X2O Xaviars on the Hudson
return experienceWe've dined at X2O several times and have never been disappointed. Qualith of staff, food and decor are always the vest.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great brunch!We love, love, love this restaurant for the Sunday brunch. You can't beat the value! A three-course prixe fix brunch for $38 including unlimited prosecco cocktails. The food is always wonderful and the specials that we enjoyed this time around were absolutely amazing. If you have children, steer clear of the regular children's options which are either chicken fingers or pasta for $10 and ask instead to have children's sized portions of the dishes on the main menu, which they will do for you for half price. Our three year old is a little foodie in the making and refused both the chicken fingers and pasta, but was thrilled with her sirloin.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingFor both special occasions and simply a nice dinner, X20 is always our go to restaurant. We always leave happy. The menu offers so many great dishes. We love the octopus, the sashimi, BLT salad, escargot, quail, cowboy rib eye, salmon, and on and on! The service is very warm and professional and we always get a bear hug of a hello from Peter. Our last visit Peter gave us a taste of his new Slovenia Vodka. We loved it. X20 and the Moderne Barn are our favorite Westchester restaurants. No need to dine anywhere else!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways ExcellentWe have been here many times and it has never been anything less than exceptional. The food, whether we get the specials of the day or standbys such as the Cowboys Rib eye or the Duck for two, is always delicious, inventive and bursting with flavor. The staff is friendly, attentive, professional and knowledgeable about the menu. We have gone here for special occasions with the family and for "date nights". We went this time with a Groupon and figured the menu would be more limited. But it wasnt and it was such a great deal! I would recommend this place without hesitation (and I often do). The views are lovely, the setting is calm and relaxing and it is a sure thing. Peter Kelly always gets it right!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMX2O is one of our favoriteX2O is one of our favorite celebration spots and it didn't disappoint5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely wonderfulWe came with a large family group of 13 (our outliers were 8 and 80 years old) from all over to celebrate a graduation. This restaurant came through. The staff was superb at taking care of our wide age range and widely varying desires. The food we ordered was well prepared and well timed. The soft shell crab special was perfect. The meatl eaters ordered rare and were glad they did (it was rare to medium rare). The wine list seemed stronger on the whites than the reds (we sampled 5 bottles). The desserts were lovely (cheesecake interesting, carrot cake icing excellent) and the special attention to our guest of honor (Fordham graduate) was great. We had a huge round table in a corner but felt the best view... was from the restroom!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatFrom the moment you walk in, you are treated very special5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOutSTANDING OVATION ;-)There is so much to rave about! The personal touches from each member of the warm and welcoming staff throughout the meal made the experience feel like it was tailored to our special celebration. Chef Peter Kelly personally greeted us and took the time to assure that each detail was satisfactory - with the quality of the incredible food is perfection enough. It's impossible not to taste the care and passion of a talented chef, and when that is beautifully presented in a scenic and romantic ambiance, the tactful touches of the knowledgeable and attentive Restaurant Floor Manager, the Server, the courteous bus staff all lead to perfection. Most amazing dining experience we've had, thank you all for making the celebration so spectacular!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I had dinner hereMy wife and I had dinner here on Mother's Day. While the restaurant was full, the service was impecable. From the greeting, to table service and wine, you really couldn't expect better. I attribute this to management. Owner Peter Kelly was working that day and he really was working. We had a terrific window table, looking south to NYC. Dinner was a prix fix full menu with quality and wide selections. The ahi tuna appitizer was excellent, while my wife had the seafood crepe, also very good. We both had the Skate wing, pan seared, delicate and flavorful. Bottle of wine with dinner and outrageous desserts. My only "issue" was maybe just a bit too much food for me - however, I ate it all without regret! Great dinning experience.Recommend highly5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe river view is beautiful,The river view is beautiful, presentation of dishes great and the service is wonderful.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstanding!!We have eaten here twice and loved it. The wine list is extensive but offers moderately priced good wines.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways dependably excellentThis was our 6th ot 7th visit and everything was excellent as usual. We (me, wife, 2 children) had dinner for Mother's Day (eve). Peter Kelly, chef/owner, visited our table twice to chat and check on us. X2O is always consistently good food, service and, of course, the view of the Hudson. Definitely Manhattan-level cuisine experience in the 'burbs, which is quite difficult to find. We've brought 3 different sets of friends here and never have had to worry about whether they would like it.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a very enjoyable diningIt was a very enjoyable dining experience. Good food, good and attentive service and great view....Great breads.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful evening.Sat upstairs where the view was wonderful. The noise level is quiet, and as always the food is excellent.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA beautifuly dinning experience.My husband and I had dinner at X20 Friday night for the first time. The food, delicious, excellent wine & before dinner drinks. The ambiance, which takes on the views up & down the Hudson River & Palisades, lovely. Spending much time dinning in Manhattan, we so appreciated the fact that all of the tables are so wonderfully spaced apart. This & the view creates the beautiful & relaxing dinning experience. It also appeared that it would be great for outdoor dinning. The service was personal and excellent. We definitely plan on returning.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing PorterhouseThe Porterhouse was one of the best steaks I've had. Cooked to perfections and impeccably seasoned. The appetizer, cocktails and dessert did not disappoint either. In all, a memorable evening. Looking forward for a another visit.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMX20 Consistently OutstandingBeen there about 5 times now
Food has been outstanding every time
Worth the trip from Manhattan
Railroad station is a brief walk5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing.Simply an amazing experience. Hands down best chicken I ever tasted in my life. Pricey but worth it. Butternut squash bisque is great as well.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWatch out for the appetizers.Watch out for the appetizers. I ordered the mango salad. It was very well presented on its fine china plate. But, so little for the big price. It actually was about 1/4oz of freshly finely cubed mango pieces arranged with flower petals. No green lettuce at all. The entree Roast Duck was execellant although a bit pricey. I would recommend this restuarant for special occassions. A night to remember. Avoid the appetizers and be ready to reach deep in your pockets when the check arrives.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food combined withDelicious food combined with excellent service in a relaxed and polished way5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding.The food was outstanding. The restaurant could use a touch up. A little hectic to get there. Have to go through some tough neighborhoods.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect view of the HudsonThe weather was 'perfect' and the view of the Hudson was 'perfect'. The restaurant is worth the train ride from NYC for its ambience and the view. I had eaten at X2O before and had loved the experience. My friends were new to and loved the restaurant.
My steak was 'well' done not 'medium rare' as ordered. I pointed this out to waiter, but there was no offer to change. I did not pursue with a complaint, as my friends were enjoying everything that they had ordered, and I did not want to mare our urban adventure.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Anniversary DinnerX2O is a Yonkers Waterfront Gem! For my one year anniversary they pulled out all the stops and accommodated my request for a great table with a view; my husband and I gazed at the NYC skyline and GW bridge while feasting on decadent seasonal dishes. The service was impeccable and they even brought out a special "happy anniversary" dessert plate which I didn't even ask for. They value their customers and go beyond to ensure your dining experience is one to remember. I would definitely recommend X2O to my friends and family.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!!!

Only problem is getting there.

The food is always superb and the service is outstanding. Love it!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful experience, withA wonderful experience, with spectacular views all around. You feel like you're on a boat on the Hudson. To our left, we could see the GW Bridge and the New York City skyline and to our right we could see the Tappan Zee Bridge. The food was outstanding with service that made us feel like honored guests. The chef came out to ask us how our experience was. I had written in my OpenTable reservation that it was a birthday celebration for my fiance. I only put that in to request a table with a nice view. When they brought our desert, they had very tastefully written on her plate (in rasberry sauce) "happy birthday." That was very nice of them.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a long experience.It was a long experience. We sat down at least 30 minutes after our reservation time of 7:30.

Exceptional food!!!!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply the BEST!!Why would you go anyplace else- especially for a special occassion? We dine out often, and can tell you that the service at X20 is always impeccable. The food is delicious and the wait staff strikes me as genuinely thoughtful, like it's their mission to impress you. We took my parents and kids to brunch on 4/7 and everyone was very impressed. Special thanks to one of our waiters, Larry, who made Dad feel like a king!
Every app and entree we ordered was sensational, and Dad had the best dessert- the lemon tart. Some say X is pricey, but a high end brunch for $50 pp including tax and tip is a value and the view is incredible no matter which table you get. Go and Enjoy!!!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I enjoyed ourMy wife and I enjoyed our dining experience very much there as we have always had in the past.
