We have been dining at Artist's Palate since it opened. While the menu is continually modified, the dishes remain fresh, inventive and delicious. This is a perfect spot for a business lunch or just a place to catch up with old friends. Service is always prompt and friendly.

From the initial greeting to the wave good-bye, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We were in town for a wedding, staying the the Grand Hotel, and looking for something within walking distance. Less than two blocks away doesn't get any more convenient. The service was excellent. We both had fish, and found it presented well, and cooked to perfection. We... More

We (two couples) had reservations at 6:30 on Valentine's Day and were promptly seated. After being seated, the host told us the the table is ours but they have another reservation for 8:00 - not a very professional or welcoming way to greet us. They offer a wine sample or a regular glass so I ordered a regular glass. When... More

Found free on street parking directly across the street (after 6pm). The interior is beautiful. Seats very comfortable. Food was dynamite! Desserts a must! Excellent service! My husband and I agreed that we wouldn't have changed one thing. My two kids (10 and 7) loved their meals. They were very accommodating to my kids special requests. The food, service and... More

My husband and I rarey venture out to Poughkeepsie. Tonight we made an unfortunate exception. Entering this establishment felt as if we had just entered a restaurant in Soho in N.Y.C. Not only based on its decor, but the price of their food as well....overpriced for this area. The hostess was a highlight for the evening. Offered us a pleasant... More

Sophisticated yet casual atmosphere. Even the silverware adds to the ambiance! The service is friendly, attentive and very professional. The food....OUTSTANDING! Several appetizers including tofu, a mixed meat/cheese plate, sides of brussel sprouts, fingerling potatoes, mushrooms; perfect! Entrees of Duck, ahi tuna, a ginger smoked apple soup, pasta with lamb....OMG....every dish was a party of flavor and just as beautiful... More

I have eaten here many times, for business and pleasure, usually lunch but sometimes dinner. There is always a good range of choices from lighter to substantial. The food is consistently great. Servers are attentive and do not hurry patrons along. Bright, airy, and welcoming!

Food is always excellent and service it top notch. Creative interior decor highlights local artists work on the walls. Local food sources and seasonal specials are common. Gehry salad is my go to for lunch and the add on salmon is always cooked perfect.

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.
