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.

Everything was as I expected it to be, Perfect.
The parking was the only detraction to the experience, perhaps a valet would be appropriate.

Overall the food lacked taste - not seasoned well. We ordered two steaks, both were very undercooked; french fries were served cold and without salt. Lobster bisque was bland and barely warm. Will not be returning - very disappointing and quite expensive. The quality of the food was good but the execution (seasoning and actual cooking were poor).

The ambiance was great, and it was easy to hear your dining companion. The service was attentive. Food was excellent (roasted chicken, short ribs). Very glad we made reservations!

The full house led to spotty service, although the servers were otherwise very caring.

The food was good but not great. The duck which was ordered to be cooked at medium temperature was served rare.

The acoustics in the dining room are not ideal. Unfortunately we were seated near a loud table of four who used profanity throughout their conversation.

We ate outside in the upper garden -- it's very romantic, strung with beautiful lights and they had heaters (it's been colder at night). The food was delicious and we had excellent service. Highly recommend Kittle House.

The food was atrocious! Dishes were served cold by uncaring servers who lost count of seated guest positions. Les modules were tasteless and cold. The duck lacked taste, spice and was tough as nails. I could go on but I’m afraid no one will read this. You have lost four customers

Menu is a bit pricey based on portions received. The seating in the pub area was uncomfortable. The chairs were wobbly and felt unsafe for an elderly person.

We couldn’t figure out where they must’ve bought the bagel because it was like the prepackaged type you buy in the gross restore I’m not at the nearby bagel shop. The steak and eggs was not up to par the steak was overdrawn and it looked as though it had been reheated. English muffin in the Benedict was almost impossible to cut so I didn’t. We were very disappointed

We have been to the Kittle House numerous times for dinner and for events. The overall experience had always been above average. This last time we went to Sunday Brunch to celebrate my wife’s birthday. It was not crowded and there were ample staff, but there seemed to be a lack of coordination and purpose in how they worked together. There were lengthy pauses between courses. The menu consisted of items that could be prepared quickly, yet we waited. My eggs Benedict was very good, but my wife’s salmon was very dry, leading me to believe it had been prepared ahead of time and reheated. There was a lack of urgency and energy among the staff. Some were pleasant and upbeat while others seemed as though they got stuck with their shift. We had clearly finished our entrees, knife and fork resting in the plate. We waited. I have worked as a wait staff and it seemed to me that the brunch needed a person in charge to expedite the service and assure the quality of the product being presented to the customer.

Service was OK, but bread was stale (with an unappealing cube of store-bought butter). The entrée was passable (fish), but definitely not worth the price. Beet appetizer had hardly any goat cheese and beets needed salt. They were bland and bitter. Outdoor seating was muddy and noisy. Garden chairs were metal and uncomfortable. Seat cushions would help. Totally overrated restaurant and expensive. Big disappointment, especially since it has an established reputation as being one of the premier restaurants in Westchester.

The outdoor area was very quiet and pleasant. Service was fair. I had to request butter 3 times before it arrived, although the server did bring an additional half bagel. The food was only fair. The branzino was cooked correctly but bland, no seasonings. The barbecue ribs were dry. It was a nice afternoon but for the price I can get a better meal elsewhere.

It was fun. But food not quite if caliber it should be. Husband’s pork chop very good(and he’s particular) and kids liked pasta Bolognese. Modules frites, steak sandwich and branzino all left something to b desired.
Atmosphere is great and whole family really enjoyed having bride walk right next to us out to her wedding!

The outside dining area was lovely. We felt like we were dining in a private back yard. The service was very attentive, but leisurely. It was the perfect amount of time between courses. The salads were delicious, especially the deconstructed Falafel salad. Main courses were delicious (duck, Bronzino, steak). Desserts yummy too. A wonderful setting for a special occasion or any night.

Food was amazing, per usual. Waiter was a little rude…. Didn’t know what vegetables accompanied the chicken, and rather than offering to find out just said “don’t know” and left it at that. We were celebrating my husbands birthday with his parents but were put off so didn’t order a dessert…. Still, I’m surprised a “little something” wasn’t brought out to wish him a happy birthday.
