We went here for the Monday night special. $28 per person for three courses- appetizer, Main and dessert. I had the duck pate,fish with lemon and capers and carrot cake. My husband had the salad, beef bourguignon and the tarte tatin. Everything was perfect! With an attentive staff, wonderful food and drink it made for a special evening.

The Chef (Jean-Jacques Carquillat) was ever present and was available to get immediate feedback on the dining experience. Food was prepared exceptionally well and the presentation excellent. Sadly, we were too sated to order and enjoy a very appealing desert! Great choice for anyone in the area!

We have been to this restaurant at least 10 times over the course of 20 years...every time we are "enchanted" by the food. The chef/owner is from France as are some of the waitstaff. Every dish is mouth watering. No surprise that it is considered to be the BEST French restaurant north of NYC<

Who would think one could find a truly excellent traditional French establishment in Kingston!? Very good wine list, good service and excellent food-it really works. Good for special occasions!

We had dinner here on a recent hiking trip in the area. The atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable, and the servers skilled, not only in getting the right things to the table at the right time, but skilled enough to let the evening flow at our speed. The appetizers were an interesting assortment, especially the vegetable napoleon, a sandwich of... More

I hate oysters - or at least I thought I did before I tried Le Canard's. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. The waiters are very knowledgeable and professional. The decor is teetering on kitsch but the place has a very homey feeling. I live in NYC, and I wish our French restaurants were as nice as Le Canard.

Have not been there in a while and glad I went this evening. Excellent drinks, wines and awesome bread on the table. Had a wonderful NY Strip cooked to perfection. My wife had the duck with an orange glaze which she loved. Our friend had the Sushi seared tuna, Three great tasty fulfilling dinners. Will go back soon.

Nice little restaurant in the town. Had lunch and it was good, service friendly. Inside is looking a little tired but the posters all add to the French feel. Would go back.

The duck is outstanding, escargot matches Paris and the bread is divine! Pretty French atmosphere and the people are very sweet! The owner is totally wonderful...
