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

Been coming here for years, mostly to hang out in the bistro after a show, but just recently had a romantic dinner in the Dining Room area, lovingly decked out for Christmas. Excellent tapas, very good service (a red wine recommended was wonderful) and a superb venison bolognese. They partner with local farms, which is a big plus. Highly recommended.

This is one of Rhinebeck's premier restaurant, according to TripAdvisor's own website. This, in addition, to the food options, is why we choose this restaurant. We wanted to try some Mediterranean style food that has a Spanish flair since the menu included "tapas" style food. To start, I looked at the menu and the food options seemed good and then... More
