LPG may have had a great reputation at some point, but at the time of writing this their food was lackluster and waitstaff seemed fairly bored. I like to visit known restaurants when I travel and am willing to pay for imaginative dishes or even just solid takes on classics. Neither of these were presented at LPG. Save your money and check out any one of the numerous oyster bars in town.
Very good. Martha was excellent.
The Irish Channel St. Patrick's Day parade was passing right in front of the restaurant so was willing to cut restaurant some slack with any hiccups. We told our waiter that family was riding in the parade so we might get up and see them when they passed. No problem. We were also celebrating paying off our mortgage. Food was incredible. $100 bottle of wine was incredible. Service was a bit disjointed and as our reservation was the late one for lunch and the parade was passing by, again was willing to cut the restaurant some slack. Family passed in parade, let our waiter and hostess know, left for 10 minutes right in front of restaurant, caught beads and cabbages. When we went back to restaurant, door was locked to prepare for dinner service. Knocked on front door, manager came to door and said they were closed. Explained through the door that we still had food on the table and more importantly we had not paid for our meal. Again, he told us they were closed. My wife and I laughed. He then cracked the door open to report that they were closed until dinner. We laughed again and told him we hadn't finished our meal and hadn't paid the bill yet. In addition, there were still other patrons finishing lunch inside. Our waiter had even brought out dessert menus to our table for when we came back in. With a bewildered face, the manager let us in and I don't think he still realized even after we sat back down at our table what was going on. Obviously there was miscommunication between staff and manager. Nevertheless, we will give La Petite Grocery another chance.
Really enjoyed our dinner food and service were excellent
Excellent service and a great meal as always!!
The blue crab beignets alone are worth the trip. Insanely good. Great specials, too.
Food was great. Cocktails were great. Everything it was cracked up to be.
Incredible- every bit the example of a James Beard Award winner. The blue crab beignets are worth a plane ticket.
Excellent local dinning spot in a vibrant area. Food was very good, service was upscale and the portion sizes were just right for a café/bistro. A great stop in the Gardens district of New Orleans.
Excellent food and service. One of the best meals we had in New Orleans.
Had a nice date night here while visiting New Orleans. The food was excellent.
Fantastic food, I had the duck breast and it was absolutely delicious.
We ate the crab beignets, the friend green tomatoes and the scallops. They were excellent. The duck special was incredible. And don’t miss the creek brûlée
Everything was fantastic. Great neighborhood spot. Fantastic food and variety.
Went for brunch OMG. So delicious. Have the sweet sausage. It s served on a bed of corn bread and spinach with a sunny side egg. Suppose to be an appetizer but is enough as a meal. Just heavenly. My friend tried the shrimp and grits. Was so good i don t even remember what i paid i remember the food lol
An enjoyable lunch. The food was unique and delicious. The server was great. We had a lot of fun!
Outstanding all the way. We started at the bar with perfectly made Sazeracs. Our party of 4 shared the blue crab beignets as an appetizer and thought we could have made a whole meal of them. Two at our table had the pompano special served over quinoa and bok choy and couldn't stop raving. One had the steak and frites. We all sampled his and it was delicious. I opted for two appetizers as a main, the ricotta dumpling with mushrooms, and the braised short ribs. Both were so delicious and a great combination. The service was friendly and available without being obtrusive. A very fine night of dining
What a wonderful find while visiting New Orleans. The food was superb. Our server wasn’t the most personable but got the job done. It was a busy night, maybe they’re all like that as this was Wednesday, but the noise level was such that it was a little difficult to hear someone talking to you. We were seated at a window table by the bar so that may have been the issue with noise level. Overall a great dinner and a lovely dining experience.
This was a real treat . One of the best meals i have ever had.
The food was excellent . The lamb shank was tender and juicy ,
the grits and shrimp was creamy and out of this world and the pork chop was
The waitress was personable and very attentive .
This restaurant is a neighbor gem .
Great food and ambiance. Sophistication of the dishes was very high and the vibe was easygoing. Two thumbs up.
Fantastic experience from A to Z
The service at this lovely restaurant is every bit as good as the excellent food. The staff is very attentive and courteous. The food is some of the best I've had in New Orleans. Don't miss the crab beignets. They're fabulous.
Delicious! We like to share small plates so we ordered about 5 appetizers to share. A tapas menu would be a great addition. We will be back!
For our final meal during a visit to New Orleans we chose La Petite Grocery in the Garden District. The food was exceptional, especially the blue crab beignets and the chicken liver pate mousse topped with duck fat—truly heavenly! The cocktails were delightful. The Bibb lettuce salad was quite nice if a bit salty. Our entrees were all very good, including the flatiron steak, pork chop with sauerkraut, Cobe, and a cheeseburger. We simply could not have had dessert though they looked wonderful. Our waiter, Alex, was very good. The wait staff was a bit overzealous in removing plates so that we had to ask for additional plate for shared appetizers and one drink was removed before it was finished. But, overall, an exceptional dining experience!
The experience was wonderful. The food was great and the service shines. This is a perfect place for any special occasion.
We've been meaning to go to La Petite Grocery because we had heard nothing but good things about it. Finally, the occasion arrived (birthday) that warranted a nice meal out. First of all, the ambiance and service were phenomenal. I had the blue crab beignets to start - which I highly recommend (even my vegetarian boyfriend tried a bite because the batter was so well done). We also ordered the butternut squash ravioli, which was slightly too al dente for our preference. Followed by the pork chops (VERY well cooked), grits (slightly too runny), mac n cheese (delicious), and ricotta dumplings (loved the texture). The desserts were the highlight of the meal - GET THE BUTTERSCOTCH PUDDING! We also tried the honey pear galette and the creme brulee, both tasty, but the BUTTERSCOTCH PUDDING WAS TO DIE FOR!
Disappointed by the raw tomatoes in the Fried Green Tomato Sandwich! Came here for lunch during my visit to New Orleans and was very disappointed. The waitress was a bit annoyed that we couldn't hear her talk yet the restaurant was noisy. We ordered the crab beignets which were very good but I ordered the lunch special which was a fried green tomato sandwich and the tomato was absolutely raw and cold. I truly should have sent it back. I also found the lunch options to be very limited. My daughter had the shrimp and grits and the grits were a bit greasy. given the numerous options in New Orleans I don't think I will be going back.
Excellent service. Save room for homemade ice cream.
The food was excellent. We got a great variety of appetizers and entrees and everything was excellent, gourmet excellent but in a casual/nice environment, chic, current....I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone and anyone!
I was terribly disappointed by this dinner. I’m not sure where the people who have given 4+ stars typically eat, but this place doesn’t come close to meeting my expectations. The ambiance in the dining room was nice, not too loud and service was prompt. But the ladies restroom was very dirty. The sink surround had a filthy buildup that looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in weeks.
And the food was terrible! I sent my side of mac & cheese back because it was so dry I couldn’t eat it; they brought out a creamier version but the pasta was then so undercooked it was still crunchy and the flavor was bad. Ultimately I couldn’t eat it at all. The dessert was also underwhelming.
Drinks were OK but nothing special. I do not recommend dining here for dinner.
Food was fantastic! Would definitely go back! Delish!
The ravioli appetizer was scrumptious and would do for a entree with salad. Yummy. I had the rabbit, it was good but the sautéed spinach had a very strong taste (lemon?) that conflicted with the other milder ingredients. When I asked the server, she didn’t know nor seemed interested in inquiring. Not a very warm or interacting personality, but did her job.
Visited here while in New Orleans at the recommendation of others who had dined here. Excellent menu with tasty dishes. Craft cocktail list is also fun and creative. Service was impeccable.
On a scale of a 1-5 stars, this place is at least a 7! Have read about this place for 3-4 years, and finally had a chance to go - which was at brunch. Wow! It absolutely exceeded ALL expectations! Started with the deviled blue crab beignets w/malt vinegar aioli - mouth watering and unlike anything I have ever tasted. My wife had the panéed rabbit and I had the waffle. Neither of us had ever had rabbit and it was gourmet and tasty. The buttermilk waffle was thick and airy - so relatively light if you can believe this, and it included vanilla cut almonds on top. Finished with some excellent coffee, and started with some great mimosas! Saying this place is excellent is an understatement; go! It is a little pricey, but so worth it!
I thought the ambience was nice, though it was quite loud, and the one person in our group with a hearing aid was left out of the conversations. The service was a bit inattentive and cool, and the food, so-so. According to one of us, the duck leg confit was too salty to eat, and even her halophile husband agreed. Though I dislike sushi and undercooked fish, I would have to say that my fish was really overcooked and tough. Another of our party had the sweetbread, which she claimed to be overcooked and tough as well. The desserts were unremarkable.
My brother and I had a fantastic meal. The quality of the food was simply outstanding. The service was top notch.
So impressed with the excellent, attentive service here, the beautiful atmosphere, and the fantastic food.
We had the pork chops and the Gulf shrimp & grits. Service was super fast, our food was delicious, and so were our cocktails (highly recommend the Blood Oath).
I had eaten here in December and decided to take some friends back over the weekend. The quality of the food and service was still very good; however, the execution was a bit off. All of our entrees arrived less than hot. We didn't complain as we still enjoyed it, but that seems like a simple thing to improve for a restaurant of this caliber.
Loved the food! Crab beignets were the best food in NOLA so far !
