Our party of four enjoyed our dinner at The Nest on New Year's Eve. We knew beforehand that the prices were on the high end for Fredericksburg. We had a reservation and were seated after a 10-minute wait while tables were rearranged. The oyster appetizer was delicious, as were the salads and entrees (steak, and 3 fish dishes). My only negative comment would be that the entrees were inordinately slow to arrive after our salad dishes were cleared away -- perhaps the kitchen was slow due to the night being New Year's Eve. I definitely recommend The Nest for a fine-dining experience.
