We have always enjoyed the food and intimate ambiance in this local favorite. However recently visited and had a very frustrating experience. We ordered 3 small courses plus dessert. Our meal took more than 2 hours on a very slow evening. Diners all around us...More

Frequently have family dinners for special events at this place...always happy with service and food. With Rhinebeck having more than 6 upscale restaurants, this one has a slightly different decor and feel...call it old world charm.

Le Petit Bistro is just that. Small and cozy on the inside it’s nestled between two stores at 8 East Market Street in Rhinebeck, New York. Every year on the first Saturday in December, Rhinebeck ushers in the Christmas Season with their Sinter Klaus parade...More

A little gem in the middle of Rhinebeck NY. This restaurant is mostly specialized in French food but also serves some non French food. The service is very good and prompt with a small town flair & feel. I liked the presentation of the restaurant...More

One of the little secrets of Rhinebeck. A great little spot to take out of town guests or to celebrate special occasions. They definitely know how to make food taste great!

I'm also not sure. BUT (or AND) in the next few weeks, everyone should call ahead to make sure they are open; they are expanding, taking over the store next door (on the corner), and I don't know how long construction will... More
