Chef Justin Devillier has transformed a neighborhood grocery store into an incredibly charming restaurant with incredible food and remarkable service. Lacking pretension, the decor and staff at once make you feel you have to a place where you can relax and enjoy a good time with great food; you are not disappointed. Everything on the menu is tantalizing, as too... More

We had a great final lunch in New Orleans at La Petite Grocery. It's not a quick meal.. they definitely take their time through the drinks then appetizers then entrees... so be aware of that. We were there for a good 2 hours, which was nice, since we had a lot of time and catching up to do. I think... More

First of all, I always request a table away from the door and heavy foot traffic. We were granted our request and were seated in a banquette (for 4), so we had a little more room than the usual banquette for 2 people. We opted to choose share 3 small plates and one entree and that was perfect. The beef... More

We went on a friend's recommendation. The food was a little above average though I ordered a burger with no onions but received them anyway. The parking at lunch is a nightmare. I doubt I'd go back. Cochon and Root are much better.

Expected a seamless meal, but had multiple little problems, which by themselves wouldn't have led to this rating. The dinner special, which wasn't on the menu, was wildly overpriced, above anything on the menu. It didn't occur to me that I'd have to ask the price, since I'd assume a piece of snapper with a few vegetables under it would... More

Food was excellent, service was good, but it was a bit noisy. Not enough so that we didn't enjoy the meal, but if you want conversation without lip-reading you might want to choose a different restaurant.

We were disappointed with the restaurant. Our waiter just wasn't great, initially seemed impatient but did get a little better. The food was OK but there are so many great places to eat in NOLA not sure we'd go back.

Service was perfect. Food was superb! I have Celiac Disease so I have to be careful with eating at restaurants, and our waiter was very familiar with what I can eat, and very familiar with the menu & their ingredients. His recommendations were perfect. Great wine selection, too!

The food is amazing and creative but the place is really loud and crowded. Service was slow. Food is worth it but with those drawbacks.
