We were able to get a reservation rather easily on a Saturday night and had a lovely birthday dinner. The decor in the back dining room was clean and modern. Looked like it had been recently decorated? I had the yellow snapper, and my husband had the short ribs. We had heard from someone to ask what entrees were still... More

We eat here several times a year, and have never had a meal that let us down. Everybody is friendly and helpful. Love the lamb. Enjoy bringing friends from out of town. Parking can be a pain, but usually find a space within a block or so.

We visited friends in Fredericksburg and met them at this restaurant. It was a very good choice. No it was an excellent choice. The food was very good. The live jazz was terrific. I highly recommend it.

This restaurant can always be counted on to serve an excellent meal. Whether a business lunch, or a couples dinner, or lunch with a friend, you will not be disappointed. Many of us that have gone to this restaurant for years have their favorite meals. Mine is the scrod with rice and beans and a Caesar salad on the side.... More

This restaurant located centrally in the tourist area of the Olde Town district of the city is lovely. It has a nicely appointed dining room as well as some private rooms and a fine bar. The food is excellent with many choices for the lunch we had. My wife had a lovely tomato salad while my crab cake sandwich was... More

We ate at La Petite during restaurant week. The wording on "Restaurant Weeks" flyer states " There are 17 participating, independent restaurants in this year's Restaurant Week program all with 2 for $20.00 specials." So one would expect 2 for $20. Well this restaurant interprets this to mean 1 entree and choice of appetizer or dessert for $20 each. Realizing... More

I have eaten here many times and the food is always fabulous. This time we didn't get to find out. Made a reservation and they seated us at a wonderful outside table for two. There were tables for two on each side of us. All was well until there were three people at one of the tables who had clearly... More

This restaurant is absolutely the best in Fredericksburg. The authentic French cuisine, the ambiance, THE WINES!!!!! All price ranges and I and a lot of my friends go for lunch a lot. They have live music on Wednesday nights and on other weekends. Ask for Jim as your waiter!!!!!! It's wonderful!

One of the best meals I have had recently and definitely ever had in Fredericksburg. The wait staff was charming (and provided a pashmina for a fellow diner as we were under the A/C unit). The food was absolutely delicious and the wine list very good. Don't miss it!
