  • "We had a Fathers Day lunch/brunch here and it was really great. I had the smoked salmon platter (a great variation on an old standard) and the fish and chips (very fresh fish well prepared and tasty 'chips')."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Love Brasserie 292. The food is always excellent. If you love mussels you must get the mussels & fries. The tasso ham, leeks, cream has such a great flavor to go with the 2 dozen mussels. My wife just loved her mustard crusted salmon and potato gratin. We never miss at Brasserie 292. Thanks again!"

  • "My husband and I ate at this restaurant with another couple. We ordered 2 salmon dishes, 1 mussel dish and 1 chicken dish. We all really enjoyed our food but my husband thought the chicken was a little bland. The waiter did bring us a complimentary salad big enough for all of us. The location was perfect for us since we were seeing a show at Bardavon which was right around the corner."

  • "We live in Poughkeepsie, and are the type of people who really love to buy local, and support our local economy, so we make it our mission to frequent the restaurants in Poughkeepsie. Just recently, we chose the Brasserie 292, but had a very disappointing experience, and as a result we do not want to go back again any time soon. We purposely made an early reservation to give us enough time to really enjoy our dinner before a show, but nothing about our dinner was enjoyable. The service timing was really off, the salad boring, the entrée shrimp special was difficult to deal with, dry tasting, and for the most part inedible (we were never told that it would be served whole). We are very disappointed because we once really liked it there."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "This looks like an idealized Parisian bistro and is a beautiful space. The menu is nice but execution is average, making it fair to average value. Cocktails very interesting but my cocktail-blogging NYC friend found his Martinez undrinkable; waitress pleasant but no one seemed to notice a totally full cocktail glass at meal's end and no one asked why."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "From the decor to the menu, this is a real French brasserie, a taste of Paris in Poughkeepsie. Service is always attentive and food is always tasty."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Oysters on half shell were excellent Bouillabaisse was not traditional, but was excellent. Prawns on top were buttery, garlicky delicious, apparently broiled. plenty of seafood in the main soup. Beet salad was well made, plenty of beets!"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The restaurant is absolutely beautiful! High ceilings decorated with vibrant subway tile and a gorgeous white marble bar! Then the food! Oysters, strip steak & the most amazing seafood stew which was their Friday special!!!! Truly unreal!!!! I can't wait to go back! And try the French martini!!! Delic!"

  • "Great meal. Everything we expected and more. Great French food and very gourmet without being stingy. The service was impeccable. "

  • "We had a great time. I took my wife here for a romantic 44 year wedding anniversary and it was great. The food was amazing. Very unique food combinations (try the bone marrow and the fries au cheval). And the atmosphere was great. The staff was very very diligent and friendly and prompt.The manager knew exactly when to bring out the flowers I had arranged to send to the restaurant to surprise my wife. Loved the whole experience."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "We had the Thursday special of gnocchi. It was very mushy and the sauce of short ribs, kale and ramp with roasted turnips needed something added for more flavor. We shared a beet salad to start which was good. If we were ever in the area again . I might give this place another try. I do not like to make a judgement on only one try."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "After finding this gem we have revisited several more times. Lastly with friends after a night out. Great to be able to find fine dining serving late (after 9:30 pm no less) and taking reservations at that hour too. Staff was wonderful and didn't hurry us throughout seating,ordering and finally dessert. No disappointment for foodies and good wine list too. "

  • "I felt like I'm in a real Parisian brasserie, the ambiance was wonderful. Simple decor yet very tasteful and cozy. We had oysters - they were fresh and delicious. The food overall was very good. The service was also wonderful and friendly. We would come back."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "They have a great line up of older cocktails all made from local ingredents and great, not really made in alot of bars or places today. I believe there is a lack of talent out there to make these drinks. "

  • "A great find in the city of Poughkeepsie. With the Culinary Institute in Dutchess County it's amazing how few good restaurants there are. Brassarrie 292 is an exception. Great staff, great atmosphere, and of course great food."

  • "We were in Poughkeepsie on business and were lucky enough to find this restaurant through Open Table and its ratings. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. We would have returned there the second evening we were in town but it was closed on Monday night. My only quibble is that when we asked the waiter for a recommendation for Monday night, he sent us to the Mill House Brewery where our experience was far less positive. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Outstanding as always. Superb cheese plate. Luscious oysters with mignonette. Great mussels. BUT they are always out of the panna cotta! What gives? "

  • "I have been here before and loved it.My wife and i went back for her birthday,and it was not as good.Mashed potatoes were dry and the braised short ribs were dry and did not have the sauce they were braised in. . The dessert was ok but not consistent throughout.I am not sure if I will go back."

  • "This is a sleek renovation of a 19th century commercial space into a very Parisian-looking brasserie: high ceilings, mirrored walls, round booths, tiled floors, a beautiful mirror tall bar at front. Food fits : meules frites, steak frites, cassoulet in winter, fresh local veg, good pates, oysters, fish in season, excellent wine list. Hopefully will lead a restaurant influx to Main Street. "

  • "A friend and I had lunch at the Brasserie 292 for the first time. I was absolutely delighted with my lunch. Everything was delicious. I had a sandwich which was heavenly. I especially liked that they made their own catsup to go wit the fries. My dessert was decadent and wonderful. I can't wait to go there for dinner."

  • "The ambience of Brasserie 292 is wonderful--loved the décor--a neighborhood gem. The food was very good. The escargot, mussels, fresh pasta/crab and marscapone tortellini, and halibut were all prepared very well and the flavors were rich and yummy. Our waitress was delightful, helpful, and gave us just the right amount of attention. There seemed to be many locals dining here--if I lived closer, I would be back for sure."

  • "As we entered, warm and friendly welcome by a charming hostes started our night right. Place was packed, and hostess still made sure we were comfortably and promptly seated on time. Food was delicious and service was great. Mussels with Tasso Ham are the best I ever had. Tuna tartar and halibut are right next to it. Can't wait to be back. "

  • "We had a 4 people reservation and were given a very very small round table that could barely accommodate 2 people, this is not an acceptable dining experience!! If you do not have room for 4 people then do not take the reservation."

  • "I chose this restaurant to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. The setting is relaxed, yet cozy . The food and service were excellent! The wait staff was courteous and friendly. I don't think you could go wrong with any choice of entree here. We shared the beet salad as an appetizer, which was delectable. The lobster ravioli was phenomenal, and you could taste all of the individual flavors that went into making the dish. Sublime! The food is very affordable as well. Would definitely recommend for special occasion dining, or when you just want to go out and experience dining with a little extra flare! Brasserie 292 is a REAL GEM!"

  • "Definitely one of the best restaurants in the Mid-Hudson Valley. Such attention to detail and such profound understanding of flavor, consistency, texture... Incredible cocktails, as good as those at Stockade. My Manhattan was wonderful and the (partially candied) brandied cherries were the best I've had. Wonderful apps and entrees. I have had my fair share of home cured bacon, but none that I've had beats the swine they serve here. Salted caramel Pot de creme! The whipped cream and chocolate in this pot de creme were both only slightly sweet, so you are able to adjust the sweetness yourself with the layer of delicious caramel in between. It was actually refreshing. Never before have described a pot de creme as refreshing. Magical!"

  • "The ambiance and decor instantly transported us from being in Poughkeepsie to feeling like we were in Manhattan. The waitstaff was knowledgeable, available and not overbearing. The beer selection was very good with several rare microbrews on tap. The wine selection was not extensive, but very well suited for the fare and atmosphere. The star appetizer was the Pommes Fritas Au Cheval. We followed up with salads, dinner and dessert that were all very good. Unfortunately, they were out of many items on the menu and there were many substitutions. This made it difficult for the servers to keep track of and made ordering slightly confusing. We were smiling when we left, because Brasserie 292 delivered an experience that pleased the whole group."
