Im so happy that I choose this place for restaurant week in The Hudson Valley, it was a 5star just walking in the door & the owner is the one greeting you and seating you.My friend and I waiting maybe 15min so we ordered a drink at the bar, the place was definitely busy. Reisling was very tasty.The ambience was very warm and family oriented, & all decorated for St Pattys day.My meal was spectacular, I started my app with the Honey shrimp over polenta, about 4 shrimp with honey balsamic goodness drizzled on it. For the entree I had the short ribs with red wine reduction over mushroom risotto, I almost licked the plate!! So delicious! I literally had to force myself to stop eating as we also had dessert to consider (go big or go home)!DESSERT OMG!!! RASPBERRY LEMON CAKE...again, almost licked the plate..all this for $33.95 folks, restaurant week doesnt get better than this! Bravo to a great meal and excellent service
If you’re on the search for a venue in this area, we highly recommend taking a look at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel. We had been to several venues and never had that “this is the place” moment until we visited the Grand hotel.
We may be a little biased because it was our wedding, but this was the best wedding we have ever been to! We had plenty of guests making similar remarks though which has made our claim feel validated. Many guests specifically complimented the speed of service, the ballroom and decorations, as well as the food and quality of service.
We booked the Regency Package, which gives you the larger ballroom (you need at least 100 guests but we were able to book it a few short of 100.)
For the price you’re paying, you get an incredible ballroom and also the catering is included. We still can’t figure out why the cost is lower than other venues in the area that don’t offer catering. Perhaps it’s due to the fact that they’re able to host so many weddings on the same night?
The amount you get for the price is amazing.
- The food is incredible
- The maître’ de and the head server make sure everything is going smoothly. You will always have a drink, a taste of any food you’d like, and will not have to keep track of the events and timing since they do it for you.
- The ballroom itself was beautiful. The option to choose any color uplighting for no additional cost was a huge plus.
- The process of preparing for the wedding was made simple. We worked with Gina, who was always available to answer our questions and gave us a detailed timeline of everything we would need to do far in advance so we were never feeling stressed.
If you’re searching for a venue, we highly recommend setting up a meeting with the Poughkeepsie Grand to see if it’s a match for you.
