Very classy venue, decorated with a number of colorful paintings by a local artist. My husband had the "Frenched Chicken" and I had the "Cauliflower Steak." Both were delicious, attractively presented and reasonably priced. Our waiter, Greg, was very gracious and accommodating.

Definitely worth a detour if you are in the Poughkeepsie or Hyde Park area. Delicious food, pleasant & efficient service, & reasonable prices.

This chic, sleek contemporary place is an upscale eatery with an interesting menu and excellent, creative food and drink--amuse-bouche and all. For us it was a splurge--but we were marking a special reunion so it seemed warranted. Very pleasant atmosphere. Prices solidly high. But no...More

We share the curry mussels with noodle as our appetizer - was good! And the main were monk fish - was really good too; pasta with lamb - a bit "lammy" on taste and had a few soft bone in the source??? But good overall.

While the Artist's Palate has been a go-to spot for dinner, our latest visit was our first for lunch. They do lunch as well as they do dinner. The food here is always delicious and fresh. One of the gems in the area.

Small, cafe style eatery with an interesting selection of menu items. The octopus was much larger than I have had before, and a dry preparation, but tasty nonetheless. Salmon, duck breast and snapper dishes were all fine. Staff was pleasant, but service was quite spotty....More

Nothing short of amazing. Service, food...More

Last night my husband and I had a dinner date at a local restaurant that we had not tried before. After visiting their website, we saw that they opened at 4pm and decided to have an early dinner due to some later commitments. Once we...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.
