Great food and service.

Delicious food-wonderful service. Dessert is selected from the Patisserie showcase. Owner prepares the food and his wife is the pastry chef. Worth a visit. Reservations a must.

I wish I could give this restaurant more than five stars. This was the best meal I've had in a restaurant in a very long time. I ordered the shrimp and sea scallops and I just can't describe how delicious it was. I know that you should probably try other items on the menu in subsequent visits, but I'd be... More

I have come here a few times for brunch and many times for pastries. So many amazing options, you can't go wrong with anything here! It's a very cute, close-knit, friendly environment with awesome service! Also, desserts here are the best around-- I recommend the Cassis! Yum!

Four of us ate at Calico on May 14, 2015. The food was excellent. The menu selection is varied. The service was just right. It is a small restaurant in the heart of Rhinebeck. It is run by adults. All four of us ate well and were treated well. The prices are reasonable.

Perfect dinner for a date! The food was excellent, prepared so that we could truly savor each bite. Wine recommendations were spot on and the desserts were exquisite. Sarah Bernhardts are worth their weight in gold! Prices very reasonable for such a high quality experience. We will be back!

Our group of 6 had a delicious meal here, even better than our meal at the Culinary Institute! I ordered the monkfish--the sauce was flavorful and fish was perfectly cooked. Both owners are chefs; one is a pastry chef, and desserts were a treat. Service was beyond excellent and the owner watches over everything to make sure your needs are... More

Recently, we enjoyed a luscious and worthwhile special tasting event hosted by the owners of Calico in Rhinebeck. The evening revolved around Leslie Balassone's incredible desserts, sparking wines from the Trump Winery, and an auction--with all proceeds going to support the Eric Trump Foundation's efforts to raise funds for the benefit of the St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. During the... More

The event consisted of five courses of desserts prepared by Leslie Balassone which were all fantastic. They were complimented by Trump Wines with each course.
