Sunday, June 17, 2018
Crabtree's Kittle House has been our go-to spot for family celebrations for years, but our recent visit has us rethinking that.
- Service was disorganized at best. Three servers asked for our drink order only to disappear. And the one who did deliver them spilled them and just walked away leaving the mess. We had to ask several times for cream to go with the coffee. And they neglected to clear away the dishes in between trips to the buffet.
- Food quality has gone seriously downhill. "Pastry" consists of bagels and muffins that are chopped in to smaller pieces. NOT ONE GLUTEN-FREE ITEM WAS AVAILABLE! The cuts of meat are of inferior quality; I have never before been served a slice of beef that was at least 50% connective tissue, gristle, and fat. It was borderline inedible. Dessert selections now run more toward the sorbet variety.
- The kicker comes at the end when the bill arrives and you see they've added a 20% fee to the after-tax amount (party of 4). Adding twenty-percent for lousy service and poor-quality food is unacceptable. (No wonder the servers could not care less!)
Thanks, Kittle House. You were good while it lasted...time to move on.
A great local upscale restaurant. Food is generally excellent and service is very professional. Noted for their wine selections if that is your bag.
Great food and service. Never fails to disappoint.
The drinks and wine were delicious. The waiter gave us a great recommendation. The beets and buratta appetizer was delicious, as was the lobster bisque. Our main courses, the salmon and hangar steak were good too. Service was very slow.
It was an awful experience. The service was terrible. The waitress rang up our bill incorrectly three times. We had to ask for the appetizer. The pear martinis that were brought to the table tasted awful and sent back. The food was brought out cold. Very disappointed. We had been there last year for Mothers’s day and it was very good. This year it was awful. No value for the money. I would not recommend it.
Could not handle the Mothers Day crowd. Everything was below their standard.
We loved the intimacy along with conviviality of dining in a house-like environment (quiet residential area) along with many other couples, friends, and families. We thought the menu provided many options for pricey or for fiscal containment. Overall it was a good value. We also appreciated that they were generous with the wine—the glasses were big and not skimpily filled like in other restaurants we’ve been to.
The food was extremely bland
We had an excellent meal. Service was excellent. They let you linger which is nice for us. Pretty room. Lovely views. Expensive. Big menu. A little noisy from catered event above but not obtrusive. It’s especially nice to be on a building from the 1700 s they have tried to maintain the historic look. I recommend it for its ambiance. It’s a relaxing night out. They do accommodate children. So bring them too.
Wonderful spot for a special occasion, but often, at places where big events take place, food is not a top priority. Unfortunately, that's the case at Crabtree. Nice atmosphere though. Also, service is on the slow side.
Always on top of their game. Beautiful presentation of roasted sliced beets with freshly made burrata. Then a Cinco de Mayo dinner of shrimp and salmon tacos with a tasty slaw. Finished with Kittle Krack pie! Freshly made margaritas to wash it all down!👍🏻👊🏻😁
We have been to the Crabtree Kittlehouse many times, and each time we have been disappointed by either the food or the service. This time the service was good, but the food was not what it should be for a restaurant of this calibre. The restaurant could be a gem, but there is always something missing here: menu choice, service , food. I think that management could use some outside help to make this a much better restaurant.
Food is dreadful, inedible, and over priced. For example, I ordered a side of fries (I love fries) and I couldn't eat them. Zero taste.
But the setting and the restaurant are beautiful. Good for a drink outdoors on the patio.
If you love wine, this is a great place. But save your money and only order wine and hors d'oeuvre. The wait staff is very good too.
Food and service were their usual high standard. You can always count on both here.
We always have a wonderful time at the Kittle House. The food is dependably good and the service is excellent. It is the perfect place for a long relaxing dinner with friends.
The food was excellent, as always and we love the staff who are always welcoming and attentive. We continue to return because this place is truly wonderful.
Took my mother in law out for her birthday. The duck and salmon were over cooked as was my sons burger. But at least the kids meals were free on sundays.
Another terrific meal! Outstanding service! AN absolute gem!
Wonderful service. Food was prepared perfectly. Wine was great. Also enjoyed the piano in the tavern after dinner.
A special place that feels like a vacation spot. Food is delicious and lovely from carefully-sourced local farms. I was surprised by the large number of gluten-free possibilities. We went for my husband's birthday and he said it felt like a real celebration being there. The staff is fun and polite, and the birthday song singing was great, too.
On a rainy Monday we were the only people in the dining room at lunchtime, but we were made to feel very comfortable and we enjoyed our meal.
Crabtree's Kittle House tiene el mejor brunch de Westchester
Had an awesome time. This was a featured wine tasting dinner with a preplanned dinner. One course i could not eat due to a food allergy and gave mine to my sister. The staff noticed and in minutes brought out a different dish for me.
top ten restaurant in Westchester County year after year. Always good. Delicious food and 5 star service.
We enjoyed excellent food and service as always. The lobster with pasta appetizer was excellent and the soft shell crabs were over the top.
7 people- all of us raved about our appetizers and main course. Staff and service were excellent.
Easter price fix dinner menu was superb! I had red snapper, my spouse the fillet mignon. Both were delicious & perfect! The deserts are dangerous--so good!! Beautiful dining room. Steeped in history, elegant. Love this neighborhood gem!!
We had Easter dinner, which was delicious, however it was spoiled by very poor service. First we receive Hors d’oeuvres late with our Appetizer, only after asking for them. Then we had to ask for bread which came midway through the entrée. The bread arrived with plates but no butter knives but at that point we were too annoyed to ask for them. There is a manitory 20% tip but the service we received was not worth it.
The Kittle House is an old favorite that doesn't disappoint. Nice ambience, interesting and varied menu, and good service.
Overall we had a wonderful time with our family for our daughters birthday.
The service was good but not stellar like the food and ambiance. I think there were not enough wait staff for the number of guests dining. This is our fourth visit and we do love it overall.
Excellent Sunday brunch. Great selection of food including quiche, waffles, bagels and lox, various salads, carving station, shrimp, clams and mussels, pastas.
Start with mimosa or Bloody Mary.
Family friendly and low noise level.
This is one of favorite restaurants and we usually go 3 - 4 times a year. Excellent food and great, expansive wine list. We have had nothing but great experiences at Kittlehouse...until last Saturday evening.
Food was inconsistent and disappointing. My wife's meal was over cooked and not very well seasoned. My guest's wife's meal was not well seasoned and was very bland. We asked that the two meals be replaced with the Cod special, which was excellent. Also, we ordered a spanish Rioja which we could not fully appreciate. The wine was served below room temperature (too cold) which totally dulled the taste and fragrance; this despite the fact that we had the wine decanted and waited for 20 minutes before we drank it.
As always, the wait staff was extremely attentive, helpful and accommodating.
We will go back again as we believe that this was "just one of those days" . Nevertheless, we were greatly disappointed this time around because it dulled what was to be a special evening with our friends.
This was a first-time visit and I'll definitely be back. The food, presentation, service and ambience were excellent. The only down note was that I requested a birthday candle in my companion 's dessert and it came out with nothing. Even if they didn't have a candle, just acknowledging it would have been nice. Other than that, great restaurant and dining experience.
We had a lovely time. Everything about the evening was great.
Great service! , love this place
Always the best! Our go to spot.
Fantastic experience. Would definitely go again.
Great food, good service. Always a good place to go for a nice evening
Food was good. Service was slow. Three or four different wait staff.
Kittle House always one of my favorite places. Elegant classic. Hudson Valley restaurant week delicious menu. First class as always at KH
