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.

Prices are a bit high so it isn't a place I would go to often but I do plan on going back. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. Enjoyed the food fully. It didn't look like a lot of food on the plate but in the end it was just the right amount. And it was the perfect evening for sitting outside.

Awesome restaurant! Great meal from the appetizer to the deserts. Our only regret was not dining there sooner!! Definitely worth the trip (45 minutes away) and looking forward to going back. In a time where pretentious restaurants seem to rule - Boitson’s is the real deal!

Ate here twice the last two Sundays - got filet still not cooked to order. Mentioned it to the waiter dont worry we can always cook it some more. I really think the chef should make sure the filets are cooked correct before they leave the kitchen - I am not a fan of sending my food back.At the price tag $36 I expect more!

I had a early dinner there on Saturday night with 3 friends. We were seated in the lovely outdoor space in the rear that has a mountain view. The menu offered many options, but is strong on vegan and vegetarian options. I ordered a wonderful arugula salad and the vegan meatballs. Everything was delicious. My friends, however, were not happy with their burgers-- neither the vegetarian "protein" burger nor the real beef burgers were very well liked. So, it was a mixed experience. I guess it pays to order well. Here were lots of drink offerings and a lively outdoor bar. The service was lovely and very responsive to our wishes, since we were needing to leave by a certain time to get to a show.

We regularly go to Boitson's. It's good.
Good food, good drinks, good service, and a nice ambiance. They even play good music in the background. This dinner was no exception. They have great cauliflower "wings" and serve a tasty salad with mozzarella, bacon, and arugula. We tried a veggie burger that is meant to closely imitate a beef burger - great. The special fish was not so great -- however, the waiter was quick to notice us pushing it around the plate and offered to fire something else up. Oh, and you can't go wrong w/ fried chicken.

Another amazing meal! As two vegetarians there just aren't that many great dinner options for us around here, but Boitson's often delivers. The addition of Impossible burger products to the menu is so exciting, I can't even describe it. I will dream about that burger for months. We also had the buffalo cauliflower app, which is literally my favorite dish in Ulster County, and the eggplant meatballs, which were very good but would be better over pasta, and a side of mac and cheese, which is also consistently delicious, if a tiny bit dry. And I can't leave without having the espresso pot de creme, which is so rich and perfect to share. I love this place and if I had more money I'd go every week.

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.

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.
