Contemporary American
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, 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 14 rooms for overnight accommodations.

We took my Mom out for a belated Mother's Day dinner-she is 91- and my two daughters and husband. All of us enjoyed the dinner, table setting and spacing at the table we sat. The appetizers were all delicious-beets, salad and soup and we all had the chicken entre.
Most especially the bread pudding for dessert was out of this world. Our friend's daughter was there earlier for a shower and she had a very nice time as well. We enjoy going to the Kittle House as it always has been a great place to visit. One complaint was the men's bathroom- lack of use for one stall which my husband thought should had been fixed for the weekend guests.

A bit put off by waiters arguing over which table belonged to whom. The food was pretty good although my ribeye was over cooked past medium. Wanted to give 5 stars but couldn’t

This restaurant was an excellent surprise for us. We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere (we dined outside in the restaurants garden patio) and the chef is talented. The bread pudding is dreamy. We were there for the Hudson Valley Restaurant week lunch menu.

Food was pretty good. Presentation was poor. We sat outside, when I arrived the table had not been set at all. I asked for the heat lamp to be turned on. There was no propane in the tank. They had to fix the tank directly in front of us while we were dining. When they brought out the bread they did not bring out small plates for each of us. Crumbs everywhere until we asked. Never came over to ask how we’re doing, if we needed anything. Overall quite disappointing. For the $$$’s we spent, not a good choice.

Love this restaurant and the food! Kittle House never disappoints. The service is always “spot on”. The menu is always creative and the food is prepared/plated uniquely. The Lobster Bisque is delicious and a family fav. Pastas are as fresh as can be. Desserts are really yummy so make sure to save room!

The prix fixe menu was limited in that there were fish and meat choices but no chicken. My daughter doesn't really enjoy fish and doesn't eat red meat. It was odd that it was not on the menu. Also, service was quite slow. I understand it was Mother's Day and that the restaurant is ramping staffing up post-Covid restrictions easing. However, for $85/head, it would have been nice to get our dessert in a timely fashion as well as have our coffee come with the dessert. We ended up cancelling the coffee orders.

Did not feel covid-safe. It was so busy (granted it was Mother’s Day), but the entrance/waiting area was crowded, they were not enforcing social distancing. We were backed into a corner and then had to wait outside (rainy) to get away from the crowd. Food was not good - lobster bisque was not hot (a tea spoon was provided even though the server called it a soup spoon), the would not give extra bread for my son, my salmon dish was supposed to have yuzu flavors in the bed of rice but it didn’t or was so light I couldn’t taste it. Took dessert home because we just wanted to leave sooner rather than later.

Went for Mother’s Day. Everything was so sloppy and careless. Almost all silverware was dirty, glasses had stains and some were wet. Everything was plated poorly. It was embarrassing for this special day.

The Caesar salad was unexceptional. We order led dessert and 30 minutes later we cancelled it. They were apologetic and gave us a compensatory discount on the wine we had. But the entrees were great.

It's nice to know that there is a place like the Kittle House, especially during the pandemic. The dining room tables were generously spaced apart and privacy was additionally provided with Lucite panels between tables. Both the service and the food was impeccable. We couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable meal.

The restaurant is lovely, especially the rustic bar and the outdoor patio. Sadly, With the exception of the mussels and french fries, and the bread to start, the food was across-the-board poor. I’ll give it another try in the fall or winter but my husband will not return.

The restaurant was very cold. I wore my down coat during the entire meal. We did ask for a window to be closed but they kept the front door open. We were in the back room which is nothing special.
There was an unusual spice in the sauce for the duck, neither my son nor I cared for. The shaved Brussel sprouts and couscous mix was not at all pleasant.
The service was attentive but I was surprised that they no longer clear breadcrumbs even after a charcuterie board.
I have been to Kittle.House a few times and really enjoyed it, unfortunately not this time.

I took my friend to Crabtree Kittle House for a celebration lunch. I've eaten there before and loved the view so much and wanted to share that. Unfortunately we weren't asked or told we would be placed in the bar, which we were previously told was closed. Assume a heavily booked Easter meant this happened. Our table was up against a wall in a dark space, no view, no window and not enjoyable. We could have been in absolutely any bar anywhere. The food and service were good but I'd recommend asking every time if your table is in the dining room. This was a wasted trip for us. Generally I'd say the Inn and food and view are wonderful but not this time.
