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 service was poor today. Our water was filled often which was good, but no one asked how our meals were. It took time to get our check etc. The positive thing was that we got to see Clinton.

The new menu was fabulous. A huge improvement. We went at 3:00 p.m. and had a wonderful experience as we were the only ones in the dining room and had great service and took over two hours to have a wonderful lunch/dinner experience.

Our dinner was very good overall. The novelty of reading the menu on our phones wore off quickly — too small to savor the full choice. And the wine list, all 176 pages of it, was absurd: how can one look through that on a phone and still have an enjoyable conversation while waiting for dinner? The soft shell crabs had sold out by 8.30 which was regrettable, so on the waiter’s advice we went for the lobster and shrimp to share between us (plenty for two). What to drink with lobster? The waiter wanted us to have a California chardonnay from the Napa Valley, but we were attracted by a Viognier — no further information, but at a good price — so we asked to see the sommelier who thought that viognier was a good choice and returned with a 2003 bottle for $175. That was not the price point I had in mind; the right bottle was hard to locate but enjoyable when it did come, after the hors d’œuvres. We liked the pizzetta, but found the ceviche more decoration than substance. The lobster was delicious. The shower curtain divisions were regrettable and rather spoiled the ambiance, as noted by others. Service was very good, attentive, friendly and courteous. All in all, a good dinner but not five stars.

Crabtree's Kittle House never disappoints! We went during HVRW and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Service was not up to par, but it was quite busy--probably the busiest since the pandemic first started. That can certainly be forgiven considering the quality of food and overall ambience.

Lovely setting in the garden for restaurant week. Ambiance great and food good but had a surly waiter! Three of us had the branzino but when my friend and I asked to not serve it with couscous he said he would serve double vegetables which was great. He brought the fish to one friend who had it with couscous with a delicious sauce. He left off the sauce for the two of us saying well your gluten free and it has some flour in it.... My friend is NOT gluten free and the worse part is when he asked for sauce he got annoyed and went storming off. He did bring the sauce which made the dish delicious. It could have been an honest mistake until he got annoyed he had to go back to get us sauce...He then recovered (realizing he may get a bad tip) and was fine for the rest of the meal. Our 4th had a burger with fries which was delicious! Food good, reasonable price and lovely ambiance. Would return hopefully we will get a different waiter.

We ordered from the Restaurant Week Menu which is not the full menu they have. Nonetheless, the food had a great taste and it was good, but they could give larger portions. I had to get a lobster roll after my meal as I was still hungry. Desserts were very simple, my wife asked for the brownie which she didn’t eat as it wasn’t that good. However, they wrote Happy Anniversary on our dessert’s plates which it was a nice touch. Overall, it was good but no Wow effect.

Everything was good but although they were not crowded it took about twenty minutes and three requests to get dessert. Coffee refill was offered but after about half an hour surprised these restaurant week lunch was exactly the same as dinner menu which I had enjoyed the previous week

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.

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!
