The food is just excellent, the chef is obviously a world-class pro. The service was well, bizarre. Our waitress was extremely dramatic, acting super-over taxed even with just a few people in the restaurant. Another woman (the manager?) kept calling her away from our table when we were in the middle of a sentence. The two of them made a... More

My husband and I had dinner in early November. My husband ordered the soup of the day which was cheese. It had a nice zing to it. Our main courses came with a salad of mixed greens, cinnamon & clove pecans, feta, sliced sayote and a sweet vinaigrette. They were delicious. My husband ordered the scallops with chipoltle lime sauce.... More

In a small house cozy and intimate feeling, great way to end our great time in Fredericksburg. We met the owner of 20 years in stopping by to check the place out. Very welcoming, a good table and easy service. Grilled snails sounded strange but were really good. Everything else very good and a white tablecloth nice experience in the... More

Four of us went here for dinner, and maybe our expectations were too high, but we all came away quite disappointed. The set-up of the restaurant is quite strange - we were in one of the front rooms, and were on our own all night, even though we saw other couples enter the restaurant. It meant there was a distinct... More

We were visitors to Fredericksburg, not regulars, but we did not feel very welcome or valued. Very poor table, good view of kitchen, not sure I wanted to see that! Slow, inattentive service. Ordered a bottle of wine, server never came back to refill glasses. Server was busy, but never asked if food was okay, if we needed anything, never... More

We enjoyed our evening spent at the Nest. It is a cute house turned into a picturesque and elegant restaurant with local art on display. The service was excellent. Our server was well educated on the light menu and very friendly. The food came quickly and was prepared quite wonderfully. We are seafood lovers so we both thoroughly liked the... More

Great special occasion restaurant. The meals were all beautifully prepared. The vegetables were cooked perfectly, not over done, as were the meats. The Rack of lamb received rave reviews, as did the scallops. For dessert try the lime sorbet.

First time here but won't be the last. We dined with friends and everyone enjoyed the food, wine, service and atmosphere. The stuffed salmon was very good. The servers were very attentive and helpful with the varied menu.

Quaint old house turned restaurant, great service, excellent meal. Portions are more than plenty, my stuffed chicken was 1/2 a chicken, hubby had the lamb chops - there was a rack of 8! Both were delicious as was the profiterole dessert with coffee ice cream, nice glass of local wine completed our meal. Highly recommended.
