we all had the lamb and our plates were all empty at the end....compliments to the chef, and the vegetables that came with the dish were delicious. Our waitress gave us great service and wow she also made our martinis and they were perfect!

My husband and I are never disappointed with The Nest. The snails, something I thought I would hate, were so delicious and pretty. The salad was light and refreshing but the scallops were heavenly. I also love lavender and so I just had to have the lavender ice cream. Nice way to end our meal. The staff was courteous and... More

Since then we've visited a few times...the last was under-whelming and the staff seem unimpressed that we were married in their dining room and held our reception here. Disappointing, but perhaps they changed ownership hands. Still, while we weren't expecting anything "free", a simple enthusiastic response would have gone pretty far. The only reason that I gave them a "very... More

The menu is expensive but the food is prepared with great skill and finesse. There is a bit of an ostentatious attitude about the place, but perhaps they earn the right to that because the place is unique. They hadn't solved a silly little problem with the music which, well chosen and pleasant, would play the same track over and... More

Yes... YES! So much to love about Nest. Where to start. The location is a little cottage right off of Washington Street. You will blow by it and not even realize there is bunch of great food, just waiting for your attention. Slow down and turn into the parking lot. I would also make sure you have a reservation, since... More

We went to this restaurant with friends--there were a total of four in our group. The restaurant is in a 20th century home with hardwood floors and a cozy, romantic atmosphere! Three of us had a scallops and one had a red fish! All four dinners were absolutely fabulous! I would have to say that this was the best dinner... More

Have been visiting Fredericksburg for last 15 years, and NEVER miss eating at The Nest. The food is always fresh and delicious , atmosphere is relaxing. Good for couples and groups.

The restaurant's location in an early 20th century home provides for an intimate dining experience. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. We were there on a slow Thursday night so the waitress had time to not only tend to our food needs but to visit with us as well. The food was absolutely amazing. I want to go back to... More

Saturday night reservations. We were seated next to the busy kitchen door and told the restaurant was fully booked. Once we were settled with drinks and bread they did offer to move us but we decided not to. Service was listless and unconcerned. Food was slow arriving, maybe due to huge crash we heard in the kitchen that was then... More
