Food in the Valley is on the up-tick ... and Rhinebeck enjoys a comfortable spot in that trend. That said, Bia was a joy and a delight randomly discovered with an OpenTable search. Took a chance ... and scored! Incredible food, impeccable service and an environment where you can actually enjoy a conversation without EVER having to shout, Try it ... you will NOT be disappointed.
Amazing ambiance, amazing service and most importantly amazing food! Restaurant is slightly off the path from the main strip of restaurants and should not be missed!!! My husband and I have eaten at most of the restaurants in Rhinebeck and have to say this was the best! Our server was amazing and knowledgeable and the food was fresh, seasonal and inventive. We were even offered a chance to pull a garnish from the little herb garden right on the patio. Will definitely be back!
Loved the experience and food. Every part of the meal (apps, entrée and dessert) was delicious. Staff was friendly and courteous, outside seating was a plus - will definitely go back.
I have been twice - excellent both times. The food is the main event; drinks (bar and wine list) close second. Slightly off beaten path in Rhinebeck so not a mob scene (yet). Chef was excellent with both meat and fish (try the cod if they have it). People smirk when I say "high-end Irish" - so maybe just "high end" with Irish influences. Either way, worth the trip.
Great addition to the Rhinebeck dining scene.
Excellent service and meal!
We are always looking for a new and amazing restaurant to eat at. Bia fit all our needs and we are so happy we tried it. Everything was amazing, the service was impeccable and our food was delightful,as well as, presented in an unique way. To start off our dinner, we received a basket of warm Irish breads. The bread seemed like the traditional and amazing bread we had had in Dublin. Next our appetizers were the Waldorf Salads which were perfect in size and taste. I had the kale and beet risotto, not something I typically would get but was wanting to go out of my comfort zone. It was amazing and my husband had the filet. The desserts were perfect!!! Husband drank the Americano coffee and I had my favorite, Barry's Irish Breakfast tea. THEN!!! They gave us salted caramel with our check. I haven't stopped thinking about Bia, we will definitely go back!!!
This was our 2nd time here. It is now one of our favorites. My husband is a foodie, I am less daring but I am a snob when it comes to good service. Both times we were blown away. My husband repeatedly said how amazing his dish was (happened to be a special). I love being treated special when out to eat (why bother otherwise) and the staff goes out of their way to do that. They are knowledgeable about the food, drinks, etc. and take great pride in it. I hope it all stays this way and the restaurant is a long time staple in Rhinebeck.
I was super excited to try Bia, my husband is from Ireland and we were celebrating our 16th wedding Anniversary. I was a little disappointed the filet I ordered was under seasoned and the Yorkshire pudding was over cooked. Having lived in West Yorkshire England, I know how Yorkshire puddings should taste, these were extremely dry and over baked. Also the bread in the bread basket was raw in the middle. I am willing to go back to try other dishes, in hopes it was an off night.
This was our second meal at Bia and it was excellent. We were four people and everyone enjoyed their meal. Love the fact that they have a vegetarian menu. Service was good. Definitely a great option for dining in Rhinebeck.
Everything was as delicious as it could be. The food was extremely well prepared and high end; as good as any fine dining establishment in the city. The owner was present ensuring that the patrons felt cared for.
the servers were attentive without being overbearing. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The salmon appetizer was amazing as was the mushroom dish. The steaks were perfectly cooked, and that's a feat given one was ordered medium rare and one well done. The wine list was eclectic and had something for every palate.
Lovely artistic setting for fine ingredients prepared with love and precision. Friendly, knowledgeable wait staff is attentive without being pasty. Loved the crab custard appetizer- very unique and tasty assemblage.
Loved the salad and fish and chips. Dessert was a bit too sweet
Glad we made an early reservation as the noise level got rather loud
My husband and I made a reservation for Sunday dinner. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and the staff. We had a pleasant experience with all servers, who were attentive and engaging without being obtrusive. Really, just right. The food was delicious; scallops arrived perfectly grilled and hot. Tomato ricotta salad was pretty and delicious. The presentation was lovely for all the meals we could see. The ambience was perfect--lighting is everything and it was so well done. The wall murals were really beautiful, but they still allowed the food and people to take front stage. Will we go back? A definitive yes.
Bia (Gaelic for food) is a culinary gem, taking full advantage of the wealth of superb local Hudson Valley produce, meat and seafood. Chef Rich Reeve has brought his passion for cooking to every restaurant he has graced but Bia is his highlight— he makes everything on the menu from bread, to pate, superb sauces and decadent desserts. The setting is beautiful and quiet, steps from the Beekman Arms but spared the nerve-rattling traffic noise of Rhinebeck’s Main Street (Rt 9).
Extraordinary. Exquisite attention is paid to every component on the plate and flavor is always the focus. So far this year, we've eaten at restaurants across the country with a combined 10 Michelin stars. The food at Bia was equal to any of them.
Beautiful food, inventive and tasty.
Bia is the best restaurant in Rhinebeck. I took my friends out to thank them for their hospitality, and we were amazed by the quality and caliber of the food that was prepared for us. We agreed to meet at Bia every week for a get together.
Tucked away and 100% worth it! Everything about Bia was amazing! The menu was unique and delicious. Drinks were awesome too. Overall - amazing experience. 10/10 recommend.
good food, great service, acoustics not great, Very Loud for such an intimate setting
Had the price fixe...........the salad was tiny, seemed like a 1/4 or 1/2 salad. No excuse for being stingy with the salad
Great new spot with a fun and different menu. Food was wonderful and service could not have been better.

A great addition to dining in Rhinebeck. Food was creative and delicious, service was friendly. We will be back!
What an excellent addition to the village of Rhinebeck! We have several excellent dining choices and this is among the top. The room is lovely, the waitstaff friendly and diligent. There were 7 people in our party and all the meals were delicious. Bravo!
I went to Bia for the first time with my friend on Wednesday night and we loved everything. The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. The restaurant itself is beautiful, great spot for a date night.
We had such a wonderful meal and overall experience at Bia. It was so good we went home and told our friends and cancelled our plans for the next night and went back to Bia!
My husband and I went to the restaurant for Father's Day. The food was outstanding. I had the duck with a pear tart and my husband had the lamb. The presentation was great and the owner was there greeting the diners. Our waitress was fantastic. This is a really great addition to Rhinebeck dining scene. We will be back there again.
Our first visit. Cuisine is amazing. Great wait staff. Bia needs to figure out a way to improve ambiance; up the buzz level.
Excellent food and cocktails. Have been three times since it opened and am sure we will be back many times more. The dishes are both creative and really well put together. While there is an Irish influence this is definitely fine dining at it’s best. The staff are friendly and efficient and the vibe very warm and welcoming.
The wait staff is very professional and we felt quite pampered. The menu is varied and accommodated vegetarians and gluten free diners. The wine list was inclusive. Would we return? Definitely!
Food sounded amazing on the menu but was a let down when it arrived to the table. Prices were too high for what we received. Our waiter did not seem to know the menu well. Also do not understand the crab claws appetizer, the dish just did not make sense to me.
Thank you for the feedback! Comments such as yours only help us to improve. Cheers!
We had a great dinner for two. It has the feel of an NYC restaurant tucked in to a corner of the village of Rhinebeck. Attentive staff and management, creative dishes on the menu, and great specials. We'll be back.
What a great experience from the moment we stepped through the door! Food, drink, ambiance and service all top notch. This is off Rhinebeck’s beaten path, but should be at the top of your list.
My wife and I had a great time. Congratulations on the opening and we will definitely be back for more date nights. The food, service and hospitality were all great and we are so grateful to have another good restaurant in Rhinebeck.
Thank you so much for stopping in! Cheers!
A great addition to the Rhinebeck dining scene. Dynamic, assured cooking, truly delicious food. Exceptionally thoughtful service.
Thank you for the kind words! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
