We chose this small restaurant by reading the online reviews - it did not disappoint. Small, crowded, but great atmosphere. The staff works as a well-tuned machine. The food was superb! Overall feeling was of a true dining experience!

Joe is a master of his craft! The staff is warm and welcoming (as are the rolls!, do yourself a favor and stop at 1! Or 2...) Fried oysters are to die for! Really can't go wrong with whatever you order. Sooo delicious! ❤️

Le Petit Bistro has been a Rhinebeck fine dining fixture for many years. Despite it's prominent Market Street location, it's not an obvious restaurant to the casual observer.

Intimate atmosphere and excellent food and service. It is authentically French, but not overpowering. The menu is large enough for everyone to find something appealing.

Over the past 15 years I have eaten there nearly 20 times and can say I have never had a bad meal. The dining room is small, and you will definitely need a reservation on the weekends even off season. There are a number of good restaurants in Rhinebeck, this is certainly one of them.

Restaurant was closed for alterations (enlargement?) during May 2016 visit to Rhinebeck. Reliably excellent French food the 3 or 4 times we've eaten there. Superior to other venues.
