We had our wedding here last weekend and I cannot imagine a more perfect place to have held it. The food was incredible, the venue was beautiful and the staff was amazing. They were so accommodating and helpful all through the process. Kimberly Ann, the events coordinator, made helpful suggestions and gave so much attention to detail. And Gus, our Maitre'd, made sure that everything went exactly according to plan! When we went for our tasting, to select the final menu, it was both romantic and delicious...and the food was just as good at the reception! The wines they selected were a perfect accompaniment. If you're getting married in Westchester County, NY, this is the place to go! I will definitely use them again, next time I have a party to cater!
Planning a wedding is supposed to be stressful right? However working with Kimberly and Gustavo made planning my wedding a complete breeze!. They were available whenever I needed them, giving me suggestions and just making the whole process simple and fun. Kimberly was always available to answer any question even if I had already asked it before!
When the day finally came everything went smoothly, they were present without being intrusive. On our special day we were able to enjoy our time with our family and friends and not have to worry about anything because Kimberly and Gustavo had already taken care of it.
The food was fantastic all our guests enjoyed everything from the cocktail hour to dessert.
We had an outdoor wedding in October. The setting was beautiful.
Both my husband and I highly recommend this venue for any and every special occasion!
From our first visit to the Kittle House, we were so happy with the service we received. Everyone worked so hard to make the day perfect. Kimberly Ann and Gustavo were both so sweet. Every meeting with anyone from the Kittle House was a pleasure. We are just glad we can go back to the restaurant for many celebrations to come! I would recommend them to anyone.
I can not say enough wonderful things about the staff, decor, food, and overall venue that is Crabtree's Kittle House. I got married there on July 19, 2014 and it was the most perfect day. The staff at the Kittle House went above and beyond to ensure that my day was everything I imagined. Our wedding was large, with 175 guests, and we received so many compliments on the space. Our guests loved the cocktail hour food and space. We were able to use the bar and side patio, and guests enjoyed having an indoor/ outdoor option. The Kittle House graciously provided us with an Inn room for the night before and the night of the wedding. I used the room to get read with my bridal party and it made an amazing back drop for pictures. The staff was friendly and welcoming for the entire weekend. They made every guest feel taken care of. We still are getting compliments about the food! My wedding coordinator, Tiffany, went above and beyond for me. I had many particular touches and vintage finds I wanted to incorporate into my special day. I spent a lot of time during my engagement creating little DIY decor items. Tiffany made sure everything was set up perfectly, and really made my vision come to life. She made me feel like I was in great hands and left me nothing to worry about so I could enjoy my day. I can not say enough nice things about this venue and it's staff. Thank you to the Kittle House for making my wedding dreams come true!
Kittle House was the perfect choice for our wedding. After a full day of looking at multiple venues Kittle House was the last one on the list. When we arrived we were greeted by Barbara and she let us walk around freely to see the place for ourselves. It was a breath of fresh air to not feel any pressure as we looked around. Once we did we could see why there was no sales pitch as the venue was absolutely gorgeous and did all the talking on its own. The fact that it was a restaurant first made me confident the food would be great as well. After this visit we had that feeling that this would be the place where we would get married and booked it immediately.
Throughout the planning Barbara was very prompt with her responses and answered any and all questions I would have. She made me feel she had everything under control and it was a true pleasure working with her. They also made us feel very important and that our needs were of highest priority. It was impressive to see that kind of service to a place I can safely assume is booked solid throughout the year. Food tastings were a pleasure, again treated like VIPs. I appreciated the fact that they threw in some extra appetizers outside of our choices because it ultimately led us to choose them for our wedding. All the food is very tasty and is very high quality.
Day of the wedding I'll just sum up with one word, perfect. Everyone just seemed on top of their game. My biggest concern was the threat of rain, and Gustavo made sure to show me the exact plan if that did in fact happen and what would be done. Gustavo and Barbara also made sure my guests and I were taken care of before the wedding started, even gave me a beer to help calm me down. The reception hall itself far exceeded my expectations, props to my planner and florist. We were blessed with the perfect weather for our ceremony and the Kittle House sure made it evident. Cocktail hour was setup directly next to the ceremony area, but it was far enough that it didn't seem cramped. The view of the golf course behind was a beautiful touch, my guests couldn't stop telling me how much they loved the view from their rooms. Service throughout the wedding was great, all our wishes were fulfilled. There was a small hitch with timing between surprise serenades and food, but Gustavo gave me zero problems when I requested the food be put on halt for a few minutes. All my guests loved the food, portabello mushroom with palenta was a clear winner for appetizer choice. The main courses went very well, everyone who got the trout enjoyed it and same went for those who chose steak. I must say one of the best parts was the ice cream bar outside, and I can't thank Barbara enough for having that suggestion and option. After the wedding was over there were guests who wanted to stick around and Leo made sure we were accommodated late into the night. All in all the staff, in my opinion, went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and taken care of. My wife and I can't wait to go back for our 1 year anniversary!
My husband and I just got married on July 5th and Kimberly was there every step of the way to ensure our day was PERFECT! Kimberly and I exchanged multiple correspondence in the months leading up to the wedding and she was a tremendous help!
We had an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour in the lovely garden and then a beautiful night in the atrium room, but still allowed guests to enjoy the beautiful night outside. The whole night was absolutely amazing, from the impeccable service and outstanding menu and food!! Your guests will not be disappointed!! We received many messages saying, "that was the best wedding we have ever been to."
We highly recommend having your wedding at Crabtree's Kittle House!!
Such a magical experience having our wedding at Crabtree's Kittle House. Everything was so wonderful. The food was delicious, the service was wonderful, and the assistance you receive..omg! Kimberly & Gustavo were absolutely amazing. Responding to emails all year and the day of, Gustavo was so spot on. He was constantly there to help with anything I needed, and made the whole thing so seamless.
I can't wait to go back for our anniversary! The Inn is also beautiful! Our room to get ready in (2J) was magnificent! Huge and perfect for all of us to get ready in. We got married October 25 and the foliage in that area was spectacular. They really keep the grounds beautiful.
Crabtree's Kittle House is a true gem! We worked primarily with Kimberly Ann in planning the wedding and reception for our daughter's wedding in Chappaqua, N.Y. She is outstanding in her role, extremely knowledgeable, yet also flexible, calming and reassuring in listening and making suggestions to make everything perfect for the wedding day! The setting is spectacular, the entire staff provides excellent service, and the cuisine, from the hors d'oeuvres to dinner through dessert, was fabulous! We couldn't have been happier with our experience with the Kittle House!
The service at the Kittle House is wonderful! From the first time we went to see the venue, the staff are incredibly attentive. We worked with Kim who was always responsive to our emails and always a pleasure to meet with. She helped us think through the details, the timing, etc. The Kittle House has a reputation for great food, and every time we've eaten there we've been thoroughly impressed. I would say though that on our actual wedding day, the food fell a little bit short. The pasta dish that they served wasn't the one that we had originally picked, and the salmon was a bit over cooked and under-sauced. But besides these small details, the venue was beautiful and perfect for the wedding we wanted, and the service was really great!
When my husband and I got engaged we didn't know too much about wedding planning but we did know that we did NOT want banquet wedding food. We searched countless venues in the area and while they were all beautiful, Crabtree's Kittle House was the perfect fit for us. The entire staff went above and beyond to help us coordinate our day and execute a memorable and exquisite day.
I can't thank the Sales team for their creative suggestions and the chef's willingness to customize our menu to fit our personalities. Every interaction from our initial meeting, tasting, menu selection & actual wedding day exceeded our expectations and I would 1000% recommend the beautiful venue and professional staff to everyone and anyone for their special day. A special thanks to Gustavo for helping to coordinate our large bridal party, we couldn't have done it without you!!!
My husband Mike & I married here on May 25, 2013. We planned the wedding from a distance and everything went very well. The wedding coordinator Kimberly was wonderful to work with and all of our requests were honored. She was receptive to our ideas and had a wealth of suggestions. The day of our wedding all went without a hitch! We had a terrific day, the food was great and our guests were very happy!
Crabtree's Kittle House met or exceeded every expectation that I had for my wedding day.
They made my planning effortless. I met with Kimberly and she guided me through the menu planning. She was so nice and helpful and really listened to what I needed. She was constantly in touch and never seemed confused about anything that we had talked about. She made me feel like mine was the only wedding that she had coming up.
On the day of the event, everything flowed wonderfully. The Kittle House did a great job of coordinating with our vendors. We didn't really have to worry about them at all. The waitstaff were amazing and Gustavo did a great job keeping the flow of the evening going. The food was DELICIOUS and ABUNDANT.
We got excellent feedback from our guests. Everyone had a great time.
This place is AMAZING and beautiful. If you choose the Kittle House you will have no regrets. It is an excellent value.
AMAZING!! The service was absolutely perfect - always anticipating our guest's needs and on hand, but never in the way. Communication and flexibility of the vendor and main contacts was superb. If they could not respond right away they would still let me know that they would get back to me shortly. Especially since I planned this wedding from overseas that was an immense help!
Their professionalism from start to finish made our day perfect and effortless. We opted for the buffet and it was great - this way our family and friends could go up for seconds and thirds. The staff helped us cater to our guests and even worked around a surprise food allergy, creating a special meal for one guest then and there.
Our guests were raving about the quality and how it perfectly suited us. Also super handy having Mt Kisko nearby and the Westchester Airport.
I would recommend Kittle House to anyone looking for great food, drinks and service along with a cosy elegant feel.
The food was amazing, the service perfect, the scenery beautiful and our wedding was simply amazing. Our guests still talk about how much fun they had and how great the food was. Everyone on staff is truly helpful and they make every effort to ensure you have the wedding you envisioned. I cannot recommend them enough!
My husband and I chose the Kittle House for our ceremony and reception and we could not be happier with the results! We knew we didn't want one of the "wedding factories" that the lower Hudson Valley has to offer, and for me, I knew I wanted an outdoor ceremony with a garden feel-and boy did this place deliver! From beginning to end, Kimberly Ann and Gustavo and the rest of the staff were so accommodating and gracious. They provided excellent service, the food was amazing and the grounds were picturesque. The inn at the Kittle House was amazing as well and the inn keeper Betty is the sweetest woman! If you're looking for a simple, elegant, quaint location to have your wedding, this is the place for you. My husband and I will be returning every year for our anniversary (and for other occasions as well)! I hope this review is helpful to all of those Hudson Valley brides out there!
Crabtree's Kittle House is an incredible place to hold your wedding reception! The Kittle House team is amazingly caring, talented, thoughtful and completely invested in ensuring that your wedding day is just how you picture it! Our guests continue to remark on how amazing the wedding was - the food was truly wonderful (not just compared to wedding food, but compared to restaurants in general), the drinks were delicious and well-presented, the day was seamless and the service was truly exceptional. The setting is classic and elegant!
We have already returned to this wonderful restaurant several times, and look forward to returning many more times (it's a wonderful place to mark special occasions, but also to just enjoy a delicious meal without an occasion)! We could not be more happy with our choice to hold our wedding at the Kittle House, and give it our highest possible recommendation!
Crabtree Kittle House was an amazing venue - we loved the place, service, delicious food and beautiful setting.
We just got married at the Kittle House two days ago. Gustavo, the maitre'd, did an amazing job organizing the actual day and guiding the event. The whole evening flowed so well, and all of our guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to! Maybe everyone says that all the time, but for my husband and I, the day could not have gone more perfectly. We got ready separately in the inn rooms upstairs, and were led down just before the procession. I walked down the beautiful white staircase out the back, onto the lawn, where white chairs were set up, against a beautiful backdrop of greenery (the back lawn overlooks a private golf course, so there is no noise, and just beautiful scenery). We got to take a group picture on the white staircase with all of our guests, which we will use for our next Christmas cards. Our cocktail hour was on the outdoor patio, and then we entered into the beautiful atrium room for our reception of dinner and dancing. All our guests commented on how amazing the food was, the chefs put together a bbq buffet, and the spare ribs were unbelievable!!! Gustavo even took my plate to my table for me, and helped me sit down. We even went a little over our time, and didn't feel we had to cut anything short! The staff set us up in the side garden for an after party. They lit a fire, had music quietly playing in the background, and provided cups, and ice for our young friends that wanted to keep the party going! I could go on, and on, and on, about how great the Kittle House is. If you are looking for charming, classy, and intimate, this is your wedding venue!
I recently got married at Crabtree's Kittle House. It was nothing short of amazing. The staff was incredibly helpful during the entire process - start to end. Everything was run so smoothly, if there any problems I and my guests never knew. Very patient and accommodating. The place is lovely - simple and elegant. Much better than those wedding factories... The food also - way above most wedding venues, since the Kittle House is very well known as a restaurant. If you want an amazing day that your guests will rave about, definitely sign up with the Kittle House!
I had my wedding at Crabtree's Kittle House and had an amazing time! The staff is easy to work with and made sure that everything we needed was available. I was invited to the space multiple times during the course of my wedding planning. The fact that we were able to go upstairs and sleep after the wedding was a huge plus.
