What a great find! We had a reservation but the old part of restaurant was full of large parties. I’d still try and eat there next time. We ate in the newer section but it was fine. The menu, food, service are all perfect. Lots of new menu items on their blackboard. Their French onion soup is authentic. The fried oysters truly live up to their reputation. The veal francaise was very good. The French rolls with real butter are great. Truly loved it! Didn’t have room for desserts!

We love sitting at the bar in the original section of the restaurant. The fried oysters are a must have dish each time we visit and they always have a great selection of wines. The service has always been good at the bar. It is usually very crowded when we have gone, but typically can find a seat at the bar within 15 minutes or so. Definitely recommend.

Love this place! The sleek new bar is a great spot for a cocktail or dinner. The smaller older bar seats on the other side can be reserved for dinner. Comfortable single dining as well since there is usually lively banter among patrons. We tend to order off the specials board. The oysters are delicious and I love the scallops.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Rhinebeck however not so great last time out with friends. The waitress was friendly, knowledgeable, and had a good sense of humor. However, it took forever to get our drink orders served, not once but two or three times depending on who reordered (very annoying). My meal “hanger steak” was tough and didn’t finish.
Love this place but they need to quicken the pace on drink orders. The meal..... just a bad night for hanger steak.
