Five star experience

Perfect dinner for a date! The food was excellent, prepared so that we could truly savor each bite. Wine recommendations were spot on and the desserts were exquisite. Sarah Bernhardts are worth their weight in gold! Prices very reasonable for such a high quality experience. We will be back!

Our group of 6 had a delicious meal here, even better than our meal at the Culinary Institute! I ordered the monkfish--the sauce was flavorful and fish was perfectly cooked. Both owners are chefs; one is a pastry chef, and desserts were a treat. Service was beyond excellent and the owner watches over everything to make sure your needs are... More

Recently, we enjoyed a luscious and worthwhile special tasting event hosted by the owners of Calico in Rhinebeck. The evening revolved around Leslie Balassone's incredible desserts, sparking wines from the Trump Winery, and an auction--with all proceeds going to support the Eric Trump Foundation's efforts to raise funds for the benefit of the St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. During the... More

The event consisted of five courses of desserts prepared by Leslie Balassone which were all fantastic. They were complimented by Trump Wines with each course.

Small but not crowded, windows on the center of town to watch the world go by, attentive but low key service, and the service is top rate. Your questions, and requests for recommendations are welcomed. The wait staff, and the co owner are often about, but never intrusive. This place is owned by a married couple of two Culinary graduates... More

This place focuses on quality and consistency and you can definitely see it. Both lunch and dinner have a lot of variety in the menu and the soups are always excellent. If you are looking for a nice quiet and romantic place for dinner this is definitely the place to go. The pastries are also wonderful and there is so... More

My favorite place to go for lunch/brunch. By far the best omelette I've ever had! It's a small restaurant with a nice cozy feel. Fantastic food, fantastic desserts, and all around a great experience. The chef and pastry chef are super consistent with their food/desserts. It is always a perfect meal!
