One of Rockland County's Finest ResRestaurant X in Congers, NY owned by Peter Kelly never fails to meet all expectations. Food is excellent, much like a big city bistro.

FoodLove the Sunday brunch. Food wonderful, service exceptional, captain most attentive, very special occasion restaurant.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMenjoyable night outoverall the food is excellent and the ambience was relaxaing in a resored farm home, with multiple rooms to keep the number of guests in any room fairly small. The wait staff was enthusiastic, but a bit unpolished. I have no hesitancy to go back, however.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding experienceThe whole experience from the moment we walked in to the time we walked out was incredible...6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMEven though we have to crossEven though we have to cross the Hudson and pay the tolls, this place is worth the trip.

We have been there several times and are never disappointed. All of the meals are well prepared, well presented and very tasty. Service was professional and timely. I highly recommend it.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant, but...I have visited this restaurant at least a dozen times in my lifetime. It is a great restaurant with usually great food and fabulous service. I found the food on this visit a peg lower in quality than all of my previous visits. I certainly plan on coming back. Several factors can affect one's perception. Not all of those factors are within the control of the restaurant. I may have made a poor dinner selection for me this time. So, it would not be fair for me to put that on the restaurant. The waitress was excellent. She had a great personality and was extremely attentive to our needs without being intrusive. The ambiance was great, as usual. I'm looking forward to my next visit and will share my review as it compares to this one.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGood value for the priceAll the food was delicious! I had brunch with coworkers and we were all pleased!

This was our first time ordering off the regular menu. The food was delicious and the portions were perfect. I had the Veal Hangar Steak and my boyfriend had the Panko Crusted Trout. Save room for dessert - we had the caramel cake with coffee ice cream. Their Creme Brule is also wonderful. They also serve a piece of chocolate when they bring the check.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMStill the one!Great place for dining. Peter Kelly is friendly and a great chef. The salmon is terrific. The beet salad is divine. Have loved having this restaurant close by. Miss the scones and honey though! Just kidding.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways ReliableWe have been eating here for years. The food is always impeccable as well as the service. It is a Peter Kelly gem. We come here for just casual dining or for special occasions and never hesitate to bring out out of town guests here.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMX-tremely Great Dining Experience!My wife and I went here for an anniversary dinner. The food was A++. Especially loved the rock shrimp and calamari appetizer and the crab dumplings were great, too. Best Beef Wellington I ever had, perfectly cooked vegetable risotto, and they personalized our dessert (toffee pudding cake) for our anniversary. Attentive, friendly service and an overall great dining experience. I had high expectations going in and Restaurant X absolutely X-ceeded them. Will definitely go there again and now want to check out chef Xaviar's other restaurants.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love this restaurant forWe love this restaurant for lunch when it is so very quiet with great service. Have not done dinner but imagine it is much more crowded. The food is wonderful and the pre-fix $25 lunch is reasonable for 3 courses.

The food and service at all of Peter Kelly's restaurants are consistently great.We try to rotate venues since each place has its' own special feel and menu. During this visit, Peter Kelly was walking around the dining room and he stopped to talk with us for a few minutes. I thought this was a very nice touch and made our visit even more enjoyable.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food, but not theVery good food, but not the outstanding experience I had expected. Short ribs very good but pretty traditional. Brook trout had too much butter sauce. Pear tart desert was excellent and large enough for two.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Meal I've HadMy family and I wanted to try the brunch for the first time, but was turned down because of no availability. Since it was my daughter's birthday and this is her favorite restaurant, I didn't want to disappoint her, so I made a reservation for the evening before. I'm so glad I did. The service and food were outstanding. To my surprise, the staff apparently read my note on OpenTable and recognized her birthday during dessert. They provided her with her own mini mousse cake with candle and "happy birthday" written on the plate.
The staff was extremely attentive and the food cooked to perfection.
I would recommend Restaurant X to anyone who wants a special meal for any and all occasions.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality and Excellence!Our family party of 6 was given an excellent table in a quiet corner beside the fireplace. It was wonderful!

The spiciness was enough to tickle the palate. Yet not overpowering. The trofie pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe was excellent, the broccoli was cooked to perfection not bitter. You cannot beat the dark chocolate dessert, light and delicate. I had a cappucino to finish out a lovely evening with friends. Everyone left happy, very satisfied and ready to return when the trees are green adding to our country view. Chef Peter Kelly visited each table greeting every guest with a warm friendly feeling.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the second time I'veThis is the second time I've eaten at Restaurant X and it was Xcellent! I went with the waiter's suggestion of fish and it was a very flavorful, and substantial in size, piece of salmon.

My husband had the salmon and i had the Murray's chicken.
Both excellent.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went solely for restaurantWe went solely for restaurant week menu which was outstanding..being a Matre'de myself I felt a bit rushed in the beginning, the 1st course came out before we even got our bread or drinks..my thought was they were trying to turn the "restaurant week"table over quickly.. We had an issue w/ our 2nd round of drinks.. my orchard apple restaurant week special martini was fabulous the 1st time,but the 2nd one tasted completely different & was even a different color..when we said something to our waiter, he took the drink away & came back w/the same drink only a stronger undrinkable version,I then took matters into my own hands&got the very efficient hostess involved..all was good until the wrong dessert was placed in front of me.it was switched.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant X never disappoints.Restaurant X never disappoints. It has a charming, elegant atmosphere, great food, and impeccable service. We were there last night to celebrate our friends' anniversary, and we all ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. There were several wonderful selections in each category. My mushroom ravioli appetizer and garlic shrimp entree were excellent - and I heard raves regarding the potato and leek soup, hanger steak, and salmon. This is a great place to go if you want to be sure that you will have a perfect meal and a wonderful overall experience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe seating was quite comfortableThe seating was quite comfortable in a relaxed atmosphere. The waiters couldn't do enough to please and suggest wine matches for our entrees. The house martini was delicious. Our meals were absolutely delicious...very fresh. The fresh warm out of the oven rolls melted in your mouth.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for Hudson Valley RestaurantWent for Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, as we do every year. Nice changes to past 2 year's menu. If not for the overly fried salmon tempura rol appetizer, the food was excellent, as always. Very nice atmosphere, until the loud gentleman sat next to us. Unfortunately, the tables for 2 are too close to each other. Rather than create a confrontation by asking this man to shut up, we dealt with it through the last part of our meal. Normally, even though close, it had never befor presented much of a problem.
Restaurant X is excellent. The food and service is best around Rockland.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways enjoyableIt's always enjoyable at Restaurant X anf Bully Boy bar.
