Outstanding food and service at this small restaurant in downtown Rhinebeck. I'd say my appetizer of portobello mushroom with shrimp, goat cheese, and pesto was among the best apps. I've ever had. All of the food we ordered came with a lovely presentation, generous portions, and very reasonable price. Wine by the glass was equally generous and reasonable. The service... More

We're repeat visitors to Calico and always receive attentive and friendly service, delicious food, and a choice of pastries that can't be beat in taste and creativity. I usually choose a beef or seafood main course and if offered as a special, my husband savors every bite of his favorite rack of lamb. This small restaurant has never disappointed us.... More

My wife had the gnocchi and it was amazing. They have a ton of desserts to choose from and the two we picked we excellent. I... More

This is 'our' place to celebrate. We're greeted like family, the ambience is tasteful and restful, the food is prepared with care and subtlety, the offerings are always fresh and interesting and we have an opportunity to indulge in some of the best pastry in the Hudson Valley - probably the Eastern Seaboard.

We wanted a nice dinner on our way south from Albany. Through Tripadvisor, we found Calico. It's small, about 7 tables, but not at all cramped! The food all had depth and complexity. The escargot wasn't just some butter and garlic puddle. Herbs and spices, and soft escargot were perfect. Entrees were also complex and very interesting. NO boring food... More

Delicious dinner and dessert with excellent service and a great atmosphere! I had the flat iron steak and it was perfectly cooked. Each course was well-paced and delicious, with homemade bread and a great complimentary salad starting off the meal. Make sure you save plenty of room for dessert and coffee/tea! All desserts are made right on premises by Leslie... More

For fine dining in Rhinebeck Village I have always made Calico my first choice. In its cozy intimate setting I share superb dinners with friends in a relaxed atmosphere, receiving attentive and friendly service. From appetizer (please do not skip the appetizers) to entree to dessert there is consistent gastronomic delight. And I haven't even mentioned the award winning garlic... More

Wonderful place for lunch or an afternoon tea and scone. Food was well presented and excellent. You will want to take some extra baked goods home!

Food was excellent. I really enjoyed the flat iron steak. We also had two specials, rack of lamb and salmon. They were also delicious. The desserts are heavenly. Service was excellent too and pace was good. Excellent value especially compared to the other over priced restaurants in Rhinebeck. Owners take great pride and it shows.
