This is my favorite restaurant in Ulster county.The food is so fresh and beyond amazing. Full of flavor everything I have ever had. I am also very pleased with the assortment of wines. If you have never been here you are truly missing out! The service has always been excellent to.

A nice small food and beer and wine friendly place. Quite unusual and well executed food from a tiny kitchen and a small thoughtful bar selection.. Don't be in a hurry here, sit back and savor the food and atmosphere, such quality food from such a small kiitchen will take time, but its well worth it.

The tacos pastor are amazing. I have been in this place only three times and it has won me over. Everything on the menu is simply amazing. The snail toast is so rich in flavor. The tacos pastor had me craving more before I even finished them. Well done!

This place has a mixed restaurant/bar feel and is cozy. The food was amazing. The pork belly tacos were awesome as was their portobello mushroom dish. As a music person their background music was great. Any place where I can hear b side Beatles and Rolling Stones and then catch Primus and the Velvet Underground is OK with me. Make... More

Very small space with a tight staff provide a hip vibe for the best food in the region. Small plates of well conceived and prepared dishes make Elephant my go-to place in the Hudson valley when I want to relax on my own or impress visitors with reliably delicious food. Great imagination and execution goes into each dish here. Although... More

hands down,one of my all time fave places to eat. ANYTHING on the menu is melt in your mouth, from the stuffed peppers to the tacos el pastor, to the daily fish special....It is a culinary treat,and the atmosphere is great too--dark and stormy. It is not a huge place, so it wouldn't be the best place for a big... More

went out for dinner with friends last night to a new restaurant, Elephant, in nearby Kingston, NY. They serve tapas, beer and wine. We felt instantly welcome and at home, seated at one of the tables near the open kitchen. It's a small place but there's a great bar, a number of small tables and room for lounging or setting...

Our food was excellent! They actually prepare the food on hot plates in their kitchen. Its a cute, little, laid back spot in uptown Kingston. I would definitely return.

Tapas gone wild. Really spectacular! Incredible fusion of farm to table meats and cheeses. Outstanding service. Excellent wine by the glass selections. If you are in Kingston, you have to give it a go. Chorizo and chocolate? Huh? It works! Pickled Portuguese Peppers - we fought over the last one. Too many small plates to review, but suffice to say,... More
