A great dining experience

We visited the restaurant last summer and made plans to return again when we are in the area. Our meal were delicious. I had a veal dish and it was one of the best cuts of veal I I have ever had. Very tender with the sauce cooked into the meat. The dessert was likewise tasty and had eye... read more

It had been quite a while since I'd dined at Le Petit Bistro and friends invited us to a birthday dinner. We had a 6:30 reservation and were promptly seated. Within a minute of being seated, we were asked for our drink order and a minute after that we were asked again. And then we were told about the specials... More

I had dinner at this restaurant and was impressed. The service was top notch and the food was excellent. I gave it only 4 stars simply because it was one of many local restaurants that was very good but it didn't stand out as the best of best. No complaints though.

This week we had the pleasure of dining at Le Petite Bistro. We were hosting a corporate offsite of 30 international colleagues in Rhinebeck and had an intimate dinner at this restaurant. The staff were fantastically informed and responsive, the food was amazing and they were able to serve such a large party off the menu at the same time.... More

While many other restaurants are inconsistent - good one time and not so great the next, this restaurant is consistently excellent. The service is top notch. They anticipate your needs, but not in an annoying way. Had dinner here, again, and my fried oyster appetizer and soft shells crab entree were wonderful. We always look forward to eating here.

Best martini I've had in years. This bartender's an ace. Food is good, slightly cramped quarters, service fine.

Steak Frites is so simple, so lovely, and so easy to do wrong! Le Petit Bistro has been doing it JUST RIGHT for years. Cozy little place, try to grab a seat at the bar.

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
