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.

    Four of us had the prix fixe lunch: Seafood crepes were a bit oversalted, but otherwise very good. Chicken/risotto and rack of lamb were excellent; the portobellos and taleggio were a bit disappointing (not enough mushrooms/cheese; too much arugula; uninspired dressing). Deconstucted cobbler was good, except for overly gelatinous panna cotta. Nice prosecco.

    We took our friends there for a post wedding celebration. We had a wonderful time and never felt rushed. Waiters were very professional. Food was delicious. My husband had the octopus salad and I had the butternut squash soup, both were delicious. My friend had the Quail and she said it was very good. Her husband had the steak and really enjoyed it. I had made note on the reservation that we were celebrating and they brought a nice surprise over dessert. Overall, a great experience. A bit pricey, so I would save it for special occasions. I would try to get there at sunset for NYC skyline views.

    It was our 30th anniv & X2O fit the bill perfectly. Our group of 10, at a large round table, with 2 bottles of champagne, ignited the festive mood. Our choices included the seafood crepe, the butternut squash soup and the fig salad (special) for appetizers, the duet of pork, the braised short ribs and the NY strip for entrees, and the pumpkin tart, organic carrot cake and a flourless chocolate dessert. Each course was on point and beautifully presented. The service was excellent--attentive without rushing us, including the hostess and coat check attendants, who were warm and welcoming. The entire staff let us fully enjoy our time at X2O, our guests, our meal and the wine. We felt like a king and queen. It was a perfect evening.

    I had made reservations 2 months in advance for Saturday night. We get there and were seated upstairs though I repeatedly said I do not like it upstairs. You seem like you are an afterthought -- and kids seem to be placed here as well. The service was mediocre at best. I felt that all the staff was being trained. Long waits for water. I asked for specials and was told they would be told later -- it was way over 10 minutes before we heard them. Asked t make sure the coffee was hot. It came luke warm. It took 15 minutes to find anyone and ask for fresh, hot coffee. The menu hasn't changed much and after a few times this year all of us felt it was a bit uninteresting. We decided to take a long break before returning.

    The food and service were excellent. we have been coming here for years the only thing I would say about the decor is the entry way elevator is really shabby so the entrance is not as inviting as it once was.Inside the restaurant is lovely but it may be in need of a slight redo as well.Do not let that stop you from dining there as this was just a observation..it is absolutely wonderful .Ask for a table with a view.

    Went for husband's birthday. Got res & called in advance, letting them know & requesting a window table. Although party before us was 20 ms early for her res, she got a window table - we waited 30 ms. Sat at bar, and I ordered a specialty cocktail w ginger - really disappointing. Indicated I didn't care for it - bartender didn't seem to care. He was more interested in watching TV and chatting w other staff. Left the drink at the bar. Dinner was just ok - service was erratic. We said we'd like to order wine, after our second cocktail (also just ok). Halfway thru dinner, waiter asked about wine. Too late. Dessert came (no candle & I had let the hostess know it was a bday) and the panna cotta was tasteless. Wont be back any time soon.

    Had a wonderful night out with my husband. Although not all tables have a scenic view, ours looked out over the George Washington Bridge. I am sure they took into consideration that it was our wedding anniversary. The food was delish and even though we didnt have room for dessert, the waiter came out with a creme brulee with two candles in it. So special....we will return.

    This was our fourth time at X20. As usual the food was very good. The waiter and floor captains were quite good. It seemed everyone was ready for dessert at the same time and it was slow getting our dessert menus, but that really was not a big deal. However, when we left there were three hostesses standing at the front desk. There were not customers in the area except for our party leaving, not one hostess said good night, hope you enjoyed your dinner or please come back again. One would think after dropping a fe hundred dollars a simple good night and thank you would be in order.

    Overall I had a very nice dining experience as the entrees were fantastic and the service - at least at the beginning - was excellent. A few things to note - 1. The waiter knew nothing about the wines. When asked about the 2 Chardonnays on the menu the waiter couldn't tell me the difference between the two other than the price. 2. The wait staff seemed to have forgotten about us at the end of the meal. It took about 20 minutes to get the dessert menu after our dinner plates were taken away. And all we wanted was the check. Overall it was a nice experience. Very fancy.

    You cannot beat the view at X20 Xaviers on the Hudson. It is literally "on the Hudson," with a gorgeous panorama of the river, the bridges, and the palisades. There is not a bad seat in the house, since it is constructed with walls of glass on 3 sides. The service is impeccable, with even the maitre d' serving and asking if anything was needed. The food is very good and plated beautifully. A real bargain is the 3 course prix fixe lunch menu served Tuesday through Friday for $25. We've been know to drive 1-1/2 hours just to enjoy it and the views.
