  • "Still the best restaurant in Rockland County....never disappoints....."

  • "Finally tried the much-talked about Restaurant X brunch. It was fabulous! So many small courses, all delish. Took 3 kids with us and they were treated wonderfully by the staff. Champagne is flowing and the food keeps coming...all for a very reasonable price."

  • "I had dined at original Bully Boy as far back as 40 years ago…it was always wonderful. Now as Restaurant X, I have to say it was as enjoyable. Extensive menu…the tuna was great…the garden room overlooking the brook…and the ambiance and service in general…all great! Don't live in the area anymore, but would return when passing by! A few years ago we ha our Rotary brunch which as an eating marathon for hours…also excellent."

  • "celebrated anniversary. everything we ate was EXCELLENT and the service was outstanding. the waitress knew my steak slices (rib eye) were too rare and immediately brought slices back to be redone( my husband liked the steak medium rare and that is how it was ordered. it was NOT a fault of the chef. portions were large. we could've shared both our appetizers and desserts. can't wait to go back."

  • "We have been dining at Restaurant X for many years, yhe food was always excellent, the past 3 times we have dined there the food was definitely not good. My trout was dry and overcooked, my husband's beef wellington was tough and grisly. Previous to that the soft shell crabs, were hard and tough."

The food was delicious and the dessert was as well. Presentation was beautiful. Overall a fantastic experience."

  • "Celebrated my daughter's high school graduation this week and, as always, the food was fantastic and the service was great. The only two complaints I have were (1) a busboy dropped a fork on my shoulder and stained my jacket, which I did not see until I got home, but accidents happen, and (2) there was a large family party sitting in the same part of the restaurant and they had small kids, ages 5-12, who were very loud and the parents were completely oblivious or just didn't care. Made it very difficult to chat at our table."

  • "We chose to return to Restaurant X after an absence of many years, primarily for the Beef Wellington which was delicious, though out of 4 orders, none was really "medium" or medium rare--all were more on the rare side. As the meat was hot enough and the meat was tender, we all ate out delicious dinners. The truffle potato puree did not seem to have much truffle flavor to it but the potatoes were creamy. One order of potatoes did serve well for two people. The Beef Wellington is served with the most lovely presentation of vegetables. Nick was our server, very delightful, helpful and friendly. Black and White parfait, Espresso Mousse, Molten cake and almond cake desserts were enjoyed and consumed to completion."

  • "Restaurant X is a sure bet for a special dinner (or a fantastic brunch)! While it is on the pricey side, the service is exquisite and solicitous without being stuffy. The food is always fresh and delicious and beautifully presented."

  • "I've gone to X several times over the past years and have never been disappointed. Cordial staff, attentive and wanting to please the customers. The food is clearly top notch, the men had the Cowboy Steak for two....the woman the fish special.... and the "must have deserts menu was wonderful....everything was delicious. Keep up the good work X...and we'll keep coming back."

  • "The restaurant itself is lovely. We were seated by a window at my request. The chef came to greet us. But from the start the service was terrible. It took a long time to get cocktails. It took a long time to "find the wine in the cellar" then for food water and finally dessert. We essentially closed the restaurant and began at 7:30. The young girl taking our order was sweet but very inexperienced. It made all the difference I don't know that I would go back."

    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "This is a pricey restaurant that the average person would visit only for special occasions. We routinely eat in all types of restaurants, and this one has great-sounding lamb, duck, seafood, beef, etc. We had a very good sea scallop appetizer, but both of our entrees (lamb and soft-shell crab) and our other appetizer of calamari were merely good. For the price of the dishes and the reputation of the restaurant, I expected more."

  • "We have been to this restaurant before and enjoyed it very much. This time we were very disappointed. My friend and I ordered the vegetarian polenta main course which came at room temperature when it should have been hot. One man ordered the chicken with frites, the frites were also at room temperature and were returned for hot ones. The fourth person in our party ordered the hanger steak rare but it came well done. He never returns food but he did this time and received one done properly. Gabrielle, I believe the manager, was very gracious and apologized for the mistakes. She tried to rectify everything and treated us to a large piece of cake as a compliment."

  • "I have been to the brunch at Restaurant X several times and as usual it didn't disappoint. From the first course to the final dazzling display of desserts, every bite was delicious. It is a brunch that is not to be missed and is perfect for any occasion."

  • " We have been dining here for close to 30 years- pre- Peter Kelly and Restaurant X- back in the day when you were offered fresh fruit with port wine and scones on arrival at your table. The food is certainly excellent but service was sooooooo slow!! and the place half empty when we arrived at 6:30- It is still one of our favorite special occasion spots!! Expect a leisurely pace and great ambiance."

Seems like Every place in Rockland is an Italian/pizza joint, so when we ate here, and we have been to his other restaurants which are all excellent, we were excited to finally find a good restaurant in Rockland!! - Great food, good selection and no Veal Parm and Ziti . . .finally!!"

  • " In celebrating our anniversary at X we had been looking forward to a wonderful dining experience.No kids, just 2 people celebrating 20 years of marriage. Peter Kelly's restaurants have always been detail oriented in the execution of their dishes. Not this time. Very upsetting on a special day. Did not want to further ruin the anniversary by complaining or constructively criticizing on site. I would recommend in future once all shortcomings are polished up inside the kitchen & out."

  • "Since it was our first time at this restaurant and some of the reviews said it was extremely noisy, we asked for a quiet table and were seated in one of the smaller rooms. The table was quiet, but it was near the handicapped access door and there was a steady stream of people in and out, some with walkers and wheelchairs, some going out for a smoke, some leaving the door open for an extended time and creating a draft. We were warned there might be a few but it was a never-ending stream--don't ever sit there."

  • "My wife and I were going out to celebrate her birthday. The food was very good but the noise was deafening. We were in the main room and we couldn't even hear each other right across the table. Apparently there were other rooms in the restaurant where the mood was calmer but unfortunately we didn't know to ask for a table there. The maitre d' asked if we wanted to switch tables but by that time, we were already done with our meal. Also, while our waitress and other staff were attentive, the main course took 45 minutes to come out; kind of long in our opinion. All in all, a solid meal but the ambience - and rather slow delivery of the food - would likely cause us not to return (as we made a special trip from Westchester). X20 was better... "

  • "My parents went to the Bully Boy forever, and my wife and I had really enjoyed a special dinner at Xavier's in Piermont (same ownership and chef as Restaurant X), so this seemed like a good choice for a pre-Mothers Day dinner. And it was. The food was exceptional, a nice blend of familiar ingredients and unique approaches, all executed perfectly. Every dish (we shared an appetizer, had two entrees, and shared a dessert) was exceptional. The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Our waiter showed up right when needed, but didn't hover or make us feel at all rushed on a busy Saturday night. The result was a relaxed, highly satisfying night out. Prices are not low, but on par with other higher end spots in the area."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "After having been many times to Xavier's in Piermont and Bully Boy's years ago, Restaurant X was a huge disappointment. The noise level is unbearable for dining. We were in a quiet small dining room, but kids were running around. We asked to be moved. We were put near the big window near the pond. Lovely view, but the noise level on a Friday night was dreadful. I hated having to walk up a few flights of slate steps at my age. The walk up from parking is smelly, with peeling paint on doors and is tacky. The dessert menu is awful. Only the creme brulee was good. The caesar salad was junky with too much garlic. The bok choy was undercooked and the salmon dish a wet mess. The bathrooms were a filthy dirty mess. Dreadful experience. Food, eh. "
