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.

What a sorry excuse for a fine dining establishment. Overpriced, cold food, served without a semblance of a smile. I don’t understand how this place has so many positive reviews - the whole thing was a bit of a joke.

Off the bat, it was quite loud inside, hard to maintain a conversation with the person I was having dinner with, and the dress code they have posted all over their internet presence was not enforced. The server seemed annoyed at us the entire time we were there, and gave a lot of passive attitude. The food was OK. Honestly, for the price and reputation I expected something with a little bit more flavor. A lot of it was just kind of bland.

Whenever I’m in New Orleans, this is a must stop restaurant. Quality of food and service is unmatched. I could make a meal just off the appetizers, but I don’t recommend it.

When I made the reservation I requested to sit in the bar area. Then when I was called to confirm my reservation I repeated my request to sit in the bar area and was told, ‘yes, I see that.’ When we arrived we were taken to a table in the main dining room. When I questioned our sitting assignment I was told that someone had requested to sit in the bar area before me (a lie) because when we were leaving there were 4 empty tables in the bar area.

My husband and I spent a weekend in NOLA with our two kids (3 yrs and 3 months) and dined at cafés and white tablecloth restaurants alike. La Petite Grocery was not the most expensive restaurant we dined at but it was hands down the most delicious! The food was incredible and they were incredibly accommodating with our two children and even gave us a table with space to put the stroller next to it instead of us having to fold it down. Our three year old ordered the butter noodles (which they make from scratch) and they looked so good my husband and I had to each also have a bite. Overall a wonderful experience—excellent food, beautiful plating, and incredibly accommodating. We’ll be back!

They went all out to help us celebrate our twin birthday. The specials were over the top, and the custom dessert better than any dessert I’ve had at LPG before. Thanks!

Started quiet and got loud-ish as more people arrived
Crab beignet batter was light and tasty and the filling cool and creamy and delicate, aioli was bland
Turtle dish was the best thing I tasted on our table, rich
The seafood stew with banana peppers was in a zesty wine broth that demanded sopping with crusty bread (not complimentary)
Rabbit was pan fried and a very filling entree with spatzle and the slightest drizzle of sauce and crisp sauerkraut
We had pork belly and a steak that I did not taste but they got a good review from the person who ordered them
Servers were busy but adequate and definitely not bothersome
Space between tables was sufficient

Great service from our waitress. She didn't miss a beat and we were sitting outside.. Shrimp and grits were excellent. The lamb was good. Mac & cheese was flavorful but a bit dry, needs more cheese but the corn bread crumbs do make it unique as it brings a bit of sweetness. Blue crab beignets were disappointing so was the ricotta stuffed gnocchi were bland.
