One of the wine glasses was dirty with a bit of wine left from the last service, no apolgoy as we brought it to their attention. The bus boys pouring the water and placing the bread down did not say one word of acknowledgement. We could barely understand the waiter , who seems to have been promoted from Buser to waiter for the night. The service needs attention and the menu needs to be changed it’s been the same for years.

I made a reservation at a restaurant week. I did not know that there is no restaurant week menu on Sunday brunch. The restaurant was lovely, but I was very sad that I couldn't eat the restaurant week menu.

Went for Restaraunt Week and as usual, had a great dinner with my family. All the food was delicious and plentiful. The wait staff was very attentive. The only negative is that it seems as though the restaraunt needs some sprucing up. The state of the decor is not commensurate with this caliber of restaraunt. Perhaps either cleaning or replacing the carpets and some painting is in order.

Our dinner was , in one word, excellent. If you get there soon, a great seasonal choice is the flavorful "mushroom cappuccino" (exquisite soup). The St.Peter's Fish (tilapia) was also perfect. We have been here before, and service was always spot on - this time we did have a brand new server (not at all experienced) who tried very hard - and will probably be really good with some experience under his belt. He was, we all agreed, earnest in his efforts to please. We will definitely be back.

The service was very slow. We arrived at 6:30pm and were seated right away. Restaurant was not full at that time. The appetizer was not served for at least 45 mins. Then the entree took a long time and the dessert was served two hours after we were seated. The food was very good but it is hard to sit for a meal for almost three hour. The people seated at the tables near us were served and finished way before we did.

Waitstaff was incredibly friendly and very accommodating. Apps and main courses were absolutely delicious for HVRW lunch. I was disappointed by the desserts since they are very sweet, but I have turned away from sugar, so I'm probably not a good judge there. My husband enjoyed them (but did agree they were on the sweet side). I had read some reviews complaining about the decor - we didn't mind it. There are a few scuffs and cracks, but the only one that really stood out was the crack in the window. Otherwise, we felt it was very cozy and comfortable.

Honestly? Food was great. Could use more wait staff during special deal times. But more importantly Mr. Kelly needs to spruce up the place. Lot needs paving building needs paint and touch up on the outside. Just my opinion. My guests thought the same.

Although Restaurant X is a big place, each of the dining rooms has a unique comfort and coziness to it. The food is prepared and presented beautifully with wonderfully balanced flavors. Just like X2O, the dining experience always leaves you happy. The wait staff is very attentive and personable. We love Peter Kelly's restaurants and his well trained staff.

My wife and I went to Restaurant X during Rockland Restaurant Week. Despite being crowded for a week-night, the food was, as always, excellent and the service was prompt and professional.
I highly recommend Restaurant X.
My only criticism is that I really believe it is time to update the physical facility.

The first thing I noticed about Restaurant X was the great service. My boyfriend and I were provided water, bread and butter within a minute of being seated. The service was great throughout the entire dinner and our water glasses were never half full. The food was just amazing. I cannot explain how good the flavors of the dishes were and would instead recommend anyone to just experience it for themselves. My favorite and most memorable part of the dinner was dessert. I wish I could have spoken to the owner(s) to let him, her or them know that I really appreciate how special Restaurant X made my anniversary. I had selected anniversary as the reason for my reservation booking, but I didn't expect our desserts to have Happy Anniversary written in chocolate sauce on the plates with a candle. 5 stars in every category and 5 stars overall!

Lovely lunch during HVRW. I met a friend for lunch and was pleasantly surprised at their wonderful menu. Many times during restaurant week other restaurant’s special menu is somewhat sad and unappealing. This was not the case here. Many interesting choices to decide between. We decided on the butternut squash flan and the gnocchi, both were delicious. For entrees we got St. Peter’s Fish with a bit of Rock Shrimp in tasty sauce and the chicken dish. The sauce on the Rock shrimp was delicious though I wish there had been more as the fish, which seemed like Tilapia, needed the sauce to bring it up to extraordinary. So those bites with sauce were delightful. It was served over basmati rice. My friend enjoyed her chicken dish. Sadly can’t say much about it as I didn’t try any though she enjoyed. We both knew in advance that dessert was going to be too much and we happily took it to go. We did enjoy the Cabernet which came locally from Hudson Valley. Topped it all off with some cappuccino and some wonderful time catching up with each other while enjoying the pond out the window. The rooster and chickens provided much entertainment. Our waiter was excellent. We will be back again.

Been going here for years and Years, but we were so disappointed. Place is completely dated, which we knew but now the food quality has gone down, wife had a fish dish that was sub par and my pork chop was undercooked, huge no no!

The positive side is that now we know and both agreed it will be our last ever visit.

Very disappointing for such a well known restaurant owner.

We had roast chicken, beef Wellington and coconut cake. All were good and beautifully presented, the coconut cake is enough for two.

Initial service was a little sluggish in a busy Saturday. After a couple of visits when we hadn’t decided (ok we were yapping) the waiter disappeared and it took 3 tries and ~20 minutes to get him back.

We are by the fireplace near the bar. Pretty.
