A word from Stissing House
Michel and Patricia Jean, owners of Stissing House, bring decades of noted culinary experience, including Provence in New York City, to their restaurant in the Hudson River Valley. The Jeans came to Dutchess County, NY where they discovered The Stissing House, an historic 1782 tavern, after an almost 20-year run at their New York City restaurant Provence. One of America’s oldest and longest-operating restaurants, The Stissing House features a wood-burning oven and grill sizzling with Michel’s Provençal-inspired cuisine. With a more sophisticated décor but period details intact, The Stissing House has become a landmark culinary destination. The food: simple, delicious, robust and compelling Provençal cuisine. In every meal: seasonal, locally-sourced, organic grass-fed beef, poultry and vegetables. The vintage tavern room features a special cocktail menu drawing locals and visitors alike to eat, drink and socialize at the bar or the tables. Available for private parties as well.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent food, especially in this neck of the woods. Greeted at the door so warmly and all the staff were friendly. Excellent service. The building is a large old inn and absolutely gorgeous inside with a relaxed rustic feel. The owner really understands client service in detail. This restaurant really delivers on all fronts. Can't wait to take my friends and family there!"

  • "Unfortunately, the food would have been much better but everything lacked seasoning. Escargots looked great but there was way too much parsley, very little garlic and almost no butter! I'm very fussy about the temperature of dishes, and my food came to the table warm but not hot. For the money, there are better restaurants in the area."

  • "My wife myself and a visiting niece tried The Stissing House during restaurant week and were very pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was wonderful, the menu was fantastic and the staff we VERY helpful, friendly and efficient. The portion sizes were ample ( I don't recall ever having a dozen escargot in an appetizer serving before). The hangar steak was perfectly done and very tender. The mussels were delicious and the cod special was excellent too. I would recommend The Stissing House to anyone who appreciates fine dining."

  • "Driven by the Stissing House a few times and was really curious about the old inn. Just a beautiful old inn. Service staff was nice and accommodating. The food was really great. My wife and I shared a Kale & Butternut Squash Salad that was really great. We also shared the mussels appetizer which was wonderful and was a meal in itself. For an entree I had the hanger steak, cooked perfectly. I look forward to my next visit there..."

  • "Very charming atmosphere. Only mediocre food and it was very cold and drafty. The service was very good."

  • "First offered up a horrible seat in the bar, but then one by the fireplace (why didn't they do that first?). Hanger steak was good but casolett (sp) was dry and fatty (beans and pork and sausage). Meat was very sparse in it and it was mushy. Would not order that again even though it was on special. Drinks were extremely expensive. The table next to us was pretty loud. The 2 dollar share charge on a salad when you each get an expensive dinner and drinks was nuts. Also, they gave us the wrong bill (over charged by 70 dollars)."

  • "It was the Saturday before Christmas and this place was full of large tables with families getting ready for Christmas. Even with that, our waitress made sure that we were not left out and made every attempt to ensure that we got very good service. It has been my experience that the food is consistently good here - my steak was a little overcooked, but other than that, everything else was excellent."

  • "Stissing House, in an old inn on the crossroads of the small town of Pine Plains in Dutchess County, is worth a visit. Whether you want French classics or original pizza or "current market" veggies, there's something good here for you. The main room, with bar and open pizza oven, is warm & friendly and casual. Dining rooms are also available that are more formal. It's pretty much the only game in town in Pine Plains, but its owners, formerly of the restaurant Provence in NYC, make it a worthy choice."
