Great place! The food is delicious and prepared to perfection!   Will be back here soon!

 M Tara – Manhattan

What a great experience. The food was beautifully prepared, the atmosphere was so unique and intimate, and the service was great. Mellow, warm, friendly and unpretentious yet so, so good –

I selfishly hope this place stays a secret in the Rhinebeck area.
Had the corn and lobster bisque, the lamb, and the pot de creme. No extra charge for getting to pet the adorable pup between courses.
Can’t wait to go back the next time we visit Rhinebeck. Thank you Chef!

 “I know it’s a tired cliché, but I seriously debated whether to write this review, as this place really IS the proverbial hidden gem that I wanted to keep close to the vest. … I’ve only been here twice, but in some 30 years of dining out I can easily say that the Tasting Room is about as good as it gets. … Both experiences were just about perfect. And when I say that, I’m not only talking about the food, I’m referring to the entire experience. As is the case with any restaurant, that encompasses the food, the vibe, the ambience, the room, location, etc. … A blessedly tranquil spot for a relaxing dinner. No hustle. No bustle. No crowds. No rush. Easy parking.”

 “Chef Daniel has long been a wonderful caterer but now his talents can be shared with those looking for an amazing dinner at his new restaurant The Tasting Room. I went there with 5 of my friends and we were treated wonderfully to amazingly well prepared dishes during our 3 course meal. It was a very comfortable atmosphere and we are planning our next experience already.”

Kerri C. – Hudson, NY 

“Just got back from an excellent dinner at The Tasting Room at Gendron Catering. We had used Gendron Catering for a birthday party 5 years ago, and they were
excellent, so when Daniel opened his restaurant we always planned to try it. Tonight was the night and it did not disappoint. As appetizers, between the four of us we had
shrimp/pork dumplings, clams casino, and grilled octopus. All were excellent. For entrees we had lamb and skirt steak – also excellent.”

Jeff B. – Rhinebeck, NY 

“I recently had an opportunity to taste Daniel Gendron’s food at an upbeat New Orleans themed event. My father spent part of his early years growing up in N.O. and the first taste of Daniel’s delicious dirty rice with Andouille sausage brought back wonderful memories of my father’s cooking from decades ago. Everything I tasted was
terrific, so we recently tried one of his lunch specials and were very glad we did.”

James D. – Red Hook, NY 

“I’ve known Chef Daniel a long time and let me tell you, sitting in his dining room was such a treat! Now you can have his catering talents as a dinner for two or
more… Everything was so fresh and delicious…. I can’t wait to try his other creations… Way to go Danny!”
