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.

It’s was good! However my friend had no silverware for half the time we where there. We tried to flag someone drive several times however we would make eye contact but not come over and give us silverware lol. Overall a good experience and won’t stop me from coming back just a little frustrating.

You can always count on a wonderful dining experience at LaPetite. It never disappoints- whether you are sitting at the bar for a small plate with a drink or celebrating a special occasion. They know how to get it right every time.

What a lovely historic building! The food quality was excellent and they pay attention to detail. Located in a beautiful neighborhood, this a a local gem. From the excellent cocktails to well prepared entrees makes this a repeat dining experience. The shrimp and grits were the best we've had in NOLA. Yes there is butter in the grits. Enjoy! Make a reservation.

I've been to Le Petite several times in the past and never have a sub-par experience so I decided to take my mother while she was in town. I told her to order the turtle bolognese which is my personal favorite and always delicious. Unfortunately, the dish came out cold, unseasoned, and with different pasta that it is usually served with - making it hard for one to get a bite of the sauce/meat with the pasta. I had ordered a salad, which came out last which was confusing given the temperature of the pasta.

One of my favorite restaurants. Always good. We had the ricotta dumplings with squash and pumpkin seeds and chicken gumbo for appetizers, both excellent and scallops and fried pork chops for entrees both excellent as well. We had a simple dessert of homemade butter pecan ice cream with salted chocolate cake crumbles. Yum. Along with the meal we had a wonderful bottle of gruner veltliner We sat outside due to COVID and the staff took precautions with masks etc. highly recommend

Again, I wonder if we should find a different way to make reservations. Good food, nice atmosphere, good waiter and awful table. The worst table in the restaurant...Looking directly into the kitchen!!! Seriously considering deleting this app!!!

I had been wanting to visit after hearing great things. I was incredibly disappointed with the food. Nothing that we ordered was special, delectable, or worth a second visit. Simply put, all hype.
