“A place to take your friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

We usually go in the winter when the dining rooms have the open hearths burning. It is a very old inn and the decor takes you back about 200 years. We usually have steak. Very good. Delicious desserts. Friendly and attentive wait staff. Very warm and relaxing dining areas. One day we plan to go on a summer night so we can sit on the back terrace. We don't go out to eat that often so a place has to have the right mix of good food and atmosphere to attract us.

“Good Food, Historical Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

We love eating at the Hoffman House. The atmosphere in the old dutch stone farmhouse, even though located nearly in the center of the city of Kingston, New York, is great, with wide plank flooring, multiple levels of small rooms and a small bar area. You can order classic bar food, or get some great gourmet dishes. Our favorite in Kingston, we've gone as a couple and with groups as large as 20.

“Exceptional Evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

We were walk-ins on a recent Saturday evening. We love to eat at restaurants located in historic buildings and this one certainly fit the bill. It turned out to be an exceptional dining experience.
Everything about our evening there was exceptional!
The building and decor, the greeting we received, the dining room we were seated in, and, most importantly, the food itself. The service was attentive but not obtrusive. My wife had the lamb which she said was excellent. I rated my crab cakes entree the same way.
One added thing - when we got the check for the meal, we were both surprised at how reasonable it was for the quality that we received.
Can't wait to get back to that area so that we can return.

“Old school fare but favorful; eat outside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

Went on a nice summer evening. Entered and was dismayed by the early 18th century decor and (lack of) lighting, but luckily the outdoor patio was open. Very attentive service, good food (we had the lamb and the duck). We split two appetizers -- both well-prepared: the onion soup and the steamed clams. A salad came with the meal. A good choice if you are in Kingston.
