The serving staff is excellent as always . The cheese board an drinks outstanding. My wife was a bit disappointed as her filet was very red on the inside when she asked for medium well. My Asiago Chicken was outstanding. We are frequent patrons and will be back, this was just a atypical night on the steak. BTW. We did not point out the steak issue to our server

Our waiter had such a wonderful personality - he was funny, kind, had the best recommendations, and just made us feel comfortable. The gentlemen who cleared our table and served us water throughout the evening was fantastic, I am pretty much a fish, and he kept me topped off the entire time. It was a busy evening, since it was Mother's Day - although the staff was incredibly busy, they were all approachable and made us feel as if we were the only customers when they were at our table. We had their undivided attention. Not many people can provide that level of service. The food was to die for (as always). I've learned you can't go wrong with anything on Terrapin's menu. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

It was a nice enough dinner experience, however the service was a bit slow as it was very busy. One of our entrees was over-salted by a lot, in my opinion. Overall it's a nice place and has great menu.

The food was good, but it was not outstanding. The noise level was very high, and we had two women sitting next to us that were cackling so loud that they pretty much ruined our experience.

We were quickly seated when we arrived and our server was charming and attentive. We shared the artichoke appetizer (yum) and we both ordered the blue cheese encrusted filet minion. The meat was cooked to perfection and floated on top of truffle mashed potatoes and spinach. It all so delicious. Wish I could rate the desserts (which looked very appetizing) but we were just too full. An excellent experience for a great price. Definitely would recommend Terrapin to anyone visiting Rhinebeck!

Two of party had the tuna and liked it. But, the burger was pretty bad, and we are certain that the braised short ribs were not actually ribs... either way, they were tasteless. Shishito peppers appetizer was overly salted. Goat cheese wontons also were bland. Filling for the deviled eggs was so dense that we had to continuously drink water to remove it from our teeth. Decent atmosphere and friendly service, but - especially for the prices ($30+ for entrees) - I cannot recommend.

Only thing, my filet mignon was not prepared medium rare. It was definitely medium, which I don’t care for as much. It was a Easter and busy, and so I chose not to send it back.

Our waiter Patrick was awesome with great recommendations such as the mushroom bisque and stuffed pork chop. His recommendation of the cheesecake for dessert was spot on. Overall atmosphere was really interesting as it is in a restored old church although it was a bit loud. It was a little pricey but you’re getting high quality and it was well worth it! I would definitely go back here!

The ambiance and hostess staff were very nice. But it took over an hour to receive our meal and when it arrived it was so dry it wasn’t edible. When we mentioned it to our server he didn’t even question it, it was like he knew he shouldn’t even have brought it to our table.

The food was good but it took over 1 hour and minutes for us to get our meals. Overall it was good but the time it took from ordering until we received our meal was much longer than it should have been
