We're regulars @ the Bistro, but this was only my second visit to the dining room. In a nutshell, this was one of the best meals I've had in the area. Our party of 4 thought all aspects of our dinner were excellent - from cocktails to dessert. A fig, brie & shallot quesadilla appy could of been a small... More

Took a day trip from Ct up to Rhinebeck. After a short hike to the top of Burger Hill to enjoy the view, we ended up downtown. Walked around, saw Terrapin. Went in and checked out the menu. Looked good. Drinks were delicious - cactus margarita & sauternes margarita. Food was very good as well. Started with small tapas -... More

Perfect place for meeting family during the Christmas season! This restaurant accommodated us by having great choices for vegetarians, vegans and meat eaters in our party! All the dishes were tasty, fresh and nicely presented. Service was efficient and the ambiance was lovely for the holidays! We all want to visit again!

I have been going to Terrapin for years. The food is consistently good, hot and the service friendly and quick. This is one of my favorite places to eat in Rhinebeck. The menu has vegan options as well as meat dishes. The food is fresh and supports local farmers.

We visited this restaurant for the first time the evening after Christmas. Our waiter was very personable with a great attitude. Our food was okay. It's been a few weeks ago since we've visited and I can't say that I was left with any wow factor, in fact I can't remember what we ordered.

Lovely restaurant with great food and cocktails. Very good service. A little pricey. The main dining room was nice but a little too serious, for a more relaxed atmosphere, go to the bar dining area.

New Year's Eve plans had to be changed last minute; Terrapin fortunately had an opening; the dinner beyond delicious, the service attentive, not intrusive; we travel far and wide, but sometimes miss what stares us in the face each day....that is Terrapin. How lucky are we that it is in our village. You will not be disappointed by dining on... More
