With time to kill we checked out all of Rhinebeck's restaurants on a Thursday afternoon. Decided to take a chance on Calico, largely because it was small, likely to be quiet, and a fellow walking by saw us checking the menu who said, "They're really good cooks." He was right! The "award winning" garlic soup deserved whatever award it won,... More

My wife and I have been to Rhinebeck several times before but we've never gotten in to Calico because of it's small size. This time, however, we were off season and on an off night. We got in and had a wonderful meal. The meal and desserts were great. Also, the staff was very pleasant and good to talk with.... More

Some of the most satisfying and memorable dining experiences can be had in small rural restaurants in Europe. The menus tend to be small, taking advantage of seasonal items, the food is prepared with obvious care, the dining area is usually cozy and intimate, and the server is a true professional, proud of literally being the face of the restaurant....

Wish I had found Calico sooner! My friend and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch with the assistance of a friendly, well-informed waiter who made the experience very enjoyable. The food was interesting, delicious, and left us wanting to return. We also enjoyed a dessert from the "dessert cabinet" which we found to be an added feature and it was great.... More

Warm and friendly small eatery on the main drag in Rhinebeck. We dine there very frequently and have never been disappointed. Service is attentive. Menu is well balanced. Try the bouillabaisse or, my personal favorite, the chicken in a cream pesto sauce. Wines are well chosen. Whatever you do, save room for desserts which are the fines confections north of... More

A small, intimate restaurant in the heart of the village. Everything is delicious, the Garlc Soup is incredible, the desserts are amazing! The staff is very friendly the owners warm and welcoming. Very simple surroundings, just a few tables. Prices are very reasonable. Menu selections inventive and beautifully presented. This is a very special place, favorite of many "Rhinebeckers". Must...

My wife and I visited Calico restaurant in the heart of Rhinebeck, NY on a sleepy Wednesday night. We were greeted by an incredibly attentive staff and served a wonderful meal. We shared the white lentil soup and each had a delicious main course. The ambiance inside the restaurant is simple, yet cozy and warm. The walls serve as a... More

My husband and I had dinner at Calico on a recent trip to Rhinebeck. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. The only thing we were a bit disappointed in was the atmosphere. The tables were candlelit, but even a tablecloth would have helped take the edge off of nothing but hard surfaces. There was nothing... More
