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.

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
