My wife and I have had many meals since the opening of the Calico many years ago.The owners( husband and wife) are a wonderful team with chef Tony and pastry chef Leslie. The menu changes frequently accented by evening specials,all of which I believe I have tried over the last 10+ years....the wine list while compact in nature provides a... More

As longtime local patrons of the delightful Calico Restaurant and Patisserie in Rhinebeck, my husband and I have enjoyed many memorable meals and desserts there. What makes this an enduring treasure is the consistently high quality of the food and service and the charming ambience of its very intimate setting. Run by accomplished chef / owners, husband and wife team... More

We have been eating a Calico for years and have never been disappointed. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, the food is incredible and the desserts are to die for! As a matter of fact, they are so good, my daughter had their pastry chef make her wedding cake a few years ago and it was delicious. This is... More

We were a group of seven, and were seated right outside the kitchen. The ambiance and friendly staff made us feel as if we were at home with friends. Our food was delicious, reasonably priced, and complemented by nice house cabernets. The setting is small, and you don't get lost in the crowd. I appreciated the chef checking in on... More

What is a winning combination? A fantastic Chef in the kitchen that makes food that tastes great in so many directions of food. The Garlic soup was excellent. I was never a fan of crab cakes until I had them at the restaurant. They have totally changed my opinion of crab cakes. To put the icing on the cake, so... More

We chose Calico based on previous reviews, but were not as impressed as others seemed to be. The lunch was fine, but not great. I ordered a salad with shrimp and was not impressed at all. It was not huge (that's fine), but the quality was average. I've had similar salads in other places that were truly excellent, so it... More

While this little cafe serves lunch and dinner, it's also a bakery. The space is so small that if you are dining at a table, it's likely that a customer will come in and order from the display case, so it's not really the best atmosphere for a quiet meal. The baked items are really outstanding, however, so stop in... More

Nice little place with good salads & baked goods. Service a bit slow, but pleasant. You can take items out from the bakery. We only had lunch here, but they do serve breakfast & an early dinner.

We were at the Calico Restaurant on December 16, 2015 for dinner for a business meeting for 4 of us. The waitress was very friendly and service was great. The menu has a great variety and presentation and quality was perfect. Cant wait to go again and look forward. A must place to eat when in the area!
