A 70 seat American-Fusion Restaurant, the only one in the area using truly local ingredients and changes thier menu every two weeks based on the availability of products. Both the beer menu and wine list are extensive and reasonable. As well one of the only restaurants that say if we don't have we will do our best to get it for your reservation.

We have been to the Artist's Palate a number of times. The food is consistently excellent. This most recent visit was during Restaurant Week. Unlike many other restaurants that participate, they offered a very nice variety of choices. The food was wonderfully prepared and the portions were not sized down. Our party chose a number of different dishes and all... More

My husband and I had a great experience here during Hudson Valley Restaurant Week! Delicious food, impeccable service, fresh decor. The pierogies were great, the elk sirloin was super tender, and the Marquis Tower (chocolate mousse) was decadent and perfect. Since we have a limited budget for dining out, we usually only visit restaurants that post their HVRW menus online.... More

Had an amazing meal at Artist's Palate celebrating Hudson Valley Restaurant week. The staff is top notch and the meal was one of the best any of us have ever had. A fabulous restaurant for a special occasion or when you just want to try something unique and absolutely delicious!

My wife and I went during restaurant week. I had the most tender elk steak in a really good bourbon demi-glaze. The brisket stuffed pierogi appetizer was really good too. The chocolate marquis for dessert was heaven. I do wish they had a larger selection of bottled wine at the lower end of the price range.

I was at Artist's Palate last week with some friends. I ordered a Cod dish with veggie and rice. First of all, the portion was very small especially for the price. I asked for more fish and received an additional small portion. It was about $24 dollars for my dinner. Very high for a meager plate of food. I will... More
