An old storefront in Kingston's Historic Uptown District, a simple sliver of a space, has received a sumptuous update by its new tenant: Boitson's Restaurant. The menu is American, refined, yet comfortable from Steak Frites to Fried Chicken. as well as dishes for vegans and guests with special dietary needs. The dining area is a carefully considered homage to both the upscale bistro and the "old man" bar. In good weather, the back deck, with views of the Catskills, is another of Boitson's many secrets awaiting to be discovered.

Perfect outdoor patio for a nice meal. We took our parents and there was something for everyone on the menu and it was nice to have some greenery for the view.

As usual, we sat outside. The weather was perfect. I was leary about trying the Impossible Burger, but our waitress told me that "everyone" who has eaten it, loved it. I took her recommendation and it really was just like a meat burger. Excellent. The rest of our party also enjoyed their meals. The lamb sliders, I was told (I didn't share) was excellent if a bit pricey. All in all -- we will be back!

Everything is always great at Boitson's but this night the service was what was so amazing as somehow I lost my phone and multiple people who worked there helped me find it. Thank you again!!! I will always go back, you can't go wrong.

Ate out side on their deck. Felt like you were in a garden. Menu is small but interesting. Had an impossible burger. Delicious. Cannot believe you are not eating meat.

The environment was wonderful! The actual menu is a bit limited but I ordered the linguini bolognese from the specials and it was out of this world! The cauliflower wings weren’t that great, they tasted more burnt and they were really soft with no texture they definitely need more hot sauce. It’s like a hint of hot peppers on it.. overall it was yummy! If onnnnly the prices weren’t so expensive I would go more often :)

The restaurant has a varied menu. There is something there for everyone. Everything we had was delicious. Loved their hamburgers, oysters, fried chicken, red snapper and mussels. We sat on the outside deck on a beautiful night.

Definitely our favorite dinner spot in Kingston! We loved the vegan meatballs, watermelon gazpacho, impossible burger, and mac&cheese. The wait staff is friendly, attentive, and very professional. The seasonal back porch/lounge is a dream.

Boitson's has become a Kingston standard. The atmosphere is casual but chic and the food is consistently above average. The staff is friendly and professional.

Food was good, service left something to be desired.
Asked the waitress what she recommended between two choices, opted for the one she talked up, received the other. Still enjoyed the meal.
Appetizer came out with entrees. No check up until flagged down.
Would still go back, chalking it up as an off- night.

Overall attitude of staff was not friendly. Had the cauliflower appetizer and it was soggy and greasy and drenched in hot sauce. Steak frites was alright - just wish it was seasoned a bit more.

My third time at Boitson's was fantastic. We'll be back again I'm sure. Word to the wise - Monday nights are quite busy because most restaurants are closed that day so wait times may vary. Well worth it though!

Not sure there's anything to be done, but both inside and outside were extremely hot. Need more fans. The apps were so expensive compared to the amount of food that came with them. We ordered shishito peppers for $11 and got 12 ... usually it's a heaping. The cauliflower wings were also a smaller portion than usual. The food quality itself was pretty good. Just expensive for what we got.

Recently dined on the outdoor patio. The service was prompt and courteous, the food was well prepared .
The overall experience, however was not enjoyable because it was too loud to carry on a conversation with table mates. Music blared in the background and voices had to escalate to carry over the music.
I have eaten at Boitson's several times. The most enjoyable experience was on a cold wet night when people huddled quietly inside to enjoy a respite from the weather. I doubt I will return. I like to dine with friends and be able to share conversation over dinner.

The strawberry salad dressing was delicious. I added it on the side of my salad because I did not put enough of house dressing on the salad. I think there should be a variety of rolls , But I like the little piece of paper put on top of the butter. I liked all the waiters and waitresses worked together ! The food was amazing and I love the outside deck

The food was excellent. We had oysters and burgers. I'm glad the server suggested we get a selection of the oysters so we have an idea for next time.
The burgers are always delicious there.

We went after the movies for a light meal on a Friday night. We each had two apps, some of which would easily qualify as a main course. I had the little gem wedge (very substantial) and mussels... really rich (creme fraiche and chunks of pancetta? in the broth). Both excellent. However some items were out (because of the late hour?) PS My previous experience on a busy Saturday was not as satisfying.
