Seriously, Chinese cuisine? Looks like it, smells like it, but missing is authenticity...
There were 8 of us and we were seated upon entering, we did make reservations. The food overall was fair, it had many decorations of carrot flowers and broccoli and very small portions of what you really wanted to eat. They fried everything with a very crispy skin, a bit too long in the frier. Noodles were fine, with scarcely any meat. The soup was ok, I guess coming from a large city with plentiful of takeout and sit down Chinese restaurants the benchmark is tough to match, and surely it wan't matched in this restaurant. I can't say that the food was awful, but it could have been better prepared. They get very crowded quickly and I imagine that the kitchen staff is taxed beyond their means. The part that I did not like is that they tried so hard to turn the tables, that things were missing from the table and the service was super fast and rude. I think if they slowed down a little bit, they would have better quality food, better attitudes and better service.

They create the setting of a Chinese restaurant but the food was not even close to being good. The place was also a little worn down and a little unclean.

We ordered 2 different Assorted Appetizer Platters, one was vegetarian. The fried vegetable dumplings were practically inedible. The egg rolls were ok. All four of us thought the food was bad.The large pieces of romaine lettuce were delicious. It's as if they just picked from a garden. Our window looked out on a creek. The service was good. We were there at 8 PM on a Saturday night and it was pretty empty. That should have been our sign to try elsewhere. They have to serve better food.

The little bear is a rare gem in Bearsville NY just outside of Woodstock. Fresh food prepared right. Not typical Chinese, but a wonderful selection and nightly specials that will delight. Get a stream side table around Halloween and see the jack-o-lantern pumpkins all light up. Dont miss this great restaurant Try the Crispy Fish.
