Tops in Rhinebeck. The menu is imaginative, presentation is superb and very good. Appetizers were dumplings and mussels. Steak for main. Service was attentive. Crowded even at the early 5:30 seating. Good Drinks, Good Bartender.

Can't disagree with the other posters. Most foods are things I could make at home, not too special. So I looked to the drinks... I went for one of the specials, fresh blueberries and a nice handmade syrup, sounded awesome. Only average. I want this to be the new yummy place, but not too special just yet. Word is that the bar is a great hang however.

Everything may be locally sourced but I am guessing the chef had to be bribed to eat his veggies as a child. Whatever green things there are on the menu are covered in pork , cheese or nuts- sometimes all three ! It is really hard to choose healthy meals here. By the time you hold all the salty and fatty additions you are left with next to nothing. It is too bad since the food is prepared well. Please make some dishes that the health conscious can eat!
As others have said, the space is small and on many levels. It can be noisy. The small balcony is nice in the summer.
The bartender is great!

Small quarters , upstairs even smaller and cramped , steak offering very disappointing and appetizers are mediocre. Desserts are fine and the pricing is too high for the return.
Last time for me and my friends.
