We were seated in the bar/lounge area which is our preferred choice as we come here often. It has a working fireplace burning real logs. Great for ambiance. We shared the burrata appetizer which is always good. Today we went for the specials, venison loin in a port wine reduction and duck breast in a light brown gravy. Both meals were great as usual. We’ve never had a bad experience here. We recommend this place to everyone.

Not worth the price. We have been to the restaurant a couple of times and liked it at the beginning, not the last 2 times. While making a reservation we requested a table by the fireplace. Upon arrival we were told we could not have the table we wanted. I tried to get a clear answer why - but unsuccessfully... I understand why later - the staff kept it for their friends... I ordered duck breast and wanted it rare, but it was well done and thinly sliced... The previous time they kept the table for just one guy....

Don't think we'll ever return to the restaurant.... We want to be treated differently...

Peter Kelly never disappoints. Perfect spot for our anniversary. Everything was on point. Some of the best venison I have ever had. Cool vibe as well. Need to go back for a regular night out as well.

From appetizers to dessert, the meal was perfection. We had 3 cheese board, tempura shrimp and Burrata. Everything was fresh and delicious. For our entrees we ordered 2 beef wellingtons, a filet mignon and a NY strip steak, the sides potato truffle purée and roasted potatoes with broccoli rabe. The meat was cooked perfect, the sides were terrific as well. For dessert we had the coconut layer cake, chocolate ganache in phillo, an array of sorbets and ice cream and a baked Alaska flambé at table. The service tonight was outstanding. Our waiter was personable, and very responsive. We were celebrating a birthday and they made it a special night. Thanks to Peter Kelly and his wonderful staff.

The food was excellent! My wife ordered the venison. An unusual dish that was prepared perfectly. Even the sides were good enough to write home about. I ordered the salmon, again perfect, light crispy crust on top & perfectly cooked. Absolutely delicious. The service was attentive, but they kept their distance until needed. Great attention to detail. I had posted a note in Open table that it was my wife's birthday & they put a candle in her dessert for her. They are a little pricy, our meal was $200 but that included 2 meals, 2 appetizers, wine, coffee & dessert, so weel worth the price. I've paid more for lousy restaurants.
I highly recommend Restaurant X! For us the experience was nothing short of perfect.

We came for Thanksgiving. The Turkey dinner was horrible. Cafeteria style processed meat there were similar reviews from prior Thanksgivings but I decided to take a chance. Worst Thanksgiving meal ever. Really obscene actually for a dinner four 4 that cost over $400 for our family. Awful evening.

Popovers are a must! The service, ambience, and food are equally impressive. Also great from special occasions.
