On Saturday, May 16, 2020, we re-opened the dining room for dinner service in abidance with the City and State Safe Opening Guidelines. Reservations are preferred. Come dine in this beautifully restored Uptown restaurant on Magazine Street and enjoy James Beard Award Winning Chef Justin Devillier's contemporary Louisiana Cuisine.

The La Petite Grocery name pays homage to the history of its home, a building that’s stood for more than a century. The original structure was built in the late 1800s and called the Central Tea, Coffee and Butter Depot. In 1908, a fire devastated the space and it was transformed into a full service grocery store. Later it was most notably a fine foods and butcher shop, VonderHaar’s Fine Foods until 1982. When La Petite Grocery opened in March of 2004, they similarly aspired to provide the neighborhood with exotic teas, locally roasted coffee, and fresh produce. By doing this, we hope to provide a dining experience that evokes nostalgia of old New Orleans.

The food was wonderful as always. We were pleased to see that they take the state mandates seriously with regards to wearing a face mask, disinfecting tables and chairs, changing table cloths between seatings and spaced out seating. There will ofcourse be the few patrons who mind the mask mandate to eat and walk through the restaurant to the restroom yet walk through the entire restaurant upon exiting with their mask off. This is not the restaurant staffs fault but upon exiting a quick reminder that it is courtesy to remember using a mask upon exiting may get those patrons to think twice at this and other restaurants.

Food was good, as always. Rabbit entree was disappointedly small. Honestly, when it came to the table, I thought it was an appetizer and not an entree. I asked the server if that was the right dish, she was dismissive and unconcerned. I didn't see the fingerling potatoes as described on the menu, because they were buried under the sauerkraut. If the chef is going to skimp on the rabbit, at least load up the plate with the (inexpensive) starch so my husband has enough to eat. That was a mis-step by the kitchen and the server.

Our service on this visit was by far he worst I have seen at La Petite. A full hour before our waffle, BLT and steak and eggs were brought to our table. No service, and yet the table next to ours had two servers in constant support. I can only assume they were someone very famous that I didn't know. I have always been impressed by the service here, but this visit was extremely disappointing. Even my wife, who I have never heard complain, expressed shock at the ridiculously slow service. Then as a kind of spike at the end of the meal, The manager and waiter brought this other table free desserts, I guess, because they had such quick service that the meal had gone by too quick.

Decided it was time for a nice night out again. All the food was terrific, though maybe just a few dollars overpriced for the value. One dish never made it to the table when we ordered; and when it finally arrived it was hurrily charred to a crisp. They offered to comp it right away though, and accidents happen. Overall, really lovely and Chuck was an friendly and enthusiastic server!

This was our first time to LPG and I can say with 100% certainty that we will be back!
I make a point to have shrimp and grits anywhere I can find it, as it’s one of my favorite dishes, and the version at LPG is unlike any other I’ve ever had. The flavors are outstanding and unique. I’m sure my husband was tired of hearing me rave about it by the end of our meal!

And if you have a sweet tooth, do yourself a favor and get the snowball. It was absolutely fantastic!

Can’t wait for my next visit!

Had Ryan as my server! He was amazing and super nice to talk too! I had gotten the LA waygu sirloin! Different from what I had before. Before it came with carrots and that special sliced potatoes thing. Came out completely different, I was shocked! Came with onions and potatoes and also had a different sauce too😬 But it was so freaking good though! Kinda actually liked the new way, just wasn’t expecting it. Overall, I will continue to come to La Petite

The atmosphere is superb. I was lucky to have a table in the window —second choice to the bar ( no seating yet).
Baby lettuces, ricotta dumplings with smokey tomato sauce( I prefer spinach), and grilled asparagus. Healthy but not filling. Would love to see more pescatarian / vegetarian dishes.
Request Ryan as your server— very upbeat and entertaining

Food was mediocre at best. Scallop dish only contained 3, yes 3 small scallops. Outrageous. The dish smelled fishy when it was served.

Even with coronavirus precautions in place, the experience felt like any other special night out prior to the pandemic. We were offered a full menu and weren’t rushed. The meal was outstanding and had a hard time deciding on our favorite part. Definitely recommend the blue crab beignets and the butterscotch pudding. We had the rabbit and the scallops, both excellently done. Looking forward to going to returning for other items on the menu.

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, La Petite Grocery showed how to reintroduce in house dining at it's best. Every precaution was performed with our safety and theirs in mind.
Many thanks to Chef Justin and his staff, especially Holley, for a wonderful experience.
Our Anniversary dinner was truly memorable.
