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
  • "What can I say, service was great and my plate was empty after every course!"
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "From the warm greeting at the door to the end, service was attentive. Food quality was excellent and portions were a nice size. Three of us started with the seafood crepe, which was fantastic! The fourth had the BLT salad, and she thoroughly enjoyed that. For entrees, two had the porterhouse steak, which was OK. It could have used some more seasoning as it was a little bland. It was prepared as requested, no problem with the degree of cooking. I had the duck, which was slices of tender meat cooked to perfection without an ounce of waste. The fourth person had the Skate, and he said it was excellent. For dessert three of us went with the chocolate lava cake, and the fourth had the peach specialty. All were enjoyed."

  • "If you're looking for a special place to celebrate someone special, X20 is a great place to go. The menu is filled with creative, and unique selections. The food presentation is artfully designed and served. The service is excellent. The attention to detail is apparent in every aspect of the restaurant. The decor is tasteful and serene. A beautiful view is enjoyed from every table in the room. The route to the restaurant is somewhat circuitous, but in the end, worth the trip. Thank you X20 for a delicious birthday dinner."

  • "Fantastic brunch. Food is delicious and staff are exceptional. This is a wonderful brunch and great value for $40. It includes unlimited Proseco and additional chef additions to try during the meal. We love it here and celebrate our birthdays at this restaurant with beautiful views of the Hudson."

  • "I have dined here on multiple occasions, both for lunch and dinner. X2O never disappoints. There is always an innovative twist that keeps the menu fresh and exciting. Service by the waitstaff was exemplary, as usual."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "X20 is probably the most beautiful restaurant in Westchester. It sits above the Hudson River , decorated in a modern setting overlooking the water on all sides. The food is wonderful as the chef. Peter Kelly is the owner and I"ve followed him at all his other restaurants. His price fixed lunch is a bargain. Name my no. one place to dine and I would pick X20 without hesitation. Service is elegant; place is elegant; food is superior. What a plus for Westchester."

  • "Outstanding food, service and ambiance. Views from NYC to the Tappan Zee Bridge added to the overall experience. This was our first time having brunch here and it was so lovely. We have had dinner at X2o many times and they have been consistently top notch. This time did not fall short. I would highly recommend this restaurant to others."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Great service, nice ambience. The food was very good, but not excellent, at least not every single item. Tuna tataki was told would be slightly seared, it wasn't, just plain raw. Bread was not served warm... Regardless, we enjoyed our brunch very much and most likely will come back!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We loved the restaurant but wanted a place to have drinks. There was no seating on the outdoor space thru the dining room. Perhaps we missed it."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "My husband and I went to X2O for the first time for our anniversary dinner. Everything was excellent, beginning with the views, and following with a memorable dinner and excellent service. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone celebrating a special occasion."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The menu and the preparation of the food are consistently the best in the county; and comparable with any/all in NYC! The entire staff is attentive to detail, and knowledgable; which enhances the evening! The pricing is such that you can enjoy a "night out", and not go "only for a special occasion"."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We have been here before so that is why we went back again. I wanted to take some colleagues to this location because I knew how wonderful it was. We met at the bar first, again a beautiful scenic view of the river. We made it there as it was still light out and then started our dinner just before he became dark. There was a slight delay on a couple of drinks we ordered. They brought the drink, apologized a couple times and said they were on the house. We thought nothing of it because it was not that big of a deal. Later on after dinner we ordered dessert. Delicious. Then comes the surprise, they brought two more desserts to us and stated those are on the house too. They went above and beyond over a small delay. OUTSTANDING."

  • "Dinner with exceptional views of the Hudson River. Service was attentive and informative. Definitely professional staff and well prepared dinner. Have enjoyed Brunch on other occasions and that is a gem also. Two hours of delectable food and drinks..."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The service was fine. However, when my guests and I were seated they tried to seat us in the middle of the room when there were numerous tables available on the right side of the dinning room. When I requested a window table I was told that there were none available, and that the table by the window was reserved for a party at the bar. We were offered a table in the back which was acceptable, but I noticed that other guests that arrived nearly an hour late not accommodated. We made a reservation through open table and did not feel that we were completely satisfied, considering that they knew that it was a special occasion."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Excellent food and service. The views are spectacular!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The view is very beautiful, especially around sunset. Our dishes were very good but a continual Asian theme in our dishes stops me from rating it excellent. It would be very difficult to find fault with this establishment."

  • "My daughter's bridal shower upstairs was awesome from reports I received. Went off without a hitch. Service spot on and the food, as usual was raved about. Downstairs the guy's had a great brunch with only a couple of service hiccups. The constantly flowing proseco stopped flowing for too long. One of the signature passed appetizers wasn't offered. Long wait for coffee which we had to ditch in order to join the end of the shower. I had to ask near the dessert course. I expect flawless service here because this is the standard the restaurant sets and maintains. As I said just a few hiccups. Disclosure, the restaurant was full and our bridal shower added another 30 guests."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "I have been here several times... And the experience was always outstanding... Not this time... The appetizers were just mediocre... I ordered the tempura shrimp that was tasteless ..my friends ordered the lobster bisque, and the tuna tartare... The bisque too was tasteless... But the tuna was very good... The main courses were all excellent... We had the short rib ravioli, the salmon and the steak... No complaints there! The desserts were all just ok... Nothing special... My biggest complaint is with the pass around service... We had to continually ask for the lamb chops or the cocoanut shrimp to come out... We had to wait at least 20 minutes after we asked..when they finally showed up the taste was amazing... But it was very frustrating."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "The place is gorgeous, right on the Hudson River. Great views. Great food. Unlimited champagne for a great price. Would recommend to anyone."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Really nice ambiance and food was superb. Only complaint was waiting 45 minutes for a table even though we showed up at 8:30pm, on time. It cut into our ability to have dessert and we had to rush out."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • " Very good service - Wonderful views - Uninspired food. The appetizers were not very tasty, and seemed like parts of other dishes thrown together for visual effect. My white fish was crumbling and falling apart in a wildly over-salted broth."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Food was good though steak didn't come medium rare as ordered (more well done). View phenomenal, especially on a clear evening. Get there early to watch changes in light & activity along the shore and water. Scallops, risotto & special roasted cod all really good. Dessert of panna cotta disappointing but should have known better than to order since it was made with chamomile (prefer vanilla or other flavors). Main waiter seemed like he was just going through the motions but drink server was lovely. Service a little slow. Overall a special place, particularly because of the view, good food, & quiet space allowing for conversation. Remember to ask for floor that you want to sit on - choice of 2nd or 3rd, the latter only accessible by stairs."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "X2O is a fabulous restaurant -- potentially, the best in Westchester. Terrific food, service and a lunch prix fixe that can't be beat. On top of that, the location on a pier in the mighty Hudson River afford magnificent views of the NYC skyline, Tappen Zee Bridge or Palisades. Worth a trip for a special occasion or just a great meal."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I took my Husband here for his Birthday. And I gotta say it was a Wonderful experience. The food was great, my only issue was dessert. The dessert was very mediocre and bland. Major set back - if you plan on eating from the specialty menu they send out every week - let them know before they seat you. I wasn't aware the have separate seating for those who plan to eat from the specialty menu. This was a bit disappointing especially since we were looking forward to this menu, it was not until they sat us and gave us the menu when I realized something was missing and as I requested the specialty menu, the waiter offered to move us. Of Course at that point we had nice seats and we didn't want to move!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We have never been disappointed eating at X2O, whether it is brunch, lunch or dinner. The food is always consistent and prepared well with wonderful flavors. The wait staff is always very attentive and courteous. The views from all the windows are very scenic. Always recommended."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "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."

  • "Great food, great view! Food always good, only complaint is coffee was a bit muddy.(this time). Also the chef Peter Kelly) was there and comes around and insures everything goes well and greets you"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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."

  • "All 5 of us loved every minute. One person had never been there before. Everything was perfect. It was a belated father's day gift for my son."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Great place, great staff, great entrees, as for the appetizer, it depends on what you pick. The desserts are mediocre. Please do not waste your $$. Not worth it at all. Overall, 4 stars."

  • "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."
