Swoon KitchenBar in Hudson Don't believe the hype

Hi,
Just got back from Swoon KitchenBar in Hudson tonight. Heard so many great things from friends, along with the Poughkeepsie Journal 5* rating on the restaurant, and had to try it. I have to say I was pretty disappointed. Atmosphere was ok, but the tables and chairs are totally uncomfortable. Service was mediocre at best. Food was just ok. Had the crispy squid to start, day boat scallops for dinner, and chocolate cake for dessert. I don't know if I got them on an off night or not (monday night), but I was totally not impressed. Plus they charge $14 for a glass of chardonnay which isnt anything special. I would much rather take my money to Mina in Red Hook which has a million times better atmosphere, service, and food. I hope I do not offend anyone here with this post, but I think Swoon is overrated, and would not drive out of my way to return.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
