About Willow by Charlie Palmer at Mirbeau - Rhinebeck
Mirbeau Inn & Spa Rhinebeck offers the amenities of a French chateau, a world-class spa, and casually elegant dining, all with the comfort and residential feel of a private estate.
We have eaten @ Willow before. However, planning a Thanksgiving celebration with the family left everyone with “high anxiety.” Chris & Carly could not have been more accommodating. Chris truly bent over backwards to make us feel comfortable during this trying time. We had three separate tables & ate outside on the terrace. He even rolled up the plastic window to allow the fresh air to come in. The wait staff was fantastic! The “little” waitress was exceptional. Last but not least, everyone loved their meal including the four children.
The service and all staff. A+
If you are looking to escape the dreary real world, then immediately make your reservations at Willow at Mirbeau in Rhinebeck. Cleanliness, creativity and cuisine meet up for a fabulous breakfast, lunch or dinner at Willow (and yes, we had all three meals during our overnight stay at the hotel). We enjoyed a farm fresh breakfast delivered to our room that included thin sliced avocado, fruit, eggs in variety of preparations, thick cut bacon, and piping hot coffee. Lunch was in the Main dining room nearest the lovely fireplace with a bottle of Brut. Our table of three's order included a shared caesar salad, carmelized onion soup, hamburgers with an aioli that elevated the mundane, french fries doused in truffle parmesan that needed no ketchup, and the streak frites cooked to perfection. Later that evening after a trip to the spa, our party arrived at Willow and greeted by our server, Asia. She settled us into a private table on their enclosed outdoor patio for a cozy birthday dinner. We enjoyed fun seasonal drinks and lovely wine list with our appetizers of the special sweet & sour calamari & roasted brussel sprouts. We were overjoyed with a table side visit from Chef Xavier James~ who took a moment to generously share his soulful thoughts on the evening's food preparations and feelings on the importance of using local food sources to support sustainability and small farms. We shared the crispy roasted chicken with farro, roasted rack of lamb, fresh halibut, and steak entrees. We also indulged in a sampling of several desserts for the birthday boy at our table. All were memorable as perfect conclusions to a lovely evening. Thank you to Asia, Xavier and the Willow staff! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Fabulous food, drink, service and atmosphere! Our new favorite restaurant!
wonderful service, delicious food, relaxing atmosphere
Service was extremely slow on our waitress’ part. We noticed the tables around us were frustrated as well that she was not coming around to check on tables etc. Food was good and atmosphere was nice.
We had a lovely lunch. The food was delicious. We plan on returning very soon.
Always awesome food and service. We LOVE air.
A top-class restaurant. Everything was splendid. Can’t wait to return in a month.
The food was amazing and I did like the ambiance of the grounds. However, seeing several strands of hair on my pillows and sheets honestly ruined my trip. I appreciate being compensated 25 dollars and switched to another room at night. Just noting how expensive this trip was and not to receive the upmost care when it comes to cleanliness, I was highly disappointed!
Food was a 10. From appetizers through desert, each item was prepared to perfection and the flavors were amazing. We had room service for a breakfast and a dinner in addition to dinner once in the dining room. Every meal was as good as it could be.
Thoroughly enjoyed the food! Juat wasn't happy w the cocktails. Not much liquor in them.
Outstanding tagliatelle with flavorful Alfredo sauce with mushrooms. Rack of lamb was generous portion, perfectly cooked with great grilled flavor. Halibut was overcooked and a small portion for the price. Cheese cart was ridiculously priced at $6.00 an ounce with a selection of only 3 cheeses. Wine sommelier was knowledgeable and helpful, Female wait staff was curt.
Great Brunch Experience!
Waitstaff was very friendly, professional and accommodating. Food was excellent. We will definately be back.
An outstanding dining experience!
Food and service were great. I also really enjoyed the wine I ordered by the glass - Bordeaux Blend. It didn’t taste like it was opened the previous night and it was great wine for the cost. I appreciate that. It was a real joy to eat in a proper restaurant with real silverware and glasses with stellar food and service that knew what they were doing. Can’t wait to come back. Thank you! BTW- front desk staff and hostess were also very nice. See you soon!
Always a pleasure being there
Lunch was lovely, have already recommended. Will continue to. Rhinebeck welcomes you!!
Service was terrific; all of the staff was extremely attentive. Looking forward to a return visit
