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.
