Well, you could possibly want to marry the entire wait staff. Or just move in to the restaurant dining room. You'd be in Paris. In France. Amazing food. Beautiful rooms. Exquisite service. What more do you want? A plane trip?

Get the duck. Simply amazing. A little on the pricey side, but certainly worth it. You won't be disappointed

Every time I eat here, I feel like I am a cousin coming for a visit. The reception is warm, and I welcome the European cheek kisses. The soups are outstanding, and the desserts are sometimes eaten before the entree because they are that good! Entrees vary with the season, dinner has always been better than lunch.

Admittedly, this was our first French restaurant experience, but it will likely be our last. The food was good, the waitresses were very nice and service was good. However, nothing that we were served deserved to cost as much as it did. The trout almondine was ok. The trout was very small, and there was lots of white rice. But... More

I have gone here many times, including for years for office Xmas private parties. Mostly great food, the only French restaurant in the area. But sometimes it feels a bit off kilter there and gloomy. Waitstaff sometimes odd.

Went for Christmas Eve dinner, this was our third visit. My family all enjoyed their meals. The french onion soup is perfectly balanced with sweet caramelized onions, beef stock and cheese, I have to say it's even better then mine, I'll have to hit the kitchen and work on my recipe! The snails were tender and garlicky, perfect for the... More

My family and I have been frequent visitors at Le Canard Enchaine over the past 7 years. Every visit has been better than the previous one!- The atmosphere, the food, the service- simply perfect! Last Sunday we had the French Onion Soup- I still feel the good taste! We also had the Duck Liver Pate and Tossed Mesclun Salad- AMAZING!... More

Excellent lunch began with a pleasant seating and then the scrumptious onion soup. The entree we chose was superb... Coffee and dessert. Yes! But only because it was too pleasant to leave. :) thoroughly enjoyable.

We have dined at Le Canard in Kingston, many times over the past few years. It is consistently one of the finest meals one can have. It is an authentic French restaurant, but is not pretentious. The owner/chef left the tumult of NYC restaurants, years ago, for this somewhat distant location for us (we're from NJ). Nothing on the menu... More
