Brasserie 292 combines the old-world charm of Poughkeepsie's historic Main Street district with a timeless, classic Brasserie fare. Diners can choose from a menu that boasts an impressive range of selections, from our Raw Bar to the Prime Boneless Ribeye, and includes a diverse wine and beer list. Once a popular garment destination, our inviting dining room has been transformed into a spacious haven that can accommodate over 80 people. We have a simple philosophy at Brasserie 292: use fine, local ingredients coupled with traditional cookery to create an incomparable and exceptional dining experience.

Great lunch

Just had lunch at Brasserie 292 and it was great. It's very quiet at the lunch hour which made for a good place for a lunch meeting. The steak and frites were delicious. The Bearnaise not that great though, but the steak didn't need it. I like my food salty, and it is salty so if you don't like... read more

Food is excellent. Sunday brunch has dollar oysters if you get there in time. Good jazz, too, but quite hard to hear the group. Downtown seems a bit dicey at night, so we prefer the brunches. And they have GREAT fries! Bar steak is always a good choice.

You have to try this place, just to see the inside of the old building. It is beautiful. The food is OK, not great, but, the ambiance of the place makes up for it. I feel like I'm in the city, in a small place when I'm there.

Excellent for Sunday brunch. A wide variety of dishes, some big enough to share, e.g., Eggs Benedict, Roasted Beet Salad. Soft live Jazz enhances the experience in this very French looking restaurant.

the service is excellent, the place is nice, and their oysters were good, but my bouillabaisse was quite bad and the fish my buddy had was hardly edible... The first wine I chose was not in stock and this is also something that should not happen.

From the minute we walked in until we left the entir staff was attentive and professional. Everything was done "right" even by the teenage bus boy. It shows proper management and training. We had a salad with smokes bacon, escargot, and oysters to start. All fantastic. The mains were a duck, beef, and sausage special for her and the steak... More

I have been to this restaurant multiple times and every visit is always a wonderful experience. I am very picky when it comes to dining out and I don't like to waste my money on crappy so-so food, which is why I find Brasserie 292 to be a constant good choice.

I felt like I'm in a real Parisian brasserie, the ambiance was wonderful. Simple decor yet very tasteful and cozy. We had oysters - they were fresh and delicious. The food overall was very good. The service was also wonderful and friendly. We would come back.
