Friends in Rhinebeck suggested we try this place. Downtown Poughkeepsie was not my first choice but I was wrong. The Artists Palate was first-rate. Great service, lovely cocktails (apple cider with ginger rum--perfect autumn quaff) and I was blown away by the food. The Matisse salad as an app, then the duck. Perfectly seasoned, savory combination of ingredients. Nice wine... More

For our 44th anniversary we did our first trip to the Hudson River Valley, for a one week stay. We dined for lunch and dinners in Tarrytown, Poughkeepsie, and Kingston. Love the atmosphere and attitude of The Artist's Palate. Nice receptionist, seated the two of us at a table for four. Waitress was great and service very good. I had... More

We split the Lobster Mac n Cheese, the snapper on black rice, and the chocolate mousse cake. We can't wait to return. Pleasing in every way. Fantastic atmosphere.

Here for a business trip, we stopped in based on a google search and were the first lunch customers. Service was excellent and friendly. The food (brisket sandwich) was just perfect. You won't be disappointed.

We don't know much about this city, but we decided to use it as a convenient base for touring the Hudson Valley, and were absolutely flabbergasted by the superb meals offered at this downtown restaurant. We ate there two nights in a row, lured back the second night by the attractive, relaxed atmosphere, the talented bartender and great wine list,... More

Tough to park, but the food is worth the search. The menu is always changing and the food is so fresh. They always give you a little taste tease while you are waiting. Service is good as well. The place is not large, so make a reservation!

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

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.
