“Quality”
Reviewed December 21, 2010

Calico is my favorite place to have a nice meal and perfect dessert. From the moment you walk in you are taken care of with respect and enthusiasm. The place is quite small which is a plus because the owners and staff can lavash you with attention in the form of top quality food and service. Quality is never compromised, the food is comes out perfect every time. I especially look forward to having dessert as there is no better dessert anywhere. This is the place for you if you like fresh food prepared right and amazing desserts.

“Amazing food, great atmosphere, top notch service”
Reviewed December 15, 2010

Consistently the best place in town! Food is elegantly prepared and presented, many local products used. All desserts are made in house, and should not be missed.

“The folks at Calico know how deliver great food at a fair price!”
Reviewed December 15, 2010

What an amazing find! We discovered this tiny little jewel tucked away in scenic Rhinebeck N.Y. We live in the area and had probably overlooked it several times. It only has 7 or 8 tables but that doesn't stop Calico from delivering big things. The fish dishes are always amazing and flavorful. Everything from the soups through dessert was fresh and delicious each time we went. I was astonished at the wine selection given the small size of the restaurant. The staff is always friendly and the owner/pastry chef is a delight to talk to as she makes her way around the restaurant.

This is quaint restaurant with an excellent menu and desserts; service was very good portions however, were very small for the price. Not a restuarant for large groups excellent for a romantic dinner.

“Don't miss it.”
Reviewed October 13, 2010

Just finished wonderful dinner at this delightful, small intimate, restaurant run by a husband wife team with the husband as chef and wife as pastry chef extraordinairre. We had extraordinary terine of roasted garlic, pesto and goat cheese. Never had this anywhere else. Strong wonderful flavors. For dinner we had delicious boulabeise (sp?) with a great sauce and a pasta with peppers. Both terrific. Then there was a truly exceptional dessert; fraisse with dark chocolate topping and strawberry mouse inside.
