Better than 5 stars

If I could give this six stars I would. Been here about five times for lunch and it's always outstanding. Last time I had a veal scallion special that was delightful. Had as I often do the cognac snails as an appetizer and I followed everything up with an almond tarte pie. Each time I've been... read more

Some of the best French food in the Hudson Valley or anywhere. The duck, fois gras,escargot, tarte tatin--the real thing!

It doesn't get much better than this. Jean-Jacques and his crew offer up a daily selection of freshly prepared French cuisine, with daily specials for lunch on weekdays which are often half the normal price but offering the same full-plate proportion. And don't forget to try their homemade desserts. They service many of the leading hotels and restaurants in Manhattan... More

Old world French cuisine. Chef has mastered the art and creates masterpieces. Serving size is above average for french food, but the deserts are both generous and magnificent . Highly recommend. Had eaten here at least 6 times.

Good French style bistro. I've had very good meals and meals that were less than that, but still fine. Nice atmosphere.

I eaten at the restaurant many, many times over the years. I had lunch a few weeks ago with my wife and we shared a Cassoulet. It was just what it should have been, preserved duck legs, sausages, lamb, beans, piping hot and truly delicious! The time before that my wife and son and I had our traditional Christmas Eve...

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Le Canard Enchaine just before Christmas and what a magnificent experience it was! When you step into the restaurant you are transported to France. It is a charming bistro with high tin ceilings, brick walls, and classic posters and photos. It was festively but tastefully decorated for the holidays with... More

Had dinner with a friend on Christmas eve, no reservations, but they welcomed us with a nice cozy table. service was excellent, waiter made us feel very comfortable, food was excellent, especially my trout fillet cooked to order as I am forbidden to eat nuts, so no almonds for me. Nice friendly atmosphere. Had a lovely time.

I visited Le Canard Enchaine on a recommendation and was glad I went on a recent visit to Kingston. It is a surprising find in a somewhat edgy downtown. The food and the service were very good and at lunch very reasonable for French food. I had a Croque Mousier (basically a French grilled cheese sandwich) and it was perfectly... More

I have been eating here for years and find it to be one of my favorite restaurants in the United States and last night was no exception. Food quality , presentation, service and atmosphere all first class. I had the Duck LaRange, the skin was crispy, the meat moist the sauce divine. I drive here from Westchester and it's always...
