is a cool and personal touch. From happy hours to celebrations, Kybecca is certainly perfect!

Always a pleasant evening!
While Kybecca is known for its wine list, I must say the bartender did an excellent job making specialty cocktails. Kybecca has delicious and unusual food on the menu. I've been several times this year and have never been disappointed! The new bar was packed when we got there on a Friday evening. So glad they are back online with opentable.

We will definitely be back.
We will definitely be back. Dinner exceeded our expectations. We had the shrimp and grits which were beautiful and the Miso hanger steak which was perfectly cooked over a bed of yummy roasted potatoes and brussel sprouts. We had a great time with the wine card and sample pours. We wouldn't have dropped $45 on a bottle of wine but we were happy to do so for (20) 1oz samples. It was great fun creating our own wine tasting and sharing a cheese plate for dessert. Our waitress was wonderful and attentive without being the slightest bit pushy. The hostess and other staff were cheerful and helpful. It was quiet in the restaurant during our meal and understandably louder in the bar on a Friday night. I'm bringing my in-laws at the first opportunity

We went to Kybecca for the first time for a Saturday night dinner with friends. Overall, the experience was great although it was expensive. Our server was attentive without being overly so. We started with the frites which were amazing. For the main course: 2 in our party got the miso hanger steak, one got the shrimp and grits, and I got the chicken yakatori. While the flavor was amazing and the food cooked to perfection, we all remarked that the portion sizes were very small considering the amount of money we paid for it. We ended up getting dessert as well (the s'more and the tiramisu) and they were fabulous. Top it off with the wine, beer, and cocktails, and the evening was very pleasant.

The sauce changes frequently, so I've never had the same mussels twice, but they've been delicious every time! ...and the bread served with it? Absolutely perfect. Couple the all-you-can-eat mussels with a fabulous cocktail and even more fabulous service and you can't beat a Monday evening at Kybecca's.

Food is good quality but if you like very plain food, read the menu carefully as typical plain fare is given an electic spin.

Great Cocktail Joint
Went with a lady friend for drinks around 10pm, stayed till around midnight. The cocktails were top notch (friend loved Summer Rose especially). Come for the cocktails, stay for the ambience.

It was my first time dining at the Kybecca. I had met an out-of-town friend there. He had gotten there before me and was waiting at the bar. The bartender was extremely nice as was the server when we were seated. The menu is limited but the food was very good. We dined inside due to the heat but I think that dining outside would be more pleasant (we were the only ones in the dining room) as it is on a main street. I would recommend Kybecca to friends and would be willing to give it another try myself.

Romantic night out
Thanks to the quiet, dim lit atmosphere, my husband and I had a romantic dinner at kybecca. Great drinks and service! They've changed their menu since last time I've been there, and the food was excellent. Very knowledgable wait staff gave us great recommendations on food and drinks!
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our anniversary meal at Kybeca was superb! The "smoked" cigars (pork eggrolls in a superior sauce) were delicious! So were the red fish and surf and turf. Tiramiso and peach bourbon cheese cake, with excellent wine, rounded out this memorable dining experience. The service was excellent, too.

2nd time's a charm!
This was our second time back to Kybecca. Our first visit was 9 months ago, and I can't remember much about that visit, possibly because we made the mistake of bringing our child with us, and we were too distracted to get the full experience. This time we were on a rare date night. I hd requested outdoor seating if possible, but all those tables were taken. The indoor table we were given was much better! It was in the newly expanded area, and it was quiet and romantic. Our server was amazing! She had great recommendations for our meal. She also informed us that they only served seafood on weekends in order to make sure it's really fresh, so I would recommend ordering from their nightly specials. Try the crispy pork belly-it's stellar!

My Fredericksburg Go-To Restaurant
Whenever I'm in Fredericksburg, I make a point of going to kybecca. The food, specialty cocktails, and service are always top notch. This time I had the Fried Green Tomatoes appetizer (panko-breaded local green tomatoes, ancho chili chèvre, smoked tomato-red pepper chutney) and shrimp & grits entree and loved both. My friend shared a bite of her app, Apples & Manchego (fuji apples, spanish manchego, clover honey and spiced almonds) that was delicious, too. I wrapped up this splendid meal with Chocolate Nemesis (a decadent gluten free cake with crushed nuts, sea salt and finger peppers) that was rich, and yes, truly decadent.

My wife and I went to Kybecca for an anniversary celebration. We ordered the artisanal cheese platter to start, which had some very nice selections. For dinner we had the drunken chicken and miso hanger steak. Our server, who was excellent, offered a perfect wine selection to accompany both dishes. Flavors in each were fantastic. Word of warning - the drunken chicken is very spicy. The miso steak also had excellent flavors, but the meat was a bit tough - had to work to cut with the non-serrated knife I was given. For dessert, we had the 'smores and bourbon peach cheesecake; both were terrific! Overall, a great restaurant - we will certainly return.

Great night out
Wonderful Asian Fusion fare in a contemporary setting in old Fredericksburg. Our servers were friendly and cool and the food and spirits were awesome. Would definitely recommend !

The food and the service were
The food and the service were very good. There were organic choices and local foods which is something I look for. The atmosphere was ok. If I were looking for romantic this wouldn't be the place, but if you are just going out with friends it would be a good choice.

Fun Place/Excellent Food
We spent 1 night in Fredericksburg recently and decided to go to Kybecca. Downtown was buzzing because it was a beautiful evening and a First Friday art walk. Glad we had a reservation as we watched the crowd come and go. The waitress recommended the pork bowl over rice with lots of different tastes and textures. The pulled pork melted in your mouth and there was not a hint of grease or fat. It was so large that we could easily share it and still there were leftovers. We started with a cheese platter and ended with a wonderful bourbon peach cheesecake. The $20 bottle of Rosé was a nice surprise. Our only criticism was that the entree came before we had finished the cheese course, but we kept it and finished it prior to dessert.

Small plate heaven
My family & I shared several wonderful small plates and enjoyed the generous selection of bourbon drinks and beer. Noteworthy was the charcuterie, apples with machengo & honey, and fried green tomatoes with goat cheese. I always head to Kybecca when I'm in Fredericksburg.

Great dinner in Fredericksburg
We were traveling up to Néw England and stopped in Fredericksburg Using Open Table we found this delightful restaurant I tried two of the small plates and my husband had the shrimp and grits. We both had a salad. My husband had the salad of the night and I had a beet salad. Everything was delicious. We also shared a sinful chocolate dessert which definitely necessated another glass of red wine. Our server was friendly and on top of everything. We even shared dog pictures. It was a wonderful evening and we would definitely return again when in the area. Hopefully it will be we're as we learned that we could bring our dog if we sat outside

A Special Night Out
Choices abound at Kybecca! Outdoor/street side dining is first-come/first served; we preferred a reserved table indoors. Could make a meal on the small plates alone (the small plate tomatoes and feta was wonderful and vibrant!) , but don't -- the full plates are excellent, and you'll need the room. Speaking of room, save room for dessert, too. Incredible artistry went into the Chocolate Nemesis, and the slivers of hot peppers--pure genius. Wait staff was prompt, attentive, and very knowledgeable of the extensive wine line and bar offerings as well as every item on the menu. We'll definitely be back to try everything we missed!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful experience. The Oyster's were perfect. The double fried Fries were the best I have had ANYWHERE - EVER. Happy hour appetizer specials were an extra benefit. Great menu and terrific service.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant was "nice", but I would make sure to hit the wine bar next time.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was divine and the service impeccable. We didn't taste a wine we didn't love and the atmosphere and the setting was casual, yet sophisticated. This is a perfect spot for a ladies night out. If you're looking for a place and time that pulls you away from your daily routine, this place fits the bill. Kybecca is no boring white bread and plain mashed potatoes establishment! We were spoiled with rich food and wine, excellent company and fantastic ambiance. Visit this place and TRY their tantalizing food combinations. Everything on the menu has a bit of an exotic sound to it, and that is what makes it so wonderful.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for all you can eat Monday mussels - they were excellent! It's always a fun experience. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly.

Great Food/Drinks, Awful Seats
The food was great, got to try the Lobster Spring rolls! The Manhatten Signature rye wiskey cocktail was incredible....so much so, I ordered a second. Unfortunately, the high top chairs are some of the most uncomfortable chairs I have ever sat on. My date and I turned down a third cocktail at the bar in favor of a location with better seating options. I would love to go back, but not until they invest in some comfortable chairs.

Good service, good food, good vibe
We like this restaurant because the atmosphere is casual while the food is above average. I like that the restaurant is set up to welcome the patrons who want just a small plate and a glass of wine and those who want a full dinner. The menu is small but the offerings are of very good quality and inventive, mixing and blending different cuisines. The wait staff is efficient and courteous.

Knowledge of Wine
When we didn't like either of the Italian wines listed on the menu, our waitress recalled that other Italian wines were in the cellar and brought back two options. She described the wines in detail, and we were very pleased with the one we chose.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service, ambiance with a distinctive and unique menu selection. Best gin martini I have ever had! friends joined us from Richmond and were very impressed and commented that experience was as nice, if not better than restaurants in downtown Richmond. Will definitely recommend and return soon!

First time impression of Kybecca
I was in the Fredericksburg, VA area for the first time and wanted a unique experience. Kybecca seemed to fit the bill and I was not disappointed. The food was fantastic and wait staff very friendly and willing to explain their unique choices from their menu. I did eat late (9 p.m. on a Tuesday night) so the place was close to empty and I cannot speak to the atmosphere during peak service hours but the general décor and feel of the place was great. Perhaps because things were pretty slow, my waiter was especially attentive and even allowed me to try a taste of few different beers that were new to me prior to me ordering the one I wanted with my dinner. I only regret flying solo and getting to share the experience with my wife or friends.

great little restaurant!
I had the maui which was very good and my husband had the shrimp and grits. We enjoyed our meal and our waiter was very good and knowledgeable!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Staff was friendly and very Accomodating!! Our party ordered a variety of menu items and there were NO complaints. We had a large party and was concerned about being disruptive, but the noise level was such that we could enjoy ourselves completely and not disrupt others.
