We ate at this restaurant because of a friend's referral. The food was excellent, the ambiance was charming and service was just right. Be sure to make reservations.

We were 10 min early for our 6pm reservation and were told the server (older lady-owner I think) will get to us when she can since she was taking care of a large party. I guess one has to be exactly on time there. A slab of butter on a plate was on every table. I don't know how long... More

A slightly limited menu (vegetarians should check with the staff first), but some gourmet dishes on offer and a very good selection of wines. We both decided to try a chicken dish and were delighted with both the taste and quality.

The atmosphere was very nice and the service was excellent. The food was WONDERFUL... I had the fish and others in my group ordered a variety of different... More

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
