We ended up at the Nest from a recommendation. Cute, little house. Food was excellent! I had the scallops and my husband had the rack of lamb. Both were tasty and cooked to perfection! My only suggestions would be to serve the mashed potatoes aside from the lamb as the juices from the lamb turned them into a watery mush.... More

We had one of the last seatings of the evening and were treated like queens! The food was delicious, even if they didn't have lamb chops that night! We never felt rushed even though we were the last people in the restuaruant. Everyone was so polite and pleasant. We will certainly be back.

As noted by others, the food and service are exquisite in this elegant but homey small restaurant. Best is that portions are just right. A diner can enjoy a complete dining experience: appetizer , entree, and desert, accompanied by drinks. Yes, it's pricy -- but worth it!

My wife and I came to fredericksburg for her birthday from Austin. We ordered the shrimp and grilled snails as appetizers and they were good! What really stood out were the racks of lamb as our entrees! Having gone to culinary school and cooking in some top restaurants, I can honestly say the lamb is TOP NOTCH! Perfectly cooked med...

Dining here felt like dining in someone's home. The town had been very crowded all day, but the atmosphere at the restaurant was calm and tranquil, even though it was quite full. The food was excellent, as was the service.

The little house was cute, a bit homey. Food was good, not exceptional, especially at the price point. Do NOT sit in the bar area, ask for a table by a window in the front. Shockingly, a small well vodka tonic was $10. NO Texas wines on wine list – a big disappointment in "wine country", especially for those of... More

WHAT a find! Spectacular service, supreme food, and very pleasant setting! The appetizer was a cucumber soup - YUM! My wife had pan-seared sea scallops and I had stuffed salmon fillet. The food was to die for! After hitting a local hang-out, we returned for dessert, which was homemade Mexican chocolate ice cream. This place is definitely a return visit... More

Tried out The Nest on a slow Thursday and it was a real find. Tried the salmon and tilapia and we would rate them as good as we have ever tasted, ever! Very quiet, romantic dinner.

Delicious food attractively presented in generous portions. Work up an appetite and save room for superb hand crafted desserts! Carefully selected wine list and full bar. We enjoyed the conversation with other guests in the quiet atmosphere, and the knowledgeable staff.
