My girlfriend and I went to dinner during a weekend trip to the Kingston area. It was a little chilly out, but the patio area with the heaters was fantastic. Good options for beer. I had the steak frites, which were great (a little rarer than I would have liked, but still a good meal). The friend chicken was awesome... More

In the wilds of the North, restaurants claiming to be Louisiana-style or Cajun or anything like that are almost uniformly at least disappointing and sometimes dreadful. Boitsin's in uptown Kingston was therefore a delightful surprise--the gumbo was practically perfect--alas, no filé, though--and an appetizer billed as crawfish beignets proved to contain large quantities of actual crawfish. The fried chicken was... More

and a great local, Keegans draft beer. If this place hadn't been recommended to me, from the sidewalk appearance, I probably wouldn't have even stuck my head in the door. So glad they had a table for me, out back, on the patio. Large screen playing "Five Easy Pieces," and then, "Grease." Fun, festive, and great service. I had eaten... More

Boitson's is one of the better restaurants in Kingston. It has an old time oyster house feel with great 'new' American cuisine. It is fairly priced and the service is professional, you don't always get that in Kingston. The food is very good, I've eaten there several times and intend to return. The restaurant's back story, on the menu, is... More

You be the judge. I met my girl friend at Boitson's and have had decent dinners there over the past year. Not great...not terrible...not worthy of comment, really. Friday night, however, my experience was terrible. Sitting at Boitson's inside bar, i ordered a "Hudson Valley ribeye with garlic butter sauce". I was served a decent...not great...ribeye...smothered in coarsely chopped garlic... More

Was driving upstate and needed to stop for dinner. Found Boitson's on this site and was pleased with what I found. My companion and I decided not to sit on the very nice rear deck because it was very noisy which would have made conversing difficult. Inside was cozy and dark. As it filled up it became noisy as well.... More

We had a terrific dinner and great wine this weekend at a "true find" in Kingston. The dinner started with a delicious rose wine and then 4 of us shared a few salads that were all unique and great. The dishes we tried were roasted cod with wild rice risotto and beens, fried chicken and masked potato and stuffed hen.... More

Stumbled upon this place via TripAdvisor when looking for something to do and somewhere to eat in Kingston. Excellent! The weather allowed us to sit on the deck out back which seems to have a very different, open and relaxed vibe than the inside of the restaurant (inside looks nice too though). Food was tasty and very reasonably priced...and the... More

Read the back story on Boitson's website, and you'll get a pretty good idea of what the place is like. We really enjoyed our food, and the cocktail menu enticed us to have an after dinner drink-unusual for us. The waiter was a bit unsure of himself, but everybody's a newbie at some point. Choose the patio if the weather... More

The menu was creative and the food was very fresh. We sampled the bourbon maple-glazed salmon, a pasta dish with prosciutto and melon, various salads, and a burger. All were delicious The service, however, was a bit slow.
