My wife and I had dinner here while on vacation in the Hudson Valley. This restaurant is a gem. The grilled Portuguese octopus appetizer was one of the best octopus presentations I have ever enjoyed. My wife had a very authentic duck confit, and my...duck breast was also very good. Wine list included a very reasonably priced French Sancere. An added bonus was our server - Garrette. Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. If you are in the area and are looking for great meal, served well, in a charming French bistro atmosphere, this is the place.More

Go here. We were in town visiting Vassar and looking for a nice meal out. We arrived without a reservation and the staff were accommodating even though it was a busy night. Service was prompt, but relaxed. Everything we ordered was delicious - octopus, soup,...confit, burger, lamb shank. Nice wine by the glass options and a local IPA. The value to price was exceptional. So glad we stopped in! Easy street parking out front.More

We have been here before a few times and the meals were touch and go with some being excellent and some being terrible. We had a wonderful meal tonight with everyone thoroughly enjoying everything from the appetizers through dessert and including the drinks and coffee....Thank goodness they upped their desserts, they were amazing, unlike prior visits. Bravo, Brassiere 292!More

We were fortunate to get a reservation on a cold Saturday night, but we’re glad they fit us in for a dinner. It was superb from start to finish - staff was welcoming, friendly, and quite professional. We enjoyed the appetizers of French onion soup,...fried tofu, and even the smoked peewee potatoes (really perfected). The meals were similarly stellar and they even made a custom vegan dish, to accommodate dietary restrictions. The wine list is nice, with something for everyone and excellent curated by the glass choices. It can get loud, given the tiled walls and tin roof, but the packed house speaks volumes…More

Brassiere 292 was an excellent choice for a date night. The ambiance was exactly as advertised and the service was prompt, prepared, productive and polite. I ordered the Duck Confit, for the first time in my life, and it’s safe to say the meat was...perfectly cooked. The lentils added additional flavor to the dish. My date ordered the shrimp Provençal and that was the better of the two meals that we had. Wow, what a dish it was. The shrimp pasta combination is undefeated and the additives brought it all together. We will definitely be going back to try other items on the menuMore

Definitely a big disappointment from the drinks to the apps . The dry aged sirloin steaks were just awful needed a saw to cut through. The mashed potato on the side Tasted like instant potatoes. Service was good. Definitely better places to eat for the...money it wasn’t cheap meal look elsewhereMore

The service was very good. The food was just ok. Expected more. Very sad that lunch was super slow as well. They said they couldn’t serve us rolls due to the pandemic. Sort of an odd response considering they could have just tough out a...single roll on a plate vs a basket.More

I've visited several times, and fluctuate between the rabbit or duck, which are always very well prepared. Also one of the few spots around, who make a proper cocktail. Certainly recommend stopping in if you've never been.

Been here a number of times. Never seen the same waitstaff twice, and last time was especially inept. Uninspired french cooking at best, never again as good as in the first months when the place opened. I suppose if you tried everything on the menu...you might find something that you like. Last time I ordered omelette, frites, and wine, and they couldn't even get that right - frites were cold straight out of the kitchen. After much bumbling, excuses, bad food timing and only six tables for the waiter to work, I was pretty fed up considering it was a $100+ lunch. But voila! Surprise!! The check came instantly when requested.More
