We went as 2 couples for 2 big birthdays. The dinner was great in every way! Caring, enthusiastic service. Superb food. A warm, intimate, elegant environment. Perfect location. Recommend without any reservations (pun intended but actually you probably need a reservation.) Seriously, this is the place to eat if you are in Rhinebeck, special occasion or not!

Excellent petite restaurant with creative cuisine AND the best pastries and desserts you will not find anywhere. A true gem. Perfection. Make reservations.

Neat little restaurant with a creative menu and wonderful food (including great pastries for dessert) and friendly, professional service. We started with their grilled portobello & shrimp with pesto -- and the crab cake, both very tasty. They even included a nice salad between courses. Our mains were pumpkin-filled raviolis and their bouillabaisse (nice broth and lots of shellfish), both... More

My husband and I were on date night. It's been awhile and this place made it worth it. The ambience is adorable and quaint and I did not feel claustrophobic even though there are only 7 tables. I love this aspect of the restaurant. It's very intimate and the service was geared towards making the patrons happy. The food was... More

An intimate gem of a restaurant. Outstanding food. Enjoyed by all in party. Varied menu. Well prepared and presented. All food was excellent from appetizer to desert. Next visit to the area will include a reservation sty Calico!

(I also wrote this on Yelp) We came here on a weekend holiday upstate, on a Saturday night. My boyfriend had been here 20 years ago, and I must say I'm glad he had a fond memory of the place. The intimate, cozy setting was a great place to settle in for our last dinner in the area before heading... More

What can we say? My husband adores crab cakes. He rated Calico's as some of the best. The price was quite low.

My wife and I visited Calico Restaurant and Patisserie while in Rhinebeck for a few days. This restaurant is a true gem, small in size but huge in flavor and service. With only about 8-10 tables reservations are very highly recommended. I had the bouillabaisse which was absolutely outstanding - the broth was very well flavored and the seafood was... More

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary in the Hudson Valley with our children. We knew the area a bit, but had no idea about restaurants. The Through the Looking-Glass charm of the Calico Cat (that smile!), the gambler's zest of staking so special a dinner on a 7-table restaurant, and, I must say, the out-of-sight... More

We had a lovely anniversary dinner at Calico. Service is attentive, but not invasive, with much attention to detail. The menu is diverse and interesting. Sauces are light and aromatic, and truly enhance rather than overpower. I had a stuffed filet of sole in a lobster broth which was the highlight of any seafood fish I have ever had -... More
