Sometimes you wanna go out before the crowd gets crazy during the New Year’s Holiday season. This restaurant was local for me and had very nice ambience. A French cuisine was the plan but I ended up choosing the special of the night. Monk fish...More

Visited on 12/29/17 for lunch and brunch on 12/31/17. Service was attentive, food excellent on both occasions. The onion soup and bisque were both served hot the way they should be, frites were outstanding as were the sandwiches. We will definitely return!

A true bistro with great food, wine and friendly service. We have gone there twice during our short stay in Poughkeepsie and will be going back for sure each time we visit. We would be regulars if we lived there.
