A word from Crabtree's Kittle House
Built in 1790 as a barn and named for local farmer John Kittle, the farm to table connection that began back then continues today at Crabtree's Kittle House. Internationally renowned for its Wine Spectator Grand Award wine list, superlative hospitality and contemporary American cuisine, it is a sophisticated country dining experience located only 45 minutes from Manhattan. Whether stopping in for a casual meal in the Tap Room or planning a formal intimate celebration from 2 to 200 guests, you'll find something for everyone and every occasion at Crabtree's Kittle House. The culinary team focuses on the local bounty of the Hudson Valley, from the casual Tap Room menu of salads, LaFrieda burgers & fresh cold shellfish to the more refined cuisine on the a la carte and Chef's Tasting menus, available in both the Tap Room & Dining Room. And nowhere is there a greater selection of fine wines (5000!) and other libations. Also a Bed & Breakfast, there are 13 rooms for overnight accommodations Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Kittle House used to be our go-to for birthdays and other special occasions. It used to have good food, an elegant atmosphere, and impeccable service - but no longer! From the time we were seated, we were ignored. We were not given menus for the longest time, then the manager took our drink order only to return and say they were out of that given wine. Once our substitute bottle of white arrived and was served WARM, we were left for over a half hour without a server coming to meet us or take our order. When we finally requested that a server from a neighboring table find our server, she graciously took our order. The food was subpar and cold -all of it. Once dessert rolled around, the manager reappeared. What a disappointing birthday."

  • "We celebrated my parents' fiftieth wedding anniversary with my two elementary school age girls at Crabtree's Kittle House. The food was excellent, and they had sufficient options to keep the adults and the two children happy. The waiters and other staff were very attentive and professional, and even dealt with a very difficult guest seated at a neighboring table to ours with sensitivity. The staff were also helpful with regard answering questions about my daughter's food allergy."

  • "The food never disappoints... delicious, beautifully plated and prepared. The setting is quietly elegant, however the service is not at the level you would expect at a restaurant of this caliber."

  • "Service was spotty - there was a wedding taking place and perhaps everyone was assigned to wedding and we got the "leftover" people. Only 1 of 4 liked their food and it was ok - fish came dry and overcooked. They were very good at taking 1 back and replacing it, but all was just ok. As a result, we are not planning to go back even though a beautiful setting."

  • "We were seated looking out over the scene where a wedding party was assembled. The bride stood by our table and chatted with those nearby. There were about twelve groomsmen. The wine, the food, the table setting and the ambiance were perfect for our 55th wedding anniversary. Mr Crabtree has to be very proud of his achievement."

  • "We've eaten here before and have been very pleased with the meal. This time, we ordered 2 entrees which had been reviewed in the recent NY Times review. (the Chicken and the Guinea Hen). The chicken was bland and tasteless although the truffle flavored whipped potatoes that came with it were wonderful. The guinea hen was overcooked and dry and tough and the sauce was overly seasoned, salty and dominated any flavor of the hen. The gnudi appetizer and the hamachi appetizer were both wonderful, as was the setting."

  • "Somewhat disappointed. Dinner at 6:00 w/ few tables filled, required 3 requests for olive oil when bread was served. Waiter stretched across patron to pour water when there was sufficient room to pass behind. Guinea hen & fish special of the evening, unremarkable. The best course was the Wednesday night oyster special."

  • "One of the best menu's I have seen in variety for a long time. We celebrated by daughters high school graudation. We traveled from Rockland County to Chappaqua on a Sunday; our original reservations were for 5:00 pm; we were stuck in traffic and they accommodated us without any question. Their neighboring High School also had graduation that same day, but our original table was not compromised. Food was excellent, extremely fresh and flavorful. One comment -- the ladies room needs some updating. Other than that i would dine at Crabtree in the future. Its not your everyday menu or meal; felt very special there."

  • "Sunday Brunch at Kittle House is always a special treat. The vast array of top -quality food will satisfy anyone's palate. Over the years, I've had special events in the private room, family and friends get together in the dining room and never been disappointed. In fact, I will be setting up a Sunday brunch for my daughter's birthday this fall. Keep the good food coming!"

  • "Service has deteriorated: it was slow, disconnected, amateurish. We had to call waiter to order drinks, entrees took an hour , my fish was ice cold and had to go back, then I had to ask for the fish and eat alone, it was forgotten. Even the coffee was wrong - I was served regular instead of decaf. So Disappointed."

  • "I met my son here for dinner so we could chat and catch up on life. It was perfect! The food, while always good, was especially so on our visit. The Monday night Lobster Special was truly a treat and prepared and served perfectly. The loin of lamb was memorable. Nothing beats consistency, friendly service and great food. Can't wait to visit again."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "I know it was Father's Day but it was very crowded with tables so close together you couldn't move. In addition the service was poor. The food was good but overall it was not worth the 45.00 price per person."

  • "We chose the Kittle House to celebrate our dear friend's 80th birthday knowing that the ambience, food, and service would be perfect! This was the final celebration, of many, for our friend....and it was the "exclamation point" to all of them! The service was attentive but not overbearing, we were not rushed and allowed to enjoy each other's company and the beautiful surroundings. Another memorable occasion at the Kittle House!"

  • "A friend suggested Crabtree 's Kittle House and described it as her favorite. I can see why. Food was delicious and service was marvelous. We were celebrating my son's graduation. It was a perfect spot. His dessert came with the word 'Congratulations'written in chocolate on the rim of the plate. They thought of everything! Perfect!"

  • "John Crabtree is the ultimate host at this charming restaurant nestled in a quiet neighborhood of Chappaqua. The food is consistently delicious, the wine cellar offers an amazing selection and the atmosphere is lovely. I have enjoyed brunch, lunch, dinners, formal affairs and the a late night bite to eat at bar and never been disappointed. Somehow, this venue covers a lot of ground without being huge and impersonal. Kudos"

  • "When we have a special occasion to celebrate and don't want to roam into NYC, we can count on Crabtree's Kittle House for a wonderful meal. We've gone for Mother's Day, birthdays, New Year's Eve, and most recently, our anniversary.the tasting meal was excellent. The chef swapped out two courses for me, no problem at all. Wine steward was extremely knowledgable and the wait staff was attentive without bring obsequious. We highly recommend CKH without hesitation!"

  • "A group of six of us (40 somethings) dined here on a Saturday night. We had heard that the food and wine were very good, but we were a bit worried that the scene was going to be dated and too quiet. We were seated in the bar area and found the ambiance to be perfect--nice piano, not too quiet or too loud and full of people. We had the tasting menu and the food was great. We also enjoyed the accompanying wines and at the end of the meal were treated to a tour of the wine cellar. Overall, it was a great night."

  • "We had the testing menu and the entire experience was overall poor, particularly given the price paid. Service was all around bad: water was never filled, bread never offered, dishes were rushed, and waiting staff described the dishes so quickly you could not understand what you were eating. The food had some good dishes, but when it was cooked well it was undone by lack of salt or in the scallops small pieces of shell within it. When this was mentioned to the maitre d' they seemed indifferent. We were disappointed given the price and reported reputation. "

We've been to Mother's Day brunch 3 years in a row and I'm booking again as soon as they'll take the reservation. We have 3 small children and the staff could not be friendlier to them. We've been for dinner as well and everything is always superb. "
