Everything was delicious. The mussels were perfectly prepared, sweet and tender and lots of them. The duck was very good as was the veal. Creme brûlée and profiteroles topped off our dinner. A nice red wine went nicely. They have recently enlarged the restaurant ,...More

We were not able to reserve a table so we ate at the bar in the original restaurant. They expanded this summer and added a very cool bar and more table seating. We were comfortable there and the food was excellent. I had a delicious...More

The potato gnocchi with local mushrooms was the best we've ever had. The pork schnitzel was crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Our server was charming and experienced. So what's the problem? Le Petite Bistro has always had the best food in...More

We've been going to Petit Bistro for years as our fallback restaurant. We count on it for its ambiance, professional staff, and reliably fine food. We are never disappointed. We've not yet tried its new incarnation with expanded room, but our friends say the essentials...More

We were so excited to go after the expansion of the restaurant. We were highly disappointed. The service was disjointed to say the least and the restaurant noisier than before. The appetizers were the best part of the entire meal, we had pate and clams...More

Le Petit Bistro took over the old smoke shop at the corner in Rhinebeck. Cleaned it up, expanded their long standing restaurant and it is now a great destination. We had a very nice visit last night, fresh oysters, and a wonderful location. We'll be...More

While on holiday in the Hudson valley area drove a considerable distance to try this recently expanded restaurant, no longer as "petit" having doubled in size. The new annex has awful design, with heavy sidewalk tables with cast iron bases pushed up against built-in settees....More

The atmosphere is vibrant . The service was excellent. We split the pate which was "yummy". All entries come with a very fresh salad. I had the veal which was very tender and my husband had a wonderful tasting steak.

Bring a megaphone if you sit in the new area. It is so loud you can barely hear the person across from you.
