Always a delight to eat at Terrapin. The waiter made us feel like we were old friends and took care of a whole table of people with dietary needs such as vegan and gluten free. The food and service is the best. Love the squash soup!!
First time in a long time my husband and I visited Terrapin. There are so many outstanding restaurants in Rhinebeck and based on food quality this is one of the best. Our meal was delicious. The Daily Fish Special Red Snapper was outstanding.
This was my first visit to the place in 2017. I had been there last year but one never knows from year to year how places change. However this was just as good as the last time. Food was wonderful and service was very attentive. Nobody rushed us and we truly enjoyed the dinner. Food was fit for a foodie and very plentiful. I will look forward to going back soon. So many good choices it is hard to decide what to order so one must return repeatedly.
Whatever the occasion, Terrapin is always a good choice.
Food is excellent and the service exceptional.
Love this restaurant. Food and service are both great. Quiet enought to sit and talk. Nice atmosphere.
The food and service was amazing! Well he back again soon!
Valentine’s Day dinner. Fixed menu. Food was great, service was excellent, and my date was even better!
The special menu for Valentine’s Day was exceptional. But what made it even better was our server Michelle. Very friendly and just the right amount of attention. A wonderful evening.
Quiet ambiance most appealing and appreciated. Wonderful for having conversations around the table. Attentive staff. Good food. Close to home.
FOR MANY YEARS HAVE ENJOYED BRING FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO YOUR RESTAURANT. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK'
The Terrapin is an excellent restaurant, I have been there a few times and every time the food and service is outstanding. All the food is locally sourced when possible, which is great for the food you are eating and also for the local economy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to get an excellent meal. It is a bit on the high side for prices but I think that it is totally worth the money spent.
Every year at this time (early February) my girlfriend and I spend a weekend in Rhinebeck. During this weekend, we always make sure we get to terrapin. It is with no doubt, one of our favorite restaurants in the Hudson Valley. The ambiance is nice, the wait-staff is very attentive and friendly, but it is the food, which is the star of the show. Great tasting food, generous portions (always leave with a "doggy-bag") cooked to perfection. Great job, keep it up.

Pork chop was great.
Very interesting food beautifully prepared. Cocktails were unique and creative. Server was very helpful almost like a mother hen guiding us to come out of out comfort zone. My daughter raved about the gluten free options especially the bread!
Looked so forward to Southern Fried Chicken which the waiter said the true southerners thought it authentic. 3 out 4 ordered it and all was dry and tasteless. Very disappointing.
The fourth person had fish taco and the tortilla soup and like both.
The food was wonderful...and the service exceptional!
We have been here a few times but wasn’t overly impressed this visit. I felt rushed, not to mention the location of the table was terrible. It was near the exit of the kitchen and near the upper level stairs of the restaurant as well as a rest room. The chairs were quite uncomfortable.
For the positives, the wait staff is always personable and the desserts were quite satisfying. They gave my daughter who is gluten free, a small basket of g.f.bread. She was thrilled.I wouldn’t be in a big hurry to return, considering it’s a 50 minute drive , but I’m sure my husband will want to go again during restaurant week.
Cool ambiance since it is inside an old church building with great food choices and very friendly staff!
Terrific meal, great waiter, and Pappy VanWinkle bourbon! What more could you ask for???
Our third visit and the food was better than ever. Our group of five tried many different truly superb tasting dishes.
My husband and I went for Christmas Eve dinner and it was fabulous! Had reservations so there was no wait at all and the staff was very helpful in their recommendations!!
Our favorite date night place.
The braised lamb shank was great!! The service from the staff was exceptional.
Great place to eat. I ordered lamb that was so tender it fell off the bone and i needed no knife. Waiter was a great guy too joking around with a few tables. He reminded me of Andrew zimern of Bizarre Foods.
First time experience at the Holiday Beer Dinner. Food was very good and the beer was excellently paired with the courses. Beautiful holiday decor added to the experience. Will be back next year.
Excellent from beginnng to end...starting with a sour cherry bourbon manhattan, going to warm chocolate stout cake. Thank you!
The beer tasting dinner was fabulous! The food was delicious and the beer pairings well thought out. The servers were friendly and professional. I would definitely do this again & would recommend.
Overall wonderful dining experience. Duck quesadillas with avocado soooo delicious. So too the goat cheese wontons, tuna sushi. Red snapper with risotto moist, light, flavorful. Best restaurant in rhinebeck
This was our first time eating at Terrapin, we had only been to the bar. Delicious steak and wine. A bit pricey, but enjoyable.
I always enjoy eating at Terrapin. Food & service was good. However, it is getting a little pricey for what it is. Still would recommend for lunch or a night out.
I go to Marist college down the road and a friend of mine recommended I try Terrapin. I went for my birthday last weekend with my parents and it was to die for. The food was spectacular and the portions were hearty and great for college students who love leftovers. I highly recommend the duck quesadillas! The decor inside was so beautiful I felt so festive and happy. On top of that, our server was really lovely and made great conversation while still leaving us plenty of alone time to eat in peace. It's my new favorite spot!
Visited with the restaurant with friends on December 7 after a book signing with Secretary Clinton. The food was delicious and our waiter was absolutely wonderful - attentive, informative (wine and food), personable. It was a fantastic experience. I need to go back soon and will spread the word. My only pet peeve, I still feel a nice salad should be included with a $30+ meal - thus the small drop in the rating for value. Other than that.... incredibly good
Food better than I expected when I first arrived. When in Rhinebeck, we would definitely go back. Maybe to the bistro side next time - it looked a lot cozier.
Beautiful interior. Each dish was outstanding. Our waiter was so so so kind & knowledgeable about the food & wine pairing. LOVED this restaurant. Very special while being so relaxed and comforting. Can’t wait to return. A MUST.
Fantastic, best steak I've had in ages! Great service, all the food came out surprisingly fast and the restaurant was pretty busy. Will go back!
Great food and atmosphere. Loved that I got an email about Sinterklaas and was able to make a reservation. We even arrived early and were able to be seated right away. Our favorite restaurant to visit in Rhinebeck.
Excellent accommodation and great service/friendly staff.
Amazing drinks, food, and service. I can’t stress how wonderful this place is.
Great food and service. Definitely worth the trip. Will highly recommend to friends and family. I’ll fefinitely coming back.
What a fantastic dining experience. The food was outstanding, as were the specialty cocktails. We trusted our server to recommend much of what we ordered and were not disappointed. It was a busy night, but we were in no way rushed or crowded. Truly a great meal from start to finish.
