Gourmet to a degree. Very good bistro food. Nice wine. Slightly pricey but worth it. It was much more than I expected for the area.

This restaurant was a very pleasant surprise. We all ordered different dishes and each one was superb. The service was excellent. We would have gone back again the second night of our stay if they had been open. I highly recommend a meal here.

We happened upon Le Express last night and had the most unexpectedly wonderful dinner. The service was cheerful and competent without being overbearing, and the restaurant itself was charming. I had the heirloom tomato bisque and a kale-apple salad. Both of which were light, clean and delicious. My dinner companions enjoyed fresh pasta and halibut, which was perfectly cooked. We... More

Excellent food and service to please anyone.I have eaten here numerous times, and have yet to have anything less than an excellent meal. The appetizers which take up the first page of the menu, could be eaten as little plates given the wide variety such as Vietnamese sliders, PEI musssels, smoked trout and beet salad, etc. While this retaurant is...

We found this gem last year when travelling back from Florida to our home in Canada: we enjoyed our meal so much that when we decided this year to break our journey in Poughkeepsie it was a no brainer to go to Le Express again. The meal was just as special this time as it had been last year though... More

It would be easy to drive by this little strip mall in Red Oaks Mill and miss a great dining opportunity. My husband and I have eaten her a few times and each time have not been disappointed by the menu. I still dream about a Brussels sprout appetizer I had here. The Chef has his way with creating flavorful... More

Hudson Valley Restaurant Week gave us the excuse to reach beyond the familiar, and a very nic meal at Le Express was the result. We arrived at 7, and were warmly greeted by both bartender and hostess. The pace of the evening was relaxed--we enjoyed our drinks at leisure before ordering, and the delivery of the courses was nicely paced.... More

We've been coming to Poughkeepsie for 4 years to visit Vassar and have made a point of trying every top restaurant in the area (Poughkeepsie and New Paltz) and this is one of our new favorites. We were very intrigued by the menu and tried to sample off of the more unusual dishes. Starters: Octopus, Chicken Liver Pate, Vietnamese Sliders.... More

I would give this restaurant 3.5 stars if I could. We made a reservation for 3 here after calling on Sunday (even though they are open, but on this website it says they aren't, however, on their main website it states that it is open on Sunday) because 2 out of the 3 people were tempted by the braised lamp...
