We went to dinner as a fairly large group (11 of us). The menu was diverse and everyone enjoyed their meal. The waiter was fairly unpleasant and really made no effort to be nice or accommodating. That's the only thing that kept me from giving this restaurant the highest marks. Some highlights: The Smoked Salmon Duo with Betty Poole’s Red... More

It has been my loss to have waited so long to return to this fine establishment. The service was thoughtful and spot on; the food superbly created and displayed. I won't make the same mistake of waiting to go back. It was a lovely evening, thanks to the fine staff.

Although the restaurant was 'a little drafty', the martini and malbec helped me warm up. My filet was delicious, as were the scalloped potatoes and the snap peas. However, the highlight was the coffee gelato and the Tia Maria neat. Jim was very observant, and I would make a return visit.

We were a group of five who ordered five different meals. Everyone absolutely loved what they ordered, which doesn't happen very often. Usually there is one that is disappointing. Wine, appetizers and desserts were also great. The service was wonderful and made it a very special dinner for my mother's birthday. Recommend stuffed shrimp, rockfish, tuna, pasta and steak!

We have dinner at La Petite a couple of times a year. It's probably our favorite restaurant in Fredericksburg. This review is based solely on our most recent experience - Christmas Eve (something we do every year). Maybe not next year, however. Waitress was lovely, but service very slow. I believe we waited 30 minutes for our entrees to appear... More

We were first seated at a small table built for 1 and 1/2 humans wedged uncomfortably tight between two other four tops. The hostess was kind enough to find a better table for us. We started with the Mussels Auberge topped with a marinara sauce cooked with some bacon. We then had a Caesar's salad prepared table side. One of... More

They take reservations, greet you upon arrival and seat you within a few minutes. Most of the service is fantastic. One or two attractive servers are caught up in their own reverie, so fail to meet basic service. Food is above average when you order off the regular menu. If you order off the early bird menu, it's hit or... More

The sandwiches are great! They use fresh ingredients to complement the meats and the sauces are very tasty. They have a good selection of vines. The service is prompt and very friendly.

Arrived this evening in time for our reservations at 7 pm. We are now in our car at 9 pm after being served nothing more than bread and wine - while the kitchen it backed up. When asked about the opportunity of our meal - no answer could be provided. Our romantic holiday dinner - planned and anticipated - a... More
