Perhaps the best restaurant in the area. Attention to detail, excellent service, perfectly prepared food. Amazing sun dried tomato pesto served with the bread (also amazing), A little pricey but worth every cent!!

Skip the drive to the Culinary in Hyde Park (our original plan, but they were closed in August). We had lunch for 3 friends this week. The interior was great with an original brick wall, tin ceiling and industrial steel lighting. We had 2 daily specials, cod with black rice & bok choy, and also the quiche of the day... More

We only spent 1 day/night in Poughkeepsie and came here for dinner. Nice ambiance, modern and quiet. The food was excellent. The four cheese onion soup was very cheesy and rich. Salad was crisp and perfectly dressed. Scallops fork tender. Well done.

We have wanted to dine here for a long time. They opened on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend so we could finally were able to go. After wanting to go there for so long, my expectations were high. I would say I was satisfied but somewhat less awed than I expected to be. The service was excellent. The food... More

The atmosphere and the food are perfect at The Artist's Palate. These Culinary Inst of America-trained owners/chefs are what make the food so memorable and delightful. The waitstaff are well-informed and attentive without being too in your face; they don't rush you along. There is an extensive wine list and wonderful bar drinks. Also, phenomenal desserts, a great place to... More

The food was among the best we had in the Lower Hudson Valley area. (Hearty fish and meat and adorable little cocktails.) Only issue was that we parked a few blocks away and were afraid we would get murdered on the way back to our car! (So we took a taxi:))

This is an excellent dining choice - the owner/chef, Megan is quite skilled in her food preparation and presentation. My husband enjoyed the lamb chops and my salmon was wonderful. Highly recommend.

Four of us had a wonderful meal on a Saturday evening. Did not feel rushed. Restaurant was busy good noise level. All dishes; pork, lamb, steak and pasta all cooked perfectly, good sized portions. Beet salad was very good. Cesar salad was ok, large. Deserts very good. Would be back.
