This is a well established, well loved local favorite. The cuisine is superb, the choices varied in their offer of local meats and fresh fish, lovingly prepared and presented. The wine list can please all budgets and the side dishes are imaginative and complementary. Desserts are classic French, as is the coffee and after dinner Cognac, Armagniac- whatever is your...

Le Petit Bistro is perfect french food with a great wine selection. Very popular with the weekenders so make your reservations. I have always had a great experience with the service and exquisite food.

We waited over 40 minutes to get seated even with a reservation and the waitress did not explain some of the dishes properly, but the food was excellent. By far the best meal in Rhinebeck.

Top notch food and service. Has the feel of some of the nicer NYC restaurants we've eaten in when we lived downstate. The staff is friendly and pay attention to the little details (like filling your water glass) that make it comfortable and special. Wait until you see the daily specials! Consistently great. Never hesitate to go back.

The food is alwasy good..but the menu itself needs some working out....but I do get tired of people talking about how great of French food it is. As a Former chef and working in... More

I had the hanger steak (very good) and my wife had one of the specials, a Char fish dish which she said was only... More

Came here for dinner, we mainly had appetizers and drinks, but the food was nothing to rave about. Most of the items were ok, we did have an issue with the escargot being sandy. We sat in the front at a very small table, pretty much on top of the other couple sitting to the right and left of us.... More
