My wife and I travel from Philadelphia for holiday in Rhinebeck twice a year. Each trip includes a mandatory dinner here-our favorite. The intimate romantic setting paired with incredibly warm and professional service is paired with food cooked with sophisticated yet understated flavors. Awesome duck along with fantastic fish, pasta and natural beef are truly superb and reasonably priced along with a good selection of wines. ...and once you experience one of the amazing dishes from Chef Anthony, you will have a challenge deciding on which dessert to choose from the also amazing pastry Chef Leslie. Pick up Sarah Bernhardts and assorted truffles to travel!

Food never disappoints, although menu is somewhat limited. Place is very small & plain. Salads (fresh greens only) come with Entrees and simple, but fresh. Nice homemade dessert selection. Last seating is at 8pm.

This was our first trip to the area and although this restaurant has apparently been open for 18 years, they are obviously still at the top of their game. The food was prepared simply but the ingredients were the freshest I have found. I had the cod fish and I cannot get that quality in my area without going to some very expensive fish stores to find it. The desserts are made by the chef's wife and it was incredibly hard to choose among them. Service is extremely cordial. Reservations highly suggested as they have 7 tables total.

Our group went to Calico based on the Trip Advisor reviews. The service was good and accommodating. But every member of our party thought his/her dish missed the mark. While the concept of each dish was appealing, the food was underseasoned and lacked zip.

I have been here 3 times over the past 4 years, and it is as close to perfection as a place could be. Very tiny, but perfect in so many ways. Kind and quiet service, superb food. Not showy and extravagant. Just really, really nice. Amazing desserts from the dessert case. The staff seems quite knowledgeable. Everything about this place says "we care deeply about your experience here."
