“Great Place for Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We have eaten at Crew several times in the last few months and always agree it serves amazing food! Whether the regular menu or the specials it all is done to almost perfection.Watching the Chefs in the open kitchen is a show of its own. They have a great bar and wine list. The place can be a little noisy and the "strip mall" location are the only slight negatives.

“Our favorite restaurant in Poughkeepsie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Poughkeepsie is blessed with a number of very good restaurants. For us, Crew is hands-down the best (including the surrounding burgs). Three years ago we brought our daughter to see Vassar. After a long day on the road, we were tired, hungry, and on the way to cranky. Through a phone app we found Crew-- which is in a strip mall, so we weren't sure. But we went in and had a delicious, spirit-lifiting meal. Since then, we have been back numerous times. We love the staff - especially the hostesses and bar staff. The food is outstanding. The caprese salad is the best I've had anywhere: home-grown tomatoes, basil, and house-made mozzarella. In the winter, we always have pasta dishes that truly warm us from the inside out. And the wine selection is great. Love everything about this restaurant, and we will eat there on every trip to Poughkeepsie.

“Can't wait to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Had our first dinner last night at Crew which had been highly recommended. (Don't be put off by the strip mall location.) Once you're inside, the decor and staff are welcoming, and there are interesting and creative menu choices for everyone from committed carnivores to fish fans and pasta people. Everyone in our group raved about their dinners. Great wine and beer selections at reasonable prices. The dessert choices sounded yummy, but all I had room for was a taste of the limoncello gelato. Next time, I'll be sure to save room.

“Friendly, tasty, casual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

The kind of place where you can enjoy food made by CIA graduates in an informal setting. Portions are large and flavorful. Liked the pasta. Also has a bar.

“Good Meal with Room for Improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

There's a lot to like at Crew. The room is attractive and was buzzing with energy on a Saturday night. The wine list is interesting with some uncommon options and offers bottles at a range of price points. The food was good but didn't always measure up to expectations. The salads were great, but somewhat over-dressed. The orrichette with chicken was excellent. The eggplant rollatini was less so, seeming a little tired. The service was friendly. Crew does not take reservations, which is odd given its aspirations in terms of quality and service. The space is small, and the bar was packed. We spent 20 minutes browsing in the adjacent beer store while waiting for a table. Crew was good, but has room to improve.
