    Food was very tasty and dessert was great too. Small mix-up with the order of when certain dishes were served, so one person didn’t have their appetizer when the rest of us did, but not a deal breaker. Everyone I dined with also enjoyed their meal and overall experience. I would definitely go back. Thank you!

    My wife and I went Hudson Valley restaurant week and the menu had very nice options though the offerings were smaller than a regular menu order. Nevertheless, a decent bang for the buck and their seasoning and presentation of food is excellent as usual. The interior is dated and there probably should be some renovation to spruce the aesthetics up a bit.

    We went there for lunch during Restaurant Week, and everything we ate was delicious! We accidentally ordered from the dinner menu instead of the lunch menu, but our waiter was able to get permission for some substitutions, which was above and beyond what we could have expected. He checked in with us frequently and really cared about us enjoying our meals, so excellent service as well as excellent food!

    Have eaten at Crabtree several times. This time we went Hudson valley restaurant week and we were not disappointed. Menu had many choices including lobster bisque as an appetizer and short ribs as an entree. They also elevated the dessert choices with the Kittle crunch and apple crumble as two of the options. Service was excellent as always. Only issue was parking. They were having an event & valet parking was only for event guests. We had to park all the way on the right side at the entrance by the post.

    Crabtree's Kittle HouseResponded on November 15, 2022Such a rude comment! No wonder you wanted to remain anonymous. FYI, with the number of guests we encounter each day, it is an extra measure of precaution that many of our guests actually appreciate. When you have your own restaurant, you'll be able to make your own rules; until then, please respect what we are doing.

    I tend not to be a “5 across the board “ reviewer. This was extremely good and I certainly recommend it. Could have used a little more seasoning (not typically an issue for me) but good portion size and very satisfying.

    I was pretty excited to go back to the Kittle House after almost 10-years - I remember the overall experience being 5-star. That said, while the food we ordered was good, and the wine list still outstanding, I must say that we were all pretty underwhelmed by the service. Across the board, the servers (including the sommelier) were not helpful (thankfully we knew the direction we wanted to order regardless). When asked what are the favorites on the menu, the waiter literally replied “the meat and fish are good”. FYI there were numerous meat and fish options on the menu - smh. That’s sort of how the night went regarding the service. It kind of felt like we were being served by the busboys. Overall we still give it a 4 out of 5, but this is definitely a downgrade from what I remember. The Kittle House is going to have to step it up to get back to where it was.

    The Kittle House has evolved with the years. The menu is comtemporary and varied; food is very good; the ambience is intimate and relaxing and it is one of the few restaurants today where you hear yourself and your dinner companions. Service is also attentive without being overbearing. A lovely evening out.

    We went to Sunday brunch to celebrate our anniversary and sat outside on a cool autumn day. It was like being in our own private English garden because no one else sat out there. The staff set up a heater for us, so we were comfortable. The 3course prefix menu was very extensive. It is only worth $45 per person if you order included cocktails. Everyone enjoyed the food, except the person who ordered the pancakes, which looked kind of sad and were not very tasty according to the person ordering it, The waiter was very pleasant and gave good advice - get the apple crisp for dessert if they have it!

    Enjoyed the food very much. Appetizers tried: Smoked salmon; butternut squash bisque. Entrees: branzino; striped bass (replacement for tilefish). Portions adequate but not large. Dessert: Valhrona Chocolate "gift"- rich dark chocolate wrapped in puff pastry & baked so that chocolate oozes when you out into it. They have a great wine selection; I had a glass of a very nice Malbec. This was a Saturday night, & the service was not up to their usual standards. Waiter never asked if we wanted a beverage, so I had to tell him what I wanted; then, he forgot to bring it to me until halfway through my entree when I had to flag him down to remind him, because he never checked during our meal to see if we needed anything else after bringing our entrees. Noise level was high enough that conversation was possible, but less than easy. Tab for 2 people, with 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, 1 glass of wine & 1 dessert was $170 including tax & tip. Valet parking was not available & their lot can barely hold everyone on such a busy night. This place is one I think of primarily for special occasions rather than routine dining out.

    Everything at the Kittle House is always wonderful. Excellent service: friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Every course was delicious, but I could probably eat the sweet potato gnocchi for every meal for the rest of my life and die happy. We were married here 25 years ago and our anniversary dinner was as wonderful as our wedding day experience. Thank you to John Crabtree and the entire staff for decades of joy.

    My husband and I went for our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed it! The apps, entrees, dessert, drinks…everything was delicious! We would highly recommend it! The only part we didn’t like was when the wait staff started closing tables and chairs around us at the end of the night. Otherwise, it was a pleasant experience.
