Group of 6. Love the funky location, the place is dimly lit and intimate as others have noted. Cocktails were excellent. I order the octopus to open, and it superb. I followed that with duck breast, which was also excellent, and the portion large. Others at the table were quite happy with meal, though one pork was overdone, but that... More

Down the block from the Bardavon, it's a perfect stop before a concert. We've eaten here twice now and really loved it both times. I remember a perfect salad served on a chilled slate slab, . It was a beautiful presentation and kept the salad nice and cold. We shared a dessert, which we rarely do, and were really glad... More

Probably one of the best restaurants in Dutchess County. Always an interesting selection. The tampinade is to die for served with fresh bread. Great fish and other treats. This should be on the top of everyone's list of places to eat.

I've had the chance to dine at The Artist's Palate several times since moving to Poughkeepsie earlier this year and enjoyed each visit. The ambiance is modern without being cold or clinical. The service on each visit was excellent with an attentive and helpful wait staff ready to provide details descriptions of the menu items and how each is prepared.... More

This was my first to the Artist Palate and I was pleasantly surprise. A friend had suggested it as they have been there before. The food was great and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

My eldest son and some friends went here for dinner. They loved it. Some very Musial menu choices. A young couple owns it and I think they attended CIA in Hyde Park, NY.

We've dined here several times in the past, although not recently, but with out-of-town guests on a Monday night decided to introduce them to Artist's Palate. They were wowed, as were we; it was one of the best, if not THE best, meals I've had here since we first started coming here eight years ago. The couple we brought are... More

I live in Poughkeepsie so I have been here several times. If you are staying downtown and don't want to drive definitely try this restaurant. It is on par with a Manhattan Restaurant.

A 70 seat American-Fusion Restaurant, the only one in the area using truly local ingredients and changes thier menu every two weeks based on the availability of products. Both the beer menu and wine list are extensive and reasonable. As well one of the only restaurants that say if we don't have we will do our best to get it for your reservation.
