    Visiting from California - wow - what an amazing restaurant. A very extensive menu. Very hard to choose. For our dinner reservation I had the drunken shrimp and my friend ordered the mushroom soup. The next day we went back for lunch and we both ordered the soup and the shrimp. That's the review. So good we couldn't wait to eat it again, and if we lived here we would go back and try the many other dishes. Service was excellent with many servers seemingly taking care of everyone. A sweet outdoor seating area as well as inside tables. highly recommend.

    Interesting menu with creative but not fussy presentations. I had a delicious fave bean risotto and my husband had an ahi tuna. Liked the idea of tapas to start. Nice selection of wines by the glass. Excellent service.

    The meal cost us $400 for 4 people. The food was mediocre. The server only checked on us once our entire meal and he made us wait about 30 minutes between taking our drink and food orders even though the restaurant was barely half full. The server was clearly annoyed that we wanted coffee after our meal because he wanted to go home. I don't think we'll be back. Next time we are in Rhinebeck we'll try The Amsterdam.

    You know there is an issue when manager is dressed in flannel shirt and crappy jeans ( where busboys are better dressed)whose only purpose it seems is to take ur drink order and never comes over again Every dish was worse then the last For example fried calamari was not crispy and extremely over cooked … I would say rubber but that insult rubber Mushroom bisque (which specifically advertised as full Of mushrooms) I would never had know it was a mushroom bisque My main was Peking duck which waiter described came with crispy duck skin had no skin and the duck itself had no flavor Finally my cesear salad was not cesear it was made with a sweet vinagretter had no cheese and instead of crouton with garlic it was couple Piece of toasted bread cold and stale Disappointing

    My husband and I were greeted warmly by hostess and seated promptly at a cozy and comfortable table for two. The restaurant is in an old church and the original windows and ceilings are spectacular. The lighting is warm and sufficient to see the menus and surroundings without feeling too bright. Fresh flowers were on every table. This restaurant walks the farm to table walk, listing many of the farms, wineries and breweries they source from and pledging a sustainable business model. Our server was professional, efficient and happy to make recommendations when asked. We started with cocktails - the blueberry bramble and the old-fashioned. Bramble was good, the OF outstanding with muddled sour cherries and a chunk of orange - ambrosia!! We didn’t want to stuff ourselves so skipped appetizers and went straight to starters and entrees. The mushroom bisque was rich and creamy with a nice earthy flavor. The Little Gem salad was delicate and flavorful with grapefruit and avocado and a very light dressing. I had the appetizer portion of chili crusted ahi tuna and mesclun salad. The tuna was fresh and flavorful with a bit of heat. The mesclun salad included avocado which was a nice counterpoint to the spice of the tuna. My husband had the NY strip with a fig reduction and it was tender, flavorful and the sauce was divine. Truffle mashed potatoes were creamy and delicious. We each had a glass of wine and it was a perfect dinner - with the right portion sizes for each of us. We will definitely return on our next visit to Rhinebeck.

    Only one out of our 5 meals wasn’t great (Dad’s filet was over cooked /chewy). I had the mushroom soup and the gnocchi and they were so freaking good! It was late (8pm) on a Saturday night and didn’t seem overly busy. The food could have come out a tad quicker and the waitress could have been a little more attentive. But overall was a nice night out with the family. Loved the ambiance.

Our server was great too, friendly with a great sense of humor! We had a fantastic dining experience in this beautiful restaurant.

    Delicious meal, lovely server. The timing was a bit scattershot in that it took a few requests to get bread, and when it finally came out, we had just received our appetizers. But overall our experience was an excellent one.

    Reliable venue to get a very good meal. Excellent service. Drinks are pricey and on the small side. Double pork chop is a delicious standard on the menu. Only complaint would be the uber casual dress code in the dining room. Several people in bathrobes, t-shirts and ratty shorts on a Saturday night. Just doesn't add to the ambience for a nice dinner.

    My husband and I loved our first experience at Terrapin! The service was very friendly and attentive, and the food was some of the best we've had. We especially loved the Drunken Shrimp in Sherry Roasted Garlic Cream Sauce appetizer, and the braised Boneless Short Rib was outstanding. 10/10. We will certainly be dining at Terrapin again!

    We have been to Terrapin throughout the years, dating back to when they were on the other side of the Hudson River. The food has always been good. Last night was no exception. The tapas lamb chop was memorable. We arrived early, but soon after came a rush and soon the restaurant was full. It seemed as if it was understaffed, which is not surprising these days. We had to wait awhile foe our food and, later, our bill to arrive. But the whole experience was good and we’ll be back.
