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.

In the past, we’ve found the kitchen was very slow. But this time, they did a very good job. Our party of 8 had 3 courses and was finished in under 2 hours.

This was our first time dining at Crabtree Kittle House, and WOW, what an amazing time we had! It was our 1 year anniversary. The staff made sure our night was beyond special and the food and drinks were exquisite. Great experience, highly recommend the Filthy Martini, Ceviche, Polenta Fries, Shrimp + Crab linguini, the Salmon, and the Chocolate Gift dessert!! 10/10!!

Food was ok, wine list was difficult to wade through, they were out of a bunch of selections and only offered a digital list. Entrees were disappointing. I think they need to streamline this menu more so they can focus on improving the food.

It was a pleasant experience, food was certainly very tasty and the service was great up to the moment we received our meals and then it stopped.
Despite many wait staff constantly walking past us, no one checked in on us, no one offered us further drinks and it took a good 10/15mins for our plates to be cleared and it only happened because I caught someone’s eye.
So it was a shame we left a little disappointed that it could have been so much better if the service had been more attentive.

Have been to Crabtree many times pre covid and it was always great! This time went for brunch and it was not. Had lobster Benedict before and it was delicious but this time, the lobster meat was all claws and the hollandaise sauce was horrible. Not worth $50 at all! So disappointing! Not sure if there is a new chef.

Back again to a favorite, festive place for a special occasion. The beet salad, organic salmon and cut-with-a-fork short ribs were all a hit -- topped off by the yummy Crème Brûlée. Great service too.

Food is excellent as ever. Sadly the service did not match up - server got our wine order wrong and brought extra desserts we did not order but then when we mentioned he said they were for table but ended up on our bill anyway. Feels like they prioritize regulars vs those of who go less frequently. Also too many tables so we were bashed by servers squeezing through multiple times.

My son and I were at the restaurant for Thanksgiving. They provided great service even when the restaurant was full and the all places are so short of staff. Service folks did not miss a beat and we all know they were working for 10-12 hrs. And the food was superb , the red snapper, pecan pie , dips and wine were all done with high quality organic ingredients and freshly prepared.

We had wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. The wait staff was overwhelmed due to the large crown on this holiday. On a normal day I think the staff would be adequate.

A very special restaurant. Beautiful setting with warm dining rooms. Service could not have been more attentive, from maitre'd to bartender to server and the staff who kept the table cleared (all with no hovering). Food - extraordinary and comforting. We were a party of 6 celebrating my mother's 89th birthday. I hope to dine at Crabtrees many more times.
