  • A Must Visit for Fredericksburg!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/18/2013
    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!

  • Mother's Day Brunch
    Reviewer
    Dined on 5/12/2013
    I decided to take my mom here for Mother's Day as this is one of the better spots in town. When I made my reservation I had a woman call me to tell me they couldn't get a spot near the window. There were several tables open near the windows and they tried to seat us at the smallest table. Normally I would have been fine with this. I said no, we'd sit outside. Once we ordered, our service was not up to par. I had to refill my own water, not the normal service I've had. When we got our food, mine was cold. My mother's food was delicious.I sent mine back and it took 10+ minutes for them to microwave it. Our waiter didn't offer any other suggestions and just left. When he finally returned I asked for our bill, which he quickly brought.

    Dined on 5/11/2013
    Hit on night not serving regular menu /Mother's Day & local graduations. Had a fixed price menu /choices of interesting&delicious 1st &2nd plates. We'd read earlier newspaper review raving about Miso Hanger Steak, so all chose it as our main entree. This a favorite at another local restaurant but disappointment to us all. Crispy new potatoes served with were delicious. Nice selection wines, ambience stainless steel tables with no table setting whatsoever a bit stark, noise level very high even tho not overly busy. Wait staff initially attentive, courses timely manner until the main course. Long delay wi/o explanation. Overall would try again night regular menu avail or happy hr after afternoon shopping,just have glass wine&appetizer.

  • A gem of Tapas in Fredricksburg

    Dined on 5/4/2013
    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!

    We are going back! Food was great, and we had a great bottle of wine. French organic Malbec, which I liked and I a m not the real wine drinker in the family. Rebecca showed us some great wines in the store, and we ended up taking three bottles home. The server was fun and engaging overall it is a nice place have wine, food, and conversation with people you want to spend time with.

    This was a fun place for al fresco dining, and we chose to sit outdoors and people-watch. We were a little ways from the misting machines, but it was still a pleasant location on a not-too-hot night. The first table we were shown to inside was a high table that would not have been comfortable for our short stature, so I was glad we had the outdoor option. We chose to share an appetizer (hummus with red peppers) and ordered small plates for our main meal. The shrimp and grits was fantastic! And the portions were just enough so that we had room to split a dessert. Cappuccino was also delicious. Our waitress was very personable, and service was excellent. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 5/16/2012
    We sat outside and it was slightly warm when we arrived. They had the misters on outside and you couldn't sit outside without getting drenched. Our entire table was soaked and we had to ask them to turn the misters off. Then they didn't even offer to wipe the water off of the tables...had to ask for that as well. While the bar/restaurant is cute, the food is extremely overpriced for what it is. There is nothing exciting about the menu and leaves much to be desired. I also think their sliders taste like something you would get from Kyrstal Burger.

    Seems like a good every day place, but not for a special occasion like mother's day. Something was missing. Had the corned beef hash with a poached egg on it and it was very good but I would have liked to have had some bread for the table. Good quality food, but no frills.

    Everything about Kybecca was very nice and it was an enjoyable dining experience. If there was one thing I had an issue with it would have to be portion sizes. For an appetizer we ordered the Zucchini with Romesco and even though it didn't cost much my wife and I both thought there would be a little more there than what was brought on a tiny tea plate. The Gnocchi was well made and my swordfish was good, but may have been a little heavy handed on the salt.

  • Going downhill....
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 5/2/2012
    I have been to Kybecca at least four times. I keep hoping for improvement, but things seem to be going the other way. The service has always been abysmally slow (we drank all of our water before we ever saw a server, had to wave down the owner for wine refills, and never did get anymore water for the table, just to name a few issues) but we were expecting that on our repeat visit, so it was not a big deal. However, the quality of the food has greatly deteriorated since our last visit. Beet chips that were soggy, shrimp and grits that tasted like the shrimp was poached days ago and microwaved, buffalo sliders that were made with preformed Patties less than 1/8" thick. The owner has sacrificed quality for speed of plating the food.

    Excellent wine and beer selection. Cheese plate was very good but portions were small. Bison and Blue Cheese sliders were amazing. Also enjoyed the marinated dry aged beef skewers over basil rice - wonderful combination. Stay away from the Chincoteague oysters -poor quality and flavor.

    I found the food to be excelant, but very small cheese plates & appetizers. The wine was not as good as I had hoped & it was pricy for food. I also was not made to feel very welcome or like they cared if I came back. We spent $200 that's a lot rite now.

    Wine by the glass menu was very short. Portions are petite in comparison to other restaurants especially for the price you pay. BUT if we American's stopped pigging out you realize they are the perfect portions to enjoy a varity of food. Bison sliders were tasty. My favorite was the pistachio pesto!!! I'm not a pesto person and I could have eaten this stuff on everything. I highly recommend this restaurant esp for special occasions. The high price is worth it.
