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.

I believe Artist's Palate does excellent catering, since they provide meals for the higher administrators at my place of employment, but I have been very dissatisfied with my meals there. The first dinner, years ago, for my brother's birthday made me so excited because the menu seemed exciting and the place looked dynamic, but the food was dull and the... More

The owner Megan came out and congratulated us and gave us complimentary bottle of champagne and dessert . We will definitely be frequenting this... More

This was our second time dining here (the first was during a Hudson Valley Restaurant Week a few years ago), and we wanted to dine at a place near the Bardavon Theatre where we were going to see a movie later that night. We were seated quickly upon arrival, and in a few minutes were greeted by our server, Christine.... More

Specifically went to Poughkeepsie to try this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Hip modern interior and great food. The fried tofu squares with daikon and carrot slaw was amazing. The four onion soup was one of the best we've had. We were on a mini vacation in the area and had been eating out quite a bit. In comparison... More

It's an impressive looking restaurant when one walks in and it has innovative tableware. However the kale and goat cheese risotto lacked flavor. The duck was better but the Brussels sprout leaves and mushrooms that accompanied it were just OK. The chocolate marquis dessert is a mouse. It was good but not great. For these prices the tastes ought to... More

While revisiting our favorite local places since Frank was diagnosed with Celiac, we realized we had never been to Artist Palete. Someone suggested it and have to say that although there was not a separate GF menu, our server Dave was very knowledgeable and helpful in making choices. There was plenty to choose from. Frank had the onion soup sans... More

Three of us for dinner on a Tuesday evening. We visited this restaurant based on the great reviews we had read, and they were spot on! This is one of those restaurants that delivers at all levels. The service was great, the food was exquisite and we really enjoyed the entire event. The menu changes from time to time, and... More

I have been at this restaurant several times. The food is always excellent. They use fresh, local ingredients and have a creative chef. Tonight I had the prix fixe menu which consisted of 3 courses and a small morsel to begin with (excellent salmon ceviche followed by an onion/apple tart, slightly blackened salmon on forbidden (black) rice and a root...

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.
