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

This is a tablecloth restaurant and serves food to match, Most of the food on the menu is gluten-free and what we had was very good. They do not have a large commercial kitchen and everything is chief prepared. The seating capacity is small and reservations are a must. Call a week in advance if possible. It's worth the effort....

.....that Fredericksburg has to offer. We did an 8:00 reservation because we were told there were no earlier reservations, but when we got there the place was half empty. We were greeted warmly enough but the service was very slow. It took almost an hour to get our food. When it arrived, it was.....okay. Not bad, not stellar, just okay.... More

I ate at The Nest a number of years ago and after a long absence in Fredericksburg, I had to return to see if it lived up to my memory. The Nest absolutely did not disappoint. This is a small restaurant and reservations are a must. It was a little noisy the evening we were there, with a large group... More

We celebrated our 5th at the Nest and it was as excellent as ever. The older home which is it located in is divided into rooms so that the feel is small, intimate and cozy - perfect for a romatic evening. Food is an execellent as always. We'll be back next trip!

We visited the Nest last night for our anniversity. Here is my impressions: We had a bit of trouble finding it so we called them for directions and the young lady who answered the phone was completely incapable of helping us find the location. We eventually found it. The parking lot is a complete cluster-mess but we managed to find... More

The Rack of Lamb was tender and medium rare, the way I like it, and the veggies were wonderful and were properly seasoned. The scallops would melt in your mouth. Service was outstanding. If you go make a reservation, or you more than likely be turned away.
