On Saturday, May 16, 2020, we re-opened the dining room for dinner service in abidance with the City and State Safe Opening Guidelines. Reservations are preferred. Come dine in this beautifully restored Uptown restaurant on Magazine Street and enjoy James Beard Award Winning Chef Justin Devillier's contemporary Louisiana Cuisine.

The La Petite Grocery name pays homage to the history of its home, a building that’s stood for more than a century. The original structure was built in the late 1800s and called the Central Tea, Coffee and Butter Depot. In 1908, a fire devastated the space and it was transformed into a full service grocery store. Later it was most notably a fine foods and butcher shop, VonderHaar’s Fine Foods until 1982. When La Petite Grocery opened in March of 2004, they similarly aspired to provide the neighborhood with exotic teas, locally roasted coffee, and fresh produce. By doing this, we hope to provide a dining experience that evokes nostalgia of old New Orleans.

    Lovely decor. Odd lack of attention to service that undermines the high cost and wish to return. Despite not being busy and plenty of servers, food came out warm, not hot. the crab beignets should have been sizzling. the poached eggs in the egg benedict were just one stop short of congealing.

    We were so excited to try this place as it was recommended to us by friends. We arrived 45 minutes prior to our reservation. The host, Jordan told us “we have no place for you guys.” I told him we came early to have a drink at the bar. He continued to tell us “there is no place for us at the bar”. He was so rude, I wanted to leave immediately but we decided to stay as I’ve read the food is excellent. We finally sat down and had a delicious meal. Apps, entrees, and dessert we all cooked to perfection. However, the host really made the experience far less great. Please teach your employees how to speak to people!

    We Noted the reservation as our anniversary dinner- nothing was mentioned nor were we celebrated in any way. The “restaurant week menu” was well balanced and I chose the gazpacho while my husband ordered the gumbo for our appetizer. Both were very well prepared. Then we both ordered the Swordfish for our main course. The flavors were very nice and not over done, however, our fish was a bit over cooked and thus dry. The desserts were just “ok” and nothing really wowed us. The service had a nice start but unfortunately rather disappointing finish as we were forgotten several times. We would still suggest La Petite Grocery to our friends and clients. The area is also charming as the street has several local shops to enjoy if you have a long wait.

    Good service. Bread arrived after apps. Good looking dark roux gumbo just not properly seasoned. Oversalted fish, bordered on inedible but not one to return food. Maybe 3 ounces of short rib with green beans charred and wilted beyond recognition. Ok experience but better value / quality elsewhere.

    We happened by chance to schedule our first NOLA visit during restaurant week. That's good and bad. We were delighted to get a reservation at the acclaimed La Petite Grocery. Maybe it was the build up, maybe it was my selection. We did not order off the Restaurant Week menu. Why? The selections were not exciting. So we ordered off the main menu and I may have selected wrong. I choose the Shrimp and Grits. Although tasty, they were underwhelming. Let's just say I have had much better in Charlotte, NC. However, the Turtle Bolognese was to die for as were the savory Beignets. We will try this place again on our return visit as the cocktails were amazing, ambience very quaint and wait staff stellar!

    My husband and I couldn’t choose between all the wonderful dishes on the menu so we did a small plate version of the appetizers and sides. It was all delicious and the cocktails were great! Great wine list as well. Our server was very helpful in guiding our choices. The butterscotch pudding dessert was to die for! We will be back and we will definitely recommend La Petite Grocery to our friends!

    Great wine, the meals were absolutely delicious, but would have wanted a bit of crusty bread with the fish stew (we were told they were out). I don’t recommend booking an outside table in 90+ degree heat on a busy street - that was my mistake! Next time, indoors only 😊
