Third or fourth time there and Le Petite Bistro is in my top 3 of all time. From the minute you squeeze in the door the professional staff makes you feel at home. The food is always good and most times great. The prices are very reasonable. Value, quality and perfect service...a fading commodity but not here! Be sure to... More

My wife and I ate at Le Petit Bistro over the Thanksgiving weekend after reading the reviews. Tables are extremely close together, but the food was excellent. The menu itself doesn't have a lot of items, but there were many specials available on their caulkboard. I had two of their specials: a BBQ shrimp appetizer and rack of lamb...both really... More

Tonight we experienced another delicious meal with our Rhinebeck friend who is moving. The food, wine and service has never disappointed us and tonight was no exception. We waited almost 30 minutes for our 8:00 reservation, but we did not complain because I didn't call until the night before for a Friday night reservation and were happy that we could... More

Go for the food, go back for the service and the food. Not sure which were more impressive. It's a charming place with a lovely menu and lovely hospitality. It made our anniversary dinner extra special!

Small restaurant, imaginative layout, attentive staff and good entrees. The snails were on the bland side. Overall a bit pricey but pleasing atmosphere with no loud music.

My experience here started off wonderful. We went in early and were told that we can be seated however they needed our table at 8:30 pm. We said no problem and sat. We ordered appetizers, bottle of wine, and entrees. After we finished our entree the waitress came over and said and I quote "due to a time constraint we... More

Over the years, I have to Le Petit many times. Everytime, the food is fantastic. You can't go wrong. The chef/owner Joe really had a great thing going. My only complaint is the atmosphere. It's severely dated. But, not the biggest of problems considering the perfection of everything else.

We have been to,Le Petit Bistro several times and have never been disappointed. The only trouble you might have is securing a reservation for a Saturday night. The food is superb and the wine list is excellent and well priced. The desserts are delicious as well. Most recently we took friends from Europe who know good food and they were... More
