Owners were cooks and servers. They're know locally for their pastries. Steady flow of take outs from pastry display. Only a few tables so reservations are necessary. Food was really good.

The food is of high quality and nicely prepared. We tried their award winning garlic soup which we found tasty but thin. My husband had a pasta dish with shrimp and scallops which he enjoyed. I found the menu limiting Being a fussy vegetarian. Did enjoy a mushroom dish. Made a huge mistake by not ordering dessert.

When we moved to the Rhinebeck area eight years ago, Calico Restaurant and Patisserie was the first restaurant we tried. We have been regular customers ever since. The food is always delicious and moreover, always consistent. There is never an "off nignt." The owners, chef Tony and pastry chef Leslie, have paid attention to every detail. Service is attentive and... More

We drove down from Albany to have lunch at CIA to find the campus closed :( on the way down we were tempted to stop at Rhinebeck by the sight of the restaurants! We got lucky to end up at Calico. The foot was delicious and the service very friendly, just as it says on the Trip Adviser! Made our... More

Having moved to the Berkshires seven years ago from Manhattan we have desperately hoped to find a restaurant that brings New York crisp service, great food and a wonderful dining experience together. We just found that after visiting Calico. As others have said it's small and pretty noisy when full but our server AKA the pastry chef and one half... More

A wonderful place to stop for lunch when you are in Rhinebeck. Very small so it is personal service and fresh preparation. The Manilla clams on pasta with lobster broth was very good. The pulled pork sandwich was also very good. The pastries looked wonderful and there were several people that came through to take away small boxes of goodies... More

The food, appetizers, staff were excellent! I had the best rack of lamb. The ribs were meaty, cooked to perfection and my husband had the shrimp and scallop dish and said it was the best scallops he had in a long time.

By far, one of the best in the Hudson Valley! Delectable appetizers, unique entrées and desserts to satisfy any sweet tooth! Staff was more than accommodating and very pleasant. Just be sure to make reservations! The quaint dining room fills up fast, and for good reason!

When we are celebrating a special occasion, holiday or just want something amazing to eat we go to Calico. They have the most amazing pastries, cakes, individual desserts and cookies. They are freshly made, artistically decorated, and awesomely delicious - and no calories at all! The dessert with the peanut butter and chocolate is the favorite but the brownie is... More
