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 Steak Frites to Fried Chicken. as well as dishes for vegans and guests with special dietary needs. 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.

We liked the ambiance and cozy feel. The food was really good and the cocktails were fun. Short ribs and crab cakes were slammin’! Can’t wait to go back!

Had dinner here before a show at UPAC. We let the hostess know and she made sure our timetable was accommodated. Hubby was pleased with the raw oyster selection. He and our friend enjoyed the veggie burger; I had pasta with sausage-also very good. Reservations are recommended, especially if the weather's not conducive to sitting on the large outdoor patio (even with heaters it was too cold). Leave time to explore historic Uptown Kingston before or after your meal.

A gem of a place. Though tinier on the inside it never felt crowded. Food was good although one Of the menu items wasn’t to our liking. The staff was a pleasure and never rushed us.

Second time going to Boitson's. It was very good again. Drinks are different and worth the price. We both enjoyed our meal. Will definitely go back.

Very underwhelming food for the price. The cauliflower wings were a great appetizer but unfortunately, the entrees were disappointing. Way too expensive for Kingston, NY.

We had a really lovely time at Boutsin's. Delicious cocktails and wine, a fantastic hostess named arose who took excellent care of us, and cozy, romantic seating in a place with good food and a great vibe. My steak was overcooked, but still tasty. We'll definitely return.

Oysters served correctly eve though a little pricey will return for oysters. Devils on Horseback appetizer is superb. They mix a nice drink but also a little pricey. It's a tiny place so the tables are close and the noise level is kind of high.

Will definitely return to try more dishes, for oysters, and other apps.

Hands down my favorite restaurant in the area. I have never been disappointed, the food is always eyes-roll back in your head delicious. The staff are incredibly friendly and efficient but not pushy in the least and extremely knowledgeable about the food and drinks, able to make great recommendations. You can also go for lower cost meal with some of their 'standards' or by just doing cocktails and small plates, or you can go big or go home with appetizers, drinks and one of their daily specials- which are always changing with the season and availability of sustainable food. Plus- raw bar. You can't go wrong with the raw bar! They truly are a gem.

Love Boitson's. It's part of Kingston's up and coming Stockade District. A pre-drink down the street at Stockade Tavern is always fun. With new shops and hotels opening around the corner in the coming months its exciting to know that Boitson's booming will only boom even louder.
Great food. Great mood. enjoy.

We wanted inexpensive good comfort food and we got it. Service was terrific; the noise level was reasonable for a pair of elders; the burger and fries were tasty and generous (overly, on the fries - hard to resist taking virtually an entire extra order home after eating a full plate).

And I highly recommend the generous and tasty wine flight - for $10 you choose your own and they were all decent (and I can be picky!)

We will definitely return.

We had dinner reservation for 9 pm. From the menu 75% of the food wasn't available, especially the popular items which we were looking forward to have. We ordered the scallops and steak. The Scallops were tiny, fried only on one side, completely cold and laid on a bed of salad. When I asked the server about the cold scallops, she literally made excuses and wasn't ready to take it back. She even suggested to re-heat the already overcooked scallops(blasphemous). Her ignorance became apparent. I educated her stating I knew what & how a scallop is supposed to be cooked and what texture is expected. Later, she returned the dull dish and probably the head Chef made it again. Second time around the scallops were medium size, warmer but I did think there were small sand grains. Not the most pleasant experience.

I had family in for the holiday weekend and there were 2 birthdays we were celebrating. My husband and I are vegan and chose Boitson's because they offered 3 vegan options that I saw on their online menu. We have trouble finding restaurants that accommodate so this looked promising. The news on our arrival was they didn't have the veggie burger and they took the seitan meatloaf off the menu. We ordered the salad which had the absolute worst salad dressing I've ever had - and then discovered they put bacon in it, ignoring our vegan request. Beyond any of this was experiencing THE WORST attitude from the waitress and management even mentioning it. EXTREMELY BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE. They were acting like they were put out. Needless to say, we left before the meal arrived. AVOID THIS RESTAURANT...been talking to others now how have had bad service here and attitude. Too many other good places to eat in Kingston...go there.

We came up to explore local scene from the city. Read about this restaurant on a blog and had roots in Brooklyn my hometown! Adorable place great back patio everyone very friendly. Food was locally sourced and very tasty although very very slow in coming. Despite that would highly recommend! If we happen to be in the area again would definitely go back!
