We were Extremely pleased. It was a very enjoyable experience. The Bully Boy has maintained it’s excellent reputation as an outstanding, fine dining restaurant that we have frequented for over 15 years. It always exceeds our expectations.

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.

This restaurant never ceases to amaze. Best restaurant in Hudson Valley. From vegetarian to carnivore, the menu choices have you covered.

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

Wonderful experience as always. A real thrill when Chef Kelly comes over to table for a conversation. At some point you need to try the Cowboy Steak for two and you will see why he slayed to Iron Chef!

The restaurant X serves prepares high end culinary dishes. Overall, I enjoyed it; especially the deserts. My only criticism is that the place looks like it needs a renovation. I would not suspect that the parking lot pavement would be in such disarray. Overall very good meal.

The food was exceptionally good! My husband had the tempura shrimp for and appetizer and I had the Ahi tuna. Both were flavorful and excellently seasoned. We had a pasta dish with a pesto cream sauce, pine nuts and shrimp. I dare say that was one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had. Now my chocolate desert like a bomb. Such deep dark chocolate intense flavor. The carrot cake was also good. We sat by the bar but next time I would ask to sit in one of the more open dining rooms in the glassed in porch. Service was fantastic!

We went to X for Restaurant Week lunch. The food was very good and the portions were generous. We enjoyed the risotto and tuna tartare appetizers, the roasted chicken and pork entrees, and the carrot cake dessert. The dessert portion was also generous.

The service was friendly but a bit rough around the edges. The clientele skewed a bit older on a weekday afternoon and fashions ranged from flannel shirts and jeans to well dressed.

Free valet parking was welcome as we are not getting any younger.

Restaurant X & Bully Boy is a classic in Rockland County. The food is excellent and the service is very good. Tables are spaced well, and chairs are comfortable. That said, the restaurant, itself, is in need of refurbishing- especially the entrance hall and the bathrooms. Not dirty, just needs a re-do.
To go here during Hudson Valley Restaurant Week was a real bargain, and the food was just as unique and well prepared as the regular menu.

"X' has never failed to please in terms of the food quality and the service. This most recent trip was for my 59th birthday, and an added bonus was that it was during Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. Mr. Kelly's restaurants are among the few high-end eateries that I feel justify their price tag, but being able to experience the same quality dining for $35 per person was an added bonus. Kelly and his kitchen staff are masters of "sauce" and both my Short Ribs and my Mushroom Ravioli were sauced with savory, complex flavors that I frankly would have been happy to swim in! Service was as usual helpful, efficient and not overpowering (though by the end of the meal we were the only ones left in the lovely widowed side room and surrounded by 4 un-bussed tables... felt a little weird, but if that's the only negative one can give, a restaurant is doing very well). Nice to see that the establishment hasn't fallen into "older restaurant doldrums" as happens so frequently. So I'm happy to still recommend Restaurant X and Bully Boy Bar.

Delicious food, wonderful ambience. We had 7 PM reservations but didn’t get to see you till after 730 because it was so busy. The man who seem to be the manager was wonderful. They had some tardy customers so he found us another table in a bit of location. He was doing everything he could to make the experience pleasant.

We took advantage of Restaurant Week. The food was delicious as always. However, the main meal portion was noticeably smaller than in the past. We both had braised short ribs. Dessert was fabulous. We did miss the delicious macaroons usually served along with the check although we noticed they were at the station.
