Le Petit Bistro in Rhinebeck: Cozy, romantic & very French

Posted By on Fri, Nov 22, 2013 at 9:00 AM

Le Petit Bistro is a very cozy and intimate French restaurant in Rhinebeck. I went there for the first time after I had just returned from a 10 day vacation in France. I had high expectations. I also know that even the best French restaurant here can't compare to a home-cooked meal at my cousin's house in France. The delicious dinner I had at Le Petit Bistro came pretty close though. The service was outstanding. (Don't be intimidated by the knowledgeable staff there! They are eager to answer any questions you have about any dish on the menu).

We had the pate and the escargots to start. Both appetizers were delicious. The bread wasn't French bread, but it was good. I had the duck, which was perfectly cooked. My husband ordered the skirt steak which was a special. Though I really enjoyed the duck, if I go there again, I will order the lamb as it comes with mashed potato, and the woman seated next to me, raved about them. I don't know why they served plain old white rice with such a magnificent duck.

Dessert was totally over-the-top! I got the eggnog creme brule. (I'm sure there was a bit of alcohol in there!) My husband had the apple crisp. I would definitely recommend Le Petit Bistro as a perfect place to splurge a little on date night. Be sure to make a reservation, especially on a weekend.
