Tiny Calico serves the best food in food-happy Rhinebeck, but I hope few find that out. The only minor flaw (for others in my party, not for me) was the absence of hard liquor, although everyone seemed happy with the wine.

Chef Anthony's attention to quality is evident in every dish. The food is exquisite, the service first rate. Pastry Chef Leslie produces a wide range of treats which are available for take out if you are not lucky enough to grab one of the precious dinner reservations. There are many places to eat in Rhinebeck but there is only one... More

In addition to being a restaurant, Calico is also a patisserie. We recently went there to get some paste rise and cookies to take out and they were wonderful. Easily on a par with some of the pastries we have had on trips to Paris!

my wife and I finally made it back to Calico after a few years. The mistake was too long between visits. My wife had the delicious ravioli and I started with some very tasty Manila clams, followed a delightful shrimp and scallops over pasta and ended with a bit of "indulgence". What a fabulous dinner on all counts. We will... More

This is the quintessential bistro in the historic village of Rhinebeck. The only thing better than the food and service are the pastries and other desserts. The menu varies but the Garlic Soup is a staple and absolutely delicious. Stop in for lunch (or Sunday brunch) to experience a true culinary treat in every respect and don't forget to leave... More

My wife and I like great food served in an intimate and cozy setting, and Calico really fills the bill. The service is prompt from a pleasant staff. Our appetizers included a must-try Sauteed Risotto and safron Fritter and the always delectable and hard to pass-up sauteed Crab Cake. The Bouillabaisse was delicious although I have to comeback just to... More

We love Calico - the food, the atmosphere, the service are all perfect. Such a special place - an intimate place with very warm, friendly service. No matter what you get - it is cooked perfectly - from lamb chops to the best bouillabaisse I have ever had. We eat here as often as we can and everything is always... More

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!
