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.

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.

Old style restaurant, like eating when you are away on vacation. The service was outstanding! We had attentive, yet respectful wait staff and felt we always had everything we needed. The experience made us feel “normal “ for a couple of hours. I highly recommend the Kittle House to begin the trip back to normalcy. Wonderful!

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!

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

High quality food. Service was off this time including a last minute up sell on a horrible grappa. Clue when it goes untouched at the end of a 500+ dollar meal for 2 is to ask why. Left a bad taste (in more than one way)in my mouth

Crabtree's Kittle House
Responded on March 29, 2021

Hi Nicole. I'm sorry to hear that your service was off. I do hope you mentioned something to management about the grappa so that we could check the bottle? In any case, we hope you'll join us again, so that we can ensure the best service for your table - what the Kittle House is known for. Stay well!

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.

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.
