The food was delicious and beautifully presented and both owners took time to chat with us. We will certainly eat there again.

I met a friend for lunch who had suggested Le Express ( I had never heard of it). We had an incredible lunch. The atmosphere is very relaxing and pleasing, the service was very personal, and the food was extremely fresh. Definitely going to try for dinner as well.

I ventured here alone on a tip from a Vassar professor. Could not have been any better. The beet salad, the chicken liver pate, the trout special. All of it was amazing and I can't wait to return to the Hudson Valley so I can return. Thank you John and your staff for a wonderful dinner.

We really enjoyed our dinner - all the food was well prepared and very good. We had the Hanger steak, Steak Au Poivre, and the pasta special and they were all very good. The staff was very attentive, knowledgeable, and professional. Nice wine list and by the glass options too. The restaurant is off the beaten path in a small... More

I dined here for restaurant week last March and I have been meaning to review but just kept forgetting. The food was very very good. My Fiance and I ordered a few appetizers along with our entrees and desserts to sample different items on their menu and every single thing we got was perfectly prepared and very unique. They had...

After hearing great reviews, we visited with friends on a Saturday night. The restaurant is small but cozy. Everyone was pleased with their food. The service was friendly and unobtrusive. Definitely a great find for an adult dinner out.

Visited Le Express for dinner on Friday, 11/7 during Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. Their online menu caught our eye. Our waitress was friendly and accommodating. She asked if we wanted anything from the bar. I asked what Bourbons they had. She explained that she would ask the bartender. She promptly came back and told us that the bar had "Jim... More

We've been to this restaurant several times and are never disappointed. It is Restaurant Week and we both enjoyed our meals. The Beef Bourguignan was excellent.

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.
