Hard to believe this restaurant has gotten good reviews. Our dinners ranged from over cooked to tasteless. Appetizers only fair. Dining room was empty from 7:00-9:00, which should have been a tip-off. Staff was friendly but service was slow, particularly given the fact there may...More

We had dinner here on Valentine's day and so had only the Prix Fixe menu to choose from. Food was tasty and not your typical fare, which I appreciate.

I absolutely love terrapin! All of the ingredients are from local farms and that makes everything fresh and healthy. I am really picky and it is the only place ANYWHERE that I will get a burger. I mostly go to the bistro but the more...More

We have only positive comments to share...food was wonderful and the service (Patrick was our server) was delightful! If you love lamb chops...the mini lamb chops with chimichurri sauce are delightful!

Certainly not top notch. Ordered a hamburger and fries. Waited quite a while to get a lukewarm burger ( not cooked as ordered) and cold, not freshly prepared french fries. Why open business if a satisfactory standard of food and promptness can't be provided? Just...More

Servers were nice but severely lacking in the knowledge and even basic wine service departments. food was unimpressive, seemed like an afterthought. Cute ambiance. Really surprised it's ranked #3 in town when it was the worst of all the meals we had in Rhinebeck.

Food made by graduate of the Culinary Institute in Hyde Park. Dishes are incredible. It is a little pricey but well worth the experience.
