X2O Xaviars on the Hudson
The atmosphere was amazingThe atmosphere was amazing the food was fabulous! The portions were generous for a fine dining restaurant and everything we ate from the shrimp to the steak and dessert was outstanding.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMView over foodStill shocked that the food does not live up to the restaurant's name.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and views!I can't say enough good things about this restaurant: the food was excellent: the Berkshire Pork Chop was huge, tender and had a nice smokey taste, the lobster crepe had actual CHUNKS of lobster in it, the ham-wrapped quail was delicious and the view is to die for.
Peter Kelley actually came in and said hello to every table in the place; I can't say that I've ever had an owner/chef actually come into any other restaurant and ask how things were. Impressive!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMStill greatEveryone cares about providing a great experience. Peter Kelley himself toured the tables. Portions were agreeably sized and nicely presented. We'll be back.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall greatGreat place to celebrate any occasion or just to have a nice relaxing dinner with family, friends or that special person. Price is reasonable, great selection of wines which are affordable (we got a bottle).
Reservation was for around 7 pm so we were able to watch the sunset over the Hudson which was spectacular!
Service was very good, not the annoying always coming over asking questions, even the chef came by to say hi!
Would definitely return!!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinnerMy wife and I went here to celebrate our anniversary and we sat in the Dylan Lounge. The food was phenomenal. The sushi was fresh and the dishes were so creative. We will definitely be back.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBest of Many WorldsX2O delivers on many levels - food, service and ambience. The three-sided glass walled room woffres astonishing views before sunset and the food is American creative and darn good. Plated and served well adds to the overall pleasure of a great evening meal.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExquisit ExperienceThis was my first visit to X2O and it was to take my father out for his 65th birthday. The ambience, scenery, service and food were excellent. The staff came over several times to check on us, even when the sun was setting to see if we wanted the shades to be lowered. Our waiter didn't seem to mind taking our picture on the deck outside either. To add, I had a special request that I noted when I made reservations online and it was followed through without me reminding anyone. That is what impressed me the most! I would like to thank the staff including the hosts for being welcoming. I'm thankful for a great experience! Well done X2O!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectionThe food, wine-by-the-glass, ambiance and service were all outstanding. The only thing I would mention is that I thought I would try Peter Kelly's Slovenia vodka. So I ordered a Slovenia vodka and tonic and they served it in a dramatically tall narrow glass. There was so much tonic in the glass that you couldn't taste the vodka. In my opinion, a poor choice of glasses on the restaurant's part if they want to demonstrate how wonderful their vodka tastes.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was as expected forThe food was as expected for a Peter Kelly establishment; very good.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful dinner!we celebrated a family birthday and it was great - food and service!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!Everything was terrific! The food, the view, the service was all top notch! The town around the restaurant is a little sketchy but the restaurant more than made up for it. Parking was cheap and a breeze by using the valet.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMUST TRYWE VISIT ABOUT ONCE A MONTH..HAVE HAD LUNCH, BRUNCH AND DINNER AND AT ALL TIMES X20 NEVER FAILED TO PLEASE...SO, IF YOU CAN AFFORD THE TAB, WHICH FOR THE OVERALL QUALITY, IN THIS DAY'S MARKET, IS FAIRLY PRICED, GIVE IT A GO. BEST WAY TO SAMPLE THE WHOLE DEAL IS THE SUNDAY UNLIMITED PROSECO BRUNCH AT ONLY 38 DOLLARS. YOU'LL LEAVE SATISFIED AND HAPPY, DETERMINED TO RETURN. PETER KELLY WHO OFTEN COMES OUT TO PRESS THE FLESH IS A WARM, CARING MAN, AND ADDS A SPARKLE TO THE VISIT.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday CelebrationThe resturant was a fantastic choice for a birthday celebration for a special person. The service was friendly and attentive and the ambience was outstanding. I hope to visit again soon for another special occaision!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular experienceWe have always enjoyed our dining at X2O. Only terrific things to say about the food, service, ambience and overall experience. Wish we could afford to eat here every week, but we save it for special occasions and it is always very special. Can't wait for the next time to visit X2O. Highly recommend.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a special occasion.The brunch service was terrific! The views of the Hudson were beautiful, the waitstaff was friendly and efficient and the food was very good--delivered as promised and quickly--although it had the feeling of being a bit mass produced--like we were 4 guests at a big wedding being served one of 200 plates prepared for the occasion. Still, everyone enjoyed the visit and we will likely return again.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBest service . Staff is soBest service . Staff is so attentive. Food is fabulous. 4 people dining. All loved their food. Accommodated likes and dislikes of vegetables that came with entrees. Could not have been more accommodating.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMamazing food! amazing place!amazing, delicious, beautiful! if you haven't been to this restaurant yet, make a reservation now! My boyfriend and I went for a romantic dinner and were not let down. The dining room offers 350 degree views of the river with floor to ceiling windows and impeccable service. The food was some of the best I have ever had.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistantly wonderful experienceAlways pleased with the wonderful food preparations, service, and ambiance.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMreturn 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 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 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 AMFirst time at x209 guests with fairly sophisticated palates were all pleased with their choices. Selections ranged from rib to duck and fish. Service started off slow and disjointed but picked up upon our waiter being replaced with what appeared to be maitr'd5/18/2013 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 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 AMBeautiful views, delicious foodPerfect Mother's Day dinner, we were not rushed and the food and service were excellent!5/12/2013 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 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 AMDisappointing Service on this VisitI have eaten here many times with small groups or just as a couple. The food and service have always been extraordinary and the views are to die for. On this last visit for brunch, everything was delicious, as usual, and the service was initially enthusiastic and efficient. Something happened, however, between appetizers and the main course and it all began to slow down to the point where we waited an interminable amount of time for our dessert and finally, the check. So disappointing for a restaurant I like so much! Couldn't help noticing also that the upholstery on our chairs was stained...I will return because the food and views are so special, but I hope X2O can resolve those service problems!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!!!

Special attention was paid to our wedding anniversary and there was a personal touch from all the wait staff and servers.
The cheesecake desert special was a nice addition.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
