Wonderful meal and waitstaff

We had a wonderful meal at the Nest. We were early, but they were ready and waiting. The wine was good, the food was better. I had the Red Fish, which I never had before and it was excellent. Didn't have dessert. Would go back in a flash.

We went to Nest restaurant on a Saturday night a last minute decision and more or less got the last table. We were shown promptly to our table. We decided not to have a starter as wanted to have a dessert instead and knew we couldn't manage 3 courses. I had lamb cooked medium, the portion was large and so... More

At the suggestion of our B&B host (Matt from Full Moon Inn), we dined here on a Sunday night. We were warmly greeted and taken to the front room of what used to be a near-town residence. The transition to cosy restaurant was beautifully done, using art from local galleries and nice linens on the tables. Every part of our... More

Best steak ever but poorest service. Ate there with our daughter from Austin easter weekend. Waitress unfriendly but loud and talkative with next table. Waited forty I minutes for ticket which was $225 for four. Will not go back

Have to agree with Alyssa T. We just walked in off the street.on a Sunday evening. Again the place was about 1/3 full. I truly believe they would just as soon we left. The French onion soup was not as good as Mimini's. The Lavender Carrot soup was a winner.And so it goes .Little overrated food and no warmth from... More

The Nest had great reviews from locals and TripAdvisor. It may have been an off night, but the service was poor (and it wasn't that busy). I expect much more from a restaurant that charges approx $30/plate. Our waitress ignored us a great deal, appeared irritated when asked a question, and was scarce overall. The restaurant was about 1/3 capacity... More

The Nest offers consistently excellent food. A knowledgeable staff can suggest the right wine pairing. Housed in an historic Fredericksburg Home, the Nest is a place to go for a very nice night out.

The restaurant was perfect. Across the street from our bed and breakfast. A comfortable environment for an upscale dinner. It was excellent. I had the satueed shrimp and the other diner had the steak. We both were highly satisfied with our meal, the attentiveness of the staff, and the excellent service.

My wife and I had a wonderful evening. The atmosphere was wonderful for a romantic dinner. It is an older house with separate rooms for dining so you have some privacy and the noise level is quiet enough to enjoy your conversation. The food was outstanding. I had the quail and my wife had the rack of lamb. Both were... More

We chose The Nest as our Valentine's dinner on a weekend getaway and it did not disappoint. The ambiance was lovely and service was excellent. We had the shrimp appetizer, which was incredible and we would have loved that dish alone as an entree portion. Then we had rack of lamb which had been recommended by our B&B hosts and... More
