“Uptown Jewel”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

I've been to Boitson's 3 times now and the food is consistently excellent. The restaurant is very small, but comfortable. The look and feel reminds me of a trendy Manhattan restaurant and it's great for impressing friends or a date. The staff never once said that they had outdoor (back patio) seating, but I discovered it (on my first visit) on a trip to the bathroom. Im glad I did because it's the best seating in the house! They have an outdoor bar they just put there as well with lounge like furniture etc. Overall, this trendy spot gets a big thumbs up.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The only good thing about this restaurant was the waiter. Friendly service, good atmosphere, great outside deck, terrible food. My husband ordered the much talked about fried chicken. Absolutely no flavor. It was the type of crust that falls apart as you eat it and not in a good way. The white meat wasn't dry at least but what a disappointment. I had a red beet and Swiss chard hash. Nothing more than some sautéed vegetables with little flavor. My stomach was not feeling well so the blandness of the dish was okay for me. Caprese salad special was just ok. I think the reason they do well is that they offer vegan and gluten free dishes. The neighborhood it was in was cute but go elsewhere to eat.

“The place to go in uptown Kingston”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Excellent food and ambiance, with a very comfortable back deck and friendly, attentive service. Menu interesting without being fussy (the chicken mousse was wonderful!); Nice selection of interesting well-priced wines by the glass. A great place.

“Good food, great value, warm and friendly service and setting--”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

We had dinner at Boitson's last night. We were there for the Thursday night fried chicken special--two pieces of crispy, greaseless, moist chicken, mashed potatoes, and sugar snap peas--for $12.00!! Delicious cocktails too and you are made to feel like a regular, even if you're not. It's a warm, cozy, and lively place. You won't be disappointed!

“On point.”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

I have been going to Boitson's since they opened and it has been consistently excellent. Maria Phillipis is a true restauranteur. The menu is eclectic while being cohesive. The fried chicken is always great and the specials are interesting and exceed expectations.
