Lovely food, good service but all overshadowed by NOISE.
Even at 10 o’clock when we left and there were two small tables on the restaurant it was very loud.
I’m sure there are stylish ways of dampening sound these days

The food was delicious. The portions were too small. I was longing for more after the pasta course. Service was great and the atmosphere was great.

Thoroughly enjoyed beef tartare, octopus, ham hock terrine, rabbit garganelle and breast of veal. The service was very friendly and attentive and the presentation of the food was excellent. Great to see such a high-end and creative restaurant in downtown Newburgh.

My husband and I had dinner at Liberty Street to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Everything from the service to the food to the ambiance was fantastic! We both did the 4-course meal, with wine pairing. I loved the fact that you could choose each of your courses. The paired wines were perfect! And the servers were knowledgeable and always willing to answer questions. They even added personal touches of writing Happy Anniversary in chocolate on our dessert plates! Definitely recommend!

So if you are looking for great cocktails and a fantastic menu with really good French inspired food this is the place for you. When you add in the amazing cocktails and I suggest doing so, the total amount due can grow quickly. I wouldn’t go here for everyday eating but certainly for a special experience with service and food that won’t let you down. This is the place.

We had a great brunch with friends. Delicious cocktails and great food. The duck confit sandwich was amazing! Service was a tad slow but not bad. Server was very friendly, but not a lot of personality. They had an issue getting some oysters for us, so they just gave us the one they could get open at no charge, so great customer service there! Overall a true gem in Newburgh!

Once again, we had an exceptional experience at Liberty St. We started with delicious cocktails in the new lounge. Jessica was friendly and inventive.
Zach was our server for the second time and he is a very knowledgeable, very pleasant guy to deal with.
The food is just amazing...flavor profiles are on point. Home made pasta is always a must. The floating island deserts were a huge hit.

The past couple of times we went here I was very excited about the food and cocktail menu and it met my expectations. This visit the food was mediocre, especially for the price. Our server was lovely though.

Food was subpar - at best. The waffles were cakey & rather tasteless - as was the fried chicken skin.

Our second visit here, and and it was as good as the first. Dusk confit sandwich was tender, tangy and crunchy. Madame croque was to die for. Keep doing what you are doing!

Amazing food and drinks. We've been to Liberty Street several times. It's the only place we go out to eat. Last time we ate there the chef was kind enough to come say hi. We love this local joint and will continue to support it.

Best food I have had in the Hudson Valley! All four courses were amazing, and Zach (our server) made the experience even more enjoyable. Hat’s off to the whole crew! It was nice to eat a meal where everything was made in-house. We will definitely be back. Hopefully the veal will still be on the menu (hint hint).

Not worth what you pay for. The food was okay, but overall many dishes were too salty and were trying to do too much. Disappointed.

I just had my second brunch experience with Liberty Street Bistro and I really enjoyed myself. I usually dine alone and I appreciate that it really has a city feeling which makes the atmosphere conducive to dining alone. They have all my brunch favorites. I’ve also been here for dinner and that was even better!

Best new restaurant in Newburgh-Beacon area with terrific food sourced mainly from local farms. Chef Michael Kelly aims to surprise and innovate without getting fancy or complicated. Each dish, each bite lingers and makes you focus on nuances and subtleties of cooking and ingredients. The kitchen makes their own pasta and bread and most everything. The bartenders are always experimenting with new cocktails. The wine list shines for its variety and moderate prices. Now that LBS expanded to create a bar-lounge area, it's become a fun place to hang out anytime of the week.

Great restaurant. Interesting menu. Items that seem like they would be heavy aren’t, flavors or ingredients that you wouldn’t think would work together do. Service is great friendly. Can’t wait to go back.

Liberty Street Bistro is a must visit for foodies. The food is wonderfully prepared and fresh. The portions are small but each bite is out of this world. The variations of asparagus had four types of asparagus on a burrata with a citrus vinaigrette. It as so fresh and delicious. Service was amazing. We look forward to visiting again

A Special Place for The Hudson Valley

We did 3-course pairing and will always do so at Liberty Street Bistro. They just know how to perfectly match and compliment food and wine. Service was delightful and well-timed. We just thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We love the expansion as well! Nice new bar area with a relaxing setting. Dining area expanded and feels very comfortable. Congratulations on the expansion and THANK YOU for a wonderful night.

Second time here. Outstanding food & service. Very reasonable price for a 4 course meal using fresh, seasonal ingredients. Delicious turmeric cake - something different & not too sweet. Ambience is amazing - very nice for a date. Overall, excellent!

Liberty Street continues to outperform any of the local eateries -- Creative without being too fussy. A real gem that the Hudson Valley is lucky to have.

We went for brunch. Beautiful view with the flowering trees at the moment. Great place, very good simple menu, tasty. We seemed to be ignored at the beginning and had to call the waiter. They did apologize, that is only reason for taking away one star. Other than that it's a great find and we hope to visit again when in the area.
