We had wanted to have dinner here; however, the restaurant is extremely small and quite busy. We decided to have some pastries to take out and they were delicious!

Calico is a cute little restaurant in the charming town of Rhinebeck. My friend and I enjoyed dinner while in town for this year's Sheep & Wool Festival. My butternut squash ravioli were excellent. The salad was simple lettuce -- super fresh. I had a lovely sour cherry mini tart for dessert. The staff is very friendly and the prices... More

According to trip advisor this restaurant was open at the time we arrived @ 4:15 but when we entered were told they would not be serving until 5:15. Big disappointment having driven out of our way to dine there.

Calico is an intimate restaurant (8 tables) run by a husband and wife - he is the chef and she is the baker/waitress.

Basically a good reasonably priced neighborhood restaurant with a friendly staff, good food, fast service - no ambiance whatsoever. The space with about 10 tables placed fairly close together was not comfortable in first view. We liked the menu and since the entrees included a salad we skipped appetizers. The wines offered by the glass are inferior so we chose... More

The owners pour their heart and soul into this restaurant both with extreme talent as culinary graduates. Leslie is the pastry chef and whips up the most delicious baked goods which can be found early in the mornings if you are quick enough to snap them up. Tony has his expertise in the kitchen and produces some wonderful seasonal entrees.... More

The restaurant is small and quaint and food magnificent. The owners are the chef and the pastry chef and care about the food, service and guests!! We were able to meet the pastry chef and get her specific recommendations .... The meal was divine and the dessert heavenly ... Make a reservation since there are only 7 tables!!

This is a great restaurant, there are only seven tables and the service is top notch. It has a good, diverse menu. Both of our dinners were absolutely delicious with some of the best desserts you can imagine.
