Le Petit Bistro is not as petit as it once was. It has doubled in size with its recent expansion. But the cuisine has remained excellent. The expansion is basically a new bar with some seating. The food is authentic, varied and exceptionally delicious. It was no competition in the area.

I've had dinner and brunch multiple times here in Rhinebeck. The food is fantastic and the service is great. Fresh ingredients. Fish and scallops are especially tasty. Pork mignon should be tried by everyone. Overall a wonderful place!!

It was over a year and a half since we have been to the restaurant. in that time they expanded into the space next door. it looks great. the food however has suffered. Cold onion soup. Salad with only oil but no vinegar. Greasy scallops with bacon and risotto (not exactly french) and a piece of old, tasteless tuna, lukewarm, on a bed of mushy cold udon noodles. A very expensive bad meal. Way, way better when it was smaller and less hip/hop with oyster bar.

We entered the restaurant with hopes of finding French cuisine in the middle of Rhinebeck New York. While we were suitably impressed by the food that we ate, it was certainly not a French menu and it was not what we expected.. The pastries were excellent and the appetizers were imaginative. All were tasty and wholesome. The main entrées did not live up to expectations. My wife had the special quiche that tasted pretty special for the first half and then became less special as she went on. I had the eggs Benedict. But there was far too little hollandaise sauce on the eggs and eggs were fried rather than poached. We suggest that the potential diner not rely on our reviews of those two entrées only. We were there for a Sunday brunch and perhaps the regular menu items are better. We were expecting a full menu with French items.

Le Petit Bistro is a wonderful restaurant! They have expanded, with a lively bar, and a larger, more comfortable eating space, too. The food is outstanding! We had the duck breast special, served medium rare. One of the best duck dishes we've ever had! The drinks were generous, the service very attentive, the food delicious. Wonderful dining experience. We loved it and want to go back. Wish we lived closer!
