This was my first time spending the night in Poughkeepsie (despite many trips to NYC straight from the train station). Since I knew I would be arriving late, I made a reservation for 9 PM at The Artist’s Palate on OpenTable. Within the hour, the...More

The entire meal from bread to apple fritters was phenomenal. I had the salmon which was seared to perfection. Michael, our waiter, provided great service and made sure to make us feel like we were his only concern. 5 stars to the food, the environment,...More

We have eaten there several times, usually revolving around events at Vassar College. The food has always been very good. Nice, comfortable atmosphere. The only negative I have is that they aren't the best at actually having a table ready at your reservation time and...More

Everything -- service, food, drinks, music, interior -- was perfect! We had the duck and ricotta dumplings. Both were insanely delicious. The staff is friendly and accommodating without being intrusive. Highly recommend.

One of the most enjoyable meals I’ve had in a long time. The Buttermilk Potato soup, scallops, and deconstructed dessert (ahhhhhh) were fabulous!! Loved our waiter, Michael, and enjoyed meeting fellow Texan, Chef Chris. If you have a chance, you HAVE to visit this restaurant....More

We had the chef’s selection 6 course meal and each course was better than the previous course! Truly the new chef, Chris, is a master culinary artist. Mike, the waiter, couldn’t have been more attentive, informative and engaging. A great experience.

The gimlet was delicious. The scallops luscious. The duck was probably cooked to perfection but a bit rare for my liking. Our waiter Greg was helpful and attentive- but not overly so. All in all, this was a good time at a comfortable place. We'll...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.
