Charming, historic restaurant with superb ambiance and great country French food. Perfect evening in the country.
Food was just okay, thought it was going to be much better. We wouldn’t go back.
Wonderful food, excellent service. Loved talking with Chef.
Stissing House has delicious food, gracious service and warm ambiance. Recommend it highly.
The Stissing House Restaurant is located in a marvelous 236 year-old building. The proveçal (French/Mediterranean) food is excellent and sourced locally. The wine list is international and reasonably priced. The classic cocktails are prepared perfectly. The service is personal, friendly and professional the way it can only be in family owned and deeply cared about establishments.
The lighting in the dining room seemed a little bright so we chose to sit in a charming side room with a cozy fire burning. This is truly a special place and I highly recommend you make the trip to go there for dinner or brunch.
The food was absolutely great,and the service was first class
as usual, outstanding service, excellent food and drink
Stissing is always a cozy place on a cold night with consistently good food and excellent service by an experienced wait staff.
Food was very good, staff was friendly and attentive. My wife and I went here for a date night and brought our 6 and 4 yr old boys (our boys are very well behaved). The building has beautiful woodwork inside and a two sided fireplace. It feels as if we were in somebody’s house having dinner. Overall our experience was great and we will definitely be back. A nice gem in a small village, if you’re in the area you won’t be disappointed! Thank you Stissing House for a great night out!
Wonderful "destination" restaurant, in a beautiful little town. Great food, lovely ambience and I particularly enjoyed our "hosts". The owners are a fabulous couple who really know how to create a perfect dining experience!
In my opinion, this is the best restaurant in the Millbrook area, delivering s consistently all around high quality dining experience
We are regulars at the Stissing House. They never fail to satisfy. Food quality and selection is impeccable, and the service is always polite and attentive.
First time we've been there in about 10 years and we were kind of disappointed with the food. My husband was served undercooked chicken and less-than-tasty French onion soup. The other three of us had better outcomes, but thought it should be a 4 out of 4 restaurant, considering the prices for this area.
Enjoy Stissing House for its country charm and diverse menu. Pine Plains is a bit of a drive but Stissing is unique offering a variety of dining rooms making it especially attractive weather dining alone or with a private night out with friends. The food, prepared by a French chef is not strictly French but his culinary skill is on display.
Always good food and great service, one of our favorite places to eat.
We dine at the Stissing house frequently. We were seated in a weird location that did not add tot he dining experience. Overall, the food is delightful and still a favorite place to eat.
Wonderful as always!
We were on a girl's weekend, and this was our only dinner in a restaurant. What a pleasant surprise to find this gem of a dining experience. The flash fried mushrooms were a hit!
Fine dining in cozy country setting. Lively tap room as well as small dining rooms and rooms for small private parties. The menu offers an array of food, entres as varied as burgers to gourmet preparation of fish, chicken and steaks. The food is as appatizing as the setting. A great place for friends to meet in a small private dining room or the buz of the tap room make this restaurant a memorable evening out.
One of my very favorite restaurants all around.
One of our favorite restaurants in a charming setting with
superb food and a happy helpful staff and great
ambiance. We are there often!
Have eaten here many times. This was the best. Service, food, ambiance in the grill room, and noise level we're excellent.
Four diners , four distinct dinners, all superb.
This was a total find! The chef is inventive and the food is simple but very delicious
I had been sick but we had promised to take our 13 yr. old grand daughter there. She loves it but lives in CA. I notified the maitre'd who told the chef I could only eat the plainest possible thing. He made a beautiful little cake of perfectly cooked Quinoa, no oil or butter and presented it with a little tomato rose. So kind to take that trouble! And it was actually delicious in a very plain way. This is an example of really good service from chef to server to maitre'd.
This is a beautiful old inn/restaurant. Since it was a nice summer evening, we ate on the front porch, which looks out on the main street of quaint Pine Plains. The town is straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting. We ordered small dishes: crab cakes, wild mushrooms and mussels along with a glass of wine and local beer. Everything was delicious, and the small-size mussels were very fresh (a freshness hard to find in upstate New York, far from the water). Stissing also serves steak, pork and fish, etc., with daily specials. I like the fact that a lot of their food is locally sourced. Take note: they don't serve lunch during summer but will serve it again starting in the fall.
Great atmosphere but food was just ok
Excellent food, service, and ambiance. Delicious, fresh salads and fish. We had a lovely meal, delicious wine, and a wonderful experience. It is fortunate that we have such a fine French restaurant here in Pine Plains.
Aside from the grumpy hostess who was pretty rude when we asked to change tables to the main room (that had plenty tables available), we had another nice evening at Stissing House. Food was solid and table service was pleasant and attentive.
After ordering a salad as my dinner, I received a very small amount of greens, a few beet slices and pea-sized pieces of goat cheese. The salad was listed under "Salads", apart from appetizers, but the server said it was an "appetizer salad" and I would have had to specify a dinner salad if I wanted it larger. How would I know that? For $14 it was completely overpriced! Fortunately the company I was with made up for the lack of food.
Was let down by the food quality at this old and charming room. My steak was over cooked and replaced by one with so much gristle it was inedible. No effort was made to remove from bill. Wine list decent and well priced. Limited great options for vegetarians. Great whipped potatoes and fries!
Fine night out but one should except more of a pub meal than fine dining
High recommendation. Always love the food and welcoming service.
We stop here often. Service is second to none in Dutchess County. Food always good and Chef highly visible and genuine. This should be on everyone's rotation. The waitresses here are polite and knowledgeable and do a great job.
We had dined with friends and family well over 10 years ago. We liked it then, but the current owners have taken it to the next level. They've found the perfect blend of Provençal dishes and local ingredients. Bravo!
Great time, wondeful food and service will go again and again
Our food was terrible. We ordered lamb, how difficult is it to prepare rack of lamb? It tasted terrible. When we complained, the chef/owner came out and argued with us. It is a beautiful atmosphere, but the culinary experience does not compare to the aesthetics.
Good service. Pleasant waitstaff. Very good food. Noise level not at all disturbing, or distracting.
Good conversation with chef/proprietor. My friend and I were left to talk past closing time. Bartender generous with his drinks. The Cape Cod oysters were fresh and crisp. A pleasant time was had by all.
Excellent service and atmosphere. Menu was filled with delectable choices - it was hard to pick a meal!
Stissing House is wonderful: elegantly-prepared yet approachable food that changes seasonally. Good service and lovely ambience. They are also very chilled out about us bringing our toddler and the high chair is always ready and waiting at the table when we make a reservation. Great, local restaurant, it's always such a treat to go!
Excellent as always. Great staff, owners and delicious French-style cuisine.
The food was delicious and memorable. We were with a chef and two other industry professionals and they were impressed.
