The Nest is Intimate and Romantic

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 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 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

We visited The Nest while in Fredericksburg for the weekend. The food away awesome! The stuffed shrimp appetizer was amazing! The homemade bread was a nice touch. The scallops and steak were both fresh and tasty! The homemade ice cream was nice and light- liked the lavender! Great place for a romantic dinner!

Nest is a gem hidden in plain sight, and the culinary crown of Fredericksburg with a wine list to match. Our dishes were perfectly prepared from top quality ingredients and served with attentive care. The most delightfully memorable New Year's Eve dinner anywhere in a very long time. Don't miss Nest if you're in the vicinity of Fredericksburg.

Elegant homelike atmosphere with exceptional food imaginatively presented. The men ate the rack of lamb; the women the scallops. We shared the escargot appetizer (grilled and served in a martini glass) and a dessert. Every morsel was delicious. Our waiter was a friend of the chef who was "helping out." He was a gem. Highly recommend this restaurant assuming the... More

We didn't expect to find a food lover's dream in a little house in the middle of Texas Hill Country. The portions were big, the meat tender and cooked to perfection, the vegetables crisp tender, the potatoes creamy and rich, the soup and salad fresh, and the deserts... I think we died and went to heaven! Then there's the staff.... More

We would definitely go again. Service was great, food superb. I had the 1/2 chicken and it could have served two. Homemade bread and fabulous flan for dessert.
