Great little gem in the village of Rhinebeck!

Love the atmosphere. You need to make a reservation. Drinks great, food awesome. We were not rushed at all as a previous review complained. Cannot wait to go back!

Great dining this past Friday. We selected the special, asparagus soup - delicious, and calves liver - wonderful. I avoid ordering calves liver as many times it is too cooked. Le Petit Bistrot served a calves liver perfectly "rose", with crisp bacon, mashed potatoes. I needed more bread to clean my plate. We ordered a bottle of Cahors, the combination... More

This is a great restaurant. It has a typical bistro atmosphere - cosy and usually busy so if it is a quiet dinner place you are looking for then this may not be your spot. I have been dining at this place for a number of years and it always delivers. It is advisable to make a reservation since this... More

This was just bizarre... Our "dining experience" when our waitress curtly informed us that we could only order entrees and that we had an hour and thirty minutes to complete our meal. The hostess had failed to inform us of this when she sat us at our table. Yes, it was Valentines Day and we ad arrived 30 minutes late... More

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!
