The Nest is located in a historic house that has about four seating areas. We did make a reservation a day in advance to be sure to get the time we wanted. I was impressed with the selection of wines you would normally only see in large restaurants with the wine cellars. The menu was unique as well. It was... More

My wife and I went to The Nest after checking its website. We had one of the best meals I can remember. It's a converted house so there is a lot of atmosphere. This is now on our list of mandatory things to do when we return to Fredericksburg.

My husband and I have been here for dinner a few times. I always have the roast chicken with mashed potato--very delicious. My husband also, except one time he very much enjoyed the lamb. The restaurant is a converted home, I think. White table cloths, candles, original art on the walls. Very nice.

Excellent food in a cozy home converted to accommodate quiet dining. Make reservations to dine here! A bit pricey for a small town, but the food and service were worth it.

Hidden inside this small older house less than a mile from downtown is a chef and staff that are sure to create a wonderful evening. A full bar plus reasonably priced wine list started us off well. That night's soup was an onion soup that rivals any I've ever had or made myself in a portion size that will amaze... More

Tonight we dined at this wonderful restaurant. The atmosphere was very upscale for what I used to think of as just a little hill county town my family was from. It's grown into so much more and The Nest is indicative of the palate of tastes that has developed in this town. Fresh flavors and hill country wines pair for... More

The Nest has a limited menu but this was not a problem since this was our first time there. The shrimp appetizer was amazing! Never had anything like it! I had the filet and my girlfriend had the shrimp meal. Both were amazing! The sorbet desert was a winner as well. It is a pricey restaurant but great for a... More

My husband and I haven't been to Fredericksburg in 3 years and our first stop was The Nest! Just as amazing as it was 3 years ago if not BETTER! We started off with the AMAZING shrimp appetizer and I had the special soup "French Onion". It was flawless! We each enjoyed a martini while enjoying each others company in... More

The Nest is all you'd expect from an old charming home turned into a wonderful fine dining restaurant. The service, atmosphere and food is exceptional! The wine list is superb! Put it on your MUST place for a romantic dinner for 2 or even 4.

Unexpected surprise. We have been going to Fredericksburg for many years and the downfall was always quality restaurants. If you don't believe me, look at the top 10 Trip Advisor restaurants in Fredericksburg! Terrible, and embarrassing! But the nest is treat. Small, quaint, old home setting. Excellent food (we has quail and scallops, both excellent), good service, moderately priced wine... More
