We went to lunch on a Sat. It was a pleasant surprise that a table was available just two days before. First, the bread was delicious, comparable to our fav Italian place (Lucia) in Dallas. Crab Beignets were wonderful as everyone says. The grilled octopus wasn’t bad, but we have had better octopus. The sweet corn soup (special of the... More

Had a great dinner here - highly recommend this place. Tried the following: - Blistered Peppers to starts us off - fantastic (see photo) - Blue Crab Beignets to follow - out of this world! - I then had the Gulf Shrimp & Grits that also had shitake mushrooms - not sure it would work - but it certainly did...

Great spot for dinner or lunch. It's located on Magazine St near the cross with Napoleon in the heart of uptown and only a few minutes from my house in case you wanted to know. The dining room is elegant but you can still be casual in this uptown gem that has a large New Orleans style menu. Great brunch... More

Glad I was able to have the chance to eat dinner at La Petite Grocery. The food was outstanding and the service was top-notch. Our waitress, Jane, did her best to accomodate our every request and went above and beyond at every opportunity. We had a chance to meet the GM and Sous Chef while there and we were all... More

Wonderful "country" French cuisine in a relaxed bistro atmosphere. The cocktails are custom made and uniquely flavorful. The food is deliciously simple yet somehow haut French. The wine list is expertly assembled. I eat here often and I'm never disappointed.

The title says it all. My wife and I went here last night for our anniversary and I believe that it is the best meal that I have ever gone out and had. The appetizer that you have to get is the blue crab beignets! There are five to an order and they are perfect. I good amount of crab... More

My wife and I are Foodie-ish kinds of people. One of our hobbies is trying different restaurants, some upscale, in as many different cities as we can get to. We have high expectations and very specific taste. La Petite Grocery is exactly our kind of restaurant! We loved it. The dishes are expertly prepared, creative and nicely seasoned. This is... More

Came here with 8 other "ladies" for our last dinner out together in Nola. I ordered some crab beignets as an afterthought (we already had a round of apps on the table). The hens at the other end of the table got a taste and immediately ordered another plate. Served with a malt vinegar aioli they are easily the star... More

Ran in here during a rain shower at lunchtime. Restaurant was pretty full but I was alone, so I sat at the bar. Food was delicious - not huge plates but for me, portioned just right. Clever, creative, tasty. The bartender was great and the specialty cocktail she made me was perfect. I can't wait to head back...

A group of friends enjoyed a nice evening at La Petite Grocery. The atmosphere in this renovated corner grocery is elegant, but very comfortable. Service was impeccable. Our food choices included the crabmeat beignets appetizer which was a hit and a good dish to share out. Shrimp and grits were tasty, although a bit soupy for my taste. The fish... More
