A word from Boitson's Restaurant
An old storefront in Kingston's Historic Uptown District, a simple sliver of a space, has received a sumptuous update by its new tenant: Boitson's Restaurant. The menu is American, refined, yet comfortable from Trout Meuniere to Fried Chicken. The dining area is a carefully considered homage to both the upscale bistro and the "old man" bar. In good weather, the back deck, with views of the Catskills, is another of Boitson's many secrets awaiting to be discovered.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We love boitsons and it needs to stay in business forever or at least as long as I am able to raise a fork"

  • "This restaurant blew me away. The back patio seating was beautiful and had a great vibe but it also had an amazing view. I did not sit inside but even walking through the inside had a personal almost romantic feel. Great wine and cocktail list with unique drinks and great prices. The food was absoultely amazing. Beautifully plated and the dishes we picked had such a unique flavor profile. My boyfriend and I highly recommend the pan seared monk fish and the linguine blue crab."

  • "The Cauliflower Wings are wonderful. Both my dining companion and I had issues with our main selections. My main course salad was very overdressed, to the point that the greens were limp. The salmon's molasses and mustard glaze was too heavy and too sweet for the fish (and would be too heavy for even beef or chicken) and I scraped it off. My friend's meal of polenta with wild mushrooms and greens left a lot to be desired with thick, heavy blocks of polenta."

  • "We all have a favorite spot and when family or friends come to visit and we bring them, it doesn't work out. Well not only did Boitson's come through but now other family members want to go. The service was good, we had a new waiter but the more experience ones watched over. The food was good, we had the Fried Chicken special which I've been craving for a while. And dessert hit it out of the park. The cocktails were a hit and the coffee a nice finish."

  • "We love this place, the vibe, food, bar, help, staff; last night we had a great corn, avocado bean salad with chicken and adorable yummy lobster roll sliders; watermelon gazpacho soup was so-so, too liquidy but who cares. and they have good wine and GREAT catskill cocktail drink. This is where we go when we need a night out among great folks!"

  • "Boitson's is an uptown jewel in the world of food and libations. Small in stature...huge in talent and taste! Friendly, comfy, foodie delight are just a few of the descriptives I use to tell people about Boitson's. Worth the ride, worth the wait if necessary. They offer a wonderful cocktail list to enjoy while awaiting your meal. The back deck is a wonderful place to while away the end of the day taking in the colorful sunsets over the mountains. The food is great, service is timely and ambience delightful... and the Fried Chicken is the best!"

  • "We decided to try Boitson's Restaurant in uptown Kingston on Saturday evening. It was easy to get a reservation, when we arrived, they asked if we wanted to sit in the outdoor patio. Since it was our first time there, we were not familiar with patio space. The hostess told us to go look at it and decide if we wanted to sit there since it would be a 30 minute wait. When we looked at it, we agreed it was worth the wait and we were glad we waited. There was a beautiful view of the sunsetting over the Catskill Mountains from the patio. Our appetizers, main course and desserts were all fantastic and the Service was very good and attentive. We will definitely return and most likely bring others with us so they can share i nthe experience. "

  • "The dining room is small but there is outdoor dining, but when it rains the dining room fills up fast. We had a few drinks at the bar while we waited for our table and ultimately ate at the bar instead. Our bartender was friendly and attentive and made good drink and oyster suggestions. The mussels and fries dish is a must, and get some bread to finish up the sauce. Hanger steak and frites was a very satisfying dish, though forgettable next to the mussels. Finished up with Creme Brulee, a popular choice for good reason."

  • "This is our go-to place whenever we want to eat out casually; the best cocktails, best fried chicken, love the burgers, fries and now trying to be healthier and had a great barley risotto with vegetables; hold the good bread and desserts. love the mood, lively, everyone at the bar. Just wish it would have more chicken and other fish besides salmon and trout.... "

  • "Our party of 5 was seated promptly (we had reserved the front window seat), had great service and another fantastic evening at what is becoming one of our favorite restaurants in the Hudson Valley. We dined on a Thursday night and there was a steady stream of patrons both at all the tables and the bar. It is great to see a good place busy! My husband and I first had our celebratory dinner a week after our wedding and was impressed by the menu, ambience and service - and we had been looking for another time to make it back. Can't wait for the warmer weather and some outside dining soon!"

  • "We were in the area from MA for a college visit at Bard and Boitson's was definitely a highlight. The menu included farm fresh and local produce, with several creative choices for my vegetarian daughter. We will be going back on college move in weekend!"

  • "This is now one of two favorite places in the 'hood, or across the river from my hood. We love it so; and last night for the first time we ate at the bar, and loved it; schmoozy fellow diners inhaling big beef and lemon tarts, great cocktail, love the bartender and we shared food that was as good as always!!!! and affordable"

  • "This is hands down our favorite local date night place. The food is consistently well prepared, and the menu is imaginative without being pretentious. The fried chicken is as close to perfect as I've ever had. The gnocchi with crawfish was a delicious combination. The raw bar usually has several tasty oyster options. It's just good food. Equally worthy of note is the cocktail menu. Service is well paced. The dining room is a little tight, but that's just something you've got to accept with such a popular place. Same goes for the noise level, which can be a little high, but doesn't impede conversation. The decor is warm and swanky at the same time. Dining on the deck provides a really nice alternative, with an amazing view. Fantastic place."

  • "Boitson's is my personal favorite Kingston area restaurant and I go there for every special occasion. It was the site of my wedding dinner March 30, 2013, so it was the only choice for my 1st anniversary dinner. I have never been disappointed in the food or service at Boitson's and look forward to many enjoyable dinners there for many years to come."

  • "we love this restaurant, great food, vibe, wine, cocktails, servers, our go to place for yummy burgers, salads, the best fried chicken north of the Mason Dixon line. Can't miss, and super prices too. Even the bread and butter is good"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "The wait for our food after we ordered was unbearable (close to an hour). The server was apologetic, explaining it was a small kitchen and everyone had come at once. And, the kitchen belatedly sent out a comped appetizer (which arrived at the same time as our food). Not sure why the table next to us, which arrived after us, got their food and finished eating before we got our food. And, when our food arrived, the cheeseburger didn't have cheese (oops). All in all, a very forgettable (and a bit regrettable) of a dining experience. Also, the restaurant is dimly lit, making it difficult to read the menu and to see the food."

  • "We have eaten here a couple of times & the food & service always very good. They change the fish dish on the main menu often which can be a little disappionting if you realy liked one of the dishes. The seating area is long & thin which is not ideal for large partys & it runs parrallel with the bar again a bit of a squash,but strangely this is what gives it the atmosphere. Its advisable to book because it always appears to be busy. In general a great place to go for dinner."

  • "Very good again, though my vegetarian rice and eggplant stew was so so; spicy and not all that interesting and a pricey $18; the fried chicken and burgers and salmon are far superior. Catskill cocktail always great"

  • "My husband and I were looking to try a new restaurant on Saturday night and thanks to OpenTable we were able to quickly get one of the few remaining reservations for Boitson's. We had heard very positive buzz about the restaurant and I'm pleased to say we weren't disappointed. The drinks were generous in size and so were the portions for both appetizers and meal. We both chose the grass fed rib-eye for the main course and it was one of the most tender, flavorful steaks we'd had in a long time. The service was excellent and we felt well attended to. The ambiance is lovely, but due to the small size of the location and the bar, the volume was a little loud. You definitely need a reservation. We'll definitely be going back!"

  • "although the food was great - I have to wonder about the classification of certain items as gluten free. order the cauliflower wings (delicious) and the steak frites (also delicious). And although both were classified as gluten free, I wonder if both of the fried items were cooked in oil in which they also cook floured items. Within an hour of eating, I had a very severe gluten reaction, and this really dampered an otherwise great experience."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Local inspired drinks, unusual but awesome appetizers where unlikely foods are paired as well as great spices and flavors on main course offerings, make boiston's a must go to restaurant!!! Either go early or make a reservation - you can wait at the bar - all are worth it!"

  • "My boyfriend and I went to Boitson's for Valentines day. I ordered the fried chicken which was really tasty. My boyfriend ordered the steak frites which was also delicious. I would highly recommend going here. Pricing was comparable to NYC. A bit on the higher side but the food was good."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Hands down the best restaurant in Kingston, NY, with an ambiance reminiscent of a really good bistro in a chic major metropolis. The menu is also typical, with steak frites, grilled wild salmon, Hudson Valley vegetables and the like, all the stuff that is predictable around here but also predictably top notch, in this case. They have a vodka-based cocktail called The Catskill that washes down like candy as well as an equally delicious Kingston Mint. They change their menu, of course, and my Brit boyfriend says: Bring back the Beef Wellington! Service and decor are spot on."

  • "We love this place, 3x visited in 3 weeks; love the staff, great cocktails and wine, super burgers with a pile of crisp fries, great ribs, and so on; we haven't had dessert yet because we're always so full and great lively atmosphere. our go to place for the best fried chicken also!"
