“Fabulous!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Best scones ever! Get there early and get some scones and croissants. Every time I am in Rhinebeck I make it a point to get to Calico. When I need a special dessert or a little treat this is my go to place. Not only are the baked goods fab the food is delish, the owners are friendly, kind and accommodating, great people and their staff is wonderful. I can't say enough nice things about this place.

“Save Room for Dessert”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Warm, inviting, intimate and satisfying-- the reviews that brought me to Calico were absolutely correct. Dinner was enjoyable, service most pleasant, and the pear tart absolutely seductive. If I lived near Rhinebeck, Calico could be a steady diet!

“Our Favorite”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We ate is three Rhinebeck restaurants. All were of excellent quality but Calico was our favorite. In fact, after our Wednesday night dinner we made reservations for Thursday night before we left the restaurant. The sole was delicious. The mussels were in a scrumptious broth. We used the homemade rolls to sop up the broth. You must save room for dessert. There is a lovely selection. The service was just right.

“Warm welcome, fine food, a winner”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This tiny restaurant welcomes every diner as if they were coming "home" for a meal. We had dinner on a Saturday night and wish we were going to be in town longer to sample lunch or brunch. Small side salads served with every entree (an increasingly rare nicety) were dressed beautifully. Seafood pasta entrees were light and lovely - if somewhat under seasoned for our palates. Special dietary conditions were accommodated graciously. The dessert selections were extraordinary - in quantity, variety and quality. Don't miss them! Mostly though, the friendly wait-staff and the gracious, welcoming co-owner made this a wonderful evening. Book in advance, don't chance missing this gem in an increasingly wonderful foodie town.

“One of our all time favorites...”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Over the past few years we've never been disappointed with the meals, the service and the intimate ambiance at Calico. The dishes are presented with tasteful simplicity yet with character and nuance. We return to this all time favorite Rhinebeck restaurant whenever we're celebrating something really special or whenever we simply need a memorable culinary experience, not to mention to bakery delights. Calico always satisfies! Robert - New Canaan, CT
