I loved this charming & recommended restaurant on Magazine Street. There are a multitude of excellent restaurants on this street alone so if heading this way, make La Petite Grocery one of them.

Exquisite food! The crab beignets are divine. Our crême fraiche salad dressing was so delicate and well-balanced I will be craving it forever. The decor is lovely, service was charming. I can't wait to be back!

Always good and sometimes great, very solid to outstanding performer. Good wait staff, can be nice outside in good weather, and good bar. Food always very good.

Lovely restaurant with excellent service, an all around wonderful dining experience. We had a late reservation on a Saturday night, it was pouring rain outside and we were given a spacious booth, where the waiter encouraged my husband and I to sit next to each other (as opposed to across). It was a nice treat and made the evening feel... More

They still kick butt! Food is prepared with passion and creativity. The atmosphere, inviting even though the volume in this restaurant is very loud. the servers are adequate....not 5 star service but fine. They offer a very small menu that can be a turn off but I actually like it because it changes on a regular basis. From soup to... More

I made a reservation to dine on a Thursday night and when we arrived I was seated in this hallway area when you first come in which really had no atmosphere at all. I tried the shrimp and grits which had zero flavor, my husband had a beef dish which was average. The dessert menu is terrible. The portions are... More

My husband and I had the best meal we've had in NOLA at La Petite Grocery...and that's saying a lot! He was born in New Orleans and we're both from Louisiana. We haven't lived there for almost 9 years, but going back to visit was a treat when we entered this restaurant. The crab beignets were to die for! We... More

Nikki served our group of eight and made our lunch on this Magazine Street corner so delightful. We tried many of the dishes that aren't served in too many other New Orleans restaurants, and everything from the scallops to pickles to butterscotch pudding lived up to the raves we had heard about La Petite Grocery.

Really enjoyed the food. We went during the geriatric hour for dinner during Essence music fest and it was perfect. The food was well executed and perfect in its simplicity. That's not to say it wasn't imaginative. It's to say that they took the simple and made it imaginative and taste damn good. We need to get out of there... More

My husband and I had our favorite meal in New Orleans at LPG. Starting at the bar will be rewarded. Fantastic cocktails, out of this world meals, wonderful ambiance. There are plenty of meals that are more expensive than one you'll get from LPG and dinner or lunch will not be cheap, but for our money, LPG is the best... More
