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. Reservations are preferred.

    We were in New Orleans to celebrate my husband, a fan of cajun and creole food. We sought out suggestions from family and friends. La Petite Grocery was highly recommended. We concur wholeheartedly. We enjoyed exceptional service from Jacob, mouth watering food from the blue crab beignets, seafood stew and the delicious butterscotch pudding and was capped off with the beautiful southern comfort feeling of the ambiance. We highly recommend this exceptional restaurant.

    This was our first time here. It compares very favorably with the other "white table cloth" restaurants we've been to in NOLA and elsewhere. The food was delicious, the service attentive but unobtrusive, the noise level moderate, and the overall ambience very nice.

    Took my husband to New Orleans for our first time for his 40th b-day. We celebrated Dinner at Le Petit Grocery. We absolutely loved it. The food and drinks were great. We thought it was decently priced for what we received, and when I booked via Open Table I informed them it was my hubby’s birthday.. they put a candle in his dessert. Totally unexpected and the perfect touch to a great evening. The blue crab beignets were amazing!

    My new favorite restaurant in New Orleans! The service was personalized and incredibly attentive. The food was phenomenal, every person in our party was beyond satisfied, the rabbit was divine! Only regret was that we came here our last night in New Orleans during a 3 week trip. If we knew how amazing the food was we would have dined here multiple times during our stay! Thank you La Petite Grocery :)

    Food here is good, but prices are too high. Tomato salad was tiny and way overpriced. Crab beignets were too small. Ambiance is great. Wine selection is wonderful.

    The service and food was spectacular. Everyone was very patient with all our questions about the menu and didn't make us feel any type of way. During peak dinner time, it was a bit loud but it's just because all the tables were full. Not sure if anything can really be done about that

    I got there early and was seated anyway. Got a drink and waited while I read the menu. I guess I could have used more attention to get drink#2 before everyone arrived but no biggie. We got pork belly and 2 orders of crab beignets for appetizers and they were terrific. The beignets are well-known to LPG customers and the pork belly was terrific— I got worried about the blend with fish sauce and kimchi but it worked really well with a little sweetness from the nuoc mam. We got rabbit, chicken, and shellfish stew for entrees— rabbit was adequate but not transcendent, the stew was tasty despite the broth’s description as fermented pepper broth, and the chicken stole the show with some kind of herbal taste that was really amazing. One misstep was that the black eyed peas in the stew were downright crunchy. That was an unpleasant surprise. For dessert we had butterscotch pudding rendered odd by the presence of country ham, chess pie made weird by having an overly smoked plank of ?toffee on it, and a chicory and chocolate ice cream/ganache that was excellent. The whole thing was $338 for 3 people with probably 6 or 7 drinks. My son got a homemade lemonade that was really weak and too sour for our tastes, so that was $6 that was not optimally spent. Service was competent and professional. The restaurant is loud (my wife has partial deafness) but bustling and active. I really love LPG and would come back any day.

    It was a shame that the rabbit main course came out of the kitchen cold. I had to flag down the server to have him return the plate to the kitchen.The next serving came out very hot and was a new plate not just warmed up. The place is small so the noise level was never out of control. 3.5/4 Syds.

    The food as expected was very good. I had the lamb, my brother the shrimp and grits. We each had apps, yellowfin tuna tartare for my brother, and blue crab beignets for me. The lamb was great. He seemed to like the shrimp and grits. The tuna was good but the blue crab was excellent. Really, really good. For dessert, I had a Muscadine grape dessert. Also really good. We sat outside. It was just fine, normal NOLA, but nothing special. Inside was nice, good ambience, but the A/C was too cold for the environment (not hot a humid outside) so we opted for outside. Inside if the climate was dialed right would be best for ambience, but outside was fine for us. I would go back.

    Small portions with big prices; Appetizers were very average- blue crab beignets were soggy and not a lot of flavor Seafood stew was tasty but portion size was very small. Service was disappointing for a restaurant with their reputation as being a Top 30 NOLA restaurant.
