A word from X2O Xaviars on the Hudson
X2O Xaviars on the Hudson is Peter X Kelly’s latest addition to the Xaviars Restaurant Group. It sits in the water on the only turn of the century Victorian pier still in use on the Hudson River. X2O’s Main Dining Salon's 25 foot vaulted ceiling and 3 walls of glass frame offers views of the George Washington and Tappan Zee Bridges, as well as sunsets over the Palisades. Guests encounter dishes incorporating classic French technique with Italian and Spanish influences, and Asian embellishments which create a wholly original cuisine unique to the Hudson Valley. The Dylan Lounge is a vibrant, up-tempo space with a sophisticated and playful bent that offers guests more dining options. Guests are invited to sample a variety of small plates and sushi, while dining at the Communal Table, sushi bar, or at traditional banquette and table seating.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We travel a LOT and are foodies. Spain is a favorite destination and love the seafood especially octopus. That is why I was sp surprised when I had the octopus at X2O. It was the best I have ever had. just World class. The soft shelled crab was very good, as well as the short ribs, but the octopus was head and shoulders above those."

  • "Wonderful, inventive food, beautifully presented, amazing view, and appropriately attentive service, including two visits by Chef Peter X. Kelly himself. It was a special birthday dinner for a friend, and he loved it. I will be back."

  • "My wife and our friend have dined in the best restaurants in NYC, Johannesburg and Paris. They both were impressed with the unique and tasty dishes and the tender loving care that each of the servers and managers provided. Located on a pier above the Hudson the location adds to the "this is special" experience. Life is short enjoy Peter X Kelly's offering at X20 Xaviars."

  • "I was looking forward to dining here for my birthday. Ignored for 10 minutes after sitting, we finally received our menus. No water, no bread. A waiter then came over to recite the specials and his accent was so thick we could barely understand him. No water or bread until we asked for it. Forgot my drink order. I ordered a a single scoop of white chocolate cherry ice cream. Long after my cappucino arrived the waiter dropped a chocloate lava cake on the table. When we informed him of the mistake, he gave me two scoops to "ake up for it. One other beef: I know it's on a river, but 8 of the 10 appetizers were seafood. A little more balance would be nice.I don't think we'll be back."

  • "X2O is a beautiful restaurant. The food was superior. The food was much better than it was when I went a couple of years ago. My family and I loved it."

  • "I was expecting so much more from this restaurant considering the excellent reviews. However, our entire party of 4 left wondering what the fuss was all about. The food was good but definitely not outstanding. Service was exceptional. I know of other restaurants that deliver on fine dining at this price level and I will not return."

  • "Location very nice. Not easy to get to from nj. Thought it would have been more direct. Service was excellent. Skate fish for dinner left a bit to be desired. Tasteless and extremely thin portion. Basically pan fried Snap peas were very fresh and good. Sat upstairs which seemed like we were removed from main dining area and activity. Dessert was excellent."

  • "There are only so many places one can have a special night out and have a beautiful view as well. X2O, is one of those places. Even on a night with thunder and lightening storms, the view was amazing. This makes a special occasion dinner even more special. Food choices were interesting although not all choices tasted as great as promised. Tuna tartar was very bland, but a white tuna sashimi special was amazing. We have been here before and I would say it is mostly about the ambiance, as there are better places to go for the food. They need to "step up their game" to keep up with some of the other foodie choices, especially at this price level, as it will set you back quite a bit."

  • "I've dined at X2O Xaviers at least 20 times since moving to Westchester County five years ago and have always had an excellent time - the menu changes frequently; this Thursday evening I had soft-shell crab that was unbelievable followed by strawberry shortcake for dessert - both were fresh, delicious and to die for. The service staff is always attentive, very thoughtful and happy to make the dining experience the best that they can. I am a dirty martini fan and again, the bar has never disappointed."

  • "Celebrated wedding anniversary & my husband's birthday. We had great amazing views of the Hudson River, and the GWB. So beautiful even at night. Everything was to our satisfaction. Great food. X2O made it so very special for us. Two dessert plates, creme brûlée (excellent presentation ) , with "happy anniversary' written on it. And a " happy birthday " on another small dessert plate (courtesy of X2O) with ice cream , decorated with kiwi around it . Very nicely done. Thank you so much for a lovely evening. Everyone at X2O deserve a huge applause for an excellent service. We'll definitely be back ."

  • "X2O has it all - no exaggeration. The food is absolutely top notch, the service is extremely professional and the views are unparalleled. At lunch, the pricing is even a bargain. As you can tell, I just can't say enough good things about the experience you'll have here - and I told you so!"

  • "Came here for dinner with my husband for a romantic night out. The restaurant is at Yonkers pier, which overlooks the Hudson River. Very scenic view and beautiful when the sunset. Funny though if you look at the sidewalk, you can see family playing and chilling by the pier and towering apartments right behind. We were on time for our reservation at 7:30 but was told the table was not ready. Why? If I had booked in advance, I should have the table at the time I booked right? Service at the restaurant was good, though the tables were all quite close together, and it was Sunday evening and most tables were occupied which meant that noise level were moderately loud. Food was excellent though. Restaurant is looking so tired and needs renovation"

  • "Food was outstanding! Great place for special occasion. The only issue I have with the restaurant was a $26.00 service charge on top of tip & tax for my wife & me ."

  • "We have been to X2O Xaviars many times,and each time the experience and the food has been consistently excellent. We have recommended X2O to friends and they too have have similar experiences. It is definitely worth the 45 minute drive to have a wonderful evening."

  • "My wife is allergic to a variety of foods and drinks. If she does have a 'taste' she usually ends up taking a Benadryl. However, we had a great birthday dinner Friday night and the Benadryl remained in her purse. Thanks for the great dinner H20--A dinner without any allergic reactions!!!"

  • "I called and made a reservation one week ahead. I asked for a quiet, romantic table as we were celebrating her birthday. When we got there, they took us to the perfect table. The service was outstanding, the food superb, ambiance was very romantic, the staff could not have been more accomodating or more professional. There is a reason this group of restaurants is very successful. They know how to be in the restaurant business. Anytime you need a good restaurant go to one of their's."

    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "X20 continues Xavier's long held reputation for excellent cuisine as well as providing varied choices whether a diner prefers vegetarian, vegan or traditional meat or fish. The menu alone would make the diner happy but the restaurant also provides the natural ambiance of the Hudson River by surrounding diners with walls of windows and unobtrusive lighting. Personal celebrations are noted by the servers and service is helpful without being intrusive."

  • "I wanted to go to a restaurant on the water. Four of us went for lunch on a Thursday afternoon. The dining room was full. We were happy to find the prix fixed 3-course lunch which offered us plenty of great choices. As always, the service was impeccable at X20 and the food & wine were wonderful! Great views too, an overall fabulous experience! Prix fixed lunch= great value for terrific food, views, service and overall ambiance. Can't be beat."

  • "I went on their recent Groupon and had a truly lovely meal. We were seated upstairs whichmade me uneasy as we were brought there but turned out to be wonderful. It is quiet and the view is smashing. The food was excellent. None in our party disliked any dish and all were thrilled. I now wish I had bought more than two of these Groupons. We ordered the spicy crab pasta app and it was delicious. I shared the "Cowboy" Ribeye and it was cooked to perfection and was enormous. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "My wife's grilled octopus was, in her words "amazing" and the quail was delicious. My seafood crepe was a little bland and the duck entree was a little tough although the rice was excellent. The cabernet I ordered started out well but then grew acidic (the bottle may have been open for a few days). They offered to open another bottle of wine, but I had moved on to their champagne which was wonderful. The chocolate cake with grand marnier ice cream was delicious. The coffee was very good. The service was excellent and the view was spectacular."

The Food, the Staff, the easy Transportation, Meeting friends on the Metro North station across the street from the restaurant, some friend coming from the south me coming from the north, meeting on the train platform, perfect! No worries about parking or drinking and driving. The view is mind blowing, the food is stellar, the staff is a delight. a must for most people that think the world ends at 125th st. LOL! And lets not forget the sunday brunch!"

  • "The food, service and view were great. We were not disappointed. Having been there for the first time, we thought the sign of the restaurant was too dark and not obvious enough. As a result, we had to drive along several times to find a parking space. Only to realize that we had just passed the place several times already."

  • "This is our 6th time at X20 and, as usual, the experience was excellent. We had cocktails at the bar before being seated. The bar was busy but the service was still very good and the bartender mixed some very tasty drinks for us. We were seated in the upstairs dining room. It is smaller and more intimate than the main room downstairs. The view looking south to the GW Bridge and Manhattan skyline was beautiful. Our grilled Portugese octopus appetizer and diver scallop and wild Alaskan salmon entrees were beautifully prepared and delicious. Service, as usual, was excellent. This is our favorite of the four Peter Kelley restaurants."
