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.

Service and ambience were fantastic. Lively atmosphere while feeling intimate. Duck was a little dry though. Cute bar to have drinks before and after dinner.

In case you are wondering, they are taking covid precautions very seriously. Hand sanitizer as you walk in the door, and tables are socially distanced with a plastic barrier between them. I felt very safe but also thrilled to be in a restaurant again. Food was delicious, as usual, I would go again and again!

My friend and I decided to order several small plates & share them. Truffle Mac & cheese with short ribs, Caesar salad, pork belly, tuna tartare pissettas.

So darn delicious! Every single bite! No room for dessert but I would have ordered their Fab pecan tarte. Next time! 😋😋❤️

Yes, that is always the case here at the Kittle House on holidays, as we are typically very busy, and this helps us take care of our guests in a timely manner. If guests call us directly to reserve, they are always told that information. For guests such as yourself who booked through OpenTable, the details are there in our description of what we offer. I am sorry that you missed that information, and thank you for understanding.

On one of the most difficult nights of the year for restaurants to shine, Crabtree Kittlehouse did wonderfully. The food was excellent. There were some glitches in the service, but they did their best to make it up to us. We left very satisfied.

We were seated in a main dining area next to a family with a very loud, noisy young child. It was the first time we had been out in months and was the day before Valentine’s Day. A special occasion for us. My husband asked if we could be seated in a less noisy place and we were put into a stark room with no atmosphere whatsoever. We might as well have been dining in the garden shed. Our main meal took ages and frankly we couldn’t wait to leave! So disappointed with our experience and will not go back there.

Crabtree's Kittle House
Responded on February 25, 2021

We are sorry to hear you were disappointed. The front desk doesn't always know when a child is "loud", but of course we didn't mind moving you. You agreed to the quieter location we offered, or we would have tried another table. As for the delay, I would need to confer with the kitchen, but please realize you came on an extremely busy holiday weekend. Did you mention it to your server or a manager at the time? Unfortunately there is nothing we can do now, except thank you for your feedback

The Kittle House is our "go to" restaurant for a wonderful dinner out always. During Covid, as soon as we could we went back (outdoor seating). Everything was just as wonderful as always. Then the surge hit over the holidays and the cold came...didn't stop us and our son knew...he gave us a gift card. When we used it we were just as happy as always, each table was not only spaced apart but there were either wooden screens or plastic between tables. John Crabtree was there as always, caring and stopping by his patrons.

Hi Lily. Unfortunately I don't see a reservation under your name so I can't check with the server or the kitchen about your meal. Were you able to mention to our staff what you were unhappy about, so we could try to remedy the situation? It is never our intention for our guests to be disappointed, with anything! I do hope you'll give us another try, and please let me know when making your reservation.

Beautiful place. Unfortunately the staff doesn't care. The hostess was VERY snippy. They wanted to seat us in the "dungeon" downstairs which was cold, and had virtually no ambience for Christmas Eve. We did get re-seated upstairs, but the wait staff there paid no mind to the customers. Food was delicious, but expect inferior service.

We wish you a happy and healthy holiday season!
