Contemporary American
Liberty Street Bistro is a neighborhood eatery in Downtown Historic Newburgh. Located in the bustling Liberty Street Corridor, across from Washington's Headquarters, one can discover this contemporary American restaurant. The decor may be elegant yet guests can keep it casual and let the food be fancy instead! Classic French-influenced cuisine is deliciously served in a modern and simple style while embracing the community, culture, and bounty of the Lower Hudson Valley.

Fun Fact: Chef and owner Michael Kelly has cut his teeth in some of NYC’s greatest kitchens, including Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery and Markus Glocker’s Batard. Now, he’s crafting his own menu, bringing classic fine dining into a bold new era!

The ambiance and decor feels really private and upscale. The staff is very knowledgeable about the cuisine and drinks. They make dining out an experience. When you spend money, you want to feel like it’s for something. Liberty Street Bistro does that. It was a memorable night. The food was delicious and so were their signature drinks. I am from Newburgh and this is such a gem. We live out of the area now and frequent the area for our date nights. We have a new spot now! We will be back very soon!

Booked a pre-Thanksgiving dinner for my family and we couldn’t have been treated better or enjoyed it more. We all did variations of the tasting menu with excellent wine pairings. If you’re in the Beacon/Newburgh area you must make time for a meal here!

As always a great meal, taking a favorite dish and adding a wonderful twist. Our waiter was great, traditionally trained, very knowledgeable along with being friendly and efficient without rushing- thank you Zach.

The menu has recently changed adding a new carrot soup which was simply delicious. As always the service was very good, lots of attention to details and making sure all the guests are happy and comfortable.

I've dined here before and always had a great experience. I booked through OpenTable and mentioned it was my Anniversary. When we arrived our bubbly waitress mentioned this immediately and asked if he could send over a complimentary cocktail. We gladly excepted, it was 2 glasses of sparkling Rose. It was a wonderful surprise. We were there during Restaurant Week so the price was amazing. The portions are small but the food is incredible. The atmosphere and décor is hip and relaxing. I would highly recommend Liberty Street Bistro.

We have been here several times and each time is better than the last. The service is outstanding the servers are knowledgeable and helpful. The restaurant is spotless and the decor is warm and inviting. We usually make reservations but sometimes we don’t or we even plan to get there early and relax in the bar area. With so few choices in the area we appreciate the changing menu so we can come often and experience different and wonderful food.

Having received emails about this place for years, we were anxious to try it and chose Hudson Valley Restaurant week. Of note, this restaurant only honored the discount on selected dates during the 2 weeks. Instead of their usual $41 for 3 courses , it was $32.
That said, the menu had 4 categories but we were told that one course had to be chosen from 2 categories and the other 2 from the 2 others- basically you had to get a dessert. In addition, wine pairing was $20 pp for the 3 courses rather than $40. Sounds reasonable , but a bit confusing. Although food was good the portions were remarkably small- and we are NOT gluttons. Turns out the portions for Restaurant week WERE smaller than usual! AND, the wine offerings were also minuscule! Come on! If you want to intro folks to your restaurant, why cheap out on size—- particularly when you only run the promo for selected nights! 2 pastas were tasty-? But 3 raviolis? ; and 3 scallops ?; the gnocchi were the largest portion. Lamb shoulder tasty but a bit fatty. Desserts were good.
To sum up, it it a shame that they may be having a tough time financially to account for cheating out this way. If they are doing well, why not take the high road and put your best foot forward. Clearly, this will impact our decision for a return visit.

My second visit and thoroughly enjoyed the experience again. The only thing that was a bit off was the sweet potato gnocchi had a strange bitter aftertaste but that’s just my taste buds. My pork belly melted in my mouth. I also had a taste of risotto and scallops which were equally as delicious. The chocolate mousse enclosed in a hard chocolate shell was so rich but not too sweet. I do , however, think the wait staff could use a little more education on drinks and wine but service in general was very good.

The menu Liberty Street offered for Hudson Valley Restaurant Week was generous and almost exactly the same as their usual menu. At $33 rather than $55 it was excellent value, particularly considering the quality of ingredients used, sophistication of the offerings, and diverse, creative preparations. And it was all as delicious as ever, right down to the little rolls with sunflower seeds.
One member of my party received a different entrée than he'd ordered; wait staff offered to replace it, but he elected not to endure what was acknowledged to be a significant wait.
We brought our own wines - a grand cru and a first growth Burgundy - and were charged a $25 corkage for each. While the restaurant was within its rights to do so, it has levied only one corkage fee when we've brought 2 bottles in the past.

The food here is absolutely incredible. The pastas (a ravioli dish, a gnocchi dish, and a risotto dish) were truly mind blowing. The only dish we had that wasn't great was a monk fish entree, which was very average. The service was excellent. Ambiance is as good as could be expected from a store front on the street. The kitchen is fun to watch -- it is behind glass in the back, but not at all closed off. The wine was superb. The meal was a little expensive, but very well worth it -- we will definitely go back when we want to treat ourselves.

Liberty Street Bistro is hands down my favorite restaurant! There hasn't been a dish to date that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed when I visit them, which is often! Superb wine selection and cocktails as well. They're also able to accommodate a vegan menu with notice. It is truly an experience!

Exceptional food, ambiance, and service. We had dinner reservations for a group of seven. As each course was brought out we couldn't stop talking about and tasting each other's dishes. They were done with such creativity and care.

A 4 course fine dining experience, with a separate pasta course in the Italian tradition. In my case, squash was paired with a bright sauce and chttarra pasta. I enjoyed the trout with a cucumber-octopus salad.

Great food and drink. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. However, as the room filled up, the service got slower, resulting in a 3 hour tasting dinner which, in my opinion was a bit long.
