“Best dining experience of our trip”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

This restaurant was a very pleasant surprise. We all ordered different dishes and each one was superb. The service was excellent. We would have gone back again the second night of our stay if they had been open. I highly recommend a meal here.

“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We happened upon Le Express last night and had the most unexpectedly wonderful dinner. The service was cheerful and competent without being overbearing, and the restaurant itself was charming. I had the heirloom tomato bisque and a kale-apple salad. Both of which were light, clean and delicious. My dinner companions enjoyed fresh pasta and halibut, which was perfectly cooked. We particularly enjoyed the chef's commitment to local, in season products, and well as the ample options for vegetarians or vegans. It's great to finally see a restaurant of this caliber in Dutchess County!

“Best kept secret”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Excellent food and service to please anyone.I have eaten here numerous times, and have yet to have anything less than an excellent meal. The appetizers which take up the first page of the menu, could be eaten as little plates given the wide variety such as Vietnamese sliders, PEI musssels, smoked trout and beet salad, etc. While this retaurant is in a strip mall the interior decor, is bright and open, with nice touch of sophistication. This is an excellent place to go and have a relaxing and/or romantic meal and is conducive to conversation.

“Return visit did not disappoint”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

We found this gem last year when travelling back from Florida to our home in Canada: we enjoyed our meal so much that when we decided this year to break our journey in Poughkeepsie it was a no brainer to go to Le Express again. The meal was just as special this time as it had been last year though we both tried different menu items. I had the Beef Bourgeon my wife the lamb sausage as our mains I started with the Chicken Liver Pate my wife the Parsnip Herb Soup we both had a gelato to finish with. Good wine list with good drinkable wines by the glass. Service was both friendly and efficient.
