Passing through Poughkeepsie and saw excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. We booked a table and were not disappointed. It was restaurant week so there were regular menu items packaged up as a three course dinner at a discounted price ... A wonderful surprise. Our two appetizers, two entrees and two deserts were beautifully prepare and tasted as good as they... More

It happened to be restaurant week so the specials were a great value. We started with a great bottle of pinot noir. We each ordered off the specials menu and were very happy with the meal. Good ambiance and the server was good too. I would definitely dine here again.

The chicken I had was like no other I have eaten. The butternut squash dish which one eats out of the gourd was so tasty. The salad was also very good and of a decent size. An apple cobbler pie with vanilla ice cream downed with a delicious cup of coffee hit the spot. Also, the service was also very... More

We drove up from Manhattan to do some leaf peeping and set The Artist's Palate as our luncheon destination based on the Yelp reviews. Turns out, 5 stars is the accurate rating ! Wonderful food, lovely service and Megan, the owner chef stopped to chat and answer a few of our questions. Yup, it's 2 hours away but we'll be... More

We were a party of five who visited the restaurant for restaurant week. Some of us had previously dined at the restaurant. The food is consistently of high quality, the waiters efficient and friendly. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience. The portions were ample and the quality of food excellent. We will all return.

We went on a Friday night. When we entered we were the second couple in the place. Service was slow. Some of the food we had was good like the braised short ribs and some was bland like the sword fish. The fish was cooked perfectly but had little to no flavor. The dessert was similar we had the peanut... More

My wife and I had a reservation at this restaurant last night (10/17). It was our 1st time there, and we decided to go because of good reviews. 1. The waiter took our drink orders and came back about five minutes later to tell my wife that the bartender couldn't make any Bloody Mary's. We've never been in a restaurant... More

We found this restaurant as a perfect highlight for our weekend trip to the Hudson Valley. Our dinner Saturday night was delightful in every way. We found the food to be superb, the atmosphere chic, the service professional and the owner/chef, Megan, most impressive. Situated in downtown Poughkeepsie, it is restaurants like this that urban areas need. The minimalist atmosphere... More

Yes, yes, yes! Hurry up to Pooghkeepsie through the lovely mid Hudson valley area and arrive hungry to this charming and elegant restaurant. Long and lean, the restaurant gleams with glowing wooden floors, bricks and mirrors and graceful modern tables and chairs. Not merely tasteful decor, but carefully prepared creative versions of your favorite ingredients await. I had a dish... More

Recently I took my wife to Artist's Palate for our 30th wedding anniversary. I noted in the reservation request that it was our anniversary and that I would like a special, quite table and experience. When we arrived, in spite of my request we were just plunked in the middle of the restaurant. There was never any mention of our... More
