The staff was friendly and accommodating. I have a dairy allergy and our server advised me of what I could order and switched out a salad dressing for me.

Love this local gem located in an old church. It's gorgeous and the food is fresh and delicious. Tapas options are great and love how it promotes all the local farms.

I went for a casual catch up with a friend. We sat inside, the tables were spread out and the restaurant itself is beautiful. The food and drinks were great. I got the passion fruit martini which was delicious. We ordered a few tapas: goat cheese wontons, sliders, crispy artichokes & duck quesadilla. Good to share for 2 ppl, note since they’re tapas the sizes are smaller so you should order a few. The ahi tuna appetizer was also great. For my main I had the special rigatoni with chicken and spinach which was amazingg, would definitely recommend. The service was also fantastic. Overall we had a wonderful experience, I will be back!

The place is a really cool setting in an old church. A lot could have been done creatively in the interior to make it a wow experience. Instead, it is a mishmash of decorative styles that are neither cozy or inventive.

The food wasn't great. I got a bunch of appetizers which were not good - mini burger was tiny on a too big bun and dry, artichoke and dip was tough and sauce not good, calamari with dip which was cooked just right but tasteless along with a pineapple dipping sauce which had zero flavor except a hint of pineapple.

One person got a double cut pork chop which was humongous and looked good. Another got the strip steak and enjoyed it.

We all thought the drinks were great.
Our server was great too. She was very enjoyable and provided good service.

Delicious bread with soft butter to start. Well-spaced tables, somewhat limited menu but the food is delicious. Delicious cheesecake with caramel, nuts and chocolate. Yum!

Always love the crispy artichokes as an appetizer. The filet mignon with crusted bleu cheese melted in your mouth! SO GOOD! Social distance was maintained throughout the restaurant.

If you're dining inside the restaurant, making a reservation in advance is the way to go. Everything was phenomenal - from our waiter, to the ambience, the food, drinks, spacing of tables for social distancing measures.

We chose first from the Tappas menu: Duck Quesadilla Wedge with Mango-Avocado Salsa, the Duck Quesadilla Wedge with Mango-Avocado Salsa, and Crispy Artichokes with Wasabi Aioli... all delicious. Then we tried the Grilled Chicken Breast w/Meyer Lemon Beurre Blanc, so very tasty, and the Bowtie Pasta w/Sweet Sausage, also delicious... a great dining experience. We'll be back.

We first went here 5 years ago and never stopped talking about it. So when we planned a weekend in Rhinebeck, we made it a point to make sure that we ate here. One of the coolest restaurants I've ever eaten in. Most importantly, the food and the service are always the best. You will not be disappointed.

My wife and I couldn’t have picked a better spot to celebrate our anniversary. In our whole lives we’ve never eaten better in a church !! It was heavenly. She had the ahi tuna, seared rare, over a bed of spinach and shiitake mushrooms with a unique and delicious sauce. I had the braised short ribs that were perfect for a snowy evening. For dessert we shared the warmed homemade blueberry pie a la mode. But the highlight was our server, Patrina, who was knowledgeable and personable. We’ll be back in the Spring and we’ll ask to be seated at one of Patrina’s tables.

The appetizer fried artichokes are out of this world, the macademia nut crusted calamari is the best ever... not chewy. Squash soup never disappoints! Ordered the pork chop...so tender and juicy and plenty for leftovers! My daughter had the duck quesadilla for an entree...her go to meal here. My son and husband had the salmon...moist and delicious. Felt safe and socially distant (about 15 feet from the closest table). Wonderful night out celebrating my birthday!

One of our favorite restaurants. Have to travel over 2 hours to get here so can't go too often but worth the day trip/overnight stay to dine here
